Tower Lord summary Ñ 108 Or those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do The Faith has been sundered and many have no doubt who their leader should be The new King is weak but his sister is strong The blood song is powerful rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand of its mysteries Something moves against the Realm something that commands mighty forces and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a swor. This was even better than Blood Song Telling the story from the perspective of four POV characters was a masterstroke It gave the book a epic feel and added depth to characters like Lyrna and Fretis It also introduced a great new character in Reva The story was a bit dark since if focused around repelling an invasion by the Valorian Empire but there was enough humor mystery and romance to keep things from getting too bleak I really loved this and the series has become a new favorite I cannot wait for the next installmentRating 5 stars

Tower Lord summary Ñ 108 In Blood Song Anthony Ryan introduced readers to “a fascinating world of conflicting religions and the wars fought in the name of those faiths” Library Journal Now Ryan’s epic tale continues as Vaelin Al Sorna discovers that there is no escape from the call of destiny “The blood song rose with an unexpected tune a warm hum mingling recognition with an impression of safety He had a sense it was welcoming him home” Vaelin Al Sorna warrior of the Sixth Order called Darkblade called Hope Killer The greatest warrior of his day and witness to t. Rating 255I was lucky to to have just finished Blood Song recently and to my utter delight its seuel Tower Lord was due for release not long after I was excited There would be no year long wait to see what happens to Vaelin as he journeys back home after 5 long years of absence The book description only served to heighten my appetite as it sounded like Vaelin would have to face hardships tough decisions and grave responsibilities aheadIt s unfortunate that after all the excitement I couldn t but feel a bit cheated with Tower Lord I feel deceived because the title and the inner jacket synopsis is very misleading By reading the book description you d expect the book to be centered on Vaelin s exploits as the titular Tower Lord There isn t an inkling that the so called Tower Lord would in fact only be featured in a mere 25% of the book There are also no indications that the story would turn Vaelin s story as the Tower Lord into of a sideshow while dividing the rest of its attention to 3 other character s stories Nope there s absolutely no mention of any of the other POV characters in the blurb at all So to say I was caught off guard is putting it mildlyStill after the initial confusion I continued on hoping the different POVs would somehow converge and tie in with Vaelin s I had hoped each story would be an individual thread that would eventually come together with Vaelin s acting as the center and weave a brilliant tapestry Sadly the flames of hope never became anything but a pitiful smoulder Rather than using the other POVs to compliment Vaelin s story or to do some inter character development along side him the POVs for the most part were separate and didn t have much to do with each other I have nothing against books with multiple POVs but when the first book is written entirely in one person s point of view a sudden change in format like this must be dealt deftly since most people can get really attached to the main voice Perhaps my opinions would have been different if I didn t just finish reading Blood Song and had time to distant myself from Vaelin s voice but as it stands I m still very much attached to him I wanted to see of Vaelin and not have him only occupy a uarter of the book That and often doing some pretty mundane things as well Needless to say I felt these new POVs took away too much focus from his story All of Vaelin s efforts and heroism from the last book felt trivialized and pushed aside for these characters I cared less about Also a huge draw of Blood Song for me was the camaraderie between Vaelin and his Sixth Order brothers but unfortunately that was barely to be found here Caenis for instance was someone I was very interested to see a POV from but he was not given one and had a relatively minor role Not to mention his cold attitude towards Vaelin felt abrupt Frentis is my second favourite character from Blood Song and I was ecstatic he got his own POV However after a few chapters from him I started to find myself skimming through his story hoping he would view spoilertriumph over his ordeal already and meet up with Vaelin so they can kick some major butts together That never happened To my frustration their journeys never intersected at all hide spoiler

Tower Lord summary Ñ 108 He greatest defeat of his nation King Janus’s vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie Sick at heart he comes home determined to kill no Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus’s grateful heir he can perhaps find peace in a colder remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm But those gifted with the blood song are never destined to live a uiet life Many died in King Janus’s wars but many survived and Vaelin is a target not just f. Sale Alert Kindle Daily Deal 27Jul20 199Reread before the final book releasePossible Minor Spoilers for BloodSongWhile Bloodsong is completely Vaelin s journey The Tower Lord opens up of this world by showing the story from multiple PoVs This was good and bad for me as I am so attached to Vaelin that having to share this book with other characters meant I missed him for a lot of it The other PoVs are good and some I liked than others but with most books that have shifting PoV chapters it takes a while for all the stories to build and really pick up momentum But when things get rolling they really get rollingBooks with multiple PoVs storylines are the hardest books for me to write reviews for Things shift so much in the story with some people intersecting and others not but still holding relevance to some of the other people and places and how do you convey that in a review but not give importance things awayAHHHHH The Story Again at the beginning of each Part of The Tower Lord the reader is in the present with the historian Vernier He is in a somewhat different position than in the first book now a slave for the enemy and at their disposal to record the upcoming victory of a city under siege Even though we all know where the story will eventually lead it isn t clear until the very end again how it will all play out It is a great way to create tension for the characters in the story from the very beginning Remember this ueen when you watch the flames rise high remember this and ask yourself would I do this again The Volarian s with help from The Ally have come to the Unified Realm to conuer and enslave its people It is a plan that has been in the works for longer than most have been alive and so many pieces must fall into place Unlike the Unified Realm the Volarians have no fear of using the dark to obtain their goals If Vaelin is to help a new friend Reva Lyrna or the Realm that he has already given up so much for he will need the help of some old friends and unite a few new ones along the way It is time for Vaelin to be not only the Darkblade and Beral Shar Ur but also earn some new names including The Lord of Blades The Characters Vaelin While this is still a lot of his story because he had to share time with other PoVs I really missed him He is still a compelling character His time spent alone in prison was well spent learning his song It was as much a character in this book as he was Vaelin always has many parts to his section of the story He is a warrior true but he is a man who doesn t want to war again if possible He doesn t long for battle in fact most of the time he is really doing everything he can to avoid it His true wants are simple the family he was denied in the form of a sister peace if possible and to find his lost brother Frentis Justice he said as the mirth faded I looked for justice once from a scheming old man He gave it to me and all I had to give him was my soul Destiny seems to always get in his way though and the bloodsong plays on helping to lead the way He will earn even names and fulfill even prophecies Reva Her chapters were some of the most interesting to me Bastard daughter of the Trueblade she has been shaped to a fanatical devotion of the World Father and what some believe he would want She has one of the most interesting journeys as she is taken in and trained by the Darkblade himself then set back out into the world a little broken and looking for answers Pardon me Reva said pausingHe was a tall man and she was obliged to look up at him though not tall enough to be out of reach Your nose appears to be bleeding He frowned fingers coming up to touch his nose coming away clean I don t His head snapped back from the force of the blow nose breaking though not with enough force to kill him He stumbled backwards to collide with the wall sinking to the floor blood streaming down his face My mistake Reva said moving on Now it s bleeding Her journey to find the truth of her past and carve her future was almost as good as Vaelin s journey in Bloodsong She is a force to be reckoned with and a powerful surprise in a small package Frentis Oh poor Frentis His fate at the end of Bloodsong was unknown and the last five years have not been kind to him I loved and hated his chapters all at the same time He has been with the enemy for these last five years in the fighting pits It seems that One Eye left him with a gift that just keeps on giving and the Volarians know how to use it against him He is forced to travel with the woman who has a story probably darker than most and she is bat shit crazy She is the reason the chapters are difficult to read but at the same time you can t get enough She is the deadliest woman in the realm possibly any realm and Frentis is forced to help her in her dastardly deeds He both sympathizes with her and hates her at the same time He looked away and she moved closer her arms slipping around his waist as her head rested on his shoulder I m going to kill you he said You must know that She kissed his neck and for once he didn t flinch though he had the freedom to do so Then beloved she said in a whisper breath hot on his neck you would doom yourself and every soul in this world She is monstrous and crazy and probably the lesser or all the evils presented but it is still an evil terrible than most can imagine Lyrna spends most of her time traveling that usually isn t my favorite fantasy trope which is probably why I liked her sections the least She was so smart and slightly cold in the last book that I wasn t sure what to make of her She has changed a bit from Bloodsong Lyrna is still the exceptionally smart Keschet player looking at the long game she isn t as ruthless as she once was it seems a decision she made in Bloodsong might have changed her than she realized It must have been hard he said reclining on his stool his smile now genuine Hard my lord Shield Keschet is very simple in essence Not the game Pretending all those years Not being you After all who wants the keenest mind in the room to be the princess in the corner I really enjoy roles with strong women in them and Anthony Ryan has created uite a few between Lyrna Reva Davoka Veliss and Dahrena Each plays a pretty strong part in the story Lyrna s story is only a less interesting due to the fact the other story lines are stronger She is traveling searching out answers about The Dark and negotiating peace with the Lornak Later she is traveling on a ship I lose interest sometimes when plot lines go that direction The best part of her story line was the introduction of Davoka a Lornak guide She was the source of much of the comic relief in this dark tale The Lornak ways are interesting and different and she was a fantastic character addition to the story I m sorry I hit you Lyrna said Davoka turned to her with a puzzled frown Sorree Lyrna searched for the Lonak euivalent finding there wasn t one Illeha she said Regret or guilt depending on the inflection Lonakhim hit each other all the time Davoka replied with a shrug If you d tried to knife me things would be different The friendship that built between Lyrna and Davoka was really a great bond and I m hoping to see of them in the next book Overall Honestly this book is full of information great characters wonderful cultures dark deeds and a plethora of adventures This is actually my second time through the book and I picked up even details When a book holds my attention wrapped even on a reread I know that it is good I m rooting so much for Vaelin and at the end he was amazing although I m not sure how he will do what needs to be done in the next book The ending for this was so intense and I was really happy with so much of it Don t be confused though this is a dark fantasy There were deaths of characters I hated and some I loved It is an emotional journey as well as an exciting one and I m not sure all my favorite characters will make it through to the very end but I still hold out all hopeOn to ueen of FireOriginal Read September 2014Buddy read with Athena Armina Gavin and DesisnkaWell it has been months since I finished this and I still can t seem to find the words I want to use to describe how I feel about this series It is so strong and while I missed being with Vaelin all the time the introduction of multiple PoVs made the story grow by leaps and boundsI loved most of itI will attempt a real review when I re read it because we all know I will right before the release of the 3rd book in the series All I can say for now is I like this series a lot and want to read it all over again
