      An excellent fantasy novel that builds on the great work of the first.

      Peter V. Brett's world of demons and magic wards really bursts into life in this second book. Starting with an epic insight into the intriguing Krasian culture glimpsed so briefly in 'The Painted Man' before returning to the tattoo covered demon warrior himself.

      Each of the main characters is beautifully realised and the effort taken in the first book to give the reader their full backstory really pays off. After the initial focus on the Krasians Brett departs from his writing style of focussing on one character for an extended period of time in favour of the more conventional approach of jumping between plotlines until they all intertwine.

      Throughout it is clear that the epic finale is yet to come but the time invested in the characters here, for both reader and writer, is definitely worth it.

      If you enjoyed 'The Painted Man', this is even better. If you are a fan of the new wave of fantasy writers such as Brent Weeks or Brandon Sanderson, then you will love this entire trilogy and I heartily recommend it.
