Publisher's Summary

With the publication of his first novel, The Hound of Rowan, Henry H. Neff won a huge readership eager for more of his wildly imagined fantasy series.

In this riveting sequel, Neff expands on the world of his first novel and pens a work of even greater scope and complexity. When evil forces conspire to wield the Book of Toth, chaos breaks out - leaving the only hope for the future in the hands of the Rowan Academy's Max McDaniels and his trusted friend David Menlo.

Dissapointed but not disgusted

The main character is a bit of Mary Sue, with everything coming easy to him and in spades. This doesn't mean that he doesn't face hardship, but that it pushes a bit farther than my imagination could allow. Main character is mentally and emotionally a child, but towards the end feels more like an adult. I consider that perhaps a time jump between the first and second book would have been more appropriate for the story.

too violent

first book was much better. this book had a bit too much killing and mutilation for my taste. enjoyed the first book. just wish this book had stayed closer to the action of the first book.

Gets REALLY Interesting

The first book drew from Harry Potter. That's a no brainer. This one though almost immediately gets *really* interesting and continues to be so. If you want Harry Potter and nothing else, just reread the first because this is no longer Potter. It might even be better. I know, I WENT there, but it deserves it. It was the most enjoyable listen I've had in ages. I hope you buy it. I know you'll like it. That is all.

Better than the norm. Most fiction is real blahhh.

Henry H. Neff is good. Really good. Audio is superb. Not the conventional warehouse junk nowadays that keeps getting vomited onto store shelves. This series definitely is more deserving of 5-star reviews and buys.

A good follow up

This is a good book, it follows on well from the end of the first book and you get to find out a bit more about the background of the main characters. For me it wasn't quite as good as the first book and you need to concentrate a little harder on it. Still I'd recommend getting it if you liked the first book.
