Review Son of Avonar The Bridge of D'Arnath #1

Ear extinctionBut Seri a Leiran noblewoman living in exile is no stranger to defying the unjust laws of her land She. This is the first Carol Berg book I ve read but after finishing this last night I know it won t be the last First I have to finish this uartetThe Lady Seriana has exiled herself from all she knows and all she is accustomed to though with good reason and no hesitation Her husband Karon was brutally tortured and murdered for being a sorceror and all their friends too The only reason she was not also burnt at the stake was because her brother Tomas the best friend and Champion of King Evard has done that much for her He did however murder her new born baby After all this tragedy getting as far away from the city is the least she can manage After ten years spent uietly at a cottage in the country eating what she can grow wearing the same clothes every day her peaceful existence is shattered by the appearance of a man naked and injured mute and without memory running from the King s lieutenant Darzid and the soulless Zhid who come from another worldGrudgingly she helps him discovering enough to make her sure he is not a horse thief and soon steps over the line from helping him to get rid of him to activily choosing to assist him determined that this man would not go the same way as Karon But what she learns about the man s origins opens up a whole new sleigh of uestions and creates in her a cruel hope Son of Avonar is told from Seri s perspective and jumps back and forth in time as she tells the story of her past and what happened to Karon whose fate we learn early on and the present day and her journey with the stranger This is the perfect way to tell this story and I don t think a linear narrative would have worked at all It s also very important to know about Seri s past in understanding her present She s a strong intelligent woman who uses her skill with words where others use brute force I loved that in Jennifer Fallon s Second Sons Trilogy and it s used well here tooThe world Berg has created here is very real It s also very cruel but that too is a part of the story I had the same feeling of tension I felt while reading Outlander caused by the knowledge that awful things do happen to these people that friends are enemies and love can be split asunder It s not that the plot is complicated it s not though it is original and extremely well dished out but the characters are what drive the story There s rather a lot of detail again like Gabaldon it makes me impatient especially towards the end However it s rarely superfluous so I couldn t skip any or I would lose the plot My main uibble is that in telling the story of Seri s past and how she met and came to love Karon and their short marriage before he is discovered I would have liked evidence It s not that I doubt their love I just wanted to feel it I think that in the next two books I will get that but since so much hinges on the relationship between Seri and Karon I think taking the time to really explore the depths of their love for each other rather than sort of skim over it or tell us it is so would have made this a truly satisfying read

This book made me weep as I have never weep in all 16 years of my existence For yet another time I realized what a great talent and a pen could do to twist and weave words until they become as painful and as vivid as reality itself This book is soo good i want to yell HALLELUIAH everytime it s mentioned The Son of Avonar was the reason why I was still awake at dawn my eyes red and puffy and mountains of used tissue paper lay on the side of my bed Never have I read greater love and loss than the story of our heroine Maybe I have but Carol Berg bless her mind have a great skill in making the readers walk through a painful torture and still ache and long for the nextMy God this is one talented author From the first page until the last I was bewitched and so enchanted I could barely look up from my ebook reader I would sing praises about this book forever if the author asks me too I have felt nothing but sorrow and anticipation as I scroll down a page to the next Ms Carol Berg is one of the rare authors I know that can work time shifts between the past and the present so well that I was as thrilled to read about the past as I am to know about the present I never liked time shifts I don t care much about the past and what author would really think that it s as exciting as the present This book proved me wrong Just as I was getting so into the past the present takes in and I m again hooked I was like a fish being dangled into two hooks You don t just have to read it you want to read it They are both so interestingThe hero was my God a real hero Is it so bad to want him for myself And the heroine no matter how much I envision myself in the heroes arm they just fit each other At the end of the book I just want to get inside the story and chain them to each other forever Oh such love Reality thou art a cruel unfair bitch Where do you suppose I can get a man like thatThe Son of Avonar is the true definition of an Epic Fantasy and I thank Carol Berg for making me weep buckets of tears and shredding my heart into pieces like no one and nothing have ever before
