5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series
For years, Magiere and Leesil have sought a long-forgotten artifact, even though its purpose has been shrouded in mystery. All Magiere knows is that she must keep the orb from falling into the hands of a murdering Noble Dead, her half-brother Welstiel. And now, dreams of a castle locked in ice lead her south, on a journey that has become nothing less than an...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but still acceptable
If I'm going to be blunt with this one its not been my favourite of the series and it felt like a stumbling block for the author's almost as if they've written a filler where not much happens in order to extend the overall story arc. Don't get me wrong it is the typical type of fantasy fare that you've come to love from this husband and wife team but it really didn't...

This review is from: Child Of A Dead God (Paperback)
If I'm going to be blunt with this one its not been my favourite of the series and it felt like a stumbling block for the author's almost as if they've written a filler where not much happens in order to extend the overall story arc. Don't get me wrong it is the typical type of fantasy fare that you've come to love from this husband and wife team but it really didn't accomplish much with the ending more of a fizzle than a bang. What has worked extremely well as usual is the banter between the principle protagonists as each continues to add their own emotional aspects and their strengths along with weaknesses into the plot. Still a reasonable book but against others of the series definitely not the strongest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 7 Jun 2008
This review is from: Child of a Dead God (Hardcover)
I'm not sure where this is really going anymore. It's gone from being a fun and quirky adventure/fantasy story to a bit of a whinge fest. The humour's gone, Wynn is quickly becoming the bane of my life and for some reason the dog seems to be getting more page time that Leesil and Magiere.
I wish they would bring back the magic of the first two books. The characters relationships were more compelling, the villains were top notch and, if nothing else it had the scene in the bar with Leesil and rat-boy "Why-wont- you-die?"Classic!!! If you've got a few hours to chill, sit back and read something fun, which is a tiny bit tongue in cheek, then they were perfect. Now it's turning into ANOTHER epic!!!
I can appreciate depth in any character, but for the love of Mike make it more interesting!!! If it really is the conclusion then that kind of sucks and If not I hope the next one is a lot better!!!

This review is from: Child of a Dead God (Hardcover)
For years, Magiere and Leesil have sought a long-forgotten artifact, even though its purpose has been shrouded in mystery. All Magiere knows is that she must keep the orb from falling into the hands of a murdering Noble Dead, her half-brother Welstiel. And now, dreams of a castle locked in ice lead her south, on a journey that has become nothing less than an obsession.

Accompanying Magiere and Leesil are the sage Wynn, their canine protector Chap, and two elven assassins-turned-guardians who must fight their distrust of this sister of the dead. For forces more powerful than they are rallying around Magiere, arming her for the conflict to come. Because finding the orb may be just the beginning of the challenges that await her...

Just gets better and better....closer and closer...love always wins...ahhhh so sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant series., 11 Jan 2009
I cant be bothered with relating the whole story and pointing out every detail of mild concern, so ill cut to the chase.

I absolutely loved this series; the story is deeply woven and continues on (hopefully to a satisfying ending). I love a brilliant story line, which leads to unexpected happenings and suspense that keeps you reading for hours- these books have that effect. The characters are captivating, as if i were there with them. I love the blood and guts, there's no sugar coating where the Hendee's are concerned- the fight scenes are well described. The setting is very vividly depicted and i found myself wanting to be in the book.

I'm a bit disappointed that the story will not continue with Magiere and Leesil, but the plot is promising so i cant wait to read on. Bottom line is, read these books if you like fantasy. Brilliant.
