    1. DelightfulA very fun read. Blacknail is a very interesting and different character. Very few authorship can pull off the nonhuman angle and it was done right. Having a completely different set of instincts changes how one view the world just as much as the environment we grow up in. Great storyline, shows characters growth as they experience new things. The fact that Blacknail shows that he cares for Saeter by saving his life is a huge step for him.

    2. Outstanding Everything here is professional. From the illustrations to the story, the characters, the dialogue, and to the editing. Book one introduced the characters, and a bit of the world. Book two polishes the characters a bit while introducing us more to the world. We find some new and interesting characters in a very new and interesting environment. We get a ton of action and politics, and of course we get to experience it all through the eyes of one (usually) self-assured, amoral, and hum [...]

    3. This was a great sequel. Blacknail is now a hobgoblin and must deal with the good and bad of that transformation. He comes into his powers and gets to have a lot more fun in this book. If you enjoyed the first book, this was just about everything you wanted it to be. No conclusion though. There will apparently be a book 3. This is a good thing, but there will probably be a wait. Also, as much as I tried to drag my feet, this book was over before I wanted it to be. It's great that the author does [...]

    4. Even better than the first! It's sometimes hard for series to keep up their pace after their "coming of age" beginnings, but this one got even better! Seeing things though Blacknail's evil little eyes keeps things fresh. Straughan avoids introducing too many new characters, and having a protagonist with an attention deficit ensures that we never get bogged down in exposition. Loved it!

    5. Absolutely fantastic! Enjoyed every bit. Only thing that stuck out though was the point where Blacknail saw a picture of Fang while trying to assassinate him. A "picture" seems too much like advanced tech in a time when horses, swords and the like are the rave. A painting would have been more appropriate. Nonetheless, it's 5 stars for me!

    6. I really enjoyed reading it, even though I was sceptical before reading the first book. In fact the second book was in no way behind the first one. The characters showed a lot of development (mb. except of Herad). Furthermore the book is around 200 pages, therefor you have a nice weekend of reading.

    7. This book is good too. It is different from the first though, the first is about getting stronger and smarter and this one is about stabbing people. The main character is still fun to read about though, and things progress nicely.And now for something completely different.I choose to mention this here because Scott Straughan does this a lot. What does he do? He misunderstands the purpose of a chapter. Chapters in books are there so when you reach one you can put down your book and go do the laun [...]

    8. Awesome Non Human AdventureThis story about a sewer goblin slave turned into a hobgoblin with ranger hunter skills. It shows how stupid it is for us humans to think other intelligent would think and value the same as us. This story is a good break from human drama.

    9. AmazingBlacknail is an amazing character. He is evil (he doesn't consider himself evil though) and so innocent at the same time.Really funny and an entertaining book!Watch out for his cheese tho No touching.

    10. Just as good if not better than book oneGreat story, interesting character, Can't wait to see what happens to the sick horses, our assassin will probably be right in the next book, horses are evil, wink wink.

    11. YeahPretty good. Adorable murder and whatnot. The little green monster grows on me with every book. Hopefully the next book will have even more murder.

    12. A masterpieceCity of daggers is amazing. This book has retained all the charm, mystery and humour from the last book and multiplied it by ten.

    13. Good stuffA lot of funny parts. Fun read.Can't wait for next book.I don't have much to say, but it was good.

    14. FantasticSomething unique and fun! I truly enjoyed the amoral monster of a main character and eagerly await the next book!

    15. Very entertainingThere are some great and unusual characters in this book. It's funny and highly enjoyable with an unusual perspective. If you read the fist book then read this

    16. Generally Good funIt can be rather silly at times but I do enjoy the fact that it is hard to guess where the plot is going. Some novels like this tend to over do the foreshadowing.

    17. WoahThis is phenomenal, the point of view is interesting, pacing is practically perfect. Highly recommend to everyone and I am extremely excited for the next book

    18. GreatI really like books that do a non human perspective, and this one does it very well. I can't wait for the next one.
