The Shadow at the Gate by Christopher Bunn review

The Shadow at the Gate (The Tormay Trilogy)
4 stars

The Shadow at the Gate is the second book of the Tormay trilogy by Christopher Bunn. The adventure continues to follow Jute, Severan, Levoreth, and Ronan as they deal with the coming Dark. There are some interesting moments detailing the creation of the world and the origin of the Dark. There is also an explanation on the magic system that works in his world. In Shadow at the Gate many of story lines from The Hawk and His Boy are coming together, building towards the climax that will be found in book 3. A few of the minor characters from the first book get to step up into more prominent roles and more is revealed about the thieves guild. The story continues to be well written and enjoyable with a solid flow. This book has an open ending that really helps build anticipation for the third book in the series.

  2. I have heard that the best way to say thanks is with a fresh baked pie (peach) lol. Seriously I love reading all these books and the least I can do is write a review.
