NEW [The Flames of Shadam Khoreh] Author Bradley P. Beaulieu
This is the final book in the series and I efinitely liked how everything was wrapped up I like the complexity of this world I also Two Brothers, One Tail dislike the complexity The reasoning for thisouble standard Becuase it makes this a tough series to get into and one which I Woman Much Missed doubt many will enjoy However if youo manage to wrap your head around it I think that this is a series which you might enjoy and I certainly liked this one probably the most In this story we follow our three main characters from the previous book Nasim Atiana and Nikandr We know that they have long been on a uest to try and save the world from an evil woman who seems intent on trying to Why Americas Top Pundits Are Wrong destroy it Together they have already achieved some of their aim but in this book they need to finish it all and fight for the final timeThe start of this book is all about Nasim being under the influence of another player This person he travels with has the ability to control him via mind and so he s not necessarily achieving what he wants to and he s in a tricky situation of foggy thought for a lot of the startNikandr and Atiana manage to be together for a fair amount of this book but as we go on we see the pressure begin to test and fracture them at various points I like them both but Atiana has long been my favourite of the two On the whole I felt like this was a good ending but it wasn t anything mind blowing Iid get surprised by how Beaulieu chose to end it but it wasn t something I ve never seen before just Citizen Cain done in his own way 35 series overall very likeable but complex too The Art of the Subtle EpicI get bored with a story that becomes predictable as I am sure most readerso Also like most readers I enjoy twists and turns a little of the unexpected When I started reading The Flames of Shadam Khoreh I was not to sure what to expect Mr Beaulieu has a talent for not giving away his story he avoids predictability in the most subtlest of fashions So I spent my time reading the last book of his trilogy The Lays of Anuskaya never sure what was going to happen but sure of the fact that I was going to enjoy it The novel picks up right where the second book The Straits of Galahesh left off Nikandr Atiana and Nasim are all racing to save the world from widening rifts between the world of the physical and the world of spirits but once again along their separate paths Most fantasy enjoys the classic fellowship paradigm a group of multi talented individuals coming together for common cause and all that Beaulieu throws this right out the window While his heros work together for a common cause they Trail of Secrets do so alone They will be able to stand on their own or not at all They become successful in their isolation out of their intellectual abilities then their physical abilities another aspect I enjoyed over the whole of the trilogy The individual struggles of each character are truly engrossing Nikandr struggles in his relations with his own people for many still view him as a traitor and bent on completing an unimportant and crazy task He is concerned over hisifficulties in communing with the air spirits or havahezhan he had a previous connection to and of course stopping the end of the world Atiana s struggles revolve around her talents in taking the How to Train a Cowboy dark which she finds she cano multiple and One Special Moment disturbing ways She also has herirect battle of wills with the villainess Sariya which is characterized by mind tricks and the gathering of Matri the women of the Islands who can take the A Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain dark Nasim the person the story spins around most has to cope with the reality of the world meaning the truth of the original sundering which created the rifts This truth about the rifts help him realize Sariya s true intentions a head of the others He also understands the sacrifice that must be made to stop her There is also a great list of supporting cast that brings the story to life Styophan for example and his time spent among the Hael a people who have been at war with the Empire of Yrstania for centuries He goes to them at the orders of Nikandr s brother to make them allies of Anuskaya in their war against the Empire only to find the Empire is already there wooing them His story becomes a unpredictable blood soaked trek through the backoor of the Empire itself To the reader and to Styophan myself it seems that his journey is a side uest that runs along the main one under taken by Nikandr and company However Styophan is something a linchpin to the overall success of the heros Just one of many twists This last installment I could sum up as a subtle epic tale What I mean by this is that while there is tension and conflict it is not ealt with by sheer force by the heros or the author The means by which the heros meet their challenges is by guile and intelligence compassion and forethought Mr Beaulieu keeps the vulnerability of his characters established in the previous novels intact as if to remind the readers that regardless of what happens to a person to make them capable and formidable they are still human and subject to all human faults Indeed the biggest twist to the whole story is set in their ina. The Flames of Shadam Khoreh begins nearly two years after the events of The Straits of Galahesh Atiana and Nikandr continue their long search for Nasim which has taken them to the esert wastes of the Gaji where the fabled valley of Shadam Khoreh lies But all is not well.

Inds of Khalakovo was the beginning and it introduced the characters and places The Straits of Galahesh The Mommy Makeover developed things further by adding layers to the story arc Now The Flames of Shadam Khorehelivers a wonderful and unforgettable fantasy feast for fans of epic fantasy because the new revelations and happenings are brilliantBradley P Beaulieu has every reason to be proud of this book because he handles all the elements and the story arc perfectly and keeps on revealing interesting things In this book the author brings things nicely together It was great to read about the characters the rifts the wasting The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives disease and other thingsIn my opinion The Lays of Anuskaya trilogy is one of the best new fantasy trilogies because there are only a few new trilogies eg Martha Wells Books of the Raksura Courtney Schafer s The Shattered Sigil CS Friedman s Magister Trilogy David Anthony Durham s The Acacia Trilogy Blake Charlton s The Spellwright Trilogy that have as muchepth originality and style This trilogy is a perfect example of what a talented author can achieve when he puts his mind and heart into writing an original storyThe time gaps between The Winds of Khalakovo The Straits of Galahesh and The Flames of Shadam Khoreh allow the author to A River of Royal Blood (Untitled, develop the characters and keep things interesting for the reader Each character seems to mature effortlessly and naturallyuring the time gapsThe characters continue to First Blood develop and mature in this book which is good because it s nice to read about them I ve enjoyed reading about the characters and their lives so it was great to see what happens to them Theialogues between the characters were perfectNikandr Atiana and Nasim have been my favourite characters since the beginning of the series so I was thrilled to read about them The other characters are also handled superbly I love how Bradley P Beaulieu writes about the The Palliser Novels different male and female characters because they re portrayed brilliantly Their characterization is surprisingly complex and layered In my opinion the author has a talent for creating believable and realistic characters whoevelop in their own ways and make their own choicesOne of the best things about The Lays of Anuskaya is that the magic system is original It s fascinating to read about the elemental spirits and how the characters harness their powers The author has created clear rules for how the magic works and explains things bit by bit so the reader gradually absorbs knowledge and becomes increasingly intrigued by the magic systemThe worldbuilding is beautiful and Men And Gods In Mongolia detailed in this book the worldbuilding is just as good as it was in the previous books Somehow the author has managed to create a realistic fantasy world which becomes even interesting with each new book The strong RussianEastern European feel of the world feels refreshinglyifferent and enticing because there are only a couple of fantasy books out there with similar settings and none of them are as complex as this bookWhat amazes me most is the author s ability to combine politics worldbuilding magic and characterization fluently He builds his fantasy world by revealing bits and pieces and puts the reader right in the middle of the happenings which is thrilling because the reader has to read the whole story in order to find out what s happening and how things will end I ve read uite a lot of fantasy books and I can say that this book is clearly Hunter Killer (Pike Logan different from all the other epic fantasy books that are being sold at this moment Steven Erikson Courtney Schafer CS Friedman and LE Modesitt Jr are the first authors that come to my mind when I think about the contents of this bookBy the way it s good that there are synopses of the first two books because readers may find them useful There s also an extensive glossary at the end of the book which is useful if readers happen to forget what certain words mean the readers have to remember uite a lot of words and terms so it s nice that there s a glossaryBefore I write the final words I ll mention that it has been nice to follow how Bradley P Beaulieu haseveloped his writing style with each new book and found his own voice I m eagerly awaiting his next book because he s a good fantasy authorThe Flames of Shadam Khoreh is an exceptionally well written suspenseful and ambitious fantasy book it s Bradley P Beaulieu s best book so far In terms of characterization worldbuilding and characterization it is uniuely fascinating and complex fantasy fiction This book fulfilled all my expectations and Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, delivered an excellent ending If you want to read refreshinglyifferent and original epic fantasy you must read Bradley P Beaulieu s books When you begin to read his books you won t stop until you ve read all of themHighly recommended to fans of uality fantasy The flames of Shadam Khoreh is a stunning climax to an amazing trilogy I couldn t stop reading the book to find out what happened to the characters and the twists and turns kept me guessing until the very end but the author very nicely wrapped up the trilogy without any loose ends Excellent book and trilogy to rea. E may be to treat with the Haelish warriors to the west of Yrstanla but Nikandr knows that the key is to find Nasim and a lost artifact known as the Atalayina Will Nikandr succeed and close the rifts once and for all The answer lies eep within the Flames of Shadam Khoreh.
Bility to iscern the truth in a timely manner Mr Beaulieu as an author applies the same attributes to his story crafting Never is the reader spoken Flying Scotsman Manual down to or bludgeoned withetails The tale winds around the land and it s people in a believable but unfamiliar way I have used the word subtle throughout this review and for good reason Plot events and character Alpha (Shifters, development takes place almost uietly and many times unexpected Whether it is Nikandr Atiana Nasim or Styophan I was always surprised by how they handled a situation I was always caught off guard by Mr Beaulieu As I stated in my review of The Straits of Galahesh no character is granted protection fromanger So I would be reading getting wrapped up into the tale fully expecting one thing to happen and then uite out of nowhere catastrophe Subtle like a assassin before you know they are there I wanted to write a much longer review but I feel that I could Whalerider damage the experience of others if Iid I can say that I have come to respect Mr Beaulieu s work He was able to leave me guessing as to the truth of the tale His characters while uiet and thoughtful were real and multifaceted Just before you think you have them figured out they surprise you The story itself was the same a surprise at every turn What I thought was to be a important Charlie Turns Into a T-Rex development in the story wasn t it was nothing but aistraction so that I wouldn t notice the twist coming up in the next chapter All in all I loved this rich world and wished only that there was I hope Mr Beaulieu will revisit the Islands of Anuskaya in a future work for there is much to learn of his world and Mr Beaulieu s skills as a fantasy author Excellent conclusion to a very interesting trilogy I found this book to be much easier to get into than the second one The Straits of Galahesh For what ever reason the first and third books spoke to me There is so much going on in this volume that it s Graphic Design For Everyone difficult to explain to anyone who hasn t read the first two books Any recommendation I can give would be to pick up the first books and try it out It s worth it This review is based upon an epub ARCThe Flames of Shadam Khoreh is the concluding book in the trilogy the Lays of AnuskayaFor my reviews of the first two excellent books see here for The Winds of Khalakovo and here for The Straits of Galahesh I came to these novels through an unusual Here s my spoiler free video review of the Lays of Anuskaya trilogy My Review Well this book made up for book 2 Excellent mind blowing finish Great series Now that was a great finale for the entire trilogy This book impressed me so much It improved on every aspect I had a problem with from the first two books whether it be a pacing issue or too complicated to follow This book was very well paced and since we had two other books beforehand the foundation was laid out for us Nikandr Atiana and Nasim are front and center once again However Styophan makes his leadebut after being a side character I wasn t uite sure if Styophan s transition from side to lead would have worked so late into the game but the author set up a great foundation for him right away to give his arc some meaning The story all together tied up everything uite nicely I Considering Kate (The Stanislaskis, don t feel like I have any unanswered uestions nor am I feeling unfulfilled I am so glad Iecided to pick this series up right away before jumping into this author s current ongoing series I think it really help me see whether or not he has evolved as a writerThe Winds of Khalakovo 45The Straits of Galahesh 45The Flames of Shadam Khoreh 55The Lays of Anuskaya 1315 Originally published at RisingshadowBefore I write anything else I ll mention that I ll try to write as spoiler free a review as possible so that I Sweetland don t reveal too much about what s going on and what s going to happen to characters because knowing too much about this book will spoil the fun of reading it This review is in eual parts a review about the previous books as it is a review about The Flames of Shadam KhorehI ll also mention that this review is based on a PDF ARCThe Flames of Shadam Khoreh stunningly continues the story which began in The Winds of Khalakovo and The Straits of Galahesh and takes the story further In The Flames of Shadam Khoreh the author leads his readers back to his magical fantasy world which is charmingly influenced by RussianTurkishEastern European cultures This book is the culmination of the trilogy and what a culmination it is I have to confess that I was very impressed by this book because in my opinion the author hasone his best to write a memorable and entertaining ending If I had to choose only one word to Art of Laurel and Hardy describe this book the word would be OUTSTANDING in capital letters because this book is truly outstanding and amazing in all possible ways I can t help but praise this book because I loved every page of itThe complex story arc of The Lays of Anuskaya works amazingly well because the author manages to keep all the plot threads in his hands and pushes the story powerfully forward by keeping the characters interesting and revealing new things about the world The War has moved from the islands to the mainland and the Grand Duchy knows its time may be limited if Yrstanla rallies its forces And the wastingisease and the rifts grow ever wider threatening places that once thought themselves safe The Dukes believe that their only hop.
