    • OK. I just didn't like the book. I didn't realize it was a sequel when I bought it. But I decided to read anyway. Some good ideas in the book and some decent scenes. If not for the things below, this could have been a good book. I liked some concepts but felt like the book was a patchwork of predictable and generic characters with many unexplained events, which could have been done with better development or some reason to tie them in. Lots of deus ex machina and mysterious recoveries from death [...]


    • FORMER Winnipegger David Keck returns to the rich fantasy world he created for his 2006 debut novel, In the Eye of Heaven, with an aptly titled tale of court politics and rebellion.There are no stereotypical quests in Keck's story; the main characters are driven by politics, love, financial need, desire for honour -- and they must fight for all of it.This is fantasy for grown-ups à la Guy Gavriel Kay and Stephen R. Donaldson.Keck's hero, the brave knight Durand Col, is still in the service of t [...]


    • David Keck does it again. I thoroughly enjoyed "In the Eye of Heaven," the first book in what I fear is only a duology. Keck's fantasy setting is thoroughly grounded in the medieval. There are no false modern conceits here--no one cares about the peasants and what they do. Life is knights and tourneys and kings and politics. But it's written from an absolutely grounded place. Our hero joined the retinue of his lord to earn the land and wealth he was deprived of at home. But honor still matters-- [...]


    • This sequel to In the Eye of Heaven continues the tale of Durand of Col who is a knight for Lamoric, the younger son of a Duke and their fight with the Duke of Yrlac. An all around very good book, but you really need to read the first book to understand Durand's problems and their fight against the fiendish Duke of Yrlac.Fans of swordsmen, medieval sieges and battles will find much to like in this novel.




    • Couldn't finish it. The prose just drove me nuts. Things seemed awkwardly phrased at times, then at other times too much dialogue or too much liberty given to reader assumptions. Just not for me.



    • Nearly breathlessly paced. The main character, Durand, never gets a break. I would gladly read more books in this series, but sadly thus far there appear to be only the two.
