Preview — Wolfblade by Jennifer Fallon. I understand that she is a character who goes from not knowing anything to becoming a student of Jennifwr learning tactics and strategies but she really annoyed me.
Vanaf ongeveer pagina 20 kon ik niet meer stoppen met lezen. Apr 03, Glitterfairy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Jennifer Fallon has remarkabl Ok, this is going to be a long review so be prepared. Are slaves stolen off the streets and forced into servitude?
I read it first and I don’t feel it spoiled anything, unlike most prequels. Jennifer Fallon is one of my favorite authors. She stands in vivid contrast to the Marla we know from the previous trilogy, and it is hard to get used to. Fallon is an extremely well-written book, with rich character development and motivations.
But after finishing, I have decided I may continue the trilogy, regardless of how formula the players are.
Especially of the places what in the name of all is Fardohnya? However, I don’t think that detracted much from the book, a I could not put this down. I highly recommend her work. My definition of a prequel has always been that it’s something a writer resorts to when they either can’t come up with new ideas, or they’re trying to squeeze book sales out of rewriting the same story about the same characters that made them a success.
As much as I love to read fantasy, it’s hard to summarize, or even articulate what worked or didn’t work for me as a reader. Marla Wolfbladeprincess of Hythriais determined to restore her family to its former power and glory.
All Fallon’s characters are clearly and surely defined: More political with a good deal of backstabbing and less magic but enjoyable as it follows this families struggle to gain leadership. Her brother is the High Prince of Hythria, and, in this fiercely patriarchal society, her fate will be decided on his whim.
Giver it a go and see if you liked it more than me. The princess struggles to assert her independence, even as her brother trades her away in marriage to consolidate his rule. Marla is one of those characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. This is not my favorite of Fallon’s books, but it is still good.
Her portrayal was dead-on.
I felt that it really bogged down the first book. It might falon better in the sequel but the problem is that I’m not motivated to read on. The book boasts a large cast of characters who all plot for gain or survival. In fact, I only saw her using her “knowledge” twice and for both times she just seemed to know what to do despite having no prior experience. The character noble surnames all seem to have some sort of animal, followed by a weapon – “Hawksword”, “Eaglespike”, “Wolfblade”, “Lionclaw”.
Fallon belongs among the ranks of the wolfbllade fantasy writers. Now the Chronicles are extended, in The Hythrun Chronicles. Along the way we are introduced to plenty of other intriguing characters, including a couple of frighteningly dysfunctional relatives-by-marriage of Marla’s, and her devoted servant, Elezaar the dwarf, who teaches his mistress the subtle arts of mennifer and one-upsmanship essential to a ruler.
I loved how the main wolblade goes from romantic, naive princess to an incredibly powerful woman who knows that sometimes you have to do things that are not necessarily on the white side of the spectrum. Mennifer a very gratifying arc for the most part, and one of the story’s strengths. It is the first in a trilogy titled the Wolfblade Trilogy.
Overall the book was a meh for me. And Eleazer is awesome.
Want to Read saving…. Thankfully, Fallon gets past that and ultimately delivers a wonderful book. Yeah, she is about at ambitious and morally bankrupt as they come, but there is a deep love of country behind what she does.

A computer trainer and application specialist, Fallon currently wolfbpade in the IT industry and spends at least fallkn month each year working at Scott Base in Antarctica. Jennifer Fallon has remarkable skill in fluidity of words. She was able to transition to one characters view to another without confusing or annoying the reader. First, she sometimes presents events from the point of view of a dying person. Overall, she lead more with her heart and desires rather then with her brain.
She grows from faolon willful child to a master politician, under the helpful tutelage of a slave with his own agenda. And the other middle classes have two names – “Ronan Dell”, fallin Lightfinger”, etc. Decided to re-read this series since the last time I was read it was 10 years ago. It’s a very strange trope to use so deliberately. Sure I know a few things about one or two characters, but for the most part, this book has a fresh new story with great characters and packed with political intrigue.

Marla WolfbladeElezaar. Paperbackpages. Yet I found her own adventures and struggles even more interesting. In Fallon’s intricately plotted final novel in the Wolfblade trilogy after Wolfblade and WarriorMarla Wolfblade’s wily offspring take top billing.
That Fallon is able to surprise loyal readers is impressive.
So it’s easy to remember who is who.
