King's Wrath am Kindle As this is the final book of the Valisar trilogy, I have reread the two previous tomes before reading this one.King's Wrath is the weakest of the three. I enjoyed most of it but suddenly it feels like McIntosh had to rush to finish the story.Surely, the end is exactly like she had in her mind but it is not as well developed as the rest of the saga.McIntosh is able to create very likable or hateable characters and make us witness their trials, errors, moral dilemmas, moment of happiness or sorrow...When the time comes to finish the story, I had the impression that it I was reading something more akin to a list of historical facts than decision to be taken by the characters. I agree that all the decisions are logically linked to the rest of the story but the cascade of events felt a bit dry to me instead of a climax.Nonetheless, this is a great trilogy with a memorable world and some of the best characters to be met in fantasy books..

The best Ebook King's Wrath Great book in the usual tradition of McIntosh. However it seemed too much of a "answering" everything, maybe another book was needed to make it more of a story and less of an explanation. The wide and varied narrative of the previous two in the series set a precedent that the third book did not live up to.Having said that it was entertaining and I will be buying the next series but maybe downgrade it to a "wait for the paperback".

  3. A climatic end to the series All the surviving characters from the previous books are drawn together to see who will end up ruling the Empire Lots of loose ends tied up and a few surprises If you like magic and suspense combined then go and start at the beginning of this series or even to the first of 12 books by Fiona which are set in the same fantasy world.


  4. If you ve read the others and don t mind them then you will be okay with this one as it s of the same Same characters with annoyingly unclear motivations, falling in love with perfect strangers, making odd decisions just so that the plot can work out okay and characters can meet fortuitously , etc It just got boring by the end.The plot twists would have been good of it wasn t for the way the author tries to make you like unlikeable characters in a really awkward way, revealing inner goodness th [...]



  5. The first half of this book was a little heavy going, but after that I really enjoyed it This was a strong trilogy and I am looking forward to reading the other trilogy I have by Fiona McIntosh.


  6. 5 for the story3 for the editingWhoever edited this didn t do a good job As far as I could see there weren t any spelling or grammatical errors but there were inconsistencies For example, at one point Brighthelm was called Brighthelmstone, Queen Iselda was called Isadora, and Leo was called Loethar s half brother instead of nephew Bit confusing.The story was really good though and it leaves it open for another book However, I must admit I did find the ending a bit rushed as I would have liked to [...]


  7. In my experience of reading McIntosh s previous books, the endings have been fairly weak and anticlimactic If it wasn t for the fact that the first two and a half books of her trilogies are generally extremely good then she wouldn t be one of my favourite authors This series however, and particularly this book, was the exception The majority of the series was, while still well written, loose and unfocused But the ending was possibly the most exciting one that McIntosh has written.Unfortunately, [...]


  8. Completely unbelievable an ending Everything builds up then falls in patters, returning to solid ground Without missing of course, Fiona Mcintosh s notable traits of almost seeming worthless deaths Moreover, the incredible bounds of magic that interplay, though striking and awe inspiring, lead to the pointlessness of the magic existing in the first place I really dislike the mish mash excuse they often place in fantasy stories Where everything is because of a god or goddess decree It s played up [...]


  9. It was with some trepidation and apprehension that I approached the final instalment of the Valisar Trilogy In the year that has passed since I read the second book of the series, I managed to read the Percheron Trilogy, and found it lacking in the ending department.Much had happened already in last 2 books, and I was expecting another action filled story There was a sense of finality to this book all the players were known, they were all getting into position, showing their cards, all convergin [...]


  10. I am actually going to write about the whole series here, I figure if you got to this book then you have read the first two right Okay I suppose I should preface this review by saying that I am a huge fan of Fiona McIntosh s work except that Myrren s Gift series, I just cannot get into that series have tried 3 times now haha For years her Trinity series were my favourite books, I adored the Percheron series and now this series well The characters were great, I think the development and depth to [...]


  11. Ultimately this was an adequate final book in an okay series It s a shame as the 1st book was bursting with real potential Whilst the 2nd book plodded along and kind of dragged a little bit And finally, the 3rd book began very similar to the 2nd book, but gradually picked up speed until it felt like the final 3rd of the book was racing too fast, and finished too quickly.I felt that some of the characters personalities changed too radically throughout the books It would have been understandable f [...]


  12. I ll start this out with a positive despite not being too excited about the first 2 books in this series I kept reading because I wanted to find out what happened in the end, which is always a good thing There were interesting plot points and enough of them to keep me guessing and I hate leaving a series unfinished But I seriously considered just not bothering with this one The main problem with the series and most particularly with King s Wrath is that I just could not care about the characters [...]


  13. SPOILERS first of all i curse my childhood habit of makin sure to finish a novel no matter how boring or offencive i find it because this is the Most stupid piece of rubbish i have read in last couple of years d i have read some really rubbish stuff in name of fantasy in last 2 3 years having read around 250 fantasy novels in this period while the first part was enjoyable the 2nd nd 3rd part just shows the bankruptcy of the authorere is no coherency logic no underling theme i mean a 5 year adora [...]


  14. I m going to give an overall review for the series here So, spoiler alert most likely This was my first taste of Fionna s work and I have to say that I enjoyed I am a sap for characters I usually can always find one that I solidly love Fionna gave me several to love Some I came to hate and vice versa While reading Wrath, I kept wondering if she really did do what she says her writing method is No planning Just writing It felt planned and sometimes was easily predictable She has an ease of killin [...]


  15. Le dernier livre de la trilogie Valisar est de loin le meilleur Mais comme pour les deux autres, j ai pas mal de probl mes avec certaines parties de l histoire Bien que l histoire s enchaine norm ment bien, il y avait des passages o franchemet j en avait marre et parfois des sc nes qui taient tellement agacantes que j avais envie de fermer le livre et ne plus jamais y toucher par exemple les sc nes d insta love entre quasiement chaque personnage Je me suis attach e certains personnages notamment [...]


  16. I ve just got to say what an amazing author Fiona Mcintosh is Every single one of her books i have read in my life so far have been completely 100% brilliant Whilst reading this last book of the Valisar Trilogy in particular my mind finds it hard to comprehend how she can truly write something so amazing and complex in every way that it seems to have been created by a god.I may seem to be quite over exaggerating right now i know i am but i don t know how else to stress the fact the who ever hasn [...]


  17. One thing that stands out most to me after reading King s Wrath is the fact that McIntosh took one of our most beloved characters from the middle book in the series, Leo, and revealed him as very unlikable in the final book of the trilogy I absolutely loved it I really enjoy when a writer surprises me and Fiona certainly delivered with King s Wrath I really enjoyed the trilogy but thought she did a very nice job in the final book of not giving you quite the normal ending you usually get Absolute [...]


  18. What can I say This was a great trilogy Although, I must admit I didn t enjoy the final book as much as the previous two only because this was the conclusion of the story and the focus was on making all the pieces fall into place so it lacked the unpredictable chaos that I loved in the previous books.I do think I enjoyed the Percheron series because this ending was a bit too neat and didn t make me the emotional wreck that took days to recover from like Percheron did Nevertheless, I LOVED this [...]


  19. I absolutely LOVE this book, its ups and downs, its twist and turns, the whole lot absolutely amazing half way through the second book, i was sort of lost, didn know whether i d like where the book was heading, but half way through this book, i couldnt stop myself Love the De Vis brothers for their loyalty and sense of duty, love the outlaws and the barbarians I thought the book ended on a good note, although it was extrememly sad for Gav, but i liked it It was touching and emotionaloverall, 4.5 [...]


  20. Une fin de trilogie trop courte malgr un livre tr s pais, c est dire quel point j ai aim cette histoire Vraiment Fiona McIntosh sait nous tenir en all ne avec un r cit crit au cordeau Rien n ai laiss de c t , tout ce tient Elle a m me r ussit un brillant renversement de situation ou le m chant devient le gentil et inversement, et tout a se fait sans que l on se pose de questions Vraiment cette trilogie est extraordinaire et m me, mon avis, meilleure la premi re J attends avec impatience la proch [...]


  21. Continued with this series to see how it would wrap up Was it worth it I did not like the style of writing, found it to be very short and clipped It was one of these trilogies that I felt a relief when I finished rather than hoping the series would never end It jumped from one point of view to another way too quickly, not really letting you know and care about one character than any other.


  22. OMG I knew the 3rd book in the Valisar trilogy would be good, because I loved the pace and intricacy of the others, but this epic power struggle was mind blowing.Friends turned to enemies, new alliances were formed and I was on the edge of my seat during the final battle This was a fast paced tale during which the characters developed so much that I couldn t help like some I d previously hated It was epic


  23. Overall the series were fun There were mysteries, action and interesting characters although there were all a bit too likable However, this last book was very predictable and started to annoy me halfway through All the storylines were wrapped up in a real convenient way and it became unbelieveble and boring.


  24. Last of the Valisar Trilogy I must say, i love Fiona s books However, i was a bit disappointed with the ending and how rushed it was The beginning was good and full of anticipation But the further you read the events keep pilling up then suddenly conclude in a single or two at most chapters In any case, it s a good read and others may like the ending


  25. This series was excellent Fast paced storyline with so many secrets lies As a reader your perception was constantly challenged I did feel this book came absolutley flying to its completion but most of the storylines were sorted out with room left for a continuing saga at a later time I love Fiona McIntosh s writing style and this series was great


  26. A bit of a disappointing ending to what was an enjoyable series The big secret of the Valisar magic was resolved in a trite way and a bit too much with the coupling up of the characters I still liked the series, but just wish the ending had been a bit sophisticated.


  27. An well laid out book, as usual Fiona McIntosh delivers another book well worth the read However unlike the previous books in this trilogy, King s Wrath is slightly lacking in plot The pace of the book seemes somewhat rushed and the ending could have been improved on.


  28. My comment is about series the ages of pevin not consisted Reuth clovis wife readmerging in story dies not add up her and clovis cannot have viisited pivehn at 10 year mark and still have lived at vested villiage for two years afters death and still be there
