I dove into this sequel to The Narrowing Path right away, because I really enjoyed reading the first part of the series. I enjoyed it, but it isn’t as good as its predecessor.
The story and plotline continue in a good flow, are exciting, and of similar quality as those in the first book.
However, there is more of what I call emotion-telling. It’s where an author tells you ‘Jimmy was sad’, instead of telling you about the quiver of his lip and the way he takes a deep breath before he steps inside the bar. It’s not necessarily a bad thing and a lot of writers do it (myself included), but it get annoying when there’s too much of it. David Normoyle also used this method in the first part of the series, but there I noticed it less. There’s enough of a mix-up of styles to still make for a nice read, but I would have liked to see a little less emotion-telling.
Also, I think the book could use one final edit. There are a number of what I suspect are typo’s of the kind no spelling checker catches. (I noted most of them and will make them available to the author, because there is little as evil as telling a writer there’s a typo in his book, but not what or where it is.) It’s not the end of the world and quite some professionally edited books have them. At the last part of the book there are a few sentences that suggest that parts have been taken out, leaving hiccups in the way they read. All in all, not serious enough to prevent you from enjoying this book, but enough to catch my eye and mention it.
A nice read and I have high hopes for the third part in the series.

It's been three years since Bowe earned a place for the Bellingers when he survived the testing time of the Green Path The Narrowing Path (The Narrowing Path Series)
He has not carved out the place for the Bellingers he had thought to. The Bellangers do not have an empire and hope of returning them to their original place is fading. Other family's are looking to displace them.
His latest venture looks to fail spectacularly. On that note it looks like Bowe's pack of card will come tumbling down. His realization that he has squandered the three years he'd had is slow to register.
Barely escaping with his life ahead of the Dulnato, his enemy from the Green Path, of the Grenier family, Bowe flees from the city after meeting with Coensaw the leader of the Guild, a powerful underbelly group in the society. Bowe runs into bandits and takes refuge as a scribe in a farming community where he begins to see things that might aid his cause. Then there's the invading army from Jarind led by Washima. This group from the neighbouring country were so shocked by the way Arcandis society works and it's way of dealing with the Infernam they took up arms to free the Aarcandis people from tyranny. The Arcandis people feel differently. They want self determination, not others making war on their land. Theirs is the choice for their way of life. It is not for others to invade and make that decision for them.
Once more Bowe takes a hand in the game of harmony, albeit belatedly, and decides on a course of action.
