I found this one quite good. The prose was great and it was quite well written. The mythology angle especially was pretty interesting. For instance, some lands had a moon for every descendent of the great Khan while another had a sun that rose in the west and set in the east. The problem is that despite all the positives, this book didn't really grab me. It also didn't help that I thought it was a stand-alone only to find out it's the first in a series. I'd recommend the Range of Ghosts to others, though I haven't decided if I myself will read anymore by this author or not.
