How do you go about killing yourself when you are an immortal? Is it even possible? Jennifer Fallon explores this tantalizing puzzle in The Gods of Amyrantha, the second in her Tide Lords series.

The Tide is turning and the Tide Lords’ powers are returning with it. Cayal, the Immortal Prince, hero of legend, was thought to be only a fictional character.

A typical "bridge" book, but it wasn't bad. And I say to anyone who's at started this series to at least read til the end of Gods of Amyrantha because there is one HELL of a plot twist at the end...
Liviu
Superb sequel; witty, funny, twists and turns, revelations.

As the Tide increases in power the Immortals are back to scheming for power, with the usual suspects from Jaxyn, Dialla to Sirolee, Tryan and Elissa positioning themselves for the richest spoils around.

Even the righteous Brynden may be ready to forgive Kinta and get an Empire, since an ascetic cult wears thin after a while too, while Lukys has his "hands" in so many plots that it's not clear if even his stated goal is actually true..

The following passage found in the book is what truly convinced me Jennifer Fallon is one of my favourite Fantasy Authors.

Jennifer Fallon: "The fun of self-delusion, that's what faith is all about... believing in something so profoundly you'd devote your entire life to it without any proof that it actually exists. Worse than that, it's believing without the need for proof. It's believing, even when confronted with definitive proof that you're wrong. A truly effective religion doesn't need gods

I loved it, flew thru it ... And it stops with everything up in the air! And now I find my local library doesn't have the next book in the series. NOOOO!

Not a bad followup to The Immortal Prince per say... but several things prevented me from really getting into this book. In fact, had it not been for the book challenge, I would have given it up halfway and put back on my TBR.

Take the characters for instance, loving the characters I read about contributes a lot to my liking of a book. While I did empathize with Cayal in The Immortal Prince I definitely did not in this book. I'm sure that's what Jennifer Fallon intended, but this actually took of

Meine Meinung:
Auf ein Wiedersehen mit Arkady und Cayal habe ich mich mehr als nur gefreut. Band 1 endet mit einem Cliffhanger, der den Leser zwar nicht völlig frustriert zurücklässt, aber eben doch neugierig macht auf einen zweiten Band. Diese Fortsetzung beginnt dann aber leider nicht mehr so stark wie der Auftakt. Es werden weitere Charaktere eingeführt, wobei es dem Leser trotzdem gut gelingt den Überblick zu behalten. Leider treffen die beiden Protagonisten erst sehr spät im Handlungsverlauf

Full review originally at Fantasy Book Critic

ANALYSIS: The novel starts off within a couple of weeks of time from "The Immortal Prince" and picks up exactly where that one ended. The various characters are shown to be in different places due to the events occurring in the previous book. Cayal is in Torlenia awaiting Arkady & Stellan who are traveling there for political reasons.

Declan Hawkes is doing spy-work & secret assignments to find out the current identities of the hidden Tide Lo

It has been a thousand years since the last High Tide and humanity has forgotten the threat posed by the Tide Lords...

This is an EXCELLENT sequel to followup the Immortal Prince.

The world view has definitely expanded in this book! Though we still have a few back stories, this book gives a much better view of Amyrantha as an actual world and it's histories.

The story is still pretty much following Cayal as he looks for ways to end his life, but the Immortal Prince had a more minor role this

Even better than the first, and if you enjoyed the first (I most definitly positively absolutely did), you'll know what I mean, I didn't think that was possible.

Tides Jennifer! You did it again =)lol...


She takes us into a thrilling and absorbing read, and true to the title of the book, it was about The Gods of Amyrantha.

Without revealing too much, I will start by saying that at the end of The Immortal Prince, we know that there are 9 Tide Lords (powerful immortals that can influence the Tide) C

This series has got me hooked. I am on the way to library to grab the next one. I can't say it's the writing because it's not that strong but the characters and plot twist are a rush. I am addicted.

The Tide Lords are such a funky concept. They are humans who come into power over the elements in cycles referred to as the 'The Tide'. They are immortal but The Tides are hundreds of years apart. They never know when it's coming or how long it will stay. When The Tide is out, they live on the downlo

Like the first book in the series, which I’d actually written up a review for but later decided not to post, I enjoyed the audiobook quite a lot. Narrator John Telfer does a really great job making the characters distinct and imbuing their lines with a lot of personality.

This series isn’t one I would have ever picked up on my own, but I’ve really been enjoying it. The world building is really cool. There are these immortals (Tide Lords) who have the ability to manipulate the tide, which is magic

A more action packed novel than The Immortal Prince, the first in this series, this book takes us into the swiftly developing machinations of the Tide Lords and the attempts of the Cabal to stop them.

I thought this book was better than The Immortal Prince which bodes well for the series as a whole. To begin with the Crasii were better realized and less distracting than in the first book and they make up some of the more interesting characters. There's much more action as well and Fallon has beg

This is the second book in the Tide Lords series, and it has jacked up the danger, adventure and mystery 3x. By the end of the book, every character finds himself either in a situation where they might never get out and puts them in extreme danger, or gets some information that changes their entire perception of themselves and their place in their world. A lot of questions from the last book are answered, but a ton more are revealed in the last couple chapters...some that were hinted at and the ...more

Ok.. so I liked and disliked this book.

I Liked it because it kept me reading and i was wanting more the whole time. (always good for a book) The catactors are intriging and in this book we got to know some of them better.

I disliked it because of the ending, yes, yes I know I will have a phew people who disagree,but I have reasons. Well I dislike it because we have this build up the whole and then it just suddenly goes in to all these unfinished ends and twists and things now that is always good

The writing's not bad, but it's not remarkable either. For some reason it's incredibly addictive, though. It's like a soap opera, but with no actual sex scenes (there was one in the last book, though). Perhaps it's how she keeps up that sexual tension so you end up mentally shouting at the characters to go ahead and do it, already, but they never do. I don't know why I like it. I have predicted every single plot point in the entire book. There are no surprises. But I do like it. Enough that I'm ...more

I'm so disappointed. I wasn't very impressed with the first book, but after reading reviews for the second, I was convinced to give it a go. Up until the last 20 pages or so, the book was predictable and without any real conflict. I wouldn't say the author was a bad writer, but the story feels very weak to me. Will I buy the next ebook? Probably because I have a hard time letting go of a story without finishing it. This series, so far, reminds me of another series that was written by Elizabeth H ...more

I'm not sure if the author is really bad at foreshadowing plot twists, or she just thinks so *very* much like me that she always does exactly what I think would be cool. Whatever it is, I've managed to correctly guess ALL her big surprises way ahead of the big reveal...and though you'd think this would make it lose stars, I'm still giving her the full five because reading it was just a pleasurable thing. And must admit I liked having the plot twists turn out the way they "should". :D I love Caya ...more

So i had my doubts after the first book of this series, and i think i even said it just felt like a lot of build up. Well, while this one still has build up it also has a lot of pay off. The characters feel more fleshed out, the history of the tide lords is more interesting and i think this comes from the fact that we have 3-4 telling of the past rather than just Cayal. And a pretty big twist at the end that i missed until it hit me in the face is always a good thing, strait on to the next book.

I enjoyed the conflict of the different characters. I really related to the Duchess, and am hanging on the edge waiting to see what happened to her. The book had a big soap opera feeling to it. Complications and intrigue moved through the plot. Really enjoyed this one.

Was totally thrilled with the ending, and could have guessed it coming. It totally made sense. Really looking forward to the third book in the series that is due out in a month. Ticking off the days. Bring it on! Ready to see what

It is astounding that basically nothing has happened in ~600 pages other than immortals tripping over themselves to line up in order to wax lyrical to Arkady about their past exploits. For someone touted as an educated woman, Arkady is surprisingly narrow-minded and has quickly turned into a damsel in distress. Speeding up the plot a bit would do no harm to the pacing of The Gods of Amyrantha. I understand that the Tide Lords have waited nearly a thousand years for the turning of the tide. I don ...more

Despite enjoying the first novel in the Tide Lords series, I abandoned this one about 1/4 of the way through.

As with the first novel, The Gods of Amyrantha skips around from character to character and so at times the plot moved very slowly. This criticism was countered by the fascinating world building in the first novel, but by the second novel the sense of discovery wore off.

I have no complaints about the characters or the tone of the writing. I simply ended up putting this book down because t

This book kept me hooked from the beginning, I was really looking forward to starting it when I finished the first book (Imortal Prince). The politics and secrets are all so well written, and the author knows how to work so many view points in without missing anything or getting repetitive. At the end of the book is a cliffhanger that really sets you up for the next book, each character is hanging by a thread and I cannot wait to read on.

I thought this was a good continuation of the series. The plot lines expand, you get to see more of the world, and more Immortals join the story. And, there was a twist towards the end of the book that I did not see coming, although looking back it should have been something I could have figured out. Anyway, that alone was enough to send me diving into the next book as soon as I put this one down.
