It was a bit of jolt to change narrators from book one to book two, but I love the Lightbringer Series. There is massive character development in this book, although the books stand alone well, you are best served listening in order. A cliffhanger until the end, I can't wait to start book three!
After not being able to finish book 1 in the series, due to the atrocious narator choice, I took a chance on book 2. They changed the series narrator and it's for the better. Simon Vance does a great job bringing the world to life. The magic system is easy enough to understand even after missing most of the first book.
You can tell Weeks did a lot of research while writing the book and Weeks tells us as much in a nice behind the scenes type of PostScript.
I won't give anything away and I'll keep this short. Nice character development, a plot that isn't boring and well written action scenes about sums it up. There's also a fair amount of witty banter as well. I like it enough that, after finishing, I went right back to Audible and downloaded book 3. Looking forward to more Mr. Weeks!
If you take out all the training with Kip (which is fun and enjoyable) I'm not sure anything is actually happening. I'm still up in the air about Karris, Gavin/Dezon is either Horny or trying to destroy gods with his ailing powers, Ironfist goes atheist, Tia is cool I guess but she hasn't played a big role yet, and the real Gavin keeps escaping prison just to be shot. Why was he even in the book to begin with!!!!!! The only true important thing in this book is the cards...and more importantly the part where Kip runs down the cards one by one. Lot of foreseeing going on there. Other than that, not a lot happens.
The only interesting character so far (other than Kip) is Andross, and we hate him. And I'm pretty sure 9 kings would be fun to play.
Well, I was a little confused at the start of it. but Simon Vance has a way of giving the character in the story a personality.
Kepp was the best in my opinion, it makes me want to read more of the story.
When Kepp was in school.
