Finished 2nd part. Pretty much the same as 1st part. The dialogues, the plot even the villains are one dimensional. Hopefully, it will improve in the next part.

The search for Tylen in the closet was strange. I think fun was intended in that scene but...

Rik always said "Friends stick together" but then he went another way after saving Markus. Why? What was the smart thing he intended to do?

Another thing that bothered me was that there were too many repetitive words. An example:

Quote
"Well, I'm going with Ander first," Markus said. "After that, I don't know."

"I'll miss you if you don't come with me. I don't know. I'd kind of like to have a friend along. These other people seem great and all, but I don't really know them."

"Look. I don't know. I haven't decided yet."

The party is converged now. I hope the story will get better now.

Markus is Death Speaker. Interesting.

I like Warrick scenes. As Lu suggested in the first part, it is nice to read about his come and goes.
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Tylen:Unknown  magical powers  to himself that’s why guard couldn’t find him.

I thought chapter 25 was exciting with the inferno and berig climbing the castle.

I’m unsure on Tylen will he remain a  minor villain or will he become a good guy.
