Queen of Demons
Lord of the Isles #2
3 of 5 Stars
The full title for this edition is Queen of Demons: The second book in the Epic Saga of ‘The Lord of the Isles’. The story is as pretentious as this title.
Which considering that everything in this series is big, bigger than life, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is still pretentious though.
Now, the overall plot revolves around Garric becoming Prince Garric, titular heir to the Islands. Along the way the group gets split up and faces various trials and horrors. A nice cast of side characters are served up, just waiting to be killed off, which they mostly are in various ways.
Around page 400 [of roughly 600] I realized that I was ready for the story to be over. The side journeys were continued much longer than they needed to be.
