5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 25 Sept. 2014

From Start to finish each and every book in this series has been amazing. Whilst I loved the final ending I will miss all the characters. So well written.

As usual Ms Canavan reels you in like a fish on a hook. Two storylines that you know will intertwine in a big way but teasing you every inch of the way there. Bring on book 2.

I have really enjoyed the first three books in this four book series. Immersive, great characters and exchangers everywhere. Desperately awaiting the final instalment.

You, ms snyder are a God of authors. I was bowled over by this trilogy. Action, excitement, plot twists and a magic system that totally pulls you in. Characters you fall in love with, hate, hate then love. The glass series was excellent, this series was sublime.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'd have rated it higher.. but..., 10 Sept. 2013

Ok, So I have just finished this book, the last in the series of 3 and I will start of by saying, I liked them... but there were things I felt lacking.

There were hardly any plotlines or side stories going on outside of the main plotline. Whilst this helped with keeping your mind on one thing, there was not much of the usual style of reaching the end of a chapter at a climax for the next chapter to switch to another plot line that was relative to the main plotline...

I also felt that with the exception of the battle scenes, there was a lack of detailed narrative, the story just rolled on without any descriptions of buildings, landscapes, what people looked like etc. Though there was one other time the detail was quite eloquently included, which was the somewhat explicit sex scenes... it's a shame such detail did not appear as much elsewhere.

The final thing that kept distracting me, was the many many occasions the author used an incorrect character name or town name, it happened so often that I wondered if anyone had even proof read it as the name errors stuck out like sore thumbs.

Now, that negative stuff said, I do not regret reading it, the story is great, the characters are great.. I would recommend them to others.

A great end to a great series of 9 books.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book!, 28 May 2013

Totally hooked and that is rare for me. There is an abundance of fantasy fiction out there but only once in a while does it draw you in, tie you up and refuse to let you go.

1.0 out of 5 stars Already broken, 6 Sept. 2012

Connection port is not sturdy enough, it's only been two months and already it only connects properly if you pull the phone forward and hold it there, which defeats the object of a dock. Binned it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very immersive read for all ages, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Michael A. Rothman has managed to create a fantasy adventure suitable for all ages with this book. The detail provided is enough for anyhone to become enthralled in a world where a modern family are taken out of the world they know and inserted into one where they need to learn new crafts, trades and skills (Both social and magical) and it is done with so much panache that you feel you are embarking on this journey with them. I thoroughly enjoyed it and read the entire novel over two evenings as I was always at the stage of "oh ok then.. one more chapter before sleep". I am very much looking forward to the next in the series as well as any other books this marvelous author may bring my way....
