The War God's Own: War God, Book 2 | [David Weber]

The War God's Own: War God, Book 2

Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion.

Publisher's Summary

Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems.

For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion. And if he survived that, he had to get home somehow, in spite of the enemies determined to stop him, to face the Dark God who had sworn to destroy all hradani. But one thing Bahzell had learned: a champion of the War God Tomanak does what needs to be done. And those who got in his way had better watch out.

    "Paladin in action"

    Once I started the first book, I ended up getting the second immediately, and I am planning on getting the third book soon. Like this first book it is also a fast paced book.

    It is very enjoyable audio book that style of narration matches with the story very well, and over all it is a lot of fun to listen to this book.

    Our barbarian Paladin is introduced officially to the rest of its deity's order, and things become interesting. Book has a very good narrative about the prejudices and bigotry though sometimes it is repetitive.

    Couple of characters introduced in book are amusing and sense of humor does work within this book as well. It is pretty much a continuation of first book without any breaks and I recommend this book as well that these books are solid 4 star books. Very enjoyable.

    "If you liked the first book, you'll like this one"

    This is a strong continuation of the series. I find Nick Sullivan's reading of these books to be superb, really increasing my enjoyment of the scenes. This series is one of the most enjoyable series I have listened to, and I would strongly recommend it for anyone who just wants to listen to entertaining fluff.

    "Not just a sequal."

    This second book works well as a sequal, or as a stand alone story; it's actually better than the first book, becuase the characters are established; so the author needs do no more than remind the reader about who's who, instead of spending a lot of time establishing the players. The reader, as always, is excellent.

    "# 2 Good and I want more."

    I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) If you want to know more about what I think, check out the review for War Maids Choice. Thank you.

    "Fantastic!!!"

    I don't normally get emotionally involved in books but this one got me.
    I cheered for the good guys and hated the villains!
    Great read. I couldn't stop listening to it!

    "More Character Development than Action"

    This book did not have near as much action in it as the first one but was still a good read if you are invested in the series. You learn more about the different races, their history and how it affects the interaction of the races that was left a little lacking from the first novel.

    Nick Sullivan's narration, as the first, was top notch.

    Story
    "One of the best sword and sorcery tales around."

    David Weber is one of my absolute favorite authors and this series is an example why.

    This is a great story made truly outstanding by the fantastic narration by Nick Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan goes beyond mere narration into voice acting, going so far as to use different geographical accents for characters from different parts of the story's world. This extra touch makes the story come to life for me.

    "Fun book with great narration"

    I have really enjoyed all the stories in this series. They are relatively light reading - unlike some sf/fantasy books (for example Modesitt), there are not significant underlying ethical or moral commentary. However, they are great tales about people choosing to fight against evil in a well developed world. The author does not leave strands of unanswered questions, though each book sets up the next.
    What makes these books great is the narration. the narrator's voice are distinct, the pacing great, and the emphasis is all in the right places. Master story telling.
