Today I have a special treat for you all . Today we are going to review the second book in a dark fantasy series that is becoming one of my favourite series out there. LAMENT OF THE FALLEN (The Last Bucelarri book 2) by Andy Peloquin.
The Hunter of Voramis is no more.
Alone with the bloodthirsty voices in his head, fleeing the pain of loss, he has one objective: travel north to find Her, the mystery woman who plagues his dreams and haunts his memories.
When he stumbles upon a bandit attack, something within urges him to help. His actions set him at odds with the warrior priests commanded to hunt down the Bucelarii.
Left for dead, the Hunter must travel to Malandria to recover his stolen birthright. There, he is inexorably drawn into direct conflict with the Order of Midas, the faceless, nameless group of magicians that holds the city in a grip of terror. All while struggling to silence the ever-louder voice in his mind that drives him to kill.
From feared assassin to wretched outcast, the Hunter's journey leads him to truths about his forgotten past and the Abiarazi he has pledged to hunt. His discoveries will shed light on who he really is…what he really is.
Fans of Joe Abercrombie, Brandon Sanderson, and Brent Weeks will love the Hunter…
You will fall in love with the Hunter . He has left Voramis and is on the way to finding out about his past. He is traveling north to find the woman that haunts his dreams as he tries to silence the voices in his head . Along the way he encounters bandits who attack and bring out the urge in the hunter to help out . Which doesn't go well for the hunter but as we all know the hunter is a survivor and will survive at any cost .
I loved the hunter in the first book but really fell for him in the second book . You see a totally different side to the hunter in this book . We get to see him as more of a person this time around . He has lost everything but is still surviving and growing . We also see him changing and fighting the demons that are in his head and only killing the bad and not killing for the sake of killing to stop the voices. He is working on trying to be a better person through out the book . Don't worry he doesn't wuss out he is still a killing machine but he is now have something to hold onto and fight for what is right in his eyes . There are so many characters that come into the hunter's life in this book. They all influence him in so many different ways in good ways and in bad ways.
Bardin is one of those characters that help the hunter in a good way . He is homeless poor and kind of crazy . But he takes the hunter in and helps him out to find out more about the hunters past . He is a lovable old guy that you just want to hug tight and keep safe . He and the hunter become friends and the Hunter wants to protect him and he genuinely loves Bardin. But alas when you befriend the Hunter something always happens .
The author sure took us on a rollercoaster ride through hell and back in this book. I honestly couldn't put this book down . The story just kept getting better and better with each turn of the page . I laughed and I most definitely cried in a few spots . I also stayed up way past my bed time reading this book . I love dark fantasy and I must say there is a lot of action in this book and the author keeps us on our toes the entire book . I was on the edge of my seat most of the book. So if you want a great series of books check out the hunter . If you love fantasy check them out you will not be disappointed
