If you liked the first book alright, and are undecided as to rather or not to give the sequel a try, go ahead and read this one. You'll feel better about the series as a whole once you have.
His first task is to go to khron's temple where he is to speak to a priest, Aswick. His is given a history of the dwarfs and a book left by a powerful grand master wizard ancestor Kel, that contains the keys to both his tasks and spells he will need to complete his task. With the king’s permission and an unexpected companion, Farell, his life partner Miceral, and Peter the prince, (who is to complete his first sea voyage) then set off to locate the first artifacts by sea to the blocked off kingdom of Dumbarten's capital city Dreth. While at sea Farell comes into contact with messengers of the Goddess of the sea, Arritisa. the servants convey the message that they must take him to under to a place called Rastoria to receive his message. In following them he meets the goddess Arritisa's hidden people the Arlefors.
While he is at Rastoria the ship they are on is attached by pirates, so Farrell has to learn what he needs to know and make it back to help defend the ship. The adventure is only at the start.
There is so much more that happens that I can't say without giving to much away.
First I would like to say that I don't normally read GLBT Literature, but this novel is tasteful and far from overbearing. The author was able to write an adventure that was interesting and left you wanting. Would I refer this novel, Yes! I was left on the edge of my seat wondering what is going to happen next. The lead character is no push over and I'm rooting for him. It was a bit of a cliffhanger and not a standalone, but it's a series so I expected that. Definitely worth the read!
This has a bit slower pace than the first one, not as much action, it seems to be a transitional book, setting up the coming quests. To me it was still very enjoyable. In place of different battles we have angst. Plus it puts Farrell's flaws front and center. He's far from perfect. Where his abilities are concerned, he is arrogant and condescending at times. He can be emotional and becomes impatient with others trying to step in, sometimes confusing the ones who are speaking only out of concern for him and his quest with the ones that have their own agendas. His saving grace in these situations is that he is willing to admit his mistakes. All of this makes him human in spite of his extraordinary powers.
It makes him vulnerable.
As in the first book, this can get heavy on the dialogue with the histories and explanations of magic being given. Yet, I think it's necessary to have all of this done so we are prepared as the action moves to the forefront in later books.
The bottom line is if you like fantasy series with well thought out world building and characters that aren't perfect this could be a winner for you.
Prince Farrell of Haven just continues to grow on me as a character, as does his life partner Miceral and their relationship. Mr. Gordon did a great job with Miceral in this installment. At one point I got soooo annoyed at Miceral. I understood why he was protecting Farrell, but I truly wanted to reach in to the book and grab him and start shaking him! It takes a really good author to get me that invested in a story!
In “The Eye and the Arm” Farrell and Miceral continue their journey on the road to battling Farrell’s true father, the evil wizard Meglar.
When Farrell is Chosen by Khron, the god of war, it comes with the task of freeing the Dwarves of Trellham who were banished into the void 3,000 years ago. How does one go about freeing something trapped in the void? Say nothing about an entire dwarf population trapped there? Since he has no clue, Farrell has to set off on a trip to find Kel, his many times great-grandfather…who just might still be alive!
Along with their friends, families and adopted families, they will combat evil, fight fierce pirates, discover an unknown underwater civilization, and learn more about Farrell’s powers and his position as Chosen of a growing number of gods! And along with the being Chosen part, come all those additional tasks that he has to complete.
I could go on and on. I really loved this book, and if we had a rating of more than 5.0, I’d use it on this one. I don’t see a release date yet for book three, but I will be eagerly awaiting word of its arrival! I very highly recommend you read this book if you are into high fantasy series. Take my advice and read “The Last Grand Master” first for character development, background and continuity. Get them both today, so that you’re ready when book three comes out!
