    Actual Rating: 3 1/2The moral of this story for me is if you like a trilogy buy all 3 books when you have the chance otherwise they will mysteriously vanish from every bookstore and you will have to search the internet for elusive copies. Anyway, this series is kind of a junior Lord of the Rings/Game of thrones combo. Lots of court intrigue and magic but less disturbing content. it is a typical middle trilogy book. you're kind of biding time until the excitement starts in the 3rd book but the story and characters are very interesting.

    I'd like to say that this was a great new world, expanding upon the first book, but while it is a good high fantasy novel, it just seems...sub-par after reading some of the more intricate and well thought out series in the high Fantasy world. By no means is that condemnation, it was still a good read, just not up to the level of what I expect from a good novel.

    Slightly better than the first one, but still generic, by-the-numbers fantasy.

    ***CAUTION SPOILER*** This is the sequel of "The Sword". In this book, we learn how Lord Odfrey, Dain's adoptive father, gets killed in a trap set by the nonkind while trying to lead prince Gavril to Mandria. Even though Dain fights fiercely with the help of the enchanted sword, Tanengard, he can't avoid Lord Odfrey's death.After that he decides to go to Mandria to present to the king Lord Odfrey's petition to adopt him. Several of his friends offer to accompany him in his journey. Once in Mandria, he defeats Gavril in a joust, meets Lady Pheresa, Gavril's fiancée, falls in love with her and tries to conquer her. But Lady Pheresa gets sick from drinking some poison that was meant for Dain. So he decides to go looking for the Chalice of eternal life to help her.When Gavril learns about this he says he will go too, because Pheresa was his fiancée.During the quest Dain has to suffer many more traps set up by the cruel Gavril...

    I liked this book, but unfortunately the sequel does not keep up with the first volume. I liked the boy's adventures and even if the story doesn't stand out for its originality, I found it quite enjoyable: the lost prince, the lost heritage, the quest for the magical talisman... if not new, they were at least decently developed. The characters also seemed quite interesting... but in the following two volumes the main character loses all depth: as long as he was a commoner he was 'true', but as soon as he discovers his true identity he suddenly IS a prince. There is no struggle, no hesitation, no CHANGING, one day he is a foundling and the next he is an arrogant noble. Bah. I would suggest Miss Chester to read TheBoneDollsTwin (by Flewelling), just in order to see how a believable -and wonderful- character is developed.

    Ironically while my copy (which I innocently ordered from biblio.com) is missing its cover, it is also signed by Deborah Chester herself. Funny.As for how the book was, it was a good read but it wasn't very original or complex.

    Again not the best book, but again not the worst, just a decent trilogy in the making. Again kept me interested enough to buy the third volume (see reviews for The Sword and The Chalice).

    I finally got to reading this book, and yes, it was really good, and read really fast. I don't seem to remember much from the first book (The Sword) because I read it ages ago (back when I SHOULD have read this one -- I am a slacker)

    Unfortunately, this book just didn't match up to its predecessor. I guess you did need this book to set up the last one, but the author could have done a much better job. I was very unimpressed with the work on the whole.

    It wasn't as action packed as the first (The Sword) but it was still a good book.
