    Wow 4.5 As I read the three in one version, this book looked like quite a bite back when I started it Having read the Kingmaker series by her, my expectations were blown away by the experience this book gave.The first part of the trilogy focuses on Mijak and read felt muchlike Steven Erikson or Glen Cook than Miller s first books It was very dark and detailed a descent into madnessthan anything else Broke convention for me.The second book readlike a her other novels and is Wow 4.5 As I read the three in one version, this book looked like quite a bite back when I started it Having read the Kingmaker series by her, my expectations were blown away by the experience this book gave.The first part of the trilogy focuses on Mijak and read felt muchlike Steven Erikson or Glen Cook than Miller s first books It was very dark and detailed a descent into madnessthan anything else Broke convention for me.The second book readlike a her other novels and is set in a muchtraditional 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 muchdepth given to the Tsung Again, the third went back to a Glen Cook like feel, though it was not near as dark.I believe that I got the epic grim fantasy feel partially from the tone, but muchfrom the world feel Mijak and Tsung are much not usual settings countries 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 fantasy can be good for But then 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 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 But then 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 A GOOD religion for the most part and although for a long time we were in the heads of the other, alien world, with the odd, blood soaked religion law, now we can see who is good and who is bad, and it s simple, simple, simple Also, guess what, it turns out that the good, gentle island people, who don t even have an army, are WHITE, and the desert, demon possessed, blood soaked people are mainly brown and black Yeah, okay Fuck off, Miller There were a couple of interesting moments, but all and in all the stories fail because Miller s imagination fails

    This book is a trilogy wrapped up in one pretty little and very long package The books are Empress, The Riven Kingdom and Hammer of God I have a lot of thoughts about this series so bare with me here while I try to make it somewhat comprehensible.I ve written a review about Empress here about my love for Hekat, the protagonist of that book I know a lot of people that read it hate her, but I love Hekat and I love that first book and I always will It s dark and gritty and a good read I was This book is a trilogy wrapped up in one pretty little and very long package The books are Empress, The Riven Kingdom and Hammer of God I have a lot of thoughts about this series so bare with me here while I try to make it somewhat comprehensible.I ve written a review about Empress here about my love for Hekat, the protagonist of that book I know a lot of people that read it hate her, but I love Hekat and I love that first book and I always will It s dark and gritty and a good read I was young when I first read this series about 17, I m 26 now and my perception of the other two books in the trilogy has changed from then.The theme of this series is centered around God s with magical elements Now, without getting into it too much, I am not a religious person by any means I m not part of any organized religion as I m Native American and was raised in our old ceremonies etc etc and I mention it because I want it to be clear that I m not any sort of religious authority BUT when I m reading a fantasy sci fi fiction books I LOVE reading about fictitious religions There are so many different avenues of belief and it s interesting to me to see how religions can be different and the same, and who knows, if things had gone differently, maybe we d have a similar religion to some in this book The blood was warm, it covered his feet, his ankles, his calves It rose up his thighs, it lapped at his genitals like a woman s tongue, it sighed across his belly and drowned his scarred chest Rank warm blood flowed over his lips, his eyes, it stopped his breathing He swam in blood.The problem though is that in the first book there is this incredibly powerful and bloodthirsty god that craves sacrificial blood and offerings and sends their desires through scorpions and answering questions to people royalty that ask as they swim through blood The god is nameless and is neither male or female Super unique and cool to read about, right Then in the other two books you basically get an off brand version of Christianity A prophet named Rollins preaches peace and acceptance and then is crucified shot with arrows for it and the kingdom unites and there s peace at last And go figure, the ones with the good god are white I can t count how many times they called anyone that had any religion other than theirs HEATHANS The whole book boils down to this good god vs the bad god Granted, a lot of stories boil down to good vs evil but I feel this could have been handled differently.The second book is basically a young woman trying to take her place on the throne and literally everyone shitting on her for it because she s a female and she has to fight back with an unlikely crew This book is about a 180 from the first book but it s still a great read and has some really satisfying scenes But the protagonist, Rhian, is about the complete opposite of Hekat as you can get aside from the whole I will be the one in power thing And she kind of whines a lot view spoiler And her husband is kind of an asshole hide spoiler She refuses to cause bloodshed meanwhile Hekat bathes in it Rhian can t seem to grasp the fact that she s going to have to do things she doesn t like in order to keep the kingdom she fought so hard for Yeah, okay let s just drag our feet with this impending doom looming named Hekat And once you read the first book you ll understand why that s so terrifying.I think part of my frustration with the third book comes with the fact that there are other nations and religions in this book that were interesting, that could ve been the force that fights back against the impending takeover from Hekat There is the nation of people that can hear the wind and can step through a twilight space There is the nation that wears seal skins and get their visions from their deity in dreams All of this is done WELL and is COOL and I wanted to seeof that but meanwhile I m stuck with the protag and her crew calling them all heathens Like come onnnnnnnTruly, Zandakar, your people are barbaric I think all you must care about is killing and blood Barbaric He did not know that word but he could guess what it meant Anger burned him Rhian stupid if she let dukes live Arrow in the body, make poison, kill, does Rhian leave it thereAnd dammit, the love tension in this book auguuugggh Zandakar leapt out beside her, flashing her another swift smile The dry land shifted beneath her feet and her blood became a waterfall, thundering through her veins She pressed a hand against her thudding heart and made herself breathe normally.It s so good Oh my god The fight between love and duty and lasdkjfsa, this part I enjoyed Definitely wasn t the focus of the book but there was just a little enough to make your heart go WHYYY Anyway, all that aside, I do love this series I read it every so often The second and third book I read to read the progress of Hekat and Zandakar, and the other nations, and you do get a point of view from another leader of a different nation which is nice It would be nice though if they weren t morsels and instead had been the whole bookWhy do you not see that your truth is not the only truth TL DR This series is my problematic fave

    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 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

    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 3 4 of the way though At that point the arguments the characters were having got old fast and my enjoyment was diminished.The third book was not good I can sum it up for you here Argument number 1 Zandakar is not trustworthOh, yes, he is Argument number 2 Here is my our opinion sI don t care I m the queen and I ll do 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 3 4 of the way though At that point the arguments the characters were having got old fast and my enjoyment was diminished.The third book was not good I can sum it up for you here Argument number 1 Zandakar is not trustworthOh, yes, he is Argument number 2 Here is my our opinion sI don t care I m the queen and I ll do what I want.Argument number 3 I don t believe what you re saying despite the miracles shown to meHere s another miracle..I don t believe you.That s pretty much the book right there Perhaps it s realistic that people argue about the same things over and over with the same logic, but it certainly doesn t make good reading.I almost gave it 1 star because after the final battle started, they started arguing about the same 3 things again and I almost didn t read past that I was able to finish it at least, so I m giving it 2 stars

    I once saw a review that described Karen Miller as a bi polar writer, she s either brilliant or terrible The Godspeaker trilogy is an example of terrible angst ridden writing.It reads like a bad Shakespearean tragedy I don t know about you, but when I read a novel I invest a lot of feeling into my characters so when they get killed off, I expected their death to at least contribute to the storyline I feel like the dialogue in most of this trilogy consisted of Character 1 makes an argument to I once saw a review that described Karen Miller as a bi polar writer, she s either brilliant or terrible The Godspeaker trilogy is an example of terrible angst ridden writing.It reads like a bad Shakespearean tragedy I don t know about you, but when I read a novel I invest a lot of feeling into my characters so when they get killed off, I expected their death to at least contribute to the storyline I feel like the dialogue in most of this trilogy consisted of Character 1 makes an argument to do something.Character 2 argues against it.50 pages later, rinse and repeat the argument 100 pages later, do so again At the end of the book, suddenly Character 2 does an about face and suddenly agrees with Character 1 for no reason It s frustrating that all the characters are so illogical

I tired of the plot and characters before completing book 2 I should have just stopped there

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 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, this was a BIG DEAL for me to stop reading fantasy for a bit It was a disappointment because the first book was so so so good So different from the Tolkien GRRM Jordan imitators This was an epic fantasy that smacked, reeked, OOZED otherness 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, this was a BIG DEAL for me to stop reading fantasy for a bit It was a disappointment because the first book was so so so good So different from the Tolkien GRRM Jordan imitators This was an epic fantasy that smacked, reeked, OOZED otherness in the first book Hekat was a fascinating character, who lived and thrived in a fascinating culture And then the awful second book And awful third book Suddenly there is some good, forgettable princess Maybe a duchess Maybe I don t give a shit Living in europe Who is going to battle this great character Hekat and save the world, with the help of Hekats exiled son Yawn I didn t care about this new character and never did I wanted Hekat to destroy new character woman s kingdom because that kingdom was so uninspired and bland.Although Hekat is a character I hated because she is tyrant despot, at least I want to read about her her culture Because she and it were fresh and new and not medieval clones 2 stars because it takes a lot of skill to write a despicable character I want to readof and don t necessarily want to be defeated I hate that this spiraled into medievalism in books 2 3 The author should just burn those books and rewrite 2 3 with the interesting character and not the duchess

    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 quite appreciate that work as it made the characters that live by those culturesbelievable in their beliefs and actions.The slow burn of the over arcing story is great as well but I much enjoyed the character relationships as they grew through the three boo 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 quite appreciate that work as it made the characters that live by those culturesbelievable in their beliefs and actions.The slow burn of the over arcing story is great as well but I much enjoyed the character relationships as they grew through the three books Each character has their convictions and they live by them Overall, great series if you are into long stories that develop over many books, strong female characters both good and bad, and fantastic world building
