A little honey before the vinegar. Nicole Conway does create characters that you feel for. Part of the frustration with this book is that her characters are interesting and you care about what happens to them and the relationships they have developed. She's shown at least that she's willing to take chances in her stories. I feel that she would be great in writing epic fantasies with multiple points of views. The story still pulls you in but not as deeply as the previous three books because there's always a feeling it's something just a little off.
The truth is the series could have been wrapped up easily in the third book. In order to stretch out a fourth book we are given a new point of view from Felix in large part of the final book leaving only 7 chapters in total for the main protagonist, Jaevid, in the middle. The first part of the book takes up most of the story in which we follow Felix around for the three months that Jaevid was lost in the forest. While it is interesting to see a romantic relationship evolve with the character for the most part it's simply depressing and was summed up in the previous book with Felix punching his friend in the face. It feels bizarre that the third part of the book comes from Felix's point of view as he watches Jaevid. I feel this choice would have been okay so long as the author had done such things in the previous three books. Instead it felt like an awkward story with the pacing wasn't quite right and information dumping was much less smooth and mmore redundant. The resolution of the of the series comes off as wonky as if the author was trying too hard to surprise the reader with certain twist of Fates.
Nicole Conway makes decisions in this work that are hard to pull off making the story feel both too short and too long at the same time. For and ending of a series that was supposed to have an Epic Fantasy feel it felt rushed. I was sorely disappointed in what should have been an epic Clash involving swords and plenty of action be almost fast-forwarded through making what had been a supposedly hardcore antagonist into a laughable villain. The entire confrontation that the book series was leading to comes and goes in a blink of an eye. Point A to point B with no twist in between. Even as I give my review I find myself liking the story less and less. Too much of what had been set forth in the previous three books unravels at the end and does somewhat taint the series.
That said considering the author is going to have a sequel series I'm more than likely will read it but with a great deal more caution and trepidation. A Series has to be really bad for me not to finish it or pick up stories that follows in it.
Misfits who change everthing. The dragons always pick their intended rider. A small, weak gray elf, hardly able to pick up a sword, picked by a dragon ? A young lad befriends him at the dragonrider college. They have many things to overcome. Hidden talents come out. Now add the blackness of evil.
There are still other charactors involved. A raven haired rider in black on the biggest dragon anyone had everseen, only showing up when needed, with skills beyond reason, and then simply disappears.
There has never been a time a young girl has been picked by a dragon as a rider.
Life weaves throughout the story. Growing up, love, best friends, birth, war, death, and honour.
