From official release/information:
I found the first book of Wooding's trilogy of The Braided Path (The Weavers of Saramyr) to be an immensely satisfying, beautifully imagined and often breath-takingly gruesome dark fantasy and as such it offered readers a real quality alternative to the glut of Tolkeinesque fiction that constantly seems to swamp the market. The release of the second installment, The Skein of Lament sees the story broaden in a number of directions many of which will surprise, delight and horrify.
