I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
This book is an answer to anyone who wondered what happened to the characters between the original chronicles series. It is another great bit of work on the part of Weis and Hickman. I couldn't put it down, having often read hundreds of pages in a single day.
