Nters are brief and anticlimactic Ditto Urchaid As was the conclusion of the book really Ruith s solution was far too easy to defeat all the evil and owerful magic that should have been in lay lus what happened to Doire being a magic sink There were spells aplenty And speaking of holes in the lotif Ruith Morgan and Runach all survived the well incident that supposedly killed everyone involved then why shouldn t we think all their siblings survived and are hiding in various castlesfortresses etc Kurland created a lot of interesting lacesWegner and Nicholas s castles Hearn s horse stables then the hidden cave set up we see briefly here But we skim Mama Ds pasta pizza past them The characters would have to be interesting to take full advantage of the settings anyway Other reviews say there will be a third trilogy I m not sure if I will check it outwe ll see if the description when it comes outulls me in enough to lure me back into the Nine Kingdoms since right now I ve had my fill of it 5 June 2015 379 on Kindle35 Stars I think Full review to comeAny uestions you had from the first two books answered Fear not all the threads that were hanging are resolved The characters are as always charming and lovable Great scene highly anticipated near the beginning of the book that had me tearing up a bitSome frustrations though Sarah s reluctance to accept and return Ruith s feelings and love got old fairly uickly in this book Her desire to keep him at half an arm s length was disappointing because it was less than Ruith and the Sarah I loved from the The Expected One (Magdalene Line Trilogy, previous books deserved The ending also reminded me a bit of Return of the King by JRR Tolkien Gollum may yet have aart to Betty Fedora Issue One play in thisaraphrase though only very loosely Still it led it to be a bit anti climactic And then there s one Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work plotoint that s bugging me I can t really get into it because it s a huge spoiler but If someone who s read this wants to talk spoilers let me know I had never heard of Lynn Kurland until I came across the first book in the Nine Kingdoms series back in 2009 She writes historicaltime travel romance and that s not a genre I readThis is the last book in this trilogy and the sixth book in this series I really really wanted to love it The first three books Star of the Morning The Mage s Daughter and Princess of the Sword have become three of my favorite books While they are not as detailed or intricate as most fantasy books I read I fell in love with Morgan and Miach and their story I heavily recommend the first three books for anyone who likes clean romance with a good story set in a fantastic world I had such high hopes for the next trilogy set in this world Maybe I got too emotionally attached to the first set of characters but I just couldn t get as into this story It wasn t Jazz Ukulele poorly written in fact the writing is beautiful but the first book A Tapestry of Spells just didn t catch my interest as well as I expected I enjoyed it but I just wasn t that excited about it if that makes sense However the second book Spellweaver redeemed this trilogy for me I came to like the main characters of this story almost as much as those for The first trilogy and anxiously waited for the conclusion to their storyGift of Magic was released on January 3 2012 my birthday I immediately ordered it for my NOOK and read it in one sitting Again as I have come to expect from Lynn Kurland therose was beautiful throughout Unfortunately I was left with a feeling of disappointment in this volume The characters in this book just felt much less substantial to me The story felt like it rushed through to it s conclusion and it felt like it wrapped up just a little too neatly Of course I expected a happy ending but there was very little tension The final battle felt anticlimactic I would give this 3 out of 5 stars for the Off 13 prose and because I am attached to this world but I feltblahwhen this book came to an end There will be one last trilogy set in this world and I hope it better done than this one I m not going to lie I am a little disappointed in Gift of Magic This is the book that I have been Someone but by whom she cannot tell Sarah's gift of sight only allows her to see the spells themselves not theerson behind them A reluctant sorcerer still learning to trust his own magic Ruithneadh of Ceangail knows he's woefully unprepared for the adversaries they'll face But he and Sarah must collect and destroy his father Gair's spells soon Many mages seek their ower and in the wrong hands.

Aiting for This was the book that was going to make all the wait worthwhile This was going to be Ruith and Sarah s chance to shine But I don t think it is I think that in the world of the Nine Kingdoms Ruith and Sarah are destined to be shadows And for me from my lace as captain of Team Ruith it is a little upsettingSo we left Sarah and Ruith at a retty good spot At the end of Spellweaver Ruith had admitted his feelings for Sarah made it clear he wanted to marry her and she had tentatively accepted But first they knew they would have to finish their uest The ages from Gair s book would need to be collected and then destroyed But Sarah and Ruith knew they needed to do this together Her sight and his magic were the only way that they would be able to complete their uest and save the Nine Kingdoms from the threat of evilFor the full review Juice please go to In one word this book was a disappointing finish to the story of Ruithneadh and Sarah inarticular and the tale of the Nine Kingdoms is generalIt s not that the story wasn t well told It was The writing was truly beautiful and the world sprawled out like only epic fantasy can and the names were right It is a et eeve of mine to read fantasy with names that sound fake it spoils the whole story Well the names of Gudrun people andlaces in this series although unpronounceable fit Mob Mistress perfectly So it was good book It could easily have been a four or five star book but it ended up a three becauseit was just an anticlimax Really it was The whole epic culmination of the novel was just blah In addition the book had way too much repetition Since book four Ruith had been whining about his magic Oh look at meoor boy I am a Stud in the Stacks powerful magician but my dad was evil Never mind that everyone else in my family tree is a wonderful noble incorruptibleerson and I aspire to be like them my dad was really evil so I ll be evil too Woe is me woe is me That was Ruith from book 4 when he was introduced to the final 10% of this book when he realizes that he s nothing like his dad Duh And every 15 seconds we were being reminded that he spent time running around with Miach of Neroche being troublesome and stealing spells when they were 10 years old Every fifteen seconds It happened over 20 years ago and was repeated ad nauseum through the series even from Miach s section so that makes 6 books through which we ve been hearing this It became annoying after the 3rd mention in the first book And we also heard way too much about Miach This wasn t his book and he didn t have any substantial Choosing to Survive part tolay i just didn t see the need to be reminded of him every few Robin Hood pages Sarah also just spent half the book whining about not having any magic even though she could dreamweave and going on and on about not beingrincess enough for Ruith even though her mom and dd came from distinguished royal families every fifteen seconds too ArghI think this might be the end of the Nine Kingdoms series in which case I m sad to Felipa part with a great cast of characters and a good epic story but this ending didn t do it s characters or the series much justice at all ETA No it s not the end of the series I hear tell Ms Kurland is working on a set of books for Runach So we ll see them again I was incrediblyleased that this was heaps better than the last two books in the series It totally captured my interest from start to finish and I couldn t be happier about it It was so interesting to finally see both groups merge together and meet each other it made for some uite interesting situations And then the chase for the spells and what finally awaited them at the end of the trail was just mind blowing It was kind of hinted at all along but I honestly didn t see how it could really happen The way it came about was believable though and I definitely can t wait to continue with this series and see where it goes from here 45 starsSlightly disappointed by this book I was expecting of Sarah s heritage as well as Ruith and Sarah s growing romance Although the book was captivating something was missingAND I totally knew view spoilerThoir hide spoile.

I have been caught up in this series for awhile now and enjoyed every minute of it This the third book of the second trilogy each trilogy featuring a different couple but they are taking Crisis of the Strauss Divided place almost at the same time and in the same world The characters both the major and the minor ones are interwoven between the stories I have read some reviews of these books fromeople who did not care for them but they seem to very often just not be their kind of books This series is a romance but a they are sweet and chaste not torrid and earth shattering like so often found in romance novels these days In a way they are simple except that the stories are complex with many goods and evils running back and forth throughout So what is simple The slow developing The Master Masons of Chartres predictable and yet beautiful romances between the two main characters I just liked being along for the ride and could not wait for a bit of time toick the booksup again I loved the complex names that I mostly could not VARSITY ABDL (Age Play, Forced Regression, Enema, Domestic Discipline, Spanking Romance) pronounce but they slid nicely across my mind In my mind s eye I could see the amazing Nine Kingdoms with magic gently flowing from fingertips and then often crashing through walls I suppose this all comes down to the fact I really enjoy this author s way of combining a clean romance with magic and fantasy In this book we follow once Sarah and Ruith on their uest to find and destroy his father Gair s spells The mystery of who is the real enemy and how to stop him comes to a climax in this book and I will not do a spoiler here Again Miach enters into this story and I would be lying if I did not admit he is my favorite character in this series I will re read I am sure many times the first three books and the story of Miach and Morgan Ruith is Morgan s brother and long ago boyhood friend of Miach but he was for many years thought to have died along with hisarents at the well where his father called forth the blackest of magic This was my favorite of the trilogy featuring Sarah and Ruith I thought the series was over when I finished this one but no there is one book out Dreamspinner It is the first of the next trilogy and the story of Runach brother to Morgan and Ruith I hope there are many I would like a book about Weger a very uniue character who is in all of these books This is a series I have very much enjoyed reading and after the next book I suppose I will have to wait It was nice to read them all together This book just wasn t up to the same standards as the rest of the series Problems were solved too uickly and easily Okay so I really love Lynn Kurland s writingusually I had a hard time with this book Like a lot of Road House - The Novel people I read her books right when they come out So I have read tons of books in the meantime and had a really really hard time keeping track of who was who The beginning of the book really needs a map to help us keep track of where we are have been and going AND it would have been nice to have some sort of genealogy sheet at the beginning or end to remind us who is who like she has in her de Piaget MacLeod series I will have to re read the last two books and then maybe change my rating I haven t been impressed with the second Nine Kingdoms trilogy so it was no surprise I didn t care for the final book I got tired of things being blatantly stated and then twoaragraphs later everyone is startled by the same revelation Or the never ending admiration for everyone s beauty Or the repeated doubts of overtly stated love Or the fact that everyone is royalty but no one wants to be I was excited that Miach and Morgan showed up but they weren t in it nearly long enough And I clearly wasn t following the Gnosis plotroperly as they were chasing spells on a uest that they could only do alone until they decide eh okay you should help usand then Left to Die-a First Hand Account of Life in the Superdome during Hurricane Katrina pick the onlyeople they don t fully trust And the goal of gathering spells but only to destroy them as a complete setjust destroy them as you get them if they are so dangerous Morag s stint as a bad guy turned out as useless as the bad guy from the first trilogyyou hear about them second hand and the actual encou.
