Being from Rural Australia myself I instantly connected with the main character (though I'm not overly ill :P). I felt the world he found himself in quite believable and the characters realistic. I myself am quite similar to Jorden Miles and because of that my favourite character would be Midnight (get 'em hehe). The story felt well written and it leaves you wondering on a few things that were left unsaid, personally I can't wait for the next book to see what happens to everyone and to find out how all the loose ends are tired up.
This was a great squeal to the first novel, and I really liked the character development, and I like midnight even more now, hehe. The story had A few interesting twist and I enjoyed the finale, I was left guessing until the end. I cant wait to see what troubles Jorden has next. :P
Well this book took Jorden's complications to a new level, and it tied up a few ends as well as made some new ones. :P
I enjoyed the character interactions with Jorden and Helen. This story also brings new and interesting characters like those of the house of Gorgan and aestri Ilkaena-Inealma. You also get to see more of the Shards outside of Maeruna, and even when things seem to calm down Helen finds a way to spice things up.
