Noonshade (Chronicles of The Raven #2) - James Barclay 6.50   2

The enthralling sequel to Dawnthief takes the adventure into a new dimension.

Denser has cast the apocalyptic spell Dawnthief, the Wytch lords are banished and Balaia can turn to defeating the teeming hordes of Wesmen.

But something has gone horribly wrong. The spell has created a rip between the dimensions, a dirty rolling patch of nothingness in the blue sky. It casts a shadow at noon. And, day by day, the shadow is growing...

As the Wesmen storm through Balaia, The Raven must answer a bizarre call from the awesome dragon Sha-Kaan. The brood Kaan are fighting a losing battle against the other broods of the dragon dimension to prevent them pouring through the ever-widening dimensional rip to lay waste to Balaia.

And somehow The Raven must help them...

James Barclay has created a fantasy epic of rare intensity and blistering pace peopled by characters you can believe in.

Noonshade is the second book of the Chronicles of The Raven trilogy. Noonshade is a bit better and more enjoyable fantasy book than the first book. I'm not saying that this book is excellent, but it's good average fantasy, if you're interested in light fantasy.
