    "Enjoying read"

    Great weave of characters and very engaging story. The author expertise in armor and medieval weaponry is evident. Looking forward to number three this July.

    In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something

    "This series must be read in order 2b understood"

    I guess I got this book before the 1st book in the series and this may have contributed to my dislike of it. The narrator is fantastic. The many characters have their own style and voice which was awesome. But half the book I spent, thinking what are they referring to? I had no ideal without getting the 1st book, first. My bad.

    "Great book!"

    This sequel did not disappoint! The only problem I had was the story would sometimes make large leaps forward in time that would take just a few moments to realize what was going on.

    If you could sum up The Fell Sword in three words, what would they be?

    Miles, write faster!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No crying, some laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    The magic system and the mixed historical world view are very interesting.

    "Watch Out GRRM!! Great Protagonist & Not Dead, Yet"

    This is an excellent 2nd book to continue 'The Traitor Son Cycle' series after the solo debut novel "The Red Knight.' Anyone whose wondering why the story received 4 stars while the overall was given 5? The only real issue I had with this book was that small parts could be predictable at times BUT besides GRRM who could potentially rip your heart out while reading the 'GoT' series. It seems GRRM loves taking a character you love & believed was one of a handful of protagonists dies quite viciously similar to humans swatting flies lol.

    Fantasy books no matter the caliber of author all tend to have a degree of predictability, certain tropes, & characters that fall into similar categories. Cameron is able to write an incredible story containing an assortment of commonly used fantasy pieces often spread between separate books & authors, but able to incorporate a cohesive tale so far in 2 books of the series. The complex themes & persona's include: medieval themes, knights, archers, beautiful princesses, mages/warlocks, clerics, weapons containing magical properties, all sorts of kick-ass, monsters such as dragons-wyverns-giants-golden bears-fairies-demons even gods, court intrigue containing the backstabbing & conspiracies that absolute power attracts, plus a few unknown powers that have not entirely been revealed.

    The magical system structure is well thought out & those who possess this ability perpetuate both power & destruction within the real world while in the 'ethereal' plane they manipulate diff. types of energy/mana against each other similar to a game of chess. Those with faith can heal thru the gift of worshiped deity's & above them all are the unique class of warrior, both having prowess in hand to hand combat & casting of magic power. This sequel was at the same level of entertainment value as 'The Red Knight' IMO & perhaps even better due an overall picture of this world familiar in histories yet unique in regards to custom & universal laws.

    I would HIGHLY suggest spending a credit & read the next installment of this captivating book that bludgeons you back to "hardcore" fantasy woven tales. Narration is above average, I could find little to complain about that doesn't occur at a point in all novels of this genre. Miles Cameron made me forget about GRRM's slow progress & along with other 2014 releases to come I see a great year to come.

    Story
    "not quite a sophomore slump"

    Let me start by saying that this was not a bad novel, it just wasn't as good as the first one. Most of the novel was very intriguing with a strong if not slightly scattered plot. The problem was the end for me, it just seemed rather anticlimactic. It was too simple and predictable with no really impressive twists. Also, after the weak climax the ending of the novel was rather abrupt and left a few threads hanging. On the strong side it looks like everything is set for a great third novel and I am very excited to read it. AS with the first novel the descriptions of the midevil life were superb and the character development was also well done. What really disappointed me about this performance was the narrator. He changed several pronunciations he used in the first novel, whitch was very jarring. Also, some of his voices were different from the first novel, whitch confused me for a bit. Despite my complaints about this book it was still very good, but not the great series starter the first book was. I am still very excited for the next installment.

    "very enjoyable can't wait for the next instalment."

    Fell Sword was well written and a great next addition to the red night. Enjoyed the writing, great action and battle sequences. The action sequences are not over done at all with the perfect level of detail. The character development in this book was excalent, and maybe a little excessive for one book. This book felt a little like a filler in preperation for the next book. Including storylines that were vague, and a little confusing at times. all and all a great read and a Necessity for what I hope continues to be an epic saga. I Can't wait for the next book.

    "Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the first book but this installment just seemed like it was all filler and just plain boring. I made it almost 2/3's the way through but could not finish.

    I do not know that I ever made it that far in a book without finishing but since I will not be buying the next in the series, it did not make sense to continue on.

    I like Miles Cameron's writing but this book just did not work for me at all. Very disappointing.
