There are definitely new tricks to storytelling that I've never encountered with this GREAT series!!! I've plowed through the first two books in less than a month and plan of devouring the third as quick as possible!
So awesome!! Can't wait for the next in the series. the store and the seeker where increadable.
Didn't need to spend 10 hours on jardeers (spelling) history. I hope the series doesn't continue to do this with other characters; telling the same series of events in painstaking detail in someone news perspective.
The narrator did a great job.
this sequel focused heavily on the relationship between characters, it was great seeing what each one felt in their own perspective. however it felt like a little fantasy/erotica during most of it.
the reader and less pauses would have helped
I am the reader is not any better and the repeat of the last of the middle of the book was not needed.
the reader and his pauses were most disappointing
I loved The Warded Man--rushed right through it--but this one is painful. I'm only in Chapter 4 and struggling with all the "creative naming" of everyday items and concepts. I recognize that he's creating a new world but it would be much friendlier (to me) if more of the names of things/demons/concepts, etc., were in "normal" language. This is a chore, rather than enjoyment, but I'm holding on and hoping The Warded Man characters appear sooner, rather than later. Fingers crossed. (Maybe the book would be friendlier if read rather than listened to.)
This book confused me at first. It started with a different perspective involving the first book. The story premise is great, and I enjoy it when the author can focus on the story. But he fills, what I consider the story line, with sexual exploits, which may act as filler, but distracts from the story. Although disappointed in this aspect, of what could be a great fantasy novel.
Having said that, I did purchase this second book after having problems with the first book, and now will purchase the third book given I am trapped into finding out the ending.
Hopefully there will be a conclusion soon.
