A millennia-old prophecy was given when the Forbidden Ones were driven from Achar. And now, the Acharites witness its manifestation: Achar is under attack by an evil lord from the North, Gorgreal-his ice demons strike from the sky and kill hundreds of brave warriors in the blink of an eye. All Acharites believe the end is near. One young woman, Faraday, betrothed of Duke Borneheld, learns that all she has been told about her people's history is untrue. While fleeing to safety from the dangerous land, Faraday, rides with Axis, legendary leader of the Axe-Wielders-and hated half-brother of Borneheld-and a man Faraday secretly loves although it would be death to admit it. She embarks on a journey, which will change her life forever, in search of the true nature of her people. This grand and heroic story tells the tale of one woman's plight to learn the truth of her people and change their hearts and their minds forever. She fights against oppressive forces to share this reality and will not desist until everyone knows. . . . . The truth of the Star Gate… (lisätietoja)

interesting but takes immorality for granted and as normal. ( )

Ok so I would never have picked up this book if f I had been browsing the shelves. One look at the cover and I’d probably have put it back. Can you blame me? It’s not attractive. The colours are rather dull and washed out. I don’t quite know what those characters are doing.

The thing about The Wayfarer Redemption is that it’s good in a cheesy 80s sort of way. Everyone is remarkably gorgeous, the kind who belong on the catwalk or on the cover of a magazine. Evil is really evil. And good is good. It’s all black and white, with little grey. There’s a prophecy that has the three races of this land Tencendor reunited under the StarMan (yeah, it’s very Ziggy Stardust. Other characters are named StarDrifter and Tree Friend! I mean, Tree Friend, really??). And of course battles and plenty of action against these wraith-like creatures called Skraelings and Skraebolds. There’s also a love affair between the pretties. Essentially it’s pretty much what a decent fantasy book is about. Love and war and the supernatural. It’s quite standard fare. Nothing that pushes the boundaries too much.

Reading The Wayfarer Redemption is like having a nice cup of English Breakfast Tea in the morning. It won’t quite jolt you from the morning sleepies like an espresso will, but it will wake you up gradually enough to get you through the day. And since I do like my English Breakfast Tea, I’m off to request the next book from the library!

One thing that has me a little puzzled though is the titling of this series. The Wayfarer Redemption is also titled as BattleAxe. There is also a trilogy known as The Wayfarer Redemption Trilogy but is actually considered books four to six after the Axis Trilogy. Confused? Yeah so am I. ( )

I started out immensely enjoying this book, but right around the time Axel got his bump & grind on with the little murderess, Douglass lost me. The characters were just too stupid to live and seemed to have no motivation other than blind love and lust. Wouldn't read anything else from this author. ( )

Sara Douglass’s first book, The Wayfarer Redemption: BattleAxe was a great start to what seems to be a very good series. It took me a few chapters before I really got into it, but then I was hooked! I realize there are a lot of negative reviews of the book, but after reading their reviews I disagree with a lot of what people say.

I thought the plot had original aspects, was interesting, and not too complex nor too simple. It is one of the better good vs. evil fantasy books I have read; however, it is pretty much just that. Douglass doesn’t have any gray areas. That doesn’t bother me too much though. It’s just what a basic fantasy book is about and that’s what I like about it. Not to mention that she has all the elements of a good fantasy book including different races, a prophecy, and magic (though it’s a little different than many novels).

Throughout the story there were plenty of little twists, so I didn’t find it to be entirely predictable. Also, I almost found myself crying during some parts! It’s definitely an emotional story.

I also enjoyed the world building. I thought the author did a fantastic job with her descriptions of the places the characters travel. There wasn’t too much detail nor too little. This was important because throughout the entire novel the characters are traveling.

Douglas doesn’t have the greatest of characters, but I enjoyed them nonetheless. I really fell in love with Axis throughout the novel, and I disliked Bornheld with a passion. It was great to actually care about some of the characters, or have feelings toward them (love, hate, etc) because that is what really gets me involved in a story besides a good plot. Axis is the leader of the axewilders and you get to see him change throughout the novel. He is probably the only character in the novel who has decent character development. Once he is no longer under the “protection” of his caregivers he realizes everything that he was taught may be wrong. Faraday is a highborn lady who is betrothed to Duke Borneheld, the half-brother of Axis. She has quite an emotional journey throughout the novel trying to figure out her place in the prophecy and why she had to be chosen.

Axis, Faraday, and Borneheld are the main characters in the story so far. There are others who go along with them on their journey including Axis’s second in command, some Sentinels, and Faraday’s champion, as well as others they meet on the way.

This was one of the few novels I have read where the writing and the dialog are actually good. I didn’t have any problems with it or find anything to be repetitive.

This particular book doesn’t really have an ending so if you want to read the book be prepared to read the trilogy!

I would recommend this novel to any one who loves fantasy! It is not the best fantasy book I have read, but it is still very enjoyable. If you are newer to fantasy this is a great place to start. There is a little violence and some subtle sexual content, but it should be fine for anyone over 16. ( )

The six books of The Wayfarer Redemption are for A. Lynn Martin, Tim Stretton and Frances Thiele, who have regarded with amiable tolerance their colleague's slow drift into the Star Dance.
The books of The Axis Trilogy are for three respectable historians, A.
