Embers of an Age picks up right where the previous book left off and I was somehow inclined to skim and scan through Dawn of Warbefore picking this up. Good thing I did because somehow this helped me appreciate Embers of an Age even more.

Arrin is left fleeing the ruins of Lathah not knowing the final fate of Uthul or the way to salvage the weary group of survivors with him. One of the strong points of this book is that success does not depend on one individual as is the case in most epic fantasi

The second book in the series continues at a frightening pace and it just keep sgetting better all the way through. I often find middle book can be more filler than killer this book is all killer no filler, new characters are introduced and they become very important characters as well. I really like the way the story develops it all quite frankly seems doomed at points in this book. You really do start to struggle to see how anyone gets out alive and you know what thats not an easy trick for an ...more

Embers of an Age picks up quite literally right where Dawn of War left off. Our heroes flee the fall of Lathah, and then turn their sights on overcoming the Grol army rampaging across the continent.

However, there path is blocked by the sudden war that has come to their land. There are very few times that this book was not taking place in the middle of a very large battle. The heroes are almost literally fighting every step of the way from one destination to the next. Reading the challenges mount

Marquitz shows that after Dawn of War, he is really finding his feet in the epic fantasy genre. The viewpoint control here is just right, the set pieces are epic, and there is a better sense of scale and overall purpose in this book when compared to Dawn of War.

This is a superb sequel to Dawn of War, learning a bunch of lessons from its predecessor, and setting the scene for what I hope is an action packed final book in the trilogy.

This second book in the blood war trilogy is every bit as good as the first.
It has nonstop action, with Arrin facing ever increasing seemingly insurmountable odds.
The book is like a series of battles and conflicts and never slows.
The biggest problem is its part of a trilogy and the third hasn’t been written yet. Common, Tim, hurry up with the next book.

Try 'George and Dewi' if you like this.

The Blood War Trilogy is a grimdark epic fantasy series by Tim Marquitz (Demon Squad, Dirge), which follows the events of a multi-faction war which is sparked by the sudden acquistion of numerous powerful magical weapons by hostile belligerent nations. It follows numerous heroes, cynical and idealistic, as they struggle to deal with the massive events going on around them.

I loved the original Dawn of War and was very impressed with its depiction of nobles, commoners, healers, soldiers, killers
