2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a disappointment, 9 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Tower Lord: Book 2 of Raven's Shadow (A Raven's Shadow Novel) (Kindle Edition)
Blood song was the best new book i had read in a long time, the author an obvious talent. I even took the (for me) unheard of step of pre-ordering this one. Unfortunately this book is not in the same league, you get the feeling that the editors have applied the "how to make money out of fantasy" handbook as this almost feels as if it's been written by someone else. The new use of a multi perspective story line involves some fairly 2 dimensional characters, and so many that i kept flicking back through the book to check who i was reading about. The clarity and strength, depth of character and emotion present in book 1 has been lost and the whole book ends up feeling like a filler.. The blatant "buy book 3 to find out what happens next" ending is irritating as i didn't expect it from this author. To be honest another author I may have given 3 stars but the first book was so much better than this you just know this could have been as well. I'll probably get the next one but i won't be in a rush to and will read the reviews first.
