This book epitomizes my main pet peeve with romance books: contrived relationship strife and trying to create a happily ever after out of an irretrievably broken couple. This book starts out focused on Rokey and Flash and their marriage trouble.

So both of them are unhappy,thinking the other doesn't love them and feeling conflicted. Normal stuff. They don't bother to mention this to each other,though. Nor do they go to trusted people with relationship experience for advice. They stew and get pass

This sequel to “Orphan’s Quest” took me longer to get into, but it was well worth it. It was slow for me not because it isn’t a great story, but because I knew our happy couple was going to separate.

And certainly a clever enemy would take advantage of such an opportunity. But, I didn’t want it to hap ...more

I really liked the first one, but I wish I'd stopped there. The nice romantic glow is utterly destroyed for me (I get little if any satisfaction from the lovers reunited at the end) and the plot felt like a lot of boring running around to me.

The second book in the Chronicles of Firma trilogy leaves this reader eager for the final chapter. http://blogcritics.org/archives/2008/...

The book has a very slow beginning, but once the adventure begins it is very interesting.
