Dave Duncan's "The Coming of Wisdom (The Seventh Sword Book 2)" picks up immediately after the end of the previous book. It's written in the same style as that book, so you know what to expect here. One thing that I did find better is that this book stays on story better than the first book (the earlier work having a lot of "setting the stage" stuff). Duncan also does some nice work with entwining various plot aspects together. About the only thing that bothers me is that the "mystery" of the sorcerers is blatantly obvious after a certain point and the protagonist doesn't see it. But, I'm certainly happy with the book and am rating it at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

The novels in Dave Duncan's "The Seventh Sword" series are:

1. The Reluctant Swordsman (The Seventh Sword Book 1)
2. The Coming of Wisdom (The Seventh Sword Book 2)
3. The Destiny of the Sword (The Seventh Sword Book 3)
4. The Death of Nnanji (The Seventh Sword Book 4)

“The Coming of Wisdom” is the 2nd book of a trilogy. (“The Reluctant Swordsman” is the 1st book.) This 2nd book begins right where the 1st book ends, so you definitely shouldn’t get this 2nd book if you have not read the 1st book. This 2nd adventure keeps many of the original main characters, adds new characters and has new puzzles regarding how things work in the new world to which Wally was transported. If you enjoyed the 1st book (and why would you be reading this book review if you did not), then you should like this one nearly as much. Also, like the 1st book, this 2nd book’s ending had a satisfying wrap-up even though ending with the promise that “more adventure awaits”.

I didn’t know what to expect from the 1st book and so found the 1st book to be a very pleasant surprise and, as it exceeded my expectations, I gave it 5 stars. This 2nd book is a sequel and so, though nearly as entertaining as the 1st book, only met my expectations (rather than being a pleasant surprise), and so I gave it 4 stars. Basically, I think any origin story (which the 1st book is) typically has story elements that its follow-on stories can’t match.

First one was better. In this one, they just move around a bit and go through the same old routines. Part of the problem here is that there is too much narrative and too little scene, so you feel you are being told about things rather than seeing those things unfold through the drama.

It is ok.

This book is a continuation of the story that began in "The Reluctant Swordsman" (see my separate review of that book). While the story is very good and I did enjoy reading it, this book feels even more rushed than the first volume. The main plot is often advanced at the expense of adding the kind of color and flavor that make the great series (Dune, Lord of the Rings, etc.) so good. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book and there were less obviously dropped plotlines than in the first book. It could have been so much more though.

Essentially, this book takes our hero on a whirlwind tour of the World. The riddle from the first book is slowly revealed throughout his travels as are the outlines of the grand battle that will will be resolved, presumably, in the third volume. Some of the mysteries of the World are revealed as are some small pieces of the culture. In the end, it is the fact that our hero has come to accept the World at face value that turns out to be his biggest problem.

My main problem with the book is that there is so little development of minor plot points. The book feels like a rush to end of the main story arc leaving no time to explore other aspects of the world. Wallie/Shonsu visits a number of cities, but other than a cursory description of them, they are ignored despite the fact that they are all clearly unique. Even after two books, how the culture is constructed and how the various crafts and professions interact is still largely a mystery. I had hoped that this book would lead to an exploration of other crafts, but after constructing an elaborate structure for the World, the actually mechanics of how it runs are largely ignored.

And this lack of depth is a shame. The storyline is very good and despite the shortcommings in character and environmental development, I am enjoying it. I just wish that more time had been spent developing the World rather than sprinting through it.

I really enjoyed the first in the series, which had been a quick, fun read. I quickly bought this second installment. The first two-thirds of the story seemed plodding, disconnected, and rambling. Then, I noticed subtle changes in the secondary characters and the story itself. It was an "Aha!"-moment when I remembered the title of the book and it all made sense. I advise any potential readers to hang-in there with the sluggish parts: It's worth it.

This is the second volume of the series and my comments on part 1 stand. I am a fan of David Drake and chose this simply on prior experience. I found it entertaining, with good character development and a well crafted if not unique plot. I bought it for entertainment value and got my money's worth. The series is worthwhile for that purpose and the final resolution of the story was satisfying and not overly obvious in advance.

The story is well told but the names (impossible to pronounce or remember) is a major stumbling block. I found it necessary to make a list of the characters to know who was on first. Also, the often rapid and unexpected change in the point of view character sometimes left me scratching my head. Having said that, I felt Mr Duncan maintained great tension throughout. While not a page turner, it kept me engaged. I will likely buy the follow-on book.
