Death is only the beginning of the adventure. This is the complete premise of this book and from the first page until the last, I was entranced. I’m a huge science fiction fan and you throw in historical elements, I’m in reader heaven.

This sequel picks up where The IX (book one) left off. The threat of the Hoarde is gone (or so everyone on Arden believes) and you can feel the communal exhaling of breath. Things can go back to normal but like with anything, life is rarely peaceful. There’s alway

Exordium of Tears is the second in Andrew P. Weston’s sci-fi series, “The IX”, centred around a group of people displaced through time from various epochs, to defend a world against an unrelenting and insidious foe. I rather liked the first in the series, an action filled romp with some genuinely touching moments.

Exordium picks up shortly after the first book left off. Our heroes are busy turning their swords into plowshares, spreading out from their
