I loved it! It surprised me many times . . . Gray is relatable, sympathetic, and wholly likeable, and the rest of the cast was endearing. And the magic! It was a perfect mix of traditional and new. A fascinating take, really.
Rich and satisfying . . . Teintze has concocted a fascinating world, with clever twists and loops to her plotting as well as a range of believable (and deeply likeable) characters
Lord of Secrets is a fast-paced necromantic adventure. The characters are sharp, the dialogue is funny - andwow, Teintze can really write a monster! From the sadistic priest to the power-crazed wizard, from the delicate horrifying brilliance of her undead creations to the lurking, dreadful, beautiful monster at the heart of an ancient buried temple, I was alarmed and delighted at every turn
Lord of Secrets is a delightful necromantic romp through a dark and complex world with magic as boundless as it is painful, terrifying undead monstrosities, and secrets layered upon secrets which are so craftfully peeled away just in time for a bone-rattling, conclusion that all I want is the next book, NOW
Deftly plotted and great fun
Corcoran Gray is BACK - this time with even more necromancy, deranged old gods, creeping horrors, and nonstop adventure. Gray is the kind of reluctant hero wizard with a heart that I'd follow into the apocalypse and Lady of Shadows delivers just that - and more. What a fantastic read, in every sense of the word
