Not much in the way of plot but it was fun in terms of action. I can't imagine 1000s more pages following this exact model, at least not with the reputation it has, so it must get more detailed from here on out. From what I've heard this volume establishes the atmosphere and the story gets more epic from this point forward. I plan on reading at least 1 or 2 more. If nothing else they're quick and entertaining. If the plot gets more engrossing, all the better.
