It was the second in a series of five books

I read and enjoyed the first three but quit midway through the fourth. It's slower and deeper than the first ones, basically an Empire Strikes Back compared to A New Hope and Return of the Jedi. I didn't have the patience for it but it's a very good series. The setting is based very strongly on Wales.
