Publisher's Summary

It is the Age of Ruin, a time in desperate need of heroes. But heroes are in short supply. The only candidates - a motley company at best - are scattered to the four winds.
Former rebel Sasha has now become an unwilling envoy between the powerful. Eremul the Halfmage languishes in disgrace, his warnings of approaching war falling on deaf ears. Yllandris, sorceress of the High Fangs, servant to a demon lord, has become that which she most despises. Davarus Cole, assassin of the immortal, lies on the brink of death. The legendary champion Brodar Kayne carves a bloody path towards his enemy of old in search of the woman he thought dead....
In this, the second blistering instalment of Luke Scull's critically acclaimed trilogy The Grim Company, past and present collide, plunging the Age of Ruin further into darkness....
Luke Scull is the lead designer at game design company Ossian Studios. He lives and works in Warminster.

there had to be flashbacks

not bad but I really disliked the flashbacks. I know they're really that important to the story and to understanding some characters.
Anyway everything else was quite good and was upset when some characters died which showed how much into this book I was.
a nice story to which I'm looking forward to seeing how this all ends in the next book.
