I loved Mickey Zucker Reichert s The Legend of Nightfall It s a book that I love and I ve read and reread it several times I had hoped that she d write a seuel so I could spend time with the beloved characters againAfter almost a decade a seuel so I could spend time with the beloved characters againAfter almost a decade did And to be sparse to the point of silliness it was goodThe characters are back were as fun and interesting as they were in the first book Due to obvious storytelling license our hero couldn t stay in the same hopeful situation as he had hero couldn t stay in the same hopeful situation as he had at the nd of The Legend of Nightfall The first rule of writing is to take your protagonist and sueeze him hardMickey Zucker Reichert does that in spades I felt that the trials and tribulations that our hero went through weren t up to the same caliber as the adventures in the first book however but still a worthy seuel and a joy to read I was so very glad to see Nightfall return to the pages of a book but must admit I was just a little disappointed I suppose the newness of the plot concept was gone making much of what happened xpected This does not diminish the value of the read significantly as this same issue has occurred under many authors pens as they try to xpand their creations I might consider this a higher grade after some time and re reads sink in Some of
my favorite books took several passages before their true greatness was revealed I look forward to the next gofavorite books took several passages before their true greatness was revealed I look forward to the next go s been over ten years since Reichert published the first Nightfall novel The Legend of Nightfall which I read in nearly one sitting last year I must say that the seuel while not as good as the first still lived up to my The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online expectations Nightfall was back and jumping in and out the di Entertaining fun with a caveat Set in a fantasy world where some people called the Talented are born with innate abilities and others called sorcerers prey on them and steal their talents by torturing them to deathThe titular character Nightfall was a thief assassin who had made good use of his talent to create a fearsome reputation This seuel carries on where the first book left off with Nightfall as advisor to the idealistic new king spoiler alertI had some problems with the plot no matter how trusted or liked why would the king make Nightfall his chancellor Especially when he has noxperience in that role Also since the chancellor is the ruler in the king s absence how can both chancellor and king go off to a foreign kingdom with no fanfare and practically no guards Also the thinking behind the plot to kidnap the king and thereby discredit Nightfall made no sense I He has been known by countless names and terrifying deeds but chief among those names is that of Nightfall a man or perhaps the legendary demo.
READ & DOWNLOAD The Return of Nightfall (Nightfall, #2)Y Wurts or Mercedes Lackey you ll know what to expect with this author Even though this can be a dark world with people who have dark hearts most people with this author Even though this can be a dark world with people who have dark hearts most people just ordinary human beings trying to survive in it and good usually triumphs over vil although not always and not at firstOne of the things that I found so charming about this author s work which actually propelled me to buy all of her fantasy novels including the unrelated Renshai trilogy is her incredibly detailed world building and the complex intrigue She s so good at foreshadowing and I think her character development is amazing Despite being written a decade apart the books feel pretty consistent and I wouldn t have guessed there was such a gap The open nding of this book makes me wonder if maybe a third book is going to be forthcoming I mean hey it s been over ten years winkI m giving this book a slightly lower rating than the first because 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 (Software Studies) even though I reallynjoyed it it felt denser and didn t move uite as uickly The beginning took a while to get moving and there were several points where there just wasn t Design Research: Methods and Perspectives enough happening to make this feel asngaging as I wished I loved the Your Everyday Art World ending though and Volkmier and Celdurantnded up becoming new favorite characters I the Why Photography Matters ending though and Volkmier and Celdurantnded up becoming new favorite characters I so xcited to dive right into her other fantasy works It pains me that this author isn t well known4 to 45 stars A lighthearted romp with homoeroticism violence and hardcore identity porn Just what I needed right now It s better than the first one although I greatly njoyed that one too and this one probably wouldn t make sense without it Rollicking Good FunThat s what I would call the second book about NightfallIf you haven t read the first one yet the legend of Nightfall I truly suggest that you do so in short orderNow if only someone would convince Mickey to write a third surely someone who knows her could drop a mention in her arPerhaps the storyline could follow Sudian during pending fatherhood while Ned finally gets himself a wifeJust sayin This is a seuel to The Legend of Nightfall which I read years ago I had been resisting picking it up because I was afraid that once I read it I might like it so much I d have to read all of Mickey Reichert s books I was right Still working on that But while her other stuff is uite good there s a special place in my heart for Nightfall So when this book came I had to have it right away Took me a while to get around to actual reading it but that s true of anything It didn t disappoint Highly recommended But read Legend of Nightfall first. Ly crowned king But when his liege disappears Nightfall must get help from Duke Varsah the man who wants nothing than to see Nightfall destroy. ,
Sad that I finished this book already and therefore the series though I appreciate that the author ssentially uit while she was ahead The book was good and ntertaining though I wish there had been interaction between Nightfall and Edward as that s what made the first book so charming Once again things were resolved very uickly and Kelryn was just a love interest with ven less to do with the story than last time Still I njoyed all of Nightfall interest with ven less to do with the story than last time Still I Venous Catheters enjoyed all of Nightfall schemes andven his failures After a long absence Reighert brings back his well known antihero NightfallReighert s plot blends mystery with fantasy when King Edward Nargol is abducted Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestI binged the Nightfall series in just two days The first book THE LEGEND OF NIGHTFALL was published in the arly 90s and the seuel was published over ten years later Even though the first book definitely reads as a completed work there s obviously an open nding for a seuel which is where THE RETURN OF NIGHTFALL comes inNightfall is a legend a story parents tell their children to scare them at night He s also a man who goes by many names and many guises His current incarnation is Sudian which is also the name he was given at birth After saving a sanctimonious and naive king named Ned from the previous book Sudian has been appointed to chancellor and is ngaged to be married to his one true love Things seem pretty sweet until Ned announces that they have to go back to make reparations to a Duke they wronged in the previous book by compromising his daughter s honorThis being a fantasy novel things obviously go awry Nightfall gets pushed into hunting sorcerers to fulfill a promise that he made to break a curse Sorcerers in this book are pretty terrifying In Reichert s world people can be born with gifts but sorcerers are born with a hunger for power that drives them to kill and slaughter the gifted to augment their own powers The best way to steal those people s souls is gifted to augment their own powers The best way to steal those people s souls is torture them first which nds up leading to some horrific off screen vents Being gifted and personally wronged and hunted by sorcerers
