Voice of the Lost is the perfect sequel to The Silence of Medair. The first book is a political fantasy that's epic in scope, and Voice continues to develop the themes of colonialism, empire, and sacrifice and a controversial romance is set in motion. Medair chooses to side with the descendants of her invaders while facing an oncoming apocalypse brought on by wild magic. Talk about raising the stakes!

I loved this book, and it has the strengths of The Silence of Medair, but with a slightly different focus. It's still character-driven, but there's less brooding introspection and more political intrigues. Medair is thrust in the midst of a war and makes tough choices, possibly earning her place as a villain in history. What makes it interesting is how she deals with it, and how she views heroism, sacrifice, and ethics in herself and the colonizers. Medair's character development is one of the best I've seen in the fantasy genre.

I must commend the author for how she handles magic in the world-setting. Magic systems are best explained in some books, while in others, it's best left as a mysterious force of nature-whichever helps the suspension of disbelief. Höst treats it as the latter, and it works. Magic is a messy thing in this world-it merges parallel worlds, triggers a looming apocalypse, and even changes people's ethnicity-which is a big deal in a historical reality of heated colonizer vs. colonized dynamics. While those are all crazy, its believable because the emotional consequences for the characters are so real, and that's the key achieving verisimilitude in fantastical literature. I don't know how the author pulled it off, but she deserves mad props.

Andrea K Host's "The Silence of Medair" was definitely one of my top reads of this year, and I was very excited to get my hands on the sequel so soon after I read the first book (score for self-publishing!).

This sequel is a very enjoyable continuation of the story, but one of the things that kept jumping out at me is how weird the pacing is compared to most fantasy novels (not that that's a bad thing!). The story's highs and lows are based on Medair's emotional investment in events--thus the last book ended on a momentous decision she made, not the conclusion of war, and in this book the war started and finished in the very beginning. In most books, I think, the first book would have just been a bit longer, and the story would have ended there. But Medair still has some major emotional issues to work out (did she support the right side? is she a traitor? is it okay for her to deeply care about some of the "White Snakes"?), so the story continues. There is another potentially world-shattering event that functions as the climax of this story, but even that seems to matter most in the context of Medair's personal growth. The conclusion was wonderfully unexpected--and showed how much Medair has really grown over the course of the two novels--though in retrospect I can see how it was somewhat hinted at throughout the story (I'm not telling you how it ends; read and find out!). All in all, Medair's story is a very satisfying example of how to write about epic and fantastical events without being epic fantasy--this is a character-driven novel through and through, and I'd love to read more stories written in this manner.

That being said, I still want to find out more about Medair's later life! Ms. Host leaves herself plenty of room to write another book set in this world--I'd say most likely from the prince's perspective--and while I don't think such a book is in the works, I will keep hoping!

E-publishing definitely has advantages and one of them is being able to read this author. I read both the Medair books recently and have ordered everthing else this author has written. Excellent character creation, great new world, -- just enormously appealing books. I'll buy everything else she writes in future as well. Style is somewhere between Michelle Sagara and Robin McKinley but her voice is her own. One of my best reads this year.

I loved it. Reminded me of crown of vengeance book by Mercedes lackey. Awesome heroine, unexpected ending, a bit angsty but in a good way. You should definitely read it, I'm on a quest to discover more books like this (similar magic system, hero's and heroines, and style of writing).
