BOOK REVIEW: "The Last Bucelarii Book 2: Lament of the Fallen" by Andy Peloquin

The Hunter of Voramis is no more.
Alone with the bloodthirsty voices in his head, fleeing the pain of loss, he has one objective; travel North to find her, the mystery woman who plagues his dreams and haunts his memories.
When he stumbles upon a bandit attack, something within urges him to help. His actions set him at odds with the warrior priests commanded to hunt down the Bucelarii.
Left for dead, the Hunter must travel to Malandria to recover his stolen birthright. There, he is inexorably drawn into direct conflict with the Order of Midas, the faceless, nameless group of magicians that holds the city in a grip of terror. All while struggling to silence the ever-louder voice in his mind that drives him to kill.

From feared assassin to wretched outcast, the Hunter's journey leads him to truths about his forgotten past and the Abiarazi he has pledged to hunt. His discoveries will shed light on who he really is...what he really is.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Who here likes fantasy but also loves blood and violence? *raises hand* Well, if you raised your hand, too, look no further.  Featuring magic, mischief, and general mayhem, Lament of the Fallen (and it's predecessor Blade of the Destroyer) is the book for you. Following a bloodthirsty and possibly insane MC, the nameless Hunter, we see him brought low, a mere outcast.
Like most good fantasy, there is a majestic quest for something, riddled with potholes and a large cast of supporting characters and adversaries (mostly adversaries). The Hunter is not exactly a good guy, yet he's still the hero/antihero of the story, the one you root for as he meets dark magicians and fights against his own bloodthirsry desires.
I can't say much without giving too much away, but this series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Perfect for horror fans and fantasy lovers alike!
