    One thought on “City of Wonders

    1. Let me just say that all of the book covers in this series are awesome I have loved every one of them and the last one is even awesome, but I will get to that later He looked at her and winked In that tower is a queen He frowned for a moment Not because he was sad, but merely confused by the cultural differences For some reason they call their kings by that name when they have breasts In any event, I must go meet this queen and kill her And that makes you smile Tusk nodded Yes, but I smile for [...]


    2. Actual rating 3.5 stars.Bloody hell Now that s what I call war and violence and gore and death and destruction and stuff So delicious Surprisingly enough, this scrumptiously grisly environment didn t sit so well with my little crustaceans Believe it or not, my poor babies got slightly terrified as we were reading the book Our Shrimpy Lord knows how much they usually love their bloody bed time stories, but this one got them all scared and panicky and stuff So much so that Fleet Admiral DaShrimp a [...]


    3. 4.5 stars This was exciting The story was gory and extremely Grimdark The action was non stop I wouldn t stand a hope in hell of trying to explain what was going on The story is exciting yes but what is exciting to a fairly seasoned fantasy reader is that 3 books in to a 4 book series, I am still being surprised by this very different storyline It s impossible to see what s going to happen ahead of time I have no idea how this series will conclude but I won t be wasting much time finding out


    4.

    5. It has been a long time since I spent so much time second guessing what was coming next and who was doing what to who as I did with this book Three books in and there are still many many questions that have me on my toes waiting to start book 4.A fun read with BBB shortlist buddies for a boxing day start Thanks Choko for putting up with my endless chatter and hypotheses.City of Wonders pretty much picks up straight after The Blasted Lands We learn a little about the mounds, but still not enough [...]

    7. lynns books 2015 11 20 revCity of Wonders is book three in James A Moore s Seven Forges series Seven Forges being No.1 and The Blasted Lands No.2 Seven Forges got off to a very intriguing start, The Blasted Lands built strongly on that foundation and left us with a rather jaw dropping finish then City of Wonders came along and left no doubt that this series is firmly planted in the land of Epic Truly this is turning into a series to be reckoned with.I m not really going to go over much into the [...]

City of Wonders is a deeply immersive book, one that will hook you from start to finish The pace is fast and furious as this is the first book of the Great War The Sa ba Taalors attack with all their might in all directions, conquering the Fellein Empire from city to city, by way of land and by way of sea Where a city fell, a burning mountain springs from deep within the earth in an instant War truly has come I have been pining for this book since May 2014, the week I discovered the series, Seve [...]

    12. Another excellent volume, one that kept me reading late into the night One thing I love about this series is that Moore refuses to let his magic be bound by pesky rules, and as a result he can create some truly remarkable scenes On the other hand, this book follows the exact same formula as before position the key players then finish with a cataclysmic event that resolves nothing and creates only questions its the journey that sells this book, the creativity, the imagery, you can tell Moore is [...]

    20. What a great read Lots of fighting Lots of bloodshed A lot left to happen A surprise, to me, at the end I enjoyed this a lot.


    21. Oh Moore, you finally picked up the pace I don t know why, but the book before took me quite a while to finish, but this one had enough action sequences packed every other chapter to keep me going In total I would rate it 4.5 shiny stars, thus rounding it up to five We have seen the book titles move ever south From the discovery of the Seven Forges to the hardships in the Blasted Lands we ve now made it to the City of Wonders, aka Canhoon I still lament the lack of a map in this book because Moo [...]


    22. So much cannibalism in this book view spoiler Any and all animals around the forges were are humans that were transformed, and these animals and humans eat each other to survive hide spoiler This means that the General participated in cannibalism.I m getting the feeling that Ms Widow is the view spoiler body snatcher, but I can t find concrete evidence to prove this The part about being wealthy seems to confirm it, and how she so easily let herself be impaled after her husband died Hell, her say [...]


    23. c2015 FWFTB Canhoon, refugees, invading, Fellein, Sentinels Whoa There is a lot of gore and inventive ways to die in this book Slowly, the greater plan is coming together but who knows what this is Some of my favourite characters are still around but are less in the forefront than the wicked Sa ba Taalor who I might add, I was actually getting quite fond of in the previous book I had an idea of what was going to happen towards the end of the book but the cliffhanger was totally unexpected There [...]


    24. For the most part this was a pretty solid continuation of a great story However, it found that it lost its way a bit in that it chose to tell, in detail, the actions of a very large number of characters Not all of these seemed to be relevant to the main story This made the story bog down a bit for me After three volumes, we ought to know a little of what s the motivation of the evil gods The fact that I initially thought this was the final volume disappointed me a bit and might color my views.O [...]
