Davies…remember me when you become the next big thing! Underworld is a fantastic continuation from "Destiny of the Wulf",not exactly carrying on when Destiny was left, but leaving enough of a gap so that it is not a day by day account of Coinin and Marroks adventures. Reading how the characters have grown and developed each to their own has been fascinating and have left me smiling, laughing, worrying and in states of shock.

The side line stories around other characters in the book are well documented without deterring the focus from the main characters and their journeys. I am not usually a fantasy novel reader as I find it a difficult read for me, but with this series so far I have found myself being excited, leaving the household chores etc just so that I can catch up with the next instalment!! A must read!
Harrison writes this beautifully and I am eagerly awaiting the next book! Shelves: fantasy , dragons , cover-to-cover , adventure , pirates , beta-read. A fantastic sequel in a great series! The story follows Coinin as he searches for his brother Marrok. It flows well and has the right mix of action and description. The characters are interesting and I look forward to reading more of their adventures.

- The Aduramis Chronicles: Underworld - Book 2: Chapter 1, book by Harrison Davies.
This is the 2nd book in a series. The first is 'Destiny of the Wulf'. It follows perfectly where book 1 finishes. As in book 1, Harrison Davies, has woven a brilliant fantasy tale with word imageries that will draw you in from the start of it. It is laden with action, suspense and unexpected twists. Both books in 'The Aduramis Chronicles' have complex plots that will hold the readers interest throughout. If you are an avid fantasy buff, pick up this series. It is very entertaining.
The second book in The Aduramis Chronicles is as brilliant as the first,the adventure is kicked into high gear when Marrok Wulf is kidnapped by the evil wizard Lordich Secracar,his brother Coinin Wulf sets out on a long journey to find him and along the way he loses trusted allies and gains new ones. Oh how I love this series,it's so well written,captures you and doesn't let you go,plus all of the mythical creatures are the icing on the literary cake.
Another job well done!!! Feb 15, Nat Pollard rated it really liked it. Not a bad "setting up for the main event" type book. It was a little slow for a start but improved with time. Sometimes I feel as though there are times when main characters escape serious situations a little too easily, leaving me suspicious that it is all a setup for a big deception in the next book. I hope I am correct, or I will be quite disappointed. About Harrison Davies. Harrison Davies. Born in Hartlepool, United Kingdom in I grew up a typical 70's child, bad hair, and even worse clothes.

Sort order. Underworld is the second novel in the Aduramis Chronicles series, following on directly from Destiny of the Wulf. Harrison Davies is a skilled writer whose work certainly deserves wider recognition, and I can imagine that in time it will receive it. Davies is skilled at crafting scenes with a wonderful descriptive flair, creating a range of different vistas and set pieces. While the second instalment in a series often suffers by lacking a clear beginning and end, Underworld has a solid narrative Underworld is the second novel in the Aduramis Chronicles series, following on directly from Destiny of the Wulf.
While the second instalment in a series often suffers by lacking a clear beginning and end, Underworld has a solid narrative focus in the form of Coinin Wulf's quest to find his missing brother. The personal nature of the quest lends it emotional resonance, and the sacrifices Coinin and company must make along the way are well conveyed. Davies adeptly juggles multiple plot strands including a quest to find missing mystical swords to appease the gods and a nefarious plot involving Death himself, but these are very much in the background and the focus remains on Coinin's quest to find brother Marrok.
Underworld is a highly action-oriented book. The pace is generally swift and the action is well-written and nicely set up with some neat twists and imaginative flourishes. If anything I found it was in danger of being almost too action-packed at times, and there were a number of sequences in which the protagonists were captured, imprisoned and escaped which maybe veered toward repetition, but before that could become a problem, Davies pulls out some new twists, concluding the main quest surprisingly early I hadn't anticipated that pay-off until the end of the book somehow and then setting things in a new direction.
The book sets up a new storyline in the last couple of chapters, initiating up a dangerous new quest for the heroes. Thankfully, by resolving the main narrative thrust of the story Coinin's quest , there's more than sufficient pay off.
The Aduramis Chronicles: Underworld - Book 2
The characters are well-drawn and engaging. Coinin is a sympathetic and three-dimensional hero with enough flaws to make him human and relatable. The bond with his brother Marrok is very well realised, as is his self doubt and somewhat repressed adolescent urges. I enjoyed the interplay of Aniol, Axl and the introduction of a very civilised orc named Len'i. At times there were possibly a few too many characters in the mix for my taste, but the eventual losses demonstrated that sacrifices had to be made and gave the story added weight.
I'm not quite feeling Lordich Secracar as a villain yet, I love his name though , he hasn't quite jumped out at me, but clearly there are many developments in store. The entire series feels meticulously plotted, which is very encouraging. I really look forward to seeing where is Davies taking this series and how he will pull things together.
Already there's a lot of scope for all kinds of amazing possibilities. The Aduramis Chronicles is shaping up to be an excellent fantasy series, and one that will be enjoyed for many years to come. Shelves: posted-on-blog. My family also demanded food for dinner tonight!
Chapter 1 (v.1) - The Aduramis Chronicles: Underworld
I wanted to make certain that my review of his work actually did the book justice. I met this author in an online community on the Goodreads website. Davies, in my opinion, had a lot of work ahead of him. The story picks up wonderfully where the first book ended. The characters started to grow into their own as time advanced. The adventures are getting more complex and complicated.
Loved this fact! This book is classified as a fantasy novel. I personally disagree with this classification. I have read a lot of books over my lifetime. Only a handful of new authors have written a book that has just taken my breath away. At one point in this book I caught myself holding my breath. Another time I was covering my mouth and gasping. I have spoken via the magical realm of the internet to know that he has a third book in the works. He resides in the mystical land of England. I in the rolling land of Half Way, MO There are also a couple of prequels brewing in that wonderful imaginative brain of his.
Plus there is a book or two that will branch off the main characters. Pain in any form was unwelcome, and thankfully the mysterious personage he was destined to meet had set some constraints on his delivery. Two foul smelling individuals manhandled him below decks, where the interior of the ship stank far worse. Blown off the course of their heroic destiny, the Wulf brothers find themselves at the mercy of fate in more ways than one … Separated, stranded, and deterred from their course, Coinin and Marrok must fight against all odds to reunite and resume the course set before them.
