Rattle the Bones (Book 6)
Eric has the ability to captivate the reader with a compelling plot, a myriad of supernatural characters (both good and evil), and fantastic battle scenes filled with blood and gore. His characters are unique. I love it when Aeros or Happy make an appearance. Mix in his sometimes dark sometimes snarky sense of humor and the reader is left with a deep sense of satisfaction.
"Rattle the Bones" continues Vesik's battle against Gwynn Ap Nudd, the Fae king, and his dark-touched. Vesik and his allies face their biggest challenge to date in a thoroughly enjoyable read.
While I enjoyed, the book immensely, it is not without its flaws. Flaws might be too strong a term...Eric might have crossed the boundaries into a few of my pet peeves. Here they are:
*It is a continuing saga. Each book in the Vesik series builds on each other. Just once I'd like the story line to end so a new one can begin.
*Since it's a continuing saga, I don't always remember what has gone on before. A synopsis or foreword to remind the reader of what has gone on before would be greatly appreciated.
*Cast of thousands in each book. It seems like every character that has appeared in his previous books are always included. Sometimes the dead should stay buried...even though we are dealing with a powerful necromancer.
*Sometimes it seems like authors like to use profanity for profanity's sake. I know the common trend/reason is it adds realism to a story. I read to escape the real world. I don't need profanity to bring me back into the real world. However, it doesn't bother me if it makes sense in the situation. It did bother me immensely when Vesik proclaims "I trained with Leviticus f...ing Aureus". I hate it when the F word becomes someone's middle name.
I admit I'm a dinosaur. A teacher once told a group of us when I was much younger that "Profanity is the language of the inarticulate." It has stuck in my mind all these many years...For what it's worth, I pass it on to my nephew...Eric R. Asher.
Despite, my pet peeves "Rattle the Bones" is a solid book. While it could be read as a standalone, I would strongly suggest that the reader start with the earlier works. It would help to understand both the story line and help to establish the characters in your mind.
The story IS a continuation so it is necessary to have read the previous books in the series so as not to be lost. I had waited months to learn what happened following "Destroyer Rising" and desperately wanted to help Foster gain his revenge. The story felt rushed in some parts but yet in others it was great. I just have mixed feelings about this one but I'm not certain if it's the book or if it's my disappointment in not getting the ending that I wanted...lol. Eric Asher has left me with somewhat of a cliffhanger and need for Vesik fix. Not too soon though so i can't complain about a rushed story aagain (((wink)))
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. This story continues what was started in the first five books. The battle with the Fae King and the Undine Queen and their followers continue to cause problems. Will Damien, Zola, and friends be able to stop them? As losses mount on both sides, the stakes get higher, especially for Damien.
Will I continue to read future books in the series? Of course I will.
"...on to your tail feathers, "I whispered to Graybeard. I heard the pirate captain scream for his skeletal crew to make ready, felt the sails on the ship collapse and be..." you'll have to read it to find out more. I've been reading since I was 12 and that was in 1979, and Eric Asher is easily up there with Donaldson, Eddings, Briggs and Wilks. I do not think that Eric can write anything bad. Highly Highly recommend.
This book picks up from the last one pretty much in real-time. The events of the last book are still raw and still sting. And that's just the reader! The characters are interesting to watch as they struggle to navigate a new normal while continuing to fight for the good of humanity. There are just as many twists and turns in this book as the others, but at a calmer pace. I think after book 5 we all needed a little breather.
This book carries on the timbre of light-hearted moments, very dark moments, romance, and my favorite "so is this person good, bad, or good-bad?" READ THIS! You won't regret it.
