After Tymon’s Flight, I was really looking forward to its sequel, Samiha’s Song. If nothing else, I wanted a continuation of Tymon’s adventure while learning more about the world that Mary Victoria created. And I expected that she’d throw some good philosophy in there as well to provide a little depth.

What I did not expect is what I got with Samiha’s Song. This book is deep, dense, and rich with meaning. In most ways, it completely eclipses Tymon’s Flight, which is unusual for the second book...more
This the 2nd book in the series and I definitely felt it had a more rhythmic pacing than the first. The author makes the assumption the audience is not cast full of dimwits and have actually taken the time to read the first book and remember who the characters are and where they have been. This may be a strange complement but I've read many a fantasy novel where too much time is spent in recap at the beginning. It always leads to a strange pacing where the book doesn't fully get going until half...more
What can I say about this book?

I can only tell you the truth - that this book is awesome. Mary Victoria has really done a fantastic job on book two. It has action, romance, sacrifice, adventure and intrigue. You can see the journey that Tymon and Samiha take as they are separated at the beginning.
Each character has their part to play in the greater tale and it weaves together really well. The characters were well written and engaging and Mary makes you feel for their fate.

There are twists and tu...more
Truly great new fantasy series - up there with Ursula Le Guin
Book Two of The Chronicles of the Tree series is even better then the first, Tymon's Flight. The author, Mary Victoria has created a fascinating world, peopled with wise and wonderful characters. The plot moves along at a good pace and the language is beautiful.
At the close of Book Two, the reader is left in no doubt that the third book in the series will bring all the elements of this exciting story to an original and satisfying conc...more
Samiha's Song is the second volume in Mary Victoria's Chronicles of the Tree trilogy. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the excellent first volume, Tymon's Flight, mainly because it took a while to get going, but it does the things the second book of a fantasy trilogy should do: it deepens the world in which the story takes place, introduces new complications, and prepares the main character for the trials to be faced in the concluding volume, Oracle's Fire. I think that should be a cracker.

The continuation of the Chronicles of the Tree saga - interesting with lots of twists - an enjoyable read
Another brilliant book by Mary Victoria. My only issue is with mistakes to words or missing words.
