    About "Barbara Hambly"

    1. Barbara Hambly

      aka Barbara HamiltonRanging from fantasy to historical fiction, Barbara Hambly has a masterful way of spinning a story Her twisty plots involve memorable characters, lavish descriptions, scads of novel words, and interesting devices Her work spans the Star Wars universe, antebellum New Orleans, and various fantasy worlds, sometimes linked with our own I always wanted to be a writer but everyone kept telling me it was impossible to break into the field or make money I ve proven them wrong on both counts Barbara Hambly

    1. This review is based on my latest re-read, but this is a book I've read several times before (though not in a few years) and Hambly is one of my most favorite authors. So salt accordingly.In my younger days, I mainly clustered tightly around a small ring of trusted authors, devouring new books as they came out (not nearly fast enough) and re-reading old, beloved books in the between-time. For whatever reason, these days, I've spread my reach much further and try legions more new (to me) authors [...]


    2. Dieser Band spielt 6 Monate nach Band 1.Was passiert, wenn in einer patriarchalen Welt, in welcher Männer Frauen nach Blumen benennen und ihnen neue Namen geben, wie es ihnen passt oder sie einfach verkaufen, wenn in dieser Welt der männlichen Macht und der männlichen Magier, diese Magier plötzlich ihre Fähigkeiten verlieren?!Und als wenn das nicht genug wäre, nun entwickeln die ehemals machtlosen Frauen und Wesen, die über Generationen versklavt wurden magische Fähigkeiten und müssen s [...]


    3. I was obviously on a Barbara Hambly kick. Sometimes when I read several books in a row by an author, I like the books but I'm ready to put that author away for a while (Charles de Lint is one that leaps to mind for this). Apparently three Hambly's in a row didn't trip that response.This one is apparently not the first book she's set in the universe, but I was unfamiliar with it. Luckily, missing the first book didn't hinder my enjoyment o the story. (I should mention that it has a fairly heavy d [...]


    4. I felt this one was better than its sequel, but still basically just a workmanlike piece of authorship. I felt many of the plot beats were either too predictable or irrelevant. Still, the setting remains intriguing, if occasionally questionable at times ( why, for example, are there caravans in the desert if there is no one on the other side of the desert to trade with?). The core premise I find very solid, though, and the characterization is generally good (though a few of the men I find a bit [...]


    5. The sequel to Sisters of the Raven is very similar and concerns the same characters as the first. Whole villages are abruptly killing themselves, and Oryn, Summerchild and Raeshaldis try to determine why. A strange green mist, broken glass and otherwordly voices are their only clues. Meanwhile, King Oryn has to somehow survive a series of ordeals in order to remain king—but the spells that formerly made the crocodiles turn aside and poison harmless are no longer working. It’s an exciting boo [...]


    6. Another book set in the changing world where magic has begun to fade from men and appear among women. Further intrigues try to control the transfer of power and new information comes to light about the nature of power itself. I really like how this book is set in an arid climate with what I would imagine an Arabic culture to be like. It gives a very exotic feel to the reading experience and yet the characters are very approachable. New friends.


    7. -A continuation of Sisters of the Raven. I guessed one of the mysteries, but not the other one, though it was staring me in the face. It sucked me in and I enjoyed it, but the characters had so many bad days, it was a relief to finish. (April 06, 2007)


    8. Not quite up to the standard of Sisters of the Raven, but still an excellent exploration of a fantasy world that feels extremely real. Do not read if you have an aversion to feminism.***Update: I'd write pretty much the same review again.


    9. Once again Hambly was able to breathe new life into standard topics. The is the second of 2 books in this set and it picked-up a little farther in the future from the ending of the first book which was nice. This story was a little less smooth than the first book but still a wonderful read!


    10. I really love this world Hambly has built but I think she's done with it. This is a satisfactory ending even if I personally am left wanting more.





    11. I enjoyed this book. Because it was recommended to me, I had high hopes, and I wasn't as impressed with it as I anticipated.


    12. Actually liked this more than the first book since it focused on mostly one character. Maybe it's just because it's finally hot outside, but the desert setting was even more interesting.



    13. Not to bad. I'm wondering if there is another in the series since most people tend to write in trilogies instead of duologies.



    14. I thought this one was better than the first. However, I do not understand the need for the romance between Jethan and Shaldis. It seemed very forced and I could see it coming from book one.



    15. It took me a long time to get into this book. Once I did, I enjoyed it. I would like to read the 'Sisters of the Raven' book that goes with it.
