The good editing and character dialogue continues with this volume of the book.

Isuna Hasekura's skill as an author seems to age like fine wine, which is to say that each volume he releases his storytelling improves greatly. I believe after reading this volume it has shown me how skilled he is as an author to pull off previous volume.

By previous statement, what I mean is that volume three gave a sense of urgency and fast-pace, but this time around the story goes at a much slower pace. I believe this is more due to the fact that Holo and Lawrence are getting accustomed to their new understanding of each other's feelings.

The story begins with Lawrence and Holo out on the road travelling to their next destination. Diana from volume 3 has mentioned there was abbot who collected pagan legends from all over the world, and this would be the person they seek out here in volume 4 to find out more about the town of Yoitsu (Holo's home). They arrive in the small town of Tereo to find out more information as to the whereabouts of the abbey, but they are soon confronted with yet another issue that only serves to hold back any progress of Holo finding out what happened to Yoitsu. Will Lawrence and Holo once again outwit their opponent(s), or will fate finally catch up with them?

This volume also confronts an issue that has worried Lawrence since the ending of volume one. One that Lawrence fears the most about facing on his travels with Holo. You'll have to pick up this volume to find out what happens!

In this adventure the stakes are less personal for lawrence and holo but they hit close to home all the same.

More is revealed of the disaster that befell Yoitsu, but uncovering this information may cause disaster to befall the town which keeps these secrets. Just as Lawrence and Holo are growing closer together the realiztion that someday thier journey will end forces them to think about parting. Lawrence and Holo must use thier cunning, and business sense to solve other peoples problems this time around... but can doing so help them conquer thier own?

Well I started reading this last night and stayed up late, late, late finishing it.
Lawrence and Holo trade jabs, plots, and banter with Lawrence evidently learning a thing or two and actually managing to get the upperhand on Holo once or twice. I'm so happy to have new Spice and Wolf material!

Isuna Hasekura is a brilliant author, no doubt about it. Spice and Wolf is a great series unlike anything I've ever read.

In this novel, Holo and Lawrence stop in the village of Tereo to inquire about Holo's hometown of Yoitsu. When a rivaling village encounters a crisis, Holo and Lawrence are thrust headfirst into the affair.

Hasekura's use of the language is very accurate, and I can imagine every scene, every word that is written. I can see the story playing out in my head. This time around though, the plot seemed rather lacking, and I felt a bit of anti-climax when I got to the conclusion. The events in this novel just seemed rather droll in comparison to the first three, as they placed the main characters in jeopardy. This time around, the stakes were lowered, but it was still a fine read. I look forward to reading future novels, and I pray that Hasekura will make the series as high-staked as before!

Just wanted to let others know that this is not the same story as what was shown in season 2 of the anime. Having watched both seasons of the anime first, I've been anxiously awaiting "new" content. Not sure what volume part two of season 2 is from, but it is NOT volume 4. Really enjoyed this book, just wish they would release them a little faster.

Fans of the show will be happy to know more about Holo and Lawrence. For those who watched the show this is a pleasant chapter that was unfortunately skipped by the show.

I assume that you know what you are getting if you are looking at the 4th novel.
At this point in the series, is my least favorite of the novels, but still great, just not as good as the others. Like an 8/10 instead of my usual 10/10 for the others lets say, so still worth it.
The book came in great condition.
