Read 2 times. Last read November 23, 2009.

Second time through, and as an audiobook, I enjoyed more than the first time.

I think it's better than the first book too. However, like Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars, or even the first two Hunger Games movies, the second can only be better due to building on the first. Building on the story and characters.

Kellhus is fucking terrifying. Probably one of the best villains in any fantasy book I've read. Also, weirdly, one of the best heroes.

Full review on my podcast, SFBRP episode #269.

Matt Uebel Kellhus. Seriously. I hope to hear more from you on this topic in the review. (I'm sure I will)

To me, the whole concept of the Dunyain is utterly fascinating, particularly when it starts involving these notions of "The Outside", the God of Gods, etc.
