Magnificent plotting, characters, world building
What a magnificent plot! This is a truly superb second installment in the series. Extremely absorbing world, characters and developments. The magic system is the most interesting I have ever encountered. Just love the characters, even the evil ones are full of gradients and interest. The author is possessed of a wonderful, artful writing style. The dialogue is beautifully constructed. The narration is everything a listener could desire. I have had to adjust my plans in order to keep reading. HIGHLY recommended for all ages.
