A Prince Among Killers (Oathbreaker #2)
In this book, the focus is taken off Aron and Nic becomes the main character. Also the change in the titles is also an indicaton. There is also a more romance aspect in this book then adventure and the characters are less emotional at least the feelings you would get when you read about their emtotions. A Prince Among Killers starts right where Assassin's ended. Throughout the story, the focus is one Nic and Dari's budding relationship an ...more
And here's a tip... if you get dumped by the girl you chased after for YEARS (who also 'wanted to see' your TEACHER at the same time, and who falls in love with the guy she's known for f****g months cause they are 'soulmates') DON'T fall for her loony sister!!! And DON'T kill her husband for NO good reason and then run off with her cousin!!! ...more
Much like the first book, this one wasn't quite what I expected it to be. Unlike the first book, though, this one was more of a disappointment to me. I'll try to put into words why, but I can't promise clarity of thought and articulation.
Mostly, I did not like the "romance". I'm a romantic and I like romance in stories, but I would've preferred this book to have zero romance instead of what was in it. It just didn't work for me. Part of it was, I couldn't ever see the all-encomp ...more
This is the continuation of the tale of Aron Weylyn nee Brawling and the entire kingdom of Eyrie, populated by Fae (not that you can tell for they might as well have simply been magical humans). Times are a'changing and it appears that only the Stone guild where Aron lives will hold to it ...more
After being harvested by the Stone and taken to the guild's stronghold (Triune), Aron Brailing has been training as an assassin's apprentice.
The second half of the OATHBREAKER story starts out where the first left off; Aron has to face the horrors of the ruined keep and hope to make it back alive. In the midst of his training, war is breaking out among the dynasty lords and threatening to come right to the Stone Guild stronghold.
The threat becomes r ...more
In the first book, we met many different characters. Some of them we liked, some of them we didn't like so much. In this sequel, we find out so much more about each character. Their backgrounds and histories are revealed slowly but surely, tho ...more
This entry did at least do away with a lot of the predictability of the first, and it definitely made better use of some of its more unique concepts. A few moments drew genuine emotion. If this two-vol ...more
Ok so I have to say I didn't even finish the book. There are just too many good book out there to be wasting my time reading this one.
Aron was ok and I liked him but he got annoying A lot. And Dari....just oh I hated her.
The rest of the characters I didn't' much like ether and I wanted to like Nic but I didn't really.
The love life was HORRIBLE I mean gah wast of time just reading about it. Dari was horrible to Aron I wanted to slap her hard when she married ...more
This is certainly a worthy sequel. The story continues exactly where it left on in book one. This is a grand fantasy adventure that incorporates all the themes we hope for in fantasy, talent, bravery, love, faithfulness, hope and perhaps above all- sacrifice. To me, the Oathbreaker books also resonate with echoes of the author..abilities of leaving one's body to perform marvelous feats; transformations into powerful flying cre ...more
The second half of the Oathbreaker series, A Prince Among Killers, starts where the first book ended. This is one of those books that are nearly impossible to put down. You finish one chapter and just can’t find it in yourself to set it aside. I just had to start the next chapter to see what was was going to happen next.
The pair of books are both creative and unique. I just can’t recommend them highly enough. It’s a great story for both young and old. My only disappointment is that there aren’t...more
Totally saw that Kate + Aron thing. Personally, I didn't like it because I saw it coming.
