Like book 1, this is just a slow moving story. Lots of characters, lots of story lines....the reason it moves really slowly is that the same part of the story is told over and over and over again through different eyes. Its really hard to pay attention when you're going through another iteration of a part of a story that you've already heard. Every character in the story is overly serious and overburdened by the weight of their own awesomeness...I don't feel a lot of empathy for them and I find myself hoping that one or more of them gets killed off...of course if they do get killed off then their companions will be tearing their hair out and screaming about pain and revenge for the next 100 pages or so, so perhaps not. What a quandary!

Great fantasy, exquisitely told

This fantasy cycle, which concludes with The Darkest Road (not yet available on Audible, so brace yourself for a wait), is the very best of the genre. The epic battle brewing between Light and Dark is made more bitter by the addition of the Arthurian story, worked out once again here in the first of all the worlds, Fionavar. A magnificent series. But WHERE IS PART THREE!??
