The Walls of Air by Barbara Hambly

(Note: I am many books behind in my reviewing at the moment. If I post more than two or three reviews today I'll start putting subsequent ones behind cuts so I don't overtake your friends page.)

Title: The Walls of Air
Author: Barbara Hambly
Series: Darwath Trilogy, Book 2
Genre: Alternate universe fantasy.
Setting: The kingdom of Darwath. Our two main characters are still from SoCal but Earth is only present in their dreams.
Reason for Reading: The first book was really good.
Finished In: Days. Maybe a week total.
Pages: 297
Copyright Date:
Cover: Looks like something out of Star Wars. Obi-Wan and Leia are standing in front of a holoscreen. Leia has a sword and staff in her hands.
First line: "The setting was the Shamrock Bar in San Bernadino on a rainy Saturday night."
Best part: I continue to find the ongoing political intrigue in this series of great interest.
Worst part: The plot twist near the end seemed very obvious to me.
Imaginary Theme Song: "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, but only because "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto" doesn't have a song AFAIK.
Grade: B-
Recommended for: I think fantasy fans should give this series a look, but it should definitely be read from the beginning.
