The Godspeaker Trilogy

Yet as Ethrea comes ever closer to civil war a greater danger awaits Hekat still desires the world and power is no longer a dreamThis omnibus edition of THE GODSPEAKER TRILOGY includes Empress The Riven Kingdom and The Hammer of God. Long time since I ve binged God I love that term a whole trilogyI came to this series totally by accident reading the title of it s first volume in a FB threadHaving never heard of the author I was intrigued and went to look for it Luckily for me I found the whole trilogy in Ebook formatI read a few review first just to get a feel for it and I was puzzled at the mixed reactions Some love it to pieces some hate it to shreds But all acknowledge the skills of the author and almost all the negative reviews I found were purely on the subject matter writing about the bad guysI had to make my own mind especially as this book came up in the GrimDark circlesSo here is what I thinkThe first ChapterUncompromising Brutal Uncaring Aloof Not even naming the charactersIt was hard to get into because experience has set so many expectationsBut once I got past the discomfort I was sucked inA very good tone setter for the whole atmosphere of the bookThe GoodHekatMy girl Tcha The God sees her in his admiring eyeWhat a character Such forcefulness A pleasure to read Mijak is a hard place A place ruled by death and fear terror so ingrained into its denizens that it is not even uestioned any Softness is weakness The God is everywhere Some people complained about the excessive use of God this and God that They ve obviously never lived in authoritarian cultures I have and it made absolute sense When God is not a concept but a manifest presence in everyday life When God rules all aspects of the society then it s obvious that even the daily semantics will have theology imbued into themThe moral conflicts are so beautifully crafted throughout the seriesI think I enjoyed the Mijak volume the most It was the most surprising and fresh part of the seriesThe BadRhianI couldn t stand the girl She spent the whole series walking on a carpet of Deus Ex Machina all the way to the final momentsShe was overhyped and underperforming She felt like a badly written pamphlet against misogyny with very little to back the argument up but talk of birth right When I compare her to Hekat she is but a pale annoying small thing that got everything handed to her on a silver platter but still kept yapping about as if she d done anything but being carried from scene to scene UrkTo be honest I didn t click with any of the Ethrea characters They felt tasteless spinelessZandakar was just a wasted character a wasted opportunityview spoilerI just couldn t reconcile his background and education with his meek behaviour in Ethrea It felt too convenient hide spoiler

Summary The Godspeaker Trilogy

Daughter Princess Rhian is ready to rule but if her enemies have their way the crown of Ethrea will never be worn by a womanDexterity Jones is a toymaker To protect Rhian and his country he must place his trust in an exile from Mijak. This book brought me mixed feelings I had originally selected this trilogy to do for an essay of mine petitioning to my teacher to allow me the opportunity instead of picking from the list of books that the school had provided It was a challenge that I undertook and it yielded great results in terms of a paper However for the book itself I must say I was not thrilled to continue reading through it If not for my paper I may have dropped it somewhere through the second book in the trilogy The first book was dark and gritty which I enjoyed until I realized that at some point I came to despise the main character At first I had felt pity for Hekat but as the story went on her actions and thoughts made me want to rip things apart By the end I was certainly at the point of wanting to burn the book However in retrospect a book that is able to instill such emotions in me is either extremely well written or the opposite Perhaps that is what Karen Miller intended If so I applaud her She was able to set up an antagonist that I was able to hate so much that I wished to stop reading However despite this brilliance the second book introduced what was supposedly supposed to be the good protagonist Ultimately it was not Hekat who made me want to drop the series but Rhian Her character was simply unbearable and I simply could not figure out why she existed Her foolishness frustrated me and it did not improve By the third book I was simply waiting for everything to end No expectations Nothing I just wanted it all to stop and it did I will not say that this was a terrible series In terms of fantasy elements it was well written Lands of rituals religion and supernatural intrigue What simply fell short was the development of the characters and story For those who wish for something different to read I would still recommend it However consider yourself warned It is not for the faint of heart nor is it for those who are critical in their selections of fantasy stories

Sold into slavery Hekat dreams of power Fate leads her to the warlord Raklion and she begins turning dreams into reality For the nameless god of Mijak is with her and it promises her the worldFar away the King of Ethrea is dying His. Wow 45 As I read the three in one version this book looked like uite a bite back when I started it Having read the Kingmaker series by her my expectations were blown away by the experience this book gaveThe first part of the trilogy focuses on Mijak and readfelt much like Steven Erikson or Glen Cook than Miller s first books It was very dark and detailed a descent into madness than anything else Broke convention for meThe second book read like a her other novels and is set in a much traditional fantasy setting Part two in and of itself would have warranted 3 stars from me but in light of what I had come through in the first it was refreshing Overall part two felt predictable and less outside the box The third was interesting a great mix of the two with much depth given to the Tsung Again the third went back to a Glen Cook like feel though it was not near as darkI believe that I got the epicgrim fantasy feel partially from the tone but much from the world feel Mijak and Tsung are much not usual settingscountries for fantasy literature which is the first distinguishing step the book takes Secondly magic is never really explained just a natural fact of the world while the plot is pushed by the characters I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did I was very pleasantly surprised

    I read this a while ago looking for escape There used to be good fantasy out there you could find; what happened? The first book wasn't too bad Hekat as a damaged beyond repair psychotic girl who claws her way from slavery to Empress was kind of an interesting concept Joan D'Arc Hitler Stalin take your pick This type of speculation is what fa

    The first book was ok The main character of the first book Hekat was not likeable so that diminished my enjoyment of it The second book was pretty good until about 34 of the way though At that point the arguments the characters were having got old fast and my enjoyment was diminishedThe third book was not good I can sum it up for you here Argument number 1 Zandakar is not trustworthOh yes he isArgument number 2 Here is myour opinionsI don

    This was a huge disappointment to me so huge that I gave up on fantasy for a while As a long life fantasy reader who used to sneak Mercedes lackey and robin McKinley books into middle school and place them in my textbooks to read during class

    I would highly suggest reading the trilogy as a whole rather than one book at a time with books in between The world building between the books is fantastic The cultures of the various regions are very developed and thought through I uite appreciate that work as it made the characters that live by those cultures
