i picked up this book because its world seemed intriguing, but i liked it because i cared about its characters. the world-building here, despite raves about it in the reviews, did not impress me and sometimes detracted from the story. the plot was compelling, tho, but has that all-too-familiar fuzzy ending of the now-obligatory serial novel.

i wish authors could concentrate on writing satisfying stories instead of selling books. i guess that's why i'll never be an author. i simply don't accept th...more
#2 in an excellent series.

I was very taken with the world-building in the first of these, and this one confirms my fascination. The gods are very real and meddlesome, and have their own agendas. Meanwhile, the mere humans have to navigate this... While still sometimes having unexpected influence.

How are gods created? This book gives an indication.

Patton does a wonderful job of making the gods real- and not at all human.

This is an excellent series, and I look forward to #3.
The city of Anavatan is home to six gods, protected by the God Wall from the wild spirits of the plains and mountains, which can kill a man if he is undefended. This second instalment sees the main characters – Brax, Graize and Spar – closer to their ultimate destiny, while also fleshing out the character of the Godling, born in the previous book. I find myself captivated by Patton’s worldbuilding and I’m going to go back to her Branion books for a re-read while I wait for the third instalment.
Stunning middle of the Warriors of Estavia trilogy. No second-book slump here!
