The second book in a trilogy is often the low point, the place where the characters and their situations are the most bleak and troubled. This book is no exception. Lawhead successfully took the tensions that were building at the end of The Paradise War and brought them on in full force, starting with the opening pages of The Silver Hand.

In this book, the plot quickens and deepens and leads the characters, both new and old, both the same and yet distinctly changed, into more dark and difficult adventures. This is the installment in the series where many battles are won and lost, kings are made and unmade, cities are built and destroyed, history is both written and erased.

This book is told from the first-person perspective of the bard Tegid Tathal, and to hear this amazing tale in his own words enriches the story immensely. I enjoyed the Paradise War but I enjoyed this book even better. Lawhead has created an amazing world and this second book is a worthy addition.

I and my friend have both read this book. We both thought that the content was excellent, and that the writing style was suburb for the content. It is defiantly a book for more advanced readers, but still a spectacular book.
