Another great installment in the Immortal Treachery series!!!

The story starts of with main character Vykers in a difficult situation after the events at the end of the previous book. I thought this a nice surprise then, and I loved it how Vykers dealt with it now. I probably liked the first part of the book the best with Vykers in search of a solution for his predicament. But even after that the story remains interesting to follow. And even though the story doesn't have as many 'breathtaking' sc

This series is an amazing series that deserves to be read. I read quite a bit and mostly fantasy and this is really better than some of the main stream books that are out there. I think his dialogue is quite literally some of the best i have read and can picture myself sitting around the fire and joking around with them. The world I'd interesting and constantly changing, he is definitely not an author that gets into his comfort zone and hangs out there. He is constantly moving locations, introdu ...more

Without giving away too much away about the cliff-hangers from the two previous books, this is a terrific continuation in a brutal, bleak fantasy world. There is easily enough material for two books in this story.
Picking up where book two left off, the depiction of unstoppable, testosterone-overdosed Tarmun Vykers being betrayed and trapped in the body of a young woman is terrific. It neither ignores the unpleasantness of being a seemingly defenceless, unattended

If you'd sit me down in one of those interrogation rooms -single table, two chairs on opposite sides, single light bulb above it; you know what I mean- and asked me to name a fantasy franchise similar to the Immortal Treachery series, then I would say it resembles Malazan Book of the Fallen (albeit in a condensed form). Praise indeed, as I regard MBotF as the best epic fantasy series out there. Sure, Batchelders books are nowhere near the size of Erikson's tomes, but the content shows quite some ...more

Catching up on this series again. Great to revisit these characters! They felt like old friends.

In this one there's a definite "revenge quest" (sometimes mixed with rescue quest) theme going on, with all kinds of characters furious at the damage they've taken from all kinds of others. But they come to a tangled common focus by the end of the volume, to resolve things once and...well, not exactly for all. Because another thing we're learning in this world is that even the dead have a way of comi

An enjoyable read

I found this to be an enjoyable fast read. The story has interesting characters, magic and action. Start the series from the beginning.

Another one down!

I'm just finishing up Book 3, it's four thirty in the morning and I couldn't stop reading. I have to get up at six am. On to Book 4!

Another great read in this captivating series. The characters are all still developing and engaging and what makes these books stand out. Vykers is in another tight spot and its interesting reading his character from an alternative perspective

As before, this book ends on a cliff hanger and you immediately want to pick up the next one. There are also revelations which leave you asking more questions . Holding on before picking up book four until book five is out, hopefully not to long.

I enjoyed this installment in the Tarmun Vyker's saga as much as the first 2 volumes. Allan Batchelder's imagination continued to amaze and impress me. His characters, both human and fantastical beings, are well-conceived as is the story. I had a lot of fun reading this book.
