The Waking of Orthlund (Chronicles of Hawklan) ...
The reviews published so are are about a Conan book by a different author.
For the first half of this book Hawklan effectively plays no part in the story as he is in his coma the entire time. Instead the story concentrates on the secondary characters and the quest of the Queen to awaken her father's people to the danger they stand in and the training of the Orthlund people for the upcoming battle with Sumeral.
This is a much slower paced book than the previous 2 instalments in this series. However, it is still a well written book and is obviously a set up for the final showdown between good and bad in the final book of the series.
Peopled with enjoyable characters and a well thought out world, this series of books so far has been much better than many other ongoing fantasy series I have read over the years. Recommended.
