Lyonesse II: The Green Pearl


Much like the first book in the Lyonesse series, Suldrun's Garden, this book was tough to get into but eventually, I really liked it. The beginning is about 150 pages of trying to remember who the characters are and what they did in the first book. Then the author starting recounting what happened in the first book in small expository ways that jogged my memory and got me on track. After that I was fully engaged in the plot and the characters. I couldn't sleep last night for the pain from my shoulder surgery and restlessness of not doing much all day, so I was able to read about 200 pages during the night, and the remaining seventy or so in the morning. I read those pages voraciously.
