Beth's Review: A Heretical Divide (Of Hate And Laughter #2) by Serban Valentin Constantin Enache
Author Provided Copy
Released: August 25, 2014
Genre: Epic, Dark Fantasy
Length: 293 pages
A Heretical Divide picks up right where An Empire Of Traitors left off. The Inquisition proves itself a hydra of murderers and schemers. The ram's war in the Winterlands gets mired in betrayal, and the hawk's vengeance comes to the devil's home under sorcery and ploy. Even with a new emperor, the Sun Throne's vassals are still brewing; each house following its own petty interests. Death's breath looms upon the weak and strong, upon country and sovereign. The princes of ruin have many servants upon the earth - many souls to claim by storm and blood.
Four Boundless Stars
I was offered a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the second book of the series; I read An Empire Of Traitors first, and this one picks up right where book one left off.
A Heretical Divide is full of excellent writing, with clear imagery, and action packed suspense. The dialect is a bit “Shakespearean,” but it is understandable. The characters are well developed; book two gives readers a more extended understanding of each character than book one did. I got to know, and like them much better.
Overall, I loved A Heretical Divide, book two of the Of Hate And Laughter series; it’s a 4 Boundless Star book for me.
