Another fantastic entry!
Let me just say, wow!
Okay, as I've come to expect, Robin Miles gives a fantastic performance with an awesome assortment of voices, including some really convincing male voices, almost perfect tempo, and nearly perfect vocal inflections. I really couldn't ask for anything better.
One of the things I really love about Brandon Barr's writing is we completely skip the oh-so-common (and annoying) recap of the previous book or a "story so far" note.
These books are not meant to be read as standalones, as they are a single contiguous story, in the vein of "Lord of the Rings" or "A Song of Ice and Fire."
You have been warned. Don't pick up in the middle of the series. Start at the beginning.
Now, another thing that I absolutely love about this series is Brandon Barr is one of those rare writers whose work only gets better!
The prequel (Ella Dethroned), available exclusively from AudFans, last time I checked, started strong and only got better.
Rise of the Seer is so good that it's hard to believe it was Brandon's first published novel.
The Bridge Beyond Her World took that fantastic base and built in numerous additional layers to turn what started out as two separate stories and tied everything into a grand, sweeping epic that I still have trouble believing really fits into the length of these books.
And this book took that amazing creation and took it to the next level. We're now seeing how things are going to fully tie in together, what the ultimate conflict really is, and how things might eventually come together.
If I were to have any complaints, I suppose it would be length (as epic fantasy goes they are rather short), the author's abundant use of character names when I pronoun would suffice, and the fact that what we're really looking at is two separate stories that will eventually come together somewhere near the epic conclusion (similar to the way Daenerys is competely separate from the rest of the stories in "A Song of Ice and Fire").
Apart from those, this book (like the previous two) is simply amazing. The characters are continuing to build, their arcs are expanding, the plot gets deeper and more complex. And I'm loving the way things look to be tying together.
I'm very pleased to report that (at least in my eyes) Melluscia has redeemed herself and is back to being a wonderful character that I love.
If you haven't read any of this series, then get on it! Pick up Rise of the Seer and dig in! My money says this will be the best series you read this year!
Different and well worth it
The cat is out of the bag when Meluscia is forced to tell Preseme of her actions with Mica, which earns her a black eye from Preseme. Later, Preseme becomes the bigger person and forgives her and also saves Meluscia's life.
Aven comes face to face with the monster in Winter's visions when he is taken by mercenaries, who have imprisoned Kiehueth on their ship. However, all does not go as the mercenaries plan.
Savarah has a change of heart and now believes her destiny is to travel to Praelothia to kill Isolaug. While Ruiek still remains in the shadows until his plan goes awry and he is forced to flee.
This series has been fast moving from the start; a mix of fantasy and sci-fi. Brandon Bar has a very distinctive way of writing and I was sad to learn of his passing as I believe a great talent has been lost.
