IIt took me a very long while to connect with this book, like, most of it. However, in spite of that, I enjoyed it.
It was a fun adventure, even if I didn't really care that much about the characters. But right before the end, it truly pulled me in. I laughed and I cried and it's because of that ending that this one gets 4 stars. ( )

The band is in it's next generation and Tam Hashford is determined to join one, her father is just as determined to stop her, but she joins the infamous Bloody Rose as their bard as they take on a mission that could kill them. What doesn't kill them is going to try to come back and do terrible things to them.
While some of it is quite serious the background of the Rock and Roll ideas is fun, a little pushed from the first book but this time the stakes are high and it does ask some questions of the society it finds itself in. A good sequel but I prefered the first book ( )

Well, that ending left me in tears. Perfect.

***UPDATE***
I bought that sucker. Now I just have to wait 5-6 days...

Well that gives me time to just sit down and read. Who says work has to be done?

***REACTION UPON FINDING OUT SOMEBODY READ THIS ON ZAT. 1 SEPT. 2018***
HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS WAS COMING?!

DID I FINISHED THE FIRST ONE YET?

NO. BRB. ( )

Well hell. Nicholas Eames is swiftly rising to favourite author status, and that also makes me feel good because he's a fellow Ontario boy. Go Canada!

Seriously, though. I dearly loved the first book in this series, and the ending was so climactic, so well done, I didn't really think he could pull off one that was just as good the second time around.

Damned if he didn't pull it off. Eames put together a whole new band, and made us fall in love with them just as much as he did in the first novel. He made me laugh, he tugged on my heartstrings, he blew me away with the action scenes, and once again, got some great nods to real life bands. Iron Maiden? Boomtown Rats? The Duran twins?

Yeah, this is just the perfect damn book. Well done. ( )

In space no-one can hear you scream "this is derivative Grimdark shit." This looked awful from the get-go but I said to myself: "I'm in" (I read it twice if I count in the first volume “Kings of the Wyld” as the first “read”. Best stock up on snacks then I said to myself).

The only thing Grimdark is lacking now is man-eating extra-terrestrials coming down on a hover board. At this rate we're going to get the sodding hover board first - I couldn't be more hacked off. I just want aliens to come and harvest our organs and that, but they won't, will they? I've cried my eyes out over this so many times, snot pouring down my shirt. The last thirty years have been like a Groundhog Day of bad Christmases, with no man-eating extra-terrestrials in any of the boxes, and then sprouts and the worst, most stingey ice cream at MacDonalds - a fart-arse little amount of it as well. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the high school massacres that there's been have really been about books like these, under the surface. (They lost it a bit soon if you want my opinion, I'm an old geezer myself…) I'm not sulking about it, it's just what I want and it's all I want and nothing else so where is my Grimdark-with-Novelty? I want my Grimdark-with-Novelty with a slightly repressed, well-spoken, well-educated, English posho main character!

It’s hopeless now. Come down and harvest our organs, aliens. There's no Grimdark-with-Novelty down here really, you'll walk it, like riding off a log.

Come and get us. COmE aNd gET US noW!!

Kill us. ( )
