Morgan Howell ¾ 3 free read

BLOOD WILL TELL   Seventeen years have passed since Yim an ex slave blessed by the benevolent goddess Karm sacrificed her body and perhaps her very soul to Lord Bahl avatar of the evil Devourer In that selfless act Yim stripped Lord Bahl of his power but became pregnant with his son Now that so The Iron Palace doesn t read exactly as advertised Yim and Honus are apart for the vast majority of the story traveling alone on their own separate uests Yim wasn t uite as strong as I remembered from the first two books but that could be because she s spent years hiding attempting to be as dull as possible Honus is interesting to return to as he s become bitter and hateful toward the goddess Karm He turns around uickly though and a retired Sarf tells him of the story of the runes on his back His return to the faith and his true path is a little too easy for a guy whose heart was broken for almost two decades but hey I m not one to crush his hopesThe strongest aspect of The Iron Palace was the son Froan s characterization The reader knows that Froan literally has the spirit of evil living inside his body because of his lineage Yim has raised him away from blood and violence of absolutely every kind even going so far as to have her neighbor s husband butcher their goats Yet Froan can t escape the spirit within him He s manipulative even before he becomes violent and once he leaves home and he s no longer under Yim s thumb the violence in his nature comes out Yet his villainy isn t pure black and white There are brief moments of conscience when he remember his mother and then the evil spirit overwhelms them and twists his mind into thinking that his mother is at fault He even falls in love his gentle and caring nature to his lover standing in stark opposition to the bloodshed and terror he spreads as he and his growing army ravage the countrysideSpoiler regarding the ending view spoilerI wasn t a fan of the end specifically the HEA that Froan got I mean hello he was the embodimentvessel for pure evil I m pretty sure he s not going to be free to walk around the countryside and trade at the market and face every day knowing he was responsible for the slaughter of so many innocents He gets to settle down happily but Yim and Honus have to be sad and apart because Yim dies Boo Double boo Triple boo hide spoiler

The Iron Palace Shadowed Path #3

A dark magic he barely understands Froan sets out to claim his destiny When Yim seeks to stop him her sole hope is that Honus the love she abandoned will take up the sword again for Karm’s sake and hers Only then can she hope to face the impregnable bastion of unspeakable evil the Iron Palace I find this trilogy very hard to review I enjoyed them and wanted to find out what would happen next but I found the writing to be pretty flawed throughout the books and it was repetitive at times I am glad I read them and will probably check out his other trilogy but I am spoiled with fantasy books because I have read some truly fantastic writers over the years in the genre Overall a decent read but not great

N Froan is a young man And though Yim has raised him in the remote Grey Fens and kept him ignorant of his past the taint of the Devourer is in his bloodEven now an eldritch call goes out and the slumbering shadow stirs in Froan’s blood calling to him in a voice that cannot be denied Armed with At first I had a hard time getting through this book A lot of it was from Froan s perspective and he was a pretty unlikable character However when the tale turned to Yim and Honus the book really got my attention Yim and Honus have a very endearing relationship They both understand that even though they may love each other there are other things that come before each otherI am conflicted by the ending It seems Morgan Howell has a revulsion to a typical happy ending He prefers the bittersweet variety also like the ueen of the Orcs series Overall I enjoyed the series Morgan Howell is a master at Dark Fantasy and will continue to be an avid reader of his work

    At first I had a hard time getting through this book A lot of it was from Froan's perspective and he was a pretty unlikable character However when the tale turned to Yim and Honus the book really got my attention Yim and Honus have a very endearing relationship They both understand that even though they may love each other there
