the second step is stronger.
on 2 October 2005
You've read Dawnthief and are thinking about trying the next one? then do it. This is how a series should progress, getting better with each step. I wasn't sure if I should give three stars or four, not because of the quality of this book but the quality of the rest of the series, I might run out of stars.
This follow directly on from dawnthief, obviously after that ending. It is mostly more of the same but better execution. However whereas dawnthief followed the raven and showed glimpses of other characters and events, here the author paints a bigger picture. this does slow the pace in some ways, but it strengthens the whole.
