Loved it, another cracker by this prodigious Author
on 14 May 2014
Second in the series, which no doubt will eventually contain many books judging by Jonathan Moeller's incredibly high output. Its five years on from events in the prequel. (I wasn’t expecting that). Our Hero, Ridmark Arban, is giving himself a harder time than his enemies and adversaries. He's a religious knight who standards are too high even for himself. While others may have forgiven him, he can’t forgive himself. This results in his taking great risks in the hope he will go down fighting. (Great stuff). The author throws in a few twists and some nice characterisation. It seems to be another start at point A then follow the dotted line to point Z, kind of tale, except Jonathan introduces the hint of a love interest with a woman who is suffering from amnesia, but who suspects she may have a hidden wealth of dangerous knowledge, mainly due to the fact pretty much everyone she meets seems to want to sacrifice here to get that knowledge, if only she could remember what it was. But not our hero, his knightly code means he must forestall anything else on his agenda, like getting himself killed by taking on impossible odds. No, he has to save and then rescue her, while not getting himself killed while taking on impossible odds. It’s a very pacey story with everything you need to keep you entertained. It’s well written, fairly well edited and as always with Mr Moeller the current story ends with many unanswered questions which means I will HAVE to read the next. Great entertainment, which is all I really want out of a fantasy novel.
