A lot of plots running in this one each character unique in their own way.
Thankfully not as the sixth book, The Prison of Angels maintains the high standards of the series so far and with the promise of at least two further books to come, its all good news.
The story starts five years after the death of the war god Thulos, King Antonil masses an army of thirty thousand men and with steel determination sets out to win back his home city Veldaren. Nicknamed the missing king after a failed first attempt Antonil must win the respect of his people as their mounting disapproval threatens disruption and rebellion.
The angels now watch over Mordeina, times should be peaceful but the people complain about the angels justice. Close to rioting, incited by the Queens brother who wants a different type of justice, death for all who bring death and no freedom for any murderer.
A meeting between the angels and the representatives of the people takes place. They want the blood of the forgiven and Qurrah was the first to be judged by the angels, given life, forgiven for his sins. The angels capitulate to man's law and start to revisit all crimes that deserved the ultimate retribution of death
In the kings absence Harruq is appointed regent, a role he as a warrior is entirely unprepared for and despises but must do his utmost to show a strong leadership. Aurelia is attacked by three highly trained magical assassins, who will make the first attempt on the throne.
Jessilynn is a Paladin in training, under the tutelage of the Elf scoutmaster Diereden, on patrol they come across a mass uprising of the creatures of the Vile Wedge.Read more ›
Would recommend to anyone who read and enjoyed the other books in the series.
I'd recommend this book (and series) to anyone who's read Brent Weeks Night Angel trilogy and similar.
Can't wait for the next book by David!
I've got to say, this book, I get the feeling it was largely written to kill off quite a few of the characters.
I felt that the way in which Antonil behaved was unrealistic considering previous books, he acted more like the king he replaced. The notion that some one would walk 35,000 men in to an area with out any prior planning/investiation (considering he could have called on the elves to do some recon before hand). The queen who's wise enough to run a country, yet can't see that she's being manipulated by the brother.
To be honest, the whole premise of many of the story lines was just poor.
Hopefully book 7 will get back on track.
