I didn't like this as much as book one. I still liked the story's overall path. I still liked the writing style. The problems were that the characters didn't grow or give a wider sense of empathy or who they were.

Secondly and more distracting was that scenes which could have been great were tied up in a sentence or two in too simplistic a manner. One example a character has to get up to convince a group with no reason to trust her to do exactly that. She starts talking and twice a member of the crowd heckles her with hard questions. The third time she say you'll simply have to trust me, you have no other choice and exits the stage. Her friends tell her what an excellent job she did.
I wouldn't except that from a YA series. This happens again and again when a demon is recruiting for the enemy giving supposedly hardened and cynical men little to no concrete reasons to join the cause. If you're going to present these scenes you can't just brush over them. The devil is in the details. I may still give book 3 a read when it comes out even though this one was disappointing. View all 4 comments. Feb 29, Kyle rated it it was ok. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in The Leopard Stratagem. I liked the first book in the series and was actually looking forward to seeing where this second one went.
This happened as I had expected. I also figure the villain, Norbanus Forticus, would play a role in the second book. Again that happened just like I thought it would. The plot gets interesting then stalls and I felt like I had to push through too much detail or unrelated story lines. That whole story line has absolutely no impact on the plot at all. It just ends up being a distraction. By the end of the book I found myself wondering why I bothered.
But the regular occurring grammar errors became just too annoying. Uner is self published and I have to give him props for the huge accomplishment.
Much less a book you wrote yourself but there has to be some way of weeding out most of the grammar errors. In the end I just did not like it, so only two stars. View 1 comment. Sometimes the questions themselves can Enlighten us.

Uner in exchange for an honest review. This sequel is another masterpiece from the talented author T. I truly found myself compelled and drawn with this book-- The Leopard Stratagem, the second installment of the Leopard King Saga. What happened during the first book The Leopard Vanguard was intense but I found out that "Life isn't always about answers.
What happened during the first book The Leopard Vanguard was intense but I found out that this book is way better when it comes to the plotline and action scenes. In this book, Tullus' character improves a lot. He becomes stronger and much more determined to learn about the many things he can possibly do with his magic. Through the guidance of Hradack, the master of the Elemence, he was able to make himself better along with Celestra. This book is hands down cleverly thought-out. I love the pacing and the originality the author crafted. However, I had a single issue.
Most of the male characters seem to lack a bit of consistency and uniqueness. I think their personalities also weren't clearly defined. Added the fact that majority of their names ended up with letter us and ius so yeah, sometimes my mind was messed with the names, too. But overall, this book is amazing and it kept me interested the whole time. And ugh, the cliffhanger ending, man! But it's okay. I'm used to that kind of ending. May 03, Magda Kossakowska rated it it was amazing. Thank you T. This part was better then the first one:- There so much waiting for next adventure of Leopard King really come on Thank you to the author, T.
Uner, for gifting me with a copy of The Leopard Stratagem in exchange for an honest review! Where to start? Let's start with the structure. I really liked how the author structured the paragraphs. Multiple POV's are necessary for the reader to keep up with everything going on. Realizing that, the author had a section in each chapter for each POV so you can see everything that's happening as well as seeing how all of the plot lines are slowly coming together. I found Thank you to the author, T. I found that to actually be the most fascinating part of this book: the way the threads are slowly being pulled together.
The different POV's are so integral to the story and I could always tell the difference between them. Each character has a distinct voice that comes through the writing. I also really like how the author integrated Elemence into the Roman setting. I do wish that some of the information pertaining to the Air Paladins was more clear. For some reason, I had problems visualizing these people and their powers. Did they actually fly through the air?
Did they just fight with Elemence or did they use enhanced combat techniques? How evenly matched are they with their enemies? Perhaps those questions will be answered in the next book. Celestra continues to be my favorite character. I just love cats in general and she's so loyal to Tullus but also to herself. And a strong warrior to boot! The Final Verdict: A very nice sequel that starts to pull the storylines together perfectly. I really loved how Elemence continued to be incorporated into the Roman setting.
I also really liked all of the different POV's. People kill people. You never know when never may come.

Aug 15, Shilpa bagla rated it really liked it. The plotline was developed more systematically than in the first book. The story also flowed at a smoother pace. The story is vividly described as is the case with all of Uners' books.
