This book took me a little longer to get into than the first, but once again, I did enjoy it. Something new that intrigued me was the introduction of Arrant, Ligea's son. He was a nice addition to the story and brought on a lot of emotions throughout the story. Mostly it was sadness with his constant determination and always feeling like a failure. I'm sure we've all been there at some stage with one thing or another, but I loved that he never gave up and kept trying, regardless.

I can't say I particularly enjoyed Ligea here either. She really irritated me in the first, but in this she just made me plain angry at times with her disappointment/anger at Arrant. Whilst it is kind of explained, it didn't really justify it in my opinion. The introduction of Gevanen was enjoyable as he had a great sense of humour and really brought some light heartedness to the whole situation.

Despite a few faults in the book, I look forward to the third and final installment and seeing Arrant's development. ( )

I was put off at first when I read of the back cover that this second book was going to switch main characters from Ligea to her (currently unborn) son Arrant and his angsty teen years. I hate switching main characters after getting deeply involved with someone. But we were given plenty about Ligea, especially at first, and of course by the end I was just as deeply invested in Arrant’s story.

Arrant has a pretty turbulent childhood. From a rebel camp to constant war to the confining luxury of Tyr, he struggles to control his mighty but unpredictable magic, his feelings of rejection by his distracted parents, and the way no one will believe him about the voice of his brother in his head.

As existing enemies start to fall, you wonder what the final confrontation will be in book 3. Can’t wait to find out. ( )

The first in this series (Heart of the Mirage) was immediately notable for fantasy world building that owed more to the Roman Empire and the Arabian Nights than to traditional medieval genre landscapes. The strong female protaganist, Ligea Gayed, was also a standout.

The follow-up (The Shadow of Tyr) shifts the action to the heart of the Empire.

Ligea Gayed has been lied to once too often. Now she has deserted the Empire of Tyrans and thrown her lot in with Kardiastan, the country of her birth.

She is working to bring down the Empire, free the vassal countires invaded by the Tyranians (including Kardiastan) and to abolish slavery.

Yet, despite her best efforts, a rebellion is hard to come by. Except within her own family, of course. Ligea's son, Arrant, was born into the middle of war and turmoil. His father, Temellin, is the Mirager – the leader of the Magoroths, the magically powerful ruling class of Kardiastan. Ligea is resented by many of the Magoroths because of her foreign upbringing. When she discovers she is the rightful Mirager by birth, she believes this will threaten Temellin's leadership and she has unfinished business with her former employer, the secretive Brotherhood of the Tyrans Empire. So she leaves Kardiastan to bring down the Empire.

Arrant is torn between his two parents and countries. He wants his parents to be together and be just parents rather than warriors or kings. He is prey to feelings of inadequacy, and is angry about his mother's relationship with Brand, her former slave and lifelong friend. Worse still, in the middle of a war, he is a Magoroth unable to control or use his power in a constructive way.Unable to accept these difficult circumstances, he becomes susceptible to the blandishments of his mother's enemies. In seeking to punish Ligea for her relationship with Brand, Arrant and those around him might well lose everything

It is this frustrated desire that provides the driving force of the climax of the book, and though the major plot points are war, rebellion, death and strategy, it's the intense emotions of the main players that really shine through.

The Shadow of Tyr is not for those looking for bloody depictions of war. For those more interested in the emotional costs of rebellions and politics, Larke has once again delivered a well-written and satisfying read. ( )

I finished it just this morning and I loved it. It kept me guessing right up until the end. For once, I had absolutely no idea how it was going to end and that was great.

There were also so many moments where I thought "No! That can't happen!" It was heart-wrenchingly brilliant.

Glenda has really outdone herself with this one. ( )

My favourite thing about Glenda Larke’s writing is her world building – I find it easy to get lost in her novels because the world and characters are beautifully drawn. THE SHADOW OF TYR is no exception. This is essentially Arrant’s story, and his motivations and thought processes are absolutely meticulous. Arrant’s voice, even when he is narrating as a young child – as he does for much of the novel (which closes when he is in his very early teens) – is vivid and real. His isolation is heart wrenching. This is a novel that had me deeply engaged emotionally – brilliant, riveting stuff. ( )
