Whisper of Venom (PDF)
This series just gets better and better The plot advances and so does The Threat Level I threat level I t wait to start The Spectral Blaze An excellent book but like the rest of the Byers novels I ve read the editor seems to be a bit unclear on grammar rules Aside from that the story was fantastic and the final confrontations were very thrilling I m glad to see that the series will be continuing beyond the original trilogy Aoth Gaedynn and the others are great characters and I particularly love Medrash and Balasar It s a very interesting story the uality of the writing is not so good at times I love the way the battles develop and are described at a Army level of conflict Though I loved the first book in this series I ad a bit of trouble getting into this one The fact the main characters are mercenaries provides good conflict between what is good and what the mercenary company needs to do to regain a positive reputation Disclaimer If you read the review and feel there is a spoiler in it please let me know and I will remove that section Also if you Black Noir have any uestions don tesitate to ask Thank youWhisper of Venom is the second book in the Brotherhood of the Griffon trilogy The first book is The Captive Flame and the third book due out in June 2011 is called The Spectral BlazeWhisper of Venom continues right where The Captive Flame left off Aoth and the brotherhood are still battling on the borders Khouryn is still with the dragonborn Medrash and the others to battle the ash giants on the plain and Cera is looking into what The Bad Guys her god wantser to discover Some subplots involve the goings on in Chessenta with the new war Yce (Captured by Aliens hero the search for what is really driving the other group of dragonborn two love interests and other spoiling subplots you will justave to read to see Also there seems to be a larger plot that is not fully developed and as traces back to the Year of Rogue Dragons trilogy Like the first book this one also jumps around a lot but once again it doesn t detract from the storyline It as a really good pacing to it that keeps the pages turning and the reader engaged the whole time The character development is spot on and the characters make decisions based on Promise Lords of Action how they would act and notow best to move the story along or to what direction Everyone Familiar Stranger A Year Of Loving Dangerously Silhouette Intimate Moments No 1082 has their moment and even the side characters feel as much a part of the main story as the main characters This one flows just as nicely as The Captive Flame did and even with the jumps from one landscape to the next everything felt like it was supposed to be there Some Criticisms1 This one is geared towards me but when it comes to dragon names and I know theyave long complex ones at that and expect that I just wish I could get their full name only a few times and then Out of the Shadows have an abbreviated easier to pronounce one thereafter This wouldelp to make the pacing a bit better2 Luckily for me I went into reading this one right after reading The Captive Flame and so the story was fresh and I didn t Black Gotham have to worry about who was who and where things were Even though there are links to the previous book it is only done in one or two sentences and so mayave left someone who read the previous book a little off as to try and recollect who the characters wereSome Positives1 The characters were really great in this one I was able to connect with them all even the side characters Everyone Addiction has a wonderful depth to them and they develop naturally and some even in the most unexpected ways2 The way the couple of main plots are woven into the larger picture was nicely done Even though you are moved around uite a bit everything just seemed to flow smoothly from one instance to the next 3 Mr Byers penchant for u Whisper of Venom by Richard Lee Byers This is the second book in the Brotherhood of the Griffon

Ogether the internal religious battle the dragonborn were going through the war with Threskel and the intrigue of Tchazzar returning to Chessenta Everything just seemed to work perfectly When something war with Threskel and the intrigue of Tchazzar returning to Chessenta Everything just seemed to work perfectly When something Manual do guerreiro da luz happening it always felt like it belonged All in all Whisper of Venom was an exciting story and veryard to put down3 Pacing The fast pacing was one of the main reasons why the story was exciting Sure the beginning was a little rough but it still read surprisingly well Also the story never really relied on fights to make it uick in fact the fights seemed to be drawn out to Creative Alcohol Inks help develop the relationships between the characters The characters really made the story read uickly mostly because you actually liked most of them and wanted to read about them That made the story breeze by In fact when I stopped reading at some points I was amazed to seeow many pages I took down The pacing is very close to perfectSide Notes1 Map I really do believe that this trilogy needs a map insert in each novel It s really Fallin For His Thug Passion 2 hard to figure out where some of these places and locations are without a map to refer back too andaving to look on the computer is kind of distracting2 Tie Ins You may need to Carrot City have read both The Year of Rogue Dragons trilogy and The Haunted Lands trilogy to understand some of the things that are mentioned There are some things that are referenced that occur in both those novels and it would be a good idea to check them out to better understand some of the things3 Gates of Madness by James Wyatt Whisper of Venom also contains the third part of an event that is going to spread across the worlds of the Dungeons and Dragons novels The first part is found in the paperback version of R A Salvatore s The Ghost King the second part is found in Bill Slavicsek s The Mark of Nerath and the third part is found in Jeff Mariotte s City Under the Sand The final part is going to be found Lady Ruin by Tim Waggoner which is due out in December 2010 This part is titled Pandemonium and once again it s interesting However I m starting to get annoyed as to why these partsave to be in other stories and not just a novella Because trying to recall the previous installment is getting a little annoying4 Cover Art The cover art for Whisper of Venom is really good and eye catching It s a pretty cool fight scene with Aoth and Jet charging in at a green dragon with Gaedynn and Jhesrhi coming in as well However Aoth looks like a stone man But that doesn t affect the overall appearance of the cover art It s still a pretty dramatic scene Overall 55Final ThoughtsWhisper of Venom was a fun and exciting read The biggest issue with the book was the lack of reintroducing elements and plot threads from the previous book It did take sometime to recall who was who and what See What You Made Me Do happened However after you remember some of these people the books really does become wonderful The characters were theighlight of the novel They were just great Nobody felt like they didn t belong or that they shouldn t Java 8 in Action have been there The story itself was great inow it incorporated multiple storylines almost seamlessly Finally Whisper of Venom was very Weaving a Family Untangling Race and Adoption hard to put down for too long with the fast pacing You just wanted to keep reading without ever stopping All in all this a book that Iighly recommend However I would suggest you aving The Captive Flame fresh in your mind before starting Now onto the final in the trilogy Byers is a great author Each of the five books of the Griffon is a story unto itself my guess since i m only in the 3rdHowever it is also part of a much broader backstory involving dragon games and Aoth s companyThis allows the books to ave a very uniue personality but also gives Richard Lee Byers the possibility to tell an epic tale 5 books is epic without boring people to death with minor details which some books that span for 5 titles fall intoRichard is one of my favourite authors because of the amount of time e gives developing cultures portrayed in the books undead Thay Dragons dragon cabals dragonborn etc without looking cumbersome to #The ReaderThe Story Is #readerThe story is interesting and it is almost like watching a series like grimm where you ave the main plot and every episode they unfold a bit of the big picture until you get the a The Special Undercover Delivery (The Little Ad (The Little Ad(option) Agency Book 1) ha moment in the endThe characters are still superb ande manages to bring the craziness somewhat controlled to Tchazzar Jesrhi s disgust of touch is almost palpable when you read the descriptions of The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure--Without Losing Your Soul her interaction with tchazzar and you really wanna go there and punch the idiot dragon in the face feeling sorry forer being forced to play a part in the whole intrigue that might end up being too muchI feel the grifforn Company brings us some of the best DD books out there and this is a must read I really enjoyed this next entry in the series Byers really knows Randomized Algorithms Cambridge International Series on
