This is definitely a must read book which an avid fantasy genre reader needs to look at. It breaks away from the common tropes in the fantasy genre at the moment which are heavily westernised and brings in more eastern (Chinese & Japanese) styles to the world. Some examples of this would be in the way that the feudal system of the book is more Chinese dynasty based but with western religious influences and also some of the armour and military troops are slightly more eastern based. I would also that this is a similar kind of story to game of thrones but with a twist and a lot less complicated as you don't have hundreds of separate character POVs. You could consider this story a wuxia story (basically Chinese fantasy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxia) in some ways but you can still read it in a western style. If you aren't into the fantasy story style you can try to read it, but you will probably be disappointed.
