    Bridge of Swords is the first book in Duncan Lay s second trilogy, Empire of Bones It is set about three hundred years after the Dragon Sword Histories The Wounded Guardian, The Radiant Child and The Risen Queen , however you definitely need not have read the first series for this one to make sense Given the large time gap, there are no common characters and in the interim the face of the world has changed significantly so that even those who have read the first series will find it relatively Bridge of Swords is the first book in Duncan Lay s second trilogy, Empire of Bones It is set about three hundred years after t...

    The fascinating things in this book are, firstly, the characterisation Lay excels at presenting the relationships which develop between these three characters, with warmth and insight They are all charmingly flawed Sendatsu has been bullied by his father into a sort of passive selfishness Rhiannon has such a ludicrously inflated vision of the perfection of Elves that she can see nothing at all of the reality she is slightly ridiculous although loveable a beautiful singer and dancer who ha The fascinating things in this book are, firstly, the characterisation Lay excels at presenting the relationships which develop between these three characters, with warmth and insight They are all charmingly flawed Sendatsu has been bullied by his father into a sort of passive selfishness Rhiannon has such a ludicrously inflated vision of the perfection of Elves that she can see nothing at all of the reality she is slightly ridiculous although loveable a beautiful singer and dancer who has unkno...
