3.5 stars:

As wonderful as I found the dark fantasy of Dusk, I was disappointed by Dawn, and the sad thing is that overall the book was good. There were lots of epic scenes, I loved the characters and how they developed, Lebbon's descriptions were still vivid and engaging...The only thing I can think of was a pacing problem. Where Dusk felt like things kept getting more and more tense, until I could barely stand it, I didn't get that from the sequel. The story had some great, tense scenes, but overall I think it meandered a bit too much. Like Lebbon spent a bit too much time indulging in his exploration of his new world, and lost track of the thread of the story a bit.

Still, if I stop comparing it, Dawn was a good read. I think when it's time to re-read it I'll just start with it instead of reading it as a sequel. I'm still looking forward to his 3 other Noreela books.
