Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: We feel Aqib's pain at losing his love. His material success, and his joy in his children and grandchildren only partly makes up for it.

Con: "And then I woke up and it was all a dream." Half of the story was essentially just a dream. It's extremely difficult to believe that the vision of the Sybil was worth a hand.

It makes no sense that the Dalucans speak Latin.
