Summary

Warriors of God, the second volume of the Hussite Trilogy by Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the best-selling Witcher series, depicts the adventures of Reynevan and his friends in the years 1427-28 as war erupts across Europe.

Reynevan begins by hiding away in Bohemia but soon leaves for Silesia, where he carries out dangerous secret missions entrusted to him by the leaders of the Hussite religion. At the same time, he strives to avenge the death of his brother and discover the whereabouts of his beloved. Once again pursued by multiple enemies, Reynevan is constantly getting into and out of trouble. 

Sapkowski's deftly written novel delivers gripping action full of numerous twists and mysteries, seasoned with elements of magic and Sapkowski's ever-present - and occasionally bawdy - sense of humour. Fans of the Witcher will appreciate the rich panorama of this slice of the Middle Ages.

Great sequel

Again, it's not for everyone, but if you like your historical fantasy extra historical then you won't be disappointed. If you are not a historical fanatic, you can still enjoy the story by treating all the names and places as flavor, and not necessarily something to be remembered. The iteration is also great, it must have been hard to work with so many different languages and references, and not butcher them completely.

FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE!

Normally I refrain from reviews, but recently poor performances have made me appreciate really good ones, Peter Kenny masterfully delivers almost perfect native pronunciation, Latin and a myriad of accents and inflections that make you feel like you’re there.

Better as you get further in to the book.

Too many characters to start with and then eventually it settled down. Can't wait to read the next one. As always brilliantly narrated.

Just so unbelievably wonderful

Peter Kenny is as usual wonderful and the adventures just get better and better. I now need to await book 3 but it is a price well with paying for more of this delightful story. I really had doubted that this would be as good as the Witcher books but it really is whilst being set in a completely different time... I do keep expecting Cirilla or Yennifer to appear but there are other nice occasiional links suggesting this world may be their world or may just have been conjoined.

This series is not the straight historical fiction that I had expected but is better for it.

In dire need of editing

Most was tedious as far too much unnecessary historical and other extraneous detail drowned out the adventure. I struggled to the end just to find out what happened but kept wanting it to just finish. It feels almost as though what is being recounted is an excuse to demonstrate knowledge but even there the plethora of other detail and languages render the facts forgettable. A great shame - a tighter edit would have made it enjoyable on all fronts. The narration of such a monotonous read was excellent and needs a commendation.

Do not recommend

The book starts off nice with the protagonist having evolved a bit into a wiser version of himself. And the story seems to promise the reader a deep dive into low-magic and that mysterious, dark conspiracy with the wall creeper.

However, this isn’t what happens. Instead we get an excruciatingly detailed recitation of Prokop the Great’s crusades north out of Bomhemia. Logistics, names of hamlets, slaughtering of innocents. Rinse and repeat. I nearly quit reading. The only thing that kept me going was Peter Kenny’s narration which is, as always, excellent.
