Fantasy. Fiction. Literature. HTML:In Blood Song, Anthony Ryan introduced readers to ??a fascinating world of conflicting religions and the wars fought in the name of those faiths? (Library Journal). Now Ryan??s epic tale continues as Vaelin Al Sorna discovers that there is no escape from the call of destiny?
 
??The blood-song rose with an unexpected tune, a warm hum mingling recognition with an impression of safety. He had a sense it was welcoming him home.?
 
Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus??s vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus??s grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.
 
But those gifted with the blood-song are never destined to live a quiet life. Many died in King Janus??s wars, but many survived, and Vaelin is a target, not just for those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do. The Faith has been sundered, and many have no doubt who their leader should be. The new King is weak, but his sister is strong. The blood-song is powerful, rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble, but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand more of its mysteries. Something moves against the Realm, something that commands mighty forces, and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually

REREAD 2016: Loved it just as much as the 1st time. I want more from Mr Ryan.


ORIGINAL REVIEW: Loved, loved, loved--and shocked that I did. Very much looking forward to the next book in the (what I hope is) a trilogy.

The narrator was quite good--I'll be picking up the print version as well because these books will be on my 'Will Re-read' list. ( )

It took me a lot longer to get through Tower Lord than Blood Song. I liked the first better, but still enjoyed this book. ( )

Really loved this follow-up to Blood Song. Ryan did a lot of work to round out character building with world building and every chapter was entertaining! The addition of new characters like Reva filled some of what I was lacking from the first installment and the build-up to a final war was done in a way that didn't make it feel tired. Can't wait to dive into book three!

If you haven't read this series yet - you're really missing out! ( )

Even better than the first book. The different point of views are interesting and give the story more body. The characters, the world, the complete story: I love it all. ( )

Good Follow-Up to the Original

Ryan carried the story well from where he began the series. It was hard to put the book down despite how long it was and now I can hardly wait for the third to be released.
