The poorest of the trilogy. Typically of a middle book this is bridge between the far better first and third, positioning the major players for the finale. Sadly this is the case for most trilogies. Authors have a great start and a cracking finish but the mechanism for getting from the former to the latter is the difficult part.
Having said all that Julian May has come up with a new approach to the fantasy genre with some very original uses and limitations.
If you enjoy fantasy you'll enjoy the trilogy
