HASH(0x9da07330) out of 5 stars Another terrific installment..... March 1 2012
By Andrew Shippy - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
....Please say this isn't the last we'll here about this amazing cast of characters. The book is the conclusion to the Fallen Kings Cycle. It's also the sixth book following the adventures and challenges of Tris Drayke, Kiara Sharsequin, Jonmarc and Carina Vahanian, and the rest of the amazing cast characters; but I'm still wanting more. Ms. Martin has created a fantastic world in the Winter Kingdoms. I like the pacing - not bogged down with too many details (enough to keep me wanting more) and not just a series of action-movie scenes. I liked this installment a lot, but was completely absorbed by the Jonmarc Vahanian and the vampires (vayash moru) subplots. I thought Tris had it too easy with all the amazing powers, while Jonmarc relied on skill and brains. Just my $0.02... Anyway, I would highly recommend this engaging, quick reads to anyone who loves fantasy/adventure series!

HASH(0x9da07384) out of 5 stars Good writing. Calms me down. Feb. 20 2012

I love this kind of stuff. If you enjoy nicely written fantasy with enjoyable characters, easily followed plot, gosh! What's not to love.

Only 4 stars because you should not confuse this with great writing or wonder if this is a new classic novel that will be studied for the ages.

But----if you love this kind of easy reading, pleasant writing, good story, empathetic characters, ... All that I, frankly, need then buy this short little series. I love this writer. When she publishes again, I shall buy it.

The writing is good. I recommend this writer and her stories without reservation. You will relax and enjoy.

Gail Martin has always been a favorite author of mine. Her medieval tinged stories of war, love and wizardry are easy to read, packed with action and suspense and "The Dread" is no different. Along with it's sister book "The Sworn", Martin paints a masterpiece rife with heroes, vampires, werewolves, sorcerers fighting unconscious evil counterparts in a "war of unmaking" woven into a tapestry of rapt imagination. An excellent read for all!

HASH(0x9da07558) out of 5 stars A great end to an amazing series! March 10 2012
By Penelope - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this series and the relationships between the characters. The novels were written very well and I loved how different characters narrated for each chapter. I find it neat to be able to see what is going on in so many different characters' heads. This book was a great conclusion to the Fallen Kings Cycle and if you have not make sure to read Chronicles of the Necromancer which invloves many of the same characters and really should be read first!!! I hope that Gail Z. Martin continues to write about the Winter Kingdoms.
HASH(0x9da07744) out of 5 stars Painstakingly slow Aug. 11 2014

This book was okay. Not nearly as good as the rest of the series. It drug really bad in the middle. Took me a long time to get into it. There was a lot of lead up and not a lot of action until the very end. It did more or less finish out the storylines of the characters but left a lot of questions unanswered. I still like the series as a whole, but this is probably my least favorite book.
