Review of 'The Red Threads of Fortune (The Tensorate Series)' on 'LibraryThing'

4 stars

This is a strong second book in the series, which doesn't feel quite as rich as Black Tides but does advance the story nicely and draws Mokoya more fully than she had a chance to be drawn in Black Tides.[return][return]Note that Tor markets this as a co-first book in the series, but I think it's much better to start with The Black Tides of Heaven. I read this with a book club who hadn't all read Black Tides yet, and many of us ended up putting this one aside to read that first, and enjoying this one more after.
