There were two major problems with this book for me. The first was I shouldn't have waited so long to read this second part because I seemed to have forgotten some key parts. I found myself lost at times, forgetting who was who or what the back story was concerning a certain characters. The second was three of the characters, Conrad included, were so similar looking that most of the time I didn't know who was in the frame with him right away. That always kind of bugs me and bums me out when read ...more
Continuing the previous volume, where domesticity and adventure are placed in contrast and conflict within one adventure who's returned home to stop a demon from being summoned. More scattered than the first volume, the story pulls in various disparate elements to tie up the various slow-burning plots, some with very effective twists and some seeming more out of left field. The action climax lacks a little flow and suspense, and the attempt at providing a last character moment for the antagonist ...more
Volume two picks up a little further down the road. Conrad has turned his back on swords and embraced his family but he is really doing the right thing? A friend of his from the guild shows up to force him to question his decisions but some mysterious magic confuses them both. Interesting twists and a suitably epic ending.
While the storyline here didn't end quite as strongly as I would have liked, I'm hoked and looking forward to the next volume. I love Lars Brown's combination of simplicity and detail in his art work, and as a writer his strengths are in creating vivid characters and wonderfully strange plot scenarios.

If anything, the writing and art is even more patchy than the first book. It feels like a rush job. Still, by wrapping up the story, there were some satisfying narrative moments.
The conclusion of the Epic of Conrad had some genuinely interesting twists. It was fun and light-hearted but had its share of action too. I'd recommend it.
