    1. If you've already read the first volume of this series, The Pleasure Of Memory, then you're already familiar with some of the characters of this book. Beam, Chance, Koo and co are all back and in rare form! However, they're joined this time around by even more fully fleshed out characters and, honestly, it's a blast! I try not to give away any plot points when writing reviews, so I'll try to keep to myself the gathering of forces and impending battles that this novel leads towards. I'm not even [...]

    2. koeur.wordpress/2015/01/06Publisher: Caelstone PressPublishing Date: December 2014ISBN: 9780989242981 Genre: FantasyRating: DNFPublisher Description: Volume II of the Blood Caeyl Memories begins where The Pleasure of Memory leaves off. A coalition of witches and warriors, mages and mentalists, soldiers and pirates abandon their mutual suspicions to form a League of Enemies and unite against an otherworldly threat. Driven by forces far older and more powerful than themselves, these natural enemie [...]

    3. I wish you could do half star ratings. This book was 3.5 for me.I read the first one and loved it (even made my husband read the first book so we can talk about it and he loved it too). The second book, for some reason, I just couldn't get into. I can't quite put my finger on as to why. The style and writing/wording is as good as the first, so that's definitely not it. I ended up taking a break half way through the book. Re-read first one and then picked up sequel again. This booked filled in so [...]

    4. This was a NetGalley offering; I read The Pleasure of Memory (also from NetGalley) a while back, and this is the second in the series. Beam's role is a little reduced as other characters find larger roles. The narrative is a bit jumpy, moving from one character to another. The overall plot seemed harder to follow, as minor characters from the first novel suddenly became more important without sufficient background to remind the reader of their previous roles. Nevertheless, I was enjoying Burden [...]

    5. It took me awhile to finish up this second installment because it's been so long I had to go back and reread The Pleasure again. Not so bad, I enjoyed the banter between Chance and Beam. In this installment Beam is not with Chance any longer. He is more with Prave at first, showing him where he came from and why he was made and more what his destiny is. Koon'ta is by his side toward the end of this second book. We also learn of many more players that are here to help Beam with his destiny. I don [...]

    6. Many new characters are introduced in this 2nd volume, which is necessary (i think) to enter the epic portion of the story But then it significantly reduced the part of the earlier characters (Beam, Koonta, Chance, etc) which dissapointed me a bit bcos i was expecting to read more of their story when i started this 2nd volume However, near the end Beam & Koonta get to be the stars again, and the new characters have set their places in the game board, ready to enter the battle so, cant wait f [...]
