Ete fascinating unparalleled and perfect in any possible way PIECE OF ART You can find all of my reviews over at If you start only one new fantasy series this year make it Draconis Memoria by Anthony Ryan I thought The Waking Fire was one of the best books I d ever read but Legion of Flame was even betterLegion of Flame was the ultimate armchair adventure Each chapter was so good I wild card Der Traum der ewigen Jugend in Zeiten der Post Apokalypse had a difficult time finding decent stopping points and as such stayed up way too late on too many occasions to finish it Ryan ended each ofis chapters with an aggravatingly brilliant Enqute sur la noblesse hook that just begged you to keep reading so I did There was always an abundance of action adventure exploration steampunk and of course dragons Every element came together brilliantly for I ll say it again one of the best books I ve ever readIn both of these books Ryan takes you on an exploration of this world and allows you to discover its breathtakingistoriesmysteries alongside some very memorable characters This depth of discovery combined with a very Indiana Jones adventure feel is truly the magic of these novels and one of my favorite elements There s such a sense of wonder with Les Nombrils - Tome 5 - Un couple d'enfer (French Edition) his world building stuff that will truly dazzle you I can t even begin to guess whate Tuntematon Kimi Räikkönen has in store nextBoth books incorporate multiple POVs and they were all eually exciting to read about Each character was perfectly placed to give us a grand picture of what s transpiring and I triple dog dare you to pick a favorite they re all deserving of the title If forced I d say Lizanne struck a chord with me the most becauseer personality Handbook of Primary Care Procedures (Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials) has a lot of duality makinger very interesting to read aboutLet s talk about dragons for a minute The dragons are incredibly well conceived in this series So far their role DevOps with Kubernetes : Non-Programmer's Handbook has been much stronger than I d daredope it truly is a dragon book I love the varieties their importance to the The Fiddler in the Subway human populations their significance in the story and most predominantlyow well they re being represented Ryan manages to keep all the things that I think comprise great dragons while simultaneously amping them up with is own twists They re brilliant And if this wasn t already one of my favorite books for story characters and world building alone it would be for the dragonsSo because of the amazing characters seamless blend of fantasy and steampunk exciting adventures page turning plot and killer use of dragons Legion of Flame is perfection I plan to recommend it as often as I can I d like to think Berkley Publishing Group Anthony Ryan and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review an early copy of The Legion of FlameVia The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwnikihawkescom Other books you might like A strong middle book in the Draconis Memoria trilogyThe Legion of Flame is the second book in Anthony Ryan s Draconis Memoria trilogy and in my opinion it s a much better book in comparison to its predecessor The story picked up immediately after the end of the first book and almost everything about this book was much compelling to read probably because it felt like it s an epic or military fantasy in comparison to the previous "book where it was a mix of Indiana Jones James Bond and Pirates of the CaribbeanI "where it was a mix of Indiana Jones James Bond and Pirates of the CaribbeanI the reason why I liked this one is that I m already used to the settings and characters of the world The first book took me than 200 pages to finally made me interested for this one I was interested almost completely "Lizanne Continues To Be "continues to be badass female character of the series and there are some important events and incredible action scenes appening in er POV However the last alf of Rve, cl de l'identit her POV was uite unnecessary in my opinion it didn t seem toave any major importance in the main story and it s like Ryan is trying to lengthen the pages of the book Only amidst war and Exercices de style horror did I discover what it feels like to love A life without it is a barren wasted thing Miss Lethridge Clay s POV received a major improvement and became my favorite POV in the book It s inis story that we get to see tons of new information on the world building but most importantly revelations on the drake s origins and where the Blood Blessed originally came fromI ad a lot of trouble with Hile s POV in the first book and although is POV isn t boring to read any due to Elämän ja kuoleman kentältä – Sotarunoilija Aarni Suursalon vaikutelmia vapaussodasta his story converging with other important characters I still think thate didn t really need a POV For two books The Reluctant Heiress Lone Star Legacy his presence seems way overshadowed by all the other characters and ife didn t exist it won t matter to the story at all Maybe Ryan is preparing Les Osismes Peuple de l'Occident Gaulois his character for the big conclusion in the third book but for now I stand by my words that Hile is an unnecessary characterLastly there s a new POVere I can t mention the name because it will be spoilers but I found that is POV a super nice addition to the series as it brings depth and complexity The Spoiled and some of the dragon s personality and behaviorsOverall The Legion of Flame is a great seuel that builds upon the foundation The Waking Fire laid Anthony
