My favorite thing about the settings here especially underworld is that they’re so stuffed with history, specific, unique species, customs and culture that each of them creates a totally specific atmosphere. Rumo and Smyke adventure together, but eventually they decide to go their separate ways, since Smyke wants to find civilization, and Rumo wants to follow the mysterious Silver Thread. This is a really freaking great book, perfect to relieve your brain if you read too many books written by PhDs. There are so many of them, yet everyone stays with you in their own unique way. It’s such a shame I don’t speak German, or else I’d be laping up the rest of his books in a heartbeat. It was a really Fun read.
