The Crystal Fascade has all of the good things that made The Quest for Nobility a good and enjoyable read for me. The authors build on the strong foundation and wealth of background from the first book. With the foundation already established, the authors focus more on the characters and story. The writing style and collaboration between the two authors has improved. Transitions from one scene were handled smoothly.
This is a solid piece of work and like The Quest for Nobility, well worth the money especially if you are looking for a series where psychic powers are used.
