I'd like to second that recommendation, Rebecca. I've also read the second
in the volume, _Prophecy_, and it gets even better. I've just received the
final volume, _Destiny_, in the mail, and I'm looking forward to getting
stuck into it. I agree that the trilogy is firmly in the generic epic
fantasy niche, but it does some interesting things with some old ideas, and
has a lovely romance to boot (which flowers in the second volume). I think
the framing device it uses, which turns out to be important to the plot,
makes it special enough to stand out from most epic fantasy.
