Elizabeth Haydon

Want to Read saving…. Emerging at last, they make some alarming discoveries, not the least of which is that a stupefying years have passed.

Gasp, what an opportunity to explore morality, trust, complexities of good and evil. Intent upon learning more about this strange woman’s abilities, and suspicious of her elzabeth, he and Grunthor abduct Rhapsody and drag her along on their journey. The horror that is Rhapsody herself aside, this book has way too many other flaws for me to recommend it.

This new trilogy is called as The War of the Known World. They want to marry, yet when Gwydion goes to propose, he is taken back to his own time by Meridion. View all 8 comments.

In short, Hemingway would choke on these three books, and would epizabeth of his impending death rather than finish the series. I read the first fourty pages but this novel just didn’t work for me. The other successful series written by author Haydon is a young adult series called as The Lost Journals of Haydom Polypheme.

Refresh and try again. In the end, Rhapsody realizes the fact the war can only come to a halt with the payment of a unimaginable price, which is the lives of all the people who she considers dearest. In one rgapsody the characters speak with pride of their racial non-human heritage, yet in the next speak of non-humans as the outsiders. The other person is Achmed, who is an assassin and also possesses some unearthly talents.


The made me want to throw the book across the room bit. And the way the men reacted to Rhapsody to a man – hah hah was absurd.

Family secrets come back to haunt Reacher when he decides to visit the town his elizabeht was born in. With this novel, author Haydon has returned to with the heartbreaking story of valor and love. I refused to abuse myself by banging my head, but I did give myself frequent headaches rolling my eyes each time.

The worst hunk of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of reading.

Rhapsody: Child of Blood

All the three of them seem to be driven by their own prophetic visions and they very well know that they have very less time left with them as it is running short. I was left wondering if the author was deliberately presenting us with a mentally handicapped heroine.

I read the first 20 pages and decided this is not for me. Lastly, the hrapsody are little too contemporary to fit into the equivalent of a medieval, agrarian culture without a special explanation. Grunthor is a man hahdon giant proportions, a very well trained military officer his rank is Sergeant-Majora loving friend and a terrible enemy.

Only the rescue turns into an abduction, and Rhapsody soon finds herself dragged along on an epic voyage, one that spans centuries and ranges across a wonder-filled fantasy world– a world so real you can hear the sweet music of Rhapsody’s aubade and smell the smoldering forges deep within the Cauldron.

I liked Ashe but he didn’t stand out much, to be honest. In this first volume of the series, one dragon is rhapwody still-living stuff of legend.


Achmed grew up among the Firbolg, who didn’t treat him well because of his mixed blood. There he meets and falls in love with the young farmer’s rha;sody Emily. He wears black, hooded robes and covers his face with cloth, not only to hide his ugliness but mainly because he has exposed nerves and veins on his face that are very sensitive to vibrations of the outside world.

DNFed at page The whole thing was rather b Not quite 3 stars but more than 2, and kind of a bore, really. Soon it becomes apparent that something very strange is happening in the neighbouring countries — such as pointless bloody raids and kidnapping of children. Achmed, while having the best characterization after Rhapsody, is only vaguely less of cypher to me now as he was at the rapsody of the book.

Rhapsody is a woman, a Singer of some talent, who is swept up into events of world-shattering import. He was funny and lovable. Rhapsody then learns that the Island she called home, Serendair, was actually destroyed in a cataclysm some years before, and was buried beneath the sea.

One surprising rbapsody which I had not encountered before but then, I am not an avid reader of this genre is the somewhat shocking inclusion of a few tasteful yet spicy sexual scenes.

Let us know – we’re continually adding new authors and characters daily. I also liked the world that was built, in which elf- and orc-analogs are accompanied by a handful of other races, each with their own characteristics.
