Set in an alternate Europe where bloody conflicts rage, the second book of the Crown of Stars epic fantasy series chronicles a world-shaking conflict for the survival of humanity Sanglant--the Prince of Dogs, King Henry's bastard son; though believed dead by all who could succor him, he is being held captive in the city of Gent by Bloodheart, the Eika warlord. Cursed by his mother's blood with an inability to die, he struggles to maintain the last shreds of his sanity in the hope rescue may yet come....   Liath--now a King's Eagle, and still grieving over Sanglant, she strives to unlock the secrets of the past while seeking to evade the traps set for her by an obsessively ambitious man. But even a post in King Henry's court offers her little protection from those determined to claim the forbidden knowledge she has hidden....   Alain--raised in humble surroundings but now proclaimed a Count's heir, he is increasingly troubled by visions of the enemy he befriended and the Lady of Battles who he's sworn to serve. A man who desires nothing more than peace, he is about to be thrust into the heart of war with the Eika....   Fifth Son--least favored child of Bloodheart, he has returned to the lands of his own people to build an army to do his father's bidding. If he survives this mission, he will become a force to be reckoned with....   And even as King Henry continues his progress through his troubled realm, defeating rebellious lords and gathering their promises of troops to use at Gent, Sanglant, Liath, Alain, and Fifth Son are fighting their own battles against almost overwhelming odds. Only time will tell who will prove triumphant as all are caught up in the dangers and turmoil of a world at war.… (més)

The sequel in the Crown of Stars series is more interesting and more developed then the first book. The story continues off directly where the first one ended. It is still a slow book that pushes the story forward to where you finally get a resolution to some plot-lines started in the first book. The characters are written more interestingly and most of the drama is more exciting. There is still a romance piece that makes no sense to me, but it is not focused on much. The tropes are typical fantasy still, but I still enjoy reading them. There are continued hints of an underlying, larger plot which I'm sure will develop with each book. Overall a great story that I think builds on the first one. ( )

Sanglant, King Henry's bastard son is capitve of the Eika Bloodheart in the city of Gent, unknown to anyone. Liath is now one of the King's Eagles, grieving over Sanglant and trying to avoid Hugh, while trying to understand her father's teachings and what it could mean. Alain is now a Count's heir, is having visions of one of the Eika and the Lady of Battles appears to have a purpose for him. Fifth Brother, one of the Eika, the least favoured of Bloodheart's sons is trying to raise an army and understand the visioins he is having of Alain. Meanwhile Anna is trying to survive this broken world and keep safe.

It's a complicated world and you can see by the end that there are wheels within wheels and the story progresses, but I found it a bit of a slog. Satisfied by the end but I wanted more. ( )

Longer review to come. The worldbuilding in this series is fascinating, but it's so much slower than what I usually read and I have a feeling it's only going to get more glacial from here... ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Well written, characters are fleshed out, the threads of people’s lives are starting to weave together a little more and the magic is starting to be explored in more detail. ( )

This book isn't bad, but it certainly is bland. As fresh and interesting as the world is, Elliott relies on the same old fantasy tropes that have been making the literary rounds for years now.

Reluctant hero who believes in "justice" and regrets his rise to power? Check.

Mysterious heroine with a power she never knew she had? Check.

Ham-fisted political "intrigue" that boils down to "evil relative wants to take over the country"? Double check.

These things aren't bad - just boring. That's the best description for this book. It's very, very boring. I can only read Alain lamenting his good fortune for so long until I get the old "wheel of time" syndrome. Reluctant heroes aren't interesting. Fantasy needs to move past them and evolve. ( )
