The Soldier King: Malan excels at character-driven action novels
Sword and sorcery. With book two we dug a bit more into Dhulyn's past, which was cool. I liked how the pretending-to-be-actors subplot fed into the main plot. Some nice twists and turns, especially toward the end, with a powerful villain opponent. Mar 01, A. Jankiewicz rated it it was amazing. Loved it!

The action is written in such a way that it keeps your fingers itching to turn to the next page. Feb 15, Kaycee Looney rated it liked it. Didn't fall into the "book 2" syndrome of being a filler book or rehashing old issues from book one until the author could bring up the new problem that will be resolved in book 3. It came to a satisfying ending, but still left me eager to read the next book in the series. Dhulyn and Parno begin the book on a battlefield, just after the forces they have joined have won. Dhulyn, a Seer, knew it would be so - however, what she doesn't know is why.

The opposing army should be under the protection o Didn't fall into the "book 2" syndrome of being a filler book or rehashing old issues from book one until the author could bring up the new problem that will be resolved in book 3. The opposing army should be under the protection of the powerful Blue Mage. So, what went wrong? When they find the crown prince shot in the leg with one of his own army's arrows, they take him under their protection. As mercenaries they have no imposed loyalty to anyone but each other.
The more they learn about the prince and his kingdom, the more convinced they are that the Blue Mage must be stopped before his power grows too great. However, stopping the Blue Mage has consequences of its own. Nov 22, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: dark , fantasy.
A good followup book to The Sleeping God, this explored more of the world, more of Dhulyn's past the first concentrated on Parno and was a good fleshing out of the series. I'm interested in finding out what happens next, as the only Red Horseman of the Tribes and the history we're given in here makes it seem very unlikely there's more out there. In fact, the last page of the book itself is pretty much a question I cannot reveal without spoilers, and is a thought I had myself. An unanswered q A good followup book to The Sleeping God, this explored more of the world, more of Dhulyn's past the first concentrated on Parno and was a good fleshing out of the series.
An unanswered question. I look forward to book 3 in the hopes of getting some answers. Nov 04, Darren rated it really liked it. Picks up right as the first one ends, so the two books really make one story, that ties up neatly at the end, but still leaves plenty of room to keep the series going.
I really liked the characters in this one - not a lot of angst, but a good deal of doing the right thing and choosing to help people. My kind of fantasy. Dec 18, Mark Lacy rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , abandoned. I really wanted to like this book. I was drawn by the cover, for one. And the relationship between these two people is a very interesting one. But there just wasn't enough excitement to really pull me in. Just wasn't that interesting, so I abandoned it about halfway through. Mar 25, Shama Bole rated it liked it.
