Larke did not lax in any bit of the book and the plot flowed beautifully, engaging till the end. Good stories poorly written seem to be a bit of a theme as of late. Despite my complaints, I still loved most the book and flew through it. If a reader wants risign avoid rape in their fantasy, stop at book one.
Stormlord Rising (Watergivers, book 2) by Glenda Larke
I expected more character and world development, which I got, but I also got to witness a brutal war. Remaining a slave in an enemy camp because they can’t bear the thought of leaving their husbands behind so they won’t escape without them, is one example.
While I found it realistic and handled appropriately i. Families are divided, heroes are made, and the fate of the world is decided in the exciting conclusion to Australian conservationist Larke’s Watergiver trilogy after ‘s Stormlord Rising. We were led to believe in the first book that this particular woman was intelligent, strong, pragmatic and yet she seems to forget all that as soon as her man is in trouble.
Little, Brown Book Group4 November That may seem harsh, but there is a reason for it but like I said, I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Same world, same characters and same magical system as before but it is what Glenda Larke does with these things that counts.
It’s true that he is limited by his inability to separate water vapor from the ocean, but he finds such creative uses of his abilities, ones outside the tradition of previous stormlords and rainlords, that has me shaking my head in appreciation.
It felt to me that there was a little bit too much going on, Very scattered and I honestly didn’t care for most of the characters, they just blurred into a complicated mess for me and I kept putting dow this book to read other things.
Having grumbled in my review of book 1 that so many major characters died, my complaint this time is over the number who miraculously survived, despite being believed dead.
Larke is still incredibly easy to read, I often lost track of time and read longer than I intended.
Jan 12, Ithlilian rated it really liked rusing Shelves: A great to sequel to an a really good book. I can see him becoming a wise and capable Cloudmaster in the last book.
A lot of conversations that seemed to happen more than once. It’s just so relentlessly vexing when female characters go against their personalities, doing stupid things for the sake of their men folk. Ironically the character that annoyed me m Stormlord Rising continues the story of Terelle, Shale, Ryka and the other survivers after the Reduner attack on Breccia. She thinks he needs her, that he is in fact, stoormlord trouble.
I get that having a weak sight could happen, and that that isn’t something we see a lot in fantasy books, and therefore is a novelty. For this second book, I liked all the time spent in the stormlkrd desert” after certain characters escaped the holocaust of the first book — it was a unique environment. Ratings and reviews No one’s rated or reviewed this product yet. The series already has a worship of the Stormlord, adding another savior for the Reduners didn’t add much.
Dec 30, Dianna rated it really liked it. Another great thread came from what I though was going to be a trite long lost identity plot line. In the desert-dry Quartern nation, only a cloudmaster can keep people alive by calling the rains.
Stormlord Rising | Glenda Larke
The book ends, inevitably, with a huge battle or perhaps a series of battles would be more accurate. Since when did this character become such a fucking doormat. There is also a religious overtone to the story where the divergent cultures are completely different in their beliefs. The last Stormlord is dead. Taquar attempts to manipulate and control him, but like a riising testing the boundaries, Jasper refuses to be controlled.
