Voice of the Gods (Age of the Five #3)
Unable to avoid being drawn into the terrible conflict, Auraya, now protector of the Siyee, fears she will be unable to meet the conditions of the all-powerful gods she once served. And an offer from a mysterious woman may be impossible for Auraya to refuse, but, if revealed, would brand her an enemy of the gods. Now, the immortal Wilds will not be deterred in their quest...more
Apa kamu akan mengabaikan tumpukan buku-buku itu?
Cuma melihat-lihat dan sekedar lewat saja?
Atau kamu akan kalap dan mengacak-ngacak tumpukan buku itu demi mendapat buku yang kamu inginkan?
Dan saya melakukan pilihan ketiga
Saya mendapatkan ketiga buku ini dengan harga yang cukup murah, yaitu 75000 untuk tiga buah buku....more
If there's one thing I can say about AoF, its damningly original, easy to sink into and don't let up until the last page of the trilogy. I have personally never read any other of Trudi work but that's is about to change.
I'm very surprise at how...more

I'm just so impressed with the whole storyline; how different people's stories overlap and intertwine to combine into this really rich and complex narrative. Most of the characters were really well fleshed out and believable. Some of the points of view are more interesting than others (personally I always enjoyed the bits with...more
This book was the last of the 'Age of 5' trilogy and all of the loose ends were skilfully dealt with. However, I had guessed the main twist regarding the 'Gods' well before the end of the book - I will not spoil this aspect for any other readers. This did not detract my enjoyment of the book, which I found to be the usual page...more
Wrap up: Secrets are revealed and the climax is reached. Although one of the big secrets has been obvious since the first book, the final reveal of the past had some interesting detail and explains why the Circle is of 5 gods.
Auraya: she confronts some hard truths (about time)
Build up: while some elements have been slowly building to the conclusion there are elements of the final confron...more
wow, cerita yang menakjubkan untuk saya. saya suka. apalagi sama Auraya, tokoh utamanya hehe.
jadi di buku ke tiga ini rahasia para dewa terbongkar, dan yaa, para dewa pun terbunuh oleh ke enam manusia abadi ituu.

I'd have to say that I enjoyed the 'Magician's Guild' trilogy a bit...more
One thing is for sure though, that religion does not teach us to do evil. The world has made us a great creature, truly one of a kind, one who shows empathy even towards a bird that has just been crushed. Why can't we then, extend that empathy to our fel...more
Fortunately, the autor'd stunned me. The plot's interesting, I couldn't stop reading the book. Auraya, who's not the White anymore, must fight with her deelings toward Mirar/Leiard, with love to Siyee, to gods and finally... with herself. At the same time, Emerald's looking for a powerful atrefact, which holds secrets about gods and ways to k...more
Sbnrnya akan lebih bgs lagi jika pengarang memberikan epilog yg lbh panjang & detil utk memuaskan keingintahuan para pembaca akan nasib para tokoh utama selanjutnya dan bagaimana reaksi dunia (terutama para Circlian) saat dihadapkan pada kenyataan yg mengejutkan, apakah mereka memer...more
The book is impossible to leave, especially when the final notes of the story are being played.
The characters acquire more and more interesting faces, remaining though consistent with their personality. They grow so much on you that it is hard to think they will cease to exist once the book is over.
I must confess that I would have expected some more details on th...more
I thought the epilogue was a little cheesy, though!
I have really enjoyed this series, more than I thought I would originally - it feels much better reading than the books about Sonea, and I felt the characters were a lot more likeable / believeable. And I thought the Siyee were lovely!
Still really enjoyed it, and a great conclusion with some interesting moral dilemma's which deserve thinking about long after you have put the book down.
