Product Description

Review

It's a definite hands-down great read . . . the characters, the mysteries, the background history, the cultural complexity were all so intriguing I couldn't stop reading (Elizabeth Moon on COLD MAGIC)

Elliott pulls out all the stops in a wildly imaginative narrative that will ring happy bells for fans of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

It's been a while since a scene in a book made me exclaim out loud, but that scene where the cold mage first turns up and all the lamps start going out, and what follows . . . I won't spoil it, but simply say I ripped through this book faster than I have any larger sized fantasy for quite some years. Kate is writing some of the best fantasy around right now (Trudi Canavan on COLD MAGIC)

I loved this book, and it earns a spot on my top 10 favourites of the year. I cannot wait for Cold Steel! (BOOK SMUGGLERS on COLD FIRE)

Book Description

The final volume in this historical fantasy of dragons and politics in the New World, the Spiritwalker trilogy is fantasy that's perfect for fans of Anne McCaffrey or Naomi Novik's Temeraire series. Now out in paperback.

I was desperately waiting for Cold Steel to come out, after thoroughly enjoying the first two books in the series. I loved the character of Kat, as she is a strong, intelligent, witty heroine, a woman you could imagine being friends with. Therefore, I was quite disappointed to find that she became wet, over-dependent and accepting. Despite this, Bee seemed to develop and become like the original Kat, a woman of strength and character. I also absolutely loved Kat's brother, Rory, who provided the light relief and a welcome criticism of Kat's character changes. Nonetheless, I still thoroughly enjoyed the book and I found the climax to be thrilling.
As an aside, if you are a bit of a grammar nazi (like me) these are not the books for you; the proof-readers should never be employed again, as the punctuation and sentence separation is appalling! (Yes, I'm an English teacher!)
All-in-all, a satisfactory ending to the series but not a completely engrossing one.

I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but found this one went nowhere for a good 45% percent of the book. If I'd read one more description of what clothes the "hero" was wearing I think I'd have screamed, it's a relief to know I never need to read the words "dash Jacket" again. The narrative just didn't move for large chunks of the story and I think the author would have done better to make the first two books longer and forgotten about the third. Nothing really happens till the last few chapters. Bit of a shame really as I don't normally get bored reading a book, but sadly with this one I did.

I enjoyed the trilogy. But it's a very detailed world that the author has created, and by the time I read this third book, I had forgotten most of the details in the first two (I wish there was a plot summary of the first two books in this one...). The details were somewhat overwhelming at times (especially the endless details and discussions about clothes) and as a result the going was slow. Still, the characters were great, plot was interesting, I loved the prose and the ending was very satisfying.

Unrealistic, irritating, slow moving and poorly structured - these are just a few of the terms I'd use to describe Cold Steel, the third book in Kate Elliot's Spirit Salker trilogy. After a solid first two books, my expectations were reasonably high. To say the book didn't live up to them would be a bit of an understatement.

The structure of the book is a disaster. For almost the entire first half, nothing happens in the main plot and nothing is achieved by any of the characters. In points, it was so dull I would definitely have put it down if it were the first, rather than the third, book. Then, with so few pages left to resolve so many issues, the second half is incredibly rushed, with key plot points being handled in a few absurd paragraphs.

There are many other issues I could mention, from the main character (literally) becoming a magic killing machine, the ridiculous sentiment of a guy with a hundred followers overcoming not one, not two but grew larger, superior allied forces with minimal losses despite an inferior strategy, the authtor's utter obsession with 'dash jackets'. Oh dear.

If you can possibly manage to go without reading the finale, I suggest you don't waste your money.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 July 2013
Format: Paperback
Having loved the second book in the Spiritwalker series I really couldn't wait to get my hands on this the third book to continue the adventure in Kate's wonderful world. As with the previous offerings the characters are great, the title has some great twists and when added to a story that will keep the reader thoroughly happy all round makes this a great tale. Throw into the mix a wonderful romantic addition top notch pace and all round I was a more than happy reader. Great stuff.

Having enjoyed all of Kate's series' this book was disappointing. Firstly after a two year gap since the last a good summary of the past would have been good. On my Kindle the map was unreadable. There was too much meaningless guff about clothes and it was too long by 30%. When it was good it was very good.
I will no doubt buy her next series but will not start until they are all out.

Thought the pace was good, I didn't feel it took too long for things to happen. Glad the ending wasn't too abrupt, things were set up to go on after the climatic events had passed. Really recommend this and the series in general! Also for a person who really hates cliche'd romance stories I really like the thread passed through this story. :)

As all previous books of Kate Elliott, this book continued in its pace and ended in a satisfying and good finish - as to my opinion.
