Product description

Amazon Review

This sequel to The Waterborn doesn't stand alone. Together these two books make a complete adventure; they're exciting, absorbing reading. Hezhi and Perkar cannot easily resolve their respective personal, magical and supernatural problems, and the Blackgod, Karak, has his own plans for them as well. Their battle with the Rivergod is not over and the resulting conflict on every level wracks the princess and her hero, straining their friendship and alliances with everyone. They learn to make decisions, not on impulse, but knowing the costs of their choices and accepting them.

Review

This is a satisfyingly robust, impressive debut (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

The settings are colourful and different, giving this first novel a richness that stands out even in the ranks of works by established writers. (LOCUS)

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. Every now and then Keyes writes a perfect descriptive sentence that I have to copy down. The Blackgod is a great recreational read, but I suggest reading the Waterborn first in order to get a feel for the plot.

Entertaining and delighfully different. Explains why his next books are so good, what an imagination.The plots are clear and as with later greg keyes, got a twist which makes them more enjoyable.

I had purchased this book and it's prequel The Waterborn many years ago in paperback form. I was so happy when it finally came available for Kindle. These 2 books are very well written fantasy novels. Even though I have read them before I could hardly put it down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Faulty Kindle Edition!!! 7 Feb. 2010
By J. S. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This review relates to the Kindle edition specifically. The book itself I might have rated a four, but the Kindle edition had MANY typographical errors throughout the last half as well as what seems to be pages of missing text in the digital version. I was able to power through and decipher the errors ("ufe"=life for expample)because I was interested in what was going to happen. I still enjoyed the book mostly, but the missing text and all the errors made reading this edition not nearly as enjoyable as it could have been.
