    This a great fantasy trilogy, one that boasts a memorable cast of characters: a seemingly stoic wizard to a half breed thief, from an iceland giant too a young crystal wielder whose destiny is to bring down the Onyx. These along with many loyalists fighting for the true King embark upon an epic adventure to rid the realm of the influence of The One and his servants.

These along with many loyalists fighting for the true King embark upon an epic adventure to rid the realm of the influence of The One and his servants. The series is filled with plot twists, unexpected turns and surprising revelations. I have read books from authors which much more renown, than this one, that are of a much poorer quality. It is a shame these books are not more out there! In addition it is nice to read a series of books in a fantasy universe that has a high degree of gender equality. The women have almost equal rights/respect and are not as subjected as is apparent in most historical/fantasy settings. I am not sure if these books were professionally edited but there are some errors with in the text that are noticeable. At one point the “Archwizard” turns into the “Archbishop”. This did not affect my enjoyment of the novels but some harsh critics would scrutinise over such things. In this review I have added my reviews for each individual novel in the series. -The Thunderstone “Of course she had read it twice already, still, that was new to someone who would read the same book over and over again until she could dream almost every word.” I love this sentence; being able to relate to it so much with my previous re reads of my favourite books. The opening of this book is energetic and action packed. The imagery created by the descriptions of the chase in the first scene is vivid. I was immersed into the prologue from the first few lines but found myself getting a bit annoyed of the repeated use of the phrase, “The man,” and,” Both Man and Beast.” However, my opinion changed when I realised that the author was emphasising this point, leading up to the revelation that he was not in fact a man but a boy. I liked the way the author slowly built in some background history of this fantasy universe by describing damage done by The One. I feel that more should have been said about him though. Nothing more was really mentioned till the very end of the book I found this a little annoying as I wanted to know whom the antagonists were. I enjoyed the multiple perspectives the story is told from and the characters seeing each other and learning of their opinions of one and another. The Lord of the Rings is obviously a massive inspiration to many fantasy writers including this one. I do think that what the author called the “mist mountains” seems to close to the misty mountains from middle earth and that should have perhaps been named differently. It just seems too similar and makes me think of Tolkien’s universe immediately, suffice to say you don’t want this to happen when reading another book. This however is a very minor issue. This book reminds me somewhat of a dungeons and dragons type universe and even bears some resemblance to a couple of video games. This is a good read in which an enjoyable fantasy world with its own unique characters and plot are created. I would recommend this book to any lover of fantasy, like myself and am eager to read the rest of the series in the future. If the author is reading this review, I would like to say thanks for providing this giveaway and that this was a charming read. Also that Eauxsage is an ingenious name for a wizard; one that tells the reader that the character is a wizard before we know he is. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. -The Treachery “Why is it that every time, he wondered, when a sparkle of sunshine enters your life, when a smile has crossed your face, when you breathe deep and think life is great, a cloud crosses overhead reminding you not to enjoy it too much.” I like to start reviews with a quote from the book and I think this quote is very true to life in general and a wise remark from an unassuming character. I have enjoyed this book much more than the first one in the series! The novel starts with a more in depth explanation of who the antagonists are and what they want. This allows to greater understanding of the greater scheme of things. The author has taken more time to describe the settings of the events and allows for greater immersion into the story. This, for me, is important with a novel of this genre. The reader needs to be able not just visualise the characters but also the places in which they visit and get a general feel of the setting and this is achieved very well. The thing I enjoy most about this fantasy universe is the quirkiness of some of the character’s names, not necessarily the main characters but the random side ones. Some of them are just brilliant. I like the idea of wizards of the diamond and wizards of the onyx being in a constant struggle for power. The introduction of more characters allows for a greater understanding of the world’s races which I felt was lacking a bit in the first novel. The character development is abundant especially in the case of Chellie who is growing more powerful as the tale continues and has a mysteriously close bond/relationship with Eauxsage . My only criticism for this novel is that the main characters have an uncanny way of being knocked unconscious during a fight scene though this is due to the magic they use but it makes some scenes predictable. This is an enjoyable read, and again, like the first book, it is a must read for any fantasy lover. -The Triad This book does not start as quickly as the previous two. It is more paced out and sometimes a little bit slow. This is probably because the most part of the story is told from the point of view of Birl, a character who has spent the first to novels drifting in and out of unconsciousness. Some of the other characters end up taking a back seat during the tale and what were once the main characters seem to be side characters. I wanted to read more about Euauxsage and Chellie. I don’t think Euaxsage even made an appearance till like page 200 and Tem had very few chapters. The above mentioned was my initial opinion of the novel. This however changed. The point of view of Birl began to grow upon me as she developed as a character. She went from a young, innocent girl to a strong, fiery, woman. The novel was unpredictable and at some points left me guessing what side the crystal wielder would end up taking, when she was branded with the Onyx. I liked how the triad formed and how together they fought the Onyx. The Chevalites were a particular favourite of mine. The cat people are totally unique race that have a special bond with their feline companions. Their world was beautifully described and the race themselves worthy of their own novel. Their rivals, the Histians are also a cleverly devised race of an evil nature. It seemed to me that through the series Hadden was set up as Birl’s love interest but this was changed last minute as a more enigmatic character was created though I was more happy to see this conclusion than the prospect of Birl becoming Hadden’s wife. I was very happy with the ending of this book; though it may be described as fairy tale ending it did not disappoint but left the reader wanting to read more!
