02.08.19 Book 3 in Denning's Dark Sun Prism Pentad. It seems like this series is taking shape where book 1 introduced three main characters, the next three probably focus on one each, with the last somehow wrapping them all up. We'll see if that turns out to be true but the last one was all about the gladiator Rikus and this one centered on the sorceress Sadira. I initially thought I wasn't going to like this one since I found her to be the least intriguing character from the first book, but I wound up liking this way more than the last. It has some to do with how more of the over-arching story gets revealed here where the whole first book feels like it's just the inciting incident and the second book just shows hints of what's to come at the very end, but I also found the characters here more multi-faceted and interesting. I liked this enough that I plan to roll right into the next one, which is pretty good. It helps that I'm more and more into D&D these days, and Dark Sun continues to be my favorite setting and the world-building in these books is pretty great. Seeing new cities and locales, new glimpses of culture (this book gets into elves in a big way whereas the last one dealt with dwarves)... it gives me a deeper understanding of the setting as a whole, which I'm really enjoying.
