Initially he is almost in a daze, just getting through life, but then another old friend drags up an old grudge, and a collection of other circumstances bring Waylander back. The story swings into action, and while this story is dark, it’s not quite as dark as the original, and Waylander finds within himself things we were never sure were there before. The story is gripping, fast paced and tense, and the characters are as interesting as ever. A good sequel, well worth a read.
