      *** 4.35 ***A buddy read with the Fantasy Addicts at BB&B! This Demon has to DIE!Wonderfully imaginative, a bit of a throwback to the cool 80's Science Fiction and its world building and creatures. This is a compliment, because I loved that stuff :-)The second book in the series is a definite improvement on the first. Not that anything was truly wrong with it - it just had some continuity issues and did not read as a cohesive unit. In this volume we get some back and forth in the form of mem [...]

      The 2016 re-reread of book two is done and it was just as good as before. I love this series!------------------------------------------It's re-re-reread time with my friends over at BB&B!------------------------------------------Re-read before The Silver Tide.Jen Williams has really upped her game with this sequel to her debut novel, the Copper Promise.The first book originally started as a bunch of novellas that melted together to form the whole that is The Copper Promise and I loved it. Ev [...]

      The Iron Ghost is a strong sequel to The Copper Promise. We have the necessary development of the main characters, whom I have grown to like quite a fair bit. Then there are higher stakes at hand and expanded worldbuilding. And to top it all off, a whole lot more magic is involved in the storytelling.The narrative structure alone made it a better book just because, unlike its predecessor which was made up of four novellas, it is a single continuous plotline. Given that the story starts with a ti [...]

      Final rating: 5/5 stars‘You are willing to die for love, but not to live for it. What are you afraid of?’This book was 5 words. TERRIFYING. FANTASTIC. EPIC. HEARTBREAKING. FUNIS BOOK was everything I needed and more. Perfect balance of angst, world building, funny moments, serious moments, cute moments, hot scenes, definitely hot and cold scenes like wow, epic fights, fantastic ideas, but I could do without absolute horror scene at the end of the first part of the book (out of four). I never [...]

      When I think of Jen Williams and her writing a few words spring to mind adventurous fun and balanced. The Iron Ghost, the sequel to the very successful The Copper Promise, is all of these and so much more. The Iron Ghost picks up on the adventures of protagonists Lord Frith, Sebastian, and Wydrin as they find themselves in high demand following the events of The Copper Promise. When a job comes up in the distant city of Skaldshollow it looks like an easy way to make money. But things are never e [...]

      What a follow-up to the Copper Promise! This second installment is utterly riveting and I’m very happy I’ve given the whole series a try after the conclusion of the first book, which felt a bit too much like standard fantasy Quest fare even if I had fun reading it.The characters are, uncompromisingly, one of the best features of this trilogy. They are very intriguing and full of promise so what particularly worked for me in The Iron Ghost is that, along with nonstop action, the characters li [...]

      [Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton for my copy.]Lord Frith, Wydrin and Sebastian, after their dragon-slayer escapades in The Copper Promise are now known as The Blackfeather Three and are roaming the land, sorting out people's other-worldly problems and loving all the attention and coin they're receiving as a result. However, an age-old mage is re-awakened and it seems Lord Frith is not the only mage with an ego problem any longerThis is the second book in The Copper Promise series, but it can ac [...]

      4.5 stars!Review to comeI haven't forgot about this review. It's mostly written up but there are a couple of names I don't know how to spell. Fantasy character name urgh! I write my reviews at work (broken laptop) and the book is at home. Combine this with a bad memory and well you get the idea.

      *Source* NetGalley/Publisher*Genre* Fantasy, Magic*Rating* 4*My Thoughts*The Iron Ghost, by author Jen Williams, is the second installment in The Copper Cat series. The series features three primary characters; Wydrin Threefellows aka the Copper Cat of Crosshaven, Sebastian Carverson, & Lord Aaron Firth. Following the adventures of The Copper Promise, the three have become the go to trio to call on whenever something strange and magical raises its ugly head. The three have even started calli [...]

      This book is the second volume in the Copper Promise series; this review may contain mild series spoilers.You know those books you read when everything else you’ve had to do is really stressful or tedious, and the world and characters between the covers of those books just instantly take you away and let you forget about all the crap for a while? You open it up and everything’s magic, and even though you’ll eventually have to close it again, life is a bit sparklier afterward because you re [...]

      4.5 Stars The Iron Ghost (Copper Cat #2) by Jen Williams is a fantastic followup to a really good first book. I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in The Copper Cat trilogy and was looking forward to reading the next one and I found it to be even better.This is a traditional fantasy series with a very strong female lead named the Copper Cat. The Iron Ghost is a magic centered story about the Black Feather Three and a madman. There are some awesome magical fights and spells. There are sword fight [...]

    14. Lanko on said:

      Really good, with surprising twists along the way. If the first book was pretty straightforward, this one has many careful layers and foreshadowing built in.Wydrin, Sebastian and Frith got a lot more depth here. If in the first book Sebastian was the one who took the brunt of the hard and moral decisions, here this is more evenly spread between them, although Frith has the lead on this one.Also, there are many more secondary characters, and they also always have at very least their fifteen lines [...]

      I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Honestly, I was disappointed in this one, but it could have just been me. I liked the first book in the Copper Cat series- it had been stitched together from shorter stories but it worked well as a novel. For whatever reason, I could not get into this one, though. It felt like there was a lot of jumping around. First we're with Wydrin and the gang in current time, trying to decide if they want to take a job in the icy [...]

      idk why y’all are sleeping on these man,, they’re SO fkn Good full rtc but just know this is my new favouritest favourite series

    17. Liz Barnsley on said:

      Lets start with “Beware the dawning of a new mage”…ha! Brilliant tagline for a brilliant book full of adventure and blinking good characters.I was a HUGE fan of The Copper Promise, the first outing for our protagonists, it was great fun and a bit like a swashbuckling old school pirate movie in its feel and The Iron Ghost is no different, if anything its even more adventurous as our gang come into their own.I’m a bit of a funny one with fantasy – the biggest fantasy series out there, Th [...]

    18. Jaclyn on said:

      I really enjoy Williams' first installment featuring the Copper Cat and her disreputable companions, and like its predecessor The Iron Ghost is filled with excellent characters who embark on fantastic, yet morally ambiguous adventures in which our heroes learn that they should yet again be asking more questions before agreeing to taking on a job. The only complaint that I have with The Iron Ghost is that it didn't seem different enough from the first book. I would have liked to have seen more fo [...]

      Jen Williams's second novel, The Iron Ghost, is published this Thursday (26 February 2015) and I was lucky enough to get an advance review copy through NetGalley. The Iron Ghost is a much stronger novel that The Copper Promise. The plot is more coherent, with a single narrative thread running through the book. Instead of a series of dungeon raids culminating in boss battles, our three adventurers are hired for a specific job. Only it transpires that they were hired on false pretences by an old a [...]

    20. Phil on said:

      The Iron Ghost is to The Copper Promise what The Wrath of Khan is to The Motion Picture or The Empire Strikes Back to A New Hope. It is a sequel/follow-up/second part that equals and overtakes the original. Yet again Jen Williams has caught lightening and channeled the spirits of the pulp greats of the 1920s & 30s to create a gripping, funny and entertaining story that not only expands the world she has created but makes it a whole lot more kickass.I remember reading an interview Ron E Howar [...]

    21. Andy Robson on said:

      I loved the Copper Promise so i was looking forward to this,and it didn't disappoint. Jen Williams ups the action and suspense to massive levels,making it feel relentless,especially in the last half of the book. New places to visit in Ede,new characters (and old) and new beasties makes this a must read. And Joah Demonsworthwhat a bastard.I love a good baddie and he certainly is.Power corrupts! All this makes for a brilliant read at a neck-breaking pace.Loved it.

      You’ve been trudging through the slush and cold for days. You’re shaking with exhaustion, your extremities tingling in a sensation akin to burning.Stumbling into base-camp, you’re grateful you made it before nightfall. The flames of the camp fire are a welcome sight after endless days of blinding snow, of mountains looming over you, of questioning your sanity.A softly steaming tin mug is thrust into your hands and a familiar voice purrs,“You don’t half travel far for a good story, do y [...]

      I really dragged out reading this cause I won’t be able to get the next one for a little while and it as worth it, these books are so amazing I never want them to end! At least I know Jen Williams has started another series so once I finish the Copper Cats I’ll have more of her stuff to read, she’s amazing everything she writes is amazing

      Excellent read. Love this series and can't wait to read the third installment.

      Just finished reading The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams. I admit it upfront - I loved it. The Copper Promise was on my top 10 list for 2014 and I wondered how this would compare and it's just brilliant so beware - there will be gushing aplenty below.The Iron Ghost picks up a few months after The Copper Promise left off. Our favourite threesome, flush with their previous success, are now in great demand - they call themselves the Blackfeather Three. At the start of The Iron Ghost, after a few months [...]

    26. Helen on said:

      Loved this. It's fun and fast and Wydrin is brilliant, she's my new hero. She never thinks, she acts first and leads the way for everyone else. So the Iron Ghost goes a bit more in-depth with the characters than the first book. Now the scene has been set there's more time for them to develop beyond the stereotypes and we see more complex personalities come out. But it also feels more focused and like there is more time given to developing the story. The tone is darker with scarier monsters and a [...]

      Last year Jen Williams delivered a rock solid debut in the form of The Copper Promise. Chock full of engaging characters, a cracking plot and more action than you could shake a big pointy stick at it was a successful reimagining of traditional fantasy tropes injected with a modern sensibility. A year has passed and the good news is that the sequel has arrived. The Black Feather Three have returned for more mayhem!Wydrin remains ever incorrigible, Sir Sebastian endeavours to maintain a noble life [...]

      Last year Jen Williams broke onto the scene with her first novel, The Copper Promise, (my book of the year 2014). 2015 sees the arrival of a new story in the series, The Iron Ghost, a huge doorstopper of a book - and I have been eagerly waiting ever since I was aware of it's release date. We are re-united with the heroes of The Copper Promise - Wydrin of Crosshaven (aka The Copper Cat), Sir Sebastian and Lord Aaron Frith. After their escapades and heroics in their previous adventures they are in [...]

    29. W. G. Saraband on said:

      The Copper Promise was one of the best books I read in 2014. It captured the essence of what makes swords & sorcery great, while adding layers of depth and much needed freshness to a sub-genre that is still too attached to its past.So, I came to The Iron Ghost with high expectations. And they were greatly surpassed.Following the footsteps of our familiar trio of heroes, we are taken to a much more frigid and wild region, where a long conflict has been taking place between two groups that hol [...]
