    One thought on “The Keep of Fire”

    1. In this second book of the Last Rune Series Travis Wilder has returned to Castle City trying to live his old life as a bar owner again. But soon enough he discovers a new threat and is stalked by two rivaling organizations, the Seekers and Duratek, who both want him to work with them (but for different reasons)and tell them about his otherworld experiences. Everything starts to get downhill again when a burnt man shows up at his saloon door whispering mysterious words and his partner Max starts [...]

    2. Okay, this is another 3.5 stars. I need this series to turn it up a notch, so I can finally give the full 4 stars without reservation, cause I am enjoying it!The problem is, that it's really slow. The characters take ages to find their way to each other again (not to mention that it took over 100 pages to even change the POV in the beginning) and then they travel and travel and travel. For ages. It's not boring exactly otherwise I wouldn't be able to read 600+ pages in two days, but sometimes yo [...]

    3. The good:- The characters are engaging and interesting, for the most part, and feel like real people I can care about.- Despite the annoyances outlined below, I still want to know what happens next and how things all play out in the end.- I like the D&D campaign feel of the overall plot and characters, though this book felt a little weaker in that aspect than the first.The bad:- The plot itself is an archetype of fantasy plots that have been done to death and doesn't do anything particularly [...]

    4. "I liked it."In fact, I liked the last hundred pages enough that I want to say I really liked it, but I'll try and hold myself back because the last third of the book other than that was very slow and insanely badly paced compared to the first one YEAH, in this book, bartender Travis Wilder's attempt to go back to living a normal life in Earth is interrupted when a man appears from nowhere, delivers a cryptic warning, and then bursts into flames. Soon after, a plague starts to spread across Nort [...]

    5. A strong second entry in the Last Rune series by Mark Anthony. The Keep of Fire picks up several months after the last book, with Travis re-adjusting to life on Earth after his adventures in the fantasy realm of Eldh. Unfortunately for him, he can't escape for long from the other world, when a stranger shows up in his bar, utters a cryptic message, and bursts into flames. It's not long before a mysterious plague causes others to spontaneously combust, and Travis is approached by two competing gr [...]

    6. Book Two of the Last Rune series; I don't think this book is quite as good as the first. The cast and setting is continued, so you have strong characters, but the plot is weaker. We begin the story with the main character, Travis, back in his (our) world, where he is courted by two different organizations wanting to know more about his interworldly experience. There's a fair amount of drama involving these two organizations, which ends abruptly with the Travis' return to the other world. We get [...]

    7. 3.5 stars. An improvement on the first book. Some things were plainly foreshadowed in book one, and some things were unexpected. The progression along the overall story arc seems to be fairly steady, however I found the internal structure of the book to be a little bit disjointed. The minor climax at the middle of the story doesn't have a whole lot to do with the major climax at the end, so it's almost as if the two halves of the story were separate and unrelated. Still, most of the plot element [...]

    8. The third reread of this one for me. I loved the tension that built through out this book. This second novel in the series developed our main characters further, provided more back story, and even gave us a few interesting new ones. The burning plague, the prophetic stories, and of course a dragon made this book a great piece of fantasy. I love is series because I love the characters. Travis and Grace are the stars but the supporting cast makes this series so interesting, Beltan, Melia, Durge, a [...]

    9. A perfect continuation of the first novel. I fell in love even more with the world of Eldh and all the characters. Anthony was wonderful again in weaving together elements of all genres. I especially loved the quips of unintended humor from the ever droopy Sir Durge. This series is definitely a very compelling story. (view spoiler)[ I was excited to finally see something happen between Beltan and Travis at the end of the book, and look forward to see where it goes in the next book.(hide spoiler) [...]

    10. Just as good as the first book! We get to know more about Travis & Jack; Grace is happy in Eldr with Aryn as her best friend. Falken & his band have a mission ; to find & stop the Burning Ones. Oddly enough, Travis has been pulled back to Eldr to find out the same thingodd things are happening at home and they are related.

    11. POSTPONED TILL I AM BACK WITH THE REST OF THE SERIES.I cannot read further without needing more, this series is a great great great addiction. (I remeber HATING to wait for the next one to be translated when I first read them. It was awful and brilliant at the same time.) I have to stop because I cannot get my hands on the other books, but it hurts. They engulf me, make me more than I am.

    12. SFPL is missing the first book of this series, but I've read the third before, so I sort of remembered the dramatis personae, but I recommend reading the first if you can get it. A little too mawkish at times, but it's a cut above the usual "people from our world go to a magic realm" story.
