In Blood Song, Anthony Ryan introduced readers to “a fascinating world of conflicting religions and the wars fought in the name of those faiths” (Library Journal). Now Ryan’s epic tale continues as Vaelin Al Sorna discovers that there is no escape from the call of destiny…
“The blood-song rose with an unexpected tune, a warm hum mingling recognition with an impression of safety. He had a sense it was welcoming him home.”
Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus’s vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus’s grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.
But those gifted with the blood-song are never destined to live a quiet life. Many died in King Janus’s wars, but many survived, and Vaelin is a target, not just for those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do. The Faith has been sundered, and many have no doubt who their leader should be. The new King is weak, but his sister is strong. The blood-song is powerful, rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble, but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand more of its mysteries. Something moves against the Realm, something that commands mighty forces, and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a sword.

The narrator is horrible. All voices are the same which makes it hard to follow what's going on.

He completely changed the entire story in order to accommodate SJW idiots. Where Blood Song was a story of a boy becoming a man along side other boys becoming men, full of chivalry, men who fight, women who heal and teach, and good being good and bad being bad. In Tower Lord, it reads as though Anthony Ryan absolutely cannot wait to show how far he is toeing the line of jewish propaganda. His sister is now a lesbian. The new character is a lesbian. Women now fight alongside men and are touted as equally competent to them. Al Sorna loses his religion and cannot wait to interject with paltry faux-witticisms that would seem completely natural if spoken by a morbidly obese fedora-wearing 2006-2015 combative atheist, more true to call them anti-theists. If you're trying to read something to take your mind off of clown world, which Blood Song so accomplished, trust me: Give up on this abortion of a sequel. You would get just as much out of browsing tumbler. Fucking when do we revolt, and what do we do with traitors like Ryan. Narrator is ok. He's formulaic and completely lacking in any intuition but it's decent.
