Read in August, 2010

Very well plotted, very detailed account of the increasing pressure of Maitre D'Aspect Rhennethyl as his notoriety as a talented Imager builds through this second book of the Imager Portfolio. Every detail of the city and the culture is rendered in these spy/conspiracy fantasy novels. Heavy detail bogs down the action, where major events appear breifly but are discussed in large chunks of political dialogue. War looms, people die, and pressure builds for Rhenn, but the pacing is slowed by the politics and details.

Well developed world culture, too many details for my taste. Fans of political intrigue and conspiracy books will find what they are looking for in this fantasy trilogy.
