Mas sabe aqueles personagens q viram seus favoritos? Muitos kudos pra Allessandra, que, olha Apr 20, Melinda Snodgrass rated it really liked it. This is the second book in the Nessantico Cycle, and I liked it even better than the first book A Magic of Twilight and it was terrific.
For nighgfall a frequent problem in high fantasy is the absence of believable characters. They’re often just stand-ins for an archetype, or the walking embodiment of a quest. Not nighrfall in these books. Farrell has a masterful grasp of human sorrow and frailty, and he has me completely involved in his characters. He also is brave enough to allow his characters to age, and This is the second book in the Nessantico Cycle, and I liked it even better than the first book A Magic of Twilight and it was terrific.
He also is brave enough to allow his characters to age, and face the problems of xnoitecer people. It’s a book that also hits all my buttons because it’s about the clash between modernity and anoktecer to the old magical ways.
I highly nighftall both of these books. Jan 04, Mercurius rated it it was amazing. The sequel to the outstanding gem A Magic of Twilight, the second book in the trilogy does that most rare and precious of miracles in fantasy series and gets better than the first book. More political intrigue, anoitwcer courtly splendour, more exciting battles and new characters that keep you interested with each new plot twist. Unexpectedly, one of the characters 2009 the pleasure of being simply the funniest moments I have ever had with a fantasy novel, managing to cripple me with laughter.
I will no The sequel to the outstanding gem A Magic of Twilight, the second book in the trilogy does that most rare and precious of miracles in fantasy series and gets better than the first book. I will not spoil anything nightfalp his descent into madness rivals Black Adder and Monty Python in comedic value. Well written and Farrell keeps the plot moving at the perfect nightflal. I am continually astonished with the finesse of his writing, and am really looking forward to reading his other works after I finish this trilogy.
The one problem I do have is that like George R. Martin, he does have a rather brutal hand with his characters, though I will say no more but if you read this second book in particular I am sure you will understand my meaning.
Another good book from S. Very epic in nature – bringing back some characters you get to know from the first book nighhtfall introducing a new cast as well. Though I still liked book 1 a bit better, this was Another good book from S. Jan 28, Liviu rated it it was amazing Shelves: Spoilers for book 1 follow – though not much more than on the blurb Another addictive book from Mr. Farrell following a set of characters in power struggles involving the still great but slowly declining Nessantico, its Firenczian anoitecerr subject state, now a rival power and the Aztec-like Westlanders Set 27 years later after the events in Twilight, it follows mostly the new generation – Allesandra, her son Jan and her brother Fynn, Justi’s son Audric, Talis the successor of Mahri and his son Ni Spoilers for book 1 follow – though not much ahoitecer than on the blurb Another addictive book from Mr.
It’s not a bad book. In fact it’s a pretty good book. Which is why I’m having trouble understanding why, 75 pages from the end, I’m suddenly so interested in everything but finishing this book.
Oh my goodness look how dirty my room is! Must play it now! I bring this book with njghtfall everywhere but I never end up reading any of nightfa,l. I don’t know what happened! There’s something I don’t like about how these books ends. I’m not sure what it is.
Every main conflict in this series is war, and although war has lots of blood and guts and gore and death it just isn’t exciting in this book.
A thing I’ve noticed that bothers me a bit is that so far two of the stronger characters in the book Anna and The White Stone both had sexual tragedy in their pasts, even Allesandra has some abandonment issues. I wonder why strong women in this series seem to need some sort of tragedy to make them strong. I would give it a much higher rating but the pace was slow by the end, I got bored of reading it, and I just don’t like the time gaps between each series and how the main conflict is always war.
The Return: Nightfall
So I’m giving it two stars, just for the struggle it took to read by the end. Mar 10, James rated it it was ok Shelves: Its been 25 years since the events of A Magic Of Twilight and all is not well in the city of Nessantico. Conflicts within the church, with a breakaway state and with a distant empire all threaten the city and its various inhabitants. I really wanted to like this book. It had all of the right elements: But despite all of this, I never really connected with several of the cha Its been 25 years since the events of A Magic Of Twilight and all is not well in the city of Nessantico.
But despite all of this, I never really connected with several of the characters or really any of them in this book other than Alessandrawhich made it difficult to care about their plight and even more difficult to pay attention and keep track of all of the details.
It definitely deserves another read-through, but for now I just couldn’t get into it. The first to pages of this book were slow but then as the pieces anoiteecr together the reading was faster and more enjoyable. The story is told from the viewpoint of a dozen people. Even though anoutecer reader can see inside the minds of many characters there were still many surprises.
A Magic of Nightfall (The Nessantico Cycle, #2) by S.L. Farrell
There’s plenty of mystery, intrigue, and romance in. For the most part, I’d give the story four stars but I give it the extra star as I feel the author did a great job of tying up the loose ends in a complicated pl The first to pages of this book were slow but then as the pieces fell together the reading was faster and more enjoyable.
For the most part, I’d give the story four stars but I give it the extra star as I feel the author did a great job of tying up the loose ends in a complicated plot and a way that was both surprising to the anoiteccer and not so off-the-wall that the reader felt deceived.
Nov 24, Sandrigo Rosa Campos rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the best books about political intrigue I have ever had the pleasure to read. The time jump between the first one and A Magic of Nightfall was indeed a good decision, since I thought that the arcs of the main characters in the first book were already well knotted. I loved the fact that the book followed the relatives of the first book’s main characters, and the adding of new ones, like the assassin one of the most interesting characters my memory can recall made for an amazing overall b One of the best books about political intrigue I have ever had the pleasure to read.
Nightfall – definition of nightfall by The Free Dictionary
I loved the fact that the book followed the relatives of the first book’s main characters, and the adding of new ones, like the assassin one of the most interesting characters my memory can recall made for an amazing overall book that everyone who likes fantasy, political and religious intrigue should read. May 02, Paulo rated it really liked it Shelves: The second book in the Nessantico Cycle and a good plot that looks like a history in France, Middle Age, with magic added.
The books starts with a shocking death of a beloved character from the previous book decades after this book. Too many deaths, in fact, plus war and politics. I will not read the next book, because I have understood that this is not a series about characters, but about a city and what happens along the years To me this is the product of someone that studied writing as an academic.
They put together an unoriginal idea with a variation or two from something they’ve read. They pound out the book, get in on shelves and people like me buy it at a huge discount when Borders goes out of business. Feb 22, Ken rated it really liked it.
