If You Are Into Palace Intrigue Spies you are into Palace intrigue spies the brutal underbelly of a city then this is for you There are still battles yet they take on a personal edge as our heroes are at the forefront of mostI was entertained despite a lot of truncated scenes This Bam Boof we are done and everything is resolved so let s move on type of writing leaves much to be desired Like poignancy s ift to a well developed story line Did I care about Fray Munroe or Goraxx Not really As main characters they never developed to the point where their loss might affect your ability to buy the next in the series They were just average in development and shallow in depth Even Choss whom was the pivot point for most of the action was not to be missed should he catch a fatal steel bolt through an eyeLack of character development when there is plenty of movement usually spells disaster for most novels as there really is no excuse to not imbibe them with depth Sacrificing characterization for the sake of raw entertainment renders the story line mundane Mathew Riley s novels encompass the same ideals and always leave you a little emptyLet us hope that Chaosmage pumps the brakes a bit and allows for depth to be built A different book and style compared to the 1st Has of a murder mystery than larger battle scenes like the 1st Enjoyed singular characters however just didnt event the wheel Still enjoyed it I loved this book even than Battlemage book 1Aryan really knows how to write a ood battle scenewhether its a Huge Battle In The Middle battle in the middle a war like in Battlemageor smaller hand to hand street fights like in this oneI was lad to see some characters from Battlemage make an appearanceand again the author managed to add characters that I liked and wanted to root for This story had a intimate feel because it takes place mainly in the city where its own criminal underworld has a significant role to play which happens to be a favourite plot of mine While there is plenty of actionits smaller in scale There is a magical murder mystery to solve an assassination plot to be foiled and a civil war between different criminal families to be averted So this story focuses on intrigue and mystery than on straight up battle scenesAgain the pacing was Pedal Control: Achieving Speed, Control, Power, and Endurance for the Feet greatthe world building is becoming expansive as we learn about the different peoples inhabiting this world and the action is exciting and well done As I mentioned earlierI just like Aryan s characters I think he balances them well andives them plenty of depth and diversityAlso each of these books can be read as standalones if you are not in the mood for a series PersonallyI am really enjoying my back to back reading of them and I m looking forward to starting Chaosmage tomorrow The last book was all about war while this one have spies cops and criminalsByrne and Fray are uardians who are investigating horrible murders I liked them and their hunt for the killerChoss is trying to find what happened at a recent fight and that brings us the underworld I was not that keen on Choss or his investigations The best part was when Butcher showed upA character from book 1 is hanging about and I so wanted about him but alasKatja is a spy who is sent to inf. The people of Perizzi have survived the battlemage war but their future is looking darker than everBYRNE is a member of the Watch investigating a series of murders in which the corpse was drained entirely of life FRAY's expertise with magic is nee.
Stephen Aryan Ê 4 SummaryEs and soon the violence will spill
into the streets unless someone steps up to do something about it In the shadows powerful forcesthe streets unless someone steps up TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT IN do something about it In shadows powerful forces playing a different ame and an undercover agent named Katja in town spying for her foreign ueen A roup of dissidents have been plotting against the monarch and Katja must infiltrate their ranks and disrupt their bloodthirsty plans before they can come to fruitionLike I said compared to the first book Bloodmage takes the story in a very different direction and with the exception of a few returning faces from Battlemage who play very minor roles in this one this seuel also stars a whole new cast of characters If you re wondering if this makes it possible to read Bloodmage on its own as a standalone the answer is yes In fact this is the second epic fantasy seuel I ve read this year that follows this trend and I am hoping it will continue this makes the books so much accessible and removes the barrier for new readers who might want to jump right in if the description of Bloodmage piues your interestIn essence this book reads and feels much like a murder mystery so that the tone and style is pretty far removed from Battlemage The scope of the story is not as vast and there are far less sweeping battles
Instead almost all of the clashes in this book are carried out on a local scale and theyalmost all of the clashes in this book are carried out on a local scale and they personal Depending on the type of story you were expecting this can either be a positive or negative thing I feel we et to know the characters on a deeper level in this book but we do lose the some of the epicness of the setting and conflicts that I love so much in Battlemage Since it takes time for a mystery to unravel and other conspiracies to play out the pacing of Bloodmage also feels Italian Riviera gradual and controlled so that if you liked the powerful momentum of Battlemage you might find the seuel slower and subdued in comparisonPersonally I might have preferred the energy of the first book because I can t help but be drawn to fast paced action On the other hand I also love aood mystery on occasion so Bloodmage also appealed to me in this sense Ultimately which book works better for you will come down to a matter of taste but I must also add that this is worth reading if you enjoyed the first book since here you will A Beach Party with Alexis get to experience the fallout from its ending Characters in Bloodmage still speak of the final showdown between Balfruss and the warlock in hushed whispers of awe transforming the events of the first book into something like legend And even though the returning characters from Battlemage appear or are mentioned only briefly it was still interesting to catch up with some of them and see what they re up to now especially Talandra and VargusI m also happy with my experience with the audiobook I ve heardood things about narrator Matt Addis from his performance for the audio edition of Battlemage and he has taken up the role again for the seuel He does a Anak Bajang Menggiring Angin great job with his tones and inflections helping distinguish different speakers which is very helpful in a story with a relatively big castNow I m extremely curious to see what the final installment of the trilogy will bring Will book three Chaosmage be another standalone type story Will it tie everything together drawing from both Battlemage and Bloodmage What tone will it take and what kind of surprises will it have in store I m definitely looking forward to finding ou. Nd attempting to prevent a massacre that will topple two dynasties and destroy the fragile peace in the city for ever Watchmen and spies assassins and criminals will clash on the streets in this magic fuelled adventure from the author of Battlemag.
