Of the three books in the Faerie Path series, I felt this one was the best. There was much more of a fantasy aspect to it than the other two had. Lots of strange creatures, a war, and some death. I also liked that the book allowed young women to be strong and powerful and not helpless.

You must read the first two books to understand what is happening in the third, and although this was the best of the three, the other two are worth reading if only to get to the third installment.

Rescuing the Queen was easy, now Tania has to save the entire faerie realm. Now they must rescue King Oberon if there is to be any hope of winning the war. He is bound in an amber prison surrounded by bars of Isenmort, which will make his release very difficult, if only they knew where to find him. Tania, Edric and Tania’s two sister Cordelia and Zara set off on a quest to Ynis Maw, the end of the faerie world. They hope to find King Oberon, release him from his prison and join his power with Qu...more

I didn't really like this as much as the other Faerie Path books, but I think perhaps it is because I'm getting tired of them. You can only drag something out for so long. Yes, it was good. Sure, it could be exciting in parts. But even though the characters were the same as in the other books, I got tired of them, even annoyed. Tania seemed really blond most of the time. The scenes with her and Edric made me want to cry from annoyance. It was fairly predictable. The language of Tania's sisters s...more

Finally finding her mother, the Queen, in the mortal world (The Lost Queen, book 2 of The Faerie Path), Princess Tania, her sisters and boyfriend Edric returned to the Faerie Realm to discover that their father, King Oberon had been taken prisoner. Locked away in an amber sphere wrapped with isenmort (metal bands) and then exiled to Ynis Maw (a tiny, inhospitable, prison island) King Oberon was waiting - for his daughters and the fate of the entire Faerie Realm.

Well, that was strange. Let me tell you something here. Two seconds ago, I found out the author of this book is a guy, which (believe me) when you read it you would have never guessed. I can see why he kind of hid that. Probably a weirdo, I'm not sure. Kind of secretive, though he does appear to have a blog.

Anyway, back to the topic. I was reading Princess on the Brink when I was reading this, so it was hard to get into the very slow storyline. You have to be patient with this book because it's...more

This book wasn't quite as good as the other two. It wasn't bad though and I did read the entire thing (it's hard to get me not to finish a book). It continues to follow Tania and her six faerie sisters, daughters of King Oberon and Queen Titania as they battle to save Faerie from outside evil influences-in this case the evil King Lyonesse and his undead minions (he escaped imprisonment by Oberon only to turn tables and imprison Oberon in a place that Oberon sends his worst prisoners). I liked th...more

I love this series so much. This author has a way of putting you right there in thrust if everything that's going on.I Just admires strength and courage. This series has it all love, suspense and accountability and through. I am looking forward to reading the fourth series.

Once again, Frewin Jones takes you on a mystical, suspenseful ride into the land of Faerie in her third book of THE FAERIE PATH series.

Returning to Faerie with her sisters and long-lost mother, Tania is shocked to find that the Sorcerer King has caused her beloved home to become a rotting and dead mess. The princesses realize that the only way they can beat him is to free their father, Oberon, from the Amber Prison.

And so they embark on the...more

tbis is certainly much better than book 2. there are more adventure and excitement.

what I like is the various faeries folks that we met along the way.

only thing I wish was there are more sparkles between Tania and Erdric. As it is, it doesn't feel like they are girlfriend and boyfriend

This book is the third in the trilogy of The Faerie Path. Faeries are one of my favourite species, along with elves that is, and so I dove right into this book that promised to be full of fun, adventure and a touch of romance. On top of all that, this book is set in the realm of faeries so the adventure is bound to stay fun right? Wrong.

The realm is under attack by the forces of the Sorcerer King. King Oberon is missing. One of his seven daughters is supposedly a traitor and someone's death has...more

I loved it! It was so good.
I imagined when they were facing the sorceror. I imagined music going on and her diging her nails into the palm of her hand while a tears were making it's way down her face through all the grime from battle. As her sisters fell to the ground I imagined all the fear and dispare weighing down along with the loss of Zara. She could the warmth of the tears as they ran down her cheeks and blurred her vision. And I could see it as her sword rang against his and Rathina ran...more

I could not put this third book in the Faerie Path series down! While I really liked the first book as we were introduced to Tania and her past, and the second book was okay as it continued to set up the story that led us to the showdown with the Sorcerer King, this third book was absolutely fabulous as we read about the trials the seven princesses endured to get to the final battle with the evil king. I was utterly entraced from beginning to end.

I think Mr. Jones could have wrapped up the serie...more

I love this book its so sad and so happy it has emotions that all intwine togeather. It has things that I love and stuff that im realy interested in. I was so sad when Zara was killed by Drake that I started to cry. I was so suprised when Rethena was the one how killed Drake. Its like all her love for him was draned away after he killed Zara that she wa able to kill him. How could the Sorcerer King distroy Farie and imprison King Orbon in an amber prison. How could Rethena ever be able to have s...more

The story seems promising so far...
But for the first 20% of the book all the main character seemed to do was dismiss the reality to a dream in a really, really annoying way.
The way it's written makes the main character entirely annoying, more so than any other protagonist.
the words seemed fumbled on and sometimes like they are placed in the text as fillers.
I still seem to be reading, I'm curious as to how it will turn out and if the character will grow some sense. The other books have good rati...more

This one was more fun than the second one in the series. More action that was actually *action* and not just thrown in for the sake of being there. More showing instead of telling as well. The plot was more complex and interesting, more in line with older readers than grade school or middle school readers. It made me want to rad the next book in the series, which the previous book did not. If I hadn't owned this book I might not have bothered to get it after the 2nd book, but now I am considerin...more

Much like it's predecessor, The Sorcerer King picks up where Lost Queen ended. It's hard to pinpoint why, but I liked this one less than the previous two. That's not at all to say that I didn't enjoy it or that it's bad; it's just a less favorite for me. It could be because this one is slightly darker, focusing on fighting a 'bad guy', whereas the first two are really more focused on finding something (or someone) good. It's still a tale of self discovery with a hint of romance- ultimately, this...more

Ok I have tried and tried, and tried with this book series but I can’t take it anymore! How can something with such a good story line be so boring to read? The first book in this series was ok but I thought it could build up so I gave the second a go............that was a mistake but I gave it one more chance with this one and now I am giving up! I can’t stand the writing style I found myself skimming and skipping paragraphs on pages............ So here is where it ends for me and “the faerie pa...more

This was a pretty good book in terms of the plot-line and characters. Almost every character in the book was crucial to the plot, and they were all dynamic and very interesting to read about!!! The story line was also fast-paced and kept me interested. There were also a few twists that helped keep it lively. The Sorcerer King was the perfect mix of teenage angst, fantasy, romance and adventure. I absolutely loved the ending to this wonderful trilogy, and I can't wait to read more by the author!

Series just keeps getting better and better!!!
Virginia
This was a good adventure (less about the people and their relationships); i esp liked the prep for battle scene, and the battle was well done. It did have a strong LOTR feeling (land, sequence of events, some characters...):S The place names bug me (Prydein is probably supposed to be an homage but it feels like stealing to me, and others seem awkward), and i know this is not the author's fault, but the covers annoy me as they aren't representative of the story at all:(
Sarah Lu
Wonderful amount of action and adventure in this volume. The trek around the world of Faerie was a real treat, as we can see more of Tania's new world. Superb descriptions, especially during the fight scenes, with the one exception of the final face off with the Sorcerer King. The events seemed a bit murky and difficult to realize. The death of a certain character actually caught me off guard, so kudos for that surprise. Definitely one of my favourites of the series.
Sandra Pulliam
I was not very impressed with this book. It felt very drawn out and I could not get wrapped up in it until the last few chapters. I thought the death of Zara was unnecessary and the war scenes at the end were just to ridiculous. I have liked the others in this series but this one just kept going and going and I even closed the book and went to sleep with only one chapter left. Hopefully the next book will be more exciting and more of a page turner.

The third installment in The Faerie Path series. Tania has returned her mother, the Queen Titania, to Faerie, but the Sorcerer King of Lyonesse has captured her father, King Oberon, and imprisoned him on the island of Ynis Maw. Tania and her sisters must rescue their father and raise an army to defeat the evil Sorcerer King, but at what cost? Fans of this series will not be disappointed in this book and will look forward to the next one.
Lea
The third book in the Faerie Path series, The Seventh Daughter (originally called The Sorcerer King in hardcover) takes place back in the Faerie Realm, where the evil Sorcerer King has imprisoned King Oberon and threatens to destroy Faerie forever. Tania, with the help of Edric and her sisters, must find a way to free her father and vanquish the evil Sorcerer King. This book picks up right where book 2 leaves off, so you'll want to read both.
Jen
Despite the cover, this series is an imaginative telling of two worlds. Through the story we face danger, friendship, love, loss, and heroism. The writing is simple and the story not complex. However, I was entertained enough to keep reading and find out the fate of the characters. The ending was sweet and actually satisfying, though there are a few things unresolved if the author wanted to add more.
