    1 thought on “Of Limited Loyalty

    1. Now my biggest issue with the first book in this series was that, basically, while it was good it wasn't very original or complex. Basically the Seven Years War (as we call it over here the French and Indian War) with zombies and a "not-dragon." This book, however, is not only a more fully realized fantasy world based on that era instead of just being that era "plus," but the addition of a wholly non-human villain means that any ideological conflict has to happen within one side and within the c [...]

    2. The story wasn't bad and continued the interesting world without being a repeat of the first one. It did get racy enough that I skipped over several parts. I've enjoyed his other books much more.

    3. Worse than the first. I skimmed whole sections in the middle. Poorly written, poor plotting, illogical in places, definitely has boring passages. Not recommended.

    4. Great second book in the series. I enjoyed the further exploration of Mystria and magick. I cannot wait till the next novel.

    5. This is not one of Stackpole's best. It's filled with Telling, not showing, and the major action beats don't gel as strongly as they did in his other series (and even the first in this series). While the worldbuilding is fascinating (rebirth/rediscovery of magic in a fantasy colonial America), and the characters are interesting and sympathetic (if a little on the 'Mary Sue' side of competence), the story takes a long time to get where it's going, and it's a very meandering path. There are two bi [...]

    6. An ok book but the constant God bothering, espeaically in the first two thirds of the book does let the book down because it gets in the way of the real story. I would have liked it better as well if the book had focused a bit more on character development instead of preaching. I do get the impression that it pokes fun at the Mormon church but even that doesn't make the God bothering easier to read. A fantasy which was less reliant on history might have worked better. If the author had been anyo [...]

    7. Another well done book. I'll admit for a bit early on in the book that I was worried that the author was turning Mystria into a completely unfamiliar fantasy world instead of colonial North America with a twist but it all comes back together in the later pages and I was very satisfied with the ending including a "Holy ___!" twist and a couple of unresolved strands leaving you eager for the next book which Michael Stackpole needs to hurry up and produce!

    8. Another excellent installment of the Crown Colonies series. Shame that there hasn't been another once since. Both the characters and the world were interesting and engaging, not to mention the story itself.

    9. A very enjoyable bit of fantasy. This second book takes the opportunity to make the world more unique, with far more departure from colonial history. Overall I greatly enjoyed this book, and found the ending to be very powerful.

    10. I quite enjoyed the first book in this series, and this one lives up to expectations. An interesting, quasi-our Earth / history to give you a good sense of place and time, but enough fantastical thrown in to make it thoroughly elsewhere / when.

    11. A really fun ride. I thought the final battle would be a bit more involved, but it was very satisfying. I can't wait to see what's next for the people of Mystria, although I'm really feeling sorry for Owen Strake! Geez, guy can't catch a break.
