Product Description

Product Description

Volume Four of the Norothian Cycle. (#1 The Sable City, #2 Death of a Kingdom, #3 The Wind from Miilark)

Princess Allison of Beoshore undertakes a mission to the Daulic city known as Devil Town since its occupation by infernal forces. The diabolic decision she is forced to make there may compromise herself, her friends, and the entire Empire of the Code.

John Deskata and Nesha-tari struggle for control of the peninsulas of the central Norothian Channel, where the governments of Ayzantium and Martas have collapsed.

Tilda Lanai returns to the Underway with a trio of old friends, carrying two warrants authorized by the Codian Empire. One of Arrest, and one of Death. It will fall to Tilda to decide which is delivered.

Reading the series and its a good read, slight addictive in an odd way. However, sometimes it is a bit too wordy and slow, but as the story is gripping its not too bad to take.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devilishly Good 9 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again, M Ed McNally has come up trumps with Devil Town, the fourth book in his Norothian Cycle series, and a worthy addition to the fold.

As I contemplate this review, it's hard to decide what to say that doesn't carry the risk of revealing spoilers. If you've been following the series, then you are familiar with the adventures of Tilda Lanai and the gang, and book four will not be found wanting. If you're not, then all I can say is get the first three books and dive in. You won't be disappointed by this excellent 'magic and muskets' fantasy series, and either way Devil Town is a characterful and gripping volume.

What I will say is that Devil Town has something of a change of pace compared to the preceding books, as the political situation in war-torn Noroth and its neighbouring nations shift and change; war has brought about much instability, shifting allegiances, and dangerous new developments as kingdoms fall and new factions emerge from the ruins. And over all this, there is the looming shadow of a deeper, more terrible darkness to come. The plot thickens.

The nearest metaphor that comes to mind is a chessboard: the pieces are being moved into position ready for a showdown, but Devil Town plays its pieces in such a way that it intrigues without hinting at the coming strategies. In that respect, it feels a little slower than the previous instalments in the series, but that's not to suggest Devil Town is actually slower, or lacking in action. It isn't and it's packed with action, as the major players seek to just get on with their lives but once again find themselves swept up in events. This is the calm before the storm. Almost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, all the characters I love are back 19 Sep 2013
By Kara K. Prem - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Devil Town was not just focused on one small group of characters, but devoted time to all the original characters from the first book in the Norothian Cycle. There was even a certain trouble making devil lord "helping" Princess Allison. John the Red and Nesha-tari are still waging thier wars, and this seems to be setting up the plot for the 5th book. Claudja continues to show that she is not just a gentle noble woman, but has ambition, and a shrewd mind for taking care of business.

Most of all, there was a lot of Tilda and Zed, and then Tilda with Amatesu and Shikashe taking care of a traitor in the mountains. My thoughts don't do the book justice, it was a great read, and I cannot wait to start on book 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars complex charactors, involved plots and twists. 21 Aug 2013
By Kurt B. Benson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the fourth book in the Norothian cycle, there are more side plots, supporting characters, and character development as the greater and lesser dragons plot in the background. And while we never actually see the move and counter move of the Dragon's game we get some idea from their pawns as they vie for position. very different series as the "bad guys" and the "good guys" and even the archtypes are never quite what you expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the Characters We Love 12 Aug 2013
By Stephanie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
DEVIL TOWN continues the saga of nine adventurers who entered the Sable City in book #1. Tilda, now a successful merchant, longs for adventure, while Claudja becomes close to the Codian emperor. Nesha-tari embarks on conquest while the former John Deskata, now John the Red, throws in his lot with a band of upstart dragons. As in previous books of the series, DEVIL TOWN features thrilling fight sequences, humor, and likable protagonists who are easy to root for, as well as a villain (well-dressed devil Balan) who is fun to hate. The author's world-building is astonishing and his command of military details is superior to anything I've read in a fantasy series. I'm already reading book #5 and suspect I'll soon be impatient for book #6.
