I greatly enjoyed catching up with a number of old friends from previous anthologies. Most notably Jen and Ree, who have left the city to try to make a go of it in the possibly even more dangerous environs of the forests.
The Dann family is fleshed out further with the history of their father's demise, and why the oldest brother got passed over for the promotion by the younger.
Even the mercenary Toughs employed by Miklamar make an appearance.
There are many more interesting, well written stories than almost any other collection I've read of it's size.
That's a big win for Valdemar fans, like me..now buying and re-reading them on my Kindle, and donating my paperback editions.
'Tis the season!
