I absolutely loved this tale, the story continues from the last book with the hunter traveling north toward Malandria once again he meets a myriad of characters for you to love and hate and sometimes both as the hunter tries to find out the truth about his past. Making friends and battling many foes along the way the hunters journey is full of action, heart stopping moments and heart wrenching scenes as the hunter battles not only those who try to stop him but also his own inner demons.
Please I urge you if you have not yet, pick up this series and join the hunter on his journey and I promise you will be swept up in this world as much as I have and journey the visually stunning world, painted in words with such clarity.
I can only applaud you Andy on an amazing read and I can't wait for the next instalment of my all time favourite anti hero.
We continue to follow the Hunter on his arduous journey to uncover more of his lost heritage. Having suffered great losses, the Hunter takes more risks, trusting that human-kind will see the good in him. Andy Peloquin is the master of tension building. He creates intelligent, striking characters, with the ability to see the light through the darkness. A terrific read, with themes of betrayal and justice ground into its heart.
Will the fabled Hunter prevail against the hidden forces lying in wait? Give The Lament of the Fallen a read, and find out.
He knows what he is now – half human, half demon – but refuses to be ruled by the insistent demonic voice inside his head that he can never escape, or by the bloodthirsty dagger that feeds his lifeforce, making him immortal.
When he falls in with a pair of travellers, he has no idea they are demon hunters, but his selfless action in saving them from brigands reveals his true nature. Poisoned, stabbed, thrown in a deep chasm, and separated from Soulhunger, his former travelling companions believe him dead. But the Hunter is hard to kill...
Following straight on from the first volume – Blade of the Destroyer – this story puts the Hunter almost immediately on the back foot, struggling both with his inner demon and with a body no longer invulnerable to harm. While the start was a little slow – the understandable inner conflict and indecision caused by his unfamiliar situation carried on just a tad too long for me before a story began to emerge – but once the action started, I was drawn along, eager to know how the Hunter survived, and how he was going to recover Soulhunger to reclaim his fast-healing immortality.
It was a great move, stripping the Hunter of his physical prowess, focussing more on his struggle to survive like an ordinary human being, slinking around a city he doesn’t know, pitted against zealots he can no longer guarantee to outfight, and teaming up with a madman who nevertheless has hidden talents. And then there are the ghosts – the fallen - the souls of all those murdered innocents. Are they really there, or aren’t they? They certainly plague the Hunter, appealing to his developing sense of justice.Read more ›
