The second book curse, similar to the second album curse for a musician rears it's ugly head here. Unfortunately following on from 'Blood of Aenarion' was always going to be a horrible task to undertake, and 'Sword of Caledor' suffers here. As with the first the writing is exceptionally well done and the character interaction is also, again, perfect but where this one seems to fall a little flat is there is now just a lot of filler and no real action to follow. The promise of big events went by ...more

The Elven twins Tyrion and Teclis return in Sword of Caledor, William King's sequel to Blood of Aenarion.

Sword of Caledor is far better. A big part of this is in seeing how the characters have developed - Tyrion has become a skilled sea-raider and duellist, while Teclis continues his mastery of wizardry - while exploring the nature of Elven society. Warhammer's Elves are most definitely not "nice". They are capricious, cruel, and ruthless, and it's easy to see the Dark Elves - featured heavily

I have gushed over William King before. I'm a huge fan. This book continues my love affair with his work. This is the 2nd book in a trilogy about the High Elves Tyrion and Teclis. (This is a Warhammer fantasy universe book. I've written other reviews giving an idea what this universe is like. If you are unfamiliar with the Warhammer world, I would suggest checking out the following Wikipedia article: .) I have been a fan of Teclis since he first appeared ...more

The second entry in the Tyrion & Teclis series seems to be a setup for the third book, but it is still very good. 100 years have passed since the battle between the two brothers and their hated enemy N'Kari, the Keeper of Secrets and once of the most powerful Slaaneshi daemons. Now Tyrion and Teclis have discovered Sunfang, the legendary blade of Aenarion, forged by the ancient mage Caledor. But when they return, dark omens speak of unspeakable evil coming to their land. The Everqueen is mur ...more

When I had finished reading 'Blood of Aenarion' I knew that Bill King was BACK!!!

I hadn't read or seen any of his works for Games Workshop / The Black Library for a few years, I had thought he had retired from writing. But it was great to see him return to the fantasy genre of the Warhammer World as I really think it was him who got me hooked on the genre in the first place. The Gotrek and Felix short story 'The Dark Beneath The World' for example really caught my imagination as a kid, them grea

Many years have passed since the twin brothers defeated the daemon N’Kari at the Holy Shrine. Now they fight in the great jungles filled with dangerous lizard men for a sword of great power, the Sword of Caledor. But even if they find this weapon, it may not be enough to stop the upcoming threat.

In the far north, the dark elves ready themselves for the invasion of the twins people and lands. At the head of the invasion is the evil witch king, Malekith. The evil king has also summoned the twin’s

I really liked this book. The action bits where actually a nuisance at times because I was to enthralled with the toughts and motivations of Tyrion & Teclis and how their activities between book 1 and book 2 were explained.

A good sequel, but I felt it waffled a bit in places.

This was, as I'd hoped, better than its prequel. There was a lot more going on, a lot more information about characters leading the reader to become far more invested in their progress, and a much larger scale of story.

It's quite rare for me to finish a book in this amount of time, but I just couldn't put this down!

A great book, and I can't wait til December for the next installment!

Once again, through Sword of Caledor, Bill King demonstrates why he is the undisputed master of Warhammer Fantasy fiction! The book flows like drinking a glass of water but keeps you thirsty for more!

Highly recommended for any fantasy reader, especially if you fancy Elves!
