The Burning Stone by Kate Elliott is the third in her Crown of Stars series.
My library no longer carries the first or second books, so I tried to start with this one. Unfortunately, there was too much back-story for me to dig through. So, I put it down before getting to page 100.
I bought a used copy of Jaran, Kate Elliott’s first novel, some time ago. When I launched into true bibliophage mode in 2010, I looked through my bookshelves for author’s I’d liked. That’s how I got started reading more of these! Read the rest of this entry »
The final book in the trilogy by Kate Elliott, Traitors’ Gate, follows through on all the promises of character development in the first two books, but is a tiny bit light in the climactic struggle against the bad guys. But, I was in it for the people, anyway, so I give this an enthusiastic two thumbs up.
Something about this series really sticks in my head – a mood or setting or something.
Must find more books by this author!
Shadow Gate is the second, hefty, book in this series by Kate Elliott.
It’s an excellent series – great world-building and mysteries and conflicts. The characters are absorbing.
I had much less trouble keeping track of who is who in this second book, compared to how often I was puzzled in Spirit Gate. Happily, not too many new characters are added 🙂
