The second book in a glorious new fantasy trilogy by the next major force in commercial epic fantasy.
In the wake of the devastating attack on Ilin Illan, an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs - finally allowing them to emerge from hiding and openly oppose the dark forces massing against Andarra. However as Davian and his new allies hurry north toward the ever-weakening Boundary, fresh horrors along their path suggest that their reprieve may have come far too late.
In the capital, Wirr is forced to contend with assassins and an increasingly hostile Administration as he controversially assumes the mantle of Northwarden, uncovering a mystery that draws into question everything commonly believed about the rebellion his father led twenty years ago. Meanwhile, Asha begins a secret investigation into the disappearance of the Shadows, determined to discover not only where they went but the origin of the Vessels that created them - and, ultimately, a cure.
And with time against him as he races to fulfill the treacherous bargain with the Lyth, Caeden continues to wrestle with the impossibly heavy burdens of his past. Yet as more and more of his memories return, he begins to realise that the motivations of the two sides in this ancient war may not be as clear-cut as they first seemed...

I received a review copy of An Echo of Things to Come in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Orbit Books and James Islington.
The narrative picks up events one month after The Blinds' brutal assault on Ilin Illan which concluded The Shadow of What Was Lost. All of the four main p...

“The lesser of two evils, or the greater good.
Get a good man to utter either of those phrases, and there is no one more eager to begin perpetrating evil.”
Oh, just how entertaining this sequel was! James carefully scooped many interesting things from many interesting worlds across the fantasy...

This author just made it to my total fanboy heart. I'm rarely this excited about new anything. I mean, I'm usually excited to some degree or another, but I usually reserve this kind of energy for authors I know and have trusted for years.
Welcome to my heart, Mr. Islington. :)
These characters are...

An Echo of Things To Come was another excellent entry into The Licanius Trilogy. It matched the quality of the first book in the series and helped cement the series place as one of my new fantasy favourites. Reading this series feels a lot like reading a Brandon Sanderson book with a little bit o...

* I was sent this for free from the publisher *
This book is a highly anticipated sequel to The Shadow of What Was Lost which was a stand-out read for me when I read it back in April of last year. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical of whether this one would be as good as the first, beca...

That is a fantastic sequel!
Alhamdulillah I love this book. Licanuus Trilogy is definitely one of my favourite series.
There is a lot improved in this book than the first book. Personally, I think 'An Echo of Things to Come' is a lot better than 'The Shadow of What Was Lost'.
This book is completed...

Book 1: 3.75*'s
Book 2: 3.25*'s
I still enjoyed this book and I'm still looking forward to book three however it did drag at points for me. Secondly I didn't feel like there was a ton of character growth which I like to see as the series goes on. Third there were just way too many flashback scenes....

[4.5 stars - Review of the first two books] What started out as a seemingly straight-forward classic adventure fantasy quickly evolved into a complex story with countless dynamics and twists & turns. I ended up liking it ten times more than I thought I would – it’s easily one of the best I’ve...

A book does not need to be perfect to please me. An author does not need to write like a champion to entertain me. If the story is good, the world in which it takes place detailed and memorable, and the characters decent, that's usually all I really need or ask for. The first book of this trilogy...
