5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fast paced fantasy, 23 April 2008
By 
This review is from: The Burning Man: Kingdom of the Serpent: Book 2: Burning Man Bk. 2 (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
This is the second book in the Kingdom of the Serpent trilogy which started with Jack of Ravens. Where the first book was a meander through history, this is a flat out gallop around the world. It picks up where the first book ends and the synopsis above covers enough of the plot. It is, as I've come to expect from Chadbourn, very well researched with detailed settings from around our world and mythology from all cultures brought to life. The pace never really lets up and you get a real sense of urgency for the characters and their tasks. They continue to be very human, flawed and showing plenty of real emotions. Certainly not your stereotypical heroes. This is dark urban fantasy at its very best, with a good dose of dry humour in the right places. The trilogy follows on from his other two: the Age of Misrule and the Dark Age. While you don't have to have read them first to enjoy this book, I think you'd get a much richer reading experience as they provide the back stories to all the characters and the setting. If you have read them, you won't be disappointed.
Can't wait for the final installment
