4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent series starter 19. Juni 2000
When I bought the entire Artefacts of Power series (Aurian is merely the first), I had picked it as more of a wild card than an actual series I had to read. Now four books later I'm definately glad I bought them. Maggie Furey has created a well thought out world in both the physical and metaphysical sense. The countries and thier inhabitants are very believable in this series (thus making the physical), while the unique system of magic Ms Furey has created is among the best I have ever seen (the metaphysical). But apart from the creative side, I found Ms Furey's style to be quite enjoyable to read. She has a gift that enables her to describe convaluted plots and characters in a simple and fast-paced way. Although I'm used to reading heavy, complicated writing styles, I always enjoy entertaining styles such as the one Maggie Furey writes with. It is the smooth flowing and simple writing of Maggie Furey that allows one to read all four books in such an abnormally short time.
There is only one thing I disliked about this romantic-fantasy adventure, and that was how it all tied together in the last book. I won't spoil anything here, but I found that the majority of Dhiammara had a great plot which was tainted by being compacted into such a small space. The ending to the entire series was very rushed, giving the impression that Ms Furey tried to fit the plots of two books into one single volume. Nevertheless, Aurian and the Artefacts of Power are some of the better fantasy books I've read and a good entrance by Maggie Furey into the world of novel writing.

I started reading Aurian because I noticed it had done well and thought that might indicate quality. Wrong.
The premise was interesting. The execution was overly structured and stiff, the issues ("see me as a sexually attractive woman, my warrior father-figure!"; evil guy of power wants to use and abuse -- sexually and otherwise -- the virtuous yet flawed protagonist) and the cultures (medieval Europe, the middle east) tired and worn. Aurian reads like the product of an overly long D&D session.
However, I kept reading, mostly to see just how predictable and annoying it could get. That was where Aurian did not disappoint. It was awful, and reading it was like poking a bruise: it hurts, but you're fascinated by the pain.
And, as another reviewer noted, the last 100-200 pages are nothing but a round robin of "Mea culpa, mea culpa--we're in danger--mea culpa, mea culpa!"
I had forgotten what bad writing is, but this book really reminded me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compltetly unputdownable. 13. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I read the whole series from start to finish and it revolusionized my life. I've never been a big fan of fantasy till one day i was walking about in the local library and it captured my eye. I borrowed it, took it home, and could absolutly not tear my eyes away from it till I'd finished. I also showed it to my friend, who then discovered, much to my joy, the other books in the series. I was hooked, and still am. i can not wait to read more of Maggie fureys books!! The Artefacts of Power series is compelling, scintilating, fast paced and magnificently sculptured. I never knew one book (well, 4) could change my life and outlook so dramatically. For me, Aurian and the world she lives in is real, and somewhere in my soul, forever will be.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favorite books! 24. Juli 2000
I could not put this book down once I began to read it. As soon as I finished I went right out to the book store and purchased the next one. I needed to know what would happen next. I have now read all the Artifacts of Power books. This series has taken up residence as one of my two favorite of all time!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Female Characters At Last 31. Mai 2000
Von "jkucan"
This held my interest as no others have in a while. Aurian the heroine is a great female character who reflects a more realistic depiction of a woman than most. Women are as brave, courageous, strong and clever as men and these characteristics are emphasised in Aurian. This is a classy book which will entertain the reader with its twists and turns.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An adequate read 26. März 2000
Von varcel
A thoroughly unispired book. Though the main characters show some depth, this is vastly overshadowed by the hordes of cardboard cutout characters that make up the rest of the cast. Further, nearly all characterization is the sledge-hammer method: If a character is a coward, you're told he's a coward, rather than being shown his cowardice. While this can be a useful technique, it really gets on the nerves, especially as you're introduced to character after character, thoroughout the book, each one accompanied by a 'resume'. ALl that being said, though, and it's not a bad book. It's readable, and somewhat enjoyable. If you're looking for something to read, and there's scant else, then this is a safe choice.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not just a "chicks" book 29. Januar 2000
Von Gwwen
Strong character and plot development says it all. Ms Furey's imagination knows no limitations from the Magefolk to Mortals to Winged Folk to Phaerie to the Leviathans all are developed with attention to history and detail of their race. Oh, dont forget the dragon! You are brought into a world that is hard to leave or in this case put down. If you like David Eddings, Raymond E. Feist and Terry Goodkind, you'll like this series.

This is a very absorbing, fast paced book. The many charactors in the book could have a series all their own. The rest of the series is just as good. Lesen Sie weiter...
