A Skillful Warrior is the sequel to A Necklace of Souls by R.L. Stedman. I loved A Necklace of Souls, so much so that when I met R Stedman socially I found myself acting like a fanboy asking when the sequel would be out.
I was provided with an electronic copy of A Skillful Warrior which I enjoyed, however, I have to say that I subsequently received a paper copy and I still prefer having a physical copy.
The story continues with Dana, Will, Jed, and N’tombe travelling together. During this journey, Dana becomes more familiar with the guardians and the skills she is developing.
