Overview

Beware the dawning of a new mage…

Wydrin of Crosshaven, Sir Sebastian and Lord Aaron Frith are experienced in the perils of stirring up the old gods. They are also familiar with defeating them, and the heroes of Baneswatch are now enjoying the perks of suddenly being very much in demand for their services.

When a job comes up in the distant city of Skaldshollow, it looks like easy coin – retrieve a stolen item, admire the views, get paid. But in a place twisted and haunted by ancient magic, with the most infamous mage of them all, Joah Demonsworn, making a reappearance, our heroes soon find themselves threatened by enemies on all sides, old and new. And in the frozen mountains, the stones are walking…

Jen Williams' The Iron Ghost is the much-anticipated (by many) follow-up to The Copper Cat. It is a sequel only in that it includes most of the same characters, in the same world, though it doesn't necessarily follow-up on an 'unfinished' story. This is a good thing. This could be read as a stand-alone novel, though incidents from The Copper Cat are referred to, so it's nice to have that background. After their success in the previous book, Frith, Wydrin, and Sebastian are now known as The Blackfeather Three and they hire themselves out - solving a few problems and making a bit of money. They are on top of the world. But a nasty wizard/mage will challenge their skills. This book is difficult to read. The chapters are short in page-length, but heavy, plodding to read. There's not a lot of action, but there is a lot of movement and discussion and the short chapters prevent the reader from really getting invested in the story, characters, and action. The book doesn't feel like a book as much as it does like four novellas that feel like four novels, they were so dense with description. By the time I got half way through I just couldn't wait to get to the end - this band of characters and the adventures they had really didn't appeal to me. Looking for a good book? The Iron Ghost is the second book in The Copper Cat series by Jen Williams. It is a rehash of the first volume with little new or interesting to distinguish itself. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
