Readers who missed the first book in the Karavans series will have a hard time
figuring out what's going on -- at least
at first. However, Roberson's prose is
compelling, the book's premise is well-presented and the pages almost seem
to turn themselves. This installment is a shining example of Roberson's sterling attention to detail. Fans of the first book, Karavans, can expect an all-nighter!
