The Warrior Prophet


I dropped out of this book after 200 of its 600 pages, and that kind of makes me sad.

I really liked the first book of The Prince Of Nothing trilogy: I read 52 books last year, and The Darkness That Comes Before was one of the 10 best.

This second installment is so much of a disappointment, I don't even feel like explaining why. I'll try anyhow, but I'll keep it short.

Bakker explains why this is such a lesser book himself, in the first sentence of the acknowledgements that precede it:

Since I had over fifteen years to write TDTCB, I really had no idea what I was getting into when I committed to finishing The Warrior-Prophet within one year.
