In this sequel to Dark Lord, we return to the world of Falconfar, to find the Dooms of Falconfar locked in a life-and-death struggle. There are plots within plots, and as the Dooms struggle, they are tearing the world apart. And Rod Everlar, the erstwhile fantasy author, he still traverses Falconfar in his quest to find Taeauna, the wingless Aumrarr with whom he has fallen in love. Rod Everlar is determined to rescue Taeauna...if he can stay alive long enough to do it!
Overall, I must say that I enjoyed this book as much as I did the Dark Lord. I like the world of Falconfar, and I liked the nonstop action of the story that moves from crisis to crisis with virtually no letup. Just like in the first book, the sexuality of the story is disturbing and unnecessary - not interesting in an erotic way, and frankly off-putting. Also, another problem with this book is that, being the second book in a series, it has no real beginning and no real end. Some authors succeed in making each book in a series a complete stand-alone story, but sadly Mr. Greenwood did not do that with Arch Wizard.
But, nonetheless, I had a lot of fun with this book, and can't wait to get on to the third (and final?) book of the series. I like a fantasy story with lots of magic and swordplay and daring do, and I got plenty of each with this book. Not everyone likes this story, but I know that I do!
