HASH(0x9f33ed2c) out of 5 stars The Four - At It Again! 20 Sept. 2013
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
After finishing Shadow's Rise I was eager to see what was next for this magical yet comical foursome. Author Bailey did not disappoint!

Descent had all the beautiful imagery, imaginative fantasy, and witty banter of Rise with an added cast of fascinating characters and a new level of edge-of-your-seat action/combat. I particularly enjoyed the four's time in Tellanon - immersing myself in the wonders of the truly other-worldly city and getting to know each member of the Home Gaurd and their supernatural talents through their extensive training aboard the Shrike. Llyewia and Spreesprocket join Slate in my growing list of favorite characters.

Cannot wait to read what happens to the gang in the trilogy's conclusion!

HASH(0x9f33ee7c) out of 5 stars A continuing romp through the realms of Ea'ae 24 July 2013
By NCBrit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Shadow's Descent builds well on the first book with increased interplay between the characters. The varied personalities of the "Four" provides a flow of enlightening dialogue that provides increased depth into their drives and binds them together as a team. Book 2 diversifies in the studies of the different aspects of 'magic' and explores the differences and similarities between the various arts performed, both light and dark. An entertaining read that leaves you wanting for the conclusion of the final book.
HASH(0x9f327b28) out of 5 stars Superb Continuation 20 Jun. 2013
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Picking up where Shadow's Rise ended, Shadow's Descent provided a very engaging story with descriptive narrative, unique magic systems and comedic relief scattered throughout.

I enjoyed that the author created novel races, cultures and concepts for the series. An example of this creativity was the use of pocket dimensions. How amazing would it be if a pocket dimenstion park system such as that found in Tellanon were a reality!

I thought this was an excellent continuation of the story and left me ready to read the last book in the series.
HASH(0x9f025054) out of 5 stars A Fun Adventure! 10 Mar. 2013
By Susan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Don't Miss the second book of the Chronicles of the Fists "Shadows Descent". You will find
yourself engrossed in this vivid adventure depicting the challenges as the Four battle against the Cabal.
The storyline becomes even more magically portrayed with new characters joining the quest in Good
versus Evil. The banter between Wrin and Slate is astoundingly funny. How can you go wrong with a
Drawf (Slate) tossing himself over to another ship to save the day? I can't wait to read the final chapter
of this Trilogy.
HASH(0x9f025270) out of 5 stars This did not disappoint! Even better than its predecessor 14 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To sum it up. This did not disappoint! Even better than its predecessor, more feinds, more darkness, more hero's and more Light. I haven't found a series worth "binge reading" since my last M. Ploof series! If you weren't sure you liked the first one, be SURE you will LOVE this, that was just the beginning of a fantastic adventure with many many layers, and this will take you to place seldom seen or thought about. Imagination blown wide open!
