Dangerous Games is the second book in the Netheril Trilogy by Clayton Emery. Two of the main charcters from the first book return and the story begins soon after the concluding events of the first book. While still entertaining, this one tended to drag through the middle third of the book.
The story opens with another excellent fight scene involving the main character of the series - Sunbright Steelshanks. His newfound ally from the first book, the sorceror Candlemas, also returns and aids Sunbright. After the initial discovery of a shooting star, the heroes are transferred to a different time. The book begins to drag when the heroes are separated.
New allies are found, there are plenty of sword fights, and the story starts to pick up again at the beginning of the final third of the book. There's a big buildup to the finale which is well-written (involves a character trying to achieve god status), but it is a bit short. The book is still recommended as long as you read the first book beforehand.

This book gets off to a good start right away by having an extemely detailed and action filled battle scene. The book also develops a thick plot and story line, while contiuing the saga from the prequel.

This is a good second book for the trilogy. It brought in a new charicter that changes the whole story. If you would like to talk to me E-mail me.
