READ Deathcaster

He forces aligned against the Seven Realms as well as the enemies within the castleTHE DEADLY COST OF PEACEMaster storyteller Cinda Williams Chima delivers spellbinding action bittersweet reunions and dazzling revelations in this indispensable conclusion to the Shattered Realms seri. Deathcaster is nothing if not ambitious Eight POV characters mysteries than the Hardy Boys can solve several pairs of star crossed lovers and an epic sprawling world full of various magics and prejudices In this four book series a full two and a half books were just setup So the fact that this book is even remotely coherent is worth lauding let alone that it had some really good and satisfying momentsBefore I get into the nitty gritty it s worth noting that I m grading on a curve Cinda Chima is one of my all time favorite authors and this is my favorite world of hers and I would still recommend any book of hers over 90% of what s out thereWith that said deep breath this book is unfortunately too ambitious There are too many characters and too much plot for one book and it never uite takes off the way it shouldThere are so many POVs that the jumps between them get immensely frustrating A good book should of course make you lament any jump in POV But the problem here is that I ll just be getting into a storyline and then see a new POV when a chapter ends Then there s so many characters to cycle through that it s 100 pages before we return to the story I was invested in and by then I m a little fuzzy on all of it and my passion s cooled This book is the literary euivalent of constant blue balls forever sucking you into a story never staying long enough for payoffOne of Chima s fortes is writing war councils a room with lots of people arguing over strategy and politics But those war councils comprise at least half the book and they grew wholly wearisome after a while There were three or four armies chasing each other across a continent and it all became the same after a while characters looking at maps in small groups talking about deepwater ports and Spiritgate and Watergate and which direction to march in It s the same problem as history class when wars are diluted to the story of which army marched where it no longer holds interestAs a matter of fact the first two thirds of Deathcaster 400 pages or so were devoid of the very things that drew me to Chima s writing I m here for the backstabby politics of court which are in short supply when everyone s on the march with an army I m here for the swoonworthy romance but all three power couples spend the book with a continent between themEventually it got to the point where I only cared about three of the myriad POVs Destin and Lila who were together in the only interesting storyline and Evan Strangward whom I cared about mostly for Destin s sake Make no mistake those POVs were riveting and I wanted to do a little dance every time I got to their chapters The intrigue The drama The happily familiar and eternally contentious world of Fellsmarch All the interesting side characters gathered together And a romance to die for It felt like their chapters were a reward for slogging through the restThat said the rest of them got on my last nerve Lyss hangs out with Jenna is afraid of Celestine then marches with an army through the Realms Hal marches through the Realms conuering as he goes and fretting about things Ash is forever chasing someone he loves around the world Breon is mercifully voiceless thank the Maker for small miracles And Jenna leads everyone in lessons of How to Train Your Dragon because dragons fix so many story problems And the whole time I couldn t help wondering what Destin and Lila were up toTalk of romance I m uite displeased at how it all shook out view spoiler The two somewhat bland straight couples each get a good and proper sex scene Jenna and Ash have a particularly ludicrous one where Ash is concerned with matters of life and death while Jenna tries to ignore or distract him with cuddling Sexy times are well and good but this girl needs to sort out her priorities Meanwhile the most interesting romance Destin and Evan s is relegated to two kisses in the heat of battle Not cool hide spoiler



Y lead to her death and her death would end the Gray Wolf LineANCIENT DANGERIn Lyss’s absence Fellsmarch Castle swarms with intrigue deception and a primordial threat Destin Karn a Southern spymaster with a hidden agenda of his own might be the ueendom’s only hope of defeating t. After some consideration I unfortunately had to drop this down to 4 stars That doesn t mean I loved it any less It just wasn t uite sitting right with me that I ignored some issues I had After so long this series has come to an end I ve been invested in the world of the Realms for years and it s crazy to be letting it go I ve fallen in love with two generations of characters and been mesmerized by the scale of politics and intrigue and magic These novels have truly never received the appreciation they deserve Admittedly I came to love The Shattered Realms slightly than its predecessor series But one would not be the same without the other As a finale I really thought this book delivered but not to the extent I was hoping for I was still on the edge of my seat the whole time and was so relieved these characters all got their ending but in a few ways it just didn t uite get there So many reunions happened that I d been waiting for and I was so so thrilled about that Plus all the bombshells and close calls really kept everything moving The drawbacks had to do with the ending I feel that given how high the stakes were made out to be and how many novels had been crafted to set up all the problems I didn t uite get all the fleshing out I was hoping for The accumulation of everything and this is mainly regarding Celestine and the Mage marked but applies to several other things felt rushed I was hoping for answers and depth especially for who turned out to be essentially the series main villain With all the terror I ended up wanting But I suppose we can t always have everything That said I still adore this world with all my heart and plan to return to it someday Just because something isn t perfect doesn t have to take away from the enjoyment of it

    As much as I wanted to love this book I didnt I thought it was a good book but I don't feel it like it measures up to the other books in this series The reunion between ash and Jenna was amazing but that was all we saw from them that stood out and as someone who loved the dynamic between ash and Jenna I felt that after the reunion their relationship fell flat and I get the feeling that they were pushed a bit to the sidel

    Not Chima’s best The Seven Realms and Shattered Realms cobbled big shoes for Deathcaster to fill but Chima falls short for one of the first times in resolving itThe world building remains fantastic; readers are brought t

    Really 25 stars I think this one was my least favorite of the series and I really did not like the second bookI’m not entirely sure if it’s because it’s been a year since I read the last one or if the last one was just so mind blowingly good that this one could never hope to compare but this one just fell far short of all my expectation
