This is a great continuation of this series, you really get more in touch with the world the author has created, because for the first time, you are witnessing life outside Alogrenia. I love how clueless the main character is to her attractiveness to the opposite sex, she keeps getting new admirers wherever she goes. Though, I don't know how well I like the character she seems to have fallen for... but I'll let other people decide that for themselves. I'm very much looking forward to the third i...more
A really good sequel that sets up the trilogy finale well.

The introduction of the wider peoples of the world that Kira occupies is done with great colour and empathy. Values, customs and beliefs clash as the Leader of the Tremen an isolated community living within the trees seeks their old blood-ties for assistance.

Each character is well built with personal and cultural drivers. Utterly engaging.
Kira's world sounds amazingly beautiful, but has its faults, which is great!! To often the main characters are so perfect it makes me want to gouge their eyes out with a vege peeler! But, not this series =) The writting style makes it fit together superbly and easily creates the love/hate you feel for the characters.

I love this series!

I enjoyed this book far more than the first because I already had my head around all the odd names and places. It also had more action in it, which I found the first had lacked some-what.
A gripping read that won't let up until its done!
The choices that face Kira...will hopefully be resolved in the final book.
Wonderful book. I couldn't put it down. Earthy, compelling and captivating!
