“A Dying Second Sun” by Peter Dowse is a must for lovers of the sci-fi/fantasy genre. It is filled with magical descriptions of people and places (you get a handy map to refer to) and a cast of (mostly) likeable and believable characters. I was particularly fond of the giant flying worms (worth the read, just for them). There are loads of magical events, political machinations, family dramas and tribal conflict, all set in the midst of a developing environmental disaster. The plot flows smoothly, drawing the reader into the realm of the story. It is an entertaining and fun read, and hard to put down.
