Product Description

Product Description

The final part of the Society of the Sword Trilogy.

A remote farm and meagre crops are a far cry from Ostenheim and the life of a banneret, but they are not far enough. For Soren to be free of Amero, there is only one answer.

In Ostenheim, Duke Amero presides over a war-weary population and an empty treasury, but still he hungers for more.

An Intelligencier uncovers the disturbing resurgence of sorcery in the city, while an avaricious colleague sees the chance to prove his worth to the Duke.

Enemies and allies emerge from unexpected places, as Soren must face his former patron and idol for a final reckoning.

The Telastrian Song follows The Huntsman’s Amulet and is the concluding part of the Society of the Sword Trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the trilogy 1 Sep 2014
By Paul Lynch VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first two books when they were published, and have just finished this one. I'll confess to not clearly remembering everything from before, as I was reading another fantasy trilogies with a remarkably similar background at the same time (the rather excellent Raven's Shadow by Anthony Ryan). However, I have to say that I have enjoyed this series, and someone picking up this book without having read the previous two wouldn't be at a great disadvantage.

What I liked: lots of little twists that made this series unique: rapier/epée based swordsmanship, an interesting, but mostly ignored, magic system, and the banking system. It wasn't really mentioned, but gunpowder, guns and cannons aren't present, nor are heavy two handers and the related plate armour. There's some thought behind that, but it hasn't been shown to us. A nice touch.

The first book (The Tattered Banner) was by far the strongest of the trilogy. It flowed, and had a certain joy in the writing that compelled me to read it, and I allowed that momentum to carry me through the rest. Both the second and the third books were rather episodic, as if the author didn't really have the heart to finish what he had started. This was apparent in a change in style, and not really reusing familiar characters from the first. In fact, only Soren and Amero from the first book play more than cursory roles in this, with a new character taking up many of the pages, and being really the principal actor in the story.

Despite this, I enjoyed the series, and would recommend it (certainly the first).

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine ending to the trilogy 27 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So here we are at the end of the trilogy. The first book, 'The Tattered Banner', I found a refreshing change from the typical swords-based fantasy, focused as it was around the rapier as the weapon of choice. It was in many ways a conventional coming of age story, a young man discovering unusual abilities in himself and learning to manage his talent, but lifted above the average by excellent writing and some awesome confrontations. The second book, 'The Huntsman's Amulet', was more of a boys’ own adventure, quite episodic and uneven, although hero Soren visited some intriguing locations and there were the usual array of terrific sword fights. And pirates!

This book feels a little slow to start. After some initial action, which convinces Soren that he and his lady love, Alessandra, will never be safe from the assassins sent by his former mentor and now arch-enemy Amero, he spends some time arranging matters so that he can return to Ostenheim with the sole objective of killing Amero. I was a little disappointed that Alessandra, a smart lady perfectly capable of wielding a sword when necessary and protecting herself, was parked in a place of safety so that Soren could go about his murderous business without having to worry about her. However, I could see the logic in it.

Then almost half the book passes with very little happening, as a number of additional characters are introduced, their motivations explained and their activities described in some detail. These are not uninteresting, but some of this felt a bit like filler. The eastern mage, for example, was an interesting character and I would very much like to have known more about his organisation the Twelve, their practices and rules, but in the end he was reduced to just another obstacle for Soren to overcome.
