Up Jim RiverUp Jim River by Michael Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The novel begins and ends with the Hound and a question. Still, as such novels go, whether they're adventures or Space-Operas or many-vista'd hues of gorgeous untamed planets, they're full of stories and stories within stories.

This one has all of the above, and for those who really enjoyed Bridget Ban and Donovan from the previous novel, you're in for a treat.

Not that you'll be seeing all that much of the missing Bridget, but you will see a lot of her daughter who's searching for her. Even the Hound has given up.

My reaction to the novel? It was decent. I liked it more than the first, strangely enough, and there was plenty of interesting language stuff in this one, too. After all, the Holy Search for the Grail is ACTUALLY Coriander. Both are lost in deep time and have joined each other as mythical legends of the greatest of all quest items.

Coriander. Alas. Coriander. :)

Fun stuff. The action is good, too, and so was Donovan. Gotta love split personalities. :)

I hope to enjoy the next with as much fun in it. :)
