One thought circled in his head like the black birds swirling about the mountain peaks They must be stopped CorbanValour carries on literally minutes after the action when Malice presented us such an amazing breathless finale We witness the so called Bright Star Corban; and his bizarre accumulated band of all sorts that incorporates warriors witches ueens and outcast woodsmen following on from the evacuation of Dun Carreg due to the unforeseeable monstrous actions that took place with the effects still lingering amongst the groups' morale It also picks up with readers favourite Mauin awakening in the tombs underneath Haldis after the ultimate betrayal and follows him overcoming his tragic loss knowing that his main ambition is now purely revenge All the point of view perspectives from Malice if the characters are still alive that is; still continue here and Gwynne has united a bond between player and reader throughout the narrative We really care about these guys as in one book we have already been through so much together The Malice players perspectives would only cover about fifty five percent of the world's happenings so many new and just as engrossing characters are introduced who let us prance around their minds and hear what is going on These include hardened female Giant fighter Coralen Jehar warrior top dog Tukul and Uthas a giant who was featured in the first book of the saga but whose motives are uniue and mysterious The need for these new perspectives is so that when factions cross as either friends or foes we have someone we can relate to on both sides which will help us understand the necessary camaraderie felt or potential hatred Corban is still the main perspective that we follow At the start of this book he doesn't accept or even really believe his foreseen destiny He envisages that the people closest to him who believe these predictions are a little bit mad and focusing on fables and faery stories however much that he loves these comrades He still trains with former stablemaster Gar for reasons he doesn't understand but Corban will not yet even contemplate what the truth could be We can see that he is growing up to be a very clever respected and influential individual People are still awestruck when they see him fight or train with Gar but he doesn't know why Throughout the tale and different factions become intertwined and infected with his destiny This book really presents a lot regarding the unity joy and comraderies of friendship Once a Camlin scene comes to mind it was slightly unrealistic with his statements regarding his change from hard brutal forest warrior to Corban's kinsman and troop leader essentially I like the positive sides of people so if a character could change this much and it is for a progressive story reason I will not see it as a negative Corban also notices these weird things that keep staring and smiling at him Ladies Will a love story impact on our heroes destiny It would not be the first book that such a dilemma had occurred Valour is highly focused around three amazing sieges and battles following High King Nathair and his alliance with Rhin in the West of the Banished Lands which is where the majority of this tale freuents Nathair believes he is the heralded Seren Disglair and has been advised by his Lord that he needs to obtain the seven Giant treasures to save the world from darkness It is obvious that Gwynne knows his swords weapons and can create the most amazing battle seuences arguably some of the best I have read in fantasy The shield wall reminds me of the Battle of Red Cliff in China The warfare is full of unpredictable awesomeness betrayals tricks and not forgetting the side who decide to trick the side who just tricked them The tale in the East follows the 'Old Wolf' Mauin an honourable hero who has somehow failed in keeping all his vows in life thus far I will not say too much but this side includes brain washing fighting pits degradation and extreme inhumanity We analyse the point of views from both sides of the armies so we know exactly what their opinions represent when certain seuences happens Such as analysis and proof that enemies have shapeshifting demons amongst the flanks an undefeatable shield wall and not forgetting a talking crow raven and a brutally loyal extreme skin piercing howling Wolven are in the mix The ending was uniue and as a critic I have nothing critical to say about it Instead of the one aforementioned see my last review scene to finish off Malice we have three to enjoy I will say that word lightly as like me you will have no idea what will happen before this novel's conclusion All three scenes end up with enticing cliff hangers I have to wait two days until I can afford Ruin and that really annoys me I was debating on whether I was going to give this book four or five stars After much deliberation I decided that the only reason I would rate this four stars is that I think the next book will be better Valour itself is a five star book so I will not be distracted by how great the extremities are that this saga could reach In my mind and I know Gwynne has a lot of respect for the gentleman and I do not blame him but I think this series is superior in consistency the amount of amazing characters and superb point of views to ASOIAF I know that is a huge statement Let me hope my sweeping statement is not premature with two books left to go From what all my Goodreads friends say there is no way I will be disappointed I hate to admit a couple of errors came through in the novel I saw two spelling mistakes and a few randomly missed speech marks I have a critical eye and these small very minute issues did not detract from my enjoyment at all

See this review and like it at wwwbookbastionnetRelated Reviews Book I Malice ★★★★★Picking up exactly where Malice left off John Gwynne re enters the epic fantasy foray with a stunning followup to his debut novel that I won't soon forget Those who worry about picking up series written by a debut author have no fear here because the story movement and character building here is just as lovingly crafted by Mr Gwynne as it was in the first book Whereas Malice is a bit slower in its delivery as it establishes the world the characters and their places within it Valour places its focus on getting that plot up and running and from page one to the very end the characters are on the move getting stuff done There's a real tendency for fantasy to have brief moments of action followed by hundreds of pages of exposition and incredibly slow movement Here Gwynne focuses on keeping his plot rolling within constant movement and action scenes instead giving Valour an almost frenetic pace in keeping with the chaos the characters endure as their world descends into turmoil and death Sometimes in fantasy that is told through shifting POV there is a tendency to repeat information or see the same scenes unfold through various eyes which I think is one of the traps of multiple perspectives Gwynne deftly avoids them here using shifting perspectives to create a finely woven tapestry of tension that lends the reader a better understanding of why things are unfolding the way they are without boring them along the wayThis entry to the series is darker than its predecessor in tone and content as much of the world we come to love in the first book descends into war and political machinations The real heart of the series continues to come from its characters They are varied and well crafted each presenting a distinct take on the world and situations unfolding through their uniue POV chapters I love them all and the ancillary characters that surround them are just as easy to root for When people are in danger or meet their demise here it is always devastating and heartbreaking The threat of my favorite characters being in danger created a very real compulsion for me to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next While some plot points were a little too predictable for my taste I do think that the overall movement pace and thematic content present in the story was enough for me to overlook it and continue to enjoy the directions the story headed Another aspect I particularly enjoy about Gwynne's writing is his ability to describe battle scenes They are always epic easy to envision and extremely fast paced While some scenes are particularly brutal Valour places its focus on the horrors of war rather than glorifying in it I'm very excited to see where the series goes next There's some crazy plot movement in this entry to the series that I can't wait to see built upon in the next book Wherever the story goes next I am certain that it will continue to be epic ★★★★★ 55 stars

More people freaking die but of course that's to be expected right I didn't cry though Yay me And of course I loved the book ♥This book starts up where the first book leaves off Corban and the crew are on the run after the fall of Dun Carreg where they lived They sail across the water getting into troubles meeting up with new people deaths etc and so forth I loved when the Jehar Warriors came I was so looking forward to reading about them I hope to read in the next book but PLEASE don't kill anyone I like in that group Corban's sister Cywen is still stuck in Dun Carreg with the evil people because they thought she was dead but she was not That's not a spoiler if you read the first book you will figure she is not dead either Cywen gets to learn about the evil people that are there that killed her friends and part of her family But she just may have a few on her side She also has her fathers dog Buddai on her side and Corban's horse Shield I just wish she would have tried to sneak away at night Like I said before it all turns out for the good though And Veradis is there I'm hoping he will see reason and something will happen with him and Cywen I love him for now at least The book is really good if you love epic fantasy books There is still the God War going on and I don't see it ending any time soon with all of the prophecies I'm afraid to pick up the next book and I'm going to wait a little bit because I'm afraid who or what will die next NOOOOOO MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List
