MICAH! Nooooooooooo!

Can I just say wow? Please? WOW!

Thrace, Micah and Eli have holed themselves up for the winter. But they are being hunted, hunted for a murder. The winter called is calling for them.
After some hard times, Micah and Eli end up at some caves (I forget stuff easily which makes for some really crap reviews). Everything seems happy there - the people, the food and the atmosphere. Despite all of this, Eli is not happy and wants to leave. Micah has to choose between leaving the save
I have mixed feelings about this book. As a standalone fantasy book it is really rather good but as the second in the trilogy it is a bit confused.

Continuing on from the first book, this opens with our hero Micah and his friends Eli and Thrace holed up in a cave for the winter. However, they are soon in trouble when the sinister Winter Caller finds them. The Winter Caller is a properly nasty character, almost ringwraith like, and is the real standout of the book.

This book takes off shortly after the events of the first book, Wyrmeweald: Returner's Wealth. Whilst you could read it independently I imagine, I would not recommend doing so; this is very much a series and really needs to be read in order.

Even more dark and brooding than the first in the series, highly visceral and gory in places, even by Stewart & Riddell standards. Indeed in a couple of places in the book, it was so gory that I felt a bit nauseous - when torture instruments are involved
Good next book, but there were many things that made me so sad... Micah and Eli and Thrace are holed up for the winter in one of Eli's well stocked shelters, the only thing that is driving them mad is the interminably boring wait for the thaw. Little do they know just how much trouble they are about to find themselves in. There is a Keld who is a little upset about what they did to Redmyrtle and she has sent an assassin after them, a relentless killing/torture machine who is honing in on their s ...more

This book is a sequel to "Wyrmeweald Returner's Wealth." I enjoyed this book even though it was very different from the first book. The first book was about traveling outdoors and learning about different wyrmes, but do to the winter setting in this book, the characters are often searching for shelter. The author has created a fantastic world known as Wyrmeweald. There is a great amount of detail about the setting and his made up creatures; it is easy to picture this world. The characters are my ...more

I've got to say that I'm rather disappointed in this book. While it wasn't horrible or anything along those lines, it dragged. It could be due to middle book syndrome, but comparing it to the first of the series, it was somehow boring. I suppose it could be because of the season. It is winter, afterall, and nothing much happens in winter on the weald. But still. There's a horrible assassin chasing after you and for some reason, I still wa

Bloodhoney was for me a bitterly disappointing book.

It began well, with Eli, Thrace and Micah trapped in a cave and the winter caller looking for them. But the moment they escaped it all went downhill.

Thrace and Micah become separated (Thank God) and Eli and Micah end up in a refuge called Deephome hidden in the mountains. Deephome is an unsettling, if extremily boring place. They spend much of the book there and nothing interesting happens until the very end, and when it does, it's very underwh
More young adult dragon (wyrme) lore. Not my favorite cup of tea. However, the protagonists fall into a haven from Full Winter, Deephome, and Micah falls in love with Cara, the daughter of the Stone Prophet. When enemies break into the safe haven, Eli and Micah understand how they have withstood the onslaught of kith over the years. Needless to say, Eli and Micah destroy the evil underlaying the cave, and the end of the book finds them taking Cara out to the weald for whatever adventures they ma ...more

Love the dragons and the world building! The plot suffers from "middle of the trilogy"- itis. Micah starts the book with one girlfriend and ends with another. Micah and Eli start out being hunted by a minion of the keld mistress and end by being threatened with being hunted by another minion of the keld mistress. Still, can't wait for the next book. Love this dark world and its desperate inhabitants.
I'm sad to say that I'm struggling to really enjoy this series. I can see the potential, but sadly it just isn't for me. This is because I'm still so confused at the history of everything. I think that as Micah was learning about the Weald in the beginning, I, as a reader, should have learnt too, but I did not. I couldn't picture 'wyrems' because I didn't know what 'wyrmes' were; had they compared them to that of a dragon things would have been clearer.
I also think that too much is going on from
I've really enjoyed this series so far. Even thought I had to leave a nearly two moths before finishing it (I had borrowed it form my local library back home during the Easter break and then had to go back to uni) I picked up right where I left off without any problems or having forgotten any of the plot. I can't wait for to read the next book in the series.
I have to say the Stewart and Riddell combination is fantastic and I'm huge fan of their other works as well.

It was OK but I personally think that the book before it in the series is a better book.
