Definitely a mid-series book, there are a lot of things being set up and slowly uncovering things that will change the future. It's interesting but really does not stand alone and to be honest I was lost occasionally because it's been a while since the last book, and it will be a while until I can get around to the next one in the series. But I am curious about what is going to happen to several of the characters and if they will survive the events that are rolling forward towards them.
It's a complex and involving read with several points of view and a lot of politics in this world where women are in many ways held superior to men, it almost feels like Europe but it's different and the magic is complex. People also don't recover from trauma quickly and they have echoes for a while.
I do want to know how this resolves. ( )

The 3rd book in the Crown of Stars series continues where the previous book left off. It goes much deeper into the overall plot of the series, hinted at in the previous books. I enjoyed this book the most of the 3 so far. The main problem with this book is that a decent part of the book is written in italics. I find italics difficult to read, especially when it is pages and pages of it. I often found myself skimming through those parts. ( )

the story continues. A little sadder than the others, with people finding out stuff they wished they hadn’t. Also, homosexuality among priests and the like is there. ( )

I grew frustrated by the numerous characters and slow patches, and gave up on the series after this book. I liked many of the characters and the world building, but this series fell into too many of the traps of Epic Fantasy (I'm looking at you, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, and even GRRMartin) for me to perservere. Perhaps someday I'll go back to it. ( )

ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.

The Crown of Stars series is well-thought out and obviously well-planned. It's epic in scope and it's got a lot of texture. There are many complex characters who we follow in parallel, as in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. Some of them are very likable, and there are some really excellent villains (e.g., Hugh). Ms. Elliott's creatures are imaginative and enjoyable, and I especially liked the way they interact with the humans. Ms. Elliott uses a lot of description and therefore her plot moves very slowly (again, similar to WOT).

The writing was inconsistent throughout the series. Sometimes it seems brilliant, but at other times I'd think "why did she tell me that?" or "this could be moving a little faster." It's often wordy. Her editor could have almost arbitrarily taken out a third of the sentences with no ill effect. Sometimes she over-explains what a character is feeling or his/her motivation when it would have been better to let the dialog or action speak for the character. Sometimes she tells me something too many times (e.g., "but his voice always sounds like that"). I wonder if the inconsistency is due to different editing processes, because it's not like that in all the books, and even some individual books are internally inconsistent. I thought the fourth book, especially, was not well edited.

The pace of these novels is so slow that I found my self bogged down in the middle of book 5 with not much desire to go on, so I decided to quit. I struggled with that decision because I really did want to find out what happened to the characters, but it was taking me too long to get there and the writing style wasn't good enough to make up for the crawling pace (unlike Wheel of Time).

Overall, these books entertained me for a while, especially the first couple of novels. The plot was interesting and the characterization was particularly notable, but it eventually got too slow. I quit in the middle of book 5.
