The first book in this series, the Interminables, was on the top of my best of 2016 list. The deeply flawed, nuanced, and grounded characters interacted in a very complex world. Orwin struck a good balance between explaining the magic so it is believable but not overexplaining until it felt pedestrian. The plot was unpredictable and moving but the heart of the book was in the pathos - these were characters who lived,

Really liked the world Orwin has created. It has that strange dream vibe where everything is nonsensical but somehow still works. Also, you gotta love the incredibly unique characters!

Let's get the basics out of the way first, shall we?  The Immortal Architects is the second in a series by Paige Orwin, the first of which was called The Interminables, and is an alt-world fantasy about wizards who destroy the world in order to defeat an evil immortal from the Middle East who is trying to destroy the world.  The main characters are Edmund Templeton and Istvan Czernin who,with help from a few others attempt to keep Shokat Anoushak al-Khalid, ancient Scythian warrior and magician, ...more

This follow-up to author Paige Orwin's The Interminables, features the same tremendous characters with a wild, inventive plot and takes us on another tremendous journey.

Edmund Templeton is a sorcerer. One of the best. He is also known as "The Time Thief" because of his magic ability to take time from one person and use it for himself. Edmund, along with a ghost from World War I, Istvan Czernin, are trying to find a 'norma

I really wish I would have read the first book in this series "The Interminables". Not because I didn't get a feel or understand what was going on, no, the author does a great job of explaining, but because it would have been nice to see where the story was and how it ended in book one.
This novel doesn't lack on great writing, epic world building, fantastical creatures, likable characters, and meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships. Matter of fact, it's been a long time since I've read

While in most respects a good read with interesting & unique characters, plot twists, action, intrigue, etc., it was difficult to fully appreciate this book without having read the first in the series. I hadn't realized when I started the book that it was a second. It is sometimes possible to pick up a series in the middle because you can get enough of the backstory to tide you over. The scope of this story is so vast and intricate, however, that hints given to fill in from the first don't help ...more

The first book had an ease about it that didn't quite carry over, the action got a bit convoluted, but I still liked it a lot.
New and good characters got added to the cast, and the characterisation and drive of the ones coming back got furthered and deepened. Maybe a bit much, mind - this book definitely went darker than the last one. Still, I'm definitely looking forward to the next books in the series.
