Final rating 455 starsAnd done It was amazing This review will be spoiler less for non series readers up to the point I markNo uotes at the start because I highlighted so many sentences I forgot which one was the one I wanted to put So no uotes this time For those unfamiliar with the series I highly recommend it This is 4th and at the same time 6th book in order because of the two book in between that had a lot of short stories that were in fact useful and necessary to read This series has everything Literally Did I tell you that this fantasy throws all standard human social norms and behaviors out of window Because it does just that Reversed gender roles Checkueens in charge CheckDragonoid shapeshifters CheckUniue races and none of them are entirely human CheckLGBT Check Everyone is bisexualPolyamory A standard in Raksuran CourtA race that can choose their gender before maturity CheckAwesomeness Check Check Check This series is among my absolute favorites from the book I The Cloud Roads had everything that I hadn't known I needed and I loved it for it But I made a mistake I should have waited for the last book The Harbors of the Sun to come out first Why Because it is the only book with the cliffhanger so far If you hate cliffhangers my advice is to wait because this is a big one I'm in agony called waitingI had a bit of an issue with pacing but it was understandable because this time we have an actual arc And the first book in this arc gave us enough information of new characters and some of their culture and customs Did i mention amount of fluff it had Tons of it Tons of fluff and I was surprised And also other POVs than Moon's The angst part hit near the end and it was like thiiiiiiiiiis i have been waiting for thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis because Martha Wells knows how to angst From this point on starts the section for Raksura fans so if you are not a reader of this awesome series don't read bellow but go and get the first book ► STORY CHARACTERS I will be merging Story and Characters sections because they are already well established through the previous books and there is no I can add well except for the new characters that appear such as Kalam what a cutie and Rorra a badass sealing cutie But on that a bit later Some very slight spoilers but nothing too seriousThere is actually no point in describing the plot of the story The synopsis does a great job of it There were twists in the story I certainly hadn't expected and I was amused and saddened by them I honestly can't wait to find out what happens in the seuelThere is a lot of fluff between Chime and Moon in a way even than previous books and I just loved that There was also a lot of scenes between Jade and Moon but I believe Chime and Moon took the spotlight this time It's such a blessing that polyamory here is real and that we have a perfect triangle of fluff and cuteness Honestly There were also POVs within Opal Night court members and Ember's as well Ember is so nice wonderful and even though he was so nervous he figured out someone else needed help to escape so he provided I am proud to see that because Ember is another wonderful character in this seriesThen there is Shade who is traumatized a lot since the happenings in third book but still has strength and will to go on in a dangerous territoryI was wondering when Moon was going to lose it to be honest Through the first books he was always on edge not trusting anyone but now that he finally realized that he found his home and that no one will abandon him any he is afraid of dying himself or Jade dying or both of them dying because it would mean leaving their clutch orphans just like he was He was so overwhelmed with it that he wanted to stay home and take care of them But then it changed and he went with Jade and other Raksura and groundlings on an expedition trying to prevent the vision they all had shared Don't get me wrong as much as Moon is stable now when it comes to Fell he can and he will fight but there is always that underlying fear that Fell will capture him and he himself knows what Fell have in store when it comes to Consorts like fearChime still feels useless but others are trying to tell him otherwise also can you tell that I love him so damn much he is adorable And he is still not confident in his flying poor guyDelin is back and he probably just kidnapped himself on this expedition I shouldn't have expected it otherwiseDrift crying over the fact that River is going with Moon and company to once again prove that he is useful and worthy of going with them because he lost his place in the courtI was also so happy with the fact that Stone did not trust anyone on the Kish expedition to the measure he didn't want to show his other form and instead played a weak old man that later turned into giant but you know it was all for the shock effectMoon ended up with 8 children How can he resist their cuteness The short answer is he can'tMoon fake fainting Oh he was successful I can't even There were so many precious parts like for examplepredators come on board raksuran ueen literally sends the message you boarded the wrong ship you little shits and they collectively nope and fly away And many parts like that oneFrom the new characters I will talk the most about Kalam and Rorra Because they left the biggest impression on me Of course the whole crew was interesting but I have no time nor will to write about them all So here we goAlso Rorra is amazing notmermaid sealing who lost her fins and now she decided to stay aboard and help her newfound family She is also just adorable and has an aura of irritating races with good scents but she can't help it Stone is immune though WinksKalam is adorable He comes from a species Janderan that does not chose gender until they reach maturity He chose to be male and is maybe a bit too sheltered by his father Callumkal and is generally just inexperienced sometimes nervous and adorkable he entered sealing drug bar by accident instead of a trading station and Stone and Moon had to rescue him I definitely didn't expect him to have a crush on view spoiler Moon and that he even kissed him hide

characters Í eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Martha Wells

T ancestors the Forerunners and the last sealed Forerunner city they encountered was a prison The Edge Kindle for an unstoppable evilPrior to the groundlings’ arrival the Indigo Cloud court had been plagued by visions of a disaster that could destroy all the courts in the Reaches Now the court’s mentors believe the ancient city is connected to the foretold danger A small group of warriors including consort Moon an orphan new to the colony and the Raks. Hmm 35 Stars Video Review love the Books of Raksura series I love Moon and Jade and Chime basically all the characters I especially liked the introduced characters in this We haven't seen too many sealings so getting to know about them in this was great I really like learning about the other different species of people in this world generally and how their customs overlap and differ I love the explorations of these open ish relationships where Moon is romantically and physically involved with both Chime and Jade I like that Moon is the little spoon in almost every scene with Jade Even when the cuddling is in a non romantic familial situation Raksura are very touchy feely Raksura can be cuddling with their sibling one moment and then gutting a Fell in the next Awesome I have mixed feelings about how long this installment takes to get moving I appreciated that we got a lot of recap of who was who and how they were related to each other It's been years since I read the two collections of short storiesnovellas so it was awesome to be gently reintroduced to everything However it took much longer than necessary for things to get going Besides a one time hunting skirmish at the beginning the plot of this one is SLOW to pick up There is a lot of traveling which takes up the vast majority of this book I think this installment and the next one probably go together very well but this book doesn't have a whole lot of catharsis when you finish it There is so much build up with going to another ancient city with secrets to discover inside that I expected much from it Don't get me wrong there are a lot of things in motion that I'm excited to know about I'm pumped to see Shade and Lithe I really want to see their positions within the greater Raksuran culture explored further I want on what was discovered in the city which I'm sure we'll get but I thought some of the smaller plots would be completely wrapped up in this other than just knowing what was in the city I also thought the situation that we're in at the end of the book was so predictable because the foreshadowing was pretty heavy handed I won't spoil it for anyone but I'd be shocked if people don't know exactly whats coming from miles away All that said I still love this world these characters and this culture I'm here for anything Raksura and Martha Wells so I'll be reading The Harbors of the Sun soon hopefully

The Edge of WorldsUra’s idea of family and sister ueen Jade agree to go with the groundling expedition to investigate But the predatory Fell have found the city too and in the race to keep the danger contained the Raksura may be the ones who inadvertently release it The Edge of Worlds from celebrated fantasy author Martha Wells returns to the fascinating world of The Cloud Roads for the first book in a new series of strange lands uncanny beings dead cities and ancient dang. While this is book four in the series it picks up some years after the first trilogy and it forms a duology with the next book there's no conclusion in this oneThe Indigo Cloud Court has been peaceful for a long time but that peace is shattered when nearly the entire Court has a shared dream of a Fell attack Soon after a new flying boat arrives with strange groundlings and an old friend of the Raksura They bring news of a found ancient city of a type similar to the one that caused so much trouble in the previous book An expedition is mounted but like before the Fell are in the race as well with the prophetic dream indicating what's at stakeI love reading about the world of the Raksura It's interesting from the point of view of an ancient lived in world with many intelligent species coexisting in many different environments as well as the rigorous construction of the Raksura themselves The emotional journey inthis one isn't as compelling as in previous volumes Moon is so clearly grounded with his Court now doubly so now that he has relations with his birth Court There's of the half Fell half Raksura in this book which is interesting but not enough to satisfy It's clear there will be much in the next bookThere's also some issues around pacing with nearly a third of the book gone before the mission is embarked on and large parts of the book then end up feeling like a DD dungeon crawl with little emotional heft Lots of setup for an interesting finale though
