REVIEW: Shattered Hopes by Ulff Lehmann

Shattered Hopes by Ulff Lehmann is the sequel to Shattered Dreams and the second novel in the A Light in the Dark series. I very much enjoyed Shattered Dreams because it was a nice harsh piece of military fantasy that showed just how the introduction of magic to war would result in a complete transformation of how it’s fought. It is an interesting mix of gritty on-the-ground action and a “return of magic” scenario that reminds me a bit of Jon Snow’s part of A Song of Ice and Fire combined with the War of Five Kings.
