The series gets a little darker here as Will and "Evanlynn" are captured and made into slaves in Skandia. Halt and Horace are off to save them, but there are difficulties on the way. Honestly, if I didn't already own the next book, I probably would have thrown a raging, red-headed fit about the ending of this one. I can only imagine people who started reading this series as Flanagan wrote them and actually had to wait for the next volume to come out. It's very much a cliff-hanger, though not quite on the level of author cruelty as the cliffhanger at the end of the 2nd book in the series. This book doesn't have as much action as the previous, but there's still a lot going on. It's interesting to see Will take a bit of a back seat and not really be the focus of the story. I'm very interested in seeing how the current plot will continue/end. These novels are truly serial- in the best sense. They keep the reader guessing and wanting to read more. I'm going to be really upset when I run out of books...
