O! O! I loved the first one, and kept meaning to pick up the next in the series. I'm glad to hear it probably won't disappoint.

I think I may have to re-read the first one though, since it's been long enough for me to forget some important plot points - not to mention the characters' names!

I enjoyed the series, though Element of Fire remains my favorite Il-Rien book. I have not read the Raksura stories yet.

I enjoyed Il-Rien as well but my favorite was Death of the Necromancer. I didn't particularly like Raksura but you should give them a try; people kept buying new books in that world so clearly I'm in the minority.

Death of the Necromancer is my second favorite! Basically as time passes in Il-Rien my fondness of the books diminishes, which is not to say I think the fall of Il-rien books are other than great.

I swear I read this one, but I don't remember a single thing from the summary. Maybe I had it on the shelf, instead?

"Very much a middle book"—you know, in my twenties I thought Trilogy Syndrome worked the opposite way: the first volume takes a while to get going; the second volume is firing on all cylinders; in the third volume it turns out the author had more to say, but maybe not enough to fill a whole book. My evidence was LoTR, Gormenghast, and, um, maybe that was it.
