    " good but wanted to see the struggle ends with the Heron man better than it did. i wanted it to end by a great fight or something.. it was a good book anyway and the author totally improved his language and narrating skills. "

    " I thought this was much better than the first. Ambrose's language and thought process was quite simple in the beginning, but it evolved and made me happy :D I'm happy it wasn't a really whiny POV this time. Definitely better than I expected after the first book. Wish it had a more romantic element. "

    " this series puts me into a spell. I can't stop reading and I sigh a lot when I'm forced to put them down. Wonderful fantasy for older teens and adults. "

    " Good follow for Cup of the World. Nice story showing that what we have planned for life isn't the way it usually turns out. "

    " This didn't quite live up to the first book (The Cup of the World, I thought; the pacing was a little too slow, and the alternating POVs didn't hold me as well as Phaedra's sole POV, but the worldbuilding and atmosphere remained excellent. "

    " This book was just okay. It had a good story plot, but was not very well written. It was a bit too gloomy for me as well. "
