In this second installment of the DarkGlass Mountain Trilogy, Sara Douglass continues to weave together her fantasy worlds and memorable characters. She takes relationships that we think cannot be salvaged and melds them back together into unbreakable bonds. She transforms ancient evils into even worse evils. She brings deception and betrayal to new levels. She truly is a master of the concept that everything must get worse for the characters in a story. Yet despite it there are moments of love, hope, and joy within the story. It is a magnificent tale, and a perfect middle book.
