The only thing I hate is the long wait for the sequel!,

This review is from: A Cavern of Black Ice (Sword of Shadows) (Hardcover)
J.V Jones' newest novel is quite brilliant. I bought it as a reward having finished my exams, and had trouble putting it down. From the vivid and sometimes painful prologue, A Cavern of Black Ice grabs hold of you, and doesn't let go until you've finished it.
As usual, J.V Jones has created a wonderful gallery of characters, all excellently described, both villains and heroes. The book is set in the same world as her first trilogy, A Book of Words, so old readers will recognize similarities, yet new readers will have no trouble at all, deciding to aquaint themselves with Ms. Jones' books starting with this.
I had a wonderful time reading this book, and can recommend it to everyone. Now I am eagerly anticipating the sequel, so I can find out what happens to Raif, Ash, Effie and all the others.
