Heartland is just as solid as as the previous novel, Lightbreaker.
Although this second foray into the thaumaturgical hangs together somewhat more cohesively than the first, I think.
The stakes are raised in this book, and an old flame returns to rather complicate things.
What do occult secret societies do? Fight each other over power, of course, especially when some sort of succession is involved.
Things are rather more at the sharp end if the Spear of Destiny and the Holy Grail are involved - which, of course, will call for swordplay amidst all the magic.
Quite enjoyed this novel.
