I enjoyed this second book even more than the first. Here more of the separate story elements introduced in the first book begin to weave together and form a more detailed picture of the world of Vorallon. The conflict playing out across that world is the heart of this story, and the details of that conflict are made clearer. Characters introduced in the first book are further developed here, in all of the races, including the very interesting gods. They are not what you would expect.
The story moves at a nicely even pace, with description and information woven through the action in a skillful fashion. It's easy to picture the settings and people while reading. Magic is plentiful, but the human element is just as interesting. The world is depicted as out of balance, with the dark forces overwhelming the light, leaving behind destruction and death. Lorace is the intended champion and last chance the gods have to correct the world's balance. He is gifted with impressive magic, but can't fight alone. It's a varied and colorful group of people that band together to make a stand against the dark - no puns intended there.
I had a lot of fun reading this book, and I certainly look forward to reading the conclusion of the story.
The story picks up where the first book left off at faster pace. The pace is driven by Thomas's world building. His eye for detail comes through when reading any of his works, and it does so here. Without revealing any spoilers I would say part of the fun in this read was how magic mixes together with science. While it is still magic being used the manner in which the author connects the two was quite enjoyable for me.
Of course most potential readers will want to know of the storyline. It is a classic good versus evil story. However I felt like the story was really a backdrop for the world in which Thomas was creating. That is the strength I found in the author's writing. Building a world without making the reader go to sleep from boredom takes a unique skill which I have rarely seen. I am looking forward to the final book in the series and hope Thomas will continue to write once that is complete.
