Over at io9, Charlie Jane Anders posted a deep and insightful review of SEVEN PRINCES:

http://io9.com/5874601/an-epic-fantasy-that-doesnt-hold-back-on-the-epic

My favorite bits:
“There’s a determined rejection of the epic fantasy ethos of deferred gratification. The whole book contains about 10 books’ worth of story ideas and plot twists, in under 500 pages.”
       and
“You sort of wish Frazetta was still alive, just so he could illustrate some scenes from this book.”

Warning: There are some plot spoilers in the review, but you can read around them if you like.
