It wasn't until I got to the end of the book that I realized this was a sequel to Hickman's Aviary Gate. That being said, I really enjoyed the book! I never felt lost or clueless, though I could tell that the characters had a considerable past together. Enough was revealed about their previous adventures to ensure that I wasn't left in the dark. This tale focuses on three plots that are all connected by a large, rare jewel called The Sultan's Blue. There's a look at the life of a nun who was once in a harem, a troupe of acrobat women, and a gambler and his cohorts. I felt that there was a strong cast of characters and though they all had such strong personalities, they didn't clash. After reading this book, I purchased the Aviary Gate, so I can see how it all began.

Starts off slow, the mystery of the story itself will keep reading.

Better than first BUT reading The Aviary Gate is why I was SO captivated by the atmosphere of the setting and the tragedy of the characters.  This is not the  most lyrical writing but the author utterly captured me and transported me to an era of beauty, squalor, desperation, and nobility.   I hope for more from this author.
