Présentation de l'éditeur

Mordecai has made the ultimate sacrifice to keep his family safe, and now struggles to understand what he has become. Rejected by all, he must learn to master the darkness within if he is to stop Mal’goroth from destroying humanity. Alone, he battles to control the malevolent magic that has consumed him as he searches for some way to turn his destructive new powers against the Dark Gods themselves. To win, he must somehow transform his own damnation into mankind’s salvation.

Mon commentaire traite de la série en général (5 livres : The Blacksmith Son, The Line of Illeniel, The Archmage Unbound, The God-Stone War et The Final Redemption).

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.

HASH(0x9820aa98) étoiles sur 5 Excellent conclusion to the series....... 25 janvier 2014
Par BobbiK - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I began devouring this book as soon as it was delivered to my Kindle. I know I'm reading a great book when I feel like I'm returning to old friends, and I definitely felt that as I began. I quickly became engrossed in the story, including all the twists and turns that Manning writes so well. I was heartbroken in sections, joyful in others, but truly love the writing style that draws me in and allows me to feel the emotion of the characters. I couldn't wait to read the book, but found myself setting it aside at times as I simply didn't want it to end. Even during those times, I picked it up within a couple minutes, drawn back into the story. When it ended, I was sad, yet hopeful that there will be more. Through all of the twists and turns, Manning stays true to the characters, and they are rich and well rounded characters. For a fantasy story it is believable. His world is real and I already miss it. Definitely a must read for those who enjoy being drawn into an amazing story.

HASH(0x9820ace4) étoiles sur 5 Worthy conclusion to an awesome series 26 janvier 2014
Par Brandon - Publié sur Amazon.com

Finally! a worthy conclusion to an awesome series. I liked the blacksmith's son enough to want to continue the series and loved the follow ups with Line of Illenial, Archmage unbound, and the god stone war. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, God stone war was probably my favorite. I was upset to see a beloved character of mine die (permanently, was still holding out hope they'd find away to bring the character back by the end) and the book didn't go in any direction I expected, in fact the direction it went was completely opposite to what I was hoping for. While somethings I was disappointed with, overall this was still an awesome book, a page turner, and it was hard to put down. I finished it in a day and a half, which for me is crazy. I recommend this series to all those I know looking for a new series to read.

HASH(0x9820aca8) étoiles sur 5 The End... for now? 23 janvier 2014
Par Bryce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Making a review for the final book in a series is kind of more difficult than other books. I say this because it is more final and the persons view on the book is affected more by what they wanted compared to what they got.

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.

HASH(0x9820af9c) étoiles sur 5 Long anticipated conclusion to the Mageborn series 24 janvier 2014
Par Sandra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Michael G Manning's skill as an author and epic story teller really come through in this, the final book in the Mageborn series. I personally am appreciative of his wit and comedic timing to lighten up an otherwise dark situation. Michael's maturation as an author is evident in this book.

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.

HASH(0x9661b018) étoiles sur 5 OK But Not Great 18 février 2014
Par CPT Doug Waterfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've enjoyed this series from the beginning, in part because we have seen the author developing and improving his skills. I want to say that up front because reading the rest of this review you may get the feeling that I did not enjoy the series. I also think that if you have been reading the series so far you should read this last volume because many (certainly not all) questions are answered.

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.

(mild spoilers)
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.
