This is a great sequel to Thinblade. I very much enjoyed the world, and I’d love to spend time to explore Blackstone Keep, which sounds like a fascinating place. I hope we’ll get to know a bit more about it in the sequels.
We have new dangers and adventures here, and we find out a bit about the Reishi Gates.
Isabel and Abigail are left in quite the predicament, and the book ends fairly abruptly, so make sure you have the sequel at the ready. I subtracted one star because of it, because I really loathe open endings and cliffhangers, and here’s a pretty mean one.
Luckily, that series is completely published, so I don’t need to wait for publication.
Again, Derek Perkins narrates this wonderfully and brings the story and the characters to life.
