    One thought on “When Darkness Falls”

    1. Wellis one might best be thought of as a 3.5 I like this series and was very drawn in I jumped from the second to this one immediately after finishing it.This one however slowed down a bit in that it got very repetitive Ms Lackey seemed to for a while to have fallen prey to Robert Jordan syndrome in that starting with a retelling of the end of the second book as the second book began with a retelling of the first after which she, instead of launching out into the the plot began relating a lot we [...]

    2. Third and final book to The Obsidian Trilogy I ve already provided extensive reviews to the first two, and I fear risking repeating myself as I consider its positive and negative points.The good of this book and the series as a whole seems rooted in its interesting systems of Magic, its classic high fantasy flavor, and its detailed realism as it puts together an army based war against good and evil I am all the convinced at the extensive research that must have gone into constructing the plot c [...]

    3. A lot of people see Mercedes Lackey s books as immature or unoriginal I have even heard people say that she can t write without the help of someone else I tend to disagree It s not Bronte or Douglas Adams or Arthur Clark This book, and all of Lackey s, are what they are and are nothing else Some would argue that this is not the way people would behave in the situations Well, Duh It s fiction Let s see, if we were in a war against evil demons a good person with a lot of heart wouldn t try and do [...]

    4. different from the valdemar series that mercedes lackey is so well known for and a delightful change in pace from her usual stories i love this author and own a good portion of her 100 or so published books this particular series demands your attention and wrenches every emotion from you during your reading experience this is a great series to start off with if you are unfamilar with her writing style, but with any series i would start at the beginning and this trilogy only gets better so look f [...]

    5. Kellen found his way Good for him He trained and learned and strived for success over and over He grew into his abilities and the respect of others He is the right man for the job But is the world and others ready to let him do it The fact that you are headed towars a goal and reach it, and others telling you that you have reached maturity, doesn t mean at all that it is the truth Jermayan and Ashaniel s conversation Is Kellen wiser than his years and species Priceless

    6. Good ending to this trilogy Answers the age old question of how a human age span of 80 years and an elf age span of centuries can maintain a long long relationship Human must sacrifice self to save the world and then get reborn as an elf The other elf then only has to wait a measly 18 years for a lifetime of romance.

    7. The series ends pretty much like I expected it to There weren t really any surprises the good guys win and the bad guys lose Just like the rest in the series it isn t the most original tale, but it was still enjoyable.I was a bit surprised that the story continued a bit after the final battle In most stories the good guys win and then there is an epilogue that says a few years later everyone is living happily ever after This story continues a bit and Kellen actually goes off and finishes off the [...]

    8. I wasn t a big fan of this book or this trilogy overall I had three main complaints 1 It s morally simplistic There are the good guys and the bad guys To make it even easier, you can basically tell whether someone is good or bad by what species they are and if they are from the bad species demons, shadow elves, etc then they should all be annihilated down to the last baby This is not how things are in real life and I find it a cheat The high mages were the only ones remotely ambiguous and I foun [...]

    9. This is where this book series and its war against the dark forces reaches its climax And what an exciting and satisfying ride it s been.This book, and this whole series has managed to keep the pace constantly, and has provided some incredibly engaging characters and equally memorable images.This series has given me much joy and entertainment, and is a must read for anyone who appreciates quality high fantasy, rich in detail and without shortcuts.There are, however, 31 pages of summary from the [...]

    10. Short version If this were not the final book in a trilogy, and I were not committed to reading a trilogy for a challenge and running out of time to do so, I probably would not have finished this book.As it is, I found myself skimming through this one quite a bit something that I very rarely ever do, but I felt that the story was being forcibly dragged out for the sake of making what could easily have fit into two books, into a trilogy instead, since three is the magical number.Upside There is a [...]

    11. Now THIS is how you write good epic fantasy I was a emotional wreck crying and laughing at the same time by the end of this book Mercedes Lackey takes what has been building up in the previous two books and just completely blows everything out of the water I was literally on the edge of my seat for the last hundred and fifty pages or so, just breathless with excitement and delight And the ending was beautiful and perfect Sad Yes But glorious as well I am really sad to see this trilogy end If you [...]

    12. Like the previous books in the trilogy, the first half was a bit slow, but the second half was quite hard to put down I liked the magic and the world, but I never felt too involved in many of the characters and there were parts that were a bit darker than I expected Still, there were a few characters that I really cared about I am not sure how I feel about the ending I m trying to avoid any spoilers, but it just seems odd I m not sure if this character is really alive or dead or reincarnated or [...]

    13. I first read this book about five year ago Generally, I liked it but I found the ending a little odd and couldn t really tell if I liked it or just found it too weird Five years later, I still don t know how I feel about the ending Overall whole of this series is greater than the sum of its parts The whole series tells a really interesting story which usually makes up for some of the slower bits along the way You do care enough for the characters and all that they have endured to make it to this [...]

    14. I enjoyed the trilogy over all, and the story was good when you got to part of it It seemed like most of the book was to remind you about what happened in the last two which was fine , but also to remind you what happened 5 pages ago Which made for slow reading, also if you ve read the first two books you know to get ready for a death When it happens it s sad but you knew so it was fine, but then it s like they changed their minds or wanted an extra happy ending.

    15. One of Mercedes Lackey s earlier novels, but well worth a read The story is well written, and sucks you in so you don t want to put the book down till you ve finished It has a nice take on the different races of the world, each complex and written with a good amount of complexity, which is not something you see everyday.

    16. I really liked how this series ended.So many times I find myself unsettled by the inability to merge reality and fiction at the end It seems that is the hardest part of a book or series, the end Ms Lackey and Mr Mallory did a phenomenal job on this series Kudos.

    17. This book was great until the ending The last chapter was a missed opportunity The great love tense ended in a fizzle, otherwise the rest of the book was still worth reading

    18. The third of the Obsidian Mountain trilogy, a fantastic story that involved conquering demons, talking unicorns, dragons and elven mages, and human sacrifices of all sorts.

    19. I waited with bated breath for this sequel to arrive at the library The world Lackey created here was so vibrant, I couldn t wait to find out how the story ended.

    20. This was a seriously amazing book Everything is so in depth There were some really sad parts I still wonder why Kellen s mage price and idalia s weren t the same but maybe his was worded differently in the first book and I just didn t pay attention I absolutely loved the ending I hope to read in this bookverse and I m really happy my library had at least the audio book.

    21. More dithering on the part of the main characters Suddenly, the authors realize they must close out the trilogy and rush the conclusion in 100 pages Disappointing.

    22. After the great spell of Kindolhinadeltil s Mirror, Kellen learns that Wild Magic and High Magick working together will kill the immortal Demons With the harshest winter in a very long time only half over, the war is harder to battle and win.Kellen is still strongly attracted to Vestakia and bonded to Shelkan with the Price of a year and a day of chastity and celibacy Vestakia remains with the Elven army working with the Crystal Spiders to find the final enclave of Shadowed Elves They remind me [...]

    24. A great end to the trilogy One of the great things about these was the romantic aspects were kept subtle, and important to the plot.

    25. This is an amazing book and series My favorite part of the series is the characters The authorsMercedes Lackey andJames Mallory did an incredible job at character development Every character has an arch and struggles, and it is easy to fall in love with every character I even found myself feeling bad for the Demons Every character has their quirks, which are hillarious and add bright humor to the dark war Every question and difficulty is answered and tied nicely, but properly, not with a little [...]
