Narrator : Kate Rudd
One thing the past few years brought to me were fantasy authors and I had forgotten how eagerly I was waiting for this instalment till I saw it in the available section when browsing for it. If you are a regular follower of this blog, you would know how many of the books I have reviewed here. I tend to list them all every time I review another only because they continue to tie together in the most sudden of ways and it is always good to have the other books in your arsenal to say ‘óoo’ at the right time when you identify that hidden thing. The three of this series that I reviewed are listed below (as always their cover pages link back to the reviews)
I would recommend reading the books in the following order:
- The Void of Muirwood(and other muir wood books for the best start)
- The Queen’s Poisoner(kingfountain series can also be read after the mirrowen series)
- The Thief’s Daughter
- The King’s Traitor
- The Maid’s War
- The Hollow Crown
- Kingfountain #5,#6
- Whispers of Mirrowen
This book deals with a lot of war time and political machinations. We left our two main protagonists in comparative peace and a whole new life awaiting both of them. Considering such a setup, this book had a lot to measuring up to do and personally I was not so vested in it as I was with all the others!
New relationships are formed and some broken, new revelations come to light but they did not shake me like the previous ones did only because the previous books were laying the groundwork for this exact moment.We are left at sort of stalemate at the end of the book with a lot of pending confrontations between the warring parties.
I would still recommend reading this since it has some information that may come in handy when I wade into the next book in July. If you are on the lookout for a new fantasy author to binge on, I highly recommend this author and you can take a look at all my reviews to figure whether these books might appeal to you too.
My last KU review was: The Burning Issue of the Day (Lady Hardcastle Mysteries #5) by T E Kinsey
and my queue now looks like this:
What do you think of my list? I started with the Melinda Leigh already.
