ueen of Fire kindle ´ eBook Free ´ Anthony Ryan Í ❮PDF / Epub❯ ☆ ueen of Fire Author Anthony Ryan – Feedmarkformulate.co.uk In the thrilling conclusion to the “deftly and originally executed” Booklist New York Times bestselling trilogy Vaelin Al Sorna must help his ueen reclaim her Realm Ed Battle Lord of the Realm However his path is riddled with difficulties For the Volarian enemy has a new weapon on their side one that Vaelin must destroy if the Realm is to prevail a mysterious Ally with the ability to grant unnaturally long life to her servants And defeating one who cannot be killed is a nearly impossible feat especially when Vaelin’s blood song the mystical power which has made him the epic fighter he is has gone ominously silent   Executive Summary A somewhat enjoyable end to the series but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did the last two books 35 starsAudio book Much like the last 2 books I enjoy Steven Brand as a narrator save for the fact that he's so UIET Thankfully my audiobook app lets me increase the volume or it would be incredibly frustrating I wonder if the publishers listens to the book with noise canceling headphones only or something or if even that would be sufficientIf you've done the previous two in audio you should know what to expect Hopefully like me you have a way to increase the volume so you can enjoy Mr Brand's otherwise excellent narration Full Review After how much I enjoyed the last two it was almost going to be impossible for this book to live up to my expectationsSome of this is probably on me I read Blood Song and Tower Lord back to back It's been about a year since then and my memory on the details were fuzzy I should have reread I wish there was a wiki or something with plot points and character bios I could have used to refresh myselfI struggled at the start remembering many of the minor characters I think all books in a series and really all audio books in general should have a list of the important characters with maybe a 1 sentence reminder of who they are It would really help a lot There are just too many books to reread previous books every time a new one comes out even books I loved as much as the last twoBoth of those books grabbed me early on and never let go That never really happened here I was always happy to pick it back up but I wasn't making excuses to listen longer or counting down the time until I could get back to listening So unfortunately I can't the whole series 5 starsI also found myself wondering for much of the second half of the book if there would be enough time to resolve everything For the most part I think he does a good job of converging the different story lines but it reuired a fairly large info dump near the end to do soThat said I really love the world Mr Ryan has built and I'm especially fond of the characters It's always great to read about them and this book is no different Much like Tower Lord I think Frentis and Riva both sort of steal the show again However Vaelin's chapters are pretty interesting as well Lyrna's story was still enjoyable just not as much as the othersOverall this has been one of the best series I've found in the last few years I'd happily read another series set in this world especially if we can visit again with some of the charactersThis is definitely a series I'll revisit down the road on a reread Maybe reading all 3 back to back I won't struggle as much as the start and enjoy it the second timeEither way I'll be looking forward to checking out what Mr Ryan has in store for us next

ueen of FireEss task” After fighting back from the brink of death ueen Lyrna is determined to repel the invading Volarian army and regain the independence of the Unified Realm Except to accomplish her goals she must do than rally her loyal supporters She must align herself with forces she once found repugnant those who possess the strange and varied gifts of the Dark and take the war to her enemy’s doorstep Victory rests on the shoulders of Vaelin Al Sorna now nam I reviewed this book some time ago I simply found a typo and corrected itWhat can I say here The rating speaks for itself I don't know what happened here The first book in this series is probably one of the best fantasy works I've ever read Well crafted and even enthralling I had trouble putting it down I sat up late reading I've read it than once The second book was simply good I still rated it 5 stars though it wasn't as good as the firstNow we have the third For some reason Mr Ryan seems to have simply let the story run on in different directions with little control of what's actually there the view points bounce around from one to another with the story losing all direction at times plot strings flailing out in all directions with very little relation at times to the original plot lines Where I had trouble putting the first book down this one I had to make myself go back toand even finish On multiple occasions I simply wanted to put it down and move on to something elseVaelin our erstwhile protagonist vacillates in character from what he has been established to be but then never settles down to an actually new character I use the word erstwhile as he is now mostly just one of several points of view The Enemy or The Ally depending on where you are in the story was in the end of the first novel the center of Vaelin's uest so to speak That focus has gone by the wayside We do finally get back to it but oh the side roads diatribes wandering conversations speeches info dumps etcI am sorry I don't like to give reviews this negative especially on books by writers I know can be excellent story tellers Thus my statement I don't know what happened I tend to wonder if maybe the story lines were all just so important to Mr Ryan that he couldn't let anything be left out Maybe he just wanted the story to go to a certain place and found he had to bend things and drag them out to get there I have no idea how the book was edited Could it have been saved or if you don't feel it needs saving made better by a thorough editor Again I don't knowI know this is a subjective review and reflects my own reaction to and view of the book If you disagree and like or even love the book I'm happy for you I can not recommend it I'm sure one reason I am so disappointed in this novel is that I loved the first That book Blood Song is still one of the best beginnings of an epic fantasy I've ever read Happily this book does not ruin that one It does however in my humble opinion fail to fulfill the promise made thereWith a heavy heart I can not recommend this novel
