Book Description

23 Feb 2012 Paladin's Legacy (Book 3)

As threats build abroad, treachery strikes at home ... While King Kieri struggles to end the war that plagues his borders, his new subjects are becoming restless. His people include both humans and elves, and their uneasy accord is cracking under the demands of war.

Kieri didn't fully appreciate the danger until someone close to him is found slain in the woods, and his beloved new wife also finds her life in danger. Kieri must seek out the corruption within his grandmother's elvish court, or all he's achieved will turn to nothing.

Trouble also finds Dorrin Verrakai on the road, riding to command her kingdom's defences in the war torn provinces. Her family's dark power is rising again and it's down to her to root out the devastating influence of their illicit blood magic. Then her investigations reveal magery in the last place anyone expected.

And while mortals struggle, dragonspawn might yet set all their realms afire.

I felt I had to write this review, as when I purchased this for my Kindle there was only one scathing it almost put me off.

This book is mid series, not a series climax, which seems to be what my illustrious fellow reader is most miffed about. All these unresolved plot threads? Tut tut. Personally, after waiting what felt an eternity for Moon to return to Paks' world, I'm thrilled all is not going to be wrapped up in just 3 more books.

I won't give spoilers, save to say if the other reviewer can describe Arvid as "weepily religious" (not true...unhappy but now aware the gods are 'on his case' is more accurate, but we've all known that since the first trilogy, so the only change here is now he knows too), I wonder how they would have described Paks at the end of Divided Allegiance? Actually, Echoes has a lot in common with that book- much that is sad, a cliffhanger ending, yet still the sense throughout that good will prevail.

Moon created a complex world and I hope she lets us share in it for a good long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book in the middle of the series 10 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's an excellent book, but it's very much the middle of the series (currently projected as five books, so this is the mid-point): I found myself having to stop part way, go back, and re-read the first two volumes. Don't just leap in if you read the previous books last year, because there's very little recap and in a couple of places briefly explained but important events have happened to characters in-between the volumes.

Once I'd re-read vols. 1 and 2, I could see just how good vol. 3 is. It has to carry a lot of already existing characters, introduce a couple of new ones and - well, that would be spoilers. It does all this very cleverly - by the end of the volume we've not only progressed, we're in a darker, much more dangerous place.

I'm a bit surprised by the reviewer complaining about Arvid (the thief). Firstly, it's one of the basic premises of the series that in this world there are human saints and good gods, and they all actively aid their champions. Personally, I vastly prefer this to stories where powerful evil gods are coming out of the woodwork, but all the good gods seem to have retired to Dunmanifestin.

Secondly, to me, Arvid was the character I wanted to see much more of, and the character who had by far the most character development. It's true that development is mostly internal - he does get some exciting fight scenes, but not as many as others - but of all those characters 'chosen to fight for Good' he's the most interesting.

Because, unlike the others, he doesn't start as a good guy (and so far is only part-way there). He's a highly skilled and rather smug thief and assassin, born into the Thieves Guild, who begins the series unable to imagine that he might ever be anything else. This volume is where he really starts to become someone who might turn out to be a hero.

It's going to feel like a long wait for volume 4.

If you like the 'swords and sorcery' aspect of the fantasy genre then this should be just right for you. A very well-written series.
