    One thought on “Lady of Mercy”

    1. This was my least favourite of the series because the male lead was hardly in it and it was filled with too many people that just didn't matter! Really frustrating

    2. Genre: High FantasyThis book was slow. The core of the story of the series (imo) is the relationship between Erin/Sara and Stefanos. The last time they interact in this book is about page 20, which I'm sure explains some of why the book was slow.If the first book was Erin falling in love with Stefanos, and the second was Stefanos falling in love with Erin, then this book was Erin coming to accept that love alone is not enough. Of course, it's also about Stefanos, finally, centuries later, collec [...]

    3. Review first published at Fans of Michelle Sagara WestThe eponymous Lady of Mercy is, of course, Erin. During the first book, Into the Dark Lands, Erin has ruled as an Empress at Stefanos' side, providing his people with a mercy unknown to them before, before mysteriously disappearing. Form that time, legends have been created, speaking of a time when the Lady of Mercy would come again to the Empire and free its people from the Dark Heart and its First Servant, Stefanos.At the end of Children of [...]

    4. 21.2.2017 - 3,5*Stejně jako u dvojky - je tam hodně prvků, které mě iritovaly. Ironické je, že kdyby tam nebyly, tak by prostě chyběly. Ve vývoji charakterů, v postupu dějové linie - a vykreslení a vysvětlení minulých událostí. Ale stejně jsem po celou dobu málem křičela frustrací - a při jedné určité scéně nejen křičela, ale i takřka brečela. Proč? Proč?V tomto dílu se toho stalo hodě. Ale pro někoho, kdo je věčně za ten prvotní náznak v jedničce a k [...]

    5. Despite the almost non-appearance of Stefanos, the story is still very much captivating to me as we explore the true skills of Erin, who has always seemed overshadowed by her lover in power. There is a lot more fighting and inner struggle in this book within our heroine and among other supporting characters, bringing the story a touch of high fantasy somehow diluted in the previous two books.

    6. I hadn't realized how good this writer is before being compelled to read The Sundered out of order (Lady of Mercy had no kindle edition). I read Lady of Mercy a year after I finished the series. The writing was compelling, lyrical to the point that even if the events unfolds slowly and I knew what happened next I was riveted. Powerful.

    7. I would really choose 2.5 if there was such a choice. I've been looking to complete the series for ages, and had just re-read BK 2 in the series before this. I thought the second book was fine, but this book seemed to have pacing problems. Plus I didn't really care for the in-chapter jumps in POV, it felt a little scattered.

    8. I still felt like we didn't have Erin as narrator often enough in this one, I like Darin well enough, but the first book was nothing but Erin, and that's who I want to hear about. There was definitely more going on in this one in comparison to the previous two and there was a nice little twist at the end.

    9. I really liked this book. I would never have guessed who Trethar was in a million years. I didn't trust him at first, but after he was really helping Erin, Darin, and Renar to retake Dagothrin, I decided that I must have been wrong. Little did I know that he had his own agenda.

    10. This review applies to the Sundered Series as a whole.Clearly this is a beginning effort, but already, West shows the imagination that marks her later works. This is terrific stuff. Yes, it is dark, but even with the awkward writing style, it is very powerful.

    11. I liked this one far better than the second book Children of the Blood and I'll gladly read get the last book from the library.

    12. I liked this series more for the fact that I had the misfortune of seeing what it could have been with a lesser author writing it in the horrible Fallen World series by Laura Thalasssa.

    13. I gave this one four stars because it was the first of the Series where I actually felt like there was some real hope for the future LOL. The first two books I found pretty dark.

    14. More high fantasy and it was not to my taste, but that doesn't mean it was bad fantasy. It was a little slow-moving but there is a lot of world-building going on; it just didn't click for me.

    15. Slow start, and doesn't capture the tension of the attraction between Erin and the First that made the predecessors in this series interesting.

    16. This was a pretty weak entry into the saga, I think. It may have been necessary to the total story arc, but reading it was more chore than pleasure.

    17. Predictable plot and character development. But, I was genuinely moved during certain scenes, which speaks to the strength of the writing.
