Having enjoyed the first book, Fire Pool, I looked forward to reading the next in the series and I wasn't disappointed. We continue to follow Nesta and her companions in their quest to save Mundo from the hands of Lord Mool. This book is perhaps darker than the first as more villainous people and creatures join the fray to gain power - the Pysgod are certainly the stuff of bad dreams! The story maintains the pace of the Fire Pool as it moves from one location to another to follow the fortunes of those fighting to save Mundo and everything it stands for. The different threads are drawn together well as the tale heads towards a conclusion which has already been 'foreseen' in Fire Pool. Although aimed at the mid-teens market, this series has enough depth of story and character to keep adults interested as well. I look forward to the third book in the series to learn how it will all end and who eventually will gain the upper hand.
