Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 7 mars 2011
Format: Poche
"The Bridge of Arnath" est une série de quatre tomes écrite par Carole Berg et chaudement recommandée par Larouette. Larouette avait bien raison d'insister, ces quatre tomes font ressortir de très nombreuses émotions en plus d'être très divertissants et impeccablement écrits.

C'est de la fantasy féminine c'est certain (on pense à Jennifer Fallon, à Melanie Rawl, à Jacqueline Carey), mais messieurs ne vous inquiètez pas, vous aurez aussi des mondes à sauver, vous assisterez à des scènes de torture particulièrement raffinées (organes broyés, brûlés, coupés...), vous croiserez des sorciers à quasiment tous les coins de pages et vous serez par moments dans la tête d'un héros commandant une armée terrifiante.

Mais c'est d'abord une série pour les amoureux des personnages, pour ceux qui aiment les psychologies complexes et les personnages à double visage.

Petite parenthèse: Chapeau bas à l'auteur de nous offrir un héros et une héroïne de 40-50 ans plutôt que des demoiseaux de 20 ans qui n'ont rien vécu ou des sorciers qui ont vécu des millénaires. Cela sonne juste et c'est rafraîchissant.

1- "Son of Avonar" 4 étoiles
J'ai eu un peu de mal à rentrer dans l'univers proposé par l'écrivain. Les scènes étaient prometteuses mais entrelacées de flashbacks certes élégants et habiles, mais coupant le souffle de l'intrigue.

On découvre Séri, une femme revêche de 35 ans environ, vivant dans une petite maison en pleine campagne.

I'm a big fan of fantasy, particularly epic fantasy. I've read Brent Weeks, Terry Brooks, Anne McCaffrey, R.A. Salvatore, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, and tons of others. I've read a lot of Berg's other books, too: the Lighthouse Duet, the Rai-Kirah series, and the Collegia Magica series. I was a bit hesitant to pick up this series after hearing that one of Berg's most recent books was disappointing, but I'm glad I decided to give it a try.

This book was about the same length as most of her other books. The style is Berg's typical style. It has the same type of characters I've come to love: the unique group of outcasts that don't seem to fit together. This crew consists of a sheriff with an unpleasant history, a middle-aged woman who was cast out from the court life, a warrior with amnesia, a homeless boy with a limp, a sorcerer who can't cast spells, an old fisherman, an apathetic king, and the king's bitter champion. Berg also presents the world and the plot very well. One of the underlying themes is rebirth. It is very easy to write such a theme to be trite and cheesy, but Berg did a masterful job of using this overdone theme in a way that is new and refreshing.

Son of Avonar is not a book that will read quickly for everyone or that will entice everyone. It does fall victim a bit to the stereotypical fantasy genre voice, so if you don't care much for that kind of writing, it may not be for you.

I found this book on a list of recommended women's fantasy but found it something of a disappointment. The setting was uniformly gloomy, which I can deal with, but the tyranny of the Bad Rulers seemed inconsistent, and the unremitting glumness, gloom, darkness and other gritty appurtenances eventually got on my nerves. The basic proposition was intriguing, but the plot twist was one I've seen before and in this case, the consequent ramifications left me uneasy and reluctant to condone the "body-swap" outcome. The underlying structure of the good/evil plotline I also found confusing or else thin. There was a bridge which had to be fixed or held, but why, and to whose benefit? Overall, it didn't encourage me to read any further in the series.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A well-written, serious tale of sword and sorcery 6 août 2012

The first volume in a series of four, SON OF AVONAR has a solid ending that does not require further reading. Secondary elements of plot suggest that the story could continue, but the prominent elements are brought to conclusion. If, however, you read the second volume before the first one, the first one will be severely spoiled. (I cannot speak for the third or fourth volumes, which I have not read.)

Synopsis: Lady Seriana is no longer a lady. She is now a commoner, just Seri, surviving with a garden and the herbs she collects to sell in a nearby village. Then one day high adventure invades her pastoral life when she collides with a naked, wounded fugitive. Less wary of him than of his pursuers, with whom she is familiar, she takes him to her cottage. As she restores the health of this mentally unstable mute, she becomes assured of his virtue and decides to accompany him to a safer location. Through deft insertions of flashbacks, we become immersed in Seri's world, where all magic is dark sorcery and a capital crime. We share her past experiences of a corrupt brother, a tyrannical king, and tragedy. In the present, chased by danger, entangled in intrigue, she becomes aware that the evils of the King are mild compared to more insidious ones that threaten the world.

Critique: Admittedly the story's beginning was discouraging. The encounter with a sexy hunk of naked masculinity seemed unrealistic, and though the gimmick of the maid rescuing the beau is contrary to classical tradition, it is not new. But SON OF AVONAR got many good reviews, so I decided to delve into the story more deeply. The more I did, the more absorbing it became. A comment on the back cover says, "Carol Berg hooks the reader with vividly drawn characters...." Well, maybe, though I think "vivid" may be exaggerative. Her characters are definitely good, fitting into the story without phony showiness. But her characters are only a subordinate part of her high quality storytelling. For example, it is critical for a storyteller to maintain a serious attitude--plausible dialog, realistic action sequences, no gratuitous insertions of comedy--and Berg does that well. Additionally, her elements of plot come together with credibility and with some surprises. And with only a moderate use of background detail, she establishes a fantasy environment without bloating her prose with sophisticated-but-incomprehensible words.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rarity in fantasy 8 juin 2013

In the Four Realms magic is forbidden and those who practice it are hunted down and meet the most horrible death imaginable. Seri, a noblewoman in exile, comes upon a fugitive with unusual abilities and provides aid. It seems like a straightforward story, but this isn't your typical fantasy, for its built on an intricate plot and rich characters. No simpleton story line here and certainly no cardboard characters. Even the those with the smallest parts to play in Seri's world come to life, for there are small parts, but no minor characters. This story made my heart pound, not because it possessed unending action (there is action), but because the story grabs hold and doesn't let go. I'm just trying to figure out how it is I didn't discover Carol Berg's writing sooner.

I mostly read scifi. Carol Berg is the reason i also now read some fantasy. It's been a while since i have read a page turner such as this! Anxious to vet started on 2-4. In a perfect world carol would also write hard sci-fi! Can't say enough.
