Enjoy, but allow yourself the luxury to read slowly, if you need to. There is a lot happening, even when it does not appear to be so. Every word you read will be important later on, so look for nuance. You will want to re-read this book later if you take a liking to this series, as it lays the groundwork for the next ten volumes.
Oh, and fasten your seat belt when you get to Ithamon, because after that it is a very fast and bumpy ride (and that's all I have to say 'bout that).
