Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Khat, a member of a humanoid race created by the Ancients to survive in the Waste, and Sagai, his human partner, are relic dealers working on the edge of society, trying to stay one step ahead of the Trade Inspectors and to support Sagai's family. When Khat is hired to find relics believed to be part of one of the Ancients' arcane engines, they are both reluctant to become involved. But the request comes from the Warders, powerful mages who serve Charisat's Elector.

Khat soon discovers that the deadly politics of Charisat's upper tiers aren't the only danger. The relics the Warders want are the key to an Ancient magic of unknown power, and, as all the inhabitants of Charisat know, no one understands the Ancients' magic.

3.0 su 5 stelle Too much exposition 12 giugno 2016
Di CBx - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is a fine book with interesting history and concepts that never really came together for me. I kept reading to know how it turned out, but it felt much longer than it actually was (I was eyeing the Kindle percent completion the whole time). Even as the book neared its conclusion, the author stopped to describe aspects of the setting or society, which broke any narrative tension that had built. The main characters did not really develop - Khat was the outsider who got beat up for being different but was deadly in his own right, Sagai was the poor learned man with a good heart and a family, and Elen was the self-doubting rich girl with unreliable powers. What romance there was felt shoe-horned in, and the way the main characters interacted with new characters didn't always make sense. As other reviewers have noted, it felt like a sequel was being set up only to conclude on an odd note.
My least favorite aspect was definitely the Kindle edition, which had numerous typos, spacing errors, and seemed to be missing some breaks within the chapter.
5.0 su 5 stelle Magic and suspense in the post-apocalyptic desert 7 marzo 2017

I was introduced to this book by my partner, as it is her favorite. I am so glad I took up her suggestion. This story is intense. It was hard for me to pick just one 'mood descriptor' from the review list - hopeful, dark, nostalgic, light-hearted, suspenseful, thoughtful, this book is all of those things. The characters are complex, interesting, compelling, and likable (or hate-able, if we're talking about a bad guy - of which there are very few 'true' ones). Everyone has their reasons. The fantasy race of krismen are well thought out and different enough from 'just a humanoid' to be very interesting. This will keep you on the edge of your seat and is nearly impossible to put down. An excellent story in the fantasy genre, I would recommend this to just about anyone old enough to read a book that alludes to sex.

Of note, there is another book called City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare. That is NOT AT ALL THE SAME BOOK and be careful when purchasing!

Not bad. I'm a fan of Ms. Wells' Raksura books and decided to try some of her other work. It's a decent story, but can't match Moon and Jade and the other Raksura.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very original and enjoyable read 19 giugno 2013

It seems that every Amazon fantasy recommendation I get these days involves a coming-of-age story of young boy destined to fight an ancient evil.

This book is a refreshing change of pace. It creates a very intriguing, post-Apocalyptic world where life is harsh unless you are one of the privileged few. Within that world, there are some very interesting characters, some from a privileged background and the main characters from the lower segments of society - Khat belongs to a mutant/engineered race called Kris, who arent even accepted as having souls, by most of society. So from a worldbuilding point of view, this creates a really, really fresh background for the story.

The story itself is told quite differently as well - unlike a "omg, we must do X, Y, Z or the Dark Lord will take over the world" type of quest, the characters - and the reader - muddle along without knowing what's at stake: that is only revealed towards the end. The scale of this story is much smaller than "save the world"... it is Khat's struggle to save himself from whatever machinations he's gotten into. So yeah, in that context, the grand denouement isnt as taut or climactic as in other stories, but i dont see that as a fault: that is very much in keeping with the scale of the book.

And yes, between the original world setting and an equally original story that flows with ease and ample development, this is a book that was very hard to put down. I was hooked by page 3.

I rarely give books 5-stars but this is definitely a 5-star read for fantasy buffs, IMO.

4.0 su 5 stelle A Mostly Great Novel 20 dicembre 2011
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A very original fantasy novel that pushes the line between genre fiction and denser literature. I absolutely loved this book. I thought the setting was fantastic, and original. Wells did a great job describing it and making it something I could see, feel, smell, and even taste. Think post-Apocalyptic desert with giant poisonous creatures and beautiful kangaroo people. The characters were fun, multi-dimensional, and seemed, well, like real people. But, unlike many heroes and heroines, people I would actually like to meet (the good guys and not the bad guys, of course).

As an adventure story, it did have a touch of Indiana Jones--including the fast pace, archaeologist/treasure hunter characters, and hints of irreverent humor in the face of action and adventure that made those movies so fun. However, I'm not saying that City of Bones was a knock off in any way, shape, or form. Wells definitely stretched her imagination to create these characters and the plot is entirely something else, and something (in my opinion) that's an absolute rip roaring good time.

My only complaint, and what kept me from giving this book 5 stars, was honestly the ending. The plot concluded, but--emotionally--I didn't feel enough closure concerning the relationships between the characters. It almost felt like the set-up for a sequel, but (alas) Ms. Wells's webpage states that there never was and are no current plans for any such thing.

Note to Ms. Wells: If you do ever write a sequel, and give me more closure, I am perfectly willing to upgrade this to 5++.
