This was a great sequel to the first book in the trilogy (Woven Path), and picks up where it left off. While this book also contains some scary and gruesome scenes, it has a slightly different feel. "Woven Path" is more of a horror/adventure story, or it felt that way to me; this one is also very scary at times, but it also contains many elements of religion and mythology. Christian artifacts and legends mix with ancient myths and even the King Arthur tales; the result was very intriguing and se ...more
Way scarier and more gruesome than book 1.

Too late, too late... It's always too late and Neil can still elicit a face-palm or two in this book despite everything that has happened.

A fitting sequel to The Woven Path. It is similarly much darker than the cover and synopsis indicate, but very exciting.

This was a good follow up to the first book. It builds well on the established characters and adds some new ones. It is different enough from the first one that you are transported once again in an unexpected way. You would not need to read the first one for this to make sense.

Here there is a race between good and evil to find a relic which will tip the balance of power, but some people who would be good are manipulated to evil ends.

Like most of Jarvis's books, although aimed at children this was incredibly creepy. Again he manages to come up with scenarios and characters that are both frightening and everyday, something that isn't easy to repeatedly achieve.
Great continuation of this series - still interesting - looking forward to seeing what happens in the final book in this series.

Didn't enjoy it as much as the first book in the trilogy -- had nightmares with huge ravens!!!
Not as good as The Woven Path, but a decent sequel nonetheless.
