It did not feel like a middle book to me.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Stormlord Rising does suffer from the middle book in a trilogy syndrome though. I really don’t think I’ll be reading the next book in the series though. Can anyone clarify please??? I was still engrossed throughout, but it could have been better. Additional information Publisher Orbit. Indeed, the author also seems to have slightly given up on her tendency to feature every plot twist fifty pages ahead, settling mostly for about ten or five in this volume.
Aug 20, Pauline Ross rated it really liked it Shelves: The characters drive the story – all the world building is shown through the characters and not explained in lumps of exposition. The characters continue to be interesting and sometimes to behave in unexpected ways.
It would have been difficult, but she would have done it regardless. They leave him alive, however, because of something he said that made them believed he is the reincarnation of Uthardim, a mythical hero in their culture. This i Im not much for longwinded series, and this second installment continues the longwindedness that “Watergivers 1” set up. I particularly liked the thought tossed out, almost as an aside, that the innate water-sensing ability is god-given and not magical at all, while the power of water painting is sorcery and therefore totally evil.
Heart breaking but so much more realistic. And Taquar is still around, and will undoubtedly come into play again very soon.
Sep 18, Doug rated it really liked it. A great to sequel to an a really good book. This makes for a much more realistic type of magic if there is such a thing, of course.
Ravard is especially interesting. Oh he protested at first, but a pretty face and a bit of transparent flattery and he’s on his back. Events usually slow down in the second book of a trilogy, but Larke managed to keep the pace, even improve it.
In this one she turns into a Reduner whore and tries he best to hide who she really is. It felt to me that there was a little bit too much going on, Very s It took me forever to get into this story, it really dragged for me until the last about pages when I got caught up in the story. It is a long book but it never flags and in fact the last part is totally gripping as it rushes towards the finale. The book ends with the immediate crisis resolved, but the big long-term problem the shortage of stormlords to provide water is still hanging by a thread, and everything is now in place for the final showdown.
There’s no hint of remorse. And a couple of story lines really stood out.
Stormlord Rising (Watergivers, book 2) by Glenda Larke
Ravard is an interesting new character, though most stormlordd will figure out right away who he actually is.
Terelle is a prisoner of Russet’s water-painting magic, Shale is forced to work alongside the devious Taquar, while Ryka and Kaneth are slaves of the Reduners, the dune nomads.
A quick, fleeting memory of the past triggered by something in the present. Aug 26, Jenny Delandro rated it it was amazing Shelves: The nomadic Reduners have destroyed the Quarterns cities and taken many of the people hostage. But I have to say that there needs to be a point to it. In the desert-dry Quartern nation, only a cloudmaster can keep people alive by calling the rains. This review may contain spoilers from The Last Stormlord Not long ago I discovered by chance ‘The Last Stormlord,’ and it may have been my favorite new read of the year.
Our protagonists’ relationship was fun, as were the solutions they found by combining their powers.
Taquar attempts to manipulate and control him, but like a teenager testing the boundaries, Jasper risig to be controlled. Even though it was mildly entertaining, I had no interest in any of the characters, I didn’t care what was going to happen to them, and I wasn’t at all immersed, and I didn’t wanna waste a few more days reading the last ish more pages.
I’m looking forward to the final installment a great deal. Now, in real life, yes, people will dwell on the past, especially the bad stuff, but you can’t stormllrd that to a book because is just gets boring. Sep 25, Kiri rated it really liked it Shelves: Good stories poorly written seem to be a bit of a theme as of late.
Considering its straightforward plot and characterization, Stormlord Rising contains a disproportionately large number of characters that are involved in or are the victim of sexual violence and sexual manipulation. It didn’t seem right The only person with a modicum of moral complexity is our stormlord, who is thereby also rendered incapable of acting.
Sep 23, Fantasy Literature rated it it was ok. It’s just so relentlessly vexing when female characters go against their personalities, doing stupid things for the sake of their men folk.
Stormlord Rising | Glenda Larke
It is very much a middle book, in the sence that very little seems to happen, and what does happen, happens very slowly. Want to Read saving…. Shale has been betrayed, drugged, and left at the stormlorf of his greatest enemy. It took me forever to get into this story, it really dragged for me until the last about pages when I got caught up riising the story.
