Not like the first book at all.: Which isn't a bad thing, just don't go into this book thinking it'll be like _The Well-Favored Man._ Willey goes back in time, long before Gwydion was born and Argylle transformed into the beautiful realm it had become in the first book.The tone is harsher, much more solemn, much more tragic. While I miss Gwydion's first-person viewpoint, Willey has a larger story to tell, and needs a grander canvas on which to paint it. I supppose this could be read on its own without first reading _Well-Favored Man,_ but readers of the first book will be nodding their heads, seeing the seeds of later conflict and entanglements sown here. It was also gratifying to learn more about the touchstones of this universe only hinted at in the first book.

Disappointing prequel to The Well-Favored Man purports to illustrate the backstory leading to that book's events, but contains massive contradictions in incident and character. ( )

It is a proverb often quoted but seldom applied, that all a gentleman needs to travel is a good cloak, a good horse, and a good sword.
