I loved the idea of the series: a clash of cultures, of political systems and beliefs. Not even in any particularly nefarious ways, just in a "let's discuss what works best for these circumstances" kind of things. There was some exploration of ideals, and the corruptions of ideas, and some other fairly good stuff.
But fairly quickly some pseudo-spiritual element was added into the mix, and suddenly characters didn't do X because it was a rationally good decisions, but because some prophetic vision told them to. Agency went the way of saber-toothed tigers (and we all know that saber-toothed tigers are cool animals, just as agency is a pretty cool feature for a protagonist to have!), and politics were largely replaced by mystical mumbo-jumbo.
If that is you thing, no doubt you'll like it, but I thought it ruined the novels pretty much. There just didn't seem anything to them anymore: just follow the visions/prophecies. Since everything is prophesied anyway what does the rest matter? I really don't get why authors like this plot device so much.
