"This thoughtful work should appeal to all readers of fantasy." - VOYA
I definitely liked the characters in this storyline. I would love to find out what happened once they returned home.
As always Mr Heyborne gives a fantastic performance to another great piece of the ongoing story of Recluce. I keep wondering when things will get repetative, but they dont! The story evolves, as do Modesitt Jr.'s characters. Thanks & keep up the good works!
