I found this book confusing, with too many different types of characters being brought into play. I was disappointed that the few references made to Earth were not followed up on. What's the connection between Earth and Panamindorah?
Also, what, exactly, are these wizards? Where did they come from, what are doing on this planet, what sorts of magic or whatnot can they do? etc. etc. What is the time frame with respect to the Cowry Catchers? It seems to be hundreds of years later, but it's hard to tell for sure.
Maybe we'll get some answers in the next Cowry book.

I recently discovered this author, and I love her! I read through Book 1 despite a serious migraine; and immediately bought the trilogy when I finished that one.
The characters are believable--even the sociopath; their motivations, reactions, and dreams are logical. The action starts quickly, keeps moving, and doesn't come across as contrived.
