Oct 10, 2007 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This was a great sequel to the first book in the trilogy (Woven Path), and picks up where it left off. While this book also contains some scary and gruesome scenes, it has a slightly different feel. "Woven Path" is more of a horror/adventure story, or it felt that way to me; this one is also very scary at times, but it also contains many elements of religion and mythology. Christian artifacts and legends mix with ancient myths and even the King Arthur tales; the result was very intriguing and se ...more
For anyone who like mythology and want something different from the Roman and Greek mythology from the Percy Jackson series. I recommended the Wyrd museum, revolting mostly around Norse mythology. This book is fill with high pack action. You don't have to read the first book to get what going on. It does pick up at the minuets where the first book left off.
Also, to add, it gets gory from time to time.

My Blog
Way scarier and more gruesome than book 1.

Too late, too late... It's always too late and Neil can still elicit a face-palm or two in this book despite everything that has happened.

A fitting sequel to The Woven Path. It is similarly much darker than the cover and synopsis indicate, but very exciting.

I loved this book! I was a huge Robin Jarvis fan as a child, but I never read this book because I struggled to get through the Woven Path, so abandoned the series when it came out. Having given it a new go as an adult, and finding the first book good but not great, this was a welcome return to form. For some reason, I always love book 2 the most in each of his series', and I suspect this may be the case with the Wyrd Museum.

While the previous book had a WW2 theme, this story was set in the prese

A rather blood-thirsty take on some old Norse mythology, but blood-thirsty is why we read Jarvis! For about the first time in his books, I felt the plot moved a tad too fast to allow the characters to breathe, but it was a spectacular concept nonetheless.

Randomly, of the trilogy, this is the book I've read the most, as I must have read it at least twice before thinking to track down the first and third books to round of the story.

The story starts exactly where the last one finishes, with Neil arriving back in the present and having to face his father and the Webster sisters. But they are all embroiled on a new adventure - the Gallows God, once ally and friend of the Fates, but now a bitter enemy, has returned and is seeking to destroy them. Luri

This was a good follow up to the first book. It builds well on the established characters and adds some new ones. It is different enough from the first one that you are transported once again in an unexpected way. You would not need to read the first one for this to make sense.

Here there is a race between good and evil to find a relic which will tip the balance of power, but some people who would be good are manipulated to evil ends.

Although you have to acknowledge that the ideas in this story are original, (view spoiler) it all feels so contrived and the fact that everything's inevitably and inexorably heading for a horrible climax is exasperating.(view spoiler) The only thing I enjoyed was the raven Quoth. The rest is just irritating and totally unconvincing.

Like most of Jarvis's books, although aimed at children this was incredibly creepy. Again he manages to come up with scenarios and characters that are both frightening and everyday, something that isn't easy to repeatedly achieve.
Not as good as The Woven Path, but a decent sequel nonetheless. ...more

This was one of the first heavy duty fantasy books I have ever read -- I suppose that I owe my adoration for epic fantasy to Jarvis.
A really stunning trilogy, written by a master
