Overview

Fantasy author David Dalglish continues his series of the half-orc brothers, whose struggles will soon bathe the land of Dezrel in demon fire...

Five hundred years ago, brother gods devastated their world with civil war. When they were imprisoned, their conflict ended without a victor. Centuries passed while their followers secretly continued the war, a war that will soon have an end.

The gods have found their paragons.

------

Book Description:

Their prophet dead and their home lost, the half-bloods Harruq and Qurrah Tun form a strained alliance with a band of mercenaries outside the city of Veldaren.

As the brothers and their allies wage a private war against powerful thief guilds, forces greater than them all threaten to tear them apart and ruin any hope for a better life.

Harruq must defend his family at all costs, for Qurrah's love of a girl with a shattered mind and the power of a goddess may doom them all.

THE COST OF BETRAYAL by David Dalglish
The death prophet returns, and the disloyal will suffer.

------

    Still going great

    The second book is a continuation af the amazing story-telling-talent the author showed us in his first book. In this book we meet more characters as broken and lost the brothers, as well as others trying thier best do help the lost anti- heros. It delves a bit further into the madness of the lost souls, and so is a bit darker, but still well worth the time to read it.

    very highly do I recommend

    in a word, WOW!!. book 1 was good but this is better. I am really enjoying this series and was surprised to read in the author's notes that this is a 5 book series. Am definitly going to try (key word) very hard to pace myself & make the other books last since I couldn't seem to stop reading this one & might've read it a little fast. I really enjoy how the David Dalglish puts enough detail in describing a scene or the story. He reminds of another author whom I really enjoy, David Eddings. short version, this is a darn good book and you won't be disappointed

    Great book! Definitely way more involved than the first.

    This series is turning out to be better than I expected. While the first installment was good, I wasn't quite sure if it was enough to draw me into the series. I gave it a shot and bought the second book and was pleasantly surprised. It delves much more deeply into the characters, fleshing them out nicely. Aside from the necessary corniness involved in developing characters this deeply, it was a better book than the first and now I must continue the series to the end.

    Very highly recommended, a must have series (so far)

    This is the second book in the half-orc series and I must say that David Dalglish has put together a remarkable series thus far. The brothers Tun are an enigma, but demonstrate that people can change. Even Half-orcs who have been reviled all of their lives. Dalglish develops his characters very well, although there was a bit of corn in this installment (which I personally enjoyed). The story moves along at fairly quick pace and there is enough action to keep you interested and turning the pages. We see that even the evil Qurrah has a bit of a heart at times.
    I highly recommend this series thus far. I am interested in seeing if Dalglish does as many writers of series do and that is start repeating themselves...

    Top notch story

    This is not your usual wizard, thief, knight, paladin, mage, elf, dwarf, demon, storm the castle, kill de dragon, save the princess story. Nope, the heroes are not the good guys in shining armor; blood, mud, guts, veins hanging in their teeth, and a great story make these books highly enjoyable.

    The 2nd book is okay.

    I read the first & liked it so much I got the next. I was really excited to see where this was gonna go. It was okay but was like most other books, one brother becomes good & the other evil. I was really hoping to see how he was gonna keep the brothers together instead of the typical brother vs brother. I will check out the 3rd to see what happens.
    For the author: I was suprised that Tes would condone any harm to the child considering she herself knows she is broken. I was also disappointed that she didn't realize that Vex/Kar was behind the child's death once she met him, considering her abilities. For Q. I was hoping that he would continue to be "smart" or "logical" why would he go to "Kar" when all that god could do was "cause" madness, you're looking for a cure not a cause. I was suprised that he didn't try "Ash" or "Cel" since they have "healing". Since Tes is supposed to be "Cel" I would have thought he would have turned more to the Goddess. I was disappointed that Q was becoming the typical "evil" guy, he seemed smarter than that.

    Great Series

    I've read all the ones that are currently published, and I must say this is a great series. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that Barnes and Noble only has it for the Nook, and not a hard copy

    A Powerful Sequel

    The second in this series brings yet another epic, mind-blowing novel. In the same range as the first, the author continues to wow readers.
