Angel-Seeker — All About Romance

This is the 5th book in the Samria series, but the story actually takes places just after the 1st book Archangel. Again we spent time seeekr the Edori, who are by far my favorite group of people within this series.

They remain the bad guys in this sequel also but in an offensive not intriguiging way. The wandering Edori are friendly, warm, family-oriented, and generous, but they are also disorganized and unambitious.
