    One thought on “Elegy for a Lost Star”

    1. This fifth book in Elizabeth Haydon's Symphony of Ages series is a darned good read, but our heroine Rhapsody is starting to have a few Really Bad Days, and I mean Bad on the scale of Agent Jack Bauer from 24. While I adore Rhapsody, I was slightly annoyed that, more than in the previous volumes, she needed her (male) friends to save her pretty pregnant butt. We'll cut her some slack, though. Not only is she dealing with the worst case of morning sickness ever recorded, but she has pissed off a [...]

    2. All you people thought I had stopped reading trashy fantasy novels because my last few posts were about novels that mature well-read, literary folk read. Ha, Fooled you!Er anyway, the continuing story of Rhapsody and her allies as they attempt to stop the destruction of the world by yet another insanely powerful magical nemesis. Those nemesi just keep popping up, don't they?Rhapsody was considerably less whiny in this book, which was a definite plus. Grunthor was for the most part missing, which [...]

    3. I don't have a pleasant review for this one. There's a reason that I never finished it the first time I tried reading it, way way back in 2008, besides the fact that I knew book 7 didn't have a release date (and wouldn't until 2014).I know part of my displeasure with this book was the audiobook narrator, who just really needs to calm down and stop putting too much emphasis on all of his words. It creates this weird feeling of anticipation or building up without conclusion, like a series of indep [...]

    4. (Only read 2/3 of the book.) The book jumps from different POVs randomly without any unifying content, with a great deal of time spent on the back story instead of what was currently happening. Also, the book is giving previous side characters a main role, seemly without reason. A lot of the side/main characters pov could be cut down and add more meat to the main plot of the book. After reading 2/3 of the book, I still do not know what the main storyline is supposed to be about. I think the auth [...]

    5. This is the 5th in the Rhapsody series.In this book we learn that when Emily and Sam had their first "encounter" she became pregnant. But because Sam/Ashe is a Dragon/Human the pregancy was put into a type of hybernation. So, until she and Ashe finally married and became a "spiritual union" the embryo inside her could not develop. So Now she's full on pregnant, and apparently it is a very, very long gestation, and since I've never been pregnant it is difficult for me to relate fully, but OMGOSH! [...]

    6. I thoroughly enjoy this series. The first book was a little confusing but finally this fifth book answers the mystery that started it all. There are not as many characters as I am use to in a prolonged fantasy series but in this case it is a good thing because you become very attached. If you can bear not getting all the answers until late in the series than I highly recommend Elizabeth Haydon’s books.

    7. The series should have ended after Prophesy. It's almost like Elizabeth Haydon began fan-ficing her own work. Characters do unlikely things, develop new talents, and in general, it's sort of become, "Throw magic at it and make it all better," sort of writing.

    8. Once again, there was still something missing. Seriously, I felt like I was just hearing about the characters instead of being right there with them, like how the first three books made me feel. Another thing that bothers me, is that they don't have anymore deep, romantic parts. I thought this book was considered romance?

    9. 4.5 The thing that bugged me was how many sub-plots there were. It was hard to keep track of and some of the plots had nothing to do with the main plot. I'm sure they will come into play in The Assassin King, but it left a lot of name bobbling around in my head after their story was dropped. Some reappeared neared the end and I almost forgot who they were and why they were important. Now onto the many strong points of this novel. It's consistent with the rest of the series in lore and world buil [...]

    10. When the mountain peak exploded, it shook up more than boulders. Anwyn, confused but awake, is desperate to remember who she is, and who it is that makes her blood boil for revenge. Talquist slowly consolidates his hold on Sorbold; Faron somehow survives the wreck of Michael's ship, though possibly to a worse end. As danger mounts from every side, the Cymrian alliance is preparing for a renewal of peace; Rhapsody and Ashe continue preparations for the birth of their child. War is coming---the on [...]

    11. Look, I don't like these books, ok? I reread them because they'd been taking up space on my shelves for a literal decade and a half, but I don't like them, and they get worse after the first trilogy, not better as I was hoping. (To be fair, the *prose* gets a whole lot better - Haydon definitely improved her craft over time. But the characters, the pacing, and the story actually get *less* compelling.)This volume is almost 100% filler and villain-building, because after the first trilogy, there' [...]

    12. This volume picked up significantly from the last. I found a lot more of the magic and worldbuilding that I enjoyed in the first series here, and some of the character development comes back around. In some of the weirder plotting I've seen from a fantasy novel, this book sort of does away with a number of premises and characters from the previous volume. Not that they're missed, but it's strange, if weirdly believable. The things that are retained are, at least, the more interesting ones, and t [...]

    13. I couldn't get past the first few chapters as the story jumps around to different points of view without establishing any character development or even a main plot. This is further confused by flashbacks to previous events that work to obscure the story rather than bring any sort of clarification. Admittedly I have not read any other book in the series but I know of several books I could jump right into the middle of and still get an idea of who the characters are and what they hope to accomplis [...]

    14. This second book of the second trilogy was ok. I read it much faster than the first book, as there was a lot more action. Now I know that I am reading fiction and that certain things need to happen to keep the story going, but I found the end with Faron and Talquist just a little too simplistic I mean, why have Faron rampaging at all? Couldn't the two of them just have bonded upon his creation? I guess he had to get that last scale back and get all of his evil thoughts together before mutely joi [...]

    15. I was pretty excited that there were more books after the original three, I didn't enjoy them quite as much, but they were still fun to read.

    16. I am still completely in love with this series. This particular book had a few slow parts that were repetitive of the previous books, but still well worth the read! Looking forward to the next one. (sorry had phone issues and forgot to do my book updates. I'm guessing on date completed. It did take me longer than usual to finish but not because the book was bad. just have been in a reading funk lately )

    17. I originally read this in 2005, I think. So last year I decided to re-read the whole series again since the author released more books in this series. I enjoyed this all over again. Here's one of my favorite moments: "Grunthor lifted a glass and toasted the Archons. "Well, Oi've always told you lads to use what ya got, and use what ya know. Oi guess this proves ya all know hrekin."I just love Grunthor. He has a way with words.

    18. Again, the end chapters in this book I think were maybe the best, simply because there was so much going on, so many of the characters had their own trials and tribulations to deal with apart from each other, you were dying to see what happened to them. Friendships and loyalties are tested, new beginnings come about and even a bittersweet ending. Though it ended on a bit of a humorous note, the story was built up to be ready to spill over into the final book, which I have just started.

    19. This is as far as I got with this series and the reason I kept with it so long was mostly due to Achmed because up until the time I read these, I hadn't really read a ton of other fantasy and realized that there is much better on offering. The series is a decent read if you aren't picky about unrealistically beautiful people trying to save the world.

    20. A very disjointed read. It wasn't until almost 3/4 of the way thru it that I actually became interested in the characters and what was happening with or to them. The ending was unsatisfying in that it just set up the next installment of the series.This book might have been more enjoyable if I had read the preceding one. I won't be looking for it or the sequel though

    21. Eating these upKinda wish that the ratings system went to 10 stars though I'm not at all saying this would get less than 10. It just feels like I am giving constant perfect ratings which I guess I am. Really like this author and series. Could be because I am so entrenched in this world, but whatever; awesome read

    22. I've read a lot of reviews on this book and there is a lot of complaints about repetition and reminders from the other books (1-4) of the series. I agree she repeats a lot. When reading in order straight through it is annoying but not overly so.This was not the best of the series so far, but a lot of build up for future books that promises good plots.

    23. It was interesting but way too long. The plot was centered around Rhapsody's pregnancy, which isn't interesting enough to carry a book. Basically this one was setting up the next book, which should be better.

    24. Out of Haydon's Symphony of Ages series, this one was the weakest. I love her world and I love her characters (which is why I will continue to read her works) but I felt that this one was even more soap opera-y than the others.

    25. Haydon is a big fan of bringing enemies back from the dead -- you thought he was vanquished forever, but NO! -- and this book reaches the farthest. A little hokey? Yes. But an entertaining read, nonetheless.

    26. As always, I love how Haydon writes. I cannot wait to see what happens at the end of the book. Already have the next two waiting on the shelf at work.

    27. I really wanted to like this book as much as I love the first trilogy, but I wish Haydon hadn't continued this series.These novels didn't have the same feel and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much.
