Book Description

1 Aug 2006 Age of the Five

Although the architect of the White's victory, Auraya's first taste of war has left her sleep filled with nightmares. She walks in fields of blood and gore while the dead rise in accusation. You killed us. You. It seems Auraya will know no peace while these nightmares haunt her, but the only one she trusts to help has vanished.

The Dreamweaver, Leiard, still struggling to come to terms with the ever more powerful memories of the long-dead Mirar, flees into the mountains with Emerahl, perhaps the last of the Wilds. Although not a Dreamweaver herself, Emerahl is powerfully gifted, and helps Leiard to make sense of his strange jumble of memories. What they discover will change his life forever.

And far to the south, the Pentadrians lick their wounds and set about finding a new leader. Peace, it seems, must wait a while yet ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book 2 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Last of the Wilds is the second book in the trilogy of the Age of Five, it starts where the last book left off and it changes between the main characters of the book giving their different perspectives on their intertwining lives. It's about an age ruled by five gods who give magical powers to mortals who range in ability with the elite being chosen to be immortals and commune the wishes of the gods to the gods followers. The story includes loyalty issues, love and deception. Well written and an excellent read, would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Shocking!!! 5 Aug 2006
Trudi Canavan seems incapable of disappointing! This new book lives up to all of my expectations! At first I was slightly disconcerted by the revelations that saturate the story but ultimately they make a highly impacting and satisfying read. To experience the full power of this book it is essential that you read Priestess of the White first. Now we have an agonising wait for the last installment in the trilogy...

4.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for book 3 21 July 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In some ways I liked this, the second installment of the "Age of the Five" series more than the first. Auraya has become a little less "goody two-shoes" and has shown some spark of character. Mirar and Emerahl have become far more interesting. On the other hand Imi, the wayward princess, is irritating and juvenile in a rather silly way.
However, the stage is set for an interesting theological denoument between the Gods of Northern and Southern Ithania, who don't believe in each other's existence, espeically with Mirar and co threatening to spill the beans about their past. I wonder whether the third installment will in fact end up being split over two volumes. There seems to be a lot going on and unless the end is quite rushed it may be difficult to fit it all in.
On the whole, this is an enjoyable piece of light reading and I am looking forward to the next installment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too slow 20 July 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Following on from 'Priestess of the White', this is a bit of a disappointment. I enjoyed Priestess and was looking forward to this, the next instalment, but the author has tried a different tack and while it is an interesting diversion, the story end up with too many sub plots and not enough tension. On the plus side there are some interesting aspects of the agendas of the various characters in the book from the Gods to the 'bad guys' which illustrate that good or bad is just a matter of perspective. Having said that, there are too many things going on and the pace is too slow to really enjoy the book.

So, in summary a weak 'middle book' but it looks like the scene is set for an interesting third and final book, so while I didn't overly enjoy this one, I will stick with it and hope for a good final segment.

5.0 out of 5 stars vast improvement 21 Sep 2006
I read the magician trilogy first and although I enjoyed the books, there were parts that were quite naive. The plot was great but the writing sometimes seemed a bit adolescent, not quite flowing, and this was slightly annoying at times. She's obviously got in a lot of practice by now so the writing in this and The Priestess of the White is much much better. Plot is great again. The books have a cosy feel but she doesn't protect the characters like eg David Eddings, where you can't get involved as it never feels that the characters are in any danger. Anything can happen and she keeps you guessing right the way through. Read it asap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 30 Aug 2006
By Joanna
Being a lover of her previous trilogy The Dark Magicians I thought I ought to give this trilogy, the age of the five, a go. I did and boy was I glad I did! It is stunning and kept me wanting more. This book, the last of the wilds, is the second installment in the trilogy and you really see the plot start to unravel and you meet a variety of new characters while seeing the old characters in a new light. Absolutely stunning would recommend to everybody. With a great many unexpected plot twists!
