I love the beginning! Something strange that I noticed in the first book was the fact that the youngest sister never had quoted dialogue. Her brother would speak to her and answer her questions by yet her words were never included. It was odd and stood out to me. The first chapter and last chapter of book two gave more information on her character. And because if that, book two drew me in instantly.

The pace is great! I am enjoying it much better than the first book. By that is how it works in the rising action of a plot. It also does well to describe the details of the first book, for those who have forgotten key elements or hadn't read the book in a while. It's not obvious summaries, but interesting inserts into the storyline. I think it was very well done.

I got through this book much better than book one. The storyline is fascinating for all characters. It is so creative and imaginative. My favorite part was the abilities of Kay's Sight. He is able to see several possible futures and can act accordingly. I love the moment in the heat of battle when he saw a choice before him. He could continue as one does in battle, or he could withdraw for a moment to bring happiness to a friend's future. I loved his choice and the unexpected events to follow.

I definitely have to say that this is one book I cannot guess at the plot. There are no obvious storytelling hints and even when the reader may assume a possible event to come next, another surprise is thrown in. I love that! I have read so many books, the ability to correctly guess main plot points is tiring. This book gladly leaves me clueless!

4.0 out of 5 stars This installment really gets the story cooking. 15 April 2013

Started in The Dead Held Hands the story of Kay really takes off in The Machine. I just finished it and rolled right into the conclusion in "The Temple of the Exploding Head".

Unfortunately, I don't think I could recommend this to my family and some of my friends to read because of the references to sex, sexual organs, and descriptive violence/gore. The people I associate with are mainly the conservative dress/language/content types. There are some friends I could consider recommending it to, but I feel I need to discuss their tastes in fantasy fiction first - just to make sure I don't offend them by making such a suggestion. But even with the content, I really liked it and hope readers are willing to look past some of the sexual/violent content to appreciate the fantasy world and enjoy the adventurous storyline.
