As always, Terry Brooks paints a great picture, even though this picture was mostly of a stone city and the travel to it. The characters are well developed, though I'd expect nothing less. I enjoyed Quickening and Walker Boh the most this time around, though Pe Ell was a very interesting character, a part of me wishes he had been kept around just a little longer. ( )

Well I finished it. Put me to sleep quite a few times. I agree with Oogod that it seems like Brook's is stretching out the series by being wordy. Seems to have forgotten some of the characters from the first novel as well since they only appear for a few pages.

I'll read the rest of the series just to finish it though. ( )

Great addition to a great series. ( )

Not a bad story line but I think Brook’s is a bit wordy almost to the point of stretching out the series. ( )
