I'm starting a couple days early because I finished up with my other audiobook.


Tammie | 3827 comments I started last night. I love that it was so easy to pick up where the last book left off. I'm already completely engrossed in the story.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3907 comments I'm a little late. Need a couple more days to finish my current read before I start a new one.


Tammie | 3827 comments My favorite part of the book so far. Chapter 19 (view spoiler)


Elizabeth (elizabeths01) | 988 comments I finished listening to it today at work. I don't know, I loved Suri's parts, but most of the parts in the Pyre (is that how it's spelled?) just didn't impress me too much. I liked it, but overall it's probably my least favorite so far.


Tammie | 3827 comments I think I liked it about the same as the last book. Nothing was astounding, but it was an enjoyable read.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3907 comments I started today. Hope to have some updates tomorrow.

I also finished it. I liked it a bit more than the last book as I felt the pacing was better, but I have to agree, I enjoyed Suri's parts a lot more than the other story lines.


Elena | 40 comments I finished too, and I also liked this more than the last one! Suri’s parts are my favorites too, and (view spoiler)

Listening to the book on audio made me realize it is a bit hard to talk about the series only because I had no idea how to spell some of the character names (like Mawyndulë).


Elizabeth (elizabeths01) | 988 comments Same Jenna! I read the first few on kindle, but didn't remember by the time I listened to this.


Frank | 650 comments I enjoyed the book, but I think for some reason I enjoyed the previous one. The setting for me was depressing, although I did enjoy many parts especially Suri.

It will be interesting to see how Michael will button everything up.

Uh... it's spelled MONDULAY ;)

For sure...

I read this yesterday, and don't have much to add... I liked the first 3 books more than this 3-part conclusion... I liked how MJS acknowledged the risks of a story like this in the Foreword, tho, and Robin's summary of the mythology revelations in the Afterword...

I could probably listen to Royce/Hadrian books forever, but won't particularly mind when this series ends and The Rise & The Fall begins... the fact tR&tF is going to have a larger timescale should be interestings, spanning/jumping hundreds of years?...

Have you read Riyria Revelations?... the things we know from that series really frustrate me in this series a bit, regarding Mawyndule (view spoiler)

Yes! I loved reading about Royce and Hadrian, although I hadn't made the connection about Mawyndulë (view spoiler)

That was a poignant moment.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3907 comments I suddenly feel like I need to reread all the Royce and Hadrian books. So many details I forgot.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3907 comments I'm still at about 60%. I am going really slow with this one. Part of it is that I'm reading it, and not listening. And part of it is just that every time I pick it up I read a couple of pages and put it back down. I don't know why but it's just not grabbing me like the other books did. I miss Raithe.

Me as well. I feel like I'm not making a lot of the connections I should be making as I haven't read the first Riyria books in a long time.
