The Judging Eye (Aspect-Emperor, #1)The Judging Eye by R. Scott Bakker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

i would give it five stars but the mines of moria was just a little too familiar in this setting…if you like tolkien, herbert than you will enjoy this thinking person’s fantasy. philosophy, religion, and just enough linguistic anthropolgy to make the grad school vernacular sing. highly recommended.
