Summary Angel of Storms

Among the tapestry weavers of Schpeta Rielle's peaceful new life has been shattered by a local war As defeat looms the powerful Angel of Storms appears and invites Rielle to join the artisans of his celestial realm But what will he reuire in return for this extraordinary offerDiscover the magic of Trudi Canavan. WARNINGThis review is completely biased and can probably not be trustedWhyWell Trudi Canavan is one of my favourite authors and has been really important for me for many many yearsAnd also I ve just started on a new medication that has made me temporarily hypomanicI ve lain awake for several nights and all I can think about is Rielle the Raen and Tyen And it feels especially weird considering I didn t really love the first bookRielle get s invited by the Angel to come and live with the other artisans in his what she thinks otherworldly realm Complications has her ending up with a group who calls themselves the Travellers who trades between many worlds She has to adapt to the constantly new environments and culturesTyen in the separated storyline is teaching technical magic at a school which is his whole life but still trying to find a way to turn the book Vella back to her human form The ruler of worlds suddenly returns after his disappearance over twenty cycles ago and he stricly forbids the teachings of magic and world travelling in general which makes everyone flee the school in panicTyen having no idea where to go ends up trying to warn his old friends from the school about the return of the ruler of worlds the RaenThe Raen is not like other villains I wouldn t even like to call him that He has the responsibility of the worlds on his shoulders and tries to make the best decisions even when no outcome is optimal And when you live for a thousand cycles you are bound to get some enemies and allies But what side is the right side This is what finally pulls Rielle and Tyen s storylines somewhat closer together crossing but not meeting They meet the same people visits the same worlds and struggles with their own feelings regarding the Raen s ruling Not like the two different books it felt like the previous novel was made of this time the two different storylines just expands the the plot and helps the worldbuilding take on newer heights And it s refreshing I usually tend to dislike characters like Rielle uiet a bit sheltered and na ve but she grew on me so much in just a few chapters than she did in the whole previous novel I like that she is a bit boring Everything is new to her she asks herself relevant uestions and the way she thinks is extremely interesting I like how she always wants to be true to herself and what she believes in she is strong in that way and is aware of being a bit manipulated from time to time even without reading their mindsThe mind reading is also very interesting and I thought it was going to be a lot confusing than it was it was somehow executed perfectly Tyen s overuse of the ability and Rielle s reluctance How would you change if you always knew what people liked and disliked about you We are constantly developing as people through our environments What would happen to ourselves with the constant change of worlds to adapt to and minds than preferable to judge us Are we changing to please ourselves through pleasing others or would this be the real you regardlessI can not have the next book released fast enough It s like a hunger

Angel of Storms

International No bestselling author Trudi Canavan returns with the second novel in the Millennium's Rule series her most powerful and thrilling adventure yetTyen is teaching mechanical magic at a school respected throughout the worlds Angel of MOBI #224 News arrives that the formidable ruler of all worlds long. Full Review at The Speculative Herald Angel of Storms the Millenium s Rule series continues to fascinate me While I enjoyed The Black Magician Trilogy I will confess to never loving it This trilogy is turning out to be a much better match for me Perhaps this is mainly because The Black Magician trilogy is young adult where as this one I believe is not Regardless of the reason I tend to be captivated by this series and find it incredibly fun to read This is the second in the trilogy and while I felt like there was a good deal of progression in this book including wonderful details about the world there is still so much left to resolve that I actually had to verify if this was a trilogy or a longer series And it is definitely listed as a trilogy so I suspect that final book is going to be packed with lots of excitementFor readers of the first book I know many were hoping for a uick joining of Rielle s and Tyen s story lines in this book For those that are new to the series the first book Thief s Magic is told through those two POVs with no apparent connection between them In the first book they were essentially two completely separate stories being told alternately through the book The separate story lines were not something that bothered me at all in the first book but for those of you that were feeling a bit impatient wanting them to come together with the last book I hate to inform you there is not a uick joining of the two However from the beginning of this second book it becomes much clearer how they might relate to each other One of my chief impressions with the first book was how I was eually excited for both POVs I enjoyed each so much I was slightly disappointed to switch to the other only to uickly be excited to be back with that character I found I continue to really enjoy both of the main characters and their stories in this one If was pushed to pick favorites I would say I probably preferred Tyen a bit in the first book but Rielle a bit in this one But the difference is really minuteThe Angel of Storms is a whirlwind of a book doused with magic that shows no mercy tests both loyalties and faith It reveals a much clearer picture of the world journeys to unexpected places tests both protagonists to their limits and ends on a note that will leave you craving the next book

Trudi Canavan æ 2 Review

Believed to be dead is back and enforcing his old laws including the one forbidding schools of magic As teachers and students flee Tyen is left with no home and no purpose except the promise he made to Vella the sorcerer imprisoned in a book Tyen must decide what he is willing to do to free herAfter five years. After the cliffhanger at the end of book one I was kind of curious how the author would solve that Well to be honest she didn t She kept her decent writing style her way of setting words onto paper and how she created everything For all those who never read a book written by the author let me tell you this you need to get used to her style her kind of fantasy and how she sees thingsIf you can manage that you ll find some sort of entertainment one way or the other in her books that is a promiseAbout five years have gone by since the last events at the end of book one Thief s Magic Tyen is teaching at Liftre and living kind of a normal life Rielle has done everything Valhan asked of her to restore the magic she took from her world Now both are again in a position where they have to change their lives Rielle survives the attack of a powerful sorceress by accident and Tyen has no other choice but to become the spy of the powerful Raen to find a way to keep his promise he once gave Vella Now both are part of a rebellion each of them in their own way they didn t want and Raen plays a game that isn t that easy to understandGuess I ll have to admit that I am not a huge fan of Trudi Canavan Her style isn t really mine The reason why I started reading this trilogy in the first place was I fell in love with the cover of the German edition of Thief s Magic you can read my review about it here I asked for a copy got it and started reading But I wasn t as happy or hooked as anyone told me I would beYes Trudi Canavan has her very own way of writing fantasy novels and not everyone will like it Despite the fact that I don t consider myself a real fan of hers I do see that she has a great fantasy Though it isn t always easy to see what she tries to show her readers Angel of Storms is told by an invisible narrator and the writing style is as debauched as ever You need some patience and stamina to make it to the end If you can do that you will discover a very entertaining and haunting last third of this story And that is it what saves this novel from the total misery Don t get me wrong The fantasy in this book is not the kind of fantasy you might be used to Canavan sees things in her head and puts them onto paper that are uite astonishing colorful exiting and frightening at the same time But nonetheless you need to read all of it if you want to have the slightest change to follow the plot And she uses a lot of words and with that I mean literally a lot to tell her readers the adventures of Rielle and Tyen Many figures are showing up in this second book of her Millennium s Rule trilogy Not all of them are good not all of them are important and not all of them like Rielle or Tyen It is sad to say but if you are looking for Pergama aka Vella if you like her that much like I do then you will be disappointed She isn t showing up very much so Angel of Storms is a lot less fun and humorous than the Thief s MagicBut the change Rielle goes through how see starts seeing things the way she keeps her instincts and how she trusts them that is great to watch She is so fair to herself and others to admit when she made a mistake when she has to learn that she needs to see things in a different way to really be able to understand And she is the one who is not buyable At the end I was kind of surprised in a positive way to see how she was acting Baluka is another good character in this novel He is the son of a leader young and his way of seeing things is not as typical as you might think He is used to use magic whenever he needs it Has no remorse to do what he does and when Raen takes something from him right in front of him he starts to fight and search for it in his very own way And becomes a man Rielle wouldn t have wanted in the first place probably Good heavens this was sometimes a real torture And I am still asking myself if it was really necessary to describe everything and anything in such an abundant way My head is still spinning Not sure if I will read the last part of this trilogy too Originally posted on Gone With The Books

    Trudi Canavan is an author whose books I've enjoyed a great deal in the past but reading her recent works I've begun to uestion her approach as an author The author spends an inordinate amount of time hashing over events as an inner monologue for one of her characters She does this in excruciating detail going over every step of why the character feels the way they do only to re run nearly the same inner disc

    5 Stars ExcellentThe SetupFollowing on from the structure of the first book the story is split between the characters of Tyen and Rielle Rather than the split narratives strictly tackling different themes and approaches to storytelling Angel of Storms begins to blur the lines between narratives as their paths begin to cro
