4.5*

Book 2 of this series continues the breakneck intensity of Book 1. I am always in awe of the imagination of fantasy authors and bow before their genius. All the battle strategies, subplots and political dealings at times leave me cross-eyed. Having said that, there is a lot to love here. Numerous secondary characters are introduced in this book and they are all lovable (well the male ones - I found most of the female characters detestable, especially Rahendo's foul mouthed sisters). There are many laugh out loud moments, which you will need to balance the gruesome ones. Anaxantis is forced to grow up fast. I find it hard to believe he's only 17. He reads like he's in his 20s. Loved the twists and turns and, even though, I didn't seee the development I would have liked for Ehandar, it seems like he will have more of a focus in Book 3.

All in all, a very well written book with a few continued flaws from Book 1 - spelling errors (though not that many given that the book is almost 600 pages), the continued use of modern jargon and the paragraphs of thoughts in Italics (though nowhere near as much as Book 1).

Really enjoying this author. On to Book 3!

13.51% "Wow! Eerie. Ehandar finding himself with the opportunity, tempted to snap Anaxantis' neck. Anaxantis wondering if this is the moment where Ehandar finally breaks and makes an attempt on his life. Offering his neck to him, sliding his eyes open to see the tears of frustration and restraint as Ehandar backs off. Really, really well done. Dag, gave me goosebumps."
