Good book

Despite what some have said...this book is not bad at all. I've read some people complained about sexual encounters in this book. I found there to be very few. Overall, the book was just as enjoyable as the first one was. I plan to keep going in this series.

a good read

I read other reviews and it almost made me not purchase this book. after reading this book, I was very pleased to find out all the over exaggeration put into the previous reviews. I loved the characters. the story, however, did seem to have some gaps that was kind of "cut to the chase".

Book 1 so much better

I love the book 1 comma as a teacher I always listen to books prior to introducing them in the classroom unfortunately after listening to go to with the profanity it is unable to be used with middle schoolers. the book is pretty good with the exception of the profanity which is so unnecessary

Dudes are Dudes even in Fantasy Novels!

This was an awesome book two. It showed me that even writers understand that guys will be guys no matter the environment or circumstance. Whether friend or rival. The interactions of the male and female characters feels very realistic to me, and that added to the storytelling aspects.

Great story. I look forward to Book 3.

Yeah!!! Grown up Fantasy

it was nice to see Mr. Anderson tackle high fantasy with a mature audience in mind.. i look at all these reviews and see half the crowd taking about there being too much sex in the book like its some smutty romance novel, there were four sexual situations in the whole story and none of them were very explicit or particularly long., such a tiresome and doll complaint for a truly good fantasy novel and I'm pretty sure a lot of young adults are sexually active anyway! so when i see comments like not young adult i think people really mean not for children and i would hope not when the series backdrop is set in a world at war and is pretty damn violent.

what makes a good fiction novel is knowing what your reading is not real but having it grounded in realistic situations.It's even more important in epic fantasy and this story mixes some ugly truths of life in very well, giving it a lot more substance the Author tackles hard subjects in a tasteful way by implying atrocities like genocide and rape making his villainous characters even more repugnant but not making me squirm through the gritter bits...

great story, great narration ...five stars all around...The Godling Chronicles were okay but this series has made me a fan, cant wait for the next installment!

Adultish fantasy

I don't understand what everyone is saying about too much sex. There's only one time anyone actually has sex and there is zero description of it. There is a bit of grinding and people getting turned on but I'm not one that enjoys that kind of thing (didn't like game of thrones) and it didn't really bother me with what was here. That being said I thought it was a good story. It's a little formula, which is to say highly predictable. It follows basic fantasy novel archetypes but overall the characters are interesting and the storytelling is well done.

Love triangles

Love triangles are the bane and butter of fictional writing the world over. Normally, I would not mind a love triangle. I would muddle through the author's attempt to create a tense romantic atmosphere of budding love and trying ot decide if it was 'meant to be'. The problem with that is that this story has none of that. The protagonist is smitten with a girl that he just met. Another girl who is at the edge of minor is very smitten with him. And the girl I mentioned first sleeps with him out of the blue, and then makes him forget it. The uncovering of this technical rape is revealed about a half-dozen chapters later with bizarre emotional reactions. It just made everything so akward, and it pulled me completely out of the story. I was looking forward to how this series would develop. I was looking forward to seeing with the space faring dwarves would do in the end. But a poorly developed and forced love triangle is something I do not want any part of.

Let me say

Ok loved first book and lived I could share it with my grandson who is 10. However, as awesome as the continuation is I can't help but be sadden that now it is riddled with strong language and sexual content. Derek Perkins, is beyond amazing bringing each and every character to life. He is perfect absolutely perfect for this book series. His voices are wide ranged and remarkably all different. Will continue with the series just disappointed it's now more adult the just a wonderful adventure.

Continues to get better.

This book continues to build on book 1 and bring the story along. It is a very good fantacey, I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book. I now will add Mr Anderrson to my must read authors. If you like the description of this book you must listen to book 1 first.

Enjoyable listen

Have you listened to any of Derek Perkins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Only heard him in Dragonvein Book one - he was pretty good in both but I found his American accents not quite up to his other characters.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this and book one but thought that book three was going to be the end of the series. Now I realise there are others to come so will probably stop here. Bit fed up with fantasy writers who seem to think that endless series are a good idea.

A Must for Fans of Fantasy!

This series is excellent, and so very addictive. I had book 3 all ready to go before I even finished book 2. If you're a fan of the fantasy genre this is a must.
