"The Color of Vengeance is not simply a revenge saga, no more than The Lies of Locke Lamora is simply a story of thieves. It's much more than that and one of the best fantasy books I've read." (Fantasy Book Critic)
"I think Rob J. Hayes is the next fantastic Brit addition to the field of dark, gritty fantasy and another Indie gem after last year's Anthony Ryan." (Mihir Wanchoo, Fantasy Book Critic)
Fantastic sequel to the Heresy Within. At first I was a bit leery because Thanquil and Jezzet, the main heroes in the first book, are noticeably absent. Instead, this installment focuses primarily of the least likable hero, the Black Thorn.
After a horrible maiming, Betrim escapes his captors and returns to the Wilds to avenge himself and his friends that he believes dead. Along the way, he hooks back up with some of his old crew from the first book as well as a drunken nobleman named Anders, who is seriously enjoyable. Meanwhile, a frighteningly badass Arbiter has been dispatched to kill the Black Thorn.
However, even with the loss of my two favorite heroes from Book 1, The Color of Vengeance ended up being even better than the first. We meet many new and interesting characters as well as expand on old ones.
I look forward to Book 3.
