    1. I thought it was a good read, a bit more straightforward than the previous Fourlands books (lacking some of the surreal elements caused by Jant's drug addiction in the earlier books) but still had an interesting plot, at one point the clash-of-cultures storyline did threaten to turn into a snowy version of "Avatar" but Swainston is obviously more cynical than James Cameron so it doesn't have such a neat ending.

    2. completely different than the other castle books - in that this a prequel with a pre-drugs jant (although you may see why he'd want to do drugs after this).oh and the cover is definitely different than what is displayed!there's a few interesting "cameos" - if you'd call them that as well. i enjoyed it wholly, but i'm definitely interested what happens next - in the new pentradrica. oh and i read the uk edition - better cover and i didn't have to wait for it to come to the us.

    3. It's been too long since I read the previous books in this series, but it didn't matter too much.As a standalone, this might seem thinner than it is with the full 3-book story behind it. This prequel takes Jant/Comet into the mountains for his first major assignment. He meets a challenging situation, and he's not exactly the perfect person to send, being a tad, er, flighty, impulsive, hot-headed etc. In this book we learn that in those days he wasn't very good at reading people and situations, e [...]

    4. In one of the previous books, there was an offhand mention of "since Dellin." At the time I wondered whether I'd forgotten something. This book goes back before the others in the series, even before Jant Comet's marriage and his cat addiction, to fill out the story, starting from when a lone Rhydanne shows up in the Castle courtyard demanding to see San. Awians are settling in Rhydanne hunting territories. The situation seems to be modeled on modern colonialism in some ways, but the Rhydanne are [...]

    5. So this book is a slightly different virw of Steph Swainston's world, without the drug induced alternative universe, or the giant insects. Turns out I really missed them. Without that, this one is a bit generic. Well written for fantasy but not a patch on 'No Present Like Tine'.

    6. I quite liked the first Fourlands book, but both the sequels suffered from various issues. This prequel works much better, in big part because it's a much more focused book.
