really liked it
Read in July, 2010

Sequel to A Cavern of Black Ice. The main characters were separated from each other in this one: Ash went off with the Sull at the beginning, leaving Raif behind in a strange scene that isn't executed well. He tries to follow her but gets involved with the Maimed Men. Jones explores their harsh little culture for a while, but his honor from his clan clashes with the intent of the Maimed Men leadership and he goes off on his own to find the Fortress. Fortress was pretty cool as she describes it. But she didn't seem to explain why Raif was the one destined to destroy the thing that came out of the Rift, he just feels like he is. There was deus ex machina type stuff at work in resolving the plot.
Did not resolve the issues that the previous book left hanging, like what happened with Raif's uncle's family. Also, one of the main supporting characters from the previous book dropped off the planet, apparently.
