Such an exciting novel! This novel was amazing! I hate Iuda with every fiber of my being. But that’s why this was such a great book, you think your enemy is one thing, when it facts it’s a whole different person, and yet not. That’s what I love about Kent’s writing, his characterization. He is able to create such imaginative and realistic people that make the story and plot so plausible that I found myself forgetting that this was a work of fiction. There is a lot of evolution in these characters since the first book. Iuda is more deceitful, more cruel than he was before and Aleskie was more honorable, more human and aware of his failings than before. I absolutely loved it. The way that history and horror mix in this novel, had me at the edge of my seat, had me wondering what was going to happen next, I couldn’t put the book down. No way, no how. Like I said before, this novel was so captivating and brilliantly written that I often times forgot that this was fiction. Or is it?
I didn’t have any issues with this book other than the fact that there were some minor typos, however, as much as they irked me, they are not much to make a big fuss about. This was simply an amazing book that flowed so quickly and smoothly I was enthralled by the tensions and suspense throughout. 4/4 ★‘s and an “A++”.
