This is the second book in the Seventh World trilogy, and I enjoyed reading it as much as I did the first book.

The book has three distinct story lines, and the author switches back and forth among them. The first story line involves Nicholas, a lead character from the first book. He sets off following a mysterious voice, but ends up joining the cause of the Gypsies, who are being ruthlessly persecuted.

A second story line introduces new characters: a healer, a mountain man, and a family of the Gifted. They are pursued by the story’s villains, and in turn they become pursuers themselves.

The third story line involves Maggie, the protagonist of the first book. She is now part of a community of refugees hiding in an underground network of ancient tunnels. But as the growing community moves deeper into the tunnels, they discover that they are not alone.

These stories come together in the final chapters, and a battle takes place in Athrom, the capital city of the Empire.

On to Book Three!
