ABOVE HIS PROPER STATION
This second book in The Fall of the Sorcerers series finds our loquacious hero Arend Marau on the run. Marau is a complex and richly drawn character, and there is no doubt that this novel belongs to him. Class strife, political intrigue and clever schemes set a rich and sumptuous table for the sophisticated reader. The transition and opening story arcs are as one might expect in the second book in a series, though Watt-Evans successfully delivers a complete work that stands on its own merits.
