The first thing that struck me was the difference in style between the two volumes The first volume, Rider, had a slight rawness about it Not, I think, down to writing skill, but probably a deliberate style choice Our hero, Rhodri, is a boy, and a that age everything has sharp edges.
In Nomad there is a sense of maturity, of fullness The plot is one of being forced to reconsider ones beliefs, of growing acceptance evolvin At the end of part one of Joanne Hall s epic, fantasy, adventure novel, The Art of Forgetting Rider, the hero, Rhodri, for he truly is a hero in the most classic sense of the word, makes an impetuous and life changing decision Realising he cannot allow a captured, young Atrathene woman to be raped and abused by Captain Drusain and other members of the Kings Third, he escapes with her on his battle charger, Liberty Book Two Nomad opens a few minutes later with Rhodri and the girl hiding in the cold waters of a nearby river They overhear Drusain telling his men, they must search until nightfall before giving up Rhodri and the girl must hide in that freezing stream until dark During that time, they exchange names a sign of honour and trust among the members of Nasira s tribe Once they feel safe from the se A brilliant follow up to Rider Nomad really comes through and satisfies the reader with truly moving character arcs and Joanne Hall never holds back from giving each a shocking and sometimes terrifying twist.
You are never quite sure how to feel about Rhodi, his motivations and goals can be pure, but the means by which he attempts to achieve them are often questionable He is grounded by family, but also haunted by it Will he follow his father and become a monstrous tyrant Will he stay with his new family and learn to love life Can he even do that without some tremendous act of violence He doesn t think so.

This book pushes the reader to question whether the ends justify the means As Rhodi s quest reaches its heights, you really feel for him, and fear for Thoroughly enjoyed this book just as much as the first one What a brilliant conclusion to Rhodri s story Again the depth of the character and her detailed world very much evident.
Joanne Hall s Art of Forgetting duology comes to a triumphant, if bloody, close with Nomad When we last saw Rhodri, he had broken away from everything he knew and believed in to save a young Atrathene woman from the hands of his fellow soldiers Having spent so long in Rider working out his own identity and unable to forget any single part of it Rhodri now has to forge himself anew And this time he s taking the fight back to Hierath.
The major difference between Rider and Nomad is that where the former focused on Rhodri s internal dilemmas, Nomad places much emphasis on a physical, worldly battle That s no bad thing, as it sees him coming to terms with who he has become, and that realisation gives the plot an added edge Once Rhodri has defined himself and earned his place in the Atrathene tribe, that definition means he has set himself squarely against Hierath and hi I finally had some time to read with the Holidays and this book was first on my to read list Believe me when I got to the end of the first book I was shaking my fists a bit at the cliff hangery type ending I desperately wanted to know what happened to Rhodri and the woman that he rescued I wasn t disappointed when I picked up Nomad, because the action picks up right where the first book left off The action rarely lets up throughout the whole book I kept waiting for pauses in the action to put the book down, but there wasn t This resulted in surly children who got dinner late on a few nights.
What struck me about the book was the growth of the main character, Rhodri In the first book, honestly, he was only kind of l There was a great twist for the premise of this second book and now I understand the ending of the first Even so, a part of me would still like the two lovers reunited It turns out that Rhodri is not so much gay as confirmed bisexual and gets himself a wife and kids I did not see marriage coming even though he had slept with women before.
This book borrows much from the native american culture and history which gave a great added dimension to the story I found the leg irons hard to come to terms with and a hard scene to read Lots of detail and atmosphere in this section though and chances for Rhodri to grow and develop as a man.
It was good to see Rhodri sticking to his principles even when it was detrimental to him He stayed true to himself to the end I like that in a character There were many twists and turns in this Great ending I was worried there for a while.
I would love too read this book Amazing
