    Rating 3 of fiveWraeththu as a concept strikes me now as not terribly gay At the time I read this, maybe I thought it was on a par with Ethan of Athos as social commentary, but now it feels forced and slightly silly to me.Also, pelki EW.

    I d really like to write a good review, not only of this book but of the two trilogies I ve just finished However, a string of adjectives such as amazing , stunning , fabulous and so on doesn t feel like enough No matter how I try to describe how I felt reading these books, with its complex main characters, its colourful, rich array of secondary characters, and how they all relate in a hundred complex ways, plus the vidid descriptions, the magical settings, the mysteries of love, sex and p I d really like to write a good review, not only of this book but of the two trilogies I ve just finished However, a string of adjectives such as amazing , stunning , fabulous and so on doesn t feel like enough No matter how I try to describe how I felt reading these books, with its complex main characters, its colourful, rich array of secondary characters, and how they all relate in a hundred complex ways, plus the vidid descriptions, the magical settings, the mysteries of love, sex and procreation in Wraeththu life, the beautiful writing style and power of narration Everyone, go and read them for yourselves if you haven t in the right order, of course the odds are that these books will change your inner world the way they ve changed mine

    My favorite of the seriesWarning This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS Rating 9 10PROS It s interesting seeing all of the events in this story from the perspectives of new characters We get to see many of the old favorites the main characters from the earlier books , but we see them with a new set of eyes, from the point of view of young hara who don t know all the political and emotional history of everyone else Constantine creates multi dimensional characters w My favorite of the seriesWarning This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS Rating 9 10PROS It s interesting seeing all of the events in this story from the perspectives of new characters We get to see many of the old favorites the main characters from the earlier books , but we see them with a new set of eyes, from the point of view of young hara who don t know all the political and emotional history of everyone else Constantine creates multi dimensional characters who are neither wholly good nor wholly bad The villains, for example, often seem hateful at first, but as the other characters come to understand and even love them, I could feel my feelings toward them transitioning as well I feltconnected to the characters in this story both good and bad than I have with any of the previous volumes The new worlds introduced in each new book seembeautiful and fantastical and brilliant than those introduced in the books before it This series is worth a read if only for the descriptions of the realms the characters inhabit The politics in this story are so complex that I was never sure who was in the right and who was in the wrong who the good guys and the enemies were, who was being honest and who was playing a political game, who was being used as a pawn, etc.CONS The language in this volume is a bit less mystical than that of the earlier books It s not that the writing in this book is bad far from it it s just that a bit of the magic of Constantine s writing is gone when she uses simple, straightforward language that contrasts so greatly with her previous writing style There s one minor difference between these History books and the original trilogy that I find a little irritating with the later installments in the series, Constantine takes to writing har in the place of one in pronouns that is, nohar, somehar, everyhar, etc It s an interesting convention, but because the original books don t do it and these later ones do, it jars me for some reason.Overall comments This is my favorite of the Wraeththu books, because I became muchengrossed in the worlds and in the characters lives than I did with the earlier volumes There are references throughout to characters and terms introduced earlier in the series, so I think you ll be quite lost if you attempt to read this book without having read at least some of the earlier ones I had trouble myself, and it s been only six months or so since I read the most recent predecessor It truly is worth the time to go back and read all six of the books, though I doubt you ll be disappointed

    Back when I reviewed the first Wraeththu trilogy, I mentioned I could accept the ending but didn t find it personally satisfying Without giving anything away, I ll just say that this trilogy gave me what I felt I was missing It gave it gradually, so that with each book I thought, Okay, sure, I get that, but how are you gonna explain how it relates to this now By the end of this book, though, I had noquestions.I m glad to have it all explained, and I enjoyed the experience of learnin Back when I reviewed the first Wraeththu trilogy, I mentioned I could accept the ending but didn t find it personally satisfying Without giving anything away, I ll just say that this trilogy gave me what I felt I was missing It gave it gradually, so that with each book I thought, Okay, sure, I get that, but how are you gonna explain how it relates to this now By the end of this book, though, I had noquestions.I m glad to have it all explained, and I enjoyed the experience of learning each thing along with the characters even if it wasn t what I personally would have wanted the facts to be But I kept longing for the first trilogy and all the characters arrogant assumptions I missed how desperate and tragic it felt With the characters understanding the Wraeththu universe completely now, it made it feel like we could leave them at the end of this book and they would be all right But that peace and maturity replaced the youthful naivete that attracted me to the characters in the first place.The book totally nods to that, however Even though my favorites of the first generation are still around, the second generations are truly taking over by this book And as Constantine says, it s their time now It just makes me wistful for the good ol days when nobody understood anything, especially me

    Better than Wraiths 1 of Histories 4 of all six , slightly worse than Shades 2 5 , which I consider the best book out of all 6, but out of my love for this series as a whole, I decide to give it 5 stars in the end as well Why not I am overwhelmed by a strong sense of And now what I hate leaving worlds, once I have learned to love them and feel comfortable within them It s why I re read books so muchI guess I gotta read all the other stories within the universe now Not sure h Better than Wraiths 1 of Histories 4 of all six , slightly worse than Shades 2 5 , which I consider the best book out of all 6, but out of my love for this series as a whole, I decide to give it 5 stars in the end as well Why not I am overwhelmed by a strong sense of And now what I hate leaving worlds, once I have learned to love them and feel comfortable within them It s why I re read books so muchI guess I gotta read all the other stories within the universe now Not sure how many of those are soft canon and how many are hard canon Gotta find out Just gotta find em or I gotta write one

    Good but not greatI thoroughly enjoyed all the other books In those I was able to connect with each character and they will always be some of my favorite characters I was disappointed in this one though The sons were fascinating but everything seemed rushed and didn t have as much depth as the others I felt like Cal and Pell deserved a muchdetailed ending after six books There was just too much to try and cover so it fell flat Still glad I read it, but it pales in comparison.

    We get into the second generation of Wraeththu here, with all the intrigue, complexity, and mystery of the previous manifestations of Constantine s world I loved this continuation, and despite the density and length of the material read it super fast, because it was impossible to put down.

    Storm Constantine burned genius in the first trilogy Then, the histories happened.

    As was my complaint with several other books in the Wraeththu universe, the fascinating characters are somewhat lost in the overly involved storyline, and every new friendship could be reality shattering sometimes literally I would have liked somethingdown to earth, without all the cosmic entities and parallel universes Darq was not the most believable character since he was so different from everyone else, and I didn t buy into those differences Aruna as a concept was still dealt wit As was my complaint with several other books in the Wraeththu universe, the fascinating characters are somewhat lost in the overly involved storyline, and every new friendship could be reality shattering sometimes literally I would have liked somethingdown to earth, without all the cosmic entities and parallel universes Darq was not the most believable character since he was so different from everyone else, and I didn t buy into those differences Aruna as a concept was still dealt with pretty fantastically sex is not only socially acceptable, but required to maintain your sanity , though I find that I prefer the descriptions from younger characters for whom the experience is still new.This book wrapped the series up quite well, but it didn t impress me because I wanted the focus to be lives of the individual characters, not the otherworldly battle for power that they ve become pawns in This series hit its stride early on and never managed to give me the intimacy I felt with the main characters from the first two books tl dr I love the concept of the Wraeththu and the characters but could have done without such a convoluted plotline

    I love when stories end, but don t really end, only to hint atThat s how this series ended for me I m glad things are finally going better for this new race of people This book felt like a major departure from the rest of the Wraeththu books, but I believe it was purposeful Storm Constantine wrote this from the perspective of a new generation of hara coming into their own, which is different from the first generation struggles of a new species I found it masterfully crafted and perfect I love when stories end, but don t really end, only to hint atThat s how this series ended for me I m glad things are finally going better for this new race of people This book felt like a major departure from the rest of the Wraeththu books, but I believe it was purposeful Storm Constantine wrote this from the perspective of a new generation of hara coming into their own, which is different from the first generation struggles of a new species I found it masterfully crafted and perfectly written.It does get a little slow toward the middle, but I think it was necessary to build up to the crazy climax Nothing is without purpose in this story, and that s what I appreciate about Constantine s writing.I cannot recommend the Wraeththu series enough, especially if you are part of the LGBT community It s a poignant story for our time
