Notable among these are the Red Conclave and the other wizards. While it retains something of a power-fantasy feeling, it's quite refreshing to see Daniel interacting with others who work on something like his level. Fimbulwinter was an enjoyable introduction to Daniel, his new powers and the world; Black Coven does a good job of continuing and expanding on this, retaining the feeling while not simply repeating Fimbulwinter's approach.
The hints of future plot which occur here leave a good feeling about the direction of the remainder of the series. I much enjoyed the book, and I am, as usual, happily anticipating future installments.
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.
That out of the way, I cannot express how much fun I had reading this book. We get to see Daniel try and integrate himself into the existing power structure in his new location, and I had a blast seeing him take what he new of modern warfare, and using magic to convert it into a medieval world. There will be some who will say that Daniel becomes too powerful in this book but, with the types of enemies he is facing, he never felt completely unstoppable to me. More importantly than that though, is that the other supporting characters get a bigger role to play, and help balance out the story. Thankfully no matter how strong Daniel or his followers get, there is always a sense of hopelessness and tension that seems to hang around, which keeps things moving.
Bottom line is this. If you liked the first book, or are a fan of this genre, you will like this book. I do hope that there is a bit of a return to form when it comes to the sexplay in book 3, but either way I will be eagerly awaiting each installment.
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.
