This is book 4 in the series and just as great. It starts right where book 3 left off. I absolutely loved it! I feel that despite her being emotionally stunted from her first 13 years of life, just my opinion, Rhuna has grown so much since book 1, and in this book we get to see her seek approval on ideas, decisions, etc. less, she seems more confident, and even a bit more independent. Rhuna still has her almost child like excitement and wonder when she experiences and learns new things. Even though she's no longer banished from Atlan Rhuna has decided that being with her family is more important so she decides to go to Varappa, her husband's homeland, with her husband, daughters, son-in-law, and her father. Rhuna's power continues to grow and her control over her power gets stronger. Unfortunately some of the decisions she's made have led to actions that, though she felt they were right based on her knowledge, these actions have put a strain on her relationship with her father. On top of that her husband has grown distant and can't explain why. So without the influence and guidance of her father and husband, I feel, Rhuna has become more easily influenced by some people that she otherwise wouldn't listen to. Of course talk of the Dark Master comes up, and trouble from his followers but this "enlightened" society doesn't care. I'm very proud of Rhuna for not letting the current state of her relationships with her father and husband cause her to shut down. Yes, she is terribly hurt and confused, she's lost her support system, but she's able to keep going and keep fighting.
Despite great emotional difficulties with her husband and eldest daughter, Rhuna settles into a new culture and learns to build and fly an RTE (Rapid Transport Enclosure). When strange deaths begin to occur, she finds herself caught up in a conflict between a growing number of troublesome conjurers and an isolated group of Atlan masters.
I really enjoyed reading about Rhuna and her father's psychic talents and was completely charmed by her young daughter, Shandi. Rhuna's growing skill with out-of-body projection and her experiments with time travel were fascinating, although I was frankly surprised that everyone around her, including her father, chose to view her success in rescuing her mother as something unnatural. I would have liked to see Rhuna and Goram find a different solution to the problem they faced at the end of the book, but the series is full of intriguing ideas and I look forward to traveling with Rhuna on the next leg of her journey.
With all that being said. (In doubt, check my reviews on previous books to see what I say about those, This is without a doubt a book that gets the label # Best-Books-Ever (BBE).
