The Barnes & Noble Review
The Devil's Armor is the stunning sequel to John Marco's The Eyes of God, an epic story of love and war that revolved around Lukien, the legendary Bronze Knight of Liiria, who fell in love with his king's wife -- and the tragic events that followed.

Although Lukien is still a major figure in The Devil's Armor story line, Marco dramatically widens his scope to include dozens of new characters and plotlines in the sequel to Eyes. Akeela, the mad king of Liiria and Lukien's former best friend, is now dead; and Lukien is living in self-imposed exile on the other side of the Desert of Tears with his friends Gilwyn Toms, the club-footed librarian turned regent; the one-armed Baron Thorin Glass; Minikin, the mistress of Grimhold; and all Grimhold's Inhuman inhabitants.

Word has spread of the healing magic of Grimhold; and people afflicted with all kinds of handicaps and diseases are making the treacherous pilgrimage across the desert in hopes of being cured. But the magic of Grimhold is preciously sparse, and there isn't enough to help everyone who survives the trek. To make matters worse, the fanatical Prince Aztar has amassed an army of desert warriors to hunt down and kill all the bands of Seekers bringing disease and sin to his desert home.

The Devil's Armor is one of Marco's finest achievements. With every new novel, the author keeps improving his already masterful storytelling craft. If this series is any indication, he will be remembered as one of the best fantasy authors of the era. Paul Goat Allen
