Rated 1 out of 5 by from More of the same... Short and sweet: if you liked the first book in this series, you'll probably like this one. But it has the same plodding pace, whiny 'heroes', and sense of endless waiting that "Winterbirth" suffered from, and I really can't recommend it. Especially since the best characters are the villains, and are probably doomed to die...Thumbs down, with a yawn of boredom to boot.
