Description

If you've read The Shadow of the Gods, then you will know that the theme of friendship and found family shines the most in Varg's and Elvar's chapters. I was interested in reading this book because I wanted to learn what's going to happen to the children. I had a little trouble with Elvar's POV in The Shadow of the Gods but that's not the case in this one. If you somehow haven’t seen the cover art of The Shadow of the Gods and The Hunger of the Gods, do it now. But at roughly 210k words and more than 600 pages long, it seems like almost the entirety of the novel revolved around them (all the POV characters) traveling.

Orka's character development was excellent, I enjoyed seeing another side of her and watch her learn more about herself. It's fewer than Gwynne's usual standard, but the Gwynnado in the middle part of the novel that revolved around his chapters were unputdownable. Una evolución constante es lo que encuentra el lector en esta segunda parte, no es para nada un puente hacia el tercero. I was delighted by the beginning of the book, which included a character list and a summary of book 1.

I think what sets Gwynne’s writing apart (aside from mind blowing world building), would be his incredible way of portraying exceptional characters. Although his chapters were relatively less intense for the majority of the book, I think Gwynne has successfully nailed the balance of see-saw in the calm and the intense moments in Varg's POV chapters. This was an epic and action-packed fantasy about vengeance, loyalty, friendship, power, grief and love. They are strong individuals that would circle the land to fight for what they believe in, sacrifice themselves to save the ones they love, and prove their worth to the world. When I saw we were getting Gudvar pov chapters I wasn't too excited at first, but I was totally wrong bc they were some of the most entertaining, dude is a total weasel, but he is funny as hell.

That being said, I didn't mind the fact that we experience some other characters' journeys and it wasn't confusing as their stories intersect with the main characters much of the time. Gwynne made my life much easier by including a recap section at the beginning, a glossary for the characters and even a pronunciation guide.I think their primary path in this installment is positively rooted, so they become more sympathetic. Sure, I empathized with Orka for example and desperately wanted her to find Breca but I did not feel any connection nor link with the characters.
