Description

I think I have a vague idea of where Nisongs story is heading and if it’s what I think then I am actually here and very interested. Surrounded by rugged coastline, dramatic castles and rolling countryside, Beth loves nothing more than shutting her door on all that and curling up with a cuppa and a book instead. Sometimes a book of a rare, exquisite quality makes it into your hands whereas upon reading just a few pages, you almost can’t handle the melody of the written word. I would still highly recommend the first book in this series, The Bone Shard Daughter, but I will admit I have mixed feelings towards the sequels. Eu gostaria de ser capaz de fazer mudanças para o que seria o meu "final feliz" ideal, (sim, leio livros por finais felizes, se eu quiser desgraça e só ligar a TV) porém desde o começo o tom da trama demonstrava que o final seria dentro destes moldes.

The strangest thing was that Lin went from being me favorite character (by far) to being irritating and whiny. My Patrons: Alfred, Aliysa, Anastasia, Andrew, Andrew W, Annabeth, Arliss, Barbara, Brad, Cade, Casey, Chris, Diana, Dylan, Edward, Elias, Ellen, Gary, Hamad, Helen, Jenn, Jesse, Jimmy Nutts, Joie, Kristina, Luis, Lufi, Melinda, Michael, Michael, Miracle, Nicholas, Norbert, Radiah, Samuel, Sarah, Sarah, Scott, Shawn, Teri, Tori, Tracy, Wendy, Wick, Xero, Yuri, Zoe.Whether it be our main character Lin, or our favorite creature Mephi, we know their story inside and out. It’s a brilliant conclusion to The Drowning Empire series, and I’m still thinking about all of the epic characters and that masterful ending! We’re a collaborative review site run by volunteers who love Fantasy, Sci-fi, Horror, and everything in-between. It has been a while since I read the first two books so it seems as if there are a lot more POV characters in the 3rd book probably with the aim of tieing all the plot points to bring together the finale, but not enough Jovis and Mephi for me. Nils: I was most surprised by Nisong as she was a character who I had previously hated, believing her to be evil, yet in this finale I grew to really sympathise and even become fond of her.

Although I did say there were a few sections in the middle of The Bone Shard War that felt repetitive, I was rewarded by the final 150 pages. Through all the upheaval, betrayal, revelations and challenges our characters face these bonds are what grounds them and motivates them to carry on. It’s interesting because her enemies are working to oust Lin, yet Lin truly is selfless in her determination to do right by her kingdom and people.

sorry but not everything needs to be forcefully stretched into a long ass trilogy if you only have ideas for at most two 400 page books. These are amazing concepts and I was enthralled, but then I started asking questions like: But how do you actually rule an empire consisting of migrating islands? How do you build a story around these concepts and develop them further to make sense in a scope of this world and not just bunch of cool things thrown together? Same goes for Nisong who allied herself with Ragan which hits you right away with surprise and wanting to know how this alliance came to be. I love “secret histories” as a trope, there’s always a lesson there; are you protecting people by hiding the truth of things, or ultimately are you just going to make things worse?

I understand this all adds to romance conflict as well which wasn't necessary imo, but it reflected in significantly less Mephi content which is criminal because their bond is the most important part of his characterization. There were some interesting plots twists that explained the mysteries in the magic, without feeling like cheap tricks. We find Jovis, a beloved favorite character of mine, roaming The Endless Sea and under Kaphra’s ruling command.The first half of this novel sees our characters on side quests or on missions to thwart each other’s plans.
