The prologue is extremely well crafted—a heart-thumping action sequence with darkness, drama, and death that leaves the reader breathless. From there, the plot moves along quickly, though there are a number of interesting subplots that serve to develop the supporting cast. Yet, you never lose the sense of continuity, or the feeling of something greater and far more dangerous overshadowing everything that transpires.
The characters from the first book are still here as well. Keegan, the main protagonist, remains delightful, but thankfully seems to have acquired a brain. He is not nearly as dense as he is portrayed in book one. This may be in part thanks to the mysterious Dayspeaker, Walneff, who has been challenging Keegan’s mind since book one. Pharrgon is still a gem—writing a dragon with personality is no mean feat. Yet, Pharrgon continues to exude personality as well as a biting sense of humor. Erewhon is possibly my least favorite character to date, but she shows marked growth in this installment. The love/hate relationship between her and Keegan continues to run hot and cold, but when was love ever easy? Annaka, remains a joy, still attempting to connive her way around everyone. Yet, she meets her match in the form of the young, gifted lad, Arden. There are a plethora of other interesting characters including the stalwart Saul and the irrepressible Gillion to name just a few.
Overall, this is a fun, exciting book—a far step above the author’s first novel. It was a joy to read, and comes highly recommended.
