Storms and massacres
Arram. Varice. Ozorne. The first book of the Numair Chronicles contains three sorcerers who are tied by destiny.... destiny for difficulties. Draper is on his way to becoming one of the most mighty magicians in the world. As the youngest pupil in his form at Imperial University of Carthak, he has a gift with infinite size - and for drawing dangers.
Varice, a smart little woman with an often ignored gift, and Ozorne, the "remaining prince" with clandestine ambition. As Ozorne approaches the enthrone and Varice approaches Arram's core, Arram realises that one of these days - soon - he will have to make a decision as to where his loyalty really lies. The Numair chronics reward the reader with an unprecedented account of how Numair Salmalín came to Tortall.
New arrivals will find an memorable imaginary quest in which the destiny of a realm lies on the back of a gifted young man who knows how to make evil foes. Your heroine cuts a bow through the imaginary realm with humor, power and intellect. and we' re all runnin' to keep up.
Storms and Slaughter (The Numair Chronicles, Book One) eBook
It was the book I really wanted to like. I' ve waited for the whole book to like it and thought, "Okay, let's get down to it." All of this is like a prolog to the real history. I don't mean a prolog to Wild Magic and grown-up Numair, but a prolog to Numair's own history, because not much happens in this book.
What we actually are learning and how many personalities are actually going to be created, this book could have been compressed into 100 pages, and then already leapt into the more interesting act of pausing between Arram and Ozorne, Arram's escape from Carthak, and his search to settle in Tortall.
He has Arram sailing through the misery, all his ministers take good charge of him, some of his buddies defend him, and no true personality development on his part. This comprehensive book is not really endangered and not really threatened. And I couldn't even tell you what the highlight of the book is..... because a highlight usually demands a heightened excitement.
That was missing from this book. It' predicted a million things for the next book, but I don't want to feel like it was just a taser for the next book. That' not a lousy book, but I'd be waiting for the next one to come out to buy it, so maybe you can just reread it and (hopefully) incorporate some of the characters developments in its continuation.
I' ve really enjoyed having a clever, able woman figure who is so different from the other tortals. What I thought was that the tale showed that a woman can be coquettish and enchanting, yet clever and determined.
