    This is the second book in the Nuestrian series The action begins before that of Gerflacon and continues beyond it I didn't like this one nearly as much mostly because I never really warmed to the main character Joris of the Rock Joris is a ruthless bandit You are supposed to feel sorry for him because he became a bandit through tragic circumstances but he is really ruthless When he gets frustrated he steals and pillages and burns local peasants farms and villages He robs and kills merchants and travels silly nilly All the while suffering from unrequited love of the notorious Red Anne Raoul of Ger from the first book makes occasional appearances I think Joris gets exactly what he deserves
