The second book in the "Twilight Giants" series, this one was pretty much on par with the first...maybe a little worse.

There were definitely some cool things going on; neat magic, some pretty cool fights, fog giants and frost giants. However, there were somethings I didn't really like.

Part 2 of Twilight Giants. Continuation of the story about these mostly ignored creatures of the Forgotten Realms.
Again pure indulgence and pulp style of a read. The style
From Denning the writing is simple, maybe classed as young adult, is simply just easy read.
Nothing too great here, fairly typical adventure fantasy storyline but great to hear more about the giants and creating some extension to their mythology.
Good fun read.
Now to find book 3...

Recommends it for: die-hard fantasy novel lovers who love giants
Recommended to Jason by: Daniel O'Bryant
Very average fantasy series. Although the storyline was compelling, the characters were shallow and the writing was simplistic. The novels cover an interesting gamut of giants and giant-kin, their cultures and differences, but overall, these books are nothing special.

For these reasons, and because I enjoy the fantasy genre, I give the books in this series 2 stars.
