S about Sara Douglass s work is that her protagonists are not always heroes and things don t often work out cleanly for all involved I know a lot of people don t like that but to me it s a delightful strength because it s less predictable and real than a lot of fantasy writingin this book our heroine spends a lot of time
Forgiving People For Pushing Her Around And Lamenting Her Own people for pushing her around and lamenting her own until vents force her to take charge of her own fate unfortunately in whichever action she takes she will inevitably betray someone there are no asy choicesher two love interests are ually problematic one a kind but very love interests are Historical Lovecraft eually problematic one a kind but very headed rebel leader who pressures her into becoming a spy and the other the cruel and abusive nobleman she spies on It was all right The main character started really bugging me about halfway through the book I just couldn t handle view spoilerher and Boaz s relationship Talk about textbook abusive hide spoiler It was an okay book The first half was really good andxciting I really loved the Tirzah Yaob Boaz love triangle The plot was also xciting I was really anticipating what vil lurks in Threshold But after Tirzah and Boaz got together and the The Life Of Herbert Hoover Volume 1 evil from Threshold was releasedverything went downhill The second part was kind of boring I wished it was shortened by the author A lot of unnecessary and silly stuff like the Fetizzah It was really weird Also the author made use of a lot of deus The Murders In The Rue Morgue ex machina using Fetizzah Maybediting the second part would make the story better A little mystery is also good This is for mature readers who also loves young adult fantasy books. Ms to her in pain For it knows what neither Tirzah nor any of the Magi suspectSomething waits in Infinity watching biding its time and when the final glass plate is laid and the capstone cemented in blood it plans to use Threshold to step from Infinity into Ashdo. ,
I read this book a long time ago when I
was a teenager with already a lot of fantasy under my belt Unfortunately that meant I didn t njoy thisa teenager with already a lot of fantasy under my belt Unfortunately that meant I didn t njoy this at all Filled with cliches blatant Practical Homoeopathic Therapeutics errors you don t calllementalists Necromancers you just don t not without showing ignorance of the genre andor disrespecting your readersThe core romantic relationship in this book is unintentionally based around Stockholm Syndrome and there really isn t anything surprising in here Sorry can t please The Chronicle Of William Of Puylaurens everyone I m not sure that I want to read this any In the Kindle sample the main character and her father arenslaved because her father s drinking gambling tc has landed them in debt However our heroine blames herself because when the guards or whatever broke in to arrest her she dropped the vase she was working on which was apparently so fine that it could ve paid off all their debts She s So Damn Passive That She damn passive that she t angry at her father AT ALL ven though the bastard has Instrumentation Handbook For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants effectively ruined her life She BLAMES HERSELF Later on our heroine is raped by the man who purchases her and she thinks to herself that she deserved it because she dropped the vase and doesn t hate her rapist at all So unless this book magically gets better and less offensive as it goes I won t be reading it I love this book It is worth reading and has some interesting things to say on the number one Makes math look like fun ha ha Threshold is officially listed as a standalone novel However if youver have any intention of reading the Darkglass Mountain Trilogy by the same author you might want to pick this one up first or have. Over the hot southern land of Ashdod looms the shadow of Threshold the pyramid which the Magi of Ashdod are building to propel themselves into Infinity Over the years thousands of slaves have given their lives to the construction of Threshold Now construction is. Every single last plot point ruined for you I ve never actually cracked the spine on this book but I can tell
You Every Major Charactereventconflictevery major charactereventconflict it So despite my better judgement I m marking the book as read and rating it anyway The same goes with Behind the Hanging Wall I wish they had been listed honestly somewhere as preuels As a side note Darkglass also has major spoilers for the 6 WayfarerAxis books so you might want to read those first as well Luckily I already had Strong start Terrible middle Blech Bones In Their Wings ending I really liked the initial concept of the story and the main character was interesting And then it went off the rails into this ridiculous Stockholm syndrome relationship and the main character lost all integrity as an interesting heroine In fact she became a very weak narrator and flimsy lame damsel Boo Okay a three point fiveNever really connected with the protagonistToo many plot crises solved tooasilyand too soon The first half of the book should have been dited to half it s length it seemed like such a good concept but falls apart pretty uickly and it just becomes terrible practically unreadable by the second half
of the book i can t ven mills and boone at its worst captive falls in love with herthe book i can t ven mills and boone at its worst captive falls in love with her and fixes him with love after he does the most heinous things to her i forced myself to read it because it is linked to the glass mountain trilogy also a disaster not as bad as this though im sorry sara i still love you and the rest of all the books related to this series regardless of their flaws but i just couldn t cope with this one one of my favorite thing. Almost complete; the Magi need only to add the finishing touchesThe Master of the Magi knows the glassworker slave Tirzah is hiding something but he would never guess her secret is forbidden magic Tirzah can communicate with glass and the glass in Threshold screa.
