Another review of Stormlord Rising

.
This one from ASIF (Australian Speculative Fiction in Focus), and the review is written by Tehani Wessely. You can read the whole thing here.

It starts with the words: Stormlord Rising is possibly the best Book Two of a series I have ever read.

And ends:

Written so fluidly that the intertwining plot threads weave seamlessly together as the pages progress, Stormlord Rising is a page turner of classic magnitude. The action leaps off the page, supported by characters so well-drawn you fall in love with them, but in the hands of an author not afraid to kill off her darlings, which is a heart-pounding combination!

I read this book in the bath, in bed, feeding the baby and in the wee hours. I simply could not put it down. While it’s a huge book, it was so well put together that the pages flew by and I can only hope there’s not too long to wait for Book Three!

I echo these sentiments wholeheartedly, especially the last sentence *g*

I know I am excited to get to Stormlord Rising with just finishing Last Stormlord. Now you are making it harder on me. :) Sounds like the books is definitely one of the best, which goes right along with the first book.
