A solid read which makes you hungry for the third and concluding book of the series. Much of fantasy is lessened by a total lack of realism, but not so with this series. Instead these books are given the heft of reality by the addition of a dash of gritty descriptions not found in fluff novels.
A page-turning tale of a lowly baker's apprentice discovering his powers. Second in the trilogy.
Pretty good trilogy. Characters and the story line were interesting.
This is the second book in a trilogy. I loved this trilogy. There are knights, magic, good versus evil, war, fights, love, death, betrayals, sworn oaths, a little bit of everything and it all comes together in the end. The little pieces of information and all of the varied characters throughout the story end up being connected in one way or another. I've read this trilogy before and I'm sure to read it again.
This book is so awesome !
The first book was interesting, and I enjoyed the action and suspense, but this second book brought the different story threads together, and made me read till late into the night because I couldn't wait to see what happened.
I don't want to give too many specific because it will ruin the story, but the twists and turns of fate as these story threads come together is great, and I know you'll enjoy this book.
