Helen Lowe s Daughter of Blood is a superb and satisfying sequel to The Heir of Night and The Gathering of the Lost It continues the story of Malian and Kalan in a magnificent way and surprises readers with plot twists and unexpected turns It s traditional epic fantasy with a wonderfully fresh and exciting twist, because the author uses well known elements in a refereshingly original way It s an enchanting and masterfully created feast of epic greatness that is genuinely worth reading and praisi [...]
I wish I had found the dramatis personae before I finished the book I bought the first two volumes together and so had no difficulty in following events, but the break before this book meant I was several hundred pages in before I really remembered who was who I kept confusing Nalin, Namath, Nerion, Nerith, Nerys, Nhairin, Nimor and Nindorith even though the names aren t very similar Apart from that, I love the whole series so far.
Daughter of Blood works to continue the story that Lowe has building for two books now, and since we have become acquainted with the world now, Lowe s storytelling is able to take centre stage, and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it, I loved the books focus of Kalan and I was so happy to see that returning to the wall didn t mean a return to the drab storytelling of the first book To put it simply, I found this book to be just short of a masterpiece I loved how whilst we were seeing the [...]
Great book in an increasingly well written and immersive series.My biggest complaint is that it jumps from character to character at the most inconvenient of times Too often I had gotten deeply invested in one character s story, only to be dropped into another character s completely uninteresting story Of course, 50 pages later I was complaining about being dropped out of that story So Yeah.Good prose, solid characters, excellent world building, and highly enjoyable Eager for the next book.
Best of the Wall of Night books so far I don t read that much fantasy, but this series is exciting and engaging This book gives you insight into the other side than the other books and I can see where Lowe might be headed, trying to show how there are two sides to any story.
Better than the second one in this series I love the people we meet But it is as if there is something missing from the story I might have to reread the series to get a better understanding of the storyline.
Best book so far in the series Great story line, characters, twists and a most enjoyable read Difficult to put down Can t wait for book 4 now
I tried so hard to eke this book out I went to bed at midnight instead of 3am I read some of the really good bits out loud to myself it s great you should try it I looked up oriflammes and massifs, and a couple of other technical terms that I kind of knew but wanted a PROPER picture of in my head I still finished too fast, but this book lived up to every expectation I had of a great world builder and character writer Helen Lowe is all about the people Their whys and wherefores, the horrible comp [...]
This series shouldn t work It s too sprawling, with POV characters, geography and plot threads everywhere like an overstuffed pillow that s burst bazillions of characters with similar names, extensive dream vision sequences, and melodrama villains with pointy armour battling heroes and heroines with suspiciously awesome combat and magical powers I could have done with a summary of the preceding book 1 and 2 at the start, because I could barely remember all the things that happened I felt the aut [...]
Another great installment of the series I like how the plots are coming together and are heading back towards the Wall The introduction of new characters at this stage is usually painful and awkward but in these cases it doesn t feel contrived or forced at all One thing I noticed, however, particularly towards the end, was a distinct lack of Malian s perspective We get plenty of other character POVs, and it makes her seem a bit like a Mary Sue she has all the answers to the pressing problems Eve [...]
Helen Lowe in her new book, Daughter of Blood Book Three in The Wall of Night series published by Harper Voyager gives us another adventure with Kalan.From the back cover Malian of Night and Kalan, her trusted ally, are returning to the Wall of Night but already it may be too late The Wall is dangerously weakened, the Nine Houses of the Derai fractured by rivalry and hate And now, the Darkswarm is rising .Among Grayharbor backstreets, an orphan boy falls foul of dark forces On the Wall, a Daught [...]
I enjoyed books 1 and 2 but this one really hit the spot I like that fact that Lowe isn t afraid to spread out her story much of this book doesn t actually feature our hero Malian but doesn t lose track of the overall picture narrative arc She knows that we actually don t really care about reading all 5 years of Malian s training something a certain fantasy author could learn a lot from , we can just move the plot forward.And events really start to accelerate here we learn a lot about what is r [...]
I don t read a lot of epic fantasyokay I don t read any causehave you seen the size of those books Years ago Helen Lowe published Heir of Night, the first book in a four book epic fantasy series It was only 458 pages long and I wanted to help an author outwell, I got hook hard and fast I wasn t the only one, cause it won some awards, most notably, the Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Newcomer 2012 She was the first woman to ever win a Gemmell Award there are three.Here we are at book t [...]
So much better than the last one Instead of huge chunks of time seeming to just drag along like we saw in the first two books, this one picks things up and keeps a steady, intense pace throughout We also spend way time with the focus being on our main characters rather than hopping all over between main and secondary characters.Of the main characters, this one seems to focus most heavily on Kalan so we get to see his character growth first hand While we do see bits of Malian, they are small and [...]
So I thought I d be done with these books after this one, but you can imagine my shock when I learnt there would be a forth book Yep there s going to be another book probably next year and well I thought this was the last one dammit dammit dammit Guess that means book four will be what 900 pages A summery for Daughter of Blood A failing wall, a broken shield, and an enemy that will exploit every weakness .Malian and Kalan have recovered two of the three legendary weapons of the Derai, but alread [...]
4.5 stars from Rebecca, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersDaughter of Blood 2016 , is the third book in Helen Lowe s four book WALL OF NIGHT series, preceded by The Heir of Night and The Gathering of the Lost It s been a while since I read the last book, so it took a few chapters to untangle the far reaching web of characters and plotlines, but soon I was back on track and re immersing myself into t [...]
Daughter of Blood is the third book in Helen Lowe s Wall of Night series Helen Lowe has a beautiful, lyrical style and has built a complex and intriguing world Daughter of Blood continues directly on from the previous book, Gathering of the Lost, as Kalan and Malian, the Heir of Night, make their separate ways back to the Wall of Night The mood of this instalment is much darker and the scope of this wonderful story continues to grow More secrets are revealed Some new and fabulous characters are [...]
I couldn t put this down Another exciting installment in the Wall of Night series My only problem with the book is that the author constantly references older stories, legends and cultural icons within this book but rarely takes the time to flesh them out It gets a little annoying after a while Perhaps someday that will be a companion book to the four book series This book ends in a good place with a few big reveals and an exciting set up to the final conflict of the story I certainly hope the f [...]
I strongly recommend re reading the first two books in the series if it has been a while since you read them I did not, and I regretted it very much as I had a hard time getting into the story, partially because there are very few looks back at what happened before.That being said, once I finally got my head into it, I really enjoyed Daughter of Blood The story gets complex with this third novel, and it ties up very nicely with previous events near the end The fight scenes are nicely laid out, [...]
This is a nice, somewhat dark fantasy series not too unlike the Kencyrath series starting with God Stalk Lone girl, prophecies etc this one is a little bit everything goes according to prophecy then the Kencyrath series, though here too things go really badly at times.Some interesting world building, and ok characters.Definitively readable fantasy books, albeit not free of cliche at times.
Absolutely riveting I could not put it down
Published 2016 Helen Lowe is somewhat incredible in the detail and complexity she is able to work with in her novels Daughter of Blood is no exception The 3rd in the Wall of Night series is a whopping 714 pages The glossary itself is 19 pages of reference Could not put it down Considering the pacing sofar I would say there are at least two , possibly three works left to conclude the saga Waiting will be the worst part of all.
EnthrallingI haven t enjoyed and epic fantasy for years This is a brilliant series Well drawn characters, fascinating world buildg and a twisty plot My only disappointment is that I though it was a trilogy and it s not So while I m disappointed not to see a resolution, I have another book to look forwRd to.
Back to the previous storyline with the Derai again, and a less confusing narrative this time, even when one of the main characters goes undercover things draw together for a massive climax and deep secrets are revealed.
Absolutely fabulous series I have read the first three books in a little over a month.I couldn t put them down The story line gets intriguing I can t wait until 4 comes out next year
can t wait for book 4 awesome
Just read this in a 6hour straight stretch so my mind is a mess and it s 6am but I m coming back with a full review
Really enjoying this series, the world and characters Looking forward to the 4th novel
Helen Lowe s Wall of Night series is one of my favourites Just read it And re read they only get better Really looking forward to the next one.
Awesome book, very well written Love the series.
