Cumoro by Marshall Best, the second book of The Chronicles of Guiamo Durmius Stolo, is an excellent book which will leave you breathless each time you take a break. The action packed, and I mean action packed, adventure is non-stop from page one until the end.
The author did an excellent job of moving seamlessly from where the first book ended directly into this story. The storylines continues to develop and new twists are constantly being added. This volume, though best if read with the first volume, can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone story. I really like how in this story the author weaves historical facts into the mythological folklore of the era and region.
Marshall Best is an excellent storyteller and part of what makes his stories so good is his character development. Each of his characters are both believable and real to life which makes them easy to identify with. Not only are they strong and wise as you would expect from a hero, but they each have a humanity which comes out in the story.
I really liked Cumoro by Marshall Best and I highly recommend this book to all readers. I recommend you also read the first book of the series, Guiamo, in order to gain the full appreciation of this great series.
