    I loved this book just as much as the first one And just as the first one there are a lot of nods to Middle earth here under other guise is Sting lembas bread Khazad dum the Balrog though in some ways this one is even scarier though not wreathed in flame the same way and the Straight Road But as the first one this is also very much

    I wanted to rate this higher Really I did But I can’t My low rating has nothing to do with the story and everything to do with McKiernan’s constant language swapping It makes the story hard to read when every character has his own words fo

    I picked this up from a free books shelf and found it somewhat disappointing Some of this may result from starting a trilogy in the middle but that's not itThis is a clone of The Lord of the Rings There are even scenes which reflect in detail chapters from Tolkien's epic We have hobbits under different names We

    The second book of the Iron Tower Trilogy is Shadows of Doom McKiernan definitely likes his needlessly pretentious titlesJust when I was beginning to think that the Iron Tower was merely heavily inspired by Tolkien rather than being a complete clone I have to backpedal a bit The Dark Tide actually had some events and plot elements that while not exactly the most original did definitely differentiate this story from the

    The second book in the Iron Tower trilogy the story gets better because the action picks and you get some great wholesale slaughter of the baddies The book contains a very controversial section where the protagonist et al go through the former dwarven tunnels now inhabited by a baddie of exceptional power and might The author says it is homage to Tolkien others say it is a rip offThe little inanity I see in the book is

    Look—these are silly The dialog is not great the characters are all mystified at everything and the whole thing is basically a fan written version of the Lord Of The Rings For example in this one we get the Mines of Moria and the Scourging Of The ShireBUT DESPITE ALL THAT—they really are fun And McKiernan does get you

    I enjoyed this book far better than the first but still found it hard to get through Unnecessary language and rambled paragraphs made some events of the story unclear to the point of having to re read many sentences I thought the authors approach to tell the story in a back and forth timeline style successful I found certain character experiences far entertaining than others but was still pleased with the way i

The winter had begunAt Gunnaring Gap the valiant Riders of Valon began their charge And though Challerain Keep lay in. Book two of the Iron Tower trilogy mainly focuses on Tuck and Galen as they traverse the land of Mithgar eventually finding two companions an elf and a dwarfand advancing towards the southern regions in an attempt to gather forces and communicate what is going on in the north The book begins with the plight of Laurelin who has been captured by the forces of Modru and held in the actual Iron Tower McKiernan really puts the pedal to the metal in this first chapter detailing the long harrowing journey north that a battered bruised and defeated Laurelin takes in the company of literal monsters Danner and Patrel return home in another chapter to gather the remaining forces there But the highlight is the Tolkien like journey of Tuck Galen and their two companions through the underground while pursued by enemy forces as well as their leader a Gargon which puts the fright in all A very solid read and onto book three

And Dwarves to turn the tide of doom And across the land ruled by unnatural dark freedom flickered and burst into fla. Look these are silly The dialog is not great the characters are all mystified at everything and the whole thing is basically a fan written version of the Lord Of The Rings For example in this one we get the Mines of Moria and the Scourging Of The ShireBUT DESPITE ALL THAT they really are fun And McKiernan does get you emotionally engaged with the characters But it could have been soooo much better
