I know this is a thread for the series (which looks nifty from the short preview), but how are the books? I know a number of people here have read them, and I've sort of been looking for a new series to try out. Is it along the lines of LOTR or other fantasy-type books, or something totally different? Sorry for my ignorance, I really don't know anything about it other than what I've read here. Sorry if this is the wrong thread, I think there is one for the books somewhere here too, but I didn't have time to look right now.
