Though I didn't find it as compelling as Storm Constantine's Wraeththu books, Sign for the Sacred is a memorable novel about journeys, power, and perception. A couple of the storylines were slow at times, but I did enjoy reading Lucien's story since it revealed more about the central figure, the prophet Resenance Jeopardy.
