Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

“Broken Quill, the second volume of ‘The Reminiscent Exile’, is considered Outstanding in Genre (Urban Fantasy).” ~ Red Adept Select

*~*~*~*

Morpheus Renegade has fallen and Declan Hale, the Shadowless Arbiter, has returned from the dead.

But scores are still to be settled. A creature from Forget stalks Perth, taunting Declan, drawing him out of his bookshop and forcing him across worlds once again. The last time Declan broke his exile, it cost him his life. Worse, the Knights Infernal have done the unthinkable and withdrawn from True Earth—leaving humanity unprotected against the Void.

Among demonic serial killers, malevolent gods, old girlfriends, and pressure from the local cops, Declan stands at the heart of a conflict ten thousand years in the making.

The Knights may have abandoned Earth to enemies as old and as cruel as time, but Declan won’t let his world—or his favorite pub—fall without a fight.

Mana recenzija/My review

Prognoze par to, ka Deklanam Heilam ilgi miers netiks likts, izrādījās precīza. Kāds vai precīzāk kaut kas ar šaušalīgām slepkavībām mēģina piesaistīt Deklana uzmanību. Tā viņš iepazīst detektīviem Semu Greju un Anniju Brī, no kuriem tieši Annijai būs lemts iegūt būtisku lomu blakus Deklanam.

Tā kā Annijai viss pārdabiskais ir pilnīgs jaunums, tad otrajā sērijas grāmatā pat lielāka skaidrošana kā pirmajā. Bet jāatzīst, ka Annija pārsteidzoši ātri spēj sagremot jauno informāciju. Tikmēr Sofija un Ītans, lai gan parādās, bet tiek novirzīti otrajā plānā.

Šis kaut kas izrādās dievu jeb Mūžīgo, konkrēti Sciona, jaunākā dieva(ir deviņi) Sūtnis. Jau otro reizi īsā laikā Deklans spiests pārkāpt izraidījuma striktos noteikumus un doties uz Bruņinieku galveno mītni. Tur viņam piesola pat drusku necerētu atlīdzību, ja vien spēs pieveikt Scionu un viņa Sūtni, bet, protams, tam visam arī savs āķis.

Brīnišķīgi skaista ceļošana starp un pa dažādajām pasaulēm. Patika arī grāmatā esošais humors, kas prasmīgi pielietots, mēģinot rast nepiespiestību pat visai asiņainos un drūmos mirkļos.

Es dotu Deklana un Annijas (saderināta ar citu, bet kas zin) attiecībām ilgu Mūžu ;)

Ja vien es būtu no tiem, kas arī pārlasa, tad šķiet (visticamāk) vērtējums trešajai grāmatai varētu būt augstāk par toreiz dotajām trim zvaigznēm.

                                                                                                                                                

My prognosis that Declan Hale won’t left alone was correct. Someone or more precisely something tries to get Declan’s attention with gruesome murders. In this way he gets acquainted with detectives Sam Grey and Annie Brie. But it will be Annie that will receive an important role next to Declan.

Since for Annie everything supernatural and magical is new there are more explanations than in the first book of the series. But I have to admit that I was surprised how fast Annie digested the new information. Meanwhile Sophie and Ethan are pushed aside and appear in the story just barely

Turns out that this something is an Emissary sent by Everlasting or gods and this time it’s Scion. Just few months after the first time Declan has to break his exile once again to go to Knights Infernal HQ. There he is promised unexpected reward but only if he manages to kill Emissary, but of course there’s a catch.

Wonderful journey through different worlds. I also enjoyed existent humour which effectively managed to ease the tension even in quite bloody and grim moments.

I would give relationship of Declan and Annie, although she is engaged but who knows, a long life ;)

If I would be one of those that rereads then probably I might give the third book a higher rating than I did, which was 3 stars.
