Good genre story but...
on April 14, 2013
Good light reading for the genre. Don't expect Robert Jordan or G.R.R. Martin depth and detail. This second installment doesn't finish the tale, and there is no indication when( or if ) the third installment to this 2010 publication will arrive.
Update #1: the author's web site says the third installment, Gates of Iron, will be available in 2013.
Update #2: Having missed both the 2013 and 2014 dates, the author's web site now promises the third installment but does not provide any time frame whatsoever. The author's release of several other books in 2014 ( using his other penname, David Wood ) suggests the third installment isn't a priority.
