Deepwood: Karavans #2

Overview

Diviners have told Audrun that the child she carries must be born in a haven of peace, far from her war-scourged homeland, but as she flees she finds only far greater danger. For her karavan is overtaken by Alisanos, the deepwood-a dangerous magical forest that harbors not only demons, gods, and other otherwordly creatures, but also its own sinister intentions-and which may have already claimed Audrun and her child for its own.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

At the start of Roberson's complex sequel to Karavans (2006), the mysterious sentient forest, Alisanos, which has moved for the first time in 40 years, surrounds series heroine Audrun, who has given premature birth to a daughter, Sarith. Rhuan, the demigod disguised as a karavan guide who tried to protect Audrun's family, continues to guard mother and child, calling upon his semidivine cousin, Brodhi, for grudging assistance. Other denizens of the deepwood offer aid to Audrun's four older children as Alisanos begins to transform them. In the human world, the karavan settlement has been destroyed by Alisanos's movement. Injured Ilona, the diviner, has lost her gift of reading hands. Jorda the karavan-master, Mikal the tavern-owner and Bethid, a courier, help the few survivors while furthering plans of rebellion against their cruel Hecari conquerors. Readers will be impatient to see what happens in the next volume. (July)

    Once again, Jennifer Roberson creates a fantasy series worth re-reading. I'm currently on my second reading of Deepwood in anticipation of The Wild Road. Can't wait!

    Deepwood is a great follow-up to Karavans!!

    I finished this book the other day and can NOT wait for the next in the series. There are so many smaller storylines weaving themselves throughout the book that you never lose interest. Jennifer Roberson is an excellent author who creates great characters and stories, without going too far off the deep end with unbelievable tales. She uses enough descriptives so that you can believe the worlds that she creates could be real.

    Alisanos is a separate world with two suns and no moon that exists in the DEEPWOOD separated by a no man¿s zone. The inhabitants consist of devils, demons, monsters and benevolent creatures as well as 1,000 gods who jockeying for position in the pantheon. Two dioscuri, the products of a mating between a god and a human, are in the mortal realm on a journey that if completed successfully will give them their best chance to fill their heart¿s leisure and be for one considered worthy of becoming gods.------------- Rhuan tried to save as many humans as he could when the DEEPWOOD moved but he and an adult pregnant female are trapped in Alisanos Audrun gives birth to four months early but she s a full term infant. Alisanos claims her other children as part of that realm taking the offspring away from their mother. Audrun with Rhuan¿s help seek the children two of which are in danger while two are raised by a lonely woman who explains that once in Alisanos a person can never leave because they begin to change and are not accepted by humans. Audrun needs to find her children including the infant that was taken by a flying demon but first they must meet and accept the judgment of the 1,000 gods.--------------- This second novel in the Karavans series is filled with action, pathos and spellbinding drama. Audrun¿s husband Davyn is desperate to find his family and though he is a supporting character he looks like he will be a major player in the next book in the series. Audrun is one of the mentally strongest characters to grace a fantasy novel because she endures so much hardship in her desperate search for her missing children. Jennifer Roberson has written an enchanting high fantasy family drama.------------ Harriet Klausner
