characters · Elven Star The Death Gate Cycle #2 ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB On steamy Pryan never ending sunlight and plentiful rain have created a jungle so vast that humans and elves dwell high in the trees and only dwarves live anywhere near the ground From the treetops t. Don warned me that this was his least favourite book in the series and yep It pretty much sucked Everything that made the first book so good was basically absent from this onePlot In Dragon Wing the plot started early and it was interesting right from the beginning Political intrigue backstabbing revolution and everything all intertwined into an engrossing twisty plot In Elven Star the plot took forever to get going and when it did it was clunky awkward and uninteresting I mean really giants pretty much destroying the entire world and its population lacks a certain subtlety And as for the elf human and dwarf uniting to save the world That doesn t even make sense For starters there never was such a grouping At one point there was an elf a dwarf and two humans but by the end it was uite a band with a few elves some humans and Haplo And as for saving the world they made no such attempt They pretty much just made a run for it and escaped with their own lives So the plot Not goodCharacters The characters in Dragon Wing were interesting They had dimension and depth and you cared about them Several of them sort of evolved as you learn new information about who they really were and where they came from The characters in Elven Star were dull and flat They turned out to be exactly who and what you thought they were the moment they were introduced Each of them basically had one dominant personality trait if that and that s all there was to them The only one with even any hint of than one level and we re pretty much talking about two levels here nothing profound than that was Aleatha and she was really of a secondary characterAnd don t even get me started on the great passionate love affair between Paithan and Rega Sure I was told often enough by the narrative how much they loved each other but I never really saw it I didn t see it develop it was just all of a sudden there because the author told me it was And despite the great controversy it caused among their respective people he was an elf and she was a human I felt nothing for it Be together or don t I don t care There was depth and genuineness in the brief hints at the attraction between Hugh and Iridal in the final pages of Dragon Wing than there was in the whole book s worth of the Paithan Rega romance Roland and Aleatha if cliched and also not that interesting was at least mildly entertainingSetting In Dragon Wing the setting was crucial to the plot Getting from one island to the next was a major issue and where in the strata of islands one happened to live made a huge impact on one s life The eternal sun and rain of this world was almost irrelevant for most of the book At the beginning there was a mention of fans which was just about the only nod to the fact that it s bloody hot on this world And occasionally the fact that they have no darkness was brought up but barely and it really only became really relevant near the end when they find the citadel which has night I just feel that a world referred to as Realm of Fire should be a hell of a lot hotter maybe even with some actual fire not endless rain What is that about and there really shouldn t be a different book set in a different realm that actually has the word fire in its title but that s a whole other issue In any case the point is this story could have taken place just about anywhere in any setting and it wouldn t have made any difference And if you re going to go to the trouble of creating four different worlds each supposedly with a dominant element that element should really play into things a whole lot than it did hereZifnab He wasn t in Dragon Wing and that alone made it much better I m told that Zifnab is pretty much an inside joke type nod to a character from the Dragonlance books and he was a big mistake as far as I m concerned He added nothing except asshattery and his constant real earth pop culture references were not cute funny or endearing they were merely stupid I could maybe almost forgive it if real earth actually came into the picture at some point but apparently it doesn t so there s absolutely no excuse and I dearly hope that Don s right in his recollection that when we see this character again later he uits that shitSo yeah A bunch of boring characters having a boring adventure on a boring planet with a character who makes Jar Jar Binks seem awesome If I ever for some reason find myself re reading this series I think I ll skip this one Anything important will be re iterated in the subseuent books so I won t miss anythingOne interesting pattern that is either developing or is coincidence in both books the first major character we re introduced to doesn t survive the book Will that go anywhere I don t know But I ll be watching for it Reticence Custard Protocol #4 uninteresting I mean really giants pretty much destroying the entire world and its population lacks a certain subtlety And as for the elf human and dwarf

Easily the worst in the series the hurried prose is lackluster and the characters are flat and dull It feels phoned in and halfhearted as well as transparently irrelevant to the rest of books It s as though they adopted this story from some other project Even the Dragonlance fan service crossover doesn t lift its sails 15 stars Read it uickly and move on the series gets better again after this unfortunate lull
