Om forfatteren

Elizabeth Haydon was born in 1965. She is a fantasy author. She has written two fantasy series set within the same universe. The first is the fantasy/romance/whodunit fusion called The Symphony of Ages and the second is a young adult series called The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme. The Symphony of vis mere Ages books series consists of the Rhapsody Trilogy, the two Middle Books, and, as of January 2014, the first book of The War of the Known World Trilogy. The Rhapsody Trilogy is based on three characters who find themselves in a land on the brink of disaster. Rhapsody, the main character, is a Namer, a profession that includes passing down the history of the people. As a Namer, Rhapsody, can only speak the truth. A Namer has incredible power because when they speak they describe the very nature of a person or a thing. In some instances a Namer can change the parameters of a person or a thing by giving it a new name. When Rhapsody meets up with her two future companions she accidentally uses her Naming power to rename The Brother, a ruthless assassin, to "Achmed The Snake." (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Waaay too much romancey sex and feelings. I'm not sure that the endless descriptions of 'love' added anything to the story.

Oh god, thank you that that is over. It just went on and on and on. At one point in the audiobook I started yelling "just get on with it already".

Sigh. I have fond memories of this series, but it's not aging well for me. I'm not sure I will continue--which is a shame because I'd like to know what happens. Maybe I'll just skip to the last book in the series.

Continuing my Symphony of Ages re-read, I had very little recollection of this book. Definitely a middle book? Certainly not clear what the end game of this series is yet, but I enjoyed spending more time with these characters.

Continuing my Symphony of Ages re-read and this is...such a middle book. Spends too much time on characters that I don't care about (Anwyn, Faron), but we do get Meridion's birth at last!
