Light in the Gloaming was a promising, though sometimes uneven, beginning to a saga as well as the beginning of the(hopefully extensive) body of work of J.B. Simmons. Breaking the Gloaming is a fulfillment of the promise of book 1. With a foreign threat on the horizon, plotters and schemers from the last story go into places way outside their element this time around, and lose control along the way. The world of Valemidas is much more dangerous now, and intriguing as well.The philosophical musin [...]
Prince Andor has much to do to rebuild Valemidas in the aftermath of Tryst’s coup. With Tryst languishing in the Gloaming and Ramzi dead, Andor must forge a way forward in the midst of an uncertain nobility and the threat of war from Sunan. Secrets are being revealed and plans are being laid bare - how true is Sebastian and what is his true motive? In the background, the priests plot - from the still-preachy Yeats, to the tandem Sunan priests, Malam and Ilias.Simmons ups the complexity in Brea [...]

The second (and concluding) book ups the ante in every way - bigger plot, deeper characters, more suspense, polished prose, more difficult questions of ethics, religion, and philosophy, more pathos if you liked Light, you'll love this one. If you were so-so on Light, you'll still love this one. If you loved Light you know what to do.Breaking the Gloaming is a story about a bigger war. It is a story of duty, sacrifice, [...]
What an excellent read!It was a fast page turner compared to book one and had me very engaged in the story as well as invested in the lives of these characters. Book one was fairly action packed, but this one even more so! I was surprised at how I found myself rooting for different characters then I had previously in book one. I will admit that I was strongly disappointed by Ravine’s actions. She was my favorite character and I had such high expectations for her! However, with that said, I did [...]
J.B. Simmons has replicated all of the great from his first novel, Light in the Gloaming, and has added to that success with an intriguing new plot. The characters that won me over in his debut come back reinvigorated, with even greater depth and surprises. As a whole, the novel is excellently written, and Simmons's world continues to inspire.Breaking the Gloaming is a sequel that pushes forward, rather than falling into the trap of overwhelming details that so many are vulnerable to. Here is an [...]
A thoroughly enjoyable sophomore volume from J.B. Simmons. The author brings back all of the best characters from Light while adding new qualities and challenges for each. Framed by quotes from the greatest minds in the western canon, each chapter moves the plot along to a final culminating battle. Well done, J.B.
