A weak three stars. The plot's okay, but I just could care less whether any of these all-too-realistic whiny teenagers survive. The challenges the characters face are also too serial and quickly (if not easily) dealt with. I was mostly propelled by curiosity about the Ultima setting. I doubt it will be enough to get me to find and read the rest of the series, but it makes me think there might be some other Lynn Abbey that would be worth reading. She at least has a decent handle on verisimilitude, which is a quality I find lacking in too many fantasy authors.
