The second book in the Wayfarer Redemption trilogy continues this effective tale from a master fantasist. The world Douglass portrays stands with the most inventive creations of fantasy literature. This is definitely a middle book in the series, and knowledge of the previous volume is vital, but fans of the first will most definitely not be disappointed—particularly with Faraday, Caelum’s mother, who provides a strong female counterpart. Douglass’ characters, both good and evil, move beyond stereotypes into flesh and blood.
