So I enjoyed the first book, but overall thought it was going a bit too fast. I expected the same from the second one, but oh boy, did Fallon get back to her usual awesome writing. We have about a dozen storylines who all happen at the same time, are all connected and work really well together. Half the time I couldn't decide if I was happy that a chapter was over and I could move on to another character or if I wanted to stay with the previous one.

Fallon managed to write compelling characters t

Retribution by Jennifer Fallon is the second book in the War of the Gods trilogy, preceded by The Lyre Thief which I have also read and reviewed. As you might guess from the series title, this is a big fat fantasy book. And, being the second in the series, is not a good place to start reading. I definitely recommend starting with The Lyre Thief, or even the earlier two series: The Hythrun Chronicles and the Demon Child Trilogy.

I have been a fan of Fallon's writing for many years now (much longer

Ik blijf Jennifer Fallon een geweldige schrijfster vinden. Ook dit deel zat weer vol met plotwendingen en humor. En nu is het wachten tot het derde deel in deze sub-trilogie binnen de Hythrun Chronicles verschijnt. Dat zal nog wel even duren maar ik hoop dat ze hard aan het schrijven is aan dat deel.

Continuing to be totally consumed by this series. Although I think the writing is technically weaker than the previous two trilogies, the characters are still fascinating and the plot is an emotional rollercoaster that has me eagerly anticipating the next book.

I did feel there was some repetitive exposition. Not just of things that had happened in prior books, but it felt like some things within this book were being repeated over and over just to fill up space... but I moved on from that quickly

I love Jennifer Fallon's books and I realy wanted to know how the story of the Lyre-Thief continues. I
orderd the book in the internet and they shipped it to Europe for me. The two month waiting were totally worth it.
I couldn't stop reading und it was over all too soon. That is the only pity. I easily could have read a book with trice its lenght. Fallon's way too write never gets boring. ;)
There was a chliffhanger in the end, but in my opinion it was not es bad as the last time. It felt more like

The Lyre Thief was one of my favourite books of 2016, so I was delighted to get the opportunity to review the sequel. It didn't disappoint.

Being an epic fantasy, the book has a large cast of characters. I didn't stop to reread the first book, instead choosing to dive in. It was a bit of an effort to remember who everyone was, but I soon got my feet under me. The book also has a cast of characters in the back to help, should you need it.

One thing I loved most about this series is that there are w

All to often the second book in a trilogy is the one in which not much happens and one basically fills in time waiting for the final installment. Happily, this was not the case with 'Retribution'.

I thoroughly enjoyed this installment and it has the added benefit of working quite well as a 'stand alone' novel. The characters were beautifully detailed and are of the kind that you either love them, or love to hate them.

The story moved at a solid pace (not too fast and not too slow) and quite a few

A good continuation of the story. The Lyre Thief left us with a little bit of a cliffhanger, so I'm glad Retribution quickly brought us back into the story without much gap.

The ending was wrapped up a little too cleanly while also setting the stage for the book 3's villains.

A solid book 2 in this series.
