A PAWN IN GRANDER GAMES
As emperors, generals, and kings vie for dominance, martial sects mount bloody clashes to determine who will influence the nations' leaders. Fallen and humbled, former sect leader Shen Qiao searches for direction in a tumultuous world. He finds an unlikely companion in the nefarious Yan Wushi.
The roguish and powerful demonic practitioner has helped Shen Qiao begin to rebuild his lost martial abilities. As the two travel and work together, the gentle Daoist master dares to imagine that the famed Demon Lord is warming to him. But all is not as it seems, and old treacheries draw fresh blood. As Shen Qiao confronts dangerous new enemies, the struggle for control of the Central Plains ignites!
This second volume of Thousand Autumns contained plenty of great moments between Shen Qiao and Yan Wushi. I was interested in the way their relationship developed in this book, with some twists taking place along the way. The overarching story line also continued to progress well, gaining intrigue and bringing new characters into the mix. The ending was a cliffhanger as expected, which left me wanting to know what would happen next, so I am looking forward to volume three in January. The illustrations throughout were also lovely as always. This one gets 4 stars from me.
