He preferred it that way. But by the time he began transferring the rough sketch he had made to the fresh parchment, couriers began trickling in.

Prior to the war, few enough couriers had time to spend at the Guildhall, but since the Hecari had overrun Sancorra, the business of the Guildhall was under the warlord’s control.

Deepwood is the sequel to Karavans, the start of a new, highly commercial fantasy adventure series. Filled with magic, mystical beings, and humans with magical powers, and replete with bloody war and illicit romance, the universe of Karavans is already garnering high praise. Even darker and richer than Roberson's previous work, Deepwood is sure to enthrall her already dedicated readership.

Deepwood by Jennifer Roberson is the second novel in the Karavans series. The first book is simply titled Karavans #1. The third book titled The Wild Road is scheduled for release sometime in 2009. I had not heard about Ms Roberson prior to picking up the 30th Anniversary of DAW Fantasy anthology which had a short story by her. After reading that story I knew I wanted to read more and tracked down Karavans based on the recommendation by a friend. If you are looking for that short story you can find it on Ms. Roberson's website for free ([...] What better way than to try out an author with a free short story! Here are my thoughts on this novel.

The plot of this novel picks up right where the first book ended. The forest of Alisanos has become active again and moved. This movement has done two things; 1) It's trapped several people on the inside of the insidious forest, and 2) the small staging area for karavans to take off from has been decimated and people are left to pick up the pieces and resume normal life. Those two plot elements are the main story arcs of the book. However, there are also several subplots intricately woven together with the main story to add a depth to the story, and characters, which is not often seen at this level in fantasy novels. Each person/ group that is trapped in Alisanos has their own experiences and story elements. There is a somewhat clichéd love interest subplot. And there are also several mysteries surrounding characters and plot points that keep the story moving along at almost a frenetic pace. The true beauty of this novel lies in the layers of the story. It is not your traditional fantasy novel that has a linear plot that perceptive readers will guess fifteen pages into the book. When I initially started reading this book I was worried that there were simply too many plot elements for a 440 page book to accurately touch on and develop. After finishing it, I can honestly say that while there are certainly several plot elements none of them seemed rushed or get lost in the story. The plot of this book is simply a masterpiece of story telling.

The characters in this novel are largely the same ones present in the first novel. Readers can expect to read about Rhuan, Ilona, Brohdi, Audrun, Davyn, Jorda, and several more. If the plot of this book is a masterpiece, then the characters are those who will be remembered by readers for a long, long time. This is one of those rare books that I have absolutely no complaints about the characters, at all. Each character's dialogue has a certain uniqueness about it that adds depth to that character. The characters are no where near perfect, they have flaws (often times more than one), doubts, and they make mistakes. In my review of the first novel there were a couple things that I would have liked a little more information on. Evidently Ms. Roberson anticipated my questions because everything I had a question about from the first book is deftly explained in this novel. The sheer depth of the characters and their development is fantastic. Almost every character goes through (or starts to go through) some type of significant character development. With how deep and extensive the plot is, I wasn't sure how much could be dedicated to the characters. Ms. Roberson has struck the perfect balance between the two and they compliment each other very well.

A single criticism about this novel:

1 - There is a section towards the end of the book that seems to happen out of no where. I would have liked just a little explanation about how characters got to where there showed up. I have to be vague because it's a rather large spoiler, but the suddenness of it didn't seem to mesh well with how the rest of the story is laid out.

Some things I liked about this novel:

1 - The overall plot of this book is just fantastic. There is a richness to this multi-layered plot that forces the reader to read the next page, no matter what time of night it is.

2 - The characters. As with the plot, I simply can not say enough good things about how the characters were written. There is just enough mystery surrounding a couple of them to make them unique but not overly so. As I said above, I have absolutely no criticisms about any of the characters.

3 - The vividness of Ms. Roberson's prose. It lends itself to losing yourself in the story/characters. The flow, pacing, and style work to a perfect harmony and the story takes off. The way Ms. Roberson writes is akin to visiting an old friend, you are comfortable and relaxed and able to sit back and enjoy everything.

This is my second novel I have read by Ms. Roberson and based on these two books, and the short story, she is quickly becoming one of my new favorite authors. This story, plot, characters, world, etc works so well together. This series thus far is very high on my recommendation list. I think there are elements in this series for every fan of the genre. I would even go so far as to say that this is an excellent series for those looking to dip their feet into the genre. You certainly do mot have to be well read in the genre to understand this series. This is one of those diamond in the rough stories. With the plethora of fantasy novels hitting the shelves now-a-days it is harder for good authors to make any ripples. Ms. Roberson has made more then a ripple with this series. She is definitely on my radar now. I can not wait to read what's next. I am also beginning to look at her backlist books as well. I would encourage everyone who has not read these books to do so. I have enjoyed them very much.

She is a good writer and this series especially is excellent. Enough magic, mystery and romance mixed into an interesting world of her making that will keep you reading to see what happens next. She takes you there and you feel as though you actually know the alien races she creates. That is a real talent compared to some of today's authors I have read lately. I recommend this and the others in the series.
It's so easy
Continues the story begun in book one, but could also possibly be a stand-alone book. Characters are well-defined, story moves with good pace and the book grips the reader. A real page-turner to find out what will happen next. Plot twists and not the ususal "happily ever after" type story that one might expect in a fantasy. Really liked this book. Jennifer Roberson is an excellent writer and she does heself proud with this book.

While the Series was a bit slow in getting my interest. Once it did it was well worth the wait. the story was very involved and not the cookie cutter type if you like different then you'll love this series.

This is book 2 of the series. It shipped fast, arrived in excellent condition. If you like fantasy fiction, I recommend Jennifer Roberson's series, from the Tiger and Del series to the Karavan series, by way of the Cheysuli series. They are all great storylines by a very talented writer.

Can't wait to read the next in this series! The Dell books were fantastic as well. Thank you, Ms. Roberson!

I love Jennifer Roberson and the first Karavans was great! This one was so dark and depressing. Horrible things kept happening.
Interesting characters and concept, but it seems to be dragging itself into a series instead of arriving there naturally. Not sure I care to get the next one.
