    One thought on “Destiny: Child of the Sky”

    1. As much as I loved this trilogy and these characters, I think I am going to stop right here and not continue reading the series. I think Rhapsody and Ashe's story is complete and I would like to keep it that way.I've read some of the reviews of the next books, and I think it's safe to keep this trilogy as a special place in my heart instead of it maybe soiling it the more I read.It finished off perfectly ----- except for Achmed (I really wanted a HEA for him) especially since him and Gunther wer [...]

    2. I could deal with the endless flow of men throwing themselves down at Raps feet because, who wouldn't she so incredibly beautiful! I mean you'd have to be half blind to not notice, considering Haydon throws it in the readers face every other page or so. Raps the whore who somehow gets her virginity back. Now if that isn't the biggest load I've ever read I don't know what is.It wasn't even that.Achmed managed to get me through Rapsody and I actually liked Joe, because as much of a whiney bitch th [...]

    3. I really liked this book, and the way that Haydon wrapped things up. The search for the Rakshas' children was a nice additon, and the end of the F'dor was highly satisfying. Even though I was dismayed at first to see 200 pages left, she did a good job of tying up all the loose ends. I am looking forward to reading the next book.

    4. I was sooo happy when I heard that this wasn't the last book in the series! The romance and struggles that the characters felt I felt along with them too! These characters are so strong and this book brings everything to life because it seems so realistic, just in another world. AMAZING

    5. This book was WAY long, which was why it gets 4 stars (prolly closer to 3.5). I love the main characters, but I really felt like the book dragged on and on and on. So many things happening. And I'm not entirely certain the ending was worth it (the very last chapter). I liked the overall wrap up and will definitely be continuing the series.

    6. So, this is it. The end of Haydon's fabulous trilogy! I know, when asking it isn't shown as a trilogy but rather as six volumes. But nevertheless, the first three novels build a union. Book four and five seem to be closed stories who aren't even half as good as the trilogy and the last book, well that one just seems to be strangely without a real plot. I don't know when or whether I will read anymore books in this series because I'm so very very satisfied with the first three. I'll sort of revi [...]

    7. Armed with the locations of the demon-spawn's children, Rhapsody and Achmed leave the mountain in Grunthor's capable hands. If they can extract the demon's blood from the children, it will be their first solid lead on the F'dor's host. But the F'dor is hardly sitting idle, and it continues to orchestrate the plan that will bring the whole world into ruin. It may simply be a matter of which of them gets there first.All the threads built in Rhapsody and Prophecy tie up here, in the capstone of the [...]

    8. This is the third book in the Symphony of Ages series. You most likely do not want to read this one unless you read Rhapsody and Prophecy first.This was my third re-read of this book. I liked it even better than before. The sarcastic banter among the three main characters is hilarious. And the dragons are wicked awesome, as we used to say in Massachusetts. One sounds like Alan Rickman in my head. One is dead sexy and gets to fool around with our heroine. And onewhom I personally enjoyed the most [...]

    9. Three words:Not as strong.Many years ago I was browsing the fantasy section in Narns & Nobles in Iowa City, when the clerk started chatting with me about books & recommended Rhapsody, the first of this series. That book, I really liked, so I picked up the next two in the series.The second book was a little looser, but still pretty good.This book, less so. It works through the resolution of the conflicts from the first two books. ALL OF THEMThere were enough resolutions to have been resol [...]

    10. Well. It's finally over. I may go into withdrawal from glistening tresses and glittering eyes and bellwether misused three times a chapter, but then again, probably not.And yet I still really liked this book. The politics were good. The Rowans were interesting. I could have done without Constantin and Anwyn, but, you know. You win some, you lose some.I especially adore Achmed and wish he had gotten more of a role. I would love a book about Achmed and Grunthor, with Rhapsody and/or Ashe as side c [...]

    11. First 3/4th better than the too romance-ish last 4th.I've enjoyed discovering this complex world and the different forces at work. Also, the different races (Lirin, Bolg, F'dor, Serandian, Nain, Dhracian) were something new (which was kind of refreshing)I was annoyed (to say the least) with the dazzlingly-dazzling-unselfish-and-strongest-of-all-Rhapsody-whose-hair-we-get-talked-about-every-2-pages-or-so and, by the end of the book, I thought that the story was more a romance with a high fantasy [...]

    12. This was a solid conclusion to a thoroughly enjoyable series and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who enjoys some romance in their fantasy, anyone who likes a solid good vs evil plotline, anyone who enjoys suspense and mystery, and anyone looking for some well done alternatives to traditional fantasy races.

    13. My true rating for this book is 3.5 stars. It was better than the first installment (which I rated a 3) but not as good as the second (which I rated a 4), so this book falls squarely in the middle.I had some difficulty getting into it. The first half largely consisted of the protagonist moping about and feeling sorry for herself, with the recurring Mary Sue-Deus Ex Machine bits that I've come to expect from this series. That behavior doesn't rectify itself until the last tenth of the novel, whic [...]

    14. This is a classically cheesy fantasy series, but one which I still find myself enjoying. I like the world and the magic, and Achmed!

    15. A long and interesting read. This last book in the trilogy focusses more on Rhapsodyand I would have liked to read a bit more about Achmed and Grunthor. But heyyou can't have it all.

    16. This book is the type of book that I love and hate simultaneously. I literally found myself hanging on every word (and they are such magical, illustrious ones)as I slowly turned the pages, fearing that I might miss yet another pithy, entertaining statement from Mr. Conroy. OK, so the only hate aspect of my relationship to this book is the arduous task of noting all I wanted to remember with post-it flags and highlighter marks, not to mention looking up a few words whose meaning I obsessively had [...]

    17. Oh. My. God. I was soooooo ready for this book to be over! I really only read it because I read the previous two and was like "eh I wonder what happens to the characters? Guess I'll invest the time to find out." Bad decision.Rhapsody is such an irritating, shallow, two-dimensional character who the author tries to make appear deep by telling you how wonderful and unselfish and wonderfully naive she is. And wonderful. And amazing. What a total Mary Sue! Achmed and Gunthor were great and kept me r [...]

    18. I remember reading this book when I was on vacation in Germany when I was sixteen. I liked it then.Unfortunately, almost ten years later, I do not like it anymore. It got tossed along with the others into the donate pile; should I ever want to read them again, I can just get them from library.What I still like:-The worldbuilding! Still fantastic.-Achmed! Still snarky and badass.What I like more now:-Oelendra and Anborn. Not sure why. I was ambivalent on them when I was younger, now I think they' [...]

    19. Before I get into what I really hated about this trilogy, I have to give it its due. By the end of the third book, I was completely engrossed in the story. I wanted to find out what happened to the characters, even thought I STILL can't stand how disgustingly perfect Rhapsody is. I will be continuing to read the story -- I can hardly help it now that I've read the end of "Destiny"!Now, the good stuff, being said, this is what I wrote as I was reading the book:I didn't want to say it, but Rhapsod [...]

    20. This is going to be a hard review to write, because I read the first three books in this series 10 years ago and loved them, and I'm re-reading them now to finish the series. I still love them. I got sucked right back into the story of Rhapsody, Achmed, and Gruntord Ashe. Ugh. Ashe. Because I love these books I don't want to say anything bad about them, but this book in particular drove me crazy at times.I spent half my time reading this book (listening to the audiobook, really) rolling my eyes [...]

    21. so i decided that Achmed was worth reading the books for after all. i still found Ashe and Rhapsody's relationship really nauseating (and i LIKE romance novels usually). Rhapsody's complete inability to conceptualize her own beauty was severely downplayed in this book, which was much better. i really loved the development of Achmed's character (and i'm pissed that he didn't wind up with Rhapsody in the end). however, i liked that he was willing to wait, which i had already noticed and was please [...]

    22. At last we learn who the F'Dor host is! I didn't think I could make it.I enjoyed the 'conclusion' to this tale. I love when things get wrapped up nicely, tying all loose ends up Learning who the 'time keeper' was, Rhapsody and Ashe, etc.Rhapsody, however, was still unbelievably insufferable. If she wasn't relate able in the first two books, she definitely wasn't in this one. Loved by all who meet her, How many titles of ruler-ship does she have? And honestly Ashe comes across as so freaking poss [...]

    23. It's an epic fantasy. The plot is fine. Interesting things happen, and the writing is okay. Haydon writes a lot of prose about the history of places and the way things look, which I tended to skim after the first hundred times. My biggest problem with the book is that as the series moved forward, the author's treatment of the main character (Rhapsody) started to grate on my nerves. Everyone in the series begins to worship Rhapsody in some fashion. Rhapsody is written as the most beautiful, the m [...]

    24. I love the world building, Achmed, Grunthor and Anborn. The series also has an epic feel, because the world has such a rich history. I hated the romance between Rhaps and Ashe. So melodramatic and angsty. Ashe was an idiot. Even admits it. And Rhaps could not be anymore of a Mary Sue. I don't mind, to be honest, that she is so beautiful and clueless. I enjoyed it when Achmed used her against Tristan of Roland and how he taunted him with her total cluelessness. What annoyed me about Rhaps was tha [...]

    25. The series overall is quite good. Haydon is a master of using prophecy - it never means what you think it will, but when you learned what happened you kick yourself for not realizing what was coming. The book is well written, and full of suspense, humor and creative ideas. Sadly, it goes about 100 pages too long. The exciting climax happens midway through the book, and then there's about 200 pages of wrap up. There are a lot of plots to wrap up, but it just goes on too long. The epilogue is by f [...]

    26. Thought this was a very nice conclusion to the trilogy; everything was wrapped up nicely. I wish Rhapsody's memories from that one night were restored earlier so there would be more quality Ashe and Rhapsody time (love all their bickering when they're together, it's hilarious!!), but other than that I was very satisfied.I was surprised that there was still quite a bit of story left even after they killed the F'Dor, but I guess it makes sense as there was still all the reunification business to t [...]

    27. Probably the strongest of the three, but that's not saying much. The pacing is better, and the action, such as it is, is fine - the Cymrian moot scene is actually fairly satisfying. The romance is groanworthy at best - Jesus, people, relationships in which you don't talk to each other aren't healthy relationships. The biggest problem remains the disparity between my reaction to Rhapsody and all of the other characters'. I don't actually think "Mary Sue" is the way to describe her - that term has [...]

    28. Lots of action, lots of good sex, lots of really good sex, terrifyingly imaginative characterization of evil, a beautiful (no, stunning, every- eye-on-her-at-all-times) heroine (enough!!!), and one pug-ugly but interesting "good" character whose innate nature should make me dislike him but whose actions and needs are so well drawn that I wish the heroine would just take her eyes off the gorgeous hunk and see him I didn't find the book impossible to put down, but I did like it quite well. Interes [...]
