The characters again are the driving force in this epic fantasy novel. Each character, both the good and the evil, are crafted with such detail that it becomes easy to picture them in your mind as well as understand their hopes and desires. Gary Vanucci does an excellent job of expanding on the heroes backgrounds while at the same time catching up those that might have forgotten about certain aspects of each character or that have missed the first book in the series or the collection of short stories for each of them. New characters are also introduced, and Gary Vanucci does an excellent job of providing them with just as much personality as he did with the original characters.
The battles, of which their are plenty, create the appropriate amount of tension and excitement. Again instead of mashing all of the different character's fights into a few paragraphs, the author breaks up the fights into each characters perspective. This not only allows the fights to go into greater detail, but it also generates a great deal more tension for the reader as it puts you right in the eyes of that particular character. You can really feel each parry, dodge, and would inflicted in each fight.
Overall, Secrets of the Ebonite Mines is a great continuation of a series that is both fascinating and entertaining. I would recomend you pick up Gary Vanucci's first book in the series or his collection of short stories first, as all of the stories combined really help you feel connected to the wonderful characters the author has created.
