Yeah, I've read the whole series. I'd give it a B+ with higher grades for the first two or three books. Kind of like Wagon Train (with a core group of major characters and fluctuating lesser cast) - that is - if the Wagon Train was really a bunch of hardened mercenaries. Pretty good collection of villains and enough magic to make things tactically interesting.
