"The story's exciting, the good guys are really likable, and the elements of magic are believable....Seldom is the second novel in a series better than the first, but Smith develops this story with more clarity and finesse. A taut and satisfying fantasy." "The story's exciting, the good guys are really likable, and the elements of magic are believable. . .."
