J'ai commencé à lire cette série par hasard. J'ai été immédiatement séduite et les quelques problèmes de ponctuation (que l'auteur reconnait et qui s'améliorent grandement au fil des livres) n'ont en rien altéré ma perception positive. J'ai adoré la manière d'écrire de l'auteur et cette façon qu'il a de raconter l'histoire de Mordecai. Les personnages sont attachants, la magie est fascinante, les émotions sont superbement rendues (préparez un mouchoir. Il y a des moments poignants), les "vilains" sont très vilains (et très puissants)...bref, je l'ai dit, j'ai adoré.
Un point noir à noter tout de même : l'impossibilité (ou presque) de se détacher d'un livre une fois qu'on a commencé sa lecture. Prévoyez des litres de café si vous décidez de lire la nuit (j'ai encore des restes de cernes...mais quel voyage !!)
Voila une série que je recommande grandement (et qui ne troue pas le porte-monnaie)
Je pense ne pas être la seule à attendre avec impatience les prequelles que l'auteur a promis.
Merci Mr Manning pour cette belle aventure.

Reading this book was not as satisfying as I would like. The meat of the book was pretty good but there was a lot missing. Characters we had grown to accustomed to and liked had few if any pages dedicated to them. I understand you can only fit so much into a book but it was disappointing, we read about them in the first 4 books and then they just fade away. Some of the answers given to some of the questions brought up previously were also lacking depth. There are some things that are just revealed with no context or backstory which I felt undermined some of the people and things in previous books.
The ending is where I really just didn't like where the book went. I HATE when characters let themselves be stepped on. I wont say who but the way some things went was incredibly annoying. I will go so far as to say there are betrayals in some ways. There are also things that have yet to be resolved. Yes that's right people we don't get all of the threads cut. Will the author continue and wrap these up? No clue we know he is making some prequels but that's it so far.
I don't see how anything anyone writes will persuade anyone to either buy the book or not if you have gotten this far. Did I enjoy the book? Yes. Did I feel it adequately ended the story? In some ways. Will I reread it like the others? Doubtful but perhaps.
Upon finishing "Mageborn: The God-Stone War" I was devastated and immediately started searching for the continuation, unable to accept that it would end this way. Only to find out the book had not yet been published. Let me tell you it was worth the wait.
The story of Lothion continues in unexpected ways that will make you cry, make you angry, make you laugh and will have you unable to put the the book down.
I recommend that you read the whole series to understand the many nuances that are weaved through the story, you will not be disappointed.
While the author has grown as the series goes along this felt like a bit of a step back for me. Mordecai (or what is left of him) spends much of the book in an emotionless haze, which left me feeling detached as well. Readers like to form emotional connections with the characters and this was hard to do in the first half of this book. The scenes focused on the rest of the cast were generally very fast paced and left little time for interactions or development. Generally it left me feeling like zombie-Mordecai...a bit numb.
The sad thing is that this book has a theme I generally enjoy - the good guy at least appearing to be a bad guy, or taking on that mantle in order to get things done. There were some fun moments here and there where zombie-Mordecai took a bit of delight in being the bad guy. We could have used more of that.
The author has shown no fear of killing off characters in previous books and generally I admire this trait. Having said that, killing characters that the readers care about is risky because it breaks a link we have to the story. Given that we were already spending most of our time with a nearly-emotionless zombie the deaths of several other important characters made this a less-than-engaging read.
I also could not quite buy into Ariadne's sudden emergence as prominent leader. She is one of the least developed regular characters and suddenly she has this steely-eyed "follow me!" grit to her. It felt very much as though she became a leader because the story needed her to become a leader, not because it was a natural evolution for the character. It was also quite convenient that her brother had no interest in the throne. It all felt a bit forced and slightly off.
The final battle seemed odd to me as well. We are told throughout the book that Mordecai would stand no chance, no matter how many power units he gathered (and was I the only one expecting to see some kind of power meter showing his current "god-units"?). We are also told that the adversary conveniently is toying with Mordecai instead of simply killing him....because he enjoys it. That seems odd for an ancient, powerful being that should have a pretty sharp focus on his goals. Of course then you have a bit of cleverness and luck and Our Hero wins the day. It felt a little like a James Bond villain to me, where if the villain would simply do the practical thing and shoot 007 they would succeed in their nefarious schemes. Why is the old god messing around with Mordecai at all?
Finally I really disliked the whole "let's put the hero on trial" schtick. I don't see how it added anything to the series other than pages to the end of the book. The author usually does a good job avoiding cliche but here we have (and not for the first time in this series) the "hero saves the world but can't be recognized for it" cliche. Like the succession sub-plot it felt contrived. It's clear Mordecai was not responsible for what happened. Everyone knows that those possessed by the undead in this world have no control over themselves...and yet here we are putting the person who saved the world on trial.
Beyond that I don't understand why Mordecai would be determined to not get off on a technicality, yet sulk at his estate following his punishment. Once he chose the noble path of accepting punishment to help the new Queen, even eschewing magical means of reducing his suffering so that onlookers will be suitably impressed, he has no right to act as though it is her fault somehow. If he could not see that then Penny or Rose needed to 'splain it to him.
Others have talked about the child-with-the-gem dangling thread. I can only assume it will be picked up later. You can add my voice to those who were very disappointed with that part of the story. See above about breaking connections with readers.
I had high hopes for this book. Hopefully the prequels will be better.
