Killian is torn between pledging help to Miro and the Alturans on the one hand, and protecting the Imperial Capital - the final target of the Lord of the Night - on the other. And all the houses are more interested in rebuilding after the prior war, rather than preparing for the next one.
Then the revenant army of the Lord of the Night strikes and the rest is more or less a sequence of action events, from the large epic battles on the one hand, to small unit skirmishes inbetween. This element is very well managed and the action scenes are quite gripping.
On the other hand the story development often has a deus ex machina element to it - too often there seems to be a miraculous resolution to the dire situations encountered and in that sense the books are a bit less exciting on the overall level than works by George R.R. Martin or Tom Lloyd.
Still, it is a fitting finale to the series and it came just at the time before the world starts running out of steam.
James Maxwell has spun such a fantastic story with a rich history it has quickly become one of my favourites alongside classics such as the lord of the rings.
The leading characters had everything required to laugh and cry alongside them.
Most Highly recommended
I went through so many emotions. The book is well written with fantastic characters who aren't transparent and have a lot of depth.
I actually felt very sad when I finished it purely because that's the end, over, finite :(
I didn't think I could find a fantasy series that's on a par with Feist's Magician series, but I hit the mother lode with James Maxwell.
I would highly recommend this four book saga, it is riveting!
I have also read all of the Game of Thrones series and I find the Evermen sagas a much more comfortable read - at least the heroes don't keep having their heads sliced off!!
My advice is to start at the beginning and the characters will soon seem like new friends whose stories you want to learn.
They are true good -v- evil plots that have you speed reading to see what happens.
OK: -- lets put this up first: I don’t dislike it, but I didn’t read it either.
(I LISTENED TO IT.)
- And with the whisper synch price of the eBook and Audio combo -- it’s a bargain not to be overlooked.
But all those fan boy [Five Stars,] actually makes me wonder what’s going on here with all the blind devotional, and very favourable reviews.
- It was good, but it wasn’t **that** good.
[Usage:] If you’ve got a long commute, or drive to Scotland: (or England,) then it’s fine and worth listening to: and it has a goodish plot line and concept.
- But I can tell you one thing that drove me to despair, was the *luck* side of the story telling, it is something that you will find frustrating.
In my opinion all the book ratings are …
5 STARS for CONCEPT.
4 STARS for PLOT.
1 STAR for STORYLINE.
1 STAR for character development.
What badly lets them all down is the construction of the characters: they are written with a smarmy arrogant slant, they are sooooo damned goooood at what they do, meaning that they don’t even have to try: and having royal blue blood means they are the best, of the best. -- None of the players in the books are likable, and they are all wooden in their constructions.
- And Amber is either a stupid young kid, or a wise sage mom, or a powerful enchantress, or a dopy dewy eyed girl: all depending on how the plot is running, and the author needs her to do, say; run -- fight; scream: cry to push the story line on.
(Her painted and drawn character is downright awful.)
The worse thing that any writer can do: is use coincidence to drive the plot, and the author has done just that, and its been done constantly.Read more ›
