I'm currently reading it for the first time. A while back, I found an omnibus edition in the "hurt" books section of our local bookstore, read the blurb on the back cover, thought it interesting, so I bought it. Since that time, I've bought an ebook reader, so I bought it (the omnibus) again, this time as an ebook.
Right now I'm in the first half of the second book. One thing is for certain, to me: The second book is (at least so far) a lot slower reading than the first. Probably because I prefer mysteries (but not detective novels) over warfare.
