Legacy of Kings: Magister Trilogy, Book 3 | [C. S. Friedman]

Legacy of Kings: Magister Trilogy, Book 3

The young peasant woman Kamala has proven strong and determined enough to claim the most powerful Magister sorcery for herself-but now the Magisters hunt her for killing one of their own. Her only hope of survival lies in the northern Protectorates, where spells are warped by a curse called the Wrath that even the Magisters fear. Originally intended to protect the lands of men from creatures known only as souleaters, the Wrath appears to be weakening-and the threat of this ancient enemy is once more falling across the land.

    "Dark and Enigmatic ... Yet Powerful and Willful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Legacy of Kings to be better than the print version?

    I have listened to and read this series. Both are quite excellent. A female narrator who enabled the voices of the male characters quite brilliantly in the audio version.


    What other book might you compare Legacy of Kings to and why?

    I have no comparison for this story line and have read and listened to uncountable tales. This is fairly unique to what I have read in the fantasy line. Though I do not enjoy generally such dark tales this one caught my attention because of the uniqueness of the story line.


    What does Elisabeth Rodgers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A fantastic voice. The characters were easily identified, male and female alike. The best rendition I have heard of a females take on male voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending of the third book. Do not want to spoil it .. but the series is worth reading and or listening to simply to see change affected.


    Any additional comments?

    Can good come of evil or rather that which is evil turn good? My thoughts on these books go deeper than most might .. indeed my thoughts on most books ... then there is always the appearance of good in that which is evil .. it is what made these books interesting.

    "Nothing compelling here."

    This review is of the entire trilogy:

    After an interesting beginning, I was so hoping that there would be something about the main character that would make her interesting. Unfortunately that never happened. I was so disappointed. She was quite dull and shallow.

    The author was too predictable. One of the problems I had was with how she would always kill off potential mates of the main character. Some of them started of quite interesting and likable. Yet you knew there were going to die like red shirted crewmen on Star Trek.

    Most male characters were cookie cutter as well. They were mostly self centered, shallow, and misogynistic. Very few were worthy and noble.

    It is sad. There were a lot of missed opportunities with this series.

    The narrator was not very good either. She is pretty flat and emotionless. She did not help the story at all.

    Overall, I recommend passing on this series. There is nothing redeemable.

    "Disappointed - fantasy "chick flick""
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The reader was fine - the books just weren't that good. I'm usually receptive to feminist issues, but they were overplayed and the books lacked enough else to support their weight.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader was fine. However, given the overplaying of feminist issues in the books overall, the choice of a femal narrator only exacerbated the problem.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I had stuck with the author's prior books...
