Book 2 of this series did not fail to keep me turning the pages. There is more character development of the main characters, a few secondary characters start to take on a new shape for themselves in this story and will likely have bigger roles later on. The story is shaping the lands and the intertwining politics of the secondary characters nicely -of course all of which tends to hinder the main characters in some way, but it keeps the storyline moving along quite nicely.
If you like adventure with solid interesting characters to keep you interested in reading, this is a good book for you. I look forward to reading more of this story.
