you know, i forced myself through this series out of a sense of obligation to see how it played out. The last book started out well and suddenly petered out at the wrap up. And by the end I was SICK as @$%*! of the endless bickering of two of the main characters, one of which was the irrational main narrator of annoying italicized introductions who couldn't seem to emote her way out of a wet paper bag. GAHHH why did i buy these back in the 90s and why did i assume i should read them now?? I coul [...]
It's such a pity. The magic in these books is really cool, and obviously I've enjoyed the series enough to finish it. But it could have been so much better Once more, almost the entire book is filled with misunderstandings and conflicts between Tamrissa and Vallant. Of a very annoying kind, I might add. Facing the opposing blending is somewhat of a disappointment. The opposing blending refuses to blend, and, being honorable, the 'good' blending can't blend either. Really. How does someone come u [...]
The author's excessive use of ellipses is borderline infuriating. I often find myself mentally rewriting the close of each chapter to exclude them. (Happily, if you just take them completely out there isn't much to change and you still have the same effect.) Seriously, Green: NINE instances of elliptical usage in a two-page span? Let some other punctuation have a chance. There are lots of great ways to punctuate a novel. (There were 12 on two-thirds of a page. Now THAT was excessive.)Otherwise I [...]
when i was fifteen, i thought this series was the shit. the writing wasn't great, but hey, the sexy parts were good, so it didn't matter that the plot was like swiss cheese sliced superthin, right? looking back, the fact that the sexy parts *are* the best parts of these books is pretty telling. the premises of the plot and characters aren't bad, and there are some parts that are actually interesting, but overall the series is repetitive and predictable, and probably not worth the time it'd take [...]
I liked this series when I read it as a teenager, but it wasn't awe-inspiring even then. That probably tells you something. At that point in my life, the sex (omg it makes ther magik stronger lololol!) held my interest enough to read the whole series. These days, I probably wouldn't waste my time and would look for something else with more substance.
After skimming (more than reading) this thing, I came to one conclusion: life's too short to read bad books.
unimaginative ending to an unimaginative series.
I enjoyed the series and was even willing to reread the same scene from 5 different people view, which was really annoying as I was interested in the characters. However after battling on the ending was rather lacking in thought and wisdom which has been theme though out the books. After all their trails the final seated 5 do the very same thing to a huge group of people without any second thought. Disappointing.
I knew this book was poorly written going into it. Not only had I read it decades ago, but it's also the fifth in a series, and the shoddy writing was evident throughout. I won't bother to comment on the poor quality in general. Instead, I want to talk about the disturbing use of sexual violence in the book. Almost every female antagonist, both those working against our heroes and those working against the Five, is raped, and often gang raped, as part of various revenge schemes or part of a calc [...]
In the first book of Green's Blending series, we meet the characters who will embody the five magical elements: earth, air, water, fire and spirit. Every year, the society has a challenge and blendings come from all over the world to beat the Five currently on the throne. The problem with this group is that they are all new to their powers, to travel, to everything!They have to leave their homes, learn their power, AND learn to work together. It's amazing they succeed at anything. But they must, [...]
I thought this was a terrific ending to the series. I was anticipating the end of the noble 5, but not all that happened with the "5", or is that "6". I enjoyed it enough that I am looking forward to reading the next chapter in the story, the Blending Enthroned trilogy. I actually think the story was told much better in the later books, without so much repetition. The Prophesy wrapped up the story in an exciting way, and one I hadn't anticipated. I also want to comment that I love the style and [...]
Well most everything got settled in this book, which I'm happy with. Most plot points got resolved, some new little plot points were created for series number two, but I think I'm going to not read those ones just yet. Enjoyable for what it is, but there were definitely a few created conflicts that were annoying as anything. I know this is a fantasy, but some of the interpersonal relationships were rather unrealistic. Then again, I have to keep in mind what I'm reading. :)
I'm done, I've read them all! This final instalment of the Blending series was as fun to read as the previous ones:) Now I might consider reading "The Blending Enthroned", even though the reviews I've read so far are a bit disappoiting
Finally! We get to the end of this struggle. This series set off several interesting paranormal type dreams for me. I enjoy Ms. Green's simplistic underdog fighting "the man" theme. It's clear who is good and who is evil. Sometimes these are the more enjoyable reads.
Full review here:jamesgenrebooks/2While the first climax isn't very exciting, the real climax that follows is quite well done, setting up the follow up trilogy.
See comment on Book 1. Endings are bittersweet so I had to give the last book one less star . . . .
5th in ser, really good!
It's a great series, but it sure is a lot of books. I would like to see it in two compendiums.
soooooooo. the purpose of Naran becomes clear! Nice ending to the series.
