Book Description

Caina is now a Ghost nightfighter, with the cunning of an elite spy and the skill of a master assassin.

But this time, it might take more than that to keep her alive.

Caina has been sent to hunt a murderous pyromancer, a master of fiery sorcery, and she soon discovers that more is at stake than just a few murders.

Because if she doesn't find the pyromancer soon, the entire world might burn.

Starting with her...

2.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed book #1 and was looking forward to the sequel, but to steal a quote from Caina, this "got sloppy" from the start.

Chapter 1: We are reminded that Caina is now one of the empire's elite assassins. The home she is sneaking into has a few loud guards who "are barely adequate to keep out common thieves". Yet our elite Ghost forgets to lock the door behind her, and then proceeds to get caught because she forgot to hide.

Chapter 2: Halfdan is apparently semi-retarded now...he holds loaded crossbows to the heads of people he's known for years and forces them to recite inane secret phrases when they come to his inn, even though he's even expecting them. The second time he does this, the other Ghost tells him its stupid, but Halfdan says "protocol is protocol" and threatens to shoot him anyway. Perhaps he's a meth head and tweaking.

He also seem upset that someone used the front door of his inn, even though it was unlocked, and its a, well, an inn. With this type hospitality I assumed that there probably weren't any (living) guests, but come to find the place is full for breakfast the next day.

Oh, and this quote: "Caina did not know what Halfden did before becoming a Ghost, but suspected he might have been a vintner." Umm, perhaps the author didn't read his first book where Halfdan talks at length about being a vintner while they train at the vineyard? At this point I was starting to suspect this wasn't going to end well.

As it turns out, I couldn't make it to the end. Watching Caina infiltrate a barracks by hiding under beds in the bunk room during shift change, then count to 300, and magically everyone went to sleep...it was really bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable November 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book in the series, but the author seems to have forgotten what his heroine can do from one book to another. (He made this mistake with his hero in Book 3 of another series he wrote as well.) You'd think that, if he could so carefully and deeply develop a character, he could remember the important characteristics of them. I personally find it really jarring. Nevetheless, this book was another entertaining sword and sorcery book from the author, and I've just bought Book 3 of the series.

This is book #2 in the Ghosts series.
Nightfighter Caina is sent to the town of Rasadda, aided by Ark, a Centurion. She
is working under her Countess Marianna Nereide persona. Who is
setting people on fire in the town? Is it the nobles or the poor trying to rise
up against the nobles in en masse? Or is it the long dead sorcerers whose
learnings in powerful fire magics - could they have returned? Can Ark and Caina
stop whoever it is? Read and find out! Must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel August 11, 2014
By Bret
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit that book two could be considered somewhat repetitive relative to book one.

However, the general concept of the books is so unique and interesting, that I didn't mind at all. In an interesting twist in the magical fantasy genre, those with magic are pretty much all evil or at least severely flawed, and the heroine (who has no magic at all) fights against the magical and saves the world - again.

The pace is wonderfully fast, the world captivating, and the characters well done. There's a nice balance between tragic setbacks and stunning victories, with good prevailing over evil in the end.

I don't mind typos, but if they drive you crazy, you won't like this series. A little more editing effort would've been helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read August 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this probably more than the first in the series, maybe because I wasn't being reminded so much of her past. It was more subtle. I liked the new characters and situations. The main character still has a nasty job but I like her.
The story flows well, with clues and hints as to who she is looking for, and a very small hint of romance...maybe in the next book.

3.0 out of 5 stars read the first book and enjoyed it very much July 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm torn, read the first book and enjoyed it very much, even the spelling and grammar errors did not bother me as much as it bothered some readers. The second book was good, however the story line was Way to close to the first book, seams that just a few things were altered. Also, would like to see the the heroines character develop more. I have not read the third book yet, hoping it is a different plot from the first two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unique and adventurous material! June 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like powerful, independent women, who are not afraid to assert themselves. I believe in power through pain and adversity. If this describes your interests, then you will find this entertaining. Moeller is a credit, a scholar and a gentleman who is worthy of praise. He is well-rounded enough to be a Linux and PC guru and is also a well-established writer of fiction.

I am usually not drawn to medieval stories, yet this is one where the mystical magic and sorcery is not outrageous and over-played. If you enjoy sorcery and old-fashioned elite fighters of hand to hand combat skill, check this series out!

Spellbinding! This is a fantastic series written by a inspirational writer. Can not wait to read the next book in this group. After reading the first two books I am in love with the characters and their adventurous lives. Read at your own risk for the story line is addictive!
