    "Falls Short of the First Book"

    The first book in this series was captivating with its setting and plot in a word that felt fresh and new. The second book unfortunately loses that sense of grandeur in lieu of telling a simple quest story. Disappointingly the whole book is a quest to heal one of the main characters of a mental illness he received in the first book.

    A lot of this book is an endless series of the characters getting captured at various stages of their journey, then getting saved by some new character that pops up with some new agenda. The characters rarely think things through or prepare, rushing headlong into situations and trusting the wrong people. The main character wakes up over and over again in darkness, trapped in either some mental or physical prison, and trying to escape. It makes the novel very difficult to follow.

    The other subplot of the book revolves around the question of whether the war forged are people or machines, similar to the plots of countless sci fi books about androids ever since Asimov. This book doesn't really add anything new.

    Overall a frustrating book, as it falls far short of the standard set by the first volume.
