The story was always a good one and in book 2 it just gets better, now that we have characterization, a much expanded setting and a greater cast of characters as the problems of Gods and men spin out of control not to just the city of Ossard, or the Heletian League, or the country of Dormetia, but a full on world war. Life versus Death... Good guys versus Bad guys... The final throw down is in book 3. I wouldn't miss it! Mr. Taber has gotten good enough at writing fantasy that the next book is bound to be divine.
You don't get a lot of input from the bad guys in this book, more about Juvela and her followers getting settled in the ruins. A lot about Sef and Anton and last but not least, the Inquisition and the Lae Valsanans too. Not a ton of action in this book if that's what you're looking for. I still believe that this story was head and shoulders above the first book.
More is explained about the magic system of not only the Flet's, but also the Inquisition, the renegades, the Cabal and the Law Valsanans. There is even an appendix at the end of the book that explains things that were'nt explained in the story. Very helpful...
I recommend this series to anyone who likes good fantasy - it just keeps getting better. Book 1 was rather flat, book 2 was quite good and I expect book 3 to be awesome. Give it a try.
The story picks up where The Fall of Ossard concluded following the fall of the city. Ossard's Hope further expands on Juvela's internal struggles with her growing powers, the fight for control of the city and the overarching struggle between greater opposing gods.
The defining point in the crafting of this novel for me was the development of Sef and Anton. This was achieved through their complex relationship, their expanded role in the plot and their use as point of view characters.
Without a doubt I found myself continually captivated whilst reading this sequel. I loved The Fall of Ossard, but Ossard's Hope was a very surprising development in the trilogy; in character development, plot and the writer's skill. I can't fault this novel and conservatively give it a 4.5 star rating.
