This sequel immediately picks up from where the first book ends, and unfortunately, it pales in comparison and nearly falls victim to the Second Book Syndrome (aka when the second installment consists of gigantic filler content between the first and last books). The adventure-filled journeying format from its predecessor is retained, albeit the writing is not as strong and tended to drag in places.

Ultimately, I tried really hard to love Soul of the Sword, but I just couldn’t. Nonetheless, I am cautiously optimistic about the final book of this trilogy.

Full review to follow.

3 stars
* Read more of my bookish shenanigans in my natural habitat.
