I'm very glad I did. All Who Wander is a delightful urban fantasy romp, and although it's the second in a series, I didn't need to have read the first to understand exactly what was going on. It has just the right amount of dark and gritty, but the author is careful to feed the reader tiny nibbles of hope to keep you going through the book. I tore through it in an afternoon and immediately went out and bought the prequel.
A solid 5/5 that I'm so glad I tried.
This book is a top-notch sequel to the trials in the life - or afterlife - of Icarus Fell. Without question, this is a triumphant return to the story of a man reformed as he struggles to survive in the space between spaces. Bruce Blake is fantastic with his ability to weave so many elements, twist and turns, into his work and there is no way any dark fantasy reader would not enjoy this second book.
In this second book, I found out I may not know all the characters as well as I thought I did. It is possible that some of them may be "one part angel and one part danger" - as Chris Daughtry so eloquently sings it. I must admit I didn't enjoy this book as well as the first. I LIKED it and don't regret reading it, but I found all the time spent in Hell to be a bit too much. I wished there was more to the story than Ric and the others constantly getting lost and some parts were confusing. If the latter part of the book had spent somewhere else, or if more information were revealed, I think it would have been better.
I do look forward to the third book, but it's so hard to wait! I am a die-hard Blake fan and, even though I didn't like this book as much as the first, I'm certainly glad I read it and learned more about my favorite characters and series. Keep writing and write faster, Mr. Blake!
Once again, I'm hooked right at the beginning as I was with the first book. I have to admit, although I love the writing, the author's imagination, and following the characters established with the first book - these books are so very dark I feel the need to take a break before continuing on with the next book in the series. This is more a reflection of my own sensativities than anything negative about the book, series, or author.
This being the second book, I was looking forward to seeing Ric (Icarus) begin to come into his own at his new "job." No, that is not at all what we get here. But, hey, I'm not the author, and given how well Bruce Blake managed the first novel in the series, I was game to see what happpens when Ric tries to go back and undo his mistakes.
The short answer is - He screws up again. And again. And again. I don't think I'm giving away the plot here because if you have read the first novel, then you know Ric was not a winner in life. After dying and being brought back as a harvester of souls, he continued to screw up by acting like a child.
To his credit, Blake stuck with a fundamental truth of humanity: We are what we are. Ric was a whiny guy in life. He's still a whiny guy after death. Forget the heavenly mission, surrounding angels and demons and carrion (people with the same job as himself, just working for the other team), Ric can't do anything without at least one wise-crack (which he's pretty good at) and several pages of whining (which is tiresome). He's the "why me" guy everyone knows.
I'd hoped for a little character progression, though. I don't know if this entire novel was a setup for progression or just the next logical step for Ric in Blake's eyes.Read more ›
