    I loved this series The fact that I finished all THREE books in the series is a BIG deal I ve only finished a handful of series recently Back when I was in university, I read a bunch of epic fantasy series, but now I don t have the time or the patience to read them This series focuses on the characters, but I loved the world building as well I want to ride a Pede over the red dunes This last book met all my expectations and I tore through it at a fast pace and was totally satisfied by the ending [...]

    And so on to the final part of the Watergivers Stormlords trilogy At this point, I m sufficiently invested in the characters and their world to care deeply about what happens to them I have no expectations, going in, as to where the story will end up The obvious possibility is a simple return to the status quo Shale and Terelle will succeed in finding a new source of water power whether from the mysterious Khromatis or elsewhere and everyone will settle down to rebuild the Scarpen cities with wa [...]

    This book unfortunately did not meet standards already met by previous stories There were a whole bunch of new sudden developments that seemed very left field, but that wasn t the issue The issue was the fact that all of a sudden, in the last fifty or so pages, all the final battles are done, everything is resolved, and now we re good to go, happy ending They traveled across not just the entire Quartern in the space of one paragraph to the next, but through an entire other country as well Charac [...]

    Glenda Larke s final book in the Watergiver s trilogy, Stormlord s Exile , is finally out I ve been looking forward to this one for a long time It s 720 pages long, which is who knows how many on the kindle If maps are important to you in a fantasy novel, you ll want to pick up a print copy The kindle copy s map is very poor, like most maps in the e reader versions There s no synopsis at the beginning, so you ll definitely need to start at the beginning if you re interested in the trilogy I pers [...]

    I am afraid that this review is going to be a bit unbalanced The reason for this is relatively simple The book itself was a bit unbalanced.The weird thing that happened here, is that this book actually felt like a middle book, and not a conclusion I honestly can not remember experiencing anything like it before I mean I have read alot of series that felt likelead ins to a bigger story, but I can not remember a second book being so much faster than the third Book one was a very interesting setup [...]


    Pauline

    I m going to miss the world that this series created I had initially picked up this book because the premise of the first in this series caught my attention Anything that deals with manipulating water gets a thumbs up from me I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was The world is particularly interesting as life relies on a handful of people who are water gifted and can shift water Also, this tale is not set in a Western medieval setting like a majority of fantasy books Instead we are placed [...]

    Epic conclusion to the Watergiver series What I love about these epic fantasy series is the way they weave a hundred plots together and in the end manage to lead us to a satisfying conclusion After three 500 pages plus volumes, I m going to miss the characters and the world Glenda Larke has created And let me tell you, it is a truly fascinating and unique world with cleverly wrought plots of love, politics and religion in an unforgivably harsh dry land I have to say that what I liked the most ab [...]


    Monica

    This is a great end to Shale s story I love the world the author has created Even though it is a light read, it is a lot of fun, and I would definitely recommend this series.


    Michelle

    You know you want to read my blog I feel like I should really title this Ode to Fantasy Fiction I think I m a fairly eclectic reader, generally speaking Maybe, with the common thread of something different, something not easy to figure out I like to be surprised I mean, it s fine to know that everything is going to work out in the end, but that s just common sense I feel like this book is a really good example about what fantasy fiction can really bring to the table.It s kind of.cidental that I [...]


    Terri

    One of the things Larke does best is fill her novels with lots of characters and settings, weaving them together into this seamless world that the book lover feels just has to exist somewhere because it feels so real Having spent something like 1400 pages with this series, I feel so invested in this world and what happens with the main characters.Having just imprisoned Taquar, Jasper is now providing rain for the Quatern and surrounding lands with the assistance of Terelle and her waterpainting [...]

    Although the first book in the series took a while to hook me This trilogy is worth a read for all those fantasy lovers I like the way that although the story is given a closure, there s enough story points setup to allow another trilogy I.e what Shale Jasper does with the gibber Ties with kromantia Growth of the two babies that seem to have stronger than stormlord powers Build of water painter arts in the quartern Religion and lord gold


    Doug

    Very good book I cried I hate that but it happens I hope there are of these the author sure laid the groundwork Things were good and bad, hard and easy, you know the cycle of tested and triumphs or losses This story had both The third book not the end I hope is simply a rollercoaster and the characters are flawed and vulnerable They are endearing and work through the hard stuff I am happy to have read them.


    Koit

    I feel this book finally makes the series worthwhile Less predictable than the previous but also keen on all fronts, this is an interesting installment At the same time I m a bit unhappy with how it all ends and I do feel that a massive case of deus ex machina is at play but this could be reading too much into it.


    Alien_duck

    Almost everyone got the karma I wanted them to, so yay One complaint is that this series was too much like real life The book is from povs, so if something is everyday to them they don t think about it, so I spent a lot of this series going wtf I m confused.And also, it means there are title things that never get answered, which is like real life, but infuriating

    First posted at Fantasy Review BarnThough I will try to avoid it, this review may contain spoilers from the first two books of the series.Last in the Stormlords Trilogy , this book contains no lapse in time from the second outing Terelle is still being forced back to her homeland by her grandfather s magic Ryka and Kaneth are working with the Redrunner Vera to build an opposition to Revard s army in the dunes And Jasper has things seemingly under control, with plenty of Terelle s paintings to ke [...]

    Repost from drying ink 2011 0 The final book of a trilogy always risky , Exile was a mixed read for me On the one hand, it s consistent it certainly doesn t dip in quality On the other hand, the finale disappointed especially in view of the build up Essentially, Exile starts out as the story of Stormlord Jasper s tenuous rule, and of his partner Terelle s enforced journey to Khromatis, where she hopes to bring back stormlords to aid the desertlike Quartern bring water from the sea It s a well c [...]


    Natasha Chowdory

    A very nice ending to the trilogy There s hardly any time left between Exile and this story so it was nice just to follow on The relationship with Terelle and Shale has finally happened and they re having fun being together but of course it can t last And finally after hearing about it for the last 2 books Terelle finally goes to Khromatis She seems to have morphed into a mini nicer version Laisa and as ever there is the comment that she s in very attractive but still somehow compelling Thanks G [...]


    Doc Opp

    The first book in this series was excellent The second book was pretty good This is the third in the series, and I am of decidedly mixed opinion Ending a trilogy especially a really strong series with compelling characters and intricate interweaving plots is hard I get that And so, while I m sympathetic to the challenge Larke has set up for herself, the fact that the conclusion is anti climactic is still disappointing She spends 1800 pages building up the final, epic, confrontation, and less tha [...]

    I wanted to give this book a 4 stars but I wasn t feeling it I liked the series, it was a solid fantasy work but I found it lacking I d give it a 3.5 in total.I stick to my initial feel of it being juvenile The dialogue still confounded me with it s childishness coming from 30 year olds The plots and plans came off as naive at times Taquar and the whole baby thing And the flow of events felt a bit chopped and too easy What a coincidence that Jet s horse ran into Dibble and Jasper appeared out of [...]

    I do love trilogies, why, well cos they end It s comforting reading a series and knowing that there will be an ending in sight Still it s always sad when they do end.When this book starts the country is a mess The Reduners have been chased away but they are still out there And yes some of them are bad, but some are good and the whole Stormlord system is so bad All people should get water not just a chosen few.Which brings us to the characters, Shale tries to help his people, but so many of them [...]


    D.F. Haley

    I really liked the first book in this series, and the second was a bit of a slog, but still liked the characters with the exception of Shale, who started to get whiny and largely did nothing about it Ryka, in particular was a high point in the second book.The third book was a great disappointment The good news was that most of the various story threads were wrapped up Kaneth emerged as a heroic character, finally Mica remained a conflicted bad guy, sorta Terrelle s travails were the high point, [...]


    Ithlilian

    I m torn between four and five stars for this one I love this series, and this is one of the best books I ve read in awhile, but the fighting scenes didn t keep my attention I found myself skipping sections at times to see the outcome instead of hanging on details That may not be the book s fault, as war scenes are usually my least favorite part of any novel Either way, I love this series, and enjoyed every book immensely I enjoy most of the characters in this, but I am fascinated with the worl [...]


    Kerr

    I deleted my original review After deciding I wouldnt finish this book, curiosity got the better of me Having sneaked at the end, I knew some of the outcome but not all of it So, I quickly skimmed through the 2 3rds of the book that was left and surprisingly I m glad I did, even if that s only partly because it means the book DIDN T defeat me It was almost as if, in marking it as unfinished it meant I no longer had to read it and I could ignore most of it and just seek out the interesting bits.I [...]


    Jordan Frankel

    I have to say, I am really sad that I finished this book I think the Quartern and beyond is such a unique setting that Larke really has something going here I want If you are reading this book, then you should already know what is going to happen in the third installment Jasper, Terelle, Ryka and Kaneth must battle their enemies Taquar, Ravard and Russett if we want to call him an enemey Again, Larke does a good job of making you want the villains dead, but also humanizing them a bit to where y [...]


    Alyssa

    This book unsettled me a little bit I think it s because it s right in the middle of being a 4 star and a 5 star, for me Everything I wanted to have happen happened, but I felt vaguely dissatisfied when it did There were characters I wanted dead but felt disappointed when they died The transgender bit seemed random, but it makes me wonder why it seemed random Does a topic like that have to be political Can t we just accept it as part of the character and leave it at that My random thoughts on th [...]


    P.H. Solomon

    First let me say I really enjoyed the whole series and the various unique fantasy elements used by the author against the backdrop of political tension over water All these were consistently used throughout the whole series and even twisted again in this final book However, this last book left me rather unsettled as to the outcomes Everything seemed rushed and easily brushed away I felt that the journey in Khromatis could have used a longer treatment as well as the interactions with the antagoni [...]


    Rcliment

    When i began reading the Watergivers trilogy i was afraid it would be yet another typical modern fantasy book where the main character just keeps on getting better and powerful to the point of it being ridiculous, to the point of it ruining the story.Glenda, i want to thank you for letting me read a proper story for once, thank you Stormlord s Exile continues where Stormlord Rising leaves off and sets a nice even pace throughout the book with a few twists and turns The characters continue to gr [...]


    Dolly

    An excellent conclusion to a very consistently well written and original fantasy series Not only did each book in this series have it s own arc that was engrossing and well written, the overall development of all the main players throughout is very good.Also it would be remiss if I didn t praise the inclusion of explicitly POC races characters both the main characters could be read as POC and the inclusion of a trans man as a central and powerful character Also explicit discussion of issues face [...]


    Tabs

    Thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy, not so much book two, but if that was what I had to ho through to find out the fate of one of the most amazing characters i have come across in ages then it was worth it.Note to the author I could walk through the dunes with vivid pictures of the tents and stars in the sky I could visualize the cisterns and water jars I could even walk the streets of Wash Drybone and spent a couple nights with Shale in captivity, but the excruciating detail about the fighting and [...]


    Helen Merrick

    Wonderful ending to a fabulous series I am sorry to leave this world and its people, but was very happy with the resolution of so many intricate plots, intrigues and relationships Larke still managed to introduce some extra twists and surprises in this volume, and we finally get to see beyond the Quartern to the mysterious Khromatis, which shatters not a few preconceptions of a number of characters and indeed readers.I love how Larke seamlessly builds the landscape, weather, creatures, politics [...]
