Olivia (vinjii) | 1055 comments Ok, started today. It has 9 Chapter Sets and will probably read 2 a day for 3 days then finish on the 4th. ALTHOUGH I have a lovely friend visiting from Thursday to Sunday, so maybe I'll be delayed...


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments I'll finish my Robin Hobb book then start this tomorrow. And Mistress of the Empire is still left....
So little time, so many good books!!!


Olivia (vinjii) | 1055 comments Yes, I'm halfway through Mistress, slowly chipping away!

Daniel | 1536 comments Just started today!


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments same with me. :)


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Starting this tonight 😀


Daniel | 1536 comments So just curious to hear what everyone likes/dislikes about this series?


Sandra  (sleo) | 179 comments I’m starting chapter IV and enjoying the hell out of it. Lysaer’s visit to Ath’s Hostel was pure delight.


Daniel | 1536 comments Yes I enjoyed that scene as well. Guessing that was critically important to future events.


Sandra  (sleo) | 179 comments In this series almost everything is critical to future events. That’s one of the things I like about the series.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Before I started reading this I have given myself the Scout's Promise (fingers crossed and all that goes with it) that I won't make assumptions anymore. This series has proven me wrong so many times that I finally decided to just lay back and see where the story finally goes. Which means of course that I'll have to read it faster so that I don't have time to spend thinking about it and supposing. :D

Started this morning and finished the first 3 chapters (the 4th to follow after some of my chores are done)

It sure starts with a bang!
Chapter 1
(view spoiler)

Mrs. Wurts is so amazing in describing human character! What is good and what is wrong? Where do you draw the line and when do you throw the first stone? And her characters are so real and human in everything they do! If it's one thing only that you learn from reading about them, that should be not to be so harsh or rush in judging but wait and see it all come to pass.


Sandra  (sleo) | 179 comments Yes, I LOVE the scenes with the free wraiths and Sethvir is my favorite, although Asandir also has a warm place in my heart.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments I love Asandir also. :) But Sethvir is by far my favourite.

The magic is great! I don't think I've ever read anything else with such a complex and intricate magic system.
Mage powers combined with farsight and power of music, energy/power lanes and wards laid with the help of runes, and so much more. It's just as complex as the characters and I absolutely love it!

Chapter 2 made me a bit sad because (view spoiler)


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Asandir is my man all the way 😀! but I like all the weird wizards in their own way 😈


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Chapter 3 made me ride a whole range of emotions.
(view spoiler)


Sandra  (sleo) | 179 comments Gah! I’m in Chapter 6! Deep things coming! 😲


Daniel | 1536 comments Just finished. On to the next one!


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Chapter 4 - I didn't see that coming!
(view spoiler)


Daniel | 1536 comments Yes the reveals in this book tend to be big!


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments I am starting this tonight:)

I agree! And felt the same in both cases. :)


Daniel | 1536 comments Not sure who is finished, but the last two chapters are stunning. Do not even want to hide under a spoiler tag and take the chance on spoiling it for anyone! Enjoyed this book the best out of the first three.

I sort of got used to Arithon being the meek little mouse always running away

An ungenerous husband indeed!

I loved it too! Cried at one point! Her use of characters and portrayal of their emotional journey is so genius!


Sandra  (sleo) | 179 comments Is there a schedule for starting Fugitive Prince?


Daniel | 1536 comments Sandra wrote, I loved it too! Cried at one point! Her use of characters and portrayal of their emotional journey is so genius!
The ebb and flow of character development is very good. Cannot wait to see how the third arc in the story plays out! Have started Fugitive Prince by Janny Wurts today...


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments @Sandra - you've got my spoiler seen there in your reply. Could you please edit a bit cause Olivia and Choko haven't reached that chapter yet. :)

We've set Fugitive Prince on the 15th. And the rest of the books same 15th each month.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Chapter 5
(view spoiler)

I didn't get further than this because of a very full weekend but I'm back at it now.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments I don't remember reading any other book that has made me feel so much and change moods so sudden and often! This is brilliant!

Chapter 6
(view spoiler)

And now I'm off to 7 because I just can't set this down.


Olivia (vinjii) | 1055 comments Oh. Wow. Chapter 3 broke my heart. And basically my thoughts are exactly what Laura said above.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Chapter 7 was horrifying.
(view spoiler)


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Chapter 8 - I think there may be something wrong with me!!

(view spoiler)


Daniel | 1536 comments Lmao there is nothing wrong with you! Those scenes could elicit a wide range of emotions from anyone.


Olivia (vinjii) | 1055 comments Chapter 4 made me chuckle. (view spoiler)


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Olivia wrote: "Chapter 4 made me chuckle. [spoilers removed]"

Mirrored mine also. :D

Phew! I was really wondering about that! :) Cause you and Sandra both finished and neither of you mentioned anything about it. :D

@Sandra - thank you for editing. 😘


Daniel | 1536 comments I thought (view spoiler)


Olivia (vinjii) | 1055 comments I feel like I could probably say “read Laura’s thoughts” instead of typing anything :D


Daniel | 1536 comments Much easier that way :D


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments @Olivia - I could say the same for yours. :D

@Daniel spoiler for chapter 8
(view spoiler)


Daniel | 1536 comments @Laura spoiler for chapter 8

I agree.


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Twenty % in... I HATE Lysear! I rarely hate a book character so much, but the way he spins everything and makes his brother look like a monster even when he is being nice, honorable and ernest, makes me filled with rage! And L is so self absorbed and confident, I want him to suffer! He just arrived at the village and managed to screw with the villagers minds already, and I feel so horrible... 😢😡😢😡


Choko (chokog) | 5103 comments Ooo, I forgot to say, the whole sequence with the wraiths and the wizards was AMAZING! I was on the edge of my seat throughout! 😈
