I forgot what it's like to fall into one of Deborah Chester's novels and worlds: think epic battles of good vs. evil with real heroes and villains, heroines with spunk, and of course a romance thrown in. But the momentum always keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat.In this series, we meet Lea, sister to the emperor and beloved of all. In a ploy to dethrone her brother, she is kidnapped by a former army hero who no longer has a soul and fights the madness within him on a daily basis.I s [...]
I couldn't do it. There is nothing wrong with the story. I was liking it but then I realized there wasn't going to be any smex in it, and there is suppose to be a cliffhanger. That's okay in a book I know there will be some eventually. I will wait until the whole series is out, and then I'll give it another try.
This book was actually one I found at Value Village and picked up for like $2 as it sounded interesting. I'm glad I actually bought it, as I really liked it, and can't wait to get the sequel, as well as the other books by this author.
1.5 SterneOkay, "Die Tränen des Lichts" war eine ziemliche Enttäuschung, besonders wenn man die ganzen positiven Bewertungen bei betrachtet, die für mich persönlich vollkommen ungerechtfertigt sind. Man kann den Roman recht schnell lesen, da er einfach geschrieben ist, aber viel mehr positives gibt es nicht zu sagen. Aber erst einmal zu den negativen Punkten und davon gibt es recht viele.Zum einen war der Roman sprachlich eine mittlere bis große Katastrophe. Ich kann mir auch nicht vorstel [...]
I rather liked this one. It was soon obvious as I was reading that I missed a lot of the world building and magic system from the previous trilogy (I was unaware the books were connected when I bought this one), but I still managed to enjoy it and I even put the previous trilogy on my "to read" list. A quick perusal told me this book has ratings all over the map, and I can understand why. There's not a lot of character development (though I do like Shadrael, Lea, and Thirbe) and the plot is rath [...]
This story picks up after the trilogy that introduced us to this world and the central figure's brother. The first time I read the other series, I quite liked it; but as time passed and I revisited it, I liked it less and less.This book begins with instability in the country, and plots to overthrow the Emperor abound. One of them is fixed on the abduction of his beloved sister, Lea (who is beautiful, sweet, good etc etc). Her abductor is a soulless (literally) captain from the old guard military [...]
I understand that this is the first book in a series, but that the series is preceded by another series which introduces many of the main characters and sets the background, so perhaps I would have felt differently had I read The Sword, The Ring, and The Chalice trilogy. But I didn´t, and perhaps as a result, I ended up skipping nearly two thirds of the chapters when they switched to the POV and stories of characters I couldn´t care less about.
I didn't really get into this book I think it might have been because it was taken by some many different points of view. This is a style of writing I personally don't really like as it means that I don't connect with any character. So slightly disappointed with this book.
The mystical things aren't really my interest but I did enjoy this book. There were several words I didn't understand that were in italics (old words) and to my disappointment there were no definitions in the book.
It was alright for a cheap audiobook, the narrator was a bit too soft voiced for my liking, she didn't set the pace as well as hoped.
Terrific! Very romantic!
This is a really fantastic Fantasy novel.
Characters and writing were good though the plot was a bit disjointed as will sometimes happen at the start of a new trilogy. Do look forward to next book.
The book was a decent read, enough so that I went and got the second book.
Den mittleren Teil habe ich gerne gelesen aber das Ende lässt mich unzufrieden zurück. mehr unter ---> Www.kleiner-komet/die-traenen-des-
Reviewed for VOYA
I wanted more interaction between the two main characters. I found the story just'blah' Pity. It had potential.
I liked it, interesting characters and development
