Really enjoyed these books, I was a fan of the Prophet of Panamindorah so was a bit wary at first of these new charactors but I was hooked from page 1, I read all 5 books on holiday, I couldn't put them down, I was so intregued with the story with all the twists & turns, nothing predictable at all. I've even read the first part of the follow up book online. can't wait for it to be finished.

I liked these books. The first two were wonderful. I really enjoyed the characters. Silveo is by far my favorite. Definitely a mythological feel. Much
More "adult" in feeling than the " Prophet of Panamandora".

The Guild of the Cowry Catchers by Abigail Hilton

This is a good story that is hard to classify. Calling it a fantasy epic is fair enough, except that I don't generally like fantasy epics. I feel it could have been a mythic-leaning science fiction novel (in 5 volumes) if the author were interested in making it fit there. Anyway, there are several wonderful, memorable characters (more would have been too many). The plot has plenty of unexpected twists, yet feels mostly driven by the characters. The biology references both mythology and details from earthly biology. The politics features many layers of deception and misunderstanding. There is not a great deal of sex in the story, but what there is has not been toned down or modified to cater to the wishes of the easily offended.
