Valor by John Gwynne

The Banished Lands is torn by war as High King Nathair sweeps the land challenging all who oppose him in his holy crusade. Allied with the manipulative Queen Rhin of Cambren, there are few who can stand against them. But Rhin is playing her own games and has her eyes on a far greater prize... Left for dead, her kin fled and her country overrun with enemies, Cywen has no choice but to try to survive. But any chance of escape is futile once Nathair and his disquieting advisor Calidus realise who she is. They have no intention of letting such a prize from their grasp. For she may be their greatest chance at killing the biggest threat to their power. Meanwhile, the young warrior Corban flees from his conquered homeland with his exiled companions heading for the only place that may offer them sanctuary - Domhain. But to get there they must travel through Cambren avoiding warbands, giants and the vicious wolven of the mountains. And all the while Corban must battle to become the man that everyone believes him to be - the Bright Star and saviour of the Banished Lands. And in the Otherworld dark forces scheme to bring a host of the Fallen into the world of flesh to end the war with the Faithful, once and for all. @goodreads 



More people freaking die, but of course that's to be expected right? I didn't cry though! Yay, me!

And of course I loved the book! ♥

This book starts up where the first book leaves off. Corban and the crew are on the run after the fall of Dun Carreg (where they lived). They sail across the water getting into more troubles, meeting up with new people, more deaths, etc. and so forth.

I loved when the Jehar Warriors came! I was so looking forward to reading about them. I hope to read more in the next book, but PLEASE don't kill anyone I like in that group!

Corban's sister Cywen is still stuck in Dun Carreg with the evil people because they thought she was dead, but she was not. That's not a spoiler, if you read the first book you will figure she is not dead either.

Cywen gets to learn about the evil people that are there, that killed her friends and part of her family. But, she just may have a few on her side. She also has her fathers dog, Buddai on her side and Corban's horse, Shield. I just wish she would have tried to sneak away at night. Like I said before, it all turns out for the good though. And Veradis is there, I'm hoping he will see more reason and something will happen with him and Cywen. I love him, for now at least!

The book is really good if you love epic fantasy books. There is still the God-War going on and I don't see it ending any time soon with all of the prophecies.

I'm afraid to pick up the next book and I'm going to wait a little bit because I'm afraid who or what will die next. NOOOOOO!
