Kurzbeschreibung

She's fought death and won. But how can she fight her fears?

Avry knows hardship and trouble. She fought the plague and survived. She took on King Tohon and defeated him. But now her heart-mate, Kerrick, is missing, and Avry fears he's gone forever.

But there's a more immediate threat. The Skeleton King plots to claim the Fifteen Realms for his own. With armies in disarray and the dead not staying down, Avry's healing powers are needed now more than ever.

Torn between love and loyalty, Avry must choose her path carefully. For the future of her world depends on her decision….

2.0 von 5 Sternen Wasted Potential 8. Januar 2014
Von DTM125 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The book itself was pretty boring. Plan, run, capture, someone's dead, oh wait no they're not, plan some more, travel. I also felt like the villains weren't really a part of the plot; I never really felt the danger from the main villains, and both the Skeleton King and Tohon felt like afterthoughts. *Mini Spoilers* We just meet the Skeleton King and his dastardly army and then he's dispatched. Tohon shows up at the very end, and the entire finale was incredibly anti-climatic. The epilogue or ending chapter was terrible. I felt like they're were so many loose ends that she just dealt with in a couple of unsatisfactory sentences.

As I kept reading this, I just kept thinking what an incredibly selfish person Avery was. She just kept running off to do her own thing and getting angry at the one person trying to save the realms who wasn't a complete psychopath, because he had the "bigger picture" in mind when he was dealing with her. Sorry Avery, you're not the center of the universe, and everything can't go your way. Literally, the entire book was spent with her just being like "well, I don't feel like doing that, so I'm going to leave even though people need me". Not cool.

Word Choice: Leered
Snyder kept using this to describe the interactions of hero and heroine. When I think of the word "leered" I think of unsavory characters and unsavory looks. Looks that are unwelcome, disgusting, and unnerving. But she kept using this over and over again to describe how they looked at each other. No. Just no. Poor word choice.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting, fast paced and romantic addition to the series. 13. Januar 2014
Von brandileigh2003 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Maria never ceases to amaze me with her writing, being so exciting, plot driven, romantic and the surprising plot twists.
I was into it the whole time, always wanting to keep reading, and find out what Avry would disobey and where her instincts would lead her next.
My heart was pounding wondering if against all hope that Kerrick would be alive and that he and Avry could get their happily ever after.
I still love the secondary characters, the monkeys, Flea and his new ability with the added trouble of wondering what is the moral choice and if the good can possibly outweigh the bad with his magic.
She knows how to write an enemy that you just want to hate. They do such evil things, and I never know what to expect from them next.
The ending worked well for me, and I am still in love with the characters. Although I am not sure if this is the last book in the series or not, I mean it gave them an ending sounding ending, but it also left some strings open, and I can't find any info about another book.

Bottom Line: Exciting, fast paced and romantic addition to the series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Somewhat Depressing and Drawn Out 31. Dezember 2013
Von The Book Runner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this volume somewhat depressing and, I hate to say it, drawn out. Kerrick is barely rescued from book 2 when he is missing in the first chapter of book3 and then spends most of the book drained and distant. None of their plans are ever accurate and back up plans and on the fly plans are needed continually. That in itself, was interesting, but it was a blow after blow as the enemy outsmarted them and continued to overpower them. While Avry continually found answers and freed prisoners, Prince Rhyn was continually secretive and manipulating making him suspect as the “good guy”. You would think with all the adventures Avery and Kerrick undertake (mostly separately) that it would keep the reader’s attention, but it took me days to finish this one and I skimmed the continual ambushes and repeated talks on how to overcome the new plague. Talk, talk, talk, battle strategy, speculation about enemies plans, more speculation about things to heal, death lily hypotheses, - it just got a little boring. Someone just needs to win this “war” and get it over with.

I hated that Tohon was in Avry’s head and has a connection to her. Just when did that happen? It is never cleared up and why isn’t Kerrick’s connection stronger since they are in love? It is just rather creepy and the only reason for their mental conversations were used to fill in the blanks. She ended up having more time with Tohon than Kerrick, which I, personally, hated. Kerrick's powers are a mystery the whole book, others get powers that are very timely and, is it just me, or are there way too many enemies to keep track of?

I would bet that guys would like this story with the cannibals, the bloody fights and the gruesome plague symptoms. It is a dark, dangerous and gritty tale of war and backstabbing that gives brief glimpses of love and goodness, but overall is about greed, treachery and power.

Having read all of The Study Series and The Glass Series, you could say I was a steady, if not rabid, fan of Maria Snyder’s work. I find it very similar to Kristen Cashore’s Fire Series, especially in relation to the portrayal of strong women who put careers in front of love and seem to condemn any religious restraints or morality that would prevent a girl from achieving what she wants. These stories have some really fun characters and devoted romantic interests.

The ending was sweet and quick and quickly dispels the darkness that came before it. While it is not my favorite book in the trilogy or even my favorite trilogy by Snyder, it was still well written and full of fun characters and exciting action.

There is a lot of implied sex between Kerrick and Avry but very little profanity – (damn)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good - but I expected more 6. Januar 2014
Von C. Glover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have been a longtime fan of Maria V. Snyder and loved her Poison Study series. I was also enjoying this series, although not quite to the same extent, until it came to this book. Maria's writting style hasn't changed, I found this book to be too focused on the battles and military logisitics on far too many fronts rather than on the personal relationships that made her a "must read" author for me. There is still romance (actually, I would say there is more steamy scenes in this book than in most others), but the relationships behind those scenes never really develop further than they did in previous books. Except perhaps for Flea's story, but there too I would have love a chance to get in his head more as he struggled with his new "role". The novel appears to be rushed, and the ending far too quick after the long military set up that occurs throughout the book. Even things like Kerrick's response to the Skeleton Kings dealings with Avry are brushed over - when I would think Kerrick would have had a stronger reaction (I did, and I'm just the reader!).

If you have been reading this series (and you would need to in order to understand most of the plot in this book), then I suggest you read it to put a few issues to bed. But I wouldn't count on reading it more than once.
