This is a very dark fantasy book with good plot and a fairly serious problem.
The good: plot. The story is very dark with lots of deaths, violence, rape, etc. Still, it makes you keep reading. You begin to care for major characters and want all kind of bad things happen to bad guys.
The bad: it might be my impression, but the book suffers from continuity problem. There is no smooth transition between different scenes. It feels like a bunch of static pictures with description of each of it. This still might be highly subjective.
Overall, an enjoyable read.
