"In The Warrior Prophet, the second volume of The Prince of Nothing trilogy, the thrilling story of the powerful logician-monk Anasurimbor Kellhus and the apocalyptic Holy War is continued, as readers are invited further into the darkly enchanting, horrifying threatening battlescape upon which the war will be decided." "As the crusade plunges violently southward, struggling with both the enemy and internecine turmoil, the enigmatic Kellhus finds himself ever closer to the elusive goal of meeting his father, gaining further mastery of the ancient knowledge he will need for the encounter. And amid the brewing apocalypse, his swift-rising career has aroused more than curiosity from his enemies. With each step south, the challenges and perils mount, as the enigmas surrounding Kellhus and his quest blur in and out of focus."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Everything I said about Bk 1 applies here. This one has less emphasis on Kelhus (except for the very annoying end), and more to do with the pseudo-First Crusade (specifically, the Siege of Antioch). More action, less exposition. more action=better pacing. Read full review
