Book Description

The child Anghara Kir Hama was forcedto flee the kingdom she rightfully ruled, escaping the murderous wrath of her brother, the usurper, who would see her dead to secure the throne. But her years spent in a strange desert land -- honing the miraculous power called Sight -- have forever changed the young queen. And now it is time to claim what is hers.

But treachery greets Anghara upon her return to a realm suffering under the cruelty of the bloodthirsty tyrant Sif. In the dungeons of her enemy, she awaits an inevitable death, robbed of the gift that set her apart from all others. Yet those who have sworn to defend her will not rest until their cherished queen is safe, including one whose noble heart belongs to her alone. For young Anghara's remarkable destiny is greater than crowns and countries -- greater even than the fearsome Old Gods who must stand down to make way for the Changer of Days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good kind of Different!!!! February 2, 2008
By E. Hill
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved the way this book was written. The characters weren't talking to each other in this book, they were talking to me. I felt as if I was there experiencing what they did, felt and shared. There wasn't meaningless dialouge in here. Changer of Days drew me in and didn't let go until the very end. The places where they traveled seemed so realistic and yet vague enough to let me still use my own imagination. I felt something with each and every character be it happiness, sadness, angst, anger, betrayal and exhaustion. I can't wait to re-read it. I would definately recommend that you buy and read this duology. A definate good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the new words I added to my vocabulary! June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book (Hidden Queen) was so good I could not put it down, but this one was even better! The land of Kheldrin being the best of mystical places with their priestesses. Anghara is finally going to claim her thrown after being on the run since the age of 9. But taking her kingdom by force against her own brother? It is a hard thing to do!

2.0 out of 5 stars If you're bored....check it out from the library October 21, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am actually quite suprised to see so many positive reviews of this book. The first in the series "Hidden Queen" was actually a decent read. I'd give it 3.5 stars. Things just went down hill from there though.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the characters are very flat with absolutely no motivation behind many of their actions. The protagonist becomes a god without warning,,,and apparently not a powerful one. There were no other deities to oppose her...one would think the book should have ended right there. The romance is lukewarm at best. Give me a REASON for someone to fall in love.

The antagonist had odd personality changes throughout the book. At one point he kills an entire community of women (burns them alive) to get to the protaganist. However after years of searching for the protaganist when he finally captures her he just twiddles his thumbs and leaves her wasting in a dungeon for months.....to be rescued. I found it a little hard to believe a ruthless war hero king who clained his throne by force of arms would find himself incapable of removing the one person in the way of him staying on the throne permanently.

In summary, the characters are flat, lack motivation and personality. The romance is contrived and so are many of the "relationships" between characters in the book. The ending is anti-climatic. The author spends the last 30 pages or so closing up an extremely boring romance. Don't think Martin, Don't think Hobb, Don't think Fallon, Don't think Jordan, Don't think Haydon. Trust me...it's subpar.

More About the Author

"I have a wonderful occupation; I dream for a living." Alma Alexander
----- ------ ----- ----- -----

Alma Alexander, the 'Duchess of Fantasy,' was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists. When she was ten, her family left Europe and moved to Africa. Since then she has lived in several countries on four continents and now lives in America with a husband she met on the Internet

She has written three million words in more than 20 books and one of her novels, "The Secrets of Jin-shei," has been published around the world in 14 languages. The heroine of her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series is as American as Harry Potter is British. The first book in another young adult series about a shape-shifting Were family will be published shortly.

When asked what she would be if she weren't a writer, she quotes Ursula LeGuin's answer to that question: "Dead."

Alma is a punaholic and a chronic worrier, one of those people who proves that real pessimists are truly born and not made. She is owned by a cat. She was born on the fifth day of July (the day after America), six years before man walked on the moon, which makes her a cancer according to the Western horoscope and a water rabbit according to the Chinese one.
