Very good follow up to the original book in this series. The character development continues as more of their background and abilities are brought to light.
The conflict between magics and law and common man continue to be a center point to the story line and does not falter in keeping the interest level high. The fact that there is two laws of magic comes into play and you faced with deciding as you read which is being brought into play and how it will interact and what the results will be. The author takes some unexpected twists and turns which I found to be enjoyable and which kept me guessing at times.
I highly recommend this book for all ages and especially for those that have an interest in magic. I look forward to the next book in the series.
