Each fallob a unique style, and all are worthy of recognition as fine writers by anyone’s reckoning This review first appeared in The Specusphere in May Jennifer Fallon is one of the brightest stars in the constellation of Australasian fantasy writers. Well, I really enjoyed it. Elezaar the Dwarf is a small man with big secrets — jenniffr that doesn’t matter to Marla Wolfblade.
I am an abuse survivor and I just really prefer fantasy novels without any sexual violence. I loved the way the story follows Marla and shows her maturing with each event in her life, in a realistic way.

Hythrun Chronicles: Wolfblade Series by Jennifer Fallon
And Eleazer is awesome. I didn’t even want to cook because that just wasted falkon reading time. Fallon’s trilogy launch opens 10 years after the events previously recounted in the Hythrun Chronicles, in a land where dangerous intrigues are always stirring and a royal case of switched identities heralds the renewal of old enmities. Who knows, I might just be a cynical person who thinks too much.
Aija is a delicious villain, I really enjoyed the chapters in her perspective. It is nice to see Marla’s growing and learning process. I never once felt that this is just the same character as the last one. That Fallon is able to surprise loyal readers is impressive. Good ideas but bad execution. It allows Damin to become the man he does, and allows a whole host of characters to come on stage later on in the series.
The characters are extremely well-drawn the beginning is important to what comes, even though it is slowthe situations interesting, and Fallon makes us care about this succession. And the other middle classes have two names – “Ronan Dell”, “Wrayan Lightfinger”, etc.
The pacing is a little slow and it seems like all the action takes place “off-camera”, and the narrative voice switches so frequently, it is hard to develop an emotional attachment to any of the characters. Her brother is the High Prince of Hythria, and, in this fiercely patriarchal society, her fate will be decided on his whim.
I love being proved wrong about a book. It gets much better. Jemnifer only jennkfer were allowed give half-stars! Yeah, she is about at ambitious and morally bankrupt as they come, but there is a deep love of country behind what she does.
Books of the Week. You could remove his plot and not miss any part of the story. Some may find the story slow in spots because there is a lot of explaining to due with politics and customs but I liked it all the same. But truthfully speaking, the god of lies should probably be much stronger in general than the god of war, right? This is one of those fantasy books that is like jrnnifer food.
Fallon is a master of pacing. While the end result of the book is tied up fairly neatly, it leaves a lot of room for the next book to carry the story forward. As much as I love to read fantasy, it’s hard to summarize, or even articulate what worked or didn’t work for me as a reader. Also by Jennifer Fallon: So overall, I really enjoyed the series. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. I don’t see enough suffering and a lot of winning. My few criticisms include the nonchalance of slavery to a fault, and that I’m not sure who I’m supposed to route for.
Jan 03, Sabrina rated it it was amazing. This second trilogy is a prequel about Marla and her son Damin Wolfblade, comrade of The Demon Child in the jennifer 3 books.
We see Marla forcibly married to a man not of her choosing, and over the course of the book we watch her grow from a silly teenager who can hardly open her mouth without putting her foot in wwolfblade into a crafty stateswoman determined to become the real power behind the throne of Hythria. Especially of the places what in the name of all is Fardohnya?
Hythrun Chronicles: Wolfblade Series
One of the problems with Wolfblade is the very similar set of character names, even more confusing because of their relationship to Marla. There is plenty of uniqueness. It’s a very strange trope to use so deliberately.
