Review by: Brooke Seals on July 24, 2013 :
Spoiler Alert: The second book of this series picks up after a needed time gap from the first, with our hero almost grown, and drops us in during his character development as a young man. The previous book ended at a perfect stopping point at the end of a climactic battle, so it is interesting to zero in on a character that is the focal point, and also that the reader can learn about the world the author is creating, with them as they grow and learn in the narrative. I enjoyed the plot twist at the end and the unforeseen path the hero takes. As a sequel this book was a good follow up, and the further development of the religious views and deities with their varying theologies, and combined mythology and folklore, were refreshing. The best part of book 2 for me was journeying with the main character and understanding his choices and actions, I felt totally in sync and part of the story, even though some events were surprising and unforeseen. Already reading the third book of the series and looking forward to more.
