Storm Breaking Summary ↠ 0 Mercedes Lackey ✓ 0 Review Isked their lives triggering one of these antiue but potent tools of death to unleash a monstrous burst of mage energy With this explosion of magical power Karal Firesong and their companions have temporarily counteracted the ever increasing waves of the mage storms But they know that this desperate action will not save them they have bought themselves precious time but are still far from a permanent solution They know now that the mage storms are an echo through time of the prehistoric Cataclysm which destroyed Urtho's Tower created the vast and barren Dorisha Plains and permanently warped th. I thought we were back in Valdemar but the envoys in the alliance travel to the tower of one of history s best mages a guy named Urtho who faced off and defeated a blood mage named Ma ar by setting off a device that destroyed all magic spells In the process Urtho s tower was destroyed and Ma ar s hideout was decimated like a crater hit it In contemporary Valdemar that crater is now a lake around which a village has popped up so that s niceKaral and the rest of the cast are at Urtho s tower to see if they can find another device created by the crafty tinkerer that might counteract the last wave that will hit one that is likely to destroy everything as it changes living things into monsters In fact these waves the undo spells are a historical echo coming back as the result of Urtho hitting the NO TURNING BACK button all those thousands of years agoReaders are also sent to two other settings Elspeth and Darkwind travel to Tremane in Hardorn as he is the newest ally to Valdemar and we get to know Melle the new heir to the Eastern Empire now that Tremane clearly isn t coming back Both settings demonstrate just how different Tremane and Melle would rule the Eastern Empire but I found Melle s story line a snooze Lackey falls into telling and my emotional attachment was zero Melle would silence food riots and he d wish for the current emperor s death and he would make a backdoor alliance with the captain of the army but it felt that nothing was at stake Do I care about the faceless mass living in the Eastern Empire NoI started to feel emotionally detached in Karal s scenes at Urtho s tower too What was it that was keeping me from caring Then it dawned on me no one has died no one I cared about anyway since Vanyel s timeline And when characters do die they have the honor of coming back as a deity s avatar so they re not really goneWhat the team at Urtho s tower was doing and how long they had to do it was unclear which also made me feel like nothing was at stake Clearly people lived through the destruction caused by Urtho when he defeated Ma ar or there wouldn t be people in the present so what is at stake Will everything living continue to turn into rage monsters Will people who can use magic simply die I honestly have no ideaAs Firesong Sejanes and An desha among others translate Urtho s ancient tongue so they can figure out what each device does if anything readers are weirdly given no descriptions other than they settle on a cube puzzle to be their final solution I felt like I didn t know what anyone was doing in the tower Give me some translations of Urtho s documents or tests run on a device or what each device deemed not useful does or what the devices even look like somethingTremane s sections were much interesting as Lackey gives faces and value to the people he rules and when one character gets lost hungry cold etc I care about himher and was interested in how Tremane would react We also get some new features wizard magic and what is going on in Iftel in Tremane s story line so heads up for an exciting return to mind magic and intrigueThis review was originally published at Grab the Lapels

Storm Breaking Summary ↠ 0 Mercedes Lackey ✓ 0 Review Eir world than two thousand years ago And they also know that if they don't find a way to banish these magical vibrations they will culminate in another Cataclysm this time destroying their world for good But the Vault is not the only thing buried for centuries below the Dorisha Plains and camped in the ruins of what once was the workplace of the most ingenious mage their world has ever known the desperate allies soon come to realize that their solution may lie beneath the dust at their feet The saving of their world just might be accomplished by the work of a man who has been dead for millenn. This is my least favorite of the Mage Storms books by far Lackey had a lot on her plate wrapping up this series as it ends the core Valdemar stories that started this journey Every uestion we had leading up to now is being answered Unfortunately Lackey tried to fit too much into this single book There are too many concurrent plots and characters for pacing to work well There are too many things that needed to be wrapped up and a few that we didn t need to have wrapped up which Lackey tried to do any way Speaking of things I never bought I could have done entirely without the MellesCharliss plotline Melles plotting and machinations to take over the throne were boring I don t think Lackey ever found Melles uniue voice so when I spaced out reading his sections I sometimes confused him and the Army Commander On the other hand I love how Elspeth and Darkwind become envoys in Hardon Tremaine s character is one of my all time favorites but I am comfortable watching what happens in Hardon from Elspeth and Darkwind s perspective than Tremaine Being an outside is much interesting when it comes to earth binding And honestly I don t know if Lackey would have done this fascinating bit of magic justice if written from Tremaine s perspective She nailed all the Hardon content It s going to be difficult for me to say goodbye to many of these characters Particularly Karal Karal s character is uniue compared to all the other Valdemar voices I love that he is a priest a young man with a mentor without a mentor with a community of mentors and can connect so deeply with everyone around him Karal is the most spectacular unremarkable character I ve ever had the honor of reading about I will miss them all
