The title character is, frankly, vile. Some reviewers profess sympathy for him but I never had any. There are other major characters and the protagonist of the first book is important in this one as well.
There is rich description of places and people and action scenes enough to please anyone. This comes close to joining that first rank of five-star where series novels rarely stand.
The Kindle edition does have annoying typos but they don't interfere, at least not for me.
Reading this book without reading the first one would probably be OK but not ideal.

I'm giving this one star based not on the book itself, which is quite good, but on the Kindle edition put out by Pageturner publications. Apparently, they used OCR software to do the conversion from print, but did no proofing. There is an error on almost every page--sometimes two or three. This makes it particularly difficult because the author uses a few archaic terms, so sometimes I couldn't tell if he was just using an unfamiliar word or expression, or if it was a spelling error. It's a shame, because it is a good book.

Joris of the Rock is the kind of book writers are only trying to do today; the protagonist is definitely an anti-hero, even crossing over into true villainy on occasion, but you can't help caring about him and being swept up in his adventures, for good or ill. Barringer created an historically authentic, realistic, 3-dimensional human being with all the complexity of a deep, psychological thriller, yet the writing is in no way heavy-handed; this is a book young readers can enjoy as well as adults (in fact, it might be a good one for thirteen-year-old boys who are starting to think the life of an outlaw sounds romantic...)

Barringer also created one of the strongest female protagonists ever to grace the pages of a fantasy i Red Anne...WOW! And Raoul, hero of the first book, GERFALCON, makes an appearance of course, though in disguise. I can understand why this wasn't a big hit back when it was written -- it's WAY too raw, violent, and overtly sexual for Edwardian tastes, I'd think. But it's long overdue for the credit it deserves as one of the finest fantasy books, in one of finest fantasy trilogies, ever written.

Very well written, surprisingly liberal outlook for a book written nearly 100 years ago.
