The second book of the dragon apocalypse series had a lot to live up to. The first which I also had the pleasure to review was great fun and packed full of dragons and magic, the two things that will instantly sell any novel to me.
From the get go though Hush appears to have matured into a much deeper and darker tale than it's predecessor, the main characters left over have all had massive changes in their abilities and perspectives which considering the lay out is a huge gamble, luckily one that has payed off easily, also the introduction of more, in particular a character called 'Sorrow' who introduced a new dynamic into the mix and took out a lot of the unnecessary stalled humour which at places slowed the pace before. With a lot of the major players in the first novel gone and massive changes to who is left Maxey has been able to push a lot more through, he obviously had a big plan for the entire series before starting and has kept the pace up brilliantly exploring not just other continents on his world but also an excellent look at the other realms and also the history of the dragons that were mentioned only in passing in the previous. Hush is not in any way just a 'second book' but a brilliant continuation and just like the first ends with the perfect opener for the next. Maxey has in this novel cemented himself firmly in place as a top notch fantasy writer.
