The Will of the Empress

Review Ï The Will of the Empress 102 S They're her old friends from Winding Circle Daja Tris and Briar Sandry hardly knows them now They've grown up and grown apart Sandry isn't sure they'll ever find their old connection again or if she even wants them to When they arrive at the pa. This book is 500 pages of hurtling towards a stunningly abrupt end The book is a slow build there isn t a terrible lot happening and you find yourself switching between POVs too much to really engage with any one character There are no heavily plotted moments to provide momentum and development to the story Daja s storyline is especially static she s essentially written out of the book towards the end because her ueer romance wasn t good enough for any real screentime Which I suppose could ve been a publisher mandate but it did serve only to emphasize my feelings the Daja is easily the most underserved the marginalized one of the four The Will of the Empress had a lot of problems There s some awesome victim blaming on Sandry s part wherein she only rescinds her gross ass statement that a woman who lets her husband beat her because she had no pride when she finds out this woman was forced to marry against her will This kind of thinking implies that women who are anything less than physically forced into an abusive relationships are somehow culpable for the behaviors of their shitty partners and that is an awful damaging viewpoint that people hold in real life I get that Sandry s viewpoint isn t necessarily the the author s but I feel like this perspective was presented without much discussionAll that aside the motivations of the characters were just rather baffling Sandry in particular was off kilter I get that Pierce was trying to show her growing out of the remainder of her childish petulance but the problem was that while Sandry has always been eminently capable of acting like a child she has never seem particularly attached to any of the trappings of nobility The fact that she had such mulish awful stubbornness towards retaining her Namornese properties felt rather out of character Similarly much of the tension between the four seemed manufactured on the author s part to draw out the conflict in the story Also as I mentioned above the actual resolution came so uickly it was unsatisfying Suddenly the characters gave a summary of their respective Circle Opens books except Briar and all is wellAlso it almost felt like Briar received preferential treatment He was the only character who actually had something happen to him in the four years between the end of his book and the start of this one It was jarring to have Briar make references to stuff that had never happened on screen when everyone else only regurgitated information that we had already received The Will of the Empress is an unwieldy mess of a book with uneven inconsistent characterization and sloppy emotional resolutions I think I need to give these characters a break after a disappointment like this I ll be holding off on Melting Stones and Battle Magic Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers ever find their old connection again or if she Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper even wants them to When they arrive at the pa.

Characters The Will of the Empress

Review Ï The Will of the Empress 102 Isit her vast lands within the Empire's borders Sandry has avoided the invitation for as long as it was possible Now Sandry has agreed to pay that overdue visit Sandry's uncle promises guards to accompany her But they're hardly a group of warrior. I had to really think about what rating to give this On one hand the book is very flawed but on the other I didn t want to put it downJust as a bit of a disclaimer I do know that this particular series by Tamora Pierce is not geared towards my age group and that s likely part of the problem But as with her continuing Lioness series this latter book is much readable to the older audienceSo the adventures of Sandry Tris Daja and Briar continue as the latter three return from their travels to discover that once reunited they ve grown apart It s a bit of a shock to them but not to any of the readers who are over 18 the age of our protagonists or have spent any significant time away from close friends As people grow age and experience life they change and it s hard to reconnect with people who haven t had those same experiences especially if they were traumatic And all of them Sandry included have experienced their share of traumaTheir ways of dealing with it set them even apart Sandry retreats into her titled noble facade Tris has her own cold and remote mask to hide behind Briar goes through woman after woman with no attachment to any of them just so he doesn t have to be alone at night Daja is the best adjusted of the group but she s feeling out of place as well No longer allowed to stay at Winding Circle for free due to their age she s forced to buy a house of her own that she really didn t want Nothing s at all the same for the four friends and none of them know how to deal with itBut of course a solution arrives in the form of accompanying Sandry to Namorn for a visit that her cousin Empress Berenene has practically ordered financial blackmail The reader already knows that it s not likely to be a trouble free visit and what they go through up in Namorn will forge them together as friends again but even already knowing all of that the story is entertaining enough to make you want to stay with itWhat follows is no surprise at all A glittery shiny court and a seemingly friendly empress cousin which is of course little than a shiny facade covering up all the conniving scheming and backstabbing you d expect in a setting like that It s something that takes the four friends a bit too long to grasp to my way of thinking given how worldly some of them are Oh Briar thinks he knows but he still allows himself to be snowed over by the extensive gardens and greenhousesAnyone who reads the inside flap of the book knows that the empress wants to marry Sandry off and thus keep her lands and money for Namorn herself really so when Sandry finally realizes that it s again no surprise to the reader Still Sandry does try to make the best of it as do her friends even while they re still in fightingOne pleasant development in the book is Daja s romance It was something that had been hinted around but seeing it actually happen definitely put a smile on my faceOf course it all comes together when Sandry is put in danger and needs her friends to rescue her Then all arguments are thrown aside and they band together to get her out of there and themselves out of Namorn Not that the road out is smooth big surprise but it s nothing four genius mages can t handle and once again nothing the reader didn t expectOne of the major flaws in the book the biggest I d say is that every single piece of the plot is spoon fed to the reader Every major and minor character s view point is shown at some time in the narration so there s never any surprise when something happens you always know it s coming Absolutely nothing is left to the imagination and there s no build up of mystery or suspense you always know what will happen and given who these four are you always know they ll find a way out It s a major weak point and if Ms Pierce had stayed with only the viewpoints of the four mages she might have had a much much stronger bookThat said it s still an entertaining story even knowing everything that will happen It doesn t get boring and although you already know that the four mages will find a way out of whatever predicament they re currently in you still want to stick around and see how they do it L'Image de la cité experience life they change and it s hard to reconnect with people who haven t had those same Dragon Soul: Cobalt Dragons Book 3 (English Edition) experiences The God Code:The Secret of our Past, the Promise of our Future
