Read as part of 'Book of Athyra' omnibus. ( )

We've got a whole new Vlad in a whole new land and a whole new MC.

Yup, we've gone from big boss to a side role as a mentor for a backwater healer's apprentice, and I can't say I dislike it. We've got all the traditional coming of age elements, a murder mystery, undead lords, and mean small-town peeps.

More importantly, we have the mental space and development necessary to turn a young man into a fully-functioning and thoughtful killer who will be henceforth plagued with not just nightmares, but full-blooming madness.

Great job, Vlad. Smooth move.

/em facepalm

What it doesn't have in huge action and movement, it makes up for in fully developed new characters.

Two thumbs up! Very entertaining!

My least favorite of the series so far. Much of the story is told from a Teckla named Savn's point of view, and he isn't all that interesting. Overall disappointing. ( )

At one time, many years ago, this was one of my favorite series. Then life got busy and I didn't like the last book as much and I left the series behind. I decided I wanted to give it one more chance.

I reread the first two books but realized I remembered the story enough to get on with it. I am glad I did. I liked this book a lot. I didn't love it but it had all the things I remember love about this series. Including a main character who is not always that likable. I will most certainly go onto the next book. ( )

I was expecting that Athyra would be a book I just had to get through to reach the rest of the series on the other side. I was not expecting to like it so much.

(I'm not sure now of all the reasons I was so reluctant to read this. I certainly wasn't enthusiastic about a third-person narrative, from the perspective of a new character - half the appeal of these books is Vlad's first-person narration, and if you lose that, you also lose his sense of humour and his psionic conversation with his Jhereg familiar, Loiosh. And because Vlad had to leave the city of Adrilankha at the end of Phoenix, the chances of many, if any, of his friends turning up in Athyra, were remote. Possibly I'd also read a less-than-glowing review or two.)

Athyra is about Savn, a young Teckla (young by Dragearan standards, not human ones) who finds himself at odds with his community after he helps an outsider (Vlad). It's a really solid coming-of-age story, and focusing on Savn rather than Vlad makes a lot of sense - Savn is more of an active player, especially after Vlad is injured.
There's an interesting tension, too, in realising that what is best for Vlad is not necessarily what is best for Savn - and wanting what is best for both of them, simultaneously.

The ending of Athyra is a punch in the gut that I did not see coming… and it meant I had to read Orca immediately.

Why am I doing this? he wondered, and the answer came as quickly as he’d formed the question.
If he ignored Vlad, he’d never learn anything more, and what he’d learned felt like a door that had opened just enough to let him see that on the other side was a place he desperately wanted to visit, maybe even to live. And he knew he would always berate himself for cowardice if he let himself be driven away from the Easterner.
