  1. As regards Adare: relief! As regards "her role in the affairs of the Unhewn Throne," well.... I have to know, now. Thanks for the heads-up, Bob.

    1. Definitely a few surprises with Adare here, although nothing out of character. She'll continue to frustrate you early on, but stands up and takes charge in the second half.

  2. Still skeptical but a few more reviews kin this and I may reconsider. I am glad to hear about Ardee though, her exclusion from the first book was head scratching.

    I remember laughing when I saw the appendex in the first outing; there wasn't half enough depth to justify one- perhaps it was in preparation for this outing.

    1. This second volume gets complex fast - I have no idea what's really going on what the end-game is and I like that.

  3. I think I would enjoy the series a lot, it drew my attention with the first part already

  4. This is on my reading list for next month, and I can't wait now! More depth, more from Adare, and just sounds like more polish all around. Sounds good to me.

    1. It more than exceeded my expectations - the increased scope/complexity was a pleasant surprise.

  5. Yay! I have this one and have been hoping to hear positive things. I felt book 1 finished with a setup that could lead to a stronger book 2.
