Product Description

Review

Praise for the Quicksilver Trilogy:

‘“Quicksilver Rising” is brilliantly conceived and beautifully constructed. From the first gripping action scene it had me hooked. It has all the ingredients to become a classic of the genre.’ David Gemmell

‘Nicholls tells a story into which the reader is dragged as willing victim. He has an eye for action and character, keeps the pace high, plot finely tuned and pages turning; and in “Quicksilver Rising” has delivered a hugely entertaining read.’ James Barclay

‘Stan Nicholls puts modern dialogue into the mouths of high fantasy characters and echoes of our politics into the kingdoms he creates. Easily as much fun as you’d expect.’ Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Guardian

‘Nicholls knows his stuff … deft characterization … full of action, magic, romance and politics.’ Starburst

Exhilarating, innovative fantasy writing … delivered with tremendous panache.’ Publishing News

‘A cracking blend of high fantasy adventure and thought-provoking political thriller – a real feast for intelligent imaginations.’ Louise Cooper

’Fast-paced, high adventure … a bare-knuckle fight with a magic punch.’ Mark Chadbourn

Quicksilver Twilight

Book three of the Quicksilver Trilogy

Stan J. Nicholls

Stan Nicholls is the author of the much acclaimed "Orcs" novels and the "Nightshade Chronicles". Stan has just finished writing his third fantasy series named "The Quicksilver Chronicles" of which "Quicksilver Twilight" is the third and concluding part.

The world of the Quicksilver Trilogy is full of magic. Magic acts like technology works in our modern world. The more money a person has, the more magic he can poses. But magic is also used by the controlling, and rivalling, empires to repress its civilians.

In this final part of the "Quicksilver Trilogy" all of the key-players of the previous two books come together on the Diamond Isle, home of the Resistance. Reeth Caldason, the main character of the book, is cursed with strange visions and immortality. As the only survivor of the massacre of his tribe he seeks revenge. Joining him in his fight with the rebels against the empris are Kutch Pirathon, sorcerer's apprentice and Serra Adracis, once captain of an elite fighting unit of one of the empires. Reeth's only hope to be cured is by finding the so called Source.

After the betrayal by one of the members of the resistance things are not going as planned. On the Diamond Island food supply is becoming a bigger problem every day. And not even half of the planned amount of rebels have made it to the island which will make its defends against the empires practically impossible. Besides that he seas around the isle are infested with pirates trying to take the isle for them self. And to make thins worse, Kinsel Rukanis has fallen into the hands of the cruel pirate Kingdom Vance.

Format: Paperback
Firstly I should say that I am a fan of Nicholls and have read the first two books within this trilogy. The Orc trilogy was an exceedingly enjoyable piece of writing, so much so that it's almost difficult to believe that the same author has come up with this rather disappointing final book of the Quicksilver trilogy. I was never a fan of Gemmell (rip) but can't understand why he rated it so highly. The plot does move at a reasonable pace but it's predictable and the conclusion is rammed into a couple of short chapters which negates the dramatic conculsion the trilogy should have had and which I suspect the author was aiming for. One of the main characters revelations (I wont spoil it) lasts for all of 2 pages before being conveniently cut short by another plot development. However, it's the character dialogue that really lets the book down. Almost all of the main characters are extremely stale and wooden and preach moralistic little snippets to each other at every opportunity. With a couple of exceptions (Melyobar the mental prince is a good character) one gets the impression that Nicholls is far more comfortable writing dialogue between Orcs and freaks than he is between humans. Compared to the masterly character interaction by authors such as O' Brian and MacDonald Fraser (and yes, these are different genres) the blandness of Reeth, Serrah and company is actually quite disturbing! This is an average book within a average trilogy and unless you are a big fan of the author I would not bother making the investment.
