    Catherine Fisher really broke into the USA market with Incarceron and its sequel, Sapphique, which seems to have been her biggest hit in Britain, too The USA publisher appears to have then trawled her back catalogue for the most similar material and come up with this series The obvious difference between these books and most of Fisher s output is that they fallinto the SF camp than the fantasy camp They seem less old fashioned than several of Fisher s fantasies do mainly the ones that Catherine Fisher really broke into the USA market with Incarceron and its sequel, Sapphique, which seems to have been her biggest hit in Britain, too The USA publisher appears to have then trawled her back catalogue for the most similar material and come up with this series The obvious difference between these books and most of Fisher s output is that they fallinto the SF camp than the fantasy camp They seem less old fashioned than several of Fisher s fantasies do mainly the ones that show the strongest Alan Garner influence THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CURTAILED IN PROTEST AT GOODREADS CENSORSHIP POLICYSee the complete review here

    I actually really enjoyed this one I have not read the first one in the story so I had no clue about some of the things they were saying at first but the author did a great job of making it not really matter The world and idea for the book was interesting to me and I really enjoyed the inner conflicts that arose in some of the charactersespecially Carys a girl who has been a part of the Watch for a long time but who struggles with the things they make people do and how they treat everyone I actually really enjoyed this one I have not read the first one in the story so I had no clue about some of the things they were saying at first but the author did a great job of making it not really matter The world and idea for the book was interesting to me and I really enjoyed the inner conflicts that arose in some of the charactersespecially Carys a girl who has been a part of the Watch for a long time but who struggles with the things they make people do and how they treat everyone who is brought to them, as children, to join their ranks You never really know if she is going to turn traitor to The Relic Master or if she is going to help them on their continuing quest Full of adventure and twists and turnsdefinitely a good fantasy read

    The Makers are relying on Galen and student Raffi When Galen receives a message from them, about a lost heir to the throne of Anara, he and his apprentice know they must travel far and wide to find her With the help of their cat like friend the Sekoi, and their possible friend Carys, these two must attempt to bring some structure back to a world so torn apart PlotI feel like the whole find a member of the lost royal family to restore order has been done a lot of times before I wouldn t fin The Makers are relying on Galen and student Raffi When Galen receives a message from them, about a lost heir to the throne of Anara, he and his apprentice know they must travel far and wide to find her With the help of their cat like friend the Sekoi, and their possible friend Carys, these two must attempt to bring some structure back to a world so torn apart PlotI feel like the whole find a member of the lost royal family to restore order has been done a lot of times before I wouldn t find the general plot unique by any means But I can admit that Fisher has managed to spin it into a great story of her own I can t think of any clich s that go with this type of plot, so it s hard to say if it had any, but I don t think it felt that way to me WritingThe writing was well done I d never really had a problem with it, even in the first book Descriptions or what little Fisher gives us are done very well Usually I have trouble picturing buildings and other structures, but I didn t have any trouble in The Lost Heiress I should mention that the writing is very smooth at time and you can zip through a hundred pages without even being aware of it CharactersRaffi, our protagonist, has his good moments, but for the most part he s a bumbling fool who doesn t learn from his mistakes There are multiple times where he nearly gets himself and Galen killed It s no wonder Galen is constantly on his case The rest of the character, Galen, the Sekoi, and Carys, I found myself liking a lotin The Lost Heiress Galen and Carys especially got a chance to showcase their talents here The Sekoi was a character who captured my attention, and I wish to knowabout it and it s people s lore s and traditions Things I LikedI loved the section that was only about Carys In The Dark City I was irritated when the chapter would be one of her journal entries And now I d found myself craving for the next chapter that was about her She s become a muchfleshed out character and has become muchintriguing I d take her for a protagonist over Raffi any day Things I Didn t LikeThe lack of descriptions is still an irritating part of this book Yes, the reader does learn a little bitabout Anara as the story moves on, but it s not enough There are animals that are given no description, religious celebrations, like Flainsnight , that is never explained, and I m still utterly confused as to what type of magic the keepers of the Order actually do Is it like regular magic, or something else Who knows It sounds interesting, but even at the end of the second book the reader doesn t know how magic in this world works DiversityCarys is a girl who is muchcompetent than our actual protagonist, which is something you don t see every day Technically there is a genderless character the Sekoi That s about it, sadly OverallI liked The Lost Heiress a lotthan The Dark City It s still got its points where I m a bit iffy on the series, but I don t think the other two books will be a bore, if this book is any indication I must warn that it s a bit boring in the beginning, but things do eventually pick up I m very much eager to finish this series this is meant in a good way Here is a link to my notes

    Another fun read from Catherine Fisher Similar to the first book in the series, this one features some really great settings and unique characters I m still piecing together a few things about the world, primarily the religion and significance of the moons, and the magic system is a little New Age y for my tastes, but it s still a fun series One thing I really appreciate about it is that the religion has a tangible effect on how the characters live their lives, Galen in particular The last f Another fun read from Catherine Fisher Similar to the first book in the series, this one features some really great settings and unique characters I m still piecing together a few things about the world, primarily the religion and significance of the moons, and the magic system is a little New Age y for my tastes, but it s still a fun series One thing I really appreciate about it is that the religion has a tangible effect on how the characters live their lives, Galen in particular The last few chapters of the book especially painted a really beautiful picture of what I think my faith Christianity, though I don t feel like it s meant to map on to that specifically should look like, and I think that was exceptionally well done I like seeing the difference between Raffi and Galen relative to how long they ve been walking down their paths as well for example, Raffi islikely to get frightened despite one of the tenants of their religion being not to be afraid, or how much of their scriptures litanies Galen has memorized vs Raffi I think that s a difficult thing to capture as well as to keep in mind through writing editing, and Catherine Fisher did a great job with it.I will say that compared to the last book, I was a little less impressed with the plot and with Carys development I felt I had a bit of a harder time tracking with her this time especially in the last few chapters , and at times it didn t feel like there was a lot happening, even though there were events going on There was a little less of a sense of urgency, I guess Still excited to read the rest of the series though Well done

    Galen and Raffi have to find the Interex But they do not even know what it is let alone how to find it Galen realizes that the only place he will be able to get help is at the Artilin s Well, if they can find it.Meanwhile Cayrs, has been caught by a member of the Watch Will she be forced to turn in Galen and Raffi I really enjoy these books They are really short and packed full of action and awesome characters These stories are so short and so packed full of stuff, they remind me of TV Ma Galen and Raffi have to find the Interex But they do not even know what it is let alone how to find it Galen realizes that the only place he will be able to get help is at the Artilin s Well, if they can find it.Meanwhile Cayrs, has been caught by a member of the Watch Will she be forced to turn in Galen and Raffi I really enjoy these books They are really short and packed full of action and awesome characters These stories are so short and so packed full of stuff, they remind me of TV Maybe something like 24 or The A Team The story moves very quickly You find out something new or important in every chapter They are building towards a return of the makers But as readers we have a fuller understanding about the makers than the characters do We realize that when the makers come, there will be as much different response than the one the characters are hoping for.I love the layers of this story I love that every character is an unreliable narrator because they have clearly lost much technological and theoretical advancements This society is clearly in a dark age or an age of intellectual decline Yet their religion and their magic plays as very important roll in how each of the characters interact both with eachother and their world.PG violence

    Sometimes you get tired of reading about unlikely heroes tasked to save the world and other times you find the story to be engaging enough that you don t mind it repeating a well trod theme This is one of those other times Galen is a harsh man and no one knows this better than his student, Raffi Yet they are destined to be a part of the change Along their journey they continue to cross paths with Carys, a member of the Watch a group that brought an end to the relic masters way of life , a Sometimes you get tired of reading about unlikely heroes tasked to save the world and other times you find the story to be engaging enough that you don t mind it repeating a well trod theme This is one of those other times Galen is a harsh man and no one knows this better than his student, Raffi Yet they are destined to be a part of the change Along their journey they continue to cross paths with Carys, a member of the Watch a group that brought an end to the relic masters way of life , a thief lord and a Sekoi, furred humanoid These unlikely allies either help or hinder them and those lines frequently blur Action magic fantasy comedic pacing can be found at various points This YA book was as enjoyable as the first in this series and has me looking forward to reading the next one

    I listened to the audio book and it entertained me I give it 4.2 out of five stars.I think most of my issues with this book insufficient character background for the main character, rules of the magic system might have been answered in the first book of the series, but this is the only book I ve read in this world and by this author I would revisit both of them again.The pace was unrelenting which made it easy to get through the book in a short time.This felt like a middle grade fantasy nove I listened to the audio book and it entertained me I give it 4.2 out of five stars.I think most of my issues with this book insufficient character background for the main character, rules of the magic system might have been answered in the first book of the series, but this is the only book I ve read in this world and by this author I would revisit both of them again.The pace was unrelenting which made it easy to get through the book in a short time.This felt like a middle grade fantasy novel, and I can picture readers in that age group devouring the book with abandon If that s your genre, pick this series up start with the first book in hopes you won t face the same issues I did with the character and setting

    This book far surpassed the first book in the series With Carys s loyalty unsure of, Galen and Raffi must find the Interrex The new queen of Anara They need her so when the Makers coem she will be queen There s one problem though, She is in a Watch house, training to become a Watchspy Galen and Raffi rescue her and she believes them Now they just have to defeat the Watch I think that this book was well written This is because it has many different aspects to the plot of the book.
