In RHAPSODY Elizabeth Haydon tells a story that encompasses a world and centuries of time and which introduces three characters who have already captured a new generation of fantasy fans in the US. They embark on a journey through the centre of their world only to reach its end and find that centuries have passed and the land faces the awaking of a demon. Haydon¿s world building is unusually well thought out and vivid, her magic system is rigorous, her battle scenes realistic and massively exciting. But it is her characters, the intelligent and resourceful Rhapsody, the enigmatic assassin Achmed and the gruff but dependable Grunthor that have captured the imagination and affection of thousands of readers. This is a trio of characters who will carry the first great fantasy series of the 21st century on their shoulders.… (lisätietoja)

This book and its whole series (at least as far as I read; I couldn't stomach it enough to get past book six, The Assassin King) is so insipid and stupid I can't do it justice in a review.

The protagonist, Rhapsody, is a Mary Sue who is so beautiful all men fall over at the sight of her ( apparently only allosexual, heterosexual, and cisgender people exist in this world.) Her love interest, Ashe (or Sam or Gwydion, take your pick) is a domineering creep.

The romance is a ridiculous insta-love that would be only silly and stupid if it had not involved sex with a fourteen-year-old girl (and she was only barely fourteen. It was her fourteenth birthday).

The writing style is purple and melodramatic, and the magic system is supposed to be so amazingly powerful that it can do virtually anything, but it's only used a few times in the whole series up to where I stopped, and then it's stupid. For example, if Rhapsody can only transform people and things by saying their true names, how did she turn back into Rhapsody after turning herself into a raindrop? Do raindrops have vocal chords?

The only characters I could stand were Achmed and Grunthor. They are the only reason the whole series isn't 1 star. ( )

Still a good book, though I was more critical of it this time through than last. ( )

I give up. Haven't touched this in months. Maybe I'll try again at a later date. Just not doing it for me this time.

"Pardon me, but would you be willing to adopt me for a moment? I'd be grateful."

Rhapsody, a trained Singer of some power working on becoming a Namer, is on the run from a sadistic former client, Michael the Wind of Death, who doesn't take no for an answer. During her flight Rhapsody literally runs into a couple of shady characters, two half-breeds also on the run. Not in a position to be picky she begs for their help. What at first is supposed to be a rescue ends up as an abduction. And so begins an epic journey. Rhapsody is dragged across half a continent and through the earth to the other side of the world. Upon emerging the trio discovers 1400 years has passed and nothing will be the same for them again.

Rhapsody is the first in the Rhapsody trilogy and larger Symphony of Ages series. The book has a little bit of everything: action, adventure, romance, magic, mystery. Haydon has a knack for world building that I enjoy. The world has a rich history and mythos. The magic system is music based, playing on the author's love of music.

The fact that the main characters are 1400 years displaced in time sets the stage for a nice mystery as they piece together what's gone on since they left and exactly what has lead up to causing several kingdoms of the current day to be on the brink of war. Did something from the old world survive or is it something brand new?

Haydon's fluid writing style is also fun to read. She keeps things moving through the character's points of view and does not hesitate to jump between characters when other view points are needed. The interplay between the three main characters is entertaining throughout the book.

This is a comfort reread for me as I've read the trilogy many times. I am happy to say the story still stands up since the last time I read it. I will likely continue on to finish the trilogy after the holidays and see if the rest of the books are as I remember. ( )

This series is my favorite fantasy series ever. Haydon starts out slow, but I promise if you get through the first few chapters...you will be fully submerged in her created world. I own every book, and will continue to read anything she writes.

Star-crossed lovers through time go on separate voyages that will leave you always wanting more. This is one of those books impossible to synopsize due to such vast content.

The characters are vastly different, yet come together much like a real family. Hayden gives action, adventure, romance, fantasy, sci-fi, intrigue...everything is in this series. ( )

This one’s a pure romance. If you want an emotional fantasy series with some pretty strong characterization and a well-realized world, Rhapsody is the book you're looking for.
