The first novel of this series was incredible and I had difficulty putting it down. In this, the second in the trilogy, Hoffman has weaved together an entrancing, compelling story with characters that I care about and feel a great deal of affection towards. This is a complete story in and of itself, but if you've read the first the continuation of the major story arc will be welcomed.

If you enjoy any fantasy of any kind, I can not not more heartily recommend this book as well as the original. The world is enticing, lush and magical, the characters teem with personality and the story is extremely well told. If anything, this is a stronger book than the original, and I already can't wait for the third novel.

Format: Paperback
Captain Vidarian Rulorat desperately opened the gates between worlds (see Sword of Fire and Sea). Now he faces the second order effect as elemental magic is no longer dormant as it had been for centuries. As a consequence of his action, many powerful people like his best friend Ruby died. War between Qui and his homeland Aloria has exploded since leaders in both nations believe the balance of power shifted due to the magic explosion.

The Aloria Emperor orders Vidarian to lead the sky ships in battle against the Qui and to train the demoralized Sky Knights to ride beasts that shapeshift. However, he has two missions besides keeping his country somewhat safe. First he wants his beloved fire priestess Ariadel back in his life and he needs to learn to control his new magical skills. However, Vidarian theorizes the real threat to his empire and their enemy comes from the powerful Alorian Import Company.

The second Chaos Knight fantasy is an engaging thriller that has less action than its predecessor but also provides much more insight into the Hoffman mythos. Although the world contains little freshness, this fast-paced tale will remind readers of the Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar saga as Vidarian's struggles with the moral implications of what he wrought.

This book deserves nothing less then 5 stars. I loved it immensely. It's full of action and suspense. I recommend all fantasy lovers, mythology buffs, and those looking for action and/or romance with a little something else to grasp this series! I can't wait for more.

Good sequel, but as is typical, there's a great deal of setup for the third book. Nothing quite like antici.....pation. The Starhunter's one of my favorite "flavor" characters she's nutty enough and dangerous enough to be an interesting voice in the protagonist's head.
