How could they leave their great city so soon after it was 'fixed'? So tragic. It's great to see Nicholson can write a book for a more mature audience. More complex relationships present themselves-Mumpo's crush has developed into love. Nicholson is more brutal with killing characters and this continues into 'firesong'. Unlike 'the wind singer' this book leaves you with a hungering for the next one. It is still technically a stand-alone as there are no cliffhangers.

As with the noble warriors trilogy, this book is very Nicholson. He introduces magic but does not establish any rules. This effectively gives Bowman limitless powers but we just don't seem to mind. A very soothing style of writing.
