An incredible novel, Jan 31 2005
This second tome of The Prince of Nothing series is a more than worthy successor of The Darkness that Comes Before. With the Holy War on the march, all the characters briefly introduced in Book One come to life here and play their sometimes surprising role. This novel is much more action-packed than the first ; whereas The Darkness that Comes Before comprised one major battle, The Warrior-Prophet is filled with a lot of battles, each as gripping as the Battle of Kiyuth - yet the essential elements of the first tome, such as the philosophical background, are still very present. In answer to a previous review, whereas this second novel does show some despair and suffering as the Consult's disastrous plans are set in motion and the Holy War is put to test, there is also and foremost hope beyond despair, friendship beyond loss ; there is much more to this novel than betrayal and starvation. If you liked The Darkness that Comes Before, you just can't miss The Warrior-Prophet !
