"The Warrior Prophet" picks up the momentum of the first book in the series and keeps on rolling. The plot moves into the Holy War itself and supplies plenty of action and magic that the first book so sorely lacked. The book does continue the "heaviness" of the first book, but do not mistake this as droll--it is a sophistcated deepness so often lacking in modern fantasy that hearkens more towards the writings of Stephen R. Donaldson or Guy Gavriel Kay. It is also strongly helped by a "What Has Gone Before" preface that shores up some of the confusion of the first book. All in all "The Warrior Prophet" is a worthy novel that promises even greater things to come. I just hope the final book continues the momentum of the first two. If so, it may very well garner my first five-star rating since joining Goodreads.
