I did not know how this series is going to continue after the ending of the first book. I thought it would be with a different caste of characters set in the same world or simply a different time period but I think what Daniel did here was smart. It is tricky to review a book of someone whose literal job is reviewing books and I think some of the readers are being over-critical of the book for that reason. The book did not blow me away but I think it is a well done job for someone who is doing all the work himself (aka self publishing).

I have to criticize the cover art though because I think book one’s cover is way better and this one looks kind of meh in comparison. But as they say let’s not judge the book by its cover. I am not crazy about the writing but I did not have problems with it. For me it is just one of those simple writing styles that don’t stick and are not very unique. I agree that a bit more editing could have been useful but overall, I think it is well written without glaring problems.

Now the story is interesting because we know some of it and we look at it from a different angle. Some of the answers are provided and yet new mysteries arise. I like the Godly creatures and their powers and I want to know more about them in the upcoming books. There is a focus on more politics with this one but I did not have a problem with that.

The pace is alright, it is a novella at the end of the day so I would expect a faster pacing which was present here and I think the length was appropriate for the story being told.

Summary: I enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed the first one. I think it has good balance between the writing, characters and the story line and I know it has the potential to be better which I am looking for. Novellas are always tricky because there are limitations on everything but I think Daniel did a good job with this one and I am looking forward for the third novel!

  1. I agree with the cover. The second book’s cover isn’t really something that you’d see and say, “Oh, I want to read this book.”

    I have been putting reading this book and now that you’ve given it a rating, I think I’m going to squeeze it in for this year.
