A number of trilogies will tend to have the following loose format: the first delves into the world of new and exciting things, the finale gives you that wonderful climax and denouement for these characters you've grown to love, but the second novel just kind of gets you there. It bridges a gap and makes the third book a little better, but in it's own right it's just there doing exactly what a bridge does. It looks cool from a distance, but when you're on it, it's just another road.

This is my oh

Very much enjoyed the John Marco trilogy. A fantasy trilogy, similar in style to Tad Williams and George R.R. Martin. The characters are multi-faceted in ways that make them easy to relate to; the heroes have flaws and the villains have good streaks. The trilogy ultimately follows The Bronze Knight, Lukien, and where his decisions lead him. There's princesses and bravery, and sometimes the wrong people die; people try to do what's right and fail, good people become corrupted, and evil people dis ...more

So this was the last book of the year 2008 that I read. I read the last fifty pages or so before leaving for my New Years Eve Party. I was actually quite pleased with the ending. I can't wait to pick up the final book in the series. I really want to see how Marco is going to end all of the story lines that he's crafted throughout this book and the first book.

Continuing the story of Baron Glass and Lucien, this book delves further into the psyche of the characters, letting you see the darker side of almost every single one of them. Marco is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

It has been a long time since I have read this, but I absolutely have loved John Marco's books, his first series and this the second series.

The second part of this series. Marco is fantastic. I'm surprised more people haven't heard of this novel. It is wonderful.

This was a pretty good book. It taught me a lot, that no matter how strong you really are or if you have no fears you can still be beaten.

Great sequel to the Eyes of God, this one was a little bit darker and not as quick paced. It was still a very enjoyable read, and looking forward to the next in the series.

Excellent continuation of the The Bronze Knight books. The concept of the Seekers is a nice follow-up to the discovery of the Akari healing magic. Good people to bad things. Bad people do good things. No one is faultless (including Gilwyn Toms and his naive desire to bring back Baron Glass from the spell of Kahldris). Lukien is the character that keeps getting smacked in the mouth by Fate. All of the good people who have died in the first two books would make an extremely full graveyard. Lorn is ...more

This book was a much slower read than the first book in the trilogy. Unlike the Eyes of God, I felt bored during parts of this story, which is a problem when the book is almost 750 pages. The new characters that were introduced were not a problem, I actually liked them, but there were too many segments that either not much was happening or they were on the "journey" part of the story, which always bores me. Also, I knew immediately upon seeing the cover of the second book one of the big things t ...more

SF/Fantasy version of beach-reading material...something to pass the time with an easy read between more involved/complex genre books...

It's a middle book... it delves more into the characters and what drives them to do, well... what they do. Let's wrap this up and look forward to the action the third book of a trilogy!

John is a fantasy writer. The story is full of life. The characters come alive in his writing. Read this series of books and be taken by the words to a place far away...
