Lists with This Book. Godseaker 27, Lyndol Fast rated it it was amazing Shelves: Having read the Kingmaker series by her, my expectations were blown away by the experience this book gave.
It was very dark and detailed a descent into madness more than anything else. Broke convention for me. The second book read more like a her other novels and is Godpeaker.
The second book read more like a her other novels and is set in a much more traditional fantasy setting. Part two in and of itself would have warranted 3 stars from me but in light of what Tri,ogy 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 more depth given to the Tsung. Again, the third went back to a “Glen Cook” like feel, though it was not near as dark. 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! Jul 13, Eric Hung rated it liked it. 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 gidspeaker 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 This book brought me mixed feelings.
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 godsspeaker 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 godspsaker 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 trilohy set up godseaker 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.
Godspeaker – Wikipedia
Her godspeaked was simply unbearable, godspeakwr 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.
I just wanted it all to stop, and it rrilogy. 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. Dec 26, Claudia Putnam rated it did not like it Shelves: 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 fantasy can be good for. In the second book we move to a different land, and England-like land, with a Victoria-like queen, and then it beca I read this a while ago, looking for escape.
In the second book we move to a different land, and England-like land, with a Victoria-like queen, and then it became all this whispering and silliness and girliness. Sure, she’s a brave queen, much like Victoria was, but you know.
This is OUR world, with a religion much like ours. Also, guess what, it turns out that the good, gentle island people, who don’t even yodspeaker an army, are WHITE, and the desert, demon-possessed, blood-soaked people are mainly brown and black.
There were a couple of interesting moments, but all and in all the stories fail because Miller’s imagination fails. Jul 14, Hollie rated it liked it Shelves: One of a kind read, but I found myself losing interest as books continued I purchased this series all as one book. While it began strong, it faded fast. I found myself halfway through the series with little desire to continue forward.
I lost interest fast. I did, however, manage to finish this. It was long, and there was a lot of irrelevant information and details.
The Godspeaker Trilogy by Karen Miller
I enjoyed the original concept, and creativen One of a kind read, but I found myself losing interest as books continued I purchased this series all as one book.
It just seemed to go on and on I tired of the plot and characters before completing book 2.
I should have just stopped there. Nov 28, Stanislas Sodonon rated it liked it Shelves: Long time since I’ve “binged” God, I love that term! I came to this series totally by accident, reading the title of it’s first volume in a FB thread.
Having never heard of the author, I was intrigued godapeaker went to look for it. Luckily for me, I found the whole trilogy in Ebook format.
I 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 almos Long time since I’ve “binged” God, I love that term! But all acknowledge the skills of the author, and almost all the negative reviews I found were purely on the subject matter: I had to make my own mind, especially as this book trikogy up in the GrimDark circles.
So here is what I think. The first Chapter Uncompromising. Not even naming the characters. It was hard to get into, because experience has set so many expectations.
