I read the first book in this series over ten years ago, and while I remember enjoying it, virtually none of the details had stayed with me. So starting this, the second book in the Legendsong series, I had to perform all the mental gymnastics that you have to go through when you enter a series part-way through. Having said that, once I'd found my feet I really enjoyed this story. It's long, complex and thoughtful; the characters feel real; the world-building is interesting; and I really appreciate the fact that it revolves around two sisters, swept to a parallel world.
Side note: I'm getting well caught up on Australian fantasy now; I really need to do the same with New Zealand fantasy! ( )

Like the first book in the series, a lovely and thoughtful read. The book is massive, yes, but it leaves you itching for even more. ( )

Book description
After her crossing to the troubled world of Keltor, Ember develops the ability to soulweave - to dream of the past and of all possible futures - and learns that her twin sister is upon Keltor and in great danger. She must find Glynn and warn her before it is too late. But Ember is dying and her only hope of healing lies upon the mysterious island of Darkfall, in the form of the soulweaver Chieftain Signe. Time is running out for both sisters and for Keltor, for unbeknownst to the twins, their fate is inextricably bound up in that of this world. Only the mysterious manbeast Ronaall knows that the fate of Glynn and Ember's world - our world - is also at stake, for what befalls one world, will befall all worlds . . . Darksong is the second in the many layered parallel world trilogy, The Legendsong Saga, which began with Darkfall. The third and final book in the series will be Darkbane.
