    The sequel to Have Sword, Will Travel. Spoilers for that ahead. It opens with Odo and Eleanor, and Biter and Runnel, running to fight bilewolves, who are attacking two travelers and others. Sir Halfdan fights, and dies. And one traveler, they realize, is Edga -- the king who abdicated. Soon after, an Instrument (a new title) arrives to take over the role of steward. Edga with their help puts him down, but obviously, he must see to his grandson, the rightful heir, and his grandmother regent. It invo The sequel to Have Sword, Will Travel. Spoilers for that ahead.

It involves spelling, the nick in Biter, craftfires summoning creatures, a machine to control the weather, and more.

    This story put a smile on my son's face. Enchanted swords, brave children, adventure, good humour and a Dragon! What's not to like? Also, some lovely underlying messages about fairness and equality. This story put a smile on my son's face. Enchanted swords, brave children, adventure, good humour and a Dragon! What's not to like?

    This was a fun sequel to this book series. Lots of fun adventures & new characters. This isn't a lifechanging book but is a fun fantasy series and the audiobook is well done. Recommended for young fantasy readers. This was a fun sequel to this book series. Lots of fun adventures & new characters.

    First, to whoever decides on the marketing, this is NOT a book for only 10-12 year olds. That is what the clever cover seems to imply. It is, in fact, a well structured fantasy for any age up 100 or so. Very cleverly done with solid characters. Classic good vs evil and it looks like more to come!

People calling themselves Instruments are showing up and deposing the knights, usurping their authority with supposed approval of the crown. The crowned prince's regent has decided that usurping her grandson's throne sounds like a delightful idea and is slowly setting her plans in motion. Some of those being the Instruments and other new authorities she's sent out. Another is crafty assassins sent to deal with the slight danger of her brother, the former king who abdicated when he went blind. Sir Eleanor and Sir Odo, Biter and Runnel, run into the former king while dealing with some nasty magical creatures. They are then recruited by him and his guard Hundred, to see if they can deal with the regent and save the crowned prince before it is too late. But it is going to be a long and dangerous journey to the capitol and the young knights have much to learn. A good old fantasy adventure with two colorful older characters with some serious fighting skills and secret allies. I was a little disappointed because Biter isn't quite as funny in this book as he was in the first one. Runnel provides a voice of wisdom that keeps his ranting to a minimum and he's lost most of his bloodthirstiness. He does have occasional moments. I did like the addition of a little bit who can carry messages and spy for them. It was a cute new character. The places they visit were imaginative, and the door sled down a frozen waterfall scene was something I don't think I've ever even heard of in an adventure before but was quite brilliant even if it would be totally deadly. The climax had more than one element I was not expecting, and pleasantly surprised me. The epilogue in this leaves me wondering if the two authors are working on a third book. It certainly seemed like they were setting things up for a decided need for a third adventure. I'm all for more adventuring with Odo and Eleanor if that's the case. Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. Some fantasy magic fights and sword fights and run-ins with vicious wild animals. Some are injured or killed in these fights (this is mostly stated rather than shown).

    The first one was really good, it was fast-paced, it was exciting, it was humorous, the characters grew and changed, and everything was new. Everything was the opposite for this. I stopped around page 150, all they had done was walk down a road. Very little had happened, and they had run from all their challenges, when not being completely deus-ex-machina-ed out of a situation. It wasn't funny, the swords were barely in it at all.

Why do they even need enchanted swords? Hundred took care of everything anyway. All the agency was removed from our characters, while our two adult characters were wildly inconsistent with their powers and strengths. This was so incredibly boring. Three weeks to get 150 pages into a kid's book? Something is definitely wrong.

    So my sense that the first book was setting up the second really well was rewarded: the second book begins exactly where the first ended, and with minimal retelling (curse publishers for making authors do this!). I enjoyed the second book immensely, and felt that it really delivered on the promise of the first book. The characters grow nicely into their roles, the new characters are compelling and endearing, and the climax manages to match that of the first book and deliver a satisfying conclusio So my sense that the first book was setting up the second really well was rewarded: the second book begins exactly where the first ended, and with minimal retelling (curse publishers for making authors do this!).

    Hmm, I need to go back and read my review of the first book. I might be at risk of repeating myself. This book was entertaining at a juvenile level. While maintaining a simple plot with simple goals, the authors were able to maintain a storyline and set of characters that appealed to their audience. The best thing about this book is actually the epilogue. This postscript kicks off the next conflict, which was set up by both book 1 and 2. If not for that I think I would be done with this series, Hmm, I need to go back and read my review of the first book. I might be at risk of repeating myself.

    Another fun adventure with Eleanor and Odo. This time they learn more about what it means to be a "toiling knight" and the true measure of a king. Biter learns more about his past and the ending sets the stage for the next book, which I'm assuming will result in a deadly confrontation with enemies old (some very old) and new. Pretty predictable, no real surprises, but a solid sequel nonetheless. Another fun adventure with Eleanor and Odo.

    This is a fun read, but sadly never reaches the wonderful heights of much of Garth Nix's other works. It lacks that certain something that makes so many of Nix's other books so wonderful. It's a fun read, but not much else. This is a fun read, but sadly never reaches the wonderful heights of much of Garth Nix's other works.

    This wasn't as good as Have Sword, Will Travel. There is a bit of action and some useful information, but the story is slow. It wasn't as fun or humourous as the previous book. There is an open ending, so maybe there will be a third book someday. This wasn't as good as Have Sword, Will Travel. There is a bit of action and some useful information, but the story is slow.

    These books aren't masterpieces, but they're fun and adventurous. Interested to see how the story goes from here, with that ending... These books aren't masterpieces, but they're fun and adventurous. Interested to see how the story goes from here, with that ending...

    Another homerun from the master of fiction writing! I am hoping that the set-up for a part 3 will be happening soon.
