Book two continues Maerad's story but takes her down a darker road. Her powers are growing but her knowledge and experience are lacking. Her mentor and companion, Cadvan, can only guide her so far. Her journey is sad and sometimes terrifying and Maerad must travel almost to the brink of despair.

This Book was one of the best books i have ever read i think other people can have their own opinions but to any one who likes harry potter Eragon and other fantasy books like those with magic and adventure i would recommend you to read this and the naming and the crow.

Although her writing style still isn't quite what I would expect (after reading some of the praising reviews on bn.com), 'The Riddle' is without a doubt much more captivating than 'The Naming'--partially because (1) they aren't moving from campsite to campsite and eating seeds, bread, and cheese for hundreds and hundreds of pages, and (2) the ongoing development of each character draws in the reader to an almost personal level. It's not one of those books that draws you away from social life from the moment you open it until the second you're forced to turn the last page, but it's definitely kept me company while I've had nothing better to do.

In all honesty, I find this book to be better than the first book of the series. This is the first time that I have ever been able to say that about a book-- and there are good reasons behind my statement. "The Riddle" contains just about anything you want. Adventure, a number of fights, a good story, and some hilarious moments if you pay enough attention. But by far, the best part of this book was the author's descriptions of the characters' surroundings. Your breath will be taken away by the beauty of Thorold, the sinister ravines, and the vast mountains. This author is by far the most talented I have ever read when it comes to describing the landscape and towns... The only cons of this book were Maerad's almost unhealthy fixation on her brother, her overwhelming self-pity, the fact that the book started out kind of slow, and the cliche element of 'love' that sneaks in. However, you will enjoy this book nonetheless. I highly recommend it.

He walked into the bar, saw a shipwreck on the tv, went home, turned on the lighthouse light, and killed himself. He forgot to turn on the light. He worked in a lighthouse.

Wow. This book was like Poof! Read it, began it, enjoyed it, ended it. Awesome ride! The really really unexpected thing was that Maerad likes the Winterking and Cadvan nearly dies. Whoo! Was scary, that part... Anyway the plot was really well and intricately weaved together, the conflict was way strong and the resolution made sense. The story was just plain terrific.

If you enjoyed "The Naming" then you will certainly enjoy this sequel. A little much exposition for my taste, but I suppose that is something you notice when re-reading them back to back. This book is a story of a young woman finding who she is, overcoming her fears, and discovering self-acceptance. I thought it was well-written and enjoyable. We are finally seeing Maerad growing into herself. The bit with Cadvan killed me, but I will restrain from any more spoilers.

This book was much better than The Naming. The plot which was previously so predictable simply blew me away with unexpected twists and events! The author really collected herself for this installment and made a lackluster beginning into a well developed story. You really get to see a darker side of Maerad as she continues her quest. Aside from a few "Oh, yeah right!" moments, I was pleased with the expansion of the characters and the world they live in.
