Conklin has written one of those books that gets in to your brain and whispers to you anytime you aren't reading it. The adventure is very much your own for with his characters, Conklin draws from the reader the magic they didn't realize they were bringing with them. Like most stories the overarching battle is good against evil, the characters each must face the darkness and demons that lie inside the soul of anyone who loves, hates, strives, and suffers. Some win. Some lose.
Eulogy is a journey with many roads that wind along all moving in the same direction and yet not toward the same goal. The roads intersect at times before blending together in to one truly remarkable adventure.
The characters are all forced to change as war confronts them - there is a prophecy at work here, and the prophets children, Fier and Villien want to stop their father from his insane plans. Villien, like Kipra, is filled with hate for her parent, but to the n-th degree. Fier is more philosophical. They both want to see their father again - Villien just wants to kill him as well.
By the time war hits Ark's city all bets are off. Grief, loss, kidnapping, insanity and loyalty all play a roll as the world spins every which way. The resulting action makes the title meaningful in a way in which I would not have guessed. The eulogy itself was so moving when you know what it means (they start the book with it, but it makes little sense), that I can feel myself getting sad even now. What higher praise can I give a book than that. It is a work of art.Read more ›
The cover draws you in. When I first saw it, it brought horror to my mind more than fantasy, but in retrospect, it's appropriate. This isn't a clear cut tale of good against evil. There's real characters here, with darkness in their hearts, demons clawing at their souls.
There's a mad king, a guard, a spitfire. There's others too. With such a vast cast of characters, it's remarkable that I found something to like in each of them. And in a few, something to love.
Irreor Ark lies at the center of the tale. He's the guard, the nice guy, forced to fight for the ones he loves. At the beginning, some may call him the farm-boy. Reminiscent of Luke Skywalker and Rand Al'Thor, he starts out the Archetypical Hero. But, oh, how he changes. The overwhelming circumstances Irreor is put in, the horrible, twisted things he is made to do, made me feel sorry for him. They made me care for him.
I loved Irreor. Rooted for him throughout the entire book--so important in such a long book. And yet, Conklin did something near impossible. He made me love another character even more.
Kipra. The spitfire. The perfect blend of fire and ice.
Her sister followed in their mother's footsteps. And their mother was a whore. But Kipra is different. She will not be used. Right from the start, she's a complex character, and I loved picking away at her thoughts. See, Conklin throws you into a character's head, submerges you in their personality.Read more ›
