Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - BOOKS - JANET HUGHES

THIS is the sec­ond book in tal­ented fan­tasy writer Dun­can Lay’s Em­pire of Bones tril­ogy. Bridge Of Swords, the first in the se­ries, ended in a breath­tak­ing cliffhanger and the ac­tion picks up al­most ex­actly where it left off.

Led by the re­luc­tant elf- in- ex­ile, Sen­datsu, the sup­pos­edly magic- less hu­mans strug­gle to fi nd a way to de­fend the coun­try they love from their in­vaders.

In this vol­ume, both the hu­mans and the elves be­gin to dis­cover that past events are not what they have been led to be­lieve. As the hu­mans search for a way to de­fend their coun­try, events back in the Sen­datsu’s Dokuzen con­tinue to un­ravel.

With multi- lay­ered plots and mul­ti­fac­eted char­ac­ters, Val­ley Of Shields is an ac­tion­packed, en­ter­tain­ing read.
