If you enjoyed the first book, the second of this trilogy will leave you speechless. Our hero Poldarn has returned to his supposed homeland with someone who may, or may not be his grandfather. As far as his appearance is concerned, he most definitely is one of their own, but he has (or rather, doesn't have) one very important thing. What that thing is, is the ability to read people the way his supposed family can. Has he lost this strange power during his travails over across the sea, or did he ever have this ability to begin with? And what of the mysterious crows? But more pressing matters come to the front, such as a marriage to a neighboring family's beautiful youngest daughter, and the volcano that appears to be blowing its top. A man could be forgiven for not wanting to spend any more of his energy to figure out just who he is, but for Poldarn the twisted truths that he will come to learn in this, the land of the raiders are perhaps more important than he realizes. This book was great, and the end is both shocking and unique (I've not read a book like it before). It's highly worthwhile a read. Buy it!
