So I went ahead and read the first Book in the trilogy with much enjoyment. However, I held off of purchasing this the second book as many of the reviews noted large amount of typos and errors in the book.

Then I hopped onto the author's blog and noticed several posts about revisions to his books already on Amazon's, urging readers to re-download them.

Effectively, he's patched his books, fixing the rougher portions and problems. Being a self-starter, I can understand the reasoning. Now looking forward to the book, I purchased it at the first opportunity.

It didn't disappoint. While I enjoyed the first a bit more (which I believe has as much to with my almost never enjoying the middle of a trilogy as much as the beginning or the end) I still had a good time and did enjoy some of the methods the author used to play the reader into his hands. I won't give away much of the plot, aside from the warning that the author does manage to break a few tropes, even if he falls into a few other tried and true ones. Let's just say if your thought you knew what was going on at the end of the first book, be prepared for some eye openers, as well as some more knowledge about how the world is working.

I enjoyed the second book quite a bit, and am looking forward to the third title (when I pick it up).

One and a half stars. I rounded the review upwards to two stars as Amazon does not allow half ratings. The only thing that will cause me to finish this trilogy is the low cost and my curiosity regarding how the series will end.

My reasons for one and a half overall stars:

EDITING!!! This fact alone caused me to reduce the book from five to three and a half stars. If I thought the editing was poorly done on the first book, the second in the series reads almost as if it were a rough draft. As you read through the first half of the book you will notice numerous grammatical and spelling errors, erroneous usage of homonyms and the clunky use of language that was present in the first book, but the second half of this book is even worse. About mid-way through the book I noticed these errors were becoming more common, and even at some points additional errors were creeping in, such as misattribution of dialogue (in one case "Ether" is essentially talking to herself). Towards the end of the book there are even sentences that contained words and phrases that did not even belong in the sentence, much as if the author was writing one thing, changed his mind and deleted a portion of the original text but not all. This seriously compromises the flow of the novel and removes the reader from any semblance of immersion in the story. Loss of one and a half stars simply for poor editing.

Poor detailing of action. Without giving too many spoilers, in one action sequence the protagonists are battling a created version of the dragon as well as one of the antagonist generals. These "dragoyles", which number at least fifty, are constantly "focusing" on the antagonists but never seem to come within striking distance.

I enjoyed the first book, so I had high hopes for the following books. This book was such a disappointment that I don't know if I can force myself to read the third book.
*****Spoiler Alert*****
Killing off Myn (the baby dragon) pretty much did it for me. I completely lost interest at that point. Before, when the dragon suffered fatal injuries, Myranda was willing to sacrifice her life to save Myn's. When Myn dies in book 2, Myranda's reaction was nothing like it had been in book 1. I didn't feel her suffering... She just moved on. Let's go on to Ivy's character. She comes across as completely pathetic. Once she was introduced, and Myn was killed, Ether almost had me convinced that yes, these characters were useless and should be wiped out. I found myself wishing everyone in the book would just be incinerated somehow, so it would all come to an end. Yes, there were grammatical issues in books 1 and 2, but I can look past that as long as the story still draws me in. Book 2 felt different, and Myranda was left out of the story too much. Also, please make chapters and a table of contents. When I read a book without chapters, it makes me wonder what your outline looked like.

A let down from how much I enjoyed the first book of trilogy. By the time I read this edits must have been made. Still needs edits but the low score was due to the non-ending battle scenes.

Would have read better removing 1/3 or more of the book.

Removing the most interesting and highly described characters really took away the thrill for me.

Barely made myself finish reading it. Purchased the 2nd and 3rd book right after reading 1st in trilogy. Suggest you don't waste the time even with cost so low on Kindle because it ruined how good 1st one made me feel.

This review covers the complete “Book of Deacon” original trilogy, the Book of Deacon, the Great Convergence, and the Battle of Verril. It does not include the Rise of the Red Shadow (I have a separate review posted for for that), Jade (a short novel that takes place after the trilogy), or the newly released fourth book, the D’Karon Apprentice.
The three books in this series vary in format and style as well as quality. All of them are very good but not all of them are excellent; or rather, not all scenes in all of them are excellent. The first one is the best, though perhaps not as flawless as the Rise of the Red Shadow. Lallo develops his characters very well, changing them slowly and appropriate so that they are very different yet very much the same in the end compared to the beginning. He makes you fall for them all and makes them all believable and unaffected. I was impressed that the majority of his protagonists are strong yet vulnerable female characters. He weaves a long, complicated story, pulling the reader in gently and revealing the more confusing layers later on when they can be properly understood. His action scenes are unique and varying and the mythology of his world is well developed, interesting, and intriguing.
However, frequently in the second book and to a degree in the third, the battle scenes, both in their frequent appearance and in their style, reminded me of a video game. In my opinion, Lallo overemployed and depended on these battles of the forts and wrote them in ways that made them seem like individuals battles with the various bosses in a game, right down to the exit being blocked. That said, the battles were unique, believable within the world as he wrote it, and, for the most part, easy to follow and visualize, and ultimately they furthered the storyline.
