There were so many plots and intrigues...characters and locations that I knew the final book would have to be either huge or things glossed over. Unfortunately it was the latter.....character development stopped and all the loose ends were quickly tied up at the end. A big disappointment to what was a very imaginative and creative new world and culture...just wish that it had been 5 books and not 3!
Finn (Katla's twin) is a right bastard. He was the kind of child that tortured cats. You know, that kind of guy. Then life catches up with him. Something happens to us as we grow older. Whether we solidify or become like waves seems arbitrary. Finn solidified and in the end that turned out to be unfortunate for him.
As a reader, I appreciate it when I get a look at the propaganda system an author has grown up during without getting the feeling that the writer is trying to push her points of view down my throat. In fact, I love that because this has not been one of my strengths. Jude Fisher manages it.
So, Death! Death is for many an unwanted companion. For those who encounter Tanto Vingo and Tycho Issian the opposite could be said. The evil twins might be one term that applies to them - except their motivation is different. Tycho is trying to eradicate all the "evil" from the world by burning people while Tanto gets his kicks from torture and mayhem. Just hearing their names brings terror to the hearts of the people of Istrian. A worse combination could probably never have been invented.
Tanto's favorite victim is Saro. Saro was gifted/cursed with an overly active empathic ability toward the end of Fool's Gold. Since then, he feels and sees all that goes on in a person at the time that he touches them. I wonder what it must be like to have such an ability? Pretty freaking terrible I would imagine. After Tanto figured out what was going on, Saro was mentally tortured.Read more ›
I found this story so believable, so utterly convincing that I found my mind wandering back to it during every single waking hour - with half of my mind still remaining in the familiarity of the world of Elda. Fisher certainly knows how to blend myth with magic beautifully together in a vibrant, colorful world full of danger and fascinating premise. The Goddess of Elda, the Rose of the World, is a likeable and interesting character whose journey (up until becoming the wife of King Raven of the Northern Isles) was wrought with dangers to great and terrible to imagine. Travelling across vast oceans wherein majestic great ships lie, I was once more plunged into a tale akin to `Pirates of the Caribbean' or Narnia's: voyage of the dawn trader as the ships of the southern empire become the centre of the holy war. It is the divide between the North and South that makes this starkly dramatic, remarkable tale so distinctive, for the lives of each character differs greatly as you observe varying perspectives.
Packed with bloodthirsty, electrifying battle scenes and competitive combat this otherworldly saga is one of such vast substance and scope.Read more ›

I've really enjoyed this series of books 3 was enough to do the story justice but I do rather miss the characters. Well worth a read but of course you don't start with this onePublished 15 months ago by Mrs Janice White
Well written, engrossing. Not an epic but enough to get your teeth into. Will look out for more of her workin the futurePublished on 23 April 2013 by Maia
