In The Grim Company, Luke Scull introduced a formidable and forbidding band of anti-heroes battling against ruthless Magelords and monstrous terrors. The adventure continues as the company - now broken - face new dangers on personal quests.
As Davarus Cole and his former companions were quick to discover, the White Lady' s victorious liberation of Dorminia has not resulted in the freedom they once imagined. Anyone perceived as a threat has been seized and imprisoned - or exiled to darker regions - leaving the White Lady's rule unchallenged and absolute. But the White Lady would be wiser not to spurn her former supporters: Eremul the Halfmage has learned of a race of immortals known as the Fade, and if he cannot convince the White Lady of their existence, all of humanity will be in danger.
Far to the north, Brodar Kayne and Jerek the Wolf continue their odyssey to the High Fangs only to find themselves caught in a war between a demon horde and their enemy of old, the Shaman. And in the wondrous city of Thelassa, Sasha must overcome demons of her own.

I am a lover of fantasy novels with exciting action, complex plots, and unforgettable characters.
The Sword of the North was a very good sequel to The Grim Company. Scull did not disappoint in this novel. The only problem was that less happened in this book compared to the first one. This is to be expected though, because this is going to be the middle book of a trilogy. I must say this book sets up a great novel, but I am not sure whether Scull will be able to gather the plot threads together to finish this series properly. I am very excited to see him work his magic. As a whole this book lacked nun of the flare, character development, or writing skill of the first novel. Also, the book was narrated very skillfully, the character voices were well developed and easily distinguishable. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and I look forward to the next installment.
