Chaos and darkness approach
We are back in Voulhire, where a sword is not always the best way to protect yourself and magical misery is so abundant, it is almost like currency.
We are Voulhire: Someone Else's End by Matthew Tysz
After a month in this new world, Galen's mind had finally had enough time to settle. Voulhire is not all as it seems on the surface and Galen's just beginning to realize this. Who is this Emperor of Sleep and where are all the humans going?
Through pages of nerve-wracking, knuckle-whitening action we follow Galen to the capital, where he intends to find out just how Voulhire became so powerful. Destructive spell power and exciting swordplay are intertwined time and time again to help Galen and his brave companions fight off the perilous threats that await them.
While Galen is on his quest for answers, not all is right in Virko. Security has been reinforced The king was attacked, many of his knights wounded, some fatally by an unknown assassin. The city begins to close ranks, but could it all be for nought? It may be too late.
Galen and his companions come together in the nation's capital when a violent monster threatens the town. Bloodshed, pain and evil rained down upon everything in its path. Galen and his men have no choice but to fight. This is Voulhire though, and nothing is ever painless. The losses, the destruction, the chaos surrounds them. Was it all in vain?
The next book will hopefully have the answers we seek after being left wanting more answers, more justice and more of Voulhire. The book is a very easy read, the pages turn themselves with effortless style and incredible action. There is a small amount of vulgar language, which adds to the style and is no way used excessively. The author has a style that is reminiscent of other teen fiction, while still being accessible and deep enough for the adult reader.
The story is a thrilling, gripping read right until the end, which just leaves the reader wanting for more. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be professionally edited and the author has a habit of going from third to first person. While it did not ruin the story, it did at time make it much more difficult to stay in the moment. The spelling errors are abundant and it seems spell checker played a few funny errors changing words throughout. Because of this the book gets a solid 4 out of 5.
