Book Description

Isabel reaches Karth, tormented by the influence of the Wraith Queen, and quickly becomes embroiled in the conflict between the House of Karth and the Reishi Army Regency. Before she can form any meaningful alliance with the Karth family, she must first challenge a dark and sinister power that has kept the Isle of Karth in thrall for millennia.

The harsh snows of winter have arrived, stalling open warfare in Fellenden, but Zuhl presses the attack, relying on the power of his dragons to carry the day and dealing a blow to Alexander that is as devastating as it is personal.

Abandoned by the love of his life, Alexander wakes among the dragons of Tyr. Bedridden by a grievous injury, he struggles with the limitations of his magic in a desperate effort to help the two people he loves most survive the winter, while also preparing his allies for the coming spring. What he discovers about the true nature of his calling might change everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for a bargain price February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cursed Bones is the fifth installment in a longer series by David A. Wells. If you were thinking about picking this one up without reading the previous four first, let me stop you right here and now. Don't. While in some series you can enter into the series with any book and quickly be able to grasp what's happening, the same can't really be said for the Sovereign of the Seven Isles. That's not a knock against the series, just a fact. I would recommend starting at the beginning, and working through the five books in order.

Cursed Bones itself is, overall, a pretty decent read. It picks up immediately after the cliffhanger Blood of the Earth ended with. The story is becoming increasingly fragmented as the different major characters spread apart, following their own paths. Each character faces their own complications that must be overcome to guard against all of the ongoing threats to Alexander's rule and the peace of the Seven Isles. All of these stories are linked together through Alexander and his clairvoyant ability to send his consciousness across vast distances and watch over events. In essence it allows the protagonist to be present throughout the book, even when not physically there.

This is what causes the story to slip a bit though, and is my biggest issue with the book. Alexander's ability is used far too often as a crutch to solve problems, robbing the characters at the heart of these various struggles of figuring out a solution for themself. In every case Alexander has already seen everything, and has a course of action ready for them to follow. After four books, the characters are becoming familiar, and it would have been nice to see them evolve on their own. Having Alexander ready with a plan for them makes that difficult.

With each book, David A.

This book is very tantalizing. I can't wait for book 7! If you are looking for fast action and adventure I highly recommend the Sovereign of the Seven Isles series!

4.0 out of 5 stars continued excellence January 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
No 5 continues the excellent characterisation of the previous books.

Story thread a bit challenging but grips nonetheless.

Will be sad to start 6 though cannot wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars David Wells does it again January 18, 2014
By Travis
Format:Kindle Edition
For a series of books that I was not sure I liked in book one, I have quickly become engrossed in the story. This book is no different, diving into Karth and the mysteries of the jungle. Excellent addition to the series and one I highly recommend if you've already read the previous books in the series. If you have not, please do not start here, read them in order to maximize the story.

As always. I loved the story. Be forewarned, however, you need to start the story from book 1 or the story will not make sense.

This book had some interesting errors in it, but it was still a good read. I like how the focus shifted more to the other characters. I'm moving on to the next book now, right now.

Ending with Isabel
"Phane stumbled backwards... still crawling backward..." Earlier In the book Alexander disappeared when he got within 10 ft. of Isabel. I assume Phane simply crawled beyond the 10 ft. mark before using his magic. I can't say why the author chose not to explain that, but it is a very... Read More
