4.5 BLACK FEATHER STARS Another buddy read with my chums at BBB The so called Emissary is going to regret crossing the Black Feather Three Another fantastic book by Jen Williams, well done Jen thank you for writing the Copper Cat Trilogy, I enjoyed every second spent reading it can t wait to read it again I can honestly say that this book is a very special treat and not only this book the whole entire trilogy is awesome I loved reading them all but I enjoyed this one a tiny bit I felt it had ac [...]
4.44 Another great buddy read with the Fantasy Addicts at BBB We need Dragons What a refreshing treat this whole series has been I have to admit, the first book in the series was a bit disjointed and I was not sure how it would progress, but the author got out of the first book jitters and delivered a great two following books to close the story with This whole trilogy was strongly reminiscent of the fun science fiction of the late 70 s and 80 s It brought alive worlds and creatures filled with [...]
The 2016 November BBB re read of the final book in the Copper Cat Trilogy with my wonderful friends, Choko and Sarah, is now done Thank you so much for reading it with me ladies, it was a great time DAs for the book it was fantastic once again A poignant and rewarding and fun filled read that I will look forward to experiencing again in the future.__________________________________The Silver Tide is the perfect ending to an excellent debut trilogy It takes everything I love about fantasy and spi [...]
4.5 stars.Conclusions can be tricky, and I ve been disappointed by quite a few Thankfully, The Silver Tide does not belong in that unfortunate category The denouement of this underrated Copper Cat trilogy was utterly satisfying and even brought a little lump in my throat as I bid farewell to the Black Feather Three to whom I ve grown quite attached There have also been at least a couple of well lauded fantasy series out there which I ve put aside due to the trusted opinions of a great bookish fr [...]
Final rating 6 5 starsFor the whole series 5 5 starsDespite everything, they had a plan It was a ridiculous plan and they would likely all be killed, but they weren t going down without a fight If it was easy, it wouldn t be any fun, would it This is one of the best series I have read lately It was damn perfect Fantastic plot, so many emotions, fantastic characters I just couldn t stop reading I read first 20% in one night,and another 80% today without rest.Not to mention, THAT ENDING I don t re [...]
Read with my buds at BBB, 2016NAL RATING 4.5 STARSAGAINWhat a beautiful book I read the previous two a couple months ago and still remember the characters and the plots I was hesitant to pick this one up as I was pretty anxious to have it all end but alas, there must be an end to everythingd this may be one of the best endings to a book series I ve read I m serious.I m a girl who loves her trilogies E.g Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Howl s Moving Castle, Foundationere s a plethora of trilogi [...]
The Review Can Also Be Found Here The Copper Cat Trilogy has been one of my favourites of recent years in the epic fantasy genre It s fun, engaging and well written, feeling a lot like David Lynch s Gentleman s Bastard series and working really well as a result The characters have been really fun to follow and it was great to see Aaron Firth Wydrin, and Sebastian Caverson return even if this is the conclusion to the Trilogy We follow them on their latest assignment from the deadly pirate and Wyd [...]
4 solid stars until the ending When they turned 5 The final book of the Copper Cat trilogy keeps the flair of its predecessors, like unremitting action, witty repartee, an engaging plot and very, very interesting characters Yet it s also different, there is a definite development of all the story threads weaved that far resolved or otherwise and they converge well It is still a light read, with emphasis on action than on motivations Sebastian Seriously , but this installment offers complexity [...]
I first got into fantasy through the likes of Narnia and The Hobbit as a kid After years of terrible Tolkien imitations, I went off it and moved on to urban fantasy The Copper Cat trilogy has made me fall in love with swords and sorcery all over again, and The Silver Tide in particular has had me beaming with joy It is just such a blast to read, replacing long travel descriptions with fights and adventure, and replacing the sausage fest of Ye Olde Fantasy with a fabulous and diverse cast of char [...]
I loved this whole trilogy sooo much Review to come
A worthy conclusion to the trilogy I was curious to see what the author would pull off in the third book, after all how could things get bigger and powerful than Y ruen in the first book and Joah Demonsworn and Bezcavar in the second I guess because of this expectation I struggled with the first half, but after that things started to click together, though the antagonists didn t had that much screen time, specially when displaying full power.It also used very well a certain trope I guess it wou [...]
Like the two before it this is filled with fun, action and fruity language And again, despite it s magnificent size, I found it a breeze to read Tucked between the explosions however there are deeper things going on There are themes of consequence, taking responsibility, the importance of love, not to mention dealing with grief and our own personal demons The characters are loveable as ever and while I m sad to wave goodbye to them, it feels like they got the send off they deserved Top job
Pirates, time travel, dragons, Oh My The Silver Tide returns us to The Black Feather Three and their exploits And this time we re meeting Wydrin s family, who are about as awesome as you d expect from knowing Wydrin Because Wydrin hails from pirate stock and her mum is the biggest, baddest pirate around And while the pirates absolutely mean tons of action, what stuck with me most about Devinia and the other pirates, but mostly Devinia was the incredible emotional depth to their character develop [...]
The Silver Tide is Jen Williams last book in a trilogy that could be described with an unstopabble string of positive adjectives, but a simple superb will have to do for now.Firstly, you should know that you can pick up and enjoy this story immensely without having any previous knowledge of The Copper Promise or The Iron Ghost, but I would highly recommend that you went through them first, otherwise you might miss out on some elements of the story.This is a world rich and diverse, but where Jen [...]
copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review I received this from Netgalley and started reading it before realising it was the third part of a trilogy I soon found out that it was possible to catch up quite quickly and figure out who was who, and so I did not feel it necessary to read the previous two though I might do so in the near future.First off, I love the cover the imagery and the clever little phrase I also like how the writer examines the relationship between Gods humans who worship the [...]
Clever, creative, diverse in so many respects gay characters, lesbian characters, multiple PoC main characters, disabled characters , and so very fun.
The end of an amazing journey I ll miss the Black Feather Three and hope to join them again some time on some adventure.
First published on Fantasy Faction By now, I m sure everyone knows how much I love Jen s books Last year I was raving about The Iron Ghost, which was one of my favourite titles of 2015, and I m happy to say that The Silver Tide is firmly lodged in my favourites of 2016 Not only is it a great book, it s a great end to the series There s a lot of pressure on an author to finish a trilogy to everyone s satisfaction, but Jen has delivered a perfect finale Like its predecessors, The Silver Tide is pa [...]
Please be aware this review may contain spoilers for both The Copper Promise and The Iron Ghost.This is the end, my friends The final volume in Jen Williams blood and thunderous Copper Cat Trilogy, and, as promised right from the start, we re going out on a high.I ve made no secrect of my love for these books It s incredibly rare, in fiction as it is in film making, to stumble across the perfect trilogy, and I m going to go all in up front Wydrin would approve, I think and say that The Copper Ca [...]
Ye Gods and little fishes I m so sad this trilogy is over It was absolutely amazing The final book gave me everything I was looking for and , even though I d be quite happy with another three books as I just love all the characters so much.In The Silver Tide, The Black Feathered Three travel to an island called Euriale which is seeped in old magic The mercenaries and ex mage have been employed by Wydrin s mother, fierce pirate captain Devenia the Red to find some hidden treasure But they end up [...]
This was a hell of a ride The epic conclusion to an amazing series.I mean, it had action, adventure, pirates, magic and dragons and lots of other things I m not telling you about because you really should just go read it and find out It was also so much fun Almost since the first chapter in the first book this instantly became one of my top favorite series I ve said it before and I ll say it again if you re even a little bit into fantasy, you need to read this series.Jen Williams writing just ke [...]
The Silver Tide is I believe the most strong novel in the Copper Cat Trilogy Here we plunge again into the ancient world of gods and monsters, and wild magic What I liked most in this book is that Jen Williams pays equal attention in developing the characters as well as advancing the plot Like the other two novels, this book delivers a good action packed story, albeit with an epic sense to it.The Silver Tide mixes the old familiar tropes with a little sci fi element in them In this novel, there [...]
lynns books 2016 02 25 theJust finished reading The Silver Tide by Jen Williams This series is so good that it makes me want to cry because it s now come to an end Literally, I could cry right now Enough about me though, to the book with a small cautionary note about spoilers for the first two books in the series.This book is so good, I absolutely loved it It s jam packed with so many goodies that I m sure I developed an ache in my jaw from just gaping ridiculously whilst reading Not only do we [...]
Phenomenal end to a phenomenal series.
copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review The Silver Tide is the third entry in Jen William s Copper Cat sequence It follows the adventures of female mercenary and professional troublemaker Wydrin, along with her colleagues frenemies Sebastian the knight and the rather cranky mage, Lord Frith In the interests of full disclosure I ve been a fan of William s work since her first in this sequence, The Copper Promise , and the second, The Iron Ghost was one of the first works I reviewed on this b [...]
Trilogies are tricky things to work properly they should do than simply be one long story there should be themes that ebb and flow Narratives which build and peak and then build again I usually count myself lucky if the trilogy I read is three decent books which hold together well And then there s Jen William s Copper Cat trilogy which I am so deeply in love with right now it is a little bit obscene.Here is my review of the Silver Tide, there will necessarily be spoilers for The Copper Promise [...]
jerasjamboree 2016 0The Silver Tide surpassed all my expectations.New characters give colour and depth Wydrin s mum Devinia makes an entrance and I wouldn t have expected anything less and we get to meet up with characters from the past sorry but Jonah still made my skin crawl even if it was before.While Devinia is facing her own vulnerability on Euriale our indomitable Black Feather Three are also separated and learning things about themselves and what they re really capable of.The island has i [...]
fun reade end was a good end for the characters but i felt the need for and maybe not a good end to all of tham it was very fast end to the evil in the world, and i thought it was to easy i felt a little sad not to get a full story about the world and it s legends, of the magic system, and about the island of the god and how the gods are born maybe do something like turn Frith into a god and then let him fight the other new god or maybe even becoming the god that keep the island safe with Wyd [...]
The third and final book to the very enjoyable Copper Cat trilogy Frith, Wydrin and Sebastian are the Black Feather Three, a trio of adventurers who defend against dark magic, well if the coin is right Individually they are stubborn, but as a team they are still stubborn but they get the job done The Silver Tide brings the trilogy full circle with the return of past enemies, most notably Joah Demonsworth.I adore William s style of fantasy, her world building is epic and bold without being overly [...]
Destiny is just a fancy word for people who want their own way all the time I suppose all good things must end, so Jenny Williams blisteringly entertaining The Copper Cat had the end But what an end Over 600 pages of fantasy action and damn fine story telling As a good trilogy should, it finishes exactly when and where it needed to finish But leaving the reader wishing for just one chapter And just one after that.
