Book Description

3 Jan 2013 The Chronicles of Siala
Shadow Harold, master thief, and his band of companions have reached the deep catacombs of Hrad Spein, where Harold must go in alone to face unknown horrors and retrieve the Horn that will save Siala. He is magically bound to the Key with which the dark elves sealed Hrad Spein, and the Master's servant, the sorceress Lafresa, is close behind him. Harold and his companions must face H'san'kors, evil magic and the agents of the Nameless One, but unless they find the long-lost Horn darkness will overrun the realm of Valiostr. Harold's destiny is tied to the fate of the kingdom...

4.0 out of 5 stars The adventure continues 22 May 2012
Format:Paperback
Where to begin? The journey started in previous books has come to an end, well ok not really. It's just getting started if you think about it.

Harold (I do love thieves) and his gang are approaching Hrad Spein. Kli-Kli, it's always good with a comic relief, the dark elves, and human warriors are with him. And they have lost a lot of friends already. Pehov does have a way of killing off people. But then not all should make it, people must fall during the way cos it's a dangerous road so I liked that he is not afraid to do just that.

Much of the book takes places in the darkness that is Hrad Spein. Fights, horrors, revelations, all to save a kingdom and the world. So much more than others think are actually going on. The Dancers, the creators of world, the Houses, and the person that created Siala. Not to mention that Harold is supposed to be a dancer too, which means that he could create a world. He is such an unlikely hero and that makes him better.

The second part took place outside of Hrad. The quest is not yet done and more battles are to come. It's fighting and quest fantasy.

I did feel that there is so many more stories still to tell and I would like to stay in this world, but sadly this was the end of this trilogy. But Pehov has created a very interesting world, and a world I would he happy to visit again. And it feels like home too, it's a world I know, yet it's so very new.

Some of the fight scenes at the end did feel a bit jumpy, but eh, that's life and war. And something did happen that made me sad, but again that's life and sadness is needed in books too.

Conclusion:
I do think there needs to be another Harold trilogy ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Completion of Shadow Harold's tale, or is it? 29 April 2012
Format:Paperback
I've been waiting for this book to come out since I first read the first book of the trilogy Shadow Prowler and then last year read the second book. It's felt like a long wait as I loved the first two books. I read it all in a weekend as I didn't want to put the book down. I've been careful not to fall in love with the characters too much as the bodycount in these books has been quite high and the third book continues with that. I enjoyed the descriptions of the Forest and also loved the detail of Shadow Harold's journey through Hadr Spein with all the right ingredients for a thief to deal with such as traps and poisons. Will he retrieve the Rainbow Horn? What treachery will he have to deal with?

If you enjoy fantasy then this is the trilogy for you. There is something unusual about Pehov's writing, and not just because it has been translated. There is a quirkiness to his world and characters that I enjoyed, in particular Kli-Kli the goblin. Pehov is not Tolkien (who gets 5 stars) but I still have been able to read these books several times over and no doubt will read the trilogy all the way through again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping read> 3 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this Trilogy right the way through. Reminds me of Slippery Jim Digris in the Stainless Steel Rat but a good book in its own right with a welcome touch of humour

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to form 25 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved Shadow Prowler but found Shadow Chaser a bit of a diversion from the main storyline. Shadow Blizzard is more of a return to form. However, the sections in Hrad Spein are a bit 'gamey'.
