Allmänna fakta



A tuyo is a young man left to appease a victorious army and signal a commitment end current hostilities.
This is an adventure featuring a 19 year old nomadic warrior. The book is also a deep delve into trust and the ethics of power, pitting two powerful sorcerers against each other. The protagonist is on the squeaky clean side, and I'm not a fan of the emphasis on giving/accepting physical blows as discipline and dispute settling, but that seems to fit the culture of the nomads. The world is definitely not quite fantasy standard geography, seemingly banded into north steppe, grading to middle savanna to southern desert with jackal headed inhabitants.
The moon and sun seem to have some agency in their movements.

I loved the 1st book, but am finding that this one has middle-book syndrome. Perhaps i'm not far enough into it, but I've put it down for now.

And obviously picked it up again at the right time. There IS a bit of middle book syndrome, but it's well worth plodding thru the 'set up for finale' pieces. If you're gonna do the series, wait for the final book since it's so close to release, as now I'm desperate to know what happens.

I was very, very, very disappointed by this book. I couldn't get into it at all after repeated attempts and finally gave up at the 35 page mark.

The sequel to, or rather, the second half of, Invictus: Captive (they don’t stand alone!) is tense and twisty and, despite all the complications the characters face, resolves satisfactorily.

It is particularly tricky to say anything really without spoiling Captive. I enjoyed how Crisis reversed some of the dynamics (somewhat), and brings on-stage characters who we only heard about in the previous book.

I finished it, and immediately reread Captive.
