This was a slow journey and I found myself almost giving up a few times. I'm glad I pushed through because this was a good one. The mythology was the best part. The Tradition and Questers and Ladderlock paths were so awesome - I've never read anything even remotely like it. It took a lot of explaining, so the world building felt kinda extensive. Worth it in the end, though. I stayed up the whole night reading it... it's 5am now and I just finished. Also worth it.
