The best thing are the many believable characters. There are at least a dozen I feel I know now and more I can't wait to learn about. Most books carry one or two charactres its amazing Stanek can carry a dozen. Plus the baddies are way cool.
Everyone always seems to be talking about Valam or Adrina or Vilmos. How come not much talk about Stanek's great baddies? They never seem to get their due. They're not in the books much but they are incredibly cool, and well thought.
