#DOWNLOAD KINDLE é The Immortal Throne (The City, #2) ⚦ eBook or E-pub free

A book which I have variable opinions of there s bits that are fantastic, such as the abilities of the lords and the intricate and endless conflicts between them Then there s bits which aren t, for example the lack of any clear timeframe on ages, years, what is happening when especially at the start of the book.There s also a massive cop out in terms of the world buildings, which is explained at the end view spoiler So, Earth is dying, there s no life anywhere else, Earth sends out a series of ships full of evolved superhumans to rule the life on other worlds Hang on, there is none, you just said there was none elsewhere What hide spoiler Spannend, goed geschreven en een waardig vervolg op De stad Een 9 maar hier een 8. #DOWNLOAD KINDLE Æ The Immortal Throne (The City, #2) ⚞ No One Is Safe, And No One Is To Be Trusted As The Bloody War That Began In Stella Gemmell S The City ContinuesThe Dreaded Emperor Is Dead The Successor To The Throne Is His Nemesis, Archange Many Hope Her Reign Will Usher In A New Era Of Freedom And Stability Soon However, Word Arises Of A Massive Army Gathering In The Shadows Of The North They Are Eager To Lay Waste To The City And Annihilate Anyone Man, Woman, Or Child Within It Yet Just As The Swords Clang In Fields Wet With The Blood Of Warriors, Family Feuds, Ancient Rivalries, And Political Battles Rage On Within The Cold Stone Walls Of The City A Hero Must Rise Up And Restore The Peace Before Anything Left To Fight For Is Consumed By The Madness c2016 FWFB Damn, I lost the review that i was writing and can t be asked to do it again Short but sweet I enjoyed the book, would have preferred a better recap and hopefully there is another book or two to goDon t think about the past The past is gone and there is nothing you can do about it Don t worry about the future, for you can t know what it will bring Just stay strong and keep your sword sharp And always be ready Uhwhat The continuation of the story of The City But confusing, odd, not sure it quite worked.Lots of people die Often for no apparent reason Lots of people kill lots of other people Also for no apparent reason Well, okay, there are reasons Just some of them seem a bit unnecessary.Oh, and everyone seems to change the side they are on every few chapters Again, don t really understand what motivates some of these.Also, the weird time travel subplot that wasn t really explored all seemed a bit needless.Like it, but feels a bit forced some of the decisions and things that are happening and at the end you re still baffled about the baby and what it is going to be, where Rubin s father disappeared to, what was is going on with Selene and her Vorago, where all of these people have come from to fight in all the battles given how many people seem to be dying all the timeglad I read it, but probably wouldn t pick it up for a second reading. Extremely well done Definitely want to read from Mrs Gemmell I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review The emperor is dead long live the emperor The fervent hope of the victorious rebels and the survivors of the uprising that liberated the City from tyranny is that the accession of Archange to the imperial throne will usher in a new era of freedom, peace and stability If only that were so As the City struggles to return to something resembling normal life after the devastation brought on by the rebellion, word arises of a massive army gathering to the north No one knows where it has come from or who leads it, but it soon becomes apparent that its sole purpose is to destroy the City and annihilate all man, woman and child who live within its battered walls And while warriors go forth to fight and die on the battlefield in defence of their homeland and all that they believe in, bitter family feuds and ancient rivalries, political and personal betrayals, and mindless murder surface within the palaces and corridors of power it seems the City is under siege from both without and within 3.5 stars It has been a while since I read the first book in this series, The City And, as it turns out, that was a bit of a problem for me.But let s look at what was good about this book This is probably a better book than the first the magic, the battles, the dialogue all far superior than the first book But what I really did love about both books was the prose itself Like honey on the tip of your tongue, it is sweet and slides down your throat easily and is extremely tasty Stella Gemmell is an absolute wordsmith On the downside, this book was written like the reader had just finished book 1 and knew exactly who everyone was, where everything is etc And I didn t Some kind of refresher for a few pages would have been useful not too much to ask for in a near 600 page bookAlso, the timelines were weird Some parts of this book took place BEFORE or at the same time as the previous book And that was seriously hard work That really took away any sense of continuity, breaking any suspense that had been built.I do, however, recommend this series, if for nothing than Gemmell s beautiful prose That alone is worth the price of admission.PaulARH This is the second book about the city The story here hinges greatly on characters and events of the first book Some seemingly small details of the first book became very important here I liked this book, the writing, the characters and the story But there were 2 things that bothered me a bit.1 there is a whole section in the book that is happening at the same time or even before the events of the first book I found some of these parts a bit boring I felt that there was not enough tension in those parts this feeling was also caused a bit by point 22 This book assumes that you have recently read and remembered the first book There are some revelations in here that I did not immediately got because the first book was to hazy in my memory.Other then these things this is a nice, modern take on low fantasy. Just amazing This was great fantasy, beautifully written and what a tale it told I read like 80% in one day, I could not put it down I was immersed in it.In the last book the Emperor was killed and the aftermath left the City weak This is a messed up place and I like it for that They are fighting on many fronts and they are sending out every man and woman they can Which in turn is stupid because their numbers are dwindling It s a City on its last legs Constant warfare, a blockade at sea And Immortals fighting among themselves.My favorite POV was Rubin, a son of the 7 families, spy, loyal to Marcellus, and sent on missions that will probably get him killed.Then there was Em and Evan The orphan and the soldier She had something others wanted, and he was loyal to the bone.And yes so many others Valla who becomes a bodyguard Members of the 7 families the Immortals All playing their part in defending the city, and the city s destruction The book is really about the City and those who live there, and I also found out why they live there Why it was created and at the end, was this the end Yes, everything fell into place coughs in one way or another But the aftermath, there are still stories to tell, and I would love to read , but I am happy with the ending I got Still, I need.It was masterfully crafted And a tale I could not stop reading I recommend it, but you really should read The City first Lots happened in that one This is fantasy after all.Did I say it was great It was great. took me a damn long time, but I finally managed to make it through awesome read, thrilling conclusion, and it wasnt clear until very near the end how stuff would end up might have felt rushed to some, but it was nice I thinkwhat IMO separates this novel from a multitude of other fantasy novels is the honey smooth writing, the language, it just reads so damn nice and what I thought it excelled in was in depicting the horrors of war fighting especially scenes where soldiers died in multitudes and viscera was flying all over the place, the smell of and urine and all that smells around a battlefield filled with corpses, ditches filled with bodies and their comrades stepping on their co fighters corpses to get acrossa nice read, and here s hoping that Mrs Gemmell writes novels set in this world maybe in the past, or in the future, it sure has the potential
