really liked it
Read in December, 2009

This book is slightly more complete than book 1. Oh, I don't know that it would make much sense without book 1; but it doesn't leave you hanging in the midst of all the story lines quite as badly. That is not to be confused with having any real resolution, it just has a more satisfying ending than book 1. None of these books are really books in their own right. They are each 1/3 of a very long book. On the other hand, they are very long books I can't put down, think about between volumes and after over 1700 pages still really care how the story ends.

Like the first book the characters and their motivations are very well drawn. So far, the world building is quite interesting, and I am looking forward to book 3. However, having stayed up until 3:00 a.m. or later two nights in a row; I am wondering when I will have the time for book 3.
