    I liked it a lot a 3.5 stars.It is a much slower book than book 1, a chess game really in which all the places are carefully placed.I did not like how the Red situation was so quickly resolved while it is supposed to be a very difficult matter That was a big disappointment.But very good continuation of the series and I cannot wait for the next one

    There s just something about this series and the author s writing style that I love I liked the second installment as much as I did the first There s a gritty feeling to the world, the characters and the storyline I do believe gritty and not GrimDark is the correct view of this series, although this book is darker a spots than book one Pirates, Ninjas, evil alchemists, brothels, bars, gangs The story itself isn t all that complicated and usually I reserve a lot of my 5 s for those epic boo There s just something about this series and the author s writing style that I love I liked the second installment as much as I did the first There s a gritty feeling to the world, the characters and the storyline I do believe gritty and not GrimDark is the correct view of this series, although this book is darker a spots than book one Pirates, Ninjas, evil alchemists, brothels, bars, gangs The story itself isn t all that complicated and usually I reserve a lot of my 5 s for those epic books but the second most common for me is the ones where the author makes the characters come to life for me Riyeria and Ember in the Ashes come to mind This is like that but with a street tough steampunk feel to everything The addition of Lady Merivale was terrific One of my favorite female characters ever She doesn t fit the normal stereotypes of either princesses or chicks with dicks Loved her character depth and the way she and Red duked it out mentally with a lot of innuendo mixed in for good measure For me personally it s not an issue but I think some could find issue with the crude language and slang but I thought it just added to the grit of the world

    This is book 2 in the Empire of Storms series and it s just such a fast and fun story I definitely enjoyed this book a lot and it is filled to the brim with fantasy troupes twisted on their heads, lewd and funny moments, and rudeness It s definitely not a series for anyone who s not okay with slang and jokes, but if you re okay with that, there are some real winners in here and insults such as dippy wrink and cock dribble are commonly used terms This story follows Dire Bane and her crew a This is book 2 in the Empire of Storms series and it s just such a fast and fun story I definitely enjoyed this book a lot and it is filled to the brim with fantasy troupes twisted on their heads, lewd and funny moments, and rudeness It s definitely not a series for anyone who s not okay with slang and jokes, but if you re okay with that, there are some real winners in here and insults such as dippy wrink and cock dribble are commonly used terms This story follows Dire Bane and her crew as they sail the seas on the hunt for a missing friend of theirs and a way to free him from the clutches of the evil Biomancers The world they live in is largely rules by the Emperor and his Biomancers who are manipulators of biology and can create necromantic creatures, transform skin into gills, and bring to life great big evil behemoth monsters amongst muchIt s definitely not an easy life to live in the troubled times they do, but it s a damn fun on and they make the best of it under Bane s instruction.The other story we follow is that of Rixedentron who is a young noble from a not so noble beginning, He is into all the court politics and has even managed to befriend the Prince who will one day rule over the whole country However, when a shadow demon starts to attack people and there is talk of rebels against the Biomancers Rixedentron realises there may be a lotat stake than first appeared What I love about this series is the unabashed and unashamed lewdness of the characters Not only do we have lots of swearing and nudity and hook ups left right and centre, it s also all filled with such good fun that you can t help but to roll your eyes and smile along.This book fell slightly flatter than the first for me, but that s probably due to having less reading time when I picked this one up as I remember reading book 1 all in a day or so However, it s still a rollicking pirate y adventure and there s a whole lot to enjoy about this series 3.5 s overall and recommended

    Well, this was a blast I loved every minute of this adventure with magic and that s in spite of the fact that I was forced to read this in umpteen sittings due to pesky daily life situations getting in the way I hate when that happens.One thing is for sure, this trilogy does not suffer from the middle book syndrome one tiny bit It didn t drag or stall but just kept coming with the action and despite its slightly darker tone compared to the first book which I loved, it much felt like a smil Well, this was a blast I loved every minute of this adventure with magic and that s in spite of the fact that I was forced to read this in umpteen sittings due to pesky daily life situations getting in the way I hate when that happens.One thing is for sure, this trilogy does not suffer from the middle book syndrome one tiny bit It didn t drag or stall but just kept coming with the action and despite its slightly darker tone compared to the first book which I loved, it much felt like a smile on my face, wind in my hair convertible ride on a Summer s day that didn t slow down much until the very end Well, at least it was this for me Your experience might still resemble an uphill bike ride in the pouring rain With your bitchin grandma on the back Just sayin End of disclaimer.Yet, the very best things about this series so far are definitely the action and the characters that in book one I liked well enough but in this installment I grew to love and root for through all of their inner turmoil and outer predicaments Also, it s been a while since I ve read a fantasy series with this level of character growth going on and inthan just the protagonist, so definitely extra points for that If you re thinking of starting this series, do be aware that there s a lot of slang and a fair amount of swearing going on I m usually not in favour of the usage of a lot of swear words in books This is not due to personal objection but mainly because it tends to take me out of a story There are just some swear words that I particularly associate with our modern world, so it took a little time in book one to get used to it By now though, I am relishing both the slang and the swearing It honestly does so much for the shape and feel of this world and the liveliness of the characters and I just think it s brilliant.I did have one minor gripe though I thought Red s problem was resolved rather quickly and with unexpected little fuss After all the buildup that was a bit of an anti climax Yet, with another book in the series to go, it may very well be we haven t seen the last of this particular sub plot just yet. I m hoping we haven t because if we have, this was definitely resolved too easily the poetic thought behind its resolution notwithstanding.Anyway, I still cannot wait to start the final installment Stop reading this and start reading this series, my wags

    Rating 3.5 StarsLots of impressive world building and a major plot twist I didn t see coming, but ultimately I felt like this suffered from Middle Book Syndrome It sets up an explosive finale, but was not close to being as good as Hope and Red.

  9. Sanna Sanna says:

    I absolutely loved this book So much is happening all the time, just the way I like it The story is really addictive Let s just hope that the last book is just as good
