This is actually the first half of a two-volume arc so there isn't much to say apart from 'good start' at the moment.
In SummaryHasekura-sensei returns to Holo, Lawrence, and Col as they pursue rumors of ancient wolf bones and re-encounter Eve, the cunning merchant who betrayed Lawrence in Lenos. This arc is less about trade and more about intrigue in a politically and religiously divided town so you won’t come away with an economics lesson. However, you may be entertained by Kerube’s power struggle if you have the patience for Hasekura-sensei’s roundabout storytelling style.The ReviewAfter last volume’ [...]
It was a decent installment, but only getting half of the story and leaving off with a cliffhanger was not fun and did take away some of the enjoyment.
The author commented that he had taken a long time to write this volume, and it sounded like he had a bit of writer's block born of anxiety or inspirational exhaustion. Light novel series publishing schedules tend to be pretty brutal in Japan, judging by what I've read about the publishing industry there, so I'm not surprised.The writer's block did seem to show through at the beginning of the book, even through the translation to English. It was a bit rougher than his usual storytelling, and it [...]
If the story concluded on this volume, it would be a 5 star. To be honest, best S&W book since book 5. The duo is back, Eve is back, Col is a nice addition to the story! Looking forward to the conclusion of the story on book 9!
Continua la trama. ExelentemeEl autor continúa la trama de intrigas de forma exelente. Ya no es una historia por libro, sino que que ya tenemos una trama principal
Finally I see some Paganism up ahead.
This volume, as the name suggests is the first part in a two-part tale and I believe that it does its job quite nicely. Just like Lawrence, you are constantly wanting to find information about what started this particular part of the journey only to be handed a bombshell of information at the very end, which sets up the next part of the story to be truly entertaining. So far I am excited for what is to come next, but I really do want to see Lawrence profit a bit monetarily. He is a merchant, but [...]
February Reading: Spice and Wolf Volume 8This volume talked about how they escaped the hands of the christian cities with the help of the merchant trade line. Now the pagan god is even closer to her destination of reaching her homeland in the north. Holo, Lawrence, and Col as they pursue rumors of ancient wolf bones and re-encounter Eve, the cunning merchant who betrayed Lawrence in Lenos. This arc is less about trade and more about intrigue in a politically and religiously divided town so you w [...]
Hearing rumors of a "leg bone of the wolf" being used as an artifact of the Church to showcase its power, Lawrence and Holo head to the site to gather more information. Holo can't just turn away from what might be a relic of her own kind, after all. Of course, upon arrival, the travelers find that the town is the center of a giant trade dispute! Seems that Col will be getting a lesson in microeconomics! **
In following Eve to ask of the wolf god's bones, Lawrence, Holo, and Col become caught up in something far larger and more dangerous than expected, finding themselves in the dark until they're too caught up to extract themselves. The next volume continues this story, and I look forward to reading it.
Back to form with this one. An interesting (although the ending is unresolved until the next book) plot with good dialogue. I was a little worried about the addition of Col, but so far he has been a good character and the dialogue between Holo and Lawrence still keeps me interested in the series. I also enjoy the return of Eve to the series.
Mate, Eve is the most f***ing awesome character ever! I'd be all in for a series focused solely on her.Aside from this confession, it was disappointing to get only half of the story, especially when no trade has taken yet.
I like how all of Lawerence's conversations just fly past my head. There is so much I have to learn.
The trouble that Lawrence and Holo find themselves in kind of scares me most of the time. I'm expecting great things from The Town of Strife II.
Um pouco mais fraco que o volume anterior, mas como, basicamente, é só metade da história vamos ver se no seguinte se redime.
