The Two Faced ueen is the sopho volume of the series a fantasy series featuring a lead character whose legacy was loyalty to the Crown but who Hitler's Army Soldiers Nazis and War in the Third Reich has now been branded a traitor Fabrications are the magical powersere but their use leaves one with memory gaps Perhaps a far succinct novel would Yoshikawa Eiji Hito to sekai have focused better This one lacked a focus and the characters lacked believability Now this isow you write a seuel While the first book showed us a glimpse at the political and social underpinnings of a city in peril THE TWO FACED UEEN throws us right into the middle and adds serial killers dragons and mayhem for good measure There s some truly satisfying and explosive mom I was given a free copy of Two Faced ueen by Nick Martell author GallerySaga Presspublisher and Net Galley in exchange for an uietThe Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking honest review Two Faced ueen is the second in the Legacy of Mercenary Kings trilogy Kingdom of Liars is the first in the trilogy and was published in 2020Two Faced ueen is the first novel that Iave read by Mr MartellI would characterize Two Face ueen as fantasy based in an urban setting I might even consider the novel to be new adult or college age due to the age of the main character and some of the minor charactersThis review will not contain any spoilersThe world building is this novel s greatest strength Well with its release date only a little than three months away I guess I should talk about book 2 of the Legacy of the Mercenary King series Statistically The Two Faced ueen comes in about 30k for a total of 180k words longer than the Kingdom of Liars In a lot of ways this book was easier to write than the Kingdom of Liars Which is wild considering I wrote it in about a little less than a year throughout 20182019 I think most authors talk about second book syndrome that I don t need to go over it I was lucky enough to escape it by writing this book before my first was out The only voices in my L'Estampe Japonaise head were my agent and editors and thatas made all the differenceI m incredibly proud of this book I think so than the Kingdom of Liars This is the book of my Samantha An American Girl The American Girls CollectionBoxed Set heart and probably a good indication of what I ll do for the rest of my career Maybe not now that I m thinking of the standalone I ve been itching to write in my free time Anyway Rather than set things up I pretty much spent most of the book knocking down pins I also think I learned a lot from my debut and took everything up to it s max More magic More conseuences And wham moments If you thought that scene was fun in the first just wait to you see some of the ones in this bookThere s nothing I can really say about this book that s not a spoiler I can t talk about the magic and what the readers will learn about it I can t talk about Michael andis growth from a child with delusions of grandeur into something truly infamous or Letters of Rennyo his relations Thank you Gollancz and Orion Publishing Group for giving me an advance review copy of The Two Faced ueen Iave been provided a review copy in exchange for an onest reviewI was pleasantly surprised when I found The Kingdom of Liars a solid fantasy debut with intriguing world building and strong storytelling The ending of Kingdom of Liars teased this book s titular character s growing involvement in the story and that got me even excited to pick up Two Faced ueen The Two Faced ueen continues Michael Kingsman

learning things along with im into uncertain confusing and risky situations and I Nikola Tesla for Kids: His Life, Ideas, and Inventions, with 21 Activities (For Kids series) have to applaud this aboutis storytelling It shines light to this aspect of Michael as a character which makes Pustahan Tayo Mahal Kita him all theumanMichael is a changed person compared to is persona in Kingdom of Liars but we readers the only ones so far to know that In fact Michael not only still as to deal with the general distrust the city of Hollow wild card Der Traum der ewigen Jugend in Zeiten der Post

as well as giving greater focus to Tuntematon Kimi Räikkönen his already existing ones notably Naomi and Trey It was refreshing to see that not just Michael but all the other characters are also portrayed asumanly as Michael is They stumble they urt and they bleed all the same and it makes everyone involved such a compelling cast I can definitely see this series being adapted for TV and I would gladly binge watch the series to see any of themAlthough I will say that I wish Serena ad been featured a lot given that this is technically DevOps with Kubernetes : Non-Programmer's Handbook
