'Broken Banners' by Mark Gelineau and Joe King is the second book in the Reaper of Stone novella cycle in their ambitious world. It was a good story, but this time out, it felt more like a chapter in an ongoing story than a novella. Maybe because story threads begin and end around this story.
Elinor has found herself an outcast, along with her friend, engineer Conbert, and another old friend, Aldis. They work on a daring rescue scheme to overcome a force of larger odds at Heights Ward Keep. It will take all of Elinor's will and Conbert's engineering talent to turn this around. The events fo the prior book come back to haunt them, and set their course.
It's as good as the previous books I've read, but the previous works have felt more like complete works toward a larger story. This felt less complete in this volume. Of course I'll read more in the series, and I think it's still an interesting world with interesting characters.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Gelineau and King, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
