I enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first book I didn t like the main characters as much as I had liked Rune in the previous book Rune had the better personality, and a common sense attitude that made me root for her success Robin, the main female character in this book, got on my nerves sometimes She was less ethical andinclined to take foolish or selfish actions without thinking things through I liked her husband Kestrel better, but he wasn t really a stand out charact I enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first book I didn t like the main characters as much as I had liked Rune in the previous book Rune had the better personality, and a common sense attitude that made me root for her success Robin, the main female character in this book, got on my nerves sometimes She was less ethical andinclined to take foolish or selfish actions without thinking things through I liked her husband Kestrel better, but he wasn t really a stand out character for me.The first 5% was a recap of Kestrel s story from the previous book I d just finished that book the night before so this was not exactly riveting reading, and the recap wasn t at all clever or subtle The author might as well have labeled the first chapter Recap Kestrel is standing in the pouring rain, cold and muddy, trying to get their wagon unstuck from a muddy pothole Naturally he has nothing very pressing on his mind so he takes a moment to think about his entire life s history The story did getinteresting after the recap and it became increasinglyinteresting as the story progressed The main premise is that there is growing prejudice against Free Bards, gypsies, and non humans This directly impacts our main characters because they are both members of the Free Bards and Robin is a gypsy They also have friends who aren t human Robin and Kestrel therefore decide to try to find the source of these attitudes and determine how serious things are.I downloaded this e book years ago from the Baen Free Library Hopefully it s just this version, but there were a lot of OCR errors and it became quite distracting For example, at one point our characters moved aujay from something My finger had just starting to twitch in anticipation of being asked to look this strange word up in the dictionary when I realized our characters were actually moving away.The book is written in a similar tone as the first book It s relatively light and fluffy and it s a fast, easy read Even though it tackles issues like prejudice, there wasn t really anything unique or insightful about the way it was handled It s just a device to help tell a good story There were some things brought up in this book that I m hopeful we ll learnabout in the next book We met some interesting non human characters but didn t get to learn a lot about them There were also a lot of references to a Cataclysm and the implication that the world was at a higher level of technology before that event, so I m curious about that According to the Goodreads series page, there s another book set between this second book and the third book called A Cast of Corbies and numbered as 2.5 in the series I was going to read it, but I couldn t find the e book for sale anywhere and my library network doesn t have the physical book in any of its branches I decided I didn t care enough about it to buy a physical book, even if there are very cheap used copies out there So, I m moving on to the official third book.I m rating this 3.5 stars on BookLikes, but rounding up to 4 here on Goodreads Read in 2014 Read in 2009 Compared with the first of the series, this book focuses a loton the Free Bards and what they can achieve as a unit working outside of the law rather than on just one main character.I love how this book is a tie in with the first, though, and how the Ghost from the Hill is revisited The whole church and what it does to the world still freaks me out when I think back on it, so I am glad that Robin manages to help the Ghost out and hurt the Church in one go I Read in 2014 Read in 2009 Compared with the first of the series, this book focuses a loton the Free Bards and

whole series is excellent And the theme of music is also a great addition This volume follows the couple who were wed in the first book of the series Robin the gypsy and Kestral, who was Prince Sional before he abdicated in favor of his uncle They now have a caravan and are traveling But when they reach Gradford, they find things are in a very bad state a vicious priest has seized power and is working against bards, other entertainers, and women They end up going to Skull Hill, just as Rune did in the first book, and they manage to get the Ghost to help them I This volume follows the couple

the evil priests who fake miracles with the help of some renegade gypsies and their illusions.It helps to have read the first book in the series first, although there is enough backstory presented at the beginning and scattered throughout that this book can stand alone But I think you would enjoy itif you read The Lark and the Wren first
