Queen Of Demons Lord Of The Isles Book II David Drake CONTENTS Acknowledgments Author's Note Prologue Day 2 of the Fourth . Personally, I didn't care to pronounce the voces mysticae when I was working on the book.

Queen Of Demons Lord Of The Isles Book II David Drake CONTENTS Acknowledgments Author's Note Prologue Day 2 of the Fourth Month (Heron) The 3rd of Heron Th. Valence III, crowned King of the Isles, shivered in the unseasonably warm night as the wizard Silyon scribed the words of his incantation on the transom of an age-crumbled gateway.

It shouldn’t have been night anyway, though from the way Cashel felt he was willing to believe he’d been unconscious for a dozen hours. He got carefully to his feet. Toads shrilled merrily. They couldn’t carry a tune any better than he could: toads, seagulls, and Cashel or-Kenset. Toads were a familiar sound, and in the near distance he heard the rattling grunt of a pig frog just like the ones in the marshes south of Barca’s Hamlet.

The Queen, half demon herself, uses fire-demons to take what she wants and scare the populace to follow her will. David Drake is an American author of science fiction and fantasy literature. Meanwhile, King Valence has been persuaded by a wizard to make sacrifices to The Beast, a powerful demon trapped long ago Garric and his friends defeated the Hooded One at the end of the last book. The second books starts just after, with all of them together once more, but not for long. A Vietnam War veteran who has worked as a lawyer, he is now one of the major authors of the military science fiction genre. Other books in the series. Lord of the Isles (9 books).

Praise for Queen of Demons. David Drake's Lord of the Isles is an epic with the texture of the legends of yore, and rousing action and characters to cheer for. -Terry Goodkind. More shapely than the original volume, and beguilingly set forth. His undergraduate majors at the University of Iowa were history (with honors) and Latin (BA, 1967). He uses his training in both subjects extensively in his fiction. David entered Duke Law School in 1967 and graduated five years later (JD, 1972). The delay was caused by his being drafted into the US Army.

I tend to travel a lot and dread running out of things to read if my trips are extended so I was pleased to be able to download to my Ipad Kindle app several of the Lord of the Isles series. I started reading the "Queen of Demons" last night and was extremely disappointed by the very large number of misspelled words in the book. In three chapters there were over 120 incorrect words. It appears that the publisher had the book scanned from paper and then OCR'd it with a very buggy OCR program. You can see where many words were not picked up correctly due to character separations not being recognized by the program. You can figure out most of them because of the context, but many of the errors are in proper nouns so it is unclear just what the word is supposed to be.

What really drives me crazy is that many of the OCR errors are to the character names so that Garric is often rendered as Gable. Other errors are just as egregious. I paid the full $7.99 cost of the paperback but received a very inferior product. Is there any way to either get my money back or trade the Kindle versions for real books that, presumably, don't have the same errors?

Have other readers noted these types of transcripion errors in books commercially converted to downloads? I don't mind when some fan has lovingly scanned an out-of-copyright book and gotten these kinds of errors while doing a labor of love production of a 95-year old copy of "Tom Swift and his Motorcycle" but I do object when I am paying money and get such poor value.

If you enjoyed Lord of the Isles, you will like Queen of Demons. The individual tales are more complex, the plot is thicker, but the characters are the same. They grow and change as humans do. They are the heros we see inside ourselves.

The novel is excellent, but the e-book editing is terrible. If the e-book had not been a re-read, I would not have been able to follow the story. The e-book version of this novel needs a major re-editing.

A story that captures your attention. Each character is well written with flaws and their own strengths and weaknesses to make a story that is memorable

Bought it so I can get into the , series

Feist does it again. Lots of action with satisfying conclusion yet still leaves you wanting more. I highly recommend this book.
I was replacing a copy that I had lost. The quality of the book was everything promised, and the delivery time was quick as advertised.
