The 2nd book takes place right after the 1st book, with the exception of the Prologue, which does need to be read. Gash, Sqoe, Shenari, and Naceilia continue on their adventure, while Archous and Siran go on an adventure of their own (so to speak), while Lord Gaul and Overlord Zeinar continue to beat down the remaining armies of Caroth-Nor. There are several underlying storylines going on, and a lot of intrigue that is going on that won't make a whole lot of sense until the third book. There are some new characters as well, one of which was a whole lot of fun for me to write, which I will go into detail more later on this week, and I will also discuss how the characters have grown and changed since Book 1, and possibly where they are headed for Book 3. There are a few surprises in Book 2, but I think I'm saving the majority of those for Book 3. Overall I would say that "Dishonor's Scourge" is better written than "The Curse of a Warrior" and a whole lot more interesting and exciting as well. I am curious to see what everyone thinks of it. Now I just have to start writing Book 3 and finish the screenplay for Book 1. So much to do and no time to do it!
