really liked it

Well, I bought and read this book in one day, so what does that tell you? :)

This book continues the adventures of Isyllt, a necromancer in service to the King. When her orange coat (similar to police) friend Khelsea finds a royal seal hidden in the clothes of a dead prostitute, she brings in Isyllt to investigate. The investigation stirs up old secrets that dovetail into current assassination attempts and plots against the crown. Downum peopled the book with fascinating secondary characters such as Savedra, the crown prince's androgyne mistress, and Isyllt's old master Kiril, who hides secrets of his own. Part murder mystery, part fantasy novel, and all adventure, I recommend The Bone Palace to anyone looking for a solid, entertaining novel.

While it is second in the series, I don't think it's necessary to have read the first to understand and enjoy this book.
