Glass Dragons (Moonworlds Saga #2)

A broad and complicated novel filled with wonderful characters, woven through with low humor and great courage, and built upon grand acts of heroism and love. It is the tale of Laron, the chivalrous 700-year-old vampire, the appallingly dangerous and beautiful Velander, and the long-suffering Terikel, as they investigate a secret project of arcane magic, a magic so dangero

It was a good book but I liked the first one better. Its still funny and interesting but I just didn't get the sense of world-ending-disaster from Dragonwall that I did from Silverdeath.

This book is about someone who has worked in the palace for many, many years. Wallas was soon captured and his look-a-like wanted to kill the emperor disguised as him. Wallas manages to escape him bindings and make his way out of the castle. He changes himself from a nobleman to a mere peasant. He runs into a drunk fellow named Audry. At a place, formerly known as DragonWall, sorcerers are coming together to try to get rid of the storms by remaking the DragonWall. But it's a very dangerous task. ...more

(Original review here:
Comic fantasy is admittedly a difficult genre to carry off well. Plenty have failed. Some, like Joe Abercrombie, have carried the trick with remarkable flair - and it's only a pity that Glass Dragons, by Sean McMullen, can't be numbered amongst them. Our two protagonists - a Laurel and Hardy-esque pair - are one trick ponies. Wallas is fat. Andry is thin. Wallas is aristocratic and crass. Andry is lowborn and noble. Wallas has luck

More sedately paced and less focused than Voyage of the Shadowmoon, but still an enjoyable read. Includes characters from the first book (Terikel & Velander play fairly substantial parts), but I was hoping for more from Laron.

This is the second book I've read by McMullen and, while I can't say I laughed out loud, I do appreciate the humor and lightness of the fantasy - a good counterbalance to some of the dark, grim fantasies out there.

I have no idea how to describe this other than it is the most non-sensical, confusing, bizarre thing I have ever read. Until I can come up with an actual review for this book I've been plodding through for months, I leave you with two words...

Penis dragons.

It is a really good book, and it draws one in. I love this book because it seem real, yet at the same time, it is another reality.

Not as engrossing as the previous book, Voyage of the Shadowmoon, but definitely fleshes out the system of the world a great deal more.
