As with the first in the series Lloyd has created a fantasy feast of well written characters and a beautifully vivid world full of magic, war and turmoil. Isak as always is a great character, one of my personal favourites in the fantasy genre, he is young, powerful and often times brutal but we still see is vulnerable side when he is with his friends, this makes the main character much more in depth and satisfying to read.
In this story Isak has to comes to terms with the voice of an ancient Elven King inside of his head and the treason of one of his most powerful Lords. As if this is not enough he is forced to send out his army to a small town called Scree were an enormous amount of magic is being used. In this small town all the powers of the lands are represented there, both good and evil, there in this small town we'll see assassinations, demons raised from the pits of hell and awe inspiring battles. Will the be to much for the young Lord Of The Farlan to control? Or will he rise above the expectations of the world?
If you love fast paced with huge battles, politics and everything in between then Lloyd's work a go. You won't be disappointed!
