Wait, what?

I loved the first book but was unfortunately pretty disappointed with this one. The story becomes very hard to follow, very quickly. the gutter prayer was already on a pretty fast pace but this is ridiculous. it's to bad too cause I feel like I would have liked the story if it would just slow down a bit and let me get accustomed to the new aspects of this world that is introduced. not to mention having to keep track of the spy and his many identities.

Sluggish world-building hampers good story

I loved the Gutter Prayer and was eagerly wanting more of the same. What I got here was a story that for a third of the book seemed divorced from what had occurred previously.

Expanding the world of humanity and Gods would have appealed to me, but instead we get a political campaign and new characters and no real sense of how it all ties in with what has gone before.

Eventually the new storylines converge and things pick up. When we meet the old faces, you see real character development. But that good feeling can't quite erase the tedium of the previous chapters.

As with book 1, this ends in such a way that you don't need to continue, and despite there being a third and final book, this is where I will stop as well.

i need more of these books!!

l loved The Gutter Prayer, but the author takes the grounding of that novel and expands on it wholesale. The possibilities of the next book are wide open and I for one will pre-order the damn thing asap. write, damn you, write!

Another excellent installment from Hanrahan

A great continuation to the Black Iron Legacy series. Multiple threads skillfully woven. Beautiful story.
