I read the first three books of this series last March in the omnibus Lords of Darkness now out of print and I loved it immensely. It was more of an intimate kind of love, one that slowly develops over time, rough patches here and there, perhaps moments of anger and a tinge of frustration. The frustration could have been due to a lack of detail in world building, or a part of the story meant to be clever but came across awkward. Regardless I grew to love the series for what it was and what it was trying to accomplish. Each of the books reads like a standalone so theoretically you can read them all in any order.
