There is also a lot of solid world building in this book. While the first book lacked a bit of explanation this one easily makes up for it. The only gripe I have is the inconsistency of the MC on how much he explains to others about himself and his magic. We will see his inner monologue in one chapter where he is thinking he must not let anyone know more about his limitations or how his enchantments work and then two chapters later he is telling people about his enchantments and his limitations.
Would definitely recommend.
I feel like everything that made the first book great was present. Even better, everything is evolving, and Daniel isn't a one man army anymore. Well he is, but he's surrounded by good people who can also deliver punishment to the overwhelming enemy forces.
I'll just leave off by mentioning that there are some sweet uses of transformation magic in this book. The tactical advantages of larger breasts, err, I mean enhanced strength and claws, cannot be overstated.
E. William Brown takes his time setting the stage in this story and I think it pays off. The action may not be as intense as the first book, but there's plenty going on, the story moves along at a good pace and builds the logic and reasoning for Daniel's efforts.
A good read, fast paced, with interesting situations; fantasy fans will enjoy this series.
Aside from that, the book is a true sequel to the first Fimbulwinter. Picking up within a few weeks of the end of the last book. The author is showing even more Japanese Light Novel influence in this book. To my delight, and also a little to my dismay. The good bits far outweigh the bad. And the book never has a dull moment. My kind of read.
If this author gets a good proofer, and learns how to add drama without adding NTR. He'd jump into my fantasy top ten authors of all time. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
The violence is fantastic, the battle scenes realistic. Both the bad guys and the people caught up in the battles and the heroes suffer equally. The sexual content between Daniel Black and his ladies is fun and not disgusting. It's mostly a lot of word play between characters, reminding me a bit of Leo Frankowski Stargod series, may he rest in peace.
The story ends on a good note with something of a cliffhanger. The man obviously had a lot more writing on his computer and is saving it for the next edition, and I cannot wait for the third book.
