So many times a sequel doesn't satisfy, but this one does. Lawhead's story is interesting and exciting, and extremely well-written. I'm learning a lot about ancient celtic culture, too. He's done his research well.

I finished this book the day my youngest sister was born. I had attempted the series and struggled with the open section. The first few (actually more than a few) chapters are downright boring. The author drags us through a long narration setting the scene for the two main characters in the books.

My Dad had noticed the books and took this one to the hospital while we waited for the birth. My Dad share a long history of reading the same book together. Every time he put it down I would pick it up. It was common for us to both have bookmarks in the same book.

If you can make it to the second part of the book, the rest of the series is brilliant. Even the first part of the book is good once you know what the rest of it is about. It does set up a nice scene, it is just tedious.

Good again. The world painted is very vivid and beautiful. The characters are strong and interesting, too. ( )
