Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft

So this continues Senlin’s adventures in the Tower a few months after the ending of the first book. Senlin and his crew have become (very courteous) pirates in the quest to find his wife. In this book we explore more of the tower and get a greater understanding of what it’s about. We also get more POV’s which is good to see, the secondary characters are just as interesting as Senlin himself. 

The book takes a while to get going. I wasn’t bored but also I wasn’t as involved as the first book for quite a lot of the start, it only got really interesting once we met up with the Sphinx. From there I ripped through the rest of book and I’m very interested to see where we’re going next. It is still a very well written book, hence the 4 stars instead of 3. Though not as spectacular as the first it is still a most enjoyable read.

4 stars out of 5
