I find myself in the same camp as Hans, something of a compatible writing style, nice world and good character development, HOWEVER, killing off droves of "main" characters in each book, story going nearly nowhere, toss in how everyone left alive seems to be nearly as trustworthy as a scorpion.... I read the first three, hoping for any decent conflict resolution, but couldn't bring myself to get or even read the fourth one. I think I'll stay away from him any further, like I said, good writing style and character development, but too bloodthirsty for my tastes, and no real plot progression.
Personally I'm still casting around trying to find stuff to read that I haven't read countless times, while its nice to travel the older roads, its also good to check out some paths untrod.
