Many of you have wondered "Why is Cool Ranch SO LONG compared to all the other worlds?" Think of it like this. Cool Ranch has one Stormgate, there are no unknown skyways in the story, and Cool Ranch fills up 6 books. Then take Monquista or Valencia. They both have unknown skyways with who knows how many Stormgates, they are both only one book, and we still have to set things straight, especially with the Armada. Even Mooshu has an unknown skyway or two. Just be prepared to say "Why is Valencia so long?"
