In Winter 1152, David Petersen continues his tale of mouse intrigue, glory, and honour apace. Rather than having the squashed rebellion of Fall 1152 simply fade into memory as a one-off plot to give the first volume some heft, we see that these things have lasting consequences and that the flames that leapt up in open rebellion still smoulder in traitorous saboutage.

This volumes lays more foundation for upcoming books as Petersen explores not just the relationships between the guardsmice, but investigates the political relationship between the cities between which Gwendolyn's mouseguard plays mediator. Further, it explores the recent history of the war with the weasels of Darkheather and hints at a dark future.

As much as I enjoyed Fall 1152, I think I may have preferred Winter 1152. The stakes are raised and we get to see more fantastic development of character as these mice begin to solidify themselves through Petersen's narrative track. I can't wait to see what happens next.
