review 1: I didn't find all of the writing as good as Riyria Chronicles #1, but I did find the story equally as gripping. Writing is important because it determines whether you'll stay within the story or get pulled out because something made you cringe- sounded corny, didn't mesh with the story line, etc. I cringed a few times.
