This is a direct continuation of events begun in the second book of this series, Exiles at the Well of Souls. These two books, together, are called the War of the Well World.

It is difficult to describe the events of this book without substantially spoiling much of Exiles.

Essentially, the second phase of the war gets under way, and I can't say any more than that.

As the author puts it in his note in both books, "In an ideal world, Exiles should be read first."

If you have read Exiles, and found it a good book, this one is a must (it's really the second half).

Vol. 1: Midnight at the Well of Souls
Vol. 2: Exiles at the Well of Souls (Part 1: War of the Well World)
Vol. 3: Quest for the Well of Souls (Part 2: War of the Well World)
Vol. 4: The Return of Nathan Brazil
Vol. 5: Twilight at the Well of Souls

I loved the series years ago, and have re-read them a few times, each book was captivating. Being drawn into such a diverse world with what what could be less far fetched ideas in today's age, is such fun. If you like sci-fi that is a little more sci than fi, this is the series for you. It takes the basic ideas we know in science and stretches them just to the breaking point, while mixing some philosophy in. The main characters are quick to at least identify with, making the story that much more captivating.

To fully enjoy this book requires the reading of the prior books in sequence. The writer has an extraordinary ability to weave a complex tale that keeps the reader's interest from the first to last page.

This author has done it again, once you start reading you can not put it down. this is the 3rd. book in a series and if you have not read the others, I would recomend them, starting with midnight at the well of souls and then ghost of the well of souls.

Well War 2.

Or, if you haven't read the second book in the Well World series, Exiles at the Well of Souls this book may not make anywhere near as much sense, as it follows on directly from that one to continue the conflict and problems that Mavra Chang and company find themsleves in because of the experiment in the earlier novel.

This one is still just as entertaining as the first part though.
