Faith Hunter: Host by Faith Hunter

epub book Host by Faith Hunter BY Faith Hunter –

Ages or I m going to flip a biscuit Update bookseries finished Urgh my brain I m just going to say that Post Apocalyptic fantasy is not my cup of tea I m still not sure I understood what the hell happened If another book comes out I m going to pass Hahahahahahahaha Thorn gets a new buddy in Host This one was sent from her former home the New Orleans Enclave Yes the one that threw her out in the first place Cheran Jones is a prissy and arrogant metal mage whose duty is to instruct Thorn in the arts of diplomacy Apparently she s not polished One Con Glory enough to represent the neo mages in Mineral Cityven if she s been too busy hiding killing demon spawn and containing the Dragon to worry about media relations Along with the Seraphs the Earth Invasion Heretics her Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows ex husband the town preacher and all the colorful cast members in the series Thorn must now defeat the succubus ueen if they are to live to see another dayI like Thorn She tries to do the right thing she really really does But when the right thing is asinine or completely objectionable she redefines the meaning of right tonsure that her loved ones her friends and The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) even the townspeople who don t care for her much are as safe as she can make them Host is a satisfying conclusion to the Rogue Mage series I m kinda hoping for Thorn though Warning This review contains massive spoilers I reveal thend of the bookIn many ways this book fell into familiar patterns Darkness attacks Thorn and Co beat it only to have an Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, even worse Darkness rise upThe book also suffers theveryone is in love with the protagonist who is in love with A Fairly Honourable Defeat everyone problem I d pick Eli He knows what s he s getting into and wants it anyway They seem to have genuine non mage heat induced chemistry The attraction between Thadd Thorn seems to be mostly hormonal There seemed to be in the first two books but that s notvident here Lucas apparently has great charisma but I ve never felt it Thorn knows he will never be faithful so despite shared history I d say be done with him However I like that Thorn is not described as beautiful In fact she now has so many scars from various battles that she is definitely not beautiful which lessens my annoyance with veryone being in lovelust with her Eli and Lucas lean toward love I think Thadd is mostly lust and since it s completely beyond his control that helps too I njoyed the political intrigue and the useless visaI really liked Eli s uestion about whether we d automatically assume that the Seraphs were the good guys if they were ugly and the Darkness was beautiful It is amazing that the Seraphs killed 6 billion people and yet humans assume they re good I hope the EIH is wrong I dig the idea of it being a religious thing that wasn t uite what anyone Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue expected Besides if they re right why does scripture bother Darkness I m conflicted about Hunter addressing homophobia I liked that Rupert and Audric are or less accepted but I always thought it was unbelievable that they re branding people for swearing drinkingtc and yet leaving homosexuals alone Today the far right would have blamed them for the apocalypse happening in the first place Also feminists Though for a very traditional society there seems to be remarkable parity between the sexesHerein lies the The Man Without a Face end of the book Read at your perilIt was really the last 30 or so pages that made the novel for me I didn t care all that much about Rose or whether she could be rescued it actually seemed like a pressing concern in the first two books but Rupert s death was terrible and tragic His final Audric was heart breaking I loved them togetherEven so I was glad that once Rupert had died he couldn t be brought back Doing so would have lessened the impact of his death It would have cheapened it and his sacrificeI couldn t help wishing it was a character I cared less about Lucas Failing that I would have taken Thadd I liked him a lot in previous books but his presence here was almost nonxistentI understand why it had to be Rupert It sets Thorn against Rose and I would imagine it at least distances Audric from Thorn Intellectually he probably knows it s not her fault but motionally it s a different story I think hi. Al City from a fallen seraph of the underworld Thorn St Croix finds herself finally accepted albeit warily Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs and who could be her greatest ally or her most dangerous foeBut a terrible danger threatens Mineral City The bonds of the Dragon have been loose.

The Rogue Mage series is complicated sometimes to the point of being hard to follow but the story is interesting The last book did leave a lot of unanswered uestions nough to make me wonder why she hasn t written another book to completely wrap up this story Even the things that did get wrapped up were only half answered like what happened to Lo Lo Is Rose Gone (Gone, evil What s the deal with the lynx What s the deal with amethyst and the wheels and the snake Why don t witches have souls Are theyver going to get souls I personally think Faith s newer series Jane Yellowrock is much better Did you Threads Of The Shroud ever go to the movies and buy a too big popcorn then find yourself 30 minutes later giving a ueasy look at the bottom of thempty bucket and thinking jeez why did I That s how I feel after reading this series It was All Seated on the Ground entertaining but not at all nutritious and I shouldn t have overdone it like that Host finishes up all the Rogue Mage books to date currently a trilogy There aren t current plans to write to the series and since this one was published around 2010 it doesn t seem like it would happen anytime soon if at allWith that in mind this book does wrap up the main arc of the initial 3 books very well You won t be left on a razor sdge when you close the book and while I m not going to put any spoilers in this review I will say this This book Untitled. ends DARK This trilogy is not the feel good trilogy winner of the past few years by any means That s not a bad thing at all but it s definitely notveryone s cup of tea The imagery in this book is incredible In the final third it reads like a modern version of Revelations with the amount of seraphs doing battle between our xistence and the between time space they can flit around to We get to the source of a lot of the big bad uglies we ve been dealing with and Thorn gets some very big surprises hardly any of them good A new neo mage shows up as well with an unhealthy interest in the goings on of Mineral City Thorn has way too much to worry about without adding a possible backstabber to the ranks As if that isn t nough The Dragon has finally woken up What impressed me most in the span of these three books was how much Thorn utterly changes and grows as a character Her Against All Odds entire life living in hiding is uprooted and by acknowledging and accepting what she is as a neo mage she can never go back to it again There is an incredible sense of loss in that for her and as a reader it helps ground you in the midst of all the strangeness that is this book with the relate able feelings of irreversible change Her friendships and idea of family are pushed to the absolute brink and the town she stands in at thend of the third book is nothing like the one she rides back into at the start of the first For a trilogy that never leaves the confines of a small post Apocalyptic mining town in the Appalachians this is a huge achievement Overall I don t feel this is written as tightly as Faith Hunter s Jane Yellowrock series and I didn t xactly like seeing as much repeated imagery as I did be it in manners of speech certain descriptive vocabulary or location To my knowledge these aren t supposed to take place in the same universe so that definitely pulled me out of the immersion of this new world than I d like That being said the concepts at play here are amazing If you are a fan of anything angel related lore behind the Book of Enoch or Revelations or ven some lite sci fi supernatural stuff there s a lot here for you in this trilogy The writing is fantastic as are the descriptions It sneaks up on you how much you care for this cast of characters and I know I was left deep in thought after the last page Definitely check this out It s not terribly long in terms of page count and it s very uniue It s not perfect but still a worthwhile investment I m still feeling like a moron trying to read this series I think it has too much going on and I m having a hard time keeping track of it all Whether or not they are in Mineral City The Realm of Light or in the here not here I m still confused as shit What is up with those wheels anyway And all the The DOS eyes and the cobra There better be some answers in the next 50 In a post apocalyptic ice agenvisioned by Faith Hunter in Bloodring and Seraphs humans continue their fight to survive amid the warlike forces of Light and Darkness and struggle to understand the seraphic and demonic beings who have invaded their worldAfter risking her life to save the residents of Miner.

S duty would keep him bound to her but I know things will be strained between them I m not sure their friendship will survive I also think the narrative was at a point where a greater sacrifice was called for Audric is too important to the story line to die and possibly Hunter realized that Lucas wouldn t have the same impact But as terrible as Audric s life has been I wanted him to be happy And he was happy with RupertLike Thorn I hate Rose though it s no Rose s fault than it is Thorn s and intellectually I know that Rupert would have died ither way since the Seraphs were already going into heat He was beyond saving and had Rose not taken his life his death would not have been as meaningful and they may have fallen to the Dark But irrational as it is I blame her Rupert s death was necessary but damn if it doesn t hurt like hell The overall plot arc that began in bloodring is concluded really well in this book Most of the uestions are the dragondarkness type monsters is concluded and answered Yet while im happy with this Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism ending at the same time im not I need there to be another set of books in this world following thorn and friends theres still too many unanswered uestions about characters and the world Such as are the Seraphs really aliens Is there really a one true god in this world and will wever see him Also I want thorn to meet said one true god Are the darkness things really just missunderstood like thorn was thinking at the Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils end of this book Will the Seraphs leave now the war is over How will the town rebuild Will thorn have to go back to annclave after her visa is up or will the town demand she stay will she have little kylenmage kids with thadd and who will she Payment Due end up withAnd most of all what kind of supernats are lucas and cianna I want to knowwwww If theres another book I will like this one a lot As a result of her new Seraphic visa and station her birth Enclave sends a metal magemissary named Cheran to train Thorn However she immediately realizes there is than meets the Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, eye to the pompous Cheran and she senses a underlying current of danger from him While she is trying to juggle the demands from the different organizations due to her new position and trying to figure out how to rescue her twin the Succubus ueen makes a reappearance threatening the ones she loves When the attack turns deadly the trapped uses that death power tos I struggled through this one and didn t Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, enjoy it nearly like I did the previous two in the series Close On The Heels Of Book 2 BuuuuutHunter s mythology with angels and demons and mages is shaping up prettyxcitingly buuuuuuuuuut takes deep breath the protagonist Thorn St Croix is kinda sorta starting to really um annoy me just a tad maybe a little than a tad how about tod is that The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, even a word well let s just go with it just a tod In this case I can t be sure if it s the author s way of making Thornasier to relate to but to me someone who stands around and watches while people are getting hurtkilled and a child is in immediate danger and they have the power to do something but instead don t do anything but just stand there and narrateobservepick their nose is someone that needs to be slapped and not looked upon with any kind of respect or awe Yeah sure she s something differentuniuepowerfulooohahhhh what urban fantasy girl isn t nowadays but you know what none of that is actually powerful if the person who s supposed to be powerful is a dud It seems like all Thorn Turbulence ever does in a crunch is panic and freeze or maybe because the author is taking the time to describe what s going on in detail and forgetting to show us what Thorn is doing at the same time we re just assuming that she s standing there for precious minutes at a time doing I don t know nothing but whatever it is I really don t like it Something is missing whether it s a sense of realistic urgency or setting genuine priorities characters just don t seem to be acting the way you would in dire circumstances granted people are unpredictable but come on not THAT undpredictable It irks meAnd apparently it s a continuing series and doesn tnd with Book 3 which I mistakenly thought What the flagnodd Onward.
