Product Description

Review

A break-out book for Kate Elliott . . . What really counts are her characters. Well-drawn and vivid, they come alive as both people from a very foreign place and people we care about. They keep the plot moving irresistibly forward and draw us into her work. The book is solid, exciting and engrossing - a grand and powerful piece of writing (Katharine Kerr)

The first book in what promises to be a gripping and enthralling fantasy epic (The TIMES)

Book Description

Volume two of Crown of Stars, a richly realised epic fantasy from one of the genre's shining new lights

Format: 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!

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed King's Dragon I looked forward eagerly to this sequel and was not disappointed. The richly textured world introduced in King's Dragon is a subtle and well structured background for the many excellently well drawn, interesting and believable characters. The spare and elegant style is a pleasure to read with no annoying anachronisms. The main characters continue to develop and are never boringly stereoptyped or obvious although they fulfil all the requirements for heroic fantasy. Haunted Liath struggling to control her dangerous magical abilities while evading the machinations of the beautiful and psycopathic Hugh contrasts with compassionate, sensible Alain. The pragmatic King Henry and calculating Lavastine are perfect foils for their sons, the courageous and passionate Sanglant and Alain. The savagely intelligent Eika prince is fascinating and Hanna, Rosvita, Ivor and a host of other minor characters are drawn as surely interestingly and convincingly as the major players in an exciting historical fantasy that compares well in depth and variety with Silverburg's Majipoor and is as colourful and exciting as Guy Gavriel Kay's Fionovar.
The plots and subplots are subtly interwoven and convincing and the only criticism I have is that the book doesnt't stand alone but needs the first and third volumes. I need the third volume! More please and thanks to Ms Elliot for a brilliant read.

This book was just as good as the first one, and equally as descriptive. It stimulated emotion in no way any other seris of books has. It has no element of "sequel letdown" and I was surprised. I read it in the time it took to get from London to Salisbury and back! Recommended!

By Book Gannet TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 May 2001
Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing book by a very talented author, and I could not put it down. The way she describes Laith's battles with herself as well as Hugh draw the reader in to her story. Her description of Sanglant's struggles against the evil Bloodheart make the reader almost incapable of putting this book down. Such a shame that I had to eventually finish it.

Another great read from a fantastic series. If you enjoyed 'King's Dragon' you have to read this book.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Sept. 2007
Format: Paperback
Prince of Dogs picks up shortly after the first book ends. The Battle of Kassel has seen the defeat of Sabella's rebellion. Alain has been proclaimed heir to Count Lavastine, and now learns the way of rulership. Liath is now a King's Eagle, a trusted messenger, but her heart is torn by the death of Prince Sanglant in the Fall of Gent to the Eika. With King Henry's army badly mauled at Kassel, he has to entrust another to create a force and retake Gent. However, Prince Sanglant yet lives as the captive and plaything of the Eika warlord, Bloodheart, and Bloodheart's fifth son, who has forged an unusual connection with Alain, must return to the Eika homeland to raise a new force, but plots against his father along the way. Finally, rumblings come from the east that after a lengthy period of quiet, the Quman tribes of the marchlands are once again raiding and causing trouble.

Prince of Dogs sees the smaller story that was contained within King's Dragon explode outwards in all directions, with the addition of several new POV characters including the captive Prince Sanglant and Anna, a young girl who escapes the Fall of Gent with her brother to face an uncertain future in a refugee camp, whilst Biscop Antonia, a key villain in the first book, also has a few POV cameos. The political intrigue of the book is ramped up following the events of the first volume, as is the action quotient as the Eika's ravaging of the countryside around Gent is described, along with the campaign to retake the city. There is also a nice convergence of plotlines, as Alain and Liath meet for the first time and Rosvita moves more towards opposing the villainous and increasingly influential Hugh.

The second installment in kate elliots doorstop saga is as worthy as the first.
It features much more on liath than it does on alain, which is slightly disappointing but it makes sense as she has more to do in this one, in fact alains role though significant is quite small.
If you liked the first get this.
