The second and third installments in Huff's Quarter series take place nearly twenty years after Sing the Four Quarters and expands our view of that world. Fifth Quarter begins with a pair of sibling assassins in the army of the Havakeen Empire. When they're sent to take out a target, they walk into a situation that takes them away from everything they've known and changes their lives forever, a story that doesn't really find a resolution until the end of No Quarter. I've decided that Tanya Huff ...more

There are only four books in written in this wold. I really liked them and have always wished there were more books. This is a nice conclusion to the original trilogy and book 4 always feels tacked on and more of a stand alone book.

After returning her brother Bannon's soul to his body, Vree grabs Gyhard's escaping soul and brings him into her body. Now she must discover a way to find him a usable body that doesn't involves someone dying. So a journey to Shkoder is undertaken with the hope of finding a bard who can help them.

I think this was the best of the series so far. I really liked how Vree and Gyhard's meshed as one and yet maintained their individuality while waiting to be separated. I liked Magda and Gerek and hope

The walking dead are at it again and the Vree/Gyhard have teamed up with the Bard to put the end of their walking. Great read and off to the next book of the series, THE QUARTERED SEAS!

Haunting resolution of the trilogy started with 'The Four Quarters'.
(The fourth book in the series is a not-quite-sequel.)

I love this series so much. You have to have read the second book to understand this one but assassins, bards, necromancers need I say more.

I really enjoy these books. I like how the stories intertwine, and characters from one stream join with characters from another. I also really love the world that Huff has created.

This third book in Huff's Quarters series is an improvement on the previous angst-laden "Fifth Quarter", but still wasn't as much fun as the first in the series, "Sing the Four Quarters". "No Quarter" brings back the cast from the second book (Vree, Bannon, Gyhard, Karlene), and adds Magda & Gerek, the children of Anice who starred in the first book. It has a bit more humor than the second book, though is still a bit too full of wounded psyches for my taste.

No Quarter pulls the first two books together and wraps up the Bannon and Vree drama. It's not bad - a quick read, and a more nuanced look at Shkoder (which is, incidentally, the single worst fantasy place name that I think I've ever encountered.) It's nice to get some closure, although I still don't really buy the central romance.

I liked this better than Fifth Quarter (which I liked well enough but not as much as Fourth Quarter). And I liked this one better because there is more action and a better understanding of how the fifth kigh works. I just really like the whole concept of the ability to Sing the elements.

Light fantasy, entertaining, easy to read, but not insulting the reader's intelligence.
