I don't read a lot of fantasy, but I loved this series for its liveliness, its likable and easy-to-believe-in main character, Rap, and its take on magic. The cultures and regions we explore as we go on Rap's adventures are well developed and vivid, and Duncan has a fluid writing style that I really enjoy.
