In this book, I found Quinn - the male lead - to be more of a sidekick, with Kate taking center stage. This felt fine to me, but was a change from the first book. This book did a better job of developing the antagonist, which isn't done enough in fantasy books and was helpful to develop the wrinkles and nuances that make this more than just "good vs. evil."
I really enjoyed how the author developed a couple side players in this story, most notably Tim and Kieran. Similar to Janus in the first book, these characters provide a needed reprieve from the love birds who naturally need to consume most of our attention.
If I had to criticize, I'd say the second quarter of this book was too slow. Once I got to the half-way mark, and the book started flying all the way to the end. I also liked the foreshadowing the author does early in the book, which provides some hints later when the mystery threatens to be too much.
I'm excited to read the third book. I typically find trilogies trading on the value of the first book, but this book was entertaining even as a stand-alone. I hope this author gets the recognition he deserves, which will hopefully encourage him to keep writing! I'll definitely buy his next book.
Band of Demons continue the saga of Quinn and Kate aka the Prince of Sanheim. It starts out with a bang and doesn't let up. The introduction of new characters is great and the return of a few known characters just add to the plot. I was happy to see Janus again, even briefly.
Blackwell has created characters that really touch your heart. I was rooting for Quinn and Kate like they were old friends. Blackwell turned up the excitement, revealed more of the history of the PRINCE that is turning into quite an interesting mythology. I was worried for awhile that their nemesis in this story would turn out to be the Pied Piper but I was pleasantly surprised. Okay, I'll shut up before I have to post a spoiler alert!!
Band of Demons was an amazing second installment from Blackwell and he has me completely hooked. I honestly cannot wait for Book 3. The end of Book 2 left us at a great precipice and I wait to see where he takes this series.
If you haven't read the Sanheim Chronicles, read it first-- but read it -- this is an author who is definitely worth your time. And then read Band of Demons and you'll be just like me ... waiting impatiently for Book 3.
Blackwell is a truly gifted writer and I cannot wait to see more of his work
I have to say book 2 didn't disappoint. Although at first when they started out at the psyche ward I was a bit confused but as I kept reading it made more and more sense. This book added a lot of great details and twists that one didn't see coming. After all, generally when you have the "heroes" in a story you expect them to overcome all the evil in the end and that they always stay on the "right" path of decency, moral highroad, all of that but this book twists that a bit and shows you how having the powers that Kate & Quinn have can possibly corrupt even the most noble of people.
The way the author brings you only a little bit at a time of information is also wonderful; it keeps you intrigued to keep reading and not wanting to put the book down because you keep having more questions as you get more answers and that's always a brilliant way of writing that is often overlooked by giving the reader all the information in one fell swoop in either the beginning, middle or ending of a book.
In this case the author kept you asking questions throughout the entire book and the ending, which I will NOT spoil for anyone who hasn't read this book yet is also something special that you don't see done very often; especially when the book is one of a series being written. I can really and truthfully state that I cannot wait for book 3 in this series.
