The Broken Sword (Halcyon #2)The Broken Sword by Joseph Robert Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having read the first book in this series, I was happy to return to the world that Lewis has created. This world, similar to ours but caught in an Ice Age that never ended, is strongly developed and very real. I felt that the pacing in The Broken Sword was a little more even than in the previous adventure, The Burning Sky. Lewis writes a good mixture of adventure, romance and humor about very solidly developed characters. I enjoy the contrast of technology and mythology that winds through this book, and I certainly look forward to more from this author.

I received a free electronic copy of this book through a LibraryThing giveaway.
