the fantasy books I couldn t finish this one It was typical fantasy I couldn t finish this one It was deluded mess of a book suffering from the same problems of the first book I am not continuing this seriesNot recommended Though the Norren are very interesting people I find the sudden focus shift from learning about the ins and outs of the Magic system to Let s single handedly start and end a war a bit disappointing It s also getting tedious following so many characters who have an almost identical sense of humour as the base of their whole personality It is starting to feel like the main 4 are the same people with slightly different twists to them Dark Guy Proud Guy Tough Girl and Old Guy aren t doing enough to define them when they all interact the same way Even though I wish the Norren weren t the main focus they ended p being the interesting part of the story seeing as they have diverse personalities than Sarcastic jerk with 1 other trait I really enjoy the writing style The sarcasm is great The combat is gritty and brutal The story is compelling The only issue I have is that sometimes it hard to tell the characters apart A lot of them are very similar I ve seen the criticism from other readers I don t think this
is as as the first one but I want to argue about the reasons why this one is hurting First there s a plot device related to trust that is continually focused on throughout the entire novel It could be something that is overdone a Hears a nearby norren clan is in possession of the ivering Bow a legendary artifact that can strike down walls with a single arrow his course is clear With such a weapon he can secure independence for both the norren and Narashtovik But the bow has been taken by the enemy Following a trail of pirates and slavers Dante Blays and a clan This is a 20 hour long audiobook that could be about 10 hours shorter Maybe Little chunks of exciting things happen in between long stretches of not muchOn the other hand the banter between Dante and Blays is still ite enjoyable and made me laugh on a few occasionsAnd listening to Tim Gerard Reynolds tell a story where not much happens is still pretty goddamn amazing So it wasn t too bad Weaker than book 1 Hoping book 3 is better than both Hmm well first off this book contains foul language I feel like I ve been kidnapped by a good writer with a toilet tongue and a dark sense of humor No I will not recommend this to anyone if you wish to subject yourself go ahead Suffers from typical middle book issues Very long not as much gets accomplished Still these are interesting characters with some nice worldbuilding so I will finish out the series The funny interaction between the Blays and Dante and their youthful arrogance are on par with the first book and while I like the writing style this was way too slow paced to a fault I considered putting it away for good but was rewarded towards the end where it accelerated to an incredible pace Given the amount of characters in than aone is as
few Much better than the1st book I really struggled to finish listening to the first book but kept at itbook I really struggled to finish listening to the first book but kept at it better than the 1st book I really struggled to finish listening to the first book but kept at it I could see that there were good bones to the book And I m so glad I did The author seems to have honed his skills because book 2 was well worth the time I imagine that book 3 is even bett.

It One less chapter just to replace the chapter that felt like it was just missing about 23 in The battle on the river and then the battle in the village follows so fast with no transition that it jolts a reader a bit to catch on The break between Blays and Dante at the end is predictable but so happy that the victory is made hollow the way the second book in a trilogy should Perhaps the fact that I m reading this now right after Doctor Strange and I feel that the break with a trusted ally is overused Finally there s the mystery plot about halfway in The rush back to Narashtovik might as well be the Tortuga battlecry of the PotC fame Let s go back to N Let s rush to N Dude s dead what are you going to do The betrayal of the priest was randomly chosen and his own involvement in the fight in the village makes me cringe a lot So many other better options All of this and i still love the conversations Still love the idioms and phrases of modern day civilization anachronistically applied in a fantasy world Still love the fights for the modern day belief that slavery is a bad thing ThereAre So Many Otherso many other that we could target but we continue to hit slavery I just remember the eighties and this being the fantasy mainstream So a century and a score after the US finally abolished slavery we finally moved it into the realm of fantasy But we do not get into the after effects of slavery Seems like we have an abundance of that to inform our writing today I wish we could get there.
