really liked it

The Holy war continues and the Men of the Tusk march on to ancient Shimeh. Anasarumbor Kellhus the Warrior Prophet gains more and more followers and the nobles are starting to fear his growing power.

If you liked the first book, you will love this one. The story is so epic in scope i have trouble remembering the names of people and places. All the violence that the first one lacked is here, it's dark with gritty violence and sex, if you are squemish, this isn't for you. What i like most about this book is the main character Kellhus, he is an enigma, he is supposed to be the good guy, but who knows what a person that only follows logic and is almost unhuman in behavior is. I intend to find out by reading the last book in the trilogy.
