Gardens of the Moon was recommended to hold me over until the next GRRM or Robert Jordan not-finish. The story is rich and multi-faceted, but it really needs some editing. There’s just way too much going on, and a combination of way too much information and then some hand-waving when it’s critical to get more information. I’m interested in the series, still, but the book is a bit rough around the edges. 6/10.
