This saga has improved with each volume as each character continues to deepen. However, I was still distracted by all the similarities between the Circle of Light and The Lord of the Rings series.

I think I've mentioned before that I found a set of Niel Hancock books at my local thrift store -- a lucky find in my mind.

Hancock's books give me hope that perhaps I can be a writer too. They're fun reads -- certainly not at the depth of detail as Tolkein's work, to which he'll always be compared. I'm still bothered with the anachronism of guns and mortars in a fantasy novel, but maybe that's just a phobic twitch on my part.

This book was better than the re-read of book two. Though I am still not sure if I want to read the last book in the series. This book does end at a point where you do wonder what happens and would want find out if the friends reunite and finish their quest. I'm just not sure if I am ready to start that book at this time.

Book three - all three books so far a nice read. Interesting story line with Buddhist undertones.

No memory, no comment. As reviews go, it isn't very satisfying. maybe I can talk one of the Offspring into reading the series.

Niel Hancock started out from the Panhandle of Texas in 1941, and was on the ground when the Sky Riders went down outside Roswell, New Mexico. Even as a lad, that tweaked his curiosity, and then they touched off the Atom Bomb at Trinity Site, which put him on the trail of the Road to the Sacred Mountain, young as he was.

He grew up in that wilderness, always looking for clues to the Mystery, then d
