The Magician's Ward

Magician's Ward - Patricia C. Wrede I don't love this quite as much as I love Mairelon the Magician, but it's a decent follow-up. The book is inherently inferior because Mairelon is present for a significantly lesser part of it, and Kim is also an extremely passive character. I wish she had rebelled a bit more against the strictures of Society, though there is one instance of rebellion that makes me laugh with glee every time. Also, reiterating what I wrote in my review of the first book, I do wish Wrede hadn't left these characters after just two books--I miss them!
