The story has great, sweeping, epic action scenes that play well visually and reminded me of the Lord of the Rings trilogy of films. There were none of the typical pitfalls of this genre to be found. Typically, fantasy writers get so carried away with the world building they forget to keep the story moving. The author has an innate sense of balance to her writing, that or it has been learned over years of developing her craft. And being this is a second installment in the series, the problem that typically happens there is it’s hard to not go back to book one, page one, to avoid being lost. But I was into this one from the first chapter and had no trouble following along. That said, I will go back and read book one now, just to see what else I missed out on.

Because this is dark fantasy, other things came to mind. I recalled the movie Legend with Tom Cruise back in the day that similarly popped with such vivid characters and action scenes and powerful imagination. And because writers have dominant senses through which they come at the world, much like regular people do, I appreciated the fact that Faw took the time and exercised the discipline to use all five senses, sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound in her storytelling; it helped to make her lavish settings more visceral.

5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta read this series!

Noooooo! Where's the next book??? I have to have! So much is going on and to be left hanging.... OMG, I couldn't put it down once I started because everything was just moving so fast.

I loved the small comic moments like how Cayden hated having a personal guard and how hard they had to work to keep up with him because he practically ran everywhere.

Mordecai still hasn't changed much! Old friends are reappearing and new friends....

You have to read this series! You WON'T be disappointed!

I'm freely giving my review for an ARC of this book, but I bought it, too! I have to have the third book yesterday!
