1 . Not What I Expected
Posted September 01, 2009 by loreend , Portland, ORAfter reading Empress, I couldn't wait to read this second book in the Godspeaker trilogy. I wanted to know what happened next to Hekat, Zandaker, Dimitrak and Vortka. Instead, we go to a different country of the world and have to follow the story of Rhian, the princess of Ethrea. Mijak, Hekat, Zandakar and the others are hardly in this book at all.
I could not bring myself to like Rhian at all. Every scene with her was frustrating and boring. She was weak, whiny, indecisvie, selfish, and at times, downright stupid. Her whole personality ruined the book for me.
While I get that this is the bridge between the beginning and the end of the story, I cannot bring myself to buy the third book. It was torture to finish this one.
Empress is a fantastic read. I would recommend it to any of my fantasy reading friends. Continuing the story though, I cannot recommend this book. I was very disappointed with the characters and story.
2 . Book 2 is Excellent
Posted April 14, 2009 by Jody , Batavia,IlAfter reading book 1 I had to purchase books 2 and 3. This trilogy was so enthralling I had to continue. Karen Miller really can tell a tale!
