This review is from: Valour: Book Two of The Faithful and the Fallen (The Faithful and The Fallen Series 2) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed Malice, even though I found it difficult to get into. Valour was a really much better novel, not that Malice was bad but Valour is brilliant.
I really enjoy the short chapters and shifting viewpoints. The characters all have interesting back stories and are well developed. John Gwynne doesn't quite have George R.R. Martin's callous disregard for his characters, but you never really know whether all the characters are going to make it. I was surprised when Kastell was killed off, but in Valour we see Maquin's character and story develop in a gripping way. Maquin is one of my favourite characters and I hope his path eventually crosses Corbans.
I found it very difficult to put this novel down reading on the train, at lunchtime and late into the night.
I hope I don't have to wait too long for Book 3, but I'll definitely be pre-ordering it.
A great book.
