Brom also writes extremely three dimensional characters. It’s almost impossible to not understand every character’s motivations by the end of his books as he does a very thorough job of explaining how they think and perceive the world. In a way every character is correct and every character is a little bit insane, flawed, or misguided in their views so by it’s hard to decide who you want to realize their ambitions. Because the main characters in both books would… well… be considered the “bad guys” in almost any other setting it’s hard to conclude any sense of clear moral right. The worlds Brom creates have no clear black and white and it was hard to even say that one character’s motivations were any more just than another’s once you walk a mile (or a chapter) in the shoes of a characters you previously hated.
