Read full description of the books:
This is the debut of Megan Lindholm (best known as Robin Hobb). Although it’s a bit clumsy and doesn’t have the fluency her later books have, you can see Fitz’ world and Realms of the Elderlings series blooming from here.
The style is the same – character driven stories, this one more introspective and descriptive than all others I read. I don’t think many will like it too much because of its slow pace, but I did – I missed her warm words.
And by all means, it’s a truly sweet, tragic but also hopeful story; one of an ending and a new beginning. It doesn’t have a proper magic system (yet) but the touches present here and there - mostly related to the world - are unique.
Ki and Vandien are two strong characters, easy to root for. There are also other sentient species, albeit not very detailed here but intriguing nonetheless and I hope they will be developed further in the next books.
One (more) thing I appreciate in her works is the love and respect for nature in its entirety which you can sense in every word. I have a soft spot for that.
And I loved below paragraph, even though Harpies (view spoiler)[are, well, sort of the bad guys here (hide spoiler)]:
, ‘[…]But a Harpy kills only in need. Only when it must feed. It is not like a Human, who may kill for sport or sheer idleness. Harpies have learned the balancing points between the worlds, between death and life itself. They could show us the paths of peace our own kind have forgotten.’
