    One thought on “The Fire Dragon”

    1. This 11th book in the Deverry Cycle concludes The Dragon Mage trilogy Act III of the four acts that make up the entire cycle As such, it serves well to wrap up some major plot lines as well as certain primary characters personal stories We spend about half of our time in the past, finishing up the story line concerning young Lillorigga, princess Bellyra, the bard Maddyn, Prince Maryn and Nevin, the dweomer master that lives through many lifetimes The second half of the book shifts the plot forwa [...]

    2. This book just became my favorite so far of the series I m serious folks For a long time I ve had an idolized vision of Prince Maryn, completely forgetting all the crappy things he did I realized that while he was the right king at the right time, he was a pretty crappy human being, at least to his women I ve loved Bellyra and Lillorigga fiercly, but never as much as this time through, and with clarity on their situations than I had before And while I mourned over the losses of Jill and Nevyn i [...]

    3. The third book in the Dragon Mage sequence In this book we spend about half of our time in the past, concluding the storyline concerning Lillorigga, princess Bellyra, Maddyn the bard and the prince Maryn The second half of the book shifts the plot forwards concerning Rhodry, Dallandra, Niffa, Raena and the dragon Arzosah.In my opinion this is by far the best book written by Katharine Kerr in the whole Deverry series I was gripped throughout Of necessity considering the curse of the dweomer table [...]

    4. 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 not [...]

    5. The author spends about a third of this book in what we have came to think of as the past the end of the Civil Wars and the other two thirds in the present with Dallandra, Rhodry, Jahdo, Niffa, Evandar, Raena, and Arzosah Several long running plot threads come together, a fitting end to this arc in the Deverry Cycle One 4 book arc remains to follow Rhodry to his Wyrd and discover how the Westfolk fare after momentous discoveries rock their world.Kerr is not afraid to write bittersweet episodes, [...]

    6. This review may contain spoilers.It s been quite a while since I returned to the world of Deverry, but when I started reading this book, it was really nice to return to a world I had spent a lot of time in when I was much younger.I really liked being able to see the contrast between the past and the present I couldn t help but feel a lot of sympathy for some of the characters, especially at the beginning The cycle of rebirth was really interesting to read about and I especially felt that this bo [...]

    7. We see how Raena Merodda and Niffa Lilli s histories intersect Lilli s, Maryn s, and Bellyra s deaths were awful The ending of that narrative was a tragedy I m not yet sure how their timelines work out Lilli doesn t meet Maryn again in present day, and the present day Bellyra Maryn worked out well enough they did their duty It s nice to see that present day Bellyra Carra retains so much of her personality love for history.I realise that there are so many synonyms for laughing in battle which alm [...]

    8. Just fantastic This book kept me hungry all the way to the endd what an ending Now, just the four books of the last act The Silver Wyrm While I can t wait to read them, I hate that I m so close to the end of the series.

    9. Honestly, I couldn t really be bothered with what happened to whom any.As the cycle goes on and on, I barely got attached to any character in particular also because they tend to die quite easily and even so they are not really gone anyway not really a spoiler at this point any I also didn t get why the evil characters where allowed to live on for so long When you re a notorious poisoning manipulating witch in a medieval setting, that s usually a straight ticket to death by beheading, by burning [...]

    10. A decent conclusion to scene 3 , leaving several plot threads unresolved and paving the way for scene 4 While I do like the whole long term story thing, it was a little irritating when I first read the series, since I had to stop at this point and wait for 9 years until the final scene was completed Anyway, now I can finally move on to the stuff I haven t read yet.Something that has struck me so far about this series is Kerr s thoughtful and restrained use of extremely powerful magic Having worl [...]

    11. I have read the first 3 books of the series called Dragon Mage The red Wyvern, the Black Raven and the Fire Dragon Although I was not familiar with the Deverry world and the style is pretty convoluted, I ended up liking the story souls are reincarnated until they fulfill their fate called wyrd There are several races in the world, and some chosen people posses magic called dweomer which some use for good, some use for bad These wizards are usually long lived and they live among ordinary people, [...]

    12. For a long time this felt like another Time of Omens which was good but mostly a set up for what would come next Partly that was because the first part of the book was trying up a storyline I d lost my fascination with I never liked Lilli for some reason and I ve been coming to dislike Maryn as intended I suspect While a reasonable representation of post natal depression is welcome in literature it s not exactly uplifting to read which contributed to the feeling that this book would be on a down [...]

    13. In The Fire Dragon we spend about half of our time in the past, concluding the storyline concerning Lillorigga, princess Bellyra, Maddyn the bard, and the prince Maryn The second half of the book shifts the plot forwards concerning Rhodry, Dallandra, Niffa, Raena, and the dragon Arzosah.In my opinion The Fire Dragon is by far the best book in the whole DEVERRY series I was gripped throughout Of necessity considering the curse of the dweomer tablet , the first half of the story was bleak and hear [...]

    14. The Fire Dragon ends the Dragon Mage cycle, and you can feel that there will be only one cycle to definitively end the series.Plotlines are resolved, characters settle the score, and you have the impression that the circle is complete Obviously, this requires a grand ending and Fire Dragon really has that The end will sweep you off your feet and leave you teary eyed It constitutes one of the highest points in the series

    15. 40% of the book was really good and this was the best of the three Dragon Mage books However it is beyond me why the author did not write one excellent book about Lilli instead of writing these jumbling monsters The Lilli story line evoked by far the most emotional response and had characters you cared about regardless of their humanity, i.e faults we all have.

    16. I had an unbelievably hard time getting through the first part of this book because I was so tired of the Lilli Maryn Bellyra Maddyn am I the only person who kept mixing up Maryn and Maddyn because their names were so similar, btw love mess I liked the second part of the book better, especially with the additional depth that Raena and Verrarc were given, but I still thought it dragged a bit.

    17. well, the wrap up of the sub story was satisfying than the previous two, and i get why the storyline needs to explain characters deaths, but it seemed abrupt and tragic rather than a hopeful bridge to the next character anyway i m still interested enough in this world she s constructed to read the last act for the overall series.

    18. This feels like the final book in the series Lots of storylines are completed For example, Raena, Rhodry, Salamandar, Evander, Jahdo, and the story behind the elves is explained It is a really good book, but you won t enjoy it that much if you haven t read the others in the series A great read.

    19. This installment was great There were two main story lines, both continuations from the previous two books The older time wise story line was good The newer was great The end had me extremely excited to continue reading the next book Outstanding.

    20. This was an entertaining, satisfying conclusion to the Dragon Mage trilogy in the Deverry series.

    21. There are some loose ends hanging at the end of this book Maybe there will be books to explain Still a great series.

    22. Definitely a great read, brings to a close a few people s storylines, and starts a couple Great if you are a fan of the rest of the series.

    23. I think this is my favourite book of the whole series The whole story of Maryn, Maddyn, Bellyra is completed the seeds of the future storyline firmly sown.

    24. In these last stages of the Deverry Series, I could and will never give any less than 5 out of 5 stars for these brilliantly amazing books.

    25. I m glad I took a break from these books After Jill s death I got a little frustrated with them But now I am back and I love them again.
