This is book two of the Obsidian Chronicles. It starts with a bang and keeps moving at a fast pace. Arilian, now known as Lord Obsidian continues his quest of vengeance. He discovers that passion and revenge are not necessarily what he really seeks.
Arlian seems to develop a more mature conscience in this book. He also turns some friends into enemies and some enemies into friends. The interpersonal relationships have a duplicity or perhaps complexity that provides a thought provoking assessment of Dragonhearts.
There is plenty of action and violence with a great deal of soul searching.
I look forward to reading the final volume in the trilogy.
I recommend it.

Dragon Weather review of book one.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
