A must read! I'm happy I finally chose to the series.
The characters continue to grow and develop as well. Cazia Freewell, the young magic user continues to develop her powers. There's also a neat twist on the use of magic in this world. Cazia is accompanied by a young nomad named Kinz and a princess nicknamed Ivy. Having three strong, complex female characters is a treat. Tejohn Treygar continues on his epic journey to fulfill his mission for his king but not without seeing more than his share of tragedy and success.
I absolutely cannot wait until the last book in the trilogy comes out in early February 2015. Then I hope Harry gets cracking on his next project.
If you liked the first then you will definitely be happy here. The characters evolve, the world is expanded upon, and mythology explored. Some questions are answered but there are many more new branches that open up. I tore through this book as i could not take my eyes off the pages. :)
The world events are still interesting, the mysteries that are hinted at had me turning pages to see what new information would be revealed - Who's behind the invasion? What's up with the gods? Where are the evening people?
This book continues the stories of Tejohn and Cazia, and while I wasn't really captivated by them in the first book, I found myself becoming more and more attached to them and caring about them as I progressed through the book. I'm not sure if the change was in them or in me but they have sort of grown on me.
Really looking forward to the next part of the series.
The one gripe that I have with this book is that the author seems fond of cliff hangers which is an unforgivable offense in my book, but is somewhat mitigated in this instance since all three book are coming out so close to each other.
A good 4.5 stars.
Not a complete book in itself but one of those that just ends suddenly without resolving much at all. You will need to read the next book to get any sense of completeness in the overall story.
Highly recommended for anyone who loves adventure/fantasy.
Anyway, the only thing that bugs me is that the books, at least so far, have ended on an overly dramatic cliffhanger.
So far, so good. I hope he keeps up the solid pace, novelty and adventure.

Sometimes it gets a bit out of joint, but overall fascinating.
