The Banished Lands are engulfed in war and chaos. The cunning Queen Rhin has conquered the west and High King Nathair has the cauldron, most powerful of the seven treasures. At his back stands the scheming Calidus and a warband of the Kadoshim, dread demons of the Otherworld. They plan to bring Asroth and his host of the Fallen into the world of flesh, but to do so they need the seven treasures. Nathair has been deceived but now he knows the truth. He has choices to make, choices that will determine the fate of the Banished Lands. Elsewhere the flame of resistance is growing - Queen Edana finds allies in the swamps of Ardan. Maquin is loose in Tenebral, hunted by Lykos and his corsairs. Here he will witness the birth of a rebellion in Nathair's own realm. Corban has been swept along by the tide of war. He has suffered, lost loved ones, sought only safety from the darkness. But he will run no more. He has seen the face of evil and he has set his will to fight it. The question is, how? With a disparate band gathered about him - his family, friends, giants, fanatical warriors, an angel and a talking crow he begins the journey to Drassil, the fabled fortress hidden deep in the heart of Forn Forest. For in Drassil lies the spear of Skald, one of the seven treasures, and here it is prophesied that the Bright Star will stand against the Black Sun.… (mehr)

This series keeps getting better. It was an emotional book, but I was honestly expecting it to be worse. There were some really great moments and not as much action like in the last book, and because of that I liked this one more. There is a really big reveal towards the end that I didn’t see coming and that puts the events so far in a very different light, and it will be interesting to see what happens in the next one. The cliffhanger at the end is also something that makes my fingers itch to pick up Wrath right away because I really want to know what happens next and how this will all end. ( )

I had read the first 2 books in print but had struggled with it a bit. So I thought I'd try the audio instead for the 3rd book - I got on MUCH better with the audio. There are still a lot of viewpoints but they were easier to keep straight in the audio. And something is being done right because there are 3 characters for whom I was desperately worried in this book. When my emotions were on the "no, no , please don't kill them off" when I was on their chapters. They are Camlin, Maquis and Veradis. These three characters have managed to grab hold of me. There is a terrible twist near the end - which I did not see coming. So in summary, the audio made the difference for me in this series. ( )

Mr. John Gwynne, how dare you break my heart?

I am not going to talk about the plot or the characters because I don't want to spoil anyone who has not yet started this series.

I recommend The Faithful and the Fallen to everyone who likes a good prophecy, a god-war, angels and fallen angels, and of course an epic conflict.

However, I'm not as in love with this series as others. I found that all books thus far suffer from a slow start, a dull middle and only pick up the pace in the last hundred or so pages. The characters are well developed, but the female ones feel as if they're just there so the book isn't nothing but spitting, manly, hunky men.

The plot took an unexpected turn in this book, so I'm curious to see how it all ends. Bring on Wrath! ( )

Oh my god! NOOOOOOO!!!! F@#^$%@@#$!!!! ((falls to knees in tears)) T___T

So, this book was absolutely fantastic. So much heart-pounding action that had me actually terrified, angry, and happy. The story-telling/writing was absolutely amazing. Everything flowed really well and kept me hooked right from the get go. There were no slow moments AT ALL. Every scene had its purpose and added another piece to the over all tale. If I had to pick one thing that I didn't like, it would have to be that it is still hard to tell how much time has passed, though that was such an incredibly minor thing.

The characters continue to inspire such a wide range of emotions in this story. There are some, like the Jotun giants and Jael and Lykos (among others) that just made me so incredibly angry that I found myself gritting my teeth. Others, like Camlin and Corban and Maquin that made me fear for them and root for them in their fights. There is just an overwhelming amount to say about the individual characters that I could write a thesis on them.

Speaking of emotions, holy heart break, Batman! The battle between Asroth and Elyon and their respective sides is rapidly approaching the pinnacle of the whole thing. There was just so much back-stabbing betrayal and heart-breaking deaths this time around that the only thing keeping me from literally crying is the fact that I was at work while reading most of it. While all of the Elyon-side deaths hurt me, the one that hurt the most is the one that happened at the very very end. Reading the very last two sentences broke my heart the most.

All that being said, this right here is what a high fantasy book should be. It has literally everything that makes a good book. If you are looking for action, adventure, romance, friendship, betrayal, loss, and love, this series right here is for you. ( )
