The premise is interesting, and the characters are almost compelling. They should be, but they're hampered by the lackluster editing and dreary internal dialogue. I'd be willing to bet that there are literally hours of wasted words of monotonous, redundant internal dialogue in this book. The characters' struggle with puritanism, morals and prejudices are extremely important to the story. I get that. But after being repeatedly hammered with it, I find that I'm simply wishing I could skip ahead to ANY type of action or substance. The author is so obsessed with the internal struggles of ALL of the characters that he often chops up the story, interrupts the time line, sidelines the plot and hijacks his own story just to get a few more licks in about how awkward everyone feels about everything ever. Perhaps early in book one this might've been useful. A reminder or three in book two would have sufficed. However, if you were to cut out all the internal struggle from this book it would be about half its length. I'm tired of swimming through mundane monologues of thought just to reach some type of story arc.

A warrior's Knowledge, Book 2 is an uplifting sequel!!
It begins where Book 1 left off. In this book plot ties made in the first book are strengthened. We get to know the characters more: some come through tribulation stronger and wiser while others completely give over to their darkest nature even knowing it leads to insanity.
I really grew to care for the characters especially Rukh and Ida.
Character development all throughout the book is strong. The chosen few that have accepted old enemies as "friends" and shared their mind with powerful wild beast slowly- through their actions and choices- begin to spread hope for a new more unified world. More and more people are asking themselves hard questions which begin opening up their heart for new ideas to take root.
I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud, cheered for those in peril and cried for those whom faced the end with courage.
Well worth a credit!
