Song of the Sword Reviews
Bailey and Tremelo rebelled publicly against Queen Viviana, but the hoped-for revolution is still a distant dream. Driven to the tunnels, hiding from those who would turn them in out of fear or because they believe in the power of Dominance, the rebels are trying to figure out a plan. Tremelo wants to tinker and create something that can strengthen the bond. Many of his followers want war. Bailey just wants to not be sitting around. But before they can come up with something concrete, circumstances may decide for them . . .I really liked the first book, wasn't as impressed with the second, and found this one to be an okay ending. There's so much here that I wish had gotten more focus. Phi's dream of flight gets an unexpected outlet---but the cost turned out to be different than it initially looked, and I guess it can only be done once? I wasn't clear on why that couldn't be repeatable. This is the biggest magic the series has presented so far, and I wanted to see more.Gwen's problems with the visions were well done. She's not sure if she's seeing something that can be changed or not, and she's getting enough of a vision without the context to misinterpret many things. I really liked how Tremelo confronts her at the end with the difference between her and the other Seers.I didn't like how the battle turned out. Viviana built an army of machines and dominated animal wills. It seemed odd that the machines all behaved just like the animals in the end (trying to be vague to avoid spoilers). It was also very odd that Viviana had followers enthusiastic enough to build and fight with her army, but Viviana herself was the only player that needed to be removed to let everything work out.Overall this wasn't a bad finish (except for Viviana), but I finished feeling like I'd rather have had maybe another book so that some of the best parts of this one had room to expand. I rate this book Neutral.See my reviews and more at https://offtheshelfreviews.wordpress....
