Sword of Truth Book 2: Stone of Tears Review
As much as I loved the Legend of the Seeker TV series (I mean it is what got me into the franchise), they diverted so much away from the books themselves. This book though has so much that happens during the course of it. I feel it has more action than the first one and we learn so much more back story that will make the firs books revelations seem trivial.
The story is really one of those great classics. I actually found myself seeing parts of this book that Harry Potter might have taken inspiration from, which is a pretty big thing. The characters, setting, plot are all interwoven together wonderfully and you actually care about what happens. This is defiantly a book that earns its “New York Times Bestseller” recommendation.
The pacing is amazing in this novel. I found myself just blasting through time wanting to know what happens next. Wither it was the action taking place, the suspense or even just the traveling; the book pulls you right in and doesn’t let you go. Writing is top notch and I only noticed some minor printing errors in the book itself.
I say pick this novel up if you liked the first. It continues the great story and throws a bunch of curve balls at you along the way. If you are interested in this series at all, I highly recommend reading these books. Just from the first and second I am sucked into this saga and I can’t wait to continue reading more about the adventures of Richard Cypher.
- As violent as the first one
- Learn a lot about the main characters in this novel
- Story you care about
- Amazing pacing even with almost a thousand pages
- Great writing
- Definitely not a kids book
