    The second volume of the epic fantasy saga that began with The Hawk and His Boy takes us back to the story of the thief Jute. The emissaries of the Darkness have infiltrated the city of Hearne in search of him. Desperate to escape, the boy flees the city and heads into the wilderness of the north. But the ghosts of the past have other plans for him and, soon, Jute and his friends must choose between their own deaths or the destruction of the entire land. All the while, the mysterious lady Levoreth races against time in order to discover who is behind the schemes of the Darkness.

    Der Autor hat sich hier stark gebessert. Das Buch ist spannender, besser geschrieben wie der erste Band. Ich muss sagen Teil 2 habe ich auch fast durchgelesen ohne das Buch wegzulegen (musste zwischendruch dann leider doch arbeiten gehen;))...

    Der Kauf hat sich gelohnt...

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Sequel, Better Than the First 14. November 2011
    Von Richard Finn - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. The second installment is longer and has a lot more to sink one's teeth into. There are several climax points, including one that could have been the climax the first book needed and a couple which occur in parallel. The writing style is well done, the suspense is just right, the fantasy elements are all there - with a twist or three. There are a few sections of info dumps which could have been more spread out, but they're not too dry or obstructing.

    Overall, an awesome book and I look forward to finishing out the trilogy!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen even better than the first! 5. April 2011
    Von Daniel - Veröffentlicht auf

    This is really good, how am I the first review?

    Shadow picks up where The Hawk And His Boy leaves off, and if anything gets better. No middle volume slump here. Several significant confrontations with the Dark along with identities and allegiances uncovered, both expected and unexpected, keep the story moving along at a good pace. The prose standard continues to be high. And where some authors outsmart themselves with "clever" twists that make you roll your eyes and wonder what they could possibly have been thinking, the twists here work well, keeping the story fresh, and yet having that feeling of inevitability one gets from a story proceeding exactly as it must.

    As with most longer fantasy the story follows multiple characters or groups. Often with that type of plot I get annoyed with one or more threads and plod through them waiting to get back to party X with the characters I like, but that doesn't happen here as all characters are either sufficiently appealing in their own right or up to no good in such a way that I genuinely wanted to know what they are doing.

    A lot of focus in first half or so of this volume seems to be on characters other than Jute, arguably the main character in volume one, though it does drop in on him occasionally at first and more often as the story progresses. A number of characters who had lesser roles in Hawk And His Boy get to spend a lot more time on stage and come into their own in this volume. Owain Gawinn and Levoreth happily get a lot of stage time here.

    Can't wait for the final volume, which will immediately jump to the head of my queue when it's available. If you like classic Good vs Evil save the world fantasy, give this series a try.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen A little better than the first 4. Oktober 2011
    Von P. Underwood - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Ok.... clearly this should be a two book series. I can not say that definitively, because I do not intend to read the last book.

    Why do you ask?

    Because life is too short for cheap wine, bad food and marginal books.

    Things done well:
    - The knife has a nice surprising background.
    - A face is given to the evil.
    - And..... I'm sorry, I have nothing else.

    - The bird is a deeper character than Jute.
    - A whole tower of wizards are decimated in 2 secs... Mice? Cats?
    - The scholars are just a little too bumbling.
    - The plot is still pretty slow... but presumably everything will be OK once they reach a some city (Harlach?).
    - The new "evil villain" is entirely cookie-cutter.

    So.... to continue my earlier analogy --> you can kick back with a rice cake and tofu salad, crack open a non-alcoholic beer and read this series.... but I don't think you will be satisfied on any level.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than the first-- Nice, Original fantasy 7. August 2012
    Von Tax Accountant - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I love YA fantasy and I am really enjoying this series so far. The concept is original and the world-building has been really well done.



    I was disappointed in some of the characters that were killed off; particularly Nio who was so interesting. I guess I was hoping for some sort of redemption, but alas, it was not to be.

    This is a good book for teens and young adults, but not younger than 13, I would say. There's no sex or profanity, but there's a lot of killing in this installment, and some of it is violent, like when Smede gets eaten alive by cats. It's not really a complaint, just an observation.

    That being said, I love this series so far and I am anxious to continue the next installment.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic! 28. Juni 2012
    Von Matt A - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I enjoyed the first book, but Bunn really hits his stride in the second book. The characters all have an added depth, the story is more intricate and refined, the pacing is more fluid, and the experience overall is more enjoyable. The world really opens up in Shadow, with all the secondary details and backstories becoming clearer and more engrossing. I feel like these are the pieces that change a book from a story into a world, from words into feelings. I became personally invested in every major viewpoint character; riding along with their triumphs and tragedies. Good fantasy transports you to its world and makes you feel with greater magnitude than many 'real' things do, Shadow accomplishes this without question. I highly recommend reading the Tormay trilogy (though full disclosure I haven't read the third one yet), plus the 1st book is on Amazon for free so go give it a try!
