    One thought on “The Dagger of Adendigaeth”

    1. Great sequel! If you haven't caught on yet, then let me fill you in: this is a fantasy series that you should read. This is an indie book that delivers blockbuster epic fantasy at bargain basement prices. Excellent world building, interesting magic system and an array of well developed characters. The scope of this series can be a bit overwhelming at times but it isn't difficult to follow. Besides a few editorial mistakes common in indie books, this book is spot on. There are a very many POVs in [...]

    2. Okay, so I'm a little biased, but Book 2 in my series A Pattern of Shadow & Light is, in my estimation, even more exciting than Book 1. I feel justified in saying this because first and foremost I write to entertain, and I'm one of the pickiest readers around.Find out if you're a piece or a player - read Cephrael's Hand: A Pattern of Shadow & Light Book One and then dive into The Dagger of Adendigaeth. If you love epic fantasy, you won't be disappointed.

    3. Find the full review on The LUV'NV blog, here.I read and reviewed the first book of A Pattern of Shadow & Light for a blog tour and immediately picked up book two because I was stunned by the author's talent and had to continue living in the world she created. It's that enrapturing. As usual, I started a book with high expectations and anticipated disappointment. The Dagger of Adendigaeth wasn’t as good as the first book. To be honest, it was better. I’ve never been able to say that with [...]

    4. How does one begin to review a book such as The Dagger Of Adendigaeth without falling back upon much wielded cliches. To say that it is epic and fantastical would be a suitable place to begin, to say that in turning the last page left me bereft of a good friend would be a fitting place to end, whilst in between a magic lingers still.I have always been a staunch fan of fantasy fiction for the escapism it offers and the breadth of tale that might be woven, yet in recent years I have found the genr [...]

    5. Even better tan the first.This book Kicks off right were Cephraels Hand ended with Prince Ean val Lorian deciding to become a player in the Great Game by throwing in and teaming up with the infamous Fifth Vestal, Bjorn van Gelderan the most dangerous man in the the world, to begin his Training Montage.Trell the Tedious is still coming to terms with his past and the need to look to the future as he tends to the injured Alyneri who he finds himself becoming increasingly entangled with. Alyneri str [...]

    6. I jumped on purchasing this book right when it came about before it was even announced. I had been watching the month of October for when it was released and put it on my kindle as soon as possible. As with most great fantasy I was compelled to read it, to be caught up in the story line and the intricate workings of the world that Melissa McPhail had created.Dagger is a great continuation of Cephrael's Hand. Here we learn the Laws of Patterning, the Esoterics and the underlying philosophical vie [...]

    7. Cephrael's Hand was amazing. I loved every word of it. Reread it more than once. And waited a long time for the sequel. The dagger is great. Well written, with good and strong characters. Some you love. Some you hate. But in the end they all fit the pattern Melissa has a style of writing intertwining fantasy with philosophy in a way it keeps you hooked. It is relaxing yet daunting and back to relaxing. Like Yoga. Like Zen. Like life. It is always about choice. Good or bad. I read book two in a c [...]

    8. I love this book the second time around as much as, if not more than, the first time I read it. If I could take everything I love and all the feels I've felt in all the books I've read and then find it in a series, it would be this one.

    9. Following from the events of Cephrael's Hand, Melissa McPhail weaves intricate patterns of intrigue and mystery, hope and despair as time and events in Alorin march inexorably on. In The Dagger of Adendigaeth ("Dagger"), Prince Ean val Lorian throws in his lot with the traitorous Fifth Vestal, Bjorn van Gelderan, positioning himself as a player in the game of Kings. Trell of the Tides is coming to terms with his past and trying to reconcile it with his future. The Fourth Vestal, Raine D'Lacourte [...]

    10. Three because the plot was good but all the romances felt forced and over the top. Not to mention the only LGBT relationships are all non consensual and the 'evil' characters are the only ones. I doubt I'll be continuing this series.

    11. Pages: 559Time to read: 5 Days until post on Friday – I’m happy to announce I’m on page 268! So I should definitely finish on time.Ability to read 150-ish pages a day? – apparently I’ve still got itAt the beginning of pretty much every fantasy book I read, I have the dreaded – OH GAWD – ‘I’m going to have to learn a whole new language to read this thing & how many characters are there?!’In this case, I got that feeling, as predicted. However, by Chapter 6, I’d figured i [...]

    12. This book, like the first, is absolutely magical. If you've finished the first and are on the fence about continuing the series, or are wondering if you should start in on Cephrael's Hand, I highly encourage you to dig in! If you have ever liked a fantasy novel or story, you will love these books--and I found that this sequel was even more intense and interesting than the first. And that was already a hard act to follow!I have fallen so in love with Melissa's panorama of fully-fleshed-out charac [...]

    13. This series is very reminiscent of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. The magic systems are nearly identical. The protagonist Ean is a hero of lost ages reborn Very much like Rand from Wot. And yet despite the fact that these series are almost telling the same exact story, I still gave Melissa's book 4 stars. Why? Because she is doing a better job of it than RJ even came close to doing.Let me just throw in a disclaimer that I despise the Wheel of Time books (and have not read all 14.) Wh [...]

    14. McPhail just keeps getting better. The Dagger of Adendigaeth builds magnificently upon the foundation laid in Cephrael’s Hand. The world gets more complex, the tale gets more compelling and in a strange way becomes even more solid and believable. By the time I had finished reading the book I found myself believing in elae, the Malorin’athgul and the Returning. This is fantasy at its best spanning across time to take its place among the greats. My only criticism – and I paid for the book so [...]

    15. If anything, this book was better than the first. The characters have come into their own, the stories are more entrenched, I've become more invested in the whole thing. Sorta Spoilers????I have only one complaint. I'm never really afraid for a major characters life. I get that they are 'Players' and are kinda important for storyline, but I have no fear. I hate to compare to George RR Martin, but one thing you never had with his books was a feeling that, it'll be OK. It makes for a harsher read, [...]

    16. I'm so glad the third book is out so I don't have to wait to delve back into the world of Alorin. These books and the characters are quite addicting.The second book in this series was even better than the first. You know the players now and the mystery gets deeper and darker as they continue on their paths. Truths are revealed, but the author makes you work for them, and you'll be happy you did.There were some amazing characters that challenged me quite a bit, namely Pelas. I so wanted to hate h [...]

    17. Absolutely awesome book! I just HAD TO HAVE it after I finished the first book so I immediately hunted it down on kindle and downloaded it when I finished book 1.So glad I did.I love how you can see how everything is slowly coming full circle, in a very round about, long, action packed way.I love all the characters, although sometimes I'd get so hooked on one character that when the chapter ended and the next chapter was about a different character I'd get frustrated as I just wanted to carry o [...]

    18. Loved the first book, but this one just dragged on for me. I really didn't care about Kirin's [sp? I listened to the audiobook] story, and the whole 'sexy/bondage times with the prophet' stuff was just lost on me.Ian's training took way too long, and don't be me wrong, i love a good training montage, but it was just so drilled into minutiae of some fantasy magical system, it just reached a breaking point for me.Again, loved the first book, but this one just didn't do it for me.

    19. I have just finished reading Dagger after going through Cephrael just prior and I am so glad I found these treasures. The world, the characters, the mystery, the emotions, everything just pulls and tugs and wars within you just as the battle between good and evil rages on the pages. The worst thing about two ending is that I have to WAIT for book three. To say this was a good book is a serious understatement!

    20. Enjoyable readThis is the second book and as such is a tweener. It just sets the stage for what is going to happen in the next book. It was a bit long, there are only so many times you can reread the same drama of what a character is going thru. I just wanted it to move on. But overall have enjoyed the story of the first two books and will read the third.

    21. This series is so unbelievably good - I can't believe I haven't heard more about it. The characters are fantastic and the plot just keeps twisting & turning. For such long books, they just really keep your interest piqued with every chapter, and I couldn't put this book down. I can't wait to get the next book so I can see how my favorite characters are faring.

    22. This author has a vast vocabulary that she utilizes well :) I enjoyed the writing style and having to stop from time to time to look something up :) Sometimes, we need to pause and learn a new word or two.

    23. This second installment in Melissa's epic tale was spell binding. I was hooked from the very beginning. I found myself developing bonds with many of the characters. There are certain loathsome fiends that I hope in the third book find the justice they deserve!

    24. I loved this book! I love the story. I like how I still haven't figured out how it will end. This book is a great sequel. I'm getting more involved with the characters. I like how the story is making the characters blossom and grow. Can't wait for the third book.

    25. Absolutely loved this book! I've finished the book over 3 weeks ago and can't get the realm or kingdoms out of my head. Amazing characters and story line. Melissa McPhail is an ingenious author. I look forward to a book 3.

    26. I am in love with this fantasy series! McPhail is an amazing writer who creates chatacters that you instantly connect with, a story line that throws twists and turns that you never saw coming and an intense desire to keep reading. I await book three, which I will consume the first day I have it.

    27. Another excellent book in this series. Even better than the first! And I'm told the next one is even more amazing.A lot happens in this book, and I really love the interactions between Alynaire and Trell, though I wish that section had moved faster. And I also loved the interactions between Tannis and Pellas. And of course, the reveal at the end! (Although I was expecting something like that after everything with Trell but it was well done.) Yes, there are some places that could use more editing [...]

    28. Hmm this is starting to be a bipolar series for me.I love the main story (and the scope of it) and most of the character, but I am not a big fan of the writing overall. Lots of event progressions seem so contrived you can't help but sigh sometimes.Also either I've missed something in the first book, or the history of the world and past crucial events are not well explained or retold. You hear bits and peaces here and there, but no the whole picture. I guess that might be intentional, but then I [...]

    29. This book is the second part of a fantasy series (4 books currently with final book on the way) with multiple, interwoven story lines that encourage character investment without giving everything way at the beginning. Some moments are predicable, but that makes the series a comfortable read. Similar in breadth to GoT, but with more fluid prose. Not a series I expect to become obsessed with, but one I will reread as soon as I finish.

    30. This was such a great continuation to the story! I liked how the characters who previously had smaller storylines got their own larger stories in this book, especially Tanis and Alunari. The divergent story lines of Trell and Ean are still killing me though, and I can't wait for them to finally meet. Nick Podehl was a great choice as narrator for this story as well. I loved it!
