So I liked this way more than I thought I would.
It was chock full of fantasy tropes, but for some reason it just didn't bug me. The story wasn't even all that interesting - old and new soldiers arrive at a city that is about to be sieged by a horde of a bajillion tribesmen. The siege happens. The end.
There was even a two page passage in the middle told from the point of view of one of the tribesmen that actually brought tears to my eyes. What!? Crazy. I never cry. (I also always tell the truth *shifty eyes*)
I was totally surprised and even though it was a little silly, I really liked this book. Will be checking out the sequels and praying not too many things get retrofitted.
