It's just an excellent story, with vivid and interesting characters.
I'm not sure what the tag line would be, but this series would make a great movie franchise!
the desert spear sets the stage nicely for the next book. However this one is not as action packed as it's predecessor so it ends with more to be desired
Peter Brett masterfully paints an alternate existence in Book 2 of the Demon Cycle series. I hope it isn't the last. There were months between reading The Warded Man and this book, so it took a while to reacquaint myself to the storyline. Peter Brett included just enough backstory, tho', and once pulled in I was hopelessly committed. Also, Pete Bradbury was a perfect match for the narrator. The series is definitely worth the time and credits.
Brett has outdone himself!!! After the Warded Man, I absolutely HATED a certain character. This book showing how and why he was betrayer made me not only like him but also to respect him! Well played Mr. Brett, well played!!!!
Thank you Peter Brett for another wonderful literary fantasy Adventure. I really love the way each character has evolved throughout the last two books. I feel that I know and am more invested in what happens to these characters better than any I've read before. I can't wait to find out what happens next.
I did not really need a recap of the last book, even though it explained certain characters better. I do like the growth of the characters and the twists and turns taken throughout the story.
The way the author builds characters makes it feel like they are making choices themselves, and not just unravelling a plot. Don't listen if you aren't willing to buy the next one too!
