    another superb entry in the moontideSunsurge series book 7 and I am still expexting any new book with bated breath; picks up where Prince of the Spearshad its devasting finale and continues at a non stop breathless pace with lots of things happening including some shattering ones and obviously an ending that has some conclsuion like all the books in the series to date but with all remaining to be decided in book 4highly reccomended and a top 5 of the year for me

    I picked this one up finally after a fairly long break and I am glad to have got back to the series as it's one I want to finish up and see where it goes I have to say that the first and third in this series are certainly not as strong as the books in the first uartet and I am a little disappointed by that but they're still enjoyable reads on the whole This story focused on all the main PoV characters once again as they endeavour to either rip down or prop up the Empire and fight against the Masks We also get to see a fair few of the new Dwymancers as they connect with one another to both help their friends and maybe even their enemies unknowingly Overall I think that this felt like a slow filler book and although I liked seeing and getting to know Ogre I think the other characters within this don't feel like they get too much development in this particular book I think the final climax will hopefully wrap up a lot of things and I look forward to seeing where it all goes very soon

    Such an underrated series His last seven books have been a formidable achievement Now to wrap it up

    The ups and downs the characters go through in this book have your emotions cycling from plunging the depths to riding high on the waves of victory It seems like every victory brings a new defeat but the resistance to the demon possessed struggles on There is no lack of plot twists in the work of David Hair and yes people can die in the tradition of George RR Martin Well done once again with world building characters and the aforementioned plot I'm looking forward to the next installment

    DeliciousThe saga continues If you have not begun reading this series you are missing out I cannot see this author leaving this world behind for another because I see too many good stories yet to tell With that said this is a great book to add to your summer reading list If you are an avid reader you'll appreciate the length Do start from the beginning of this series or you will find Hearts of Ice hard to follow I patiently await the next installment

    So I've really loved David Hair's writing The moontide uartet is an amazing series with compelling characters and lovingly built world an amazing story and honestly an amazing story telling structure the vexations of emperor constant interludes were great The Sunsurge uartet has been less good for a number of reasons and with this book I decided to get into the details of figuring out why Spoilers below So the first part that I have issues with is the Dwymancy This is an entire very powerful magic system that is never mentioned in the Moontide uartet which honestly seems like a retcon to have this story work Additionally Dwymancy is sooooo much less defined that regular gnostic usage which is very frustrating I absolutely loved the almost painstaking detail that went into gnostic magic that everything had its counter Sure there were exceptions no uestion at all about that but for the most part you knew what the results of various actions would be At the end of this book we have a captured Dwymancer who might be infected with a demon and we know what about that? The fact that the magic is not well defined reduces tension because the author can basically do whatever they want Mr Hair could decide that 3 Dwymancers holding hands and conducting a ritual would banish all demons from Urte larger problem solved The second part that makes this uartet less fun is how terrible almost all of the characters are at least on the personal level In the Moontide uartet we had Alaron Cymbella Ramita Ramon Seth Kazim Elena and Cera Nesti and I may be forgetting some of 'good' charater POVs These characters might not have always done the right things but at least you could root for them to succeed or improve In this series I don't even know I guess we still have Seth and Ramon for what few chapters we have them for a and their sections are great and TaritaPrince name I can't remember now I guess my point is that most of the screen time is taken up by less sympathetic characters Also the big bad of Naxius is just so much less compelling of a story

    Well this was a surprise Who knew that adding another character from the previous books into this series would increase its ualities so much Lyra is still obnoxious and makes even nightmare mistakes of sexual nature this book honestly her POV was the worst one to read for me The author could have written as a better character but here in this series she comes off as a confused adult who just wants somebody to hold her at nightAdmittedly when the story focuses on military combat and in turn Seth Korion Ramon Waar it shines as thats the author forte The Tarita Ogre Jehana POV also was a bit of a slog and mostly an outlet for Tarita to shout out her insecurities The one thing I still don't understand is like man where have the main characters from series 1 gone? The only ones we know of who are actually doing something in the background are Alaron and Ramita the rest Cera Elena and Co just kinda disappeared with Ramon finally making an appearance this book If only instead of those obnoxious Lyra pov's we got these instead The book is going to its endgame now everything is now out in the open and while this book was miles better then book 2 or 1 improvements are needed Like that distasteful twist at the end It was NOT needed SRecommended for a read only if your a fan of the series

    A continuation I was so excited for this book but as I finish it I find myself disappointed because I didn’t love it like I have Hair’s other books It was missing something I can’t put my finger on it but no one stole the show definitely felt like a mid series book

  9. Shana Steele says:

    Oddly around the 300 pages it almost seems like another author took over ualities and backgrounds of main characters were re explained And then all of a sudden things got back on track Hmmm But with that exception a great continuation of the saga

  10. Kathleen says:

    I would have given this book a higher rating except for the gratuitous sex scenes If I want a romance novel I’ll read one Just didn’t feel it was necessary to E that graphic Spoiled the book somewhat for me
