    1. As unpredictable and dynamic as Lamentation was, things get even more twisty here. Scholes takes his POV characters into unexpected directions and it becomes clear that the repercussions of the Desolation of Windwir are much greater than the first novel hinted at. New threats emerge. Or are they really new? How much of it ties into the Windwir incident? It's also very clear that nothing is quite what it seems. Scholes reveals more of his world here, and what we get to see is tantalizing. I'm sti [...]


    2. Writing: 4.5Story/Plot: 5Depth/Detail: 5Enjoyment: 4.5Why more people have not been reading and talking about this series is absolutely beyond me. I read Ken Scholes' Lamentation based upon the fact he's a local author, seemed like an upstanding fellow, and based on the personal recommendation of a friend who is associated with Ken's writing. I couldn't possibly have been happier with the result - Lamentation was a triumph, a truly unique, well written and engrossing tale, a hybrid fantasy with [...]


    3. I have really been taken away by this series so far. There are going to be five books in all. The characters are well developed and you really get a feel for them all, even the ones you think may be the "bad" guy or girl. The world that is created in these first two books is amazing. You have different cultures, religions, believes and gods. All well done to give you just what you need to understand the rules and what is going on, yet enough to keep you with the feel of mystery.I think Ken Schol [...]


    4. this book confirmed the good impression made with Lamentation. The story of the Named Lands is expanded and what seemed clear cut in the first volume is turned on its head and further complicated by the introduction of new threats. Prophecy is used extensively here, hinting at a greater conflict and darker days to come in the next books. The characters remain appealing and the technique of the author competent and easy to followme of the issues from the first book continued to be minor annoyance [...]


    5. Pros: political intrigue, plot twists, tense atmospheresCons: many aspects of this book are merely set-ups for the next in the series***Minor Spoiler Alert***Canticle is book 2 in the Psalms of Isaac. It's been 9 months since the events of Lamentation and a celebration is under way to welcome Rudolfo's heir to the Ninefold Forest Houses. When tragedy strikes, the people of the already devestated Named Lands learn that the outside threat they feared is closer than they think.All the principles ar [...]


    6. Scholes second outing builds on the powerful groundwork laid in "Lamentation." While this work appears to suffer on the surface from a bit of "destiny-itis", Scholes seems to be laying the groundwork for his characters to free themselves from the metaphysical chains that bind them.Be warned, this book features the most horrible thing I have ever seen done to a character and what was, to me, one of the most gut-wrenching scenes I have ever read in a book. It's not gore or violence that does it (a [...]



    7. Canticle by Ken Scholes follows up the author’s debut novel Lamentation. Canticle opens up six months after the desolation of the city of Windwir with the various characters we were introduced to in the previous novel having moved forward into their new roles in the suddenly changed world. Like Lamentation before it Canticle splits the narrative into several pieces each following one of the main characters in the story while most of these perspectives follow the overarching thread of a single [...]


    8. Going deeper into the story of the Named Lands was a bit challengeing at times. As the plot and action became more complicated and the author's descritpions of the reveries of the characters lengthened I got a little bogged-down. I am still not clear on all the mystical beginnings of the different people-gorups represented in the story. The story now is one of "the life is in the blood" whether for good or evil which, unsuprisingly, is the basis for what is true of our existence. With blood pree [...]


    9. I saw this at the library and thought, why not, even though I was not terribly fond of the prequel. There are a lot of things about Scholes's writing that are good. But somehow this just doesn't have it: the proper mix of all the elements and techniques available to a writer makes you care about the characters and/or the story, or at least makes the journey pleasant. With this series I'm just not feeling it, although I'd like to. (It probably doesn't help that I can't shake the feeling that the [...]


    10. I'm not sure on 4 stars, but definitely better than 3. After two books, the trend I've noticed (if it even actually exists) is long, slow interludes of repeating for the reader 'what has come before,' punctuated by points of dramatic plot progression. Across the multiple POVs (somewhere around 5 to 7), the slow periods of plot development and the rapid moments of plot revelation all occur concurrently. I don't think I would be willing to label it an asset or liability at this point, but merely n [...]


    11. Втората част започва вихрено, събитията и интригите се заплитат яко и направо човек може да се почувства попаднал в средата на Уимски лабиринт който не познава. Историята се развива отлично, с неочаквани действия и решения на главните герои, предателства и култ въздигнал с [...]


    12. Hmmm. After being so impressed with the complexity of Lamentation's world and its potential -- I found myself diappointed in the scope of this second book. The story was interesting enough, I guess, but the overall narrow focus was a lost opportunity in my opinion. Canticle was also for the most part a joyless journey -- very dark. Still, some fun scenes, and intellectually stimulating -- worth a read, but I'm hoping for more from book #3.


    13. Nine months have passed since the destruction of Windwir. The kingdom of the Ninefold Forest Houses has taken up the mantle of 'the light', the collected wisdom of ancient times, and built a new library to preserve the remnants of what was lost when Windwir fell. However, war and civil war wracks the Named Lands and House Li Tam has sailed into the southern ocean, following a hint that previous events are being orchestrated by a hidden power for their own, inscrutable ends.Canticle is the second [...]


    14. Canticle by Ken Scholes- This is the second book in The Psalms of Isaak series. The first book is Lamentation, the third book is Antiphon and was recently released September 2010, the fourth book, Requiem, and the fifth book, Hymn, are yet to be released with no set release date at the time of this review. Ken Scholes has written only one other novel called Last Flight of the Goddess. He has written a number of short story and even has a book of his collected short fiction called Long Walks, Las [...]


    15. I loved LAMENTATION, and was anxious to return the world and its characters. This was a hard read. Darker, deeper, with long stars into some pretty twisty characters. There is loss and love and ultimately humanity. And yet there are moments of light among the darkness.Ken Scholes pulls no punches here, and while this book was not as uplifting as the previous volume, it still whets the appetite for what comes next.




    16. Fantastic story-tellingFull of imagination with twists and turns. I hope the next novel has more about Isaak in it. Good reading.


    17. Narrated by Scott Brick, William Dufris, Eliza Foss, Peter LarkinAudio Length: 16 hours and 43 minutesCanticle is the second in a planned five book series by Ken Scholes. The proceeding novel, Lamentation, was one the most highly regarded debut novels of 2009. The follow up novel, Canticle, was published a mere 8 months later, which in the fantasy genre is minor miracle compared to some of the other series. With Lamentation being so well received Mr. Scholes has his work cut out for him in order [...]


    18. How do you top a stunning debut novel? If you’re Ken Scholes, you release a sequel, titled Canticle. Canticle is the second installment in Ken’s The Pslams of Isaak series, the first being Lamentation. If you haven’t read Lamentation, I would strongly suggest you do. Not only does Canticle surpass Lamentation in every possible way, but, in my opinion, cements Mr. Scholes as one of the best Fantasy authors walking the planet today.From the publisher:Come back to the Named Lands in this comp [...]


    19. I listened to the audio-book version of this because that was the only edition my local library had. The book was read by several different readers--Scott Brick, William Dufris, Eliza Foss, and Peter Larkin--with each reader performing the sections for one or two characters. Unfortunately, I found I disliked almost all of them, with the very notable exception of the reader for Petronus. The reader for Neb and Rudolfo was especially bad. He made every sentence sound like it ended in a sigh. He ma [...]


    20. This is a much darker and more disturbing book than the first volume, Lamentation. I still enjoyed it, but not as thoroughly as I had hoped. The descriptions of cuttings (aka torture) are the stuff of nightmares and the forces that seem to be sweeping this world without check make me wonder if free will exists in this place. I'm glad there are more volumes to follow and I'm hoping for more relationships involving real friendship and puzzles that seem a little less demonic. Description:Things are [...]


    21. More than any other book released in 2009, I was most looking forward to Canticle, the second volume in Ken Scholes' Psalm of Isaak series. Scholes came out of nowhere with the amazing Lamentation (The Psalms of Isaak), and I was dying to see where he would take this powerful new fantasy series.Lamentation ended with an uneasy peace after the Desolation of Windwir (Scholes' equivalent of the Vatican). That peace is shattered quickly in Canticle when blood magicked intruders storm a feast held by [...]


    22. For about the first half of this book I was confused, angry, and disappointed. A large part of this might have to do with the fact that I hadn't read the first book in the series in over a year, and had forgotten a lot of things, but a lot of it was also the fact that there is absolutely no exposition in this book. Names and dates and plot points are just thrown out there like facts, sometimes not to be explained for hundreds of pages, and you just have to trust that they will be explained event [...]


    23. I'm not too happy with this series. There are aspects to it that are very attractive and make me want to read all the way through to the end. I think the author has created a fascinating world filled with fascinating characters and stories. I just wish that he would get out of the way and let the characters and stories come through.One problem is that there are plenty of hints that there is a lot more going on than meets the eye, but very few of these hints get born out into fulfilled promises. [...]


    24. This is the second book in the Psalms of Isaak series, and once again it concentrates upon a series of interesting characters, primarily Jin, Rudolfo, and Isaak. The mysteries encountered in the first book deepen; I won't say more than that because I don't want to give anything away. If you have not read the first book of the series I suggest you start there. The Psalms of Isaak stories are engrossing, fascinating and beautifully written; the stories are post-apocalyptic (set in a future world t [...]


    25. Windwir, capitol of the Named Lands, lies in ruins. The City States of the Delta are in revolt against the authority of the Overseer, trying to establish democracy. Rudolfo, the Gypsy King, and his wife, Jin Li Tam, are in the Nine-Fold Forest, trying to re-create the great library of the Androfrancines that was destroyed in Windwir. Jin Li Tam is pregnant and delivers a son that may not survive. During the Firstborn Feast of this son, blood-magicked, invisible assassins kill the heir to the thr [...]


    26. This second installment of "The Psalms of Isaak" delivered just what I expected. Scholes has smoothed out some of the rough edges that were apparent in Lamentation but kept the same great descriptive style that made me love that first novel. Picking up where that book left off, CANTICLE continues to expand the story and the very unique world it takes place in. Intrigue, politics, and mystery are still the main focus here, and you soon realize that much of what you thought you understood after th [...]


    27. With Canticle I started minutes after I finished the first book in this series; Lamentation. I loved the first book and could not wait to get my head into this story, and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed this story more than the first book, as things got a lot weirder, and a lot larger. What players we had in the first book have now become more or less important than we thought, and new players we never knew existed come into play, all setting a stage for things to come.The story starts nine mo [...]
