Sinossi

Ile-Rien is in peril. A mysterious army known only as the Gardier has surrounded the country, attacking in ominous black airships. Hope is not lost though, for a magical sphere created by Ile-Rien's greatest sorcerer may hold the key to defeating the faceless enemy. But the sphere is unpredictable and has already claimed several lives. When a magical spell goes disastrously awry, young Tremaine Valiarde and a brave band are transported to another world. A world of rough magics, evil mages, honorable warriors -- and a secret Gardier base.

The Wizard Hunters takes place in the same setting as some of Martha Wells’s previous novels, most notably Death of the Necromancer, but is the start to a new trilogy. I didn’t find it to be among Martha Wells’s best outings, but it was still an enjoyable fantasy novel.

If Death of the Necromancer has parallels to the Victorian era, The Wizard Hunters has clear parallels to World War II. Basically, it’s taking Ile-Rien, a setting I’ve grown to love through Wells’s previous books, and literally blowing it up. For Ile-Rien is under attack from a mysterious and unknown enemy, the Gardier, who’s black airships seem to appear out of nowhere and who display no mercy.

I think The Wizard Hunters would have had a lot less of an impact on me if I hadn’t read Death of the Necromancer. The most emotional part of the book for me was seeing the destruction wrecked on a setting I’d loved and the dire fates of the previous book’s cast.

But The Wizard Hunters itself wasn’t that great. I wouldn’t call it bad, but it falls more in the category of mediocre. What draws me again and again to Martha Wells’s work is the imagination she displays in crafting her worlds, but both worlds of The Wizard Hunters (there’s two) felt like places I’d seen before. I really love the overall idea – mysterious invaders from another world appearing out of no where. It was sort of a fantasy take on alien invasion. However, there wasn’t much I found thrilling about the book. I was mostly tepid on how the plot played out and the new character cast, and I did have trouble remembering who some of the minor characters were.

All that said, I may give the second book in the trilogy a shot at some point, it just won’t be high up on my to read list. So far I haven’t read a novel by Martha Wells that I’ve outright disliked or even not enjoyed enough to finish. And I do have enough lingering interest in the invasion plotline to want to see how everything plays out.

5.0 su 5 stelle more complex than it seems on the surface 20 ottobre 2012

I am an enormous fan of Martha Wells' entire ouvre, I'll lead off with that so you know where I'm coming from. I read Element of Fire first, when she posted it serially on her Livejournal, and then bought all three books of this trilogy when the last one was released. They arrived on the morning of a horrific snowstorm that shut my city down for three days, and so I curled up in the bay window with a tealight candle and read them all start-to-finish while everyone else sat around complaining about the cold and dark. Ha! I didn't even know where I was.
These books are, on the surface, perfect comfort reading. Lots of swash and buckle, brave characters fighting evil, etc., etc., and there's never a dull moment.
But that's not why I was so enthralled-- plenty of swashbuckling adventures don't manage to bring me along for the ride, and i put the book down and never come back to them.

Wells has characters, phenomenal characters. Nobody is really a stereotype. All of her books and even her short stories share this; everyone is three-dimensional, even if drawn in only a few strokes. They all have shadows, they all have their own motivations; nobody's a prop. Even her disposable henchmen are human.

This trilogy has a protagonist, a young woman named Tremaine Valiarde, plus an ensemble cast; POV is primarily Tremaine's, but for other scenes dips into a number of different characters; it is, after all, somewhat epic, and lots of things happen, and Tremaine does not personally witness them all.
I especially enjoyed Tremaine because she is so human. Now, having read the Death of the Necromancer, which deals with the adventures of her father, Nicholas Valiarde, and her mother, Madeleine Denare, it is fascinating to see how skillfully Tremaine is drawn as a descendant of these two, and yet is very much her own person. Wells is an excellent characterizer.

And so, in the years since I first bought this book, I have come back to it again, and again, and again. It's not a comfort reread, it is a visit with some old friends.

5.0 su 5 stelle Love these worlds, stories and style! 20 febbraio 2015

I love this series, this is my favorite author. I discovered the Cloud Roads (Books of the Raksura) Series and after finishing that I have been going through all her other works, and I love it alllllll. This series is my second favorite next to Cloud Roads. It is an epic and enticing adventure between three worlds, with many cultures, magics, spirits and flying ships. If you have not read this and you love Scifi, then it is a must!!

I recommend that you read Martha Well's book "Wheel of the infinite" before reading this trilogy.
This book is the first of an excellent trilogy--I just finished rereading and enjoyed it even more the first time. BUT the first book is somewhat dark--worth working through, but I almost stopped reading because of it. I am so glad that I continued--this is sf, action/adventure, romance, fantasy, many genres in one. There is a single book that is related, "Death of the Necromancer." but I think it is better to read later. It is about the main character's father--and is not necessary to understand the trilogy.
Martha Wells is a great author--I am already pre-ordering her next work.

5.0 su 5 stelle Finding the funny in the scary 19 marzo 2005

Martha Wells has made a career by working at the boundary between magic and science, and in "The Wizard Hunters," she returns her readers to Ile-Rien, a place she's brought us to twice before.

The setting in this volume seems to approximate the Europe of the 1920s. There's electricity, telephones, and automobiles, as well as wizards, wards, and spells. And the land is faced with an alien invasion in the form of "the Gardier," conquerers from elsewhere who arrive in spellbusting dirigibles that can wreck things made of metal. Like guns and electronic equipment.

But where is elsewhere? The author's heroine, Tremaine Valiarde (daughter of Nicholas Valiarde from "Death of the Necromancer"), is enlisted--well she enlists herself really in order to avoid her suicidal impulses. As Florian the young witch tells her: "It's like you're two people. One of them is a flighty artist, and I like her. The other one is bloody-minded and ruthless and finds scary things funny and I'm not sure I like her very much."

Whatever she is, she, along with her magical sphere that seems to have a mind of its own and can provide a counter-attack against the Gardier, turns into one of the most fascinatingly capable (if neurotic) protagonists you're likely to meet on the pages of any book. And in addition you'll meet not only her and the young witch, but also a host of people, from several societies on two different worlds. And there are plenty of scaring things to be encountered also.

The author's burnished prose moves along in a stately fashion, overcoming along the way a few apparent deficiencies in the plot. Ms. Wells occasionally manages to write herself into a corner, forcing her to create side quests to resolve plot issues that she needn't have created in the first place. On the whole, though, the author delivers on her promises.

Notes and asides: "The Wizard Hunters" is, yes, the first of three; but it concludes satisfactorily. It's BOOK 1 of the Fall of Ile-Rein alright; not a thinly disguised PART 1 that will leave you dangling. So fear not; read it now. No reason why you need to wait for the conclusion.
