After reading the first book in the Hero’s Arc series, I was excited to pick up the second. And I wasn’t disappointed.
It was nice to see some more of the characters and watch them grow, and I also enjoyed the further development of the world.
I like Forster’s writing style, and especially the humour he brings to his books. It makes them enjoyable and flow really well.
There were a few points where I was unsure as to where the plot was going, but it all evened out again, and became a generally good plot.
Aereon has found the Creators.
He’s crossed seas and mountains to find them, tangled with dwarves and ogres along the way, finally had to tangle with an irate yeti to rescue them and now they tell him that they really weren’t in any great need of help.
As far as they are concerned, they were getting on just fine before Aereon showed up. In fact, now they have King Victarian searching for them, all thanks to Aereon’s mouth.
The trio, along with two dwarves, Volris and Silvor who have joined their party, must move. Aereon must get the Creators back home and fulfil his duty. Local woodsman, Lars, has agreed guide them through Oak’s Wood, but even he cannot know what lies in wait for them within.
