Only fools think war is simple. Or glorious. Some are warriors, some captains; others tend to the fallen or feed the living. But on the magic-drenched battlefield, information is the lifeblood of victory, and Aranthur is about to discover that carrying messages, scouting the enemy, keeping his nerve, and passing on orders is more dangerous, and more essential, then an inexperienced soldier could imagine . . . especially when everything starts to go wrong. Battle has been joined - on the field, in the magical sphere, and in the ever-shifting political arena . . . Praise for Miles Cameron 'A masterclass in how to write modern fantasy - world building, characters, plot and pacing, all perfectly blended. Miles Cameron is at the top of his game. To say I loved it is an understatement' John Gwynne 'Miles Cameron is back with a brand new series and you're going to be hooked from the very beginning. A fresh take on the typical farm boy turned hero fantasy, this is everything you could possibly want in a fantasy series' The Bibliophile Chronicles 'A stirring, gritty and at times quite brutal epic fantasy' Tor.com 'This series promises to be the standout epic fantasy for the ages' Fantasy Book Critic… (més)

A very fine second installment to this series. Lots of secrets and plotting, great characterizing, and fantastic battle scenes.

Cameron inverts the plot structure of Cold Iron for the middle book of the trilogy: where the previous book broadly was focussed on conflicts within one city, with those conflicts finding expression in duels, Dark Forge is a travelogue with the conflict finding expression on full-scale battles. Likewise, where the first book is temporally flat, showing Aranthur's modern world, the second has key foci which are artifacts older than the empire and in some cases older than humanity.

Thematically, and on the level of the bildungsroman which underpinned the first volume, it continues the arc of Aranthur's both figuring out what is actually going in around him and discovering the limits of the martial skills - both magical and mundane - which he has depended on until now. With knowledge and experience, his choices become more difficult and ethically complex.

Cameron's use of languages of the real world to map the differing languages of his sub-created one ensures consistency at that level of world-building, although some effects of that had me getting small flashbacks to Flashman's various adventures in the Indian subcontinent and the Kizil Kum. Other than that, the details revealed in this book are well integrated.

This book moves at a run, and returns home to uncover a whole new level of crisis, setting up the third book for an even more complex struggle. It is not meant to be read on its own, and should be read as the central part of a single book - it points towards a payoff which is beyond its own scope.

Well worth the read. ( )
