Haha.. yeah I have been doing the recommendation thing a lot.
As I've said before as well, you're definitely gonna feel overwhelmed for a bit. It's a big world to be put into and a steep learning curve where you're in the dark for a while, and the first book is by far the shakiest (while the rest of the series is consistent in how awesome it is).
The goodreads scores are indicative of such, as the first book has a score of 3.8/5, and books 2-10 all fall within the range of 4.2-4.4/5.
Good luck, dude!
