With Blood Upon the Sand - Bradley P. Beaulieu

well, like most of the reviews that heaped praise and high ratings on this book said: the story loses a bit of intensity, and focus, in the quieter middle portion. but overall, the book has been a winner, if not quite as stupendous as Book One. I've also been told, by reviews, that the final third of With Blood Upon The Sand is brilliant, and brings the excitement and intensity back to this epic Fantasy saga.  there is a small chance I can finish it tomorrow; we shall see.
