This is the third in the Nerak series and it is full of the same humor as the two earlier books. I love the introduction to chocolate. I enjoyed the zany humor, but I did feel as though there was a great deal of carry over from the earlier books. In this story, a healer is sent from Nerak looking for a cure for an ill elder. She heads off to the vacation cottage of Sam as it is out in the woods and she needs access to plants that are not available in the city. There are some new twists and the book was a fun read, but I did not enjoy it as much as the earlier books.
This is the first and only book of the Planet Nerak series that I've read so far, but I enjoyed it and plan on reading the others as well. Since I would only be repeating what was said in the other reviews, I'll offer the series list/order instead. I'm mainly doing this because they reissued the second book in the series with a new name - arrghh!
