Book Description

Two surprising allies have emerged to aid the embattled ruler in a struggle he must win: Cefwyn's two young sons. Aewyn Marhanen is the prince destined to rule. Aewyn's half-brother, Elfwyn Aswydd—the bastard son of the king and the sorceress Tarien Aswydd—has spent years unaware of his parentage, yet now it is his time to emerge and claim the gifted birthright he's been denied for so long.

But a dark, sinister magic has crept close to the young man and seized hold of the kingdom. Nothing is as it seems, as the bonds of family strain against the powerful forces that would see them undone—and the battle is joined to unmask and destroy the malevolence that threatens to unhinge the king's peaceful and fragile reign.

Format:Hardcover
Reading the first book in this series ('Fortress in the Eye of Time') I was initially put off by the comparatively relaxed pace and extended discussions of characters' thoughts and motivations. Once I got used to this, though, and got to know the characters, I found myself enjoying the series more and more and now see it as one of the most impressive things Cherryh has written. Of her other fantasy books, it reminds me most of her 'Rusalka' trilogy, though the world is much more fully developed (and there is a lot more politics).

The latest book in the series opens some time after 'Fortress of Dragons' and most of the plot centres on Cefwyn's two sons, Aewyn and Otter/Elfwyn, his illegitimate child by his now imprisoned enemy and political rival Tarien Aswydd. There is a sustained building of tension to a rather abrupt finish, clearly leaving the underlying problem unresolved for future books. This is my only slight disappointment with the book which was otherwise excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as the others but 18 Feb. 2013

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived in very good time and in great condition. After the exceptional standard of the others I thought it was just slightly disappointing as the plot seemed slightly contrived. But hopefully the next one (if there is another) will return to the initial brilliant standard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Guess what - its snowing again 11 July 2013

As a great Cherryh fan, I started on the Tristan Series with high hopes and mostly was not disappointed. However, I did find this final 'episode' less compelling than earlier ones and often had a sense of deja vue as I was reading it - maybe I read them all too close together!

More gold from cj cherryh. I think this was the best series she ever wrote, and I've read most of the canon, more than once.
