review 1: I liked the second book in the series much more than the first book. DoB focuses a lot more on some of the characters not really fleshed out in the first, in particular we see a much stronger Watcher as Thren was only marginally exposed. There are some underlying modern/political/ethical themes also running throughout the text such as the introduction of Ghost.I am not sure what to think of a character called Deathmask. Without more knowledge of how magic works in the series or the significance of robes, I am not sure how I should approach the yellow mage either. There is a lot of mystery surrounding that particular appearance of mercenary company.My feeling after reading the first book and now this one is that Dalglish writes in a manner that is very cinematic. I ima... moregine this series being watched on something like Hulu or Netflix as a response to the Game of Thrones on HBO: LOTS of action and lots of flashy action/magic at that.I look forward to reading the third one.The fact I bought this e-book the day after I read the first book, and then between my busy research/teaching schedule finished should also explain why I rated this a 4 star over the 3 star of the first one.
review 2: started this series to fill my need for assassins after the awesomeness of Brent Weeks' Night Angels trilogy. however i almost wanted to abandon this series because i was struggling to crawl through the first half of book #1: Dance of Cloaks. it got better towards the end and when i finished Cloaks, i was debating whether to continue with Blades but my obsessive need for closure had me picking up this one. i am totally glad i did because this second book is FAR BETTER than the first one — well-paced, interesting, and it kept me quite eager to read on. the characters which i found interesting received plenty more action (which were short enough so i didnt get bored) and the pacing of the plot was great. starting on the third book now which i hope will be even better! less

Really good especially if you enjoyed the first one, had to read the next in the series immediately

Fast paced, but lightweight. On to the third in the series.

a fine follow-up. Death abounds with reckless abandon!
