Ms Lindskold's characterization is superb. They have a sense of humor and different personalities which, as one might suspect, sometimes conflict with each other (some don't even like each other and they are on the same side). This makes for a very pleasant and believable read. The plot moves very well and I found myself consuming the 400 + pages without knowing it.
I liked this sequel most because it focused on a different set of characters in solving the plot crisis, so we get to see these characters using their unique skills. Jane is very consistent in both plot and characters, so we are NOT treated to discontinuities in characters to conveniently get out of a bad scene. She also has the ability to describe scenes without bludgeoning us to death with detail, which is very refreshing.
I must say I dislike giving maximum ratings, just in case the author does better. In this case as in the first tale, Changer, I feel the author deserves a "Bravo" well done, and if she does better, I will just have to deal with it.
So, in case you missed my point, I like this author and this tale and believe both needs to be read and enjoyed (if not, no offense is meant by stating the obvious).
Legends Walking is a worthy sequel to an interesting and novel creation.
My only real complaint is that she has apparently left this story line behind when it would seem that more could be written about the athanor in current human society.
I go back and forth between "Changer" and "Changer's Daughter". When I'm reading the first, it's the best of the two, but then I read the second, and I just love Shahrazad's story. Jane has done an excellent job of writing a sequel as good, or maybe even better, than the first!
Now we can hope for a third book in this world?!?
Changer's Daughter (Athanor)
