It's not that Witch World is a bad book per se. I wouldn't say it's a good one either. The experience of reading it was like watching barracuda's circle in a tank. Nothing's really happening, but a lot could happen and feeding time is coming any moment. Just like carnivorous fish Pike's characters have little to no emotional depth to attach me to them. Nothing has consequences until everything does. I could see why some people might love it but it's really not for me. I'm going to pass on the rest of the experience and move on to books that are more up my ally.
