So, we are at the peak of the story with this book; all three youngsters now know how powerful they can be and that power means responsibility, otherwise you easily become a monster. All three of them realize what's at stake and try to look for some answers, some clues as to what they are supposed to be doing and how they are supposed to save the world... All of them also at least once meet their great enemies and come out of those meetings more or less victorious... And what about us? Well, we are left biting our nails and impatiently waiting for the next book to be published:)
As always with Eric T. Knigh's books, you can't ask for a more gripping tale. It's not a simple fantasy, where your hero just hops on his horse, rescues the princess/lady in distress and thus saves the world. No, Eric's tales are much darker, peopled by characters who have tons of doubts, who make mistakes, choose wrong and go through turmoils and heartbreaks; but they also feel love and happiness, and can be merciful and forgiving, and never really lose hope... And they grow, and change, and we somehow grow together with them...
Also, Eric's a master at world-building - a word here, a word there and you just see the barren deserts, the rocky mountains, the claustrophobic forests and the unnerving deapths of the sea...
So, if you like good fantasy, if you like your tales to be complex and peopled by psychologically believeable characters, this is definitely a series for you.
Review Just finished reading this magnificent 3rd book of this awesome epic series and i cannot believe that the books could get any better but this one just did! The three children are coming into their own and realising their own strengths and how to manipulate them. Aislin was always sure of her power and never afraid to use it, Karliss is realising his own strength and how to harness the aranti to his will and Fen is still struggling to accept what he is. They are shapers of sky, stone and sea and the tablets have the words of power for all three, and only they can protect the key from the devourers and the chaos power which comes from the abyss but they don't even know about one another and alone they face so much danger. I loved the lightness Eric introduced to the section about Aislin and her new friend Liv, both girls so full of spunk and Aislin learning how to be a friend. Also in Karliss section Nergui gives the lightness needed in the book but Fen's section is full of the stress caused by war and it's cruelty especially when the Fist is being manipulated and he loses all he stood for!! Cannot believe i have to wait till 2018 for the next book! This series is one of the strongest epic fantasy sagas i have ever read and just needs to be read by all fellow lovers of fantasy!
Fen is so stupid in this book he can barely form a coherent thought. Fen can’t speak, act or even move on his own. Fen is presented as so weak-willed and idiotic he can’t even not tell everyone what he is because they question him some. Seriously? That shows some real backbone and growth. What happened to the can-do guy? Apparently the prior Fen got thrown under the bus.
Aislin is another one who got dumber as the series went on. Instead of being enhanced by human emotion - she became a blithering idiot. On top of that she’s apparently already distracted by boys to stupidity at the ripe age of 12.
Oh then to top it all off, let’s have the biggest, fattest cliche of all - everyone thinks that because they didn’t see it with their own eyeballs that the bad guy must only have one piece of the key! Who is that stupid? Certainly not even 12yr olds (or 14yr old super shamans or 18yr rock Meisters) especially in a supposed culture of constant world-ending wars.
Had Ravin forced the hand of her captor, died while trying to rally Fen and Fen ran away with the piece of the key - Wow! Had Trelyn died, Aislin fought, her bff injured almost to death and yet Aislin saved that piece of the key again Wow!
Having them reenact the needs of one outweigh the needs of the many - totally exasperating considering the entire is supposed to be about the children maturing into saviors - not the regression into I’m all about selfish me and my wants and my needs and my feelings and that’s all that matters. Why bother having them age at all? Grow them up just so you can sink their maturity back to an 8yr-old.
I hope the next book is redemption and the author realizes that there are no happy endings for everyone. There is no triumph without sacrifice. The “good guys” rarely get what they deserve and most often get everything they don’t deserve.
