It read alright it had the same Gothic atmosphere and intense action and underlying spiritual truths as Taylor's Shadowmancer but this book didn't really work for me as a continuation. It is a sequel certainly, but it doesn't really have an ending that satisfies both stories. In fact the ending is really unsatisfying as a whole. (view spoiler) ...more
I was a bit disappointed by this story, I remember that I thought Shadowmancer and Wormwood were amazing and this novel did not deliver on the same level. Of course I am older now so I may have just grown away from this style.

There was some really interesting parts to the story but there was an awful lot of wordy dialogue to get through between these highlights. I genuinely think the book would have been better had it been half the length and been a fast paced adventure.

Dark fantasy for Christians. Plot-driven. Didn't really get connected to the characters, at the end I was like, shouldn't I be feeling something for them. The action kept you on your toes, and turning the pages, asking questions, wondering, marveling. I am glad I read Wormwood before this, it gave me an understanding what happened in London before the characters arrived.

This sequel to "Shadowmancer" was good, but not nearly as good as the first book. This is a classic fight between good and evil (God versus the devil) type of book. There is some interesting symbolism and some very thought provoking scenes and dialog. The ending was a bit of a let down for me, however. If I could give 1/2 stars, this one would receive 3 1/2.

This is the sequel to Shadowmancer. However, it isn't nearly as good. It seemed not to flow as well, and the villain wasn't nearly as menacing in this one. Still a lovely world he's created. However, the atmosphere in the first one was so much more.

I actually enjoyed this book more than the first one. To me it was more intriguing and mysterious. I had to work a lot harder to put the pieces together. It kept me turning the pages, unlike the first book.
I so wanted to enjoy this book and couldnt get myself into the story at all.

I find that Taylor is beeing too clever since the book is ment to be for older children.

This was a good sequal to Shadowmancer although i preferred the first book the characters are good and the plot keeps twisting and turning keeping you on your toes

An interesting story but I found it really hard to look past the glaringly obvious typos. Looks like Mr Taylor needs to get himself a new editor!

I didn't like it very much, seemed dragged out, and not as well written as his others.
