So there *is* another one..! When someone mentioned there being a sequel
that hasn't come out yet, I thought that perhaps I had lost my mind,
because I sure borrowed *something* set on the same world from the
library! I have to admit I didn't get all the way through it, though -- I
can't remember the details, but I remember being turned off by the style,
and slogging through a good number of pages waiting for something to happen
before giving up. I do faintly recall that the part I got through involved
a great deal of social machinations by various characters playing
favorites, looking impressive, being manipulative, etc. which I've never
found terribly interesting, so it might have just been me.
