This review is from: Prince of Dogs (Crown of Stars, Book 2) (Paperback)
This book deepens our knowledge of the main characters such as Liath and expands on the plot greatly. However, even more unaswered questions are raised which leaves us hoping the next installment will bring us some information about various mysterious events that happen in dreams and suchlike. It is quite hard to grasp the many different storylines of the many characters, and try and piece them all together to guess where the plot is going. Still, I was kept interested in most places- the problem with Elliott's writing is that she launches into huge detail about battle scenes, scenery etc. which makes the story hard to focus on. It may be wise to indulge in a bit of skim reading in the more longwinded places. The thing that stops you putting the book down in frustration are the bits where an event occurs and suddenly a few questions are answered and the plot races down whole new path! For those wonderful places, which are actually not too thinly spread, I really recommend continuing the series with this book, just remember to skim when you're bored!
