    WHY DID SHE DO THIS TO CHAOL?!?!!! I loved him in the first two books and loved them together. But now they basically are disgusted with eachother and I can't get over it cause I feel like it's a bad break up. It's hard for me to read because of the rift between them and I hate it. Absolutely hate it. She's making me hate Chaol and I hate it.
  • LOVE IT!!!

    Not so much a spoiler as a warning... You are not just buying one book. You will be on the hook for four. Like the teller of 1001 Arabian Nights this author is focused on the cliff hanger, blatantly manipulating the reader into coming back for the next episode. Each book ends prematurely and is followed by a trailer for the next. The first book is a delightful melange of every adventure story cliche ever written. Somehow it becomes more than the sum of it's parts and leads one to wanting more. The second is more complex and increases the reader's intrigue. Once effectively captured one has no choice but to follow the story to the end. The bad news is that the length of each episode is manipulated by the addition of expository interludes and redundant nightmares stretched past their effectiveness and the final chapters lack the punch that concludes a masterwork. Though the plot is slightly derivative it is well conceived and crafted and I would recommend this book to the adventure enthusiast. Unfortunately for me the excessive bloodshed is slightly numbing and there are very few erotic scenes to provide the requisite balance of sex and violence. Some sensual content is introduced toward the end in the name of a happy ending but overall the epic is overflowing with creativity. If the author has another more mature book in her after all this I would certainly read it.

    These are a remarkable set of books! I love the Twists and turns that are thrown at us! The character profiles are quite complete and involved. I feel I have seen the movie in my head. The description of each character and the scenes are wonderfully colorful. I am looking forward to the next Chapter! Thank you!
  • LOVE IT!!!
