    1 thought on “Mind of the Magic”

    1. This third and final book in the Arhel series was another fun and quick read, although there were things I both liked and disliked about it. One of the things I liked was that it took the one thread I hadn’t thought was wrapped up well in the previous book and spun an entire story about it. We learn a lot more about Arhel, the part of the fictional world these books are set in, and how it came to be the way it is. I also liked that there was humor in the book. Nothing uproarious, but there wer [...]

    2. Each of the books in Holly Lisle's Arhel Trilogy offers a self-contained adventure, so the books could, in a pinch, be read as stand-alones. But now that I've read the third and (I think) final volume, I can appreciate the ongoing character arc of Faia Rissedotte, her journey from unlearned, rebellious teenager in the first book, to loyal friend and courageous, loving mother in the second book (where she plays an important secondary role), to world savior and challenger to the gods in the third. [...]

    3. This little number was an impulse garage sale buy. Noteworthy because a serious douche bag ran off with a whole tote full of books I wanted to buy right beside me. He announced he wanted his son to read and ran off to the garage sale cashier. This book he missed in another tote next to it. Some people can be so rude. Anyhow this book was pure delight. Well-written, thoughtful, fun, and even a healthy dose of romance. A good find for a fantasy reader.

    4. It may be kind of unfair to read the third book in a series and review it when you haven't read the rest of the author's work. And I think I may have started this book several times and not been able to hang in for the ending which was new to me. The plot line is good- a guilty young mage with a child picks up an unwanted houseguest just as her country is experiencing a destabilization of magic. It turns out to be a trickster god who wants her to return to the Ancient Ones ruins and release a ce [...]

    5. This third and final book in the Arhel series was another quick read, although although it seemed like a step down from the previous Fire in the Mist(FitM) and Bones of the Past(BotP).One of the things I liked was that it expanded upon the world built in the previous book, which I felt was not wrapped up well in BotP. We learn a lot more about Arhel, the part of the fictional world these books are set in, and how it came to be the way it is. The subtle humor was another welcome presence througho [...]

    6. Somehow, I have trouble getting into Holly Lisle's writing. It always strikes me as something I would have been really glad to read back when finding a new Andre Norton was an amazing discovery, that seems rather contrived to me now. But the plot here is pretty original: magic in this world may or may not be directly connected with the Dreaming God/E. Delmuirie, trapped in some sort of spell for all of human history. Attempts have been made to awaken Delmuirie before. But Faia is about to get dr [...]

    7. This was a fantastic finish to the trilogy. It made the previous two books appear to have been almost an extravagant world building exercise in preparation fr telling us this last adventure. All the threads of adventures, cultures, histories and everything we had learnt came together so that this book could be all action, adventure and storytelling of great skill.It was great to see characters such as Faia and Medwind return again, as well as to see that all of their previous magic has a price a [...]

    8. I happened across the book while I was cleaning my room. I figured I'd remember more of the book as I read. I was kinda right. I remembered enough to keep track of the characters but not enough to spoil the story.I like Holly Lisle's heroines. They get hurt. They black out. They aren't superheroic nor superobnoxious. I particularly like Medwind who is a randy, polyandrous scholar. I don't think I've ever run into a character like her before Ms. Lisle's books.Like many adventure stories, the plot [...]

    9. A good wrap up to the trilogy. Faia inadvertently removes all the magic from Arhel. This is about how it happened, and who Delmuirie and the First Folk really are. I enjoyed it, It was a fast paced and fun read.

    10. This final book in this series is not one I remember at all. I remember wanting to read this book and after I did, it left me a little bemused. The story finished and all the threads tied up, it just didn't move me.

    11. Great book! The characters breathed, lived! The problems felt real, the romance warmed my heart while the tragedies ripped at my soul. Great read!

    12. Not bad. Had a struggle getting through it the first time for some reason, but this re-read was much better. Maybe even a four.

    13. I didn't like this book. It didn't have the pizzaz that Lisle's books normally do. I don't think it was as well written as her other books, even the ones in this series.
