A fitting sequel to "The Blade Itself", this second part of the trilogy is entertaining, engaging and well-written with plenty of character development. It concerns a few story-lines:
Ninefingers, along with Jesal, Bayaz, Quai and Ferro, travel West ot find a weapon to use in the forthcoming war.
Colonel West, Dogman and his crew, travel North to confront Bethod's armies.
Superior Glotka travels South to help save the city of Dagoska from the Gurkish invasion.
There's a lot of fighting and battles so, if you get bored of these, this may not interest you for long.
All to be resolved in the third volume.
