it was amazing

Excellent heroic fantasy – I really enjoyed A Time of Dread, but I think this book was even better. With the main characters already established, the story moves along at a terrific pace, with plenty of tension and rousing action to propel things forward. Character and plot development doesn’t fall by the wayside amidst it all, though, and by the end, everything’s set up beautifully for the final book.

I still have The Faithful and the Fallen, which is the precursor series to this one, sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read – something I’m very much looking forward to doing, when time finally allows – but as with A Time of Dread, I didn’t feel like I was missing out on important information by reading this series first.

A fantastic sequel, and the series is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys classic fantasy!
