ACTION THIS WAS A REAL STEPThis was a eal step in uality for me which was a pleasant surprise It tells the continuing tale of Lannigon and Astrid as they hunt down monsters and try to prevent Kelewulf from achieving his goals The world has expanded a great deal in this second installment and there was a maturity to the writing that I felt was a little lacking in the first book Lann This is a lovely book The images are amazing similar to Kim Lewis and the story is simple but unusual This is a great story to share with young children It feels like forever since I ead Dark Blade but it s such an easy world to fall back into and actually a eally great job was done with weaving in just enough of the backstory to bring back those key moments from book one I loved the alternating chapters between locations and how the author wasn t afraid to move the focus away from Lann or Kelewulf at times to help ound out the story Whilst book one was Deconstruction in Context: Literature and Philosophy really focused on Lann I felt that weeally got to
Learn About Kelewulf Thisabout Kelewulf this and actually he stole the show for me He had the benefit of a new area and new characters and his battles with both the Lich and being a stranger in a strange land made for utterly compelling Hoffnung Mensch reading Whilst Kelewulf has the benefit of building a solid base in Hasz Lann and Astrid find themselves trave.
