5.0 out of 5 stars Successful conclusion 19 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dark Lady's Chosen really kept me in suspense. I simply couldn't put it down. Gail Martin found an interesting way of juggling the stories of over 6 key characters throughout the series. This book successfully brought all the plots together.

The fourth instalment continued to surprise me with a tale of magic, love, friendship and treachery. King Tris Drayke had to fight evil again and was about to be betrayed by somebody very close to him. Lord Jonmarc Vahanian was at war with rogue vayash moru and needed to find a way to safe his beloved. In Kiara's new homeland, Margolan, conspiracy was in place to bring harm to her and her friends. In Dark Haven, Carina tried to survive after Maleshe's vicious attack and shared her remaining strength with the victims of the local conflict.

Luckily, I discovered the Chronicles when all 4 books were already published. It was just great to read them one by one without a prolonged wait. I recommended The Chronicles of the Necromancer to all my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronicles of the Necromancer #4 10 April 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
King Martis "Tris" Drayke has wed Princess Kiara, daughter of King Donelan and successor to the throne of Isencroft. The marriage joins the crowns of Isencroft and Margolan until heirs can be born to place the kingdoms under separate rule once more. Now Queen Kiara is pregnant. Succession is assured. The time has come for Tris and his army to lay siege to Lord Curane's stronghold. The great energy river called the Flow is unstable, making it much more difficult for Tris and his mages to counter Curane's blood magic. The siege is going badly. Winter storms are fierce, food is scarce, and plague has broken out.

As Tris fights in the south, Kiara is in danger. A traitor hides within Shekerishet and several assassination attempts have been made against Kiara. Corruption within the Council of Nobles has cast suspicions on old friends, such as Master Bard Riordan Carroway, who now waits for his death.

Cam of Cairnrach, King Donelan's Champion, has been taken hostage to force Donelan into war. Cam has discovered the identity of the traitor whose actions betray both King Donelan and King Drayke (Tris). However, it looks as though Cam will die before he can send warning.

In Dark Haven, Lord Jonmarc Vahanian must deal with chaos caused by Malesh of Tremont. Malesh tried to change Lady Carina into one of the vayash moru (vampire). But her healer magic battled the Dark Gift, leaving Carina between - not alive, but not undead either. Now Malesh is leading rogue vayash moru and slaughtering entire villages of mortals. Unless Jonmarc can quickly stop Malesh's group, the future of the entire Winter Kingdoms will be full of blood.

***** FIVE STARS! Gail Z.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy Lite 22 Dec 2010
By SonicQuack VINE VOICE
Martin's fourth entry in this fantasy series continues where Dark Haven left off, King Tris laying siege to the rebel mage stronghold, Jonmarc in the middle of a vampiric war, Cam imprisoned and Kiara in fear of assassination. All that sounds very exciting, however there's a definitive lack of tension and suspense present. The plot in more deft hands might have been a thrilling fantasy tale, with Dark Lady's Chosen the narrative style is too simplistic and there are too few unrevealed cards to keep the story interesting. In all, it's too neatly packaged, not dark enough and too predictable. More suited to early adopters of the genre than readers who are well seasoned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fantasy 21 Feb 2010
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Making a name for herself this offering is the fourth part of her Necromancer Chronicles. If you haven't heard of it by now from established fans of the genre you're sadly far behind as her prose is fast becoming almost legendary with great story arcs and a touch of unpredictability that is winning her fans the world over. Add to the mix cracking fully rounded characters and you're getting a good idea of what a sheer joy her writing is to the reader. Obviously with this being the fourth part you can't just jump in but with each offering I've gone back and read the previous and noticed little things that I've previously missed on previous readings. Definitely an author to watch and if you have read it, the her next work will be out in 2011. Plenty of time for a pleasurable reread.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!! 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The whole series of the four books has been an epic tale to say the least and I have thoroughly enjoyed the series.. I am disappointed to say that the last book could have had a better ending. All of the characters were there and their investment personal story line finished but for me this last tale seems lacking somehow.. It is hard to describe but it lacked a certain punch and seemed to just fizzle out almost as if the ending became a non entity in relation to to the weight of the tale as a whole. Don't get me wrong, the books are well worth the investment of cost and time I just feel that there was something missing, a last twist or cliff hanger that would have left you with a more satisfying conclusion. That said I am still an avid fan of this author's work and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of her works.
