The first new additions of 2019.
I finished the r/Fantasy 2017 Bingo challenge! *Throws confetti* I’m really proud of it, and really glad, because I did (most) of my reading based on the squares on the card, and not just on ‘feeling.’ I did read some small things in between the books for bingo, but all of my planned rereads for 2017 (Gemmell, Erikson, Tolkien) had to be postponed.
Take a look at my card below!
It’s been months since I decided to participate in the r/Fantasy Bingo for 2017, and while it won’t finish until the 31st of March 2018, I thought it would be fun to see how many squares I’ve filled so far. Now, keep in mind I just copied and pasted the covers into this genius card format someone on r/Fantasy made for this year, so it looks a little…slapdash. Image editing is so not my jam.
Exile’s Gate is the last book in The Complete Morgaine omnibus by C.J. Cherryh, and contains the last adventure of Morgaine and Vanye.
Morgaine and Vanye have ridden through the Gate on Azeroth, and find themselves on another world, once again surrounded by men and qhal, not knowing who they can trust. While they try to find the next Gate to seal, they find resistance, and help, from the unlikeliest of sources.
Vanye and Morgaine have entered a new world, the world of Azeroth, and it is a beautiful one. One without strife, where man and qhal live together in harmony. But unfortunately, this world is about to change for the worse. For they didn’t come through the gates alone. The people of Shiuan have entered this world, and so has Chya Roh, their most dangerous enemy. They mean to take this world for themselves, and Chya Roh has his forces guard the Gate, and search for the one they all hate: Morgaine.
I bought The Complete Morgaine omnibus by C.J. Cherryh a while ago, and while I would usually just review the entire thing, I figured each of the four books it contained merited a review. So that’s why I’m reviewing all of them separately. Well of Shiuan is the second book in the saga.
Jherun knew her world, Shiuan, was doomed to be overtaken by the dark waters that rose every Hnoth eventually. The Gates of Shiuan were once ruled by kings, but they were long gone, and only their descendants still lived. They still lived, knowing that their world would one day drown. None knew how to use the Gates now, their sole means of escape if ever there was one. None but Morgaine, who’d come to her Shiuan to seal them
I bought The Complete Morgaine omnibus by C.J. Cherryh a while ago, and while I would usually just review the entire thing, I figured each of the four books it contained merited a review. So that’s why I’m reviewing all of them separately. Gate of Ivrel is the first book in the saga.
Nhi Vanye i Chya has been exiled for unintentional brother killing, and must survive his ordeal through outlawry. The clans of Andur-Kursh are all vying for power, but there is none as powerful, and horrible as Thiye Thiye’s-son, master of the Gate. When hunted, hungry and thirsty, Vanye finds himself in the accursed Morgaine’s vale, he is too tired to seek shelter elsewhere. When accidentally stumbling upon a temporal trap, he unintentionally frees a beautiful but otherworldly woman, suspended for a century. It is Morgaine, a legend of the past of whom terrible tales are told; the witch who brought disaster upon Andur-Kursh. She claims from him a year of servitude, to guard her back while she prepares to finish what she started so many years ago.
