Ugh... Where to begin...
If you’ve read my reviews thus far, you’ll know Jorg is by far one of the most complicated characters I’ve ever read; a character that can pull just about every emotion from me. I think this book gave us the most insight into Jorg’s growth, and it shows us even more reasons why he ended up the way he did. It was heart breaking to read about, and after the scene in the abby, I had to put it down and take a moment to collect myself. Lawrence’s ability to convey Jorg’s feelings so simply has more impact than I could ever convey.
I have one complaint, and it’s minimal. This book felt a tinsy bit more descriptive than the other books. Or maybe I was just impatient to know what happened. I especially noticed this when they arrived at the emperor’s palace. Again, for those of you who haven’t read my other reviews, I’m not a fan of description so it’s very easy for my mind to wander during those sections.
My only disappointment came from Miana. I’d hoped to get to know her better, but both Katherine and Miana took a back seat in this book, whereas in book 2 they felt more important. I think Jorg stole the show, and since I’ve grown so attached to him, I ended up being fine with this while reading, but upon reflection I would have liked more time with the girls.
The world turned out to be extremely interesting, in my opinion. Things just seemed to start clicking into place as I read. I learned new stuff, got a few answers, and ended up with new questions that were never answered. Fine by me. I like a bit of mystery, and this book let the mind speculate. For a reader who becomes bored with a lot of world building, I must say I finally found a book that actually made me curious about the world. I didn’t just enjoy it. I didn’t just settle into it. I thought about. I listened and wanted to learn. That’s a huge accomplishment on Lawrence’s part.
I became a bit bored during the sections with Chella, but that’s because I had grown so fond of Jorg’s PoV that I wanted to be there all the time. There’s nothing to fault in it, and it was important.
Once again I found Lawrence’s writing to be stunning, and I think each book jumped to a new level, pulling me under and never letting me go. It’s a damn hard book to put down. It makes one think. It makes one feel. And, for me, it made me cry. It came down to how brilliantly Lawrence weaved a sentence and how engaging his characters were, even if they weren’t the saints we’re used to reading about.
Overall, I’d recommend this book to everyone I know, but sadly, I don’t think everyone would look at it the way it was meant to be seen. I know my mother wouldn’t. But my sister would. So I’ll talk it up to those I think would love it, and will think about it for years to come. It definitely gets under ones skin.
I also wasn't a fan of the Builder stuff. A fun idea, but it didn't work for me. The selection of Emperor was amazing and one of the best parts of the trilogy. Then the hokey reveal of the Dead King's identity ruined all those gains. I guess the series went from "stupendous," to "pretty good," to "meh." I would have preferred the reverse.
King Jorg continues on his quest to be Emperor. He takes down his enemies and anyone in his way. Yet, he's grown and matured. His past continues to haunt him and he finally is able to confront his truth. The truth is no matter how many successes he achieves, his conscience will never clear until he's able to redeem his failure to save his little brother. This fact isn't immediately apparent to King Jorg but he comes to this conclusion late in the book.
The Dead King remains in pursuit of the realm and King Jorg must stop the rising dead. He eventually learns what he must do to win, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice and forfeiting what's dear to him.
In the end, King Jorg becomes an honorable man. He shows us that no matter how far one goes in life, the scars that tend to bind our hearts are the ones received in early years. King Jorg can rule the world but until he redeems himself for his choices, where he feels he chose a cowardice's path, he will never find inner peace. So he makes a final decision, for the life of his son, his friends, his kingdom and for the ghosts of his past.
We see a boy go from being a tyrant, to an infallible ruler who despite his arbitrary and difficult nature, was really a brave, good man plagued with torment. He does find peace.
Excellent story of a boy's rise to power and what he does with it in the end. Bravo!
