Sinossi

All his life, Moon roamed the Three Worlds, a solitary wanderer forced to hide his true nature — until he was reunited with his own kind, the Raksura, and found a new life as consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud court. But now a rival court has laid claim to him, and Jade may or may not be willing to fight for him. Beset by doubts, Moon must travel in the company of strangers to a distant realm where he will finally face the forgotten secrets of his past, even as an old enemy returns with a vengeance. The Fell, a vicious race of shape-shifting predators, menaces groundlings and Raksura alike. Determined to crossbreed with the Raksura for arcane purposes, they are driven by an ancient voice that cries out from . . . .The siren depths.

5.0 su 5 stelle Best of the series 5 dicembre 2012
Di Professor J - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In this episode of Days of Our Draconic Lives, Moon's more or less settled into life at Indigo Cloud, although he's anxious because he and Jade haven't managed to make a clutch yet despite lots of enthusiastic attempts. But before Stone can slap him in the head and tell him to chillax, gasp! Visitors arrive with stunning news! The mystery of Moon's birth-court has been solved! But, er, there's a problem (of course). They want him back. And by the vagaries of Raksuran custom, Moon has no choice but to leave Indigo Cloud and go meet the people who may well have deliberately abandoned him to die as a child.

This was probably the most emotional of the Books of the Raksura, which is probably why it's my favorite so far of the three. Moon -- not the most emotionally together guy at the best of times -- has to muddle his way through a morass of his feelings for Jade, his fears about the future, his anger about his past, other people's hatred of him, and more. As if that's not enough to deal with, the Fell are back with a vengeance... along with something worse. Along the way, though, Wells treats us to the same wonders and horrors that make us love and fear the Three Worlds: amazing ancient cities, magical airships, genteel monsters, breathtakingly badass women, obnoxiously badass grandpas, and truly heartrending moments of pain and beauty.

If you even slightly liked either of the two preceding books, make sure you read this one. Seriously.

The Three Worlds is an amazing piece of world building. Fascinating. Write more, faster.
As to writing. Martha Wells is an amazing writer. Her characters are real, in a way many writers don't achieve, being well-rounded with admirable traits and flaws. Yet no one is obviously the hero, born into obscurity... Her people ARE people.
Seriously folks, this is good stuff.

5.0 su 5 stelle brilliant. 27 novembre 2012
Di kat heatherington - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Martha Wells is amazing. The 3rd book in the Raksura series fully delivers on the promise of the first two. It's poignant enough to make you cry, thoughtful and thought-provoking, funny, fast-moving and action packed as always. and, central to all of Wells work is her brilliant character building. as another reviewer said, i re-read these books for the people. I took the opportunity to re-read the first two books of the Raksura when I received the Siren Depths, just for the pleasure of going back to that complex and detailed world and re-experiencing it through Moon's eyes. I am delighted by Moon's personal growth and the deepening of his relationship with his culture & society. And Jade! i also continue to absolutely adore the inverted gender dynamics of Raksuran society. i love it that Moon spends some time worrying if he's pretty enough, and things like that. some of it's bold and funny, and some of it's subtle, and all of it is a very nice mirror to the assumptions we live under.

As in the first two books, the lush descriptions of this highly original world are simply breathtaking. i want to go live in a mountain-tree now. and have wings. of course.

Highest reccomendation.

5.0 su 5 stelle Wildly Imaginative Storytelling 4 dicembre 2012
Di Skuldren - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Siren Depths is the third book in Martha Wells' Books of the Raksura series. The novel brings an interesting story and compelling characters together for a fitting end to the trilogy. But is it the end?

One thing I liked about the story was how it tells a tale on two fronts. One one hand there's the immediate story of what Moon is doing and where he's being forced to go. On the other hand, The Siren Depths ties in with the previous novels to finally reveal Moon's full backstory. Readers finally get to find out what happened to him as a kid, how he was separated from his court, the identity of his parents, and more. By the end, all of the loose ends are tied up which gives the book a feeling of completeness. However, the future is kept wide open and there are plenty of major stories that could be explored in future novels.

On its own, The Siren Depths is an enjoyable book. It's certainly not something you would want to dive into without reading the other two books first. A lot of world building and character building is accomplished before hand. While you probably could jump straight into this book and enjoy it, you would be missing out on a lot. Regardless, this book fits in perfectly with the series. As part of the greater whole, it continues the fun, but it also ties things together nicely, answers lingering questions, and pushes the characters in intriguing directions.

Like the previous stories, there is a good mix of various story elements. It explores new, strange places and creatures. There's a new villain who turns out to be the driving force behind the Fell and their desire to crossbreed with the Raksura. There's a new groundling city discovered on the side of a cliff, built into a gigantic statue. It has harbors for flying boats and its citizens are armed with projectile weaponry. There's also a mysterious underwater city full of secrets that's explored. There's a lot of court intrigue as Moon ventures to a new Raksuran court on the edge of the Reaches. Meanwhile the story of Moon and Jade's relationship continues into new territory. The only thing that's not really explored yet is the raising of the Sky Copper royal clutch.

If you're thinking about investing in the series, it's worthwhile. The second and third books are on par with the first. It's also a good way for Star Wars readers to see what Martha Wells' storytelling is like. She does a good job of balancing between characters and plot. The dialog and character development is excellent. She's very imaginative and comes up with some really strange races, creatures, and places. Action is spread throughout the novel with various trigger points and mission points, but it's never drawn out to the point of being tiresome. There also isn't any graphic sex, and while there is violence, she doesn't dwell on it. All in all, it's a great mix for good storytelling that makes for addictive reading.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fabulous wrap-up, and emotionally satisfying. 1 aprile 2013
Di H Waterhouse - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book wraps up Wells' extremely strong fantasy trilogy, and it upholds the standards of the previous books. I wasn't certain where the tension would come from, but at long last, the family Moon has always wished for shows up in his life again. But of course, nothing is ever that uncomplicated. He's a settled young adult now, and being sent back into the role of a young prince is not his idea of a good time.

I want to give Moon the BIGGEST hug. His scars from a lifetime of not-belonging and moving all the time are so obvious and relevant to the story.
"Moon wanted to believe that so much it made his whole body hurt. But everything in his life up to this point said that this was the end, that he would never see her or any of the others again. Trying to struggle out from under the weight of the past was like drowning. After a strangled moment, he managed to choke out, "I'll be waiting.""

Poor woogums! Of course he can't believe that anyone could persistently want him in their lives, no matter what he wants. I would really recommend this book to military brats, mish kids, and those of the rest of us who had a routine for how to walk into a new school and try not to make the same mistakes as last time.

So in addition to Moon's emotional drama, there's also a really ripping story that winds up explaining exactly what the Fell have been up to, and why Moon was lost, and all sorts of other things you've been wondering through the first two books of the series. This was one of those books that I kept sneaking peaks at during the workday.

Read if: You have enjoyed the previous two books. You like reading sympathetic portrayals of complicated emotions. You want to encourage new and interesting fantasy books being written.

Skip if: You are contents to keep reading sword and sorceror books until the end of time.
