A Fire In The North: Annals Of Lindormyn 2 Reviews
I'd like to opologize to all the good books I could have read while plodding through this over zealous, self indulgent 2nd book from David Bilsborough. Unlike many reviewers I rather liked the campy feel to his first book. Everyone likes an epic adventure right? A group of pals heading off to slay the evil Rawgr. The first book was over written, over dramatic and the prose was heavy but to me it somehow worked. I therefore was excited to find his next instalment. Unfortunately to me everything that I found campy in the first book became boorish and hard to plod through in the second book. It's hard for me not to like a good ol fantasy adventure but this book was gratuitous in its gore to the extreme and frankly lost its impact. There were enjoyable points with the troupe along the way and so called good over came evil but it was a long 450 some pages. Don't stop writing Mr. Bilsborough just dial it back. Every sentence does not have to be an epic gory death.
The review rounds it up nicely, a step up from beforeA better second effort from David Bilsborough after a weak opening to the first novel in this series, the travellers carry on in this novel having just about made it to the other side of the mountains near Melhus Island, their destination, 2 of them lag behind but try catching up by passing through Wrythe, not a good plan, they all eventually meet up with the ending being a rip-roaring finale alongside some of the best I have ever read, I couldn’t put it down till it finished it, still open for another in the series but well-rounded off if this is the finale, worth a visit after you've read the big fantasy series and you're looking for something a little less epic and a little more personal
I always start off with how I do my rating- 5 stars are my favorite books and will re-read and recommend to anyone. 4 stars are ones that I liked a lot but not loved as a favorite. 3 stars are ones that I liked (just liked). 2 stars are ones that I was not fond of. 1 star is for ones I hate and can not stand.
Apparently Billsborough spent 25 years developing his world of Lindormyn. He persevered until his first novel in the series, A Wanderer’s Tale, was published. A Fire in the North is the second book. Boldhe journeys through a cold landscape. It is an agonising read. Dense and self-indulgent.
Great finish to a great story. A sad ending but it was well polished.
