Vosper's Revenge is the conclusion of the Dragon Stone Saga. The first two books were Dragon Stones (Book one of the Dragon Stones Saga) and Return of the Dragon Riders: Book Two of the Dragon Stone Saga. Author has announced a second series, The Chronicles of Tallin, to be based in the same universe and with planned publication in 2013.
No major editing or writing issues were noted. As with the other books in this series, Vosper's Revenge is short. The combined length of this series would be more appropriate for a single publication instead of a trilogy. Vosper's Revenge is 3,411 Kindle locations long. Standard length "paperback" novels seem to run in the 4,500 to 7,000 plus Kindle location range. Long novels can range from 15,000 to 20,000 plus Kindle locations.
This book picks up right where the last one leaves off, Elias preparing for his destiny, the final showdown with Vosper. Like the other three books, every page is full of action and the ending is actually not very predictable. Of course, you always know the good guy wins in a series like this, but you’ll never guess how until you read it!
I was given a free copy of the first three books of this series in exchange for honest reviews. I think I will keep reading the series, however, because I’ve grown attached to the characters. They are just so alive and complex. I want to learn more about these people and this world that Kristian Alva created.
The third book in this series picks up with the dragon rider Elias and his young dragon Nydeired. The dragon has now grown from the young hatchling seen at the end of the second book. Their training is continued by my personal favorite character Tallin, the dwarf halfling.
As with her previous books, the author enjoys weaving mystery, bloodlines, loyalties, and battle throughout the tale. In this book I was able to learn more about the main elves Carnesir, AMandila, and Feanor, as well as their dragons.
Truefully, I am unsure of whether I like the authors rendition of elves. Though I had pictured elves as aloof and cool, it was hard for me to picture them as being neither good nor evil, simply following their desires. I feel as though following desires shows where the heart is. In my opinion, desires that only serve self interest, lust, or power do show an evil nature, while a desire to do good shows a good one, just as this is seen with Bolrakei Shalevault, the clan leader of Klora-Kanna.
Additional characters that are revisited include Thorin, the dwarf who originally helped Elias evade capture, served as his mentor, and now aided Sela and their battle against the evil emperor, Chau and his dragon, as well as the main character seen in the previous books.
I was surprised when Floki and his family where mentioned again and at the change they had gone through. While I like stories that have a happy ending for all characters, I admire the author for including characters whose lives took unfortunate but realistic turns as well as including characters of various races, temperaments, and moral compasses.
I feel this is the first book where we have such vivid descriptions of Vosper, his goals and aspirations as well as the fact that he is fading away and will soon die if he does not find another solution to extend his already lengthy lifespan.
While there are many powers, magic, and spells woven throughout the book, the power of forgiveness is central to the core of the story as well as its outcome. I loved how Elias, despite the prophecy, decides to focus on his innate gift of healing, both of the heart and of the body as he travels back to his origins as well as revisits past betrayals.
The resolutions at the end of the book startled me, as I had expected the cliche ending that most prophecies regarding evil kings and their sworn enemies. Instead, the author came up with a unique and unexpected ending. An ending and begining…leaving the book at gaping future torn between a bright new life and unresolved tensions between several of the races.
I do find it odd that the chapter titles have all been one to two words. For me it was hard to find where I left off using the table of contents and I feel the title could be more colorful. I also remained confused as to why the book was titled Vosper’s Revenge. I feel it did not reflect the nature of the book.
