The hopelessness of the characters really grated on me. What can they do, as mere humans, when supernatural powers, for good, have turned bad? It was once again unnecessarily sensual. Violent.
I just don’t know if I’ll even read the others as they come out. This just depressed me.
a new world, a new adventure. I shall not be buying this series. To much unnecessary sexual innuendo. It just pervaded everything. I was really looking forward to this series too. Sigh…
Crown of Stars
Crown of Stars #7
concluding volume[volume 7] of the Crown of Stars series. I didn’t think it ended really satisfactorily. Hughe never gets his. Things just kind of petre out, with no long lasting happy ending. Kind of like real life. Never get a real chance to see Sanglant and Liath’s love in peacetime. It ends with Blessing[their child] as an older woman.
In the Ruins
Crown of Stars #6
85 / 3 stars
The Aoi return, and the human world is spent in just trying to survive the conflagration that accompanied the Aoi’s return. I am looking forward to the final book coming out next Februrary or so. I’ll read it, then in a year or two, reread the whole series at once. To long between books and I forget who is who. There are ALOT of characters, reminds me of Jordan, but not so straggly. More focused.
After reading the final book, I sold my hardcovers and never re-read the series.
Prince of Dogs
Crown of Stars #2
I really enjoyed this book. Well written, characters are fleshed out, the threads of people’s lives are starting to weave together a little more and the magic is starting to be explored in more detail.
