With this volume, we can see something of a formula arising, with Runa beginning her journey in search of the Jewel of Everlasting time. Unfortunately, this seems to wash the series clean of most of the characters introduced in the first volume, boiling the key cast of characters to simply Runa and her two traveling companions. Fortunately, what is here does seem to work, setting up a fairly interesting conflict between Runa and enemy who isn’t simply an evil presence, as in the first volume. Hopefully the author can continue to roll with this formula and create a wide variety of interesting settings and characters to occupy them, because there certainly is a good bit of potential presented in this volume."
