4.0 out of 5 stars Good book. If you've read the first one..., 12 Jan 2006
This review is from: Lord of Lies: Book Two of the Ea Cycle (Paperback)
Although i can see the point that this book is filler material, i does do, at least, a relatively good job standing on its own.
The book itself revolves around Valashu's quest to discover more about the lightstone and what to do with it, whilst trying to confirm to himself if he is the fabled maitreya.
Zindell does a good job throughout in keeping the author in two minds as to Valashu's existence as the maitreya, and the revalation comes in a well orchestrated scene later in the book.
The emotional side explored in this book was fascinating throughout, though some characters were not expanded upon quite enough, mainly Kane, who im sure all readers would've liked to see more of.
Zindell capps the book off with one of the best battle descriptions in modern literature, vividly recreating his vision into words and senteces.
In all the book makes no sense without the first one (The ninth kingdom), but with it expands the plotline to the point zindell could continue to the next book with little hesitation. Definitely a clarification book but will still keep you glued to the pages in anticipation.
