+ Captivating story and characters
+ Alot of new items/ideas were introduced in this story and they worked well
- Not many complaints, the biggest being the shortness previously addressed.
- Lack of map makes for some confusing reading at times. I kept getting confused on West/East references, and location of other countries.
- Killing characters is OK, and can definitely be key to story progression and character growth. HOWEVER, i felt this was one of the areas that was glossed over in this book. More details at the time and more details on the impact these key deaths has would be welcome. For example: There was not a single mention of how Oskar felt about a certain death or how it affected him after the fact.
- I would like to see character 'stumbles'. Shanis shouldn't make the 'right' decision every time.
- Minor typos and " " misuse. As Lerryn charged into a battle he was called "Larris" once.
The group of 6 have gone separate directions. Khalyndryn gave her life for Shanis. Oskar has gone with a seeker to learn the ways of a saikur. Larris, Allyn, Hierm, and two others have gone to Archstone, Larris’ home. Shanis has stay with the clans to lead them. While Shanis is uniting the clans and leading them in fighting against invaders, Oskar is learning to use magic, fight, and other things as well as getting a girlfriend, Lizzie. Hierm is sent to search for the new king of Galdora. The friends finally meet up and unit to fight the Frostmarch, the invasion by the newly risen evil god Tichris, the Ice King, raised by dark magic and human sacrifice. The prophesy has lead all to believe that Shanis is the one to fight the Ice King using the Silver Serpent.
This is a must read to conclude the tale of The Absent Gods. There are many great characters giving us great role models as well as those who show us how not to be.
I'm always hesitant to read any more new fantasy, as I find most of it lame, and rehashed. But, much to my surprise, this was not the case.
I started the first book with a jaundiced eye, but a (relatively) open mind. By the time I got to the end of the first book, I was more than ready to read the second. By the time I finished the second, and was deep into the third book, I was wishing that there were more to look forward to.
So, it's easy to say that I wish that it would have been longer, or that there were more to read, but it was very entertaining, and I'll look forward to hoping that there will be more in the future.
