To Walk in the Way of Lions Upper Kingdom #2Ad it beforeFrom the ruthless wilds of Khanisthan to the wind swept shores of the Mediterranean Sea the beauty and savagery of the Upper Kingdom unfolds like a living thing before them as they travel and Kirin will find out what it means to follow the code of Bushido to the gates of death and beyondThis is the journey of six individuals as they travel beyond the edges of the known Empire into lands uncharted and wild Theirs is a journey of magic and mystery science and swords romance and intrigue It is a journey of different perspectives and unexpected kharma and love found in surprising places It is a journey that takes place five thousand years or so in the future naturally in the Year of the Tiger. Still some of the criticism I expressed in my review of To Journey in the Year of the Tiger applies to this seuel The editing negligence is really a pity Two examples one does not sucomb to sth one succumbs And at the beginning of a book there's a foreword not a forward Sigh But I have to say that character development and depth have improved significantly in this second part of the trilogy Where in the first part there were mostly cut out figures with some incomprehensible emotional outbursts there are now relatable characters with psychological background their own stories and conseuential actions Except Solomon maybe he does have huge potential as a main character but fades into the background pretty uickly One would think that he'd play a important role in the continuing of the journey after all that he reveals about the cat's ancestry And one would think that he himself might have a greater interest in the cat's society and ethics he dismisses them far too easily on that pointI like this story very much I have to say it again despite of some growing pains this is one of the most interesting fantasy worlds out there With some work invested this could easily stand it's ground next to Game of Thrones or similar great fantasy universes
