review 1: I gave this book four stars because I was completely absorbed by it from beginning to end. But looking back, I feel like this book was more of a warmup than a self-contained story. I know there will be another book in this series coming out next year, but I wanted to see a lot mo...

review 1: This is my favorite book EVER! I've read it at least seven times now, and I keep hoping that the author will write a sequel. It has everything that I could possibly want in a story: magic, flying, dragons, defiant heroines, love, loss, war, and all in only 388 pages! The only thi...

review 1: I had been putting off reading this for a very long time. Don't get me wrong, I love fantasy and epic mythical animals but something about this book just didn't do it for me. Maybe its because of how easily Kes was able to use her magic? How it was not very aweinspiring? Maybe be...

review 1: At 100 pages in, I still didn't know who the main character(s) were, or what the plot was. This is pretty unusual. I thought for sure this must be part of a series, and that was way there wasn't a plot yet. But no. The main characters were not the drivers of the plot, they w...

review 1: We pretty much abandon our original characters and county as the action moves to Casmantium and the geas-bound slave Gereint and the engineer/philospher/mage Lady Tehre. There aren't as many griffins but they (and Lord Bertaud) show up at the end. Neumeier seems to excel at prese...
The City in the Lake (2008)
language
English

review 1: Beautiful prose, reminiscent of McKillip but more grounded in the everyday; some genuinely disturbing fairytale moments; an interesting plot that more or less coheres. The two great problems with this book are (a) its villain, who is evil and manipulative because she is evil and...

review 1: Griffins have come to Feierabiand, bringing the desert with them. But these fierce creatures are in need of a healer, and when Kes agrees to go with them she little suspects the turns her life will take. For the rest of the country, however, the griffins are a frightening invasio...

review 1: The author said this book was a fairy tale, and I am willing to let the description lie. The main characters shine like bright lights against the misty backdrop of the world. Neumeier only reveals as much of the world as we need to understand in order to follow the story, and n...

review 1: I was stuck mentally on the stars here between 3 and 4, but decided to go to 4 because I did enjoy the book and it did go a ways to explain the origins of the central conflict of the series.This book is primarily from the perspective of yet more new characters and a new location ...
