Following on from Nights of Villjamur, this book takes the main characters and moves them to Villiren, a practically lawless city, where some of them face an invasion of an alien species. Brynd and Jerry’s encounter a whole variety of interesting and often nefarious characters as well as weird and wonderful creatures. There’s a lot of action as well as a long battle. Magic also plays an important part. It’s well-told and there’s another volume to come.
