It's difficult to say too much without spoiling things for people who haven't yet read the first novel but there is more Meite action, political intrigue and my favorite chapter in the book features the Xanthians. The prologues have been, so far, all glimpses into the past. They reveal more and more about what The Eye of the Lion is and I don't think I've read about another artifact of power (a staple of the fantasy stable) quite like this. This author keeps giving me answers in a way that has me asking more questions and being driven to read onward.
I don't know how many books he has planned in this world but I look forward to each one.
And I liked the story so much I *hate* that there is a "but".
It's the formatting and font. It's horrid. Garish page breaks, chapter headers are all wrong-looking, the font style is awful. I looked to make sure it wasn't a galley proof, but no...it's a finalized copy, so those kinds of things matter. Every couple of pages, even overlooking the font, I'd hit a page break or a new chapter heading and it would throw me right out of the story and back in the real world.
Building on the world and plot introduced in the first book, this sequel can now take the time to focus on exploring and developing the characters and their motivations. The character arcs for Aiul and Ahmed both are quite entertaining to follow.
This book is very much part of a series -- I am looking forward to the future books so I can find out where all this is headed.
