    World-building is excellent. Characters are strong and become very personal to the reader. The portrayal of oriental culture leaves you wanting much more. I wish this author SEAN RUSSELL would write more stories like this. The second book in this duology is called Gatherer of Clouds.

    A really wonderful pair of books. Great plotting, deep characters and a very rich world. Everyone should add these two books to their must-read list.
