This, for me, is the brain candy of the series. The Flame really doesn't serve much purpose beyond being a stepping stone between The Storm and The Mage, but I just like it so much. I really enjoy the hero and the heroine, and how their relationship develops. Perhaps because I also share a fondness for velvet, I don't know. In any case, aside from a few important minor characters, the rest of the plot is pretty much extraneous. The stuff with the Desalinator is interesting, but it has little to do with the series arc of Nightfall becoming a sovereign nation. I suppose you could skip it if you're in a hurry to get to Morg's book, but I definitely think Danau & Kor are a nifty couple.
