I don’t know if it’s because I was so attached to Corban as a character or what, but I felt like his story should have been told more like Corban’s was. Gwynne’s writing is as great as usual and I loved it and there was so much that I can quote from the book! I did expect some of the events because I am more used to Gwynne’s writing now but I was still surprised by some twists at the end and Gwynne always choose the best plot line anyway, so even if it is expected, it does not make it any less interesting!

disclaimer: this series is a spin-off to The Faithful and the Fallen Series by John Gwynne – be warned if you haven’t read that this review will spoil you on that series and nothing I say will make any sense to you. Aptly titled, this book is filled with a sense of dread that only increases until the final hundred pages, which I flew through.That said I don’t feel like I had to have read that series to enjoy this one since I completely enjoyed it. I think that was another point where Drem’s storyline was left a little weak: we never followed any perspectives that allowed us to see him from the outside as someone else would.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, excellent world building, great characters and excellent storytelling. This book is actually easier to follow because there are only 4 POVs instead of the 10 we had in the original series and because the world has merged into a kind of unions so there are fewer cities than the first series! Some good characters, although a hint of coming of age element crept into it, but not enough to spoil it.And when I started to wonder where he was taking his story, John brought every thread into focus in a most exciting, tense, unexpected and emotional way.
