An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington After the war that almost destroyed Ilin Ilian an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs so they no longer need to work in secret. Davian is heading north towards the weakening Boundary but will he be in time? Wirr has assumed the role of the Northwarden but is facing more and more opposition from an ever more hostile Administration. Asha is hell bent on finding out why the Shadows have disappeared. Caeden is slowly coming to realisation of his past as more of his memories return. More knowledge though just opens up more questions. This is a bridging book but Islington does progress the story enough to keep you wondering what was coming next. You do need to read the first book for the second to make any sense though so if you haven’t started the Licanius series you will need to read The Shadow of What Was Lost first. This is the perfect follow up from Shadow of What Was Lost. Good world building, unusual magic, intrigue, an undefeatable foe who is hell bent on eradicating you out of existence. If you like Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time you will love James Islington’s Licanius series.
