Inhaltsangabe

Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

But those gifted with the blood-song are never destined to live a quiet life. Many died in King Janus' wars, but many survived, and Vaelin is a target, not just for those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do. The Faith has been sundered, and many have no doubt who their leader should be. The new King is weak, but his sister is strong. The blood-song is powerful, rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble, but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand more of its mysteries. Something moves against the Realm, something that commands mighty forces, and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a sword.

The suspense continues, looking forward to book 3

Hardly into book one, I was so frustrated by the narrator that I submitted a review for that book based solely on the narrator. Having now finished book two, I can say that I really enjoyed the story and I am looking forward to book three. The author did a good job following the different story lines of a number of main characters, and kept the suspense at a high level.

I don't understand or agree with the many positive reviews of the narrator on Audible.com. Although I do like Steven Brand's voice, in book two he continued to slur his speech at times, and he did not vary the speech of different characters. At times I wasn't sure who was talking, or if the character was saying something out loud or only thinking. Steven Brand also makes pauses in the wrong places of sentences, disrupting the flow of speech. This I got used to, but his rendition added nothing to the story, and was often distracting.

simply great

Steven Brand is in my opinion the perfect choice as a narrator for this kind of tale. the story is totally captivating and, tough normally i'm not a fan of devided story parts, mr. ryan managed to make me overthink this attitude, since it wasn't boring a single minute.
I can absolutely recommend to buy this book, tough I think one should read the "blood song" before :)

Mitreissend, aber sehr unwahrscheinlich

Wie beim ersten Teil fand ich die Geschichte sehr spannend und die Charactere sind mir ans Herz gewachsen. Die Geschichte springt immer wieder zwischen einzelnen Hauptcharackteren hin und her, was ich sonst hasse. Hier sind aber alle Teilgeschichten so spannend, dass man sich über jeden Sprung freut. Jedoch nimmt der Realismus von Kapitel zu Kapitel ab. Die "guten" haben superkräfte, sind unbesiegbare Schwertkämpfer die auch in 1:50 unterzahl ohne kratzer davon kommen. Wohingegen die "bösen" ähnlich der Spartaner aufgezogen wurden quasi perfekte Soldaten sind, trotzdem aber von ein paar wütenden Bauern in Unterzahl besiegt werden.
Nichts desto Trotz ein spannender zweiter Teil und ich freue mich auf Band 3.
