Book Review – The Dagger of Adendigaeth


Book Review

Alliances form and break as new discoveries are made and old loves rekindled. In The Dagger of Adendigaeth, the characters from the book Cephrael’s Hand plunge

THE GOOD

This book, much like the last, is very well written. The world is fantastic, well described and diverse. The characters continue to grow and develop beyond their origins. The twists and turns of the personal stories and the greater story keeps the reader turning pages at a rapid pace. It was often hard to put this one down and I know I spent more than one night staying up far later than I should have.

THE BAD

There is nothing bad I can say about this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it from front to back and I cannot wait to start the next one.

THE TAKEAWAY

The seeds planted in the first book take root in this one and the resulting story is excellent. I  was eager to get my hands on this one and it did not disappoint. Some of the strings left hanging from the first book come together in this one and it leads straight into the third book, which I will be starting shortly.  I would definitely recommend checking out this book and this series.

About the book: “A Pattern of Shadow & Light Book 2

At long last, the reason for the blessed Adept race’s decline has been discovered: powerful beings known as Malorin’athgul are disrupting the Balance and preventing Alorin’s Adepts from awakening to their gifts. Who are they? Where are they? And how can they be stopped when they wield a power meant to unmake the universe itself?

In T’khendar…Prince Ean val Lorian has forsaken his companions in blood and battle to join the traitorous Fifth Vestal in T’khendar in the hopes of gaining some insight into the tragedies that plagued his Return. Now he must confront the man he’s long thought of as his enemy and discover the role he is meant to play in the First Lord’s darkly magnificent game.

The Vestal Raine D’Lacourte has followed his traitorous oath-brother Björn through six kingdoms and into the distant realm of T’khendar seeking explanation and atonement. But the condemned realm harbors shocking secrets, and Raine soon realizes he’s facing his greatest enemy yet—not in Björn, but in the truth.

Elsewhere in Alorin…the young truthreader, Tanis, faces a new villain in the fiery-eyed man he followed from the café in Rethynnea; the soldier Trell struggles to reconcile his growing feelings for the girl he rescued from the river against the guilt of his unknown past; and in Tambarré, another truthreader named Kjieran van Stone treads the incense-filled hallways of the Prophet Bethamin’s temple hoping to uncover a plot of treachery and betrayal before the Prophet demands his soul.

The time has come for each player to claim his role in the First Lord’s masterful game. All will be tested, but only time will tell how many can survive the dagger of Adendigaeth.
Get The Dagger of Adendigaeth through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    This seems like a pretty intense series. I don’t know if it’s what I’d read or not… and I hate that because then I HAVE to start reading it, LOL 🙂

    1. I would definitely read it. It is an intense series, like you said, but it is so worth the read. It is a total page turner and it is really worth it. I’ll have the review for the final book up this weekend.
