I read the first book in this series some time ago, and was able to pick up the story in this volume very easily. I really enjoyed the mystery aspects in Vorn the Oynx and the surprise twist. Just when you've sorted out one mystery, a whole new problem presents itself. As with the first book, I find that the writing really transports you to the author's fantasy, adventure world - and it's great to spend your day there side-by-side with the characters.
