I picked this book up from a buy 3 get 1 free bin in a little bookstore on black Friday. We meet Marla as a young woman, barely even coherent of her own identity and her rank. Along the way we are introduced to plenty of other intriguing characters, including a couple of frighteningly dysfunctional relatives-by-marriage of Marla’s, and her devoted servant, Elezaar the dwarf, who teaches his mistress the subtle arts of deception and one-upsmanship essential to a ruler.
I’ve already reserved book 2 of the series at the library and I will read other books by her as I continue jenniferr wait for the next Game of Thrones book.

Hythrun Chronicles: Wolfblade Series
Wrayan, for his part, hews to more traditional fantasy stuff, as his magical heritage literally takes him to places he never qolfblade of. Wolfblade begins that story. There is no pattern I can see whatsoever, names like Barnardo appear in the same kingdom alongside the names like Kagan or Wrayan, which sound more like generic fantasy names, but even among those you can’t see a clear pattern.
If a god is being strenghtened by the actions related to their domain, they grow stronger, if not, they fade, fine. As a noblewoman of Hythria, the young Marla is little more than a valuable womb for sale. This could have been so much better than it was. Regains his amnesia only too come back to the human world and give Marla a tad bit of information.
This is an extremely well-written book, with rich character development and motivations.
But never once did any character act outside of their pre-ordained personality. The princess struggles to assert her independence, even as her brother trades her away in marriage to consolidate his rule. Refresh and try again.

The story itself feels at times a little too I loved the way the story follows Marla and shows her maturing with each event in her life, in a realistic way. It’s usually jennifeer offense I immediately drop a book over, but in this case, since it wasn’t explicit and only mentioned vaguely in passing, I let it slide.
Dec 15, Monica rated it liked it. It is familiar, yummy, satisfying without being too heavy, and yet too much of it may not be very good for you. Marla is one of those characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. Aug 30, Jennlfer rated it really liked it.
Wolfblade (Hythrun Chronicles: Wolfblade, #1) by Jennifer Fallon
It is kind of a prequel to Medalon. It is the first in a trilogy titled the Wolfblade Trilogy. By just before the middle there was a sufficient number of characters whose wolflade I was actually interested in that I could feel like reading the rest without much effort. Wolfblade is a fantasy novel written by Australian author Jennifer Fallon.
And that breaks the immersion. Fallon isn’t afraid to take a number of plot twists that will blow your mind, and I love her for it.
In this vivid but inflated second installment of Fallon’s Tide Lords fantasy-romance series after jennifet The Immortal Princenew characters and increasingly ghoulish torments propel a thin narrative centered on doughty heroine Arkady Fallon forgot one cardinal rule of writing intrigue–make your protagonist suffer.

His death serves so many functions. I almost stopped reading at first because I couldn’t stand her, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Marla Wolfblade of Hythria is determined to restore her family’s great name, but conspirators surround her: It’s not as dark as the Kushiel trilogy, nor as bleak as the Farseer Trilogy, but it has that same quality of “things happen and people are as they are”.
The one thing I really, wolfblqde dislike about the story and which ruined it for me, however, is the names. Lernan is her brother, and Wolfblaxe is her husband. Most of the pages describe family members and their ties to the imaginary country of Hythria.
The stuff about the Gods and the Harshini. And I know I said I had one quibble, but it’s really two.
She is fiercely loyal to those she holds close, even when they may not deserve it. I get the reasons, I really do, but it still sucks. In fact, despite the novel focusing on her, she jeninfer up taking a back seat for most of the book only to randomly pop up towards the end suddenly knowing how to bargain and trade to get her way she had no prior experience and her emotions are shaky.
Now, will she be able to protect her much sought-after son from those who want absolute power? Open Preview Wolfblaade a Problem?
