Description

The author thinks that by changing a letter or two in the names of places and rituals he has come with something new and fresh. With a book so massive which features a cast so big, it was perhaps no surprise that the first quarter of Mage's Blood is the most demanding of the reader. INTRODUCTION: "Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade. So, long story short, if you're looking for something totally new, Mage's Blood won't be the book you're looking for, but if you like familiar tropes, characters and places that are done really well in addition to a solid plot with interesting twists, then I can recommend this book whole-heartedly. Sybele is just devoted to destroying Meiros (and so for the most part of the book, you might actually think that the godmother of all evil is the Sainted Mater-Empress Lucia).

There were parts I enjoyed, but many parts I didn't, and by the end I just wanted to be done with it.I hate Kazim with a vengence and thought she was a moron for betraying Meiros, but I find it interesting that her entire character arc hinges on her controlling her passion for Kazim. This offer means that not only will Ramita be forced to leave everything she's ever known, but she'll have to do it alone. The nation of Yuros has been plagued with civil war but is still considered the stronger of the two nations due to the fact that they caused significant damage during the previous campaigns. The Rimoni have all italian names, grow wine and olives and where the predominant empire, before the mages were created, just as the Romans. The ambiguity of various plans and desires, all with their own rationale and justifications, give the main impetus to the tale and (after the slow start) will likely keep you enthralled.

When was the last time I read a starting entry of a series that strives so far for that true ‘epic’ feel, let alone one that succeeds? Elena is a solid character who is not only ruthless, filled with fury and an excellent assassin and fighter, but also very set in her ways.

Things I didn’t like include the fact that virtually every religious person is either a religious fanatic, flecking spittle of their lips and unable to behave rationally because of the inherent hatred and vile or a cynical manipulator. Is it to make them seem more villainous, which would then imply that female sexuality is bad and is something to be controlled. Not exactly looking forward to the next book if this was my boyfriend's definition of "not that bad. Conversely, the majority of the characters living in Antiopia were just simple people looking to be left alone. In the meantime, the hardships due to the Crusade led to a revolt in a southern province of the Empire, Noros, which while defeated is still shrouded in some mystery today and now in 927, one year before the next opening of the bridge, the Empire prepares the "Crusade to end all crusades", while the Antiopians have declares holy shihad to defeat the invaders.
