    One thought on “The Silver Mage”

    1. The fifteenth book in the *very* long-running Deverry series. Here Katharine Kerr seeks to wrap up those last few plot points and bring the sequence to a resounding end.Oh dear. I've followed this series faithfully, to the extent of doing a full re-read in preparation of the release of this final book, and I am more than disappointed with the way Kerr has finished things off.To be honest, this series has been limping along for a while, but every now and again Kerr would produce a book that spark [...]

    2. Kerr's writing is so simple and calm, each time I begin one of her books I wonder why I loved the previous ones so much. And yet by the 3rd page I'm sucked right in, loving it. It's a sign of an excellent writer that even tho it's been more than a year since I read her last one, everything and everyone comes right back to me and it seems I right back in her world and her characters. With this book, her series is finally completed, and oh how nice a conclusion it is. Everything is tied up so sati [...]

    3. I was saddened to end this series and say good-bye to all the characters. I guess I'll just have to wait until they are born "again"

    4. It was good to finally get the end of this series after such a long wait, and a lot of the plot threads wrapped up pretty much how I expected they would. There really weren't many surprises, and it's pretty clear that the author herself just wanted it to be over. This is most evident by the actual ending and "Author's Note" after the epilogue. It was pretty disappointing to have read what, 15 novels of this series to get a one-page afterthought to say basically "Oh yeah, you guys are gonna be ma [...]

    5. I love this series so much, and this final volume was so fitting to end everything on. I didn't realize how much I missed Aderyn and Evandar until the very end.Even though this was the most recently published, I almost felt like I was reading it for the first time. Most of it felt new, and had apparently slipped my mind in favor of the older stories. I don't know why, since it was every bit as good as the first book.New Deverry is in the works, which makes me happy. But I still feel like, when I [...]

    6. It was a thrill to re-read this series, especially when I discovered that I had somehow missed the final book in the series! It's been a great ride, all the way. I found this last installment extremely satisfying & I'm really sad that it's the end. I shall truly miss Deverry.

    7. I realise that I finished this whole series in less than a week (including that three day period where I finished ten books, eight of which were of Deverry). I have no excuses for myself.The book answers a lot of my questions raised in the previous one. Basically, the Western border remains under threat of colonisation/occupation by the horsekin. Cerr Cawnen reappears as a vital site. The horsekin army threatens it. As it is not defensible, it is thereafter (bloodlessly) abandoned by its citizen [...]

    8. In The Silver Mage, the fifteenth book in the very long-running DEVERRY series, Katharine Kerr seeks to wrap up those last few plot points and bring the sequence to a resounding end.Oh dear. I've followed this series faithfully, to the extent of doing a full re-read in preparation of the release of this final book, and I am more than disappointed with the way Kerr has finished things off.This series has been limping along for a while, but every now and again Kerr would produce a book that sparkl [...]

    9. So, we've finally reached the end of the long Deverry saga. It's good to be at the end, but I can't help but feel a little let down at the way it all wrapped up. I think part of the problem is that there are so many characters and incarnations that have been dealt with, that it was hard to really wrap it all up and give everyone a satisfying ending. And the whole question of the changelings, which was so important for most of these books, was barely skimmed over, with only a mention at the end o [...]

    10. I thought this was a proper end to a series I have held dear for so long. Okay there is that part (flashback) about very early incarnations of Jill and Rhodry which I found a bit boring and slow. But after that the story picks up really good (excuse my somewhat clumsy english). No real warscenes - which I apreciate.

    11. At last the story is finished. All the strands wove together beautifully. I miss the world already. I'm so glad the author chose to revisit the start of the series, and to make sure everyone's story was connected and tied together.I'm so happy!

    12. A good book for a weekend of long train journeys. I read the others - all 14 of them - some years ago, and had been planning to read this since about the time it came out in 2008. I bought this copy in 2016 and it sat there. Obviously it was waiting for the right moment! I enjoyed going back to a well-drawn world, although I find (still find, I think) it a bit difficult to hold all the characters and their reincarnations in my head. Nevertheless, this is a fun read, a complex plot deftly told (I [...]

    13. Good ending to the seriesThere will always be questions left at the end of a series. This one is no exception. Go read this series.

    14. It is doneSatisfying end to an amazing world of people, places and stories. Although part of me will always want to know what happens next

    15. On the 13th of July 2015 I discovered a book called Daggerspell in my recommendation list. A book with a pretty cool name, by an author I'd never heard of before. It was book #1, which sounded good to me because I love a good series of books, the bigger the better. Little did I know back then that 15 books was the journey i'd be strapping myself in for.All i can stay is that i'm glad i did.It wasn't until the 22nd of March, roughly 7 months ago, that i began the journey in the Land of Deverry. I [...]

    16. ~Spoilers if you've not read the other books in the series~The battle against the Horsekin has finally reached a head. The fate of the Deverry and the Westfolk hinges on this final battle. Rhodri, if the dweomer is not removed soon is in danger of loosing his human soul forever and will be doomed to live out the rest of his life as a dragon, while Dallandra and the other dweomer masters are also on a mission to find a way to move Haen Marn. Like the novels that preceded this one, there is a lot [...]

    17. I have not felt like this after finishing a series since I finished Harry Potter. I started this series in my freshman year of highschool. The journey was totally fulfilling. Like Harry Potter I began the last book wondering how it could all be tied together. The final journey began with Daggerspell and on this last read I found tge characters as compelling as in my youth. The pain and tragedy at the heart of the story is at its core a tale of redemption. The characters and story of Deverry are [...]

    18. Nach 16 Jahren kommt eine grandiose Reise zu ihrem Ende. Mit "Silver Mage" beschließt Katharine Kerr nach 15 Büchern ihren Deverry Zyklus. Nicht viele Autoren schaffen es, ein so gleichmäßig hohes und spannendes Niveau über eine solch lange Zeit und so viel Seiten beizubehalten, doch meiner Meinung nach gelingt dies Katharine Kerr fast ohne Ausnahme.Einer der Gründe dafür ist ganz sicher die Konzeption der Geschichte: Die Protagonisten werden über viele Jahrhunderte hinweg immer wieder r [...]

    19. Katherine Kerr's The Silver Mage is the final book in her over two-decade-spanning series, Novels of Deverry. Since I followed the series as it came out and there are 15 novels with hundreds of characters taking place over the course of over a thousand in-universe years, I can't actually remember enough to say if everything is wrapped up, but I think it comes close. What it doesn't do is satisfactorily wrap up things it introduced over the course of the last few novels! The worst example of this [...]

    20. Series ReviewIt's been a long time since I started this series years ago. I have to say, this last group of books was quite the let down. Maybe it's because I built it up in my mind, but I felt very, cheated, maybe? The end-but-not-really-so-yay-we-accomplished-nothing of the Alshandra cult, the dropped plot lines (seriously, what happened with that astral funnel? Did I gloss over it in my boredom?), the random jump to the dawntimes which took way too much time and didn't really tell us much, et [...]

    21. Not a bad ending to the series, though not a great one either. First and foremost, I still don't see why Kerr felt the need to introduce an entire new race out of the blue; everything that they were involved with could have been easily handled through previously established plot lines and characters. It's also clear that Kerr was running out of steam while she was writing this last installment, as most of the dialogue is repetitive and predictable and many of the characters lose their distinctiv [...]

    22. It has been 16 years since I first picked up the first Deverry novel, DaggerSpell, and here in am, 16 years later, about to finish the fifteenth and final one.Has the journey been worth it? Yes. Was the wait too long? Yes.I would not recommend anyone starts reading the Deverry cycle unless they intend to read them all, as the macroscopic story is at least as important as the microscopic ones, and as such I am reviewing the books as a set.I almost give them 4 stars (excellent) but in the end I am [...]

    23. This was hard to let go, this series I've been reading for over 10 years. I don't want to say I was disappointed, but I feel like my favorite characters didn't get the attention I had wanted them to in these final 4 books. In addition, Ms. Kerr introduced so many new characters and mysteries during this final series; I don't think she answered enough questions and had enough closure. She summed up a few people's lives, but for a complete ending to a series of 15 books?? Too many holes I think an [...]

    24. The final book in a very long series. It had a lot to live up to. While this book does tie up more loose ends then the average series finale, I'm still troubled by a couple of things I don't think were explained. So, I guess if you like some mystery left after a series finale, then this might be an incredible book.Overall not a lot really happened. There was one interesting flashback in the book. But it was this flashback that I think caused me to have more questions then if it had never been sh [...]

    25. I started with Daggerspell from my local library in 1989 and have kept up with it ever since.I found that those who enjoy the series did so because they were able to navigate the language, geography, history and the reincarnation twists and turns of the characters' life stories. To those I say congratulations for letting your imagination take off and play out such a wonderful piece of work from K. Kerr. I am sad to see the characters go. And so, I can hope that mayhap Ms. Kerr will either pick u [...]

    26. Enjoyable finish to the series, satisfying with all the ends wrapped up nicely and positively. I didn't love the flashback to characters I didn't know, this being the last book of a series I thought I'd wrapped my mind around, and still prefer to have the timeline straight, but maybe some people like the jumping around, makes it more interesting for them, so those types of readers will love this style. I did like her characters enough to consider reading more of her novels, and dragons are alway [...]

    27. A good enough read though a disappointing ending to what had been a truly incredible series - very reminiscent of the final Harry Potter offering; a drawn out build up followed by a big to-do which is over and done with in the blink of an eyed all finished off with an incipid anticlimax of an ending to quickly wrap it all up with a tidy bow. The whole book felt like it was rush-written, without heart, and was not what I was expecting after years of following the series and the long waits for the [...]

    28. A grand conclusion to the Dragon Mage series. Lives past, present and of the future all interwoven throughout the entire series finally come together to reveal the destiny of the races. I for one would love to see another story by Katharine Kerr and to see what the world might look like now that the circle has been broken. I loved every moment of this story as it unfolded from start to end. A mighty finish with just enough left unsaid to rekindle our imaginations as to what might come next! :-)

    29. I have read the 15-book series over the past 10 years and while the ending book wasn't necessarily "conclusive" I didn't expect it to be. It's the kind of storyline that could just continue on and on andn on. However, the way in which it "ended" did provide enough satisfying closure. It was a fantastic series, and I look forward to re-reading it as I'm sure there are many parts of the overall story I have forgotten and will enjoy all over again.
