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.

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.
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
Hello. Thanks for visiting my author page here on Goodreads. In case you don't know me, I'm John Marco and I'm a fantasy writer. I've written seven books so far, including the Tyrants and Kings trilogy and the books of the Bronze Knight Lukien. My next book, The Forever Knight, is due out in April 2013. I also write short stories from time to time, and these you can find at Amazon. Like a lot of f ...moreMore about John Marco
