Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

When Princess Lorelei of Leithe overhears her fiancé’s plot to murder her on the way to their wedding, she does the only smart thing: she runs.

Into the Edgelands, the savage, woodland home of the legendary U’lfer, a race of fierce wolves who walk as men, she knows she is as good as dead, but she would rather be torn apart by werewolves than die by Trystay’s hand.

A young U’lfer warrior named Finn catches her scent on the wind and finds himself possessed by an unnatural desire to shield and protect her from that which hunts her. From the moment he first sees her, Finn knows she is his. He feels her heartbeat, knows her soul, and he will do anything, even suffer exile from the Edgelands to be with her.

But there is more to Lorelei than meets the eye. She is like Finn; there is U’lfer blood in her veins, a beast beneath her skin she never knew was there. The answers she seeks lie south, in the frozen tundra of Rimian, where a village of people just like her have been waiting for Lorelei to come and save them since before she was even born.

3.0 su 5 stelle A light fantasy weaved around a Celtic feel of three characters coming into their own. 27 maggio 2015
Di MelHay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Lorelie runs into the Edgelands, determined to have a say in how she will die. She'd rather be torn apart by the wolf U'lfer people than at the hand of her betrothed. To Lorelie's surprise she wakes alive, with the U'lfer.

Finn scented her on the wind. He knows she's different yet no one else seems to scent it. He feels a draw to her he's never felt before, and is willing to face exile to be with her.

There is an introduction (which the first sentence is from). I like this as it's a complete short story of an important event in Lorelei's past.

There is a Celtic feel to the U'lfer - descendants of The Wild Hunt and Fionn mac Cumhaill. They are were-wolves and people. By chapter 7 you will know and feel it too. I loved this creation and grow to express the feel to me.

We get to see the world through different eyes, Lorelie, Finn, and from time to time Finn's brother Viln. The characters spend a lot of time re-evaluating and evaluating through thought to themselves. I felt a very intimate feeling with the three characters. I felt the most for Finn though. However with these characters being in the same place, I felt there were sections that repeated things - how limited the U'lfer are in number, Finn's madness, Viln repeats many of these things and Finn. The actions tell a lot, so their thoughts aren't needed as much to reiterate what we know or have learned.

The focus is on Lorelie who's t save the half-breeds of U'lfer and who doesn't know much of the world as she was shielded from it by her father, and king. This gives a young adult feel to the story. She's young and finds her way along with a sweet romance highlight here.

The beginning had me with the strong feeling of The Wild Hunt and Finn influences. The ending...Oooo. Enjoyed the end and the take of the Serpent of Time here. The middle had it's slow moments and lots of reflection by the characters, but I'm curious more of Finn. And what is Lorelie to do in the journey to come. But Finn? He's where my thoughts are.

This book ends the first step in Lorelie's events and starts the next journey. Looking forward to reading that next adventure. I'm curious to see if what is 'seen' happens or if Lorelie finds a way... I have the second book and will be reading it.
3.0 su 5 stelle Good, but not something I could read for long periods 5 agosto 2015

I liked Edgelanders quite a bit, but it's one of those books that, for me, had a lot of little nagging problems that detracted from my enjoyment of it. Little things, like there being too many names of characters and places that were similar. Drekne, Deken, and Dunvarak; Rimian, Rivenn, Rognar, Ruwena, Rhiorna, and Roggi; Lorelei, Logren, and Leithe. In some ways, it just felt like Melzer got stuck on a few letters, and they all got used at the expense of other letters. It made keeping track of people and places a little difficult, but not much.

There was a lot of repetition of ideas. Almost any time we had Finn's point-of-view, he was always mooning and harping over how afraid he was that Lorelei would shun him or never accept him as a mate... only days after they met. I understand that it was a driving force for him, but I got a little sick of these sorts of things always popping up in his thoughts. I think if some of that repetition had been toned down across all the characters, it would have made the book flow faster (for me, at least) and smoothed things out, but that's a personal aesthetic.

Throughout much of the book, I felt like there was something lacking, and it was during the epilogue (which was, in my opinion, the most intriguing part of the book) that I realized what it was: there was no real clear personification of an antagonist. It wasn't until the epilogue that I saw Trystay again, and holy cow, did his presence make a huge difference in the urgency of the plot! Frankly, it brings up my hopes that book two of this series will be better, which isn't to say this book was bad. To me, it felt like a prologue... one really long prologue to the real story.

5.0 su 5 stelle Mad for Finn ;) 1 novembre 2014
Di Morgan Elektra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Fantasy isn't my usual cup of tea but, having read other work by this author, I was intrigued enough to pick up a copy of Edgelanders. And man, did it knock my socks off! Jennifer Melzer is almost Tolkien-esque in her ability to build a word completely different than our own, and yet still make it feel utterly real. I was with Lorelei and her companions for every step of their journey.

The very best part though, for me, was the great characters. I love that no one is simple. Each character is complex and nuanced, and I would often go from loving them to wanting to smack them and back. This made them real to me in a way not many writers manage. That said, I have a special fondness for Finn. Dear, dear Finn. He has such a brave, wonderful heart that I couldn't help but love him almost from the minute he loped onto the page.

Thank goodness the second book is out already, because patience is not one of my strong suits!

An excellent fantasy that will take you on a roller coaster ride!
I really did enjoy this book, the characters, the plot, and the world building. I feel like I'd like to go and explore the world Melzer has created in this book!
Yes, I will agree with some of the reviews that at times the characters are much too stuck in their heads. At times the ratio of exposition and action leans more to the side of rumination, and I sadly found myself skimming through those parts. Just a little less "getting stuck" in a characters thoughts and the story would flow that much better.
Can't wait to start the second book!
2.0 su 5 stelle Interesting ideas defeated by lack of a skilled editor 24 novembre 2016
Di Mark Scheid - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is in desperate need of an editor. 120 pages into the book we're still talking about the implications about the first dramatic scene. The impending doom is delayed by every pair of characters hashing out how they feel about the event. The world is interesting and there seems to be some good ideas here, but the author bogs us down with character details we don't have nearly enough investment to care about! I'm patient, and the narrator of the audio book wss good enough to make me even more so, but this has turned into a slog and I just can't continue.
