Read full description of the books:
I finish this book 24h ago, but just now gather my forces and can write a few words about it. Don't be worried, it don't have any spoiler about this book or the previous (The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit)
The first book is about a human, Pellaz, learning what are Wraeththu. It's a future, an apocalyptic future and humans are not the dominant specie on Earth, Wraeththu are... ruling the Earth.
Reading this book is almost like be again seeing by an innocent eye what an Wraeththu is. It's all Swift point of view... a pure Wraeththu... a rare child, born from two Wraeththu.
What can I say about him? First of all, that's his image
He is the son of Cobweb, a Wraeththu full of magic and wrapped in mystery. And of course, the son also of Terzian, Cobweb consort, and he is not just a Wraeththu, but much more... a Varr.
Read it, to see though an infant eyes, innocent eyes, the beauty of his home, forever, and the love of his hostling (Cobweb, the "mother" figure of his life), and the... cruelty of his tribe. But Swift path is long, full or joy, despair and sadness. You must read to see it, to feel it...
I learn a lot more reading this second book, but still have much more to know. I miss Pellaz (the narrator of the first book) but it's the way it must be... each thing will happen in a precise time, and patience dear reader of this review, is a virtue.
I need to read the 3 book, and know what will happen now. I'm very excited knowing who will be the narrator, but also terrified.
If up to now I felt a little sadness and despair reading this dark fantasy tale, probably the last book The Fulfilments of Fate and Desire will give the final blow that will break my heart.
Last remark, the third book have a very mysterious character in the cover art. He is Thiede.
it's blood, liking from his hands? Or just a lock of his bright red hair? Why all the manipulation? Why all the pain he is causing? Why why why... the only why to know it is read more, suffer more... and I will.
I must read the third of this series, and I will...
5 stars just because I can't give more. Certainly I would if I could, because it's one of those rare cases of a book (better say series) so overwhelming I don't know how could I express my sentiments with words... so sorry, I try and I hope this review modestly show you, dear reader of this review, my immense satisfaction of the reading, and my immense fear of what can happen from this book on. I hope, and I wish it will end well, but even with a HEA, after so many tragedy, it will be enough to bring a smile in my face? Bring tears of joy?
We shall see... we shall see.
