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!
The boy they meet, Col, is quite an interesting character and we get to see a side to Kraft and Holo that is actually quite amusing. Speaking of which; it really seems throughout the series so far that the characters are slowly changing. The author does a good job in creating character development and makes me wonder how much more knowledge the characters will get by the end of the series.
While no action really happens in this novel, I still found it to be a really fast pace reading. It could be the fact I have wanted post season 2 story for a while now, but I was really sucked into the story and never got bored. Character interaction really shines in this issue and so many really cool people are added. Most of them are just secondary characters, but most are really unique and interesting.
The setting descriptions laid out by the author are really well written and easily imaginable. I never found myself confused or had a hard time in trying to visualize what is happening around them. I think this is the first time shipping is introduced into the series. Lots of details are given into the boating and goods process and the mercantile benefits to using it (with the Kraft Lawrence in-depth descriptions about it).
Just like the other novels random illustrations are added at key moments of the story. They still look great and it never really takes you out of the story by having too many of them. The novel also has two of the introduction full color illustrations, but for some reason they are upside down. The table of contents are also upside down, might be this way to avoid spoilers to people who don't like seeing them or just a printing error.
I recommend this book to anyone who has read the previous volumes, as it does progress the story quite well. This is also the book you want to start reading if you're just interested in the story past what happens in the anime (I also recommend the fourth novel as well if you're only interested in story the anime didn't cover). A ton of story gets covered this volume and it ends on a really cool note that I didn't expect.

* Great addition to the series that's finally past the anime
* Kraft shows that he has learned from his experiences so far
* Tons of character interaction
* Insight into the boating and shipping process
* Illustrations still look great
* The color art and table of contents are upside down for some reason
Note also that this is equivalent to the second half of Spice and Wolf II (anime series).
