She is so unselfish with her fighting talents and uses every opportunity to push people away who are trying to help her because she does not want them to get hurt, or worse.

Una evolución constante es lo que encuentra el lector en esta segunda parte, no es para nada un puente hacia el tercero. I do admit that shorter chapters mean a faster reading pace to me but some could've definitely been longer. By this, I mean that Gwynne is emulating what one of my favorite authors and series of all time did, and that is Joe Abercrombie's style on Sand dan Glokta and Jezal dan Luthar in The First Law trilogy. I did not like her in the first book, well, I was just bored reading her PoVs the most and I wasn't interested in her arc at all. On the other hand, some chapters could've been removed especially in the first half since they didn't add much to the story, or at least should've been summed up and combined with another chapter.Any authors who include this section in their books have a bigger chance of me reading their sequel ASAP rather than putting them on a backlog until their series is completed first.

My second series, of Blood and Bone, is set in the Banished Lands, the same world as the first series. Considering her relatively older age, prowess, and expertise in war, she was already ahead in wisdom (when she's not too pissed, at least) compared to many other characters in the series. When we die, it does not take long for us to go back to the ground, to become what we were, once the spark of life has left us.

I am happy to say that The Hunger of the Gods is close in quality to TFATF and it is is the first book to get 5 stars from me in 2022 after reading almost 60 books! Consequently, the themes of loyalty, determination, morality, family, courage and leadership are at the forefront in this book! The story is told through multiple POVs like the first book and the author makes them all intriguing and intertwined in a way that made me think a bit too much about his writing process.

First, and most importantly, it was actually gripping and I couldn't put the book down, especially in the last 30%. John Gwynne's books are always difficult for me to review because so much happens, the characters are really complex (in a good way) and there's often a rich and detailed history to his tales that are hard to encapsulate in a short review. In my opinion, the best fantasy novels have very little to do with the actual fight scenes and everything to do with the characters' personal journeys. I also have to thank my friends, I probably wouldn't have read this book without them since they decided to buddy read this book and I decided to join them. Elvar, on the other hand, is taking the Battle-Grim across the land to carry out her blood promise, and Varg is helping his team find Vol.Colin Mace does a really great job narrating this, and he gets across that build of tension to a great crescendo of an ending. My favorite up to this point is The Faithful and the Fallen series which still remains my favorite quartet of all times. En este punto ya he comprobado que Gwynne tiene la costumbre de darme de lo mejorcito en batallas que he leído. The following three books in the series - Valour, Ruin and Wrath, were all shortlisted for the David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novels of 2014, 2015 and 2016, with Wrath winning the 2017 BookNest Awards for Best Traditionally Published Novel. Overall it was good but has some noticeable flaws and I still want to see this story to its conclusion.
