Sumto and his companions have not come through his first taste of war unscathed. Jocasta nearly died; Sapphire was beaten almost to death; Meran broke a leg, and Sumto defeated his enemy only by carrying him bodily into a fire - his only excuse for such stupidity is that he was fairly drunk at the time.


Still, the influence of the necromancers over the barbarians of the nor

Possibly the most powerful passage in the book, and a viewpoint I agree wholeheartedly with.

It was a common theme of religions, or what little I had read of them.

The story continues and our reluctant hero faces more challenges in his quest to just survive being him. Still hooked on the story and look forward to more. It's interesting that in these stories the bad guys are bad and the good guys are kinda bad. Not all of them mind you, but enough to keep Sumto on his toes.

Liked the first book enough to buy this one. It did not disappoint, and lead to me buying the next in the series within 30 seconds of finishing this one. Excellent characters all around. Love the story line. I am already hoping there are many more books in the series to come.
