When I read the first book in this series, I had a hard time adapting to the unique narrative voice, but when I started reading this book, I fell right into it. Outlaw picks up pretty much where Enemy left off, and our heroes have to convince the powers that be of the threat to the realm... But all is not what it seems *cue dramatic music*I'd say the strengths of this series are how each character's voice is distinct, the unusual flow of the narration, the fact that the characters are morally complex without quite falling into the "anti-hero" mold. As I read some of the more violent sections I wondered if this series counts as grim-dark... Maybe grim-dark lite? There's some dark elements, but there's also some humor and some strong hopeful threads of friendship and partnership.And partnership is what I really love about this book. Snow and Vieko think of and refer to each other as partners. When Vieko wants to help Snow with something, it's not because she's a woman and he's a man, but because they are partners and he thinks that she needs his particular skillset, or just that it might be a job for two people instead of one. It's so refreshing to read a book where people RESPECT each other. Although Vieko and Snow each get annoyed at each other and sometimes hurt each other with ill-thought words or actions, their relationship is one built on respect for each other's abilities and a past history of saving each other's asses.I go back and forth on whether or not their relationship is eventually going to turn romantic. I would be happy either way... If they did fall in love, it would feel natural, and not as rushed as some book romances. And if they didn't, it would be wonderful to see a man and a woman who were friends, without sexual tension.I liked this one enough that I went to immediately check if the third book was out yet as soon as I finished it, because I really want to know what happens next. So I recommend this series.Good Outlaw: A Dark Fantasy Novel Author K.

. A viral Kindle Outlaw: A Dark Fantasy Novel A SIMPLE MAN'S REVIEW:It's good to have Snow and Veiko back! Conjuring fire and killing people - this time in Snow's home town, Illharek. The godsworn of Tal’Shik are hot on their heels and The Laughing God appears to be MIA. This story is a fun read, but the second book in a trilogy must be tough. It seems that its job is to provide a bit more background for elements from the first book and set up the main conflict that will be the climax of the third book. But unfortunately, this "in-between land" means less action and no closure. Don't get me wrong - I liked the book. But it can't compare to the first book, in terms of excitement and plot development, nor the level of craziness that I bet the third book will bring. So it is a necessary read to continue with the series but nothing that would be great standing on its own. Make sense? If you liked the first book, you have to read this one to get to the third book. If you didn't read the first book, turn around and start there. You'll love it!
