The Memory of Souls by Jenn Lyons

This book upped the ante even more if that is possible. Told in a similar manner to the previous books, it starts with Kihrin and Thurvishar recovering after some major event of which we nothing at the start. The story is then unfolded from the end of the second book until this scene at the …

The Name of All Things by Jenn Lyons

Didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book but it was still a good read. The ‘present’ part of this book is set three days after the events of the first book, however the vast majority is flashbacks from a few years before the events of the first book and gradually overlapping those events …

The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons

Unusual story setup but I enjoyed every minute of this. So this tells the story of Kihrin, the son of a musician in a brothel, who also works part time as a thief. At the start of the book he is in a jail cell and is being forced to recount his story to the …

Servant of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

Much more expansive than the first one but still great. There’s a bit of a time gap from the first book but I think it’s only a few months. Mara is buying some slaves and ends up buying some Midkemian slaves which includes Kevin who ends up becoming integral to the story. The rest of …

Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts

Mara has to be one of my all time favourite protagonists. Brilliant book. So we start with Mara about to undergo her rites of admission to a religious order. However due to circumstances out of her control, this is interrupted and she becomes Ruling Lady of the Acoma and is thrust into survival to both …

Polgara the Sorceress by David and Leigh Eddings

Parts of it were great but far too much repetition of events. So after the ‘biography’ we had of Belgarath, we now have the same for Polgara. The same pretence is used in that Ce’Nedra wants to get the full story as she thought that Belgarath had left too much out of his so she …

Belgarath the Sorcerer by David and Leigh Eddings

A great story that expands on events referenced in the main books though it has its flaws. The framing of the book is that Garion and Durnik basically badger Belgarath into writing his memoirs and it is in this style that it is written. It’s all told from his POV with lots of snide comments …

Seeress of Kell by David Eddings

Great end to the series, all wrapped up and tied with a bow satisfactorily. Again there’s no time jump here, we’re straight into the action from where we left off. The endgame is almost in sight and there are just a couple more places to go before the meeting at the Place Which is No …

Sorceress of Darshiva by David Eddings

Great continuation of the series. Again there’s no time jump here, we start immediately where we left off. There’s a few POV’s from familiar characters in other parts of the world before going back to Garion and the gang for the rest of the book. Here we get to explore Melcene and then move on …

Demon Lord of Karanda by David Eddings

Great book, especially considering it’s the middle of a five book series. Continuing on exactly where we left off, Garion and Co are being brought to Emperor Zakath and from there, the scene moves to the continent of Mallorea. I just love this book. Zakath is probably one of my favourite characters in the series. …
