Ik vind deze boeken zelfs zo leuk dat ik door aan het lezen ben in een ander deel dat niet vertaald is. En dat doe ik nooit. Mar 07, Tina rated it it was amazing Shelves: Decided to re-read this series since the last time I was read it was 10 years ago.
Remember really liking it and wondered if it would stand up. Enjoyed it as much the second time and while I remembered some stuff, I’d forgotten enough that the reading was almost like new.
Warlord (Wolfblade Trilogy) by Jennifer Fallon – book review
Still a five-star favorite. Not because it is of the typical fantasy ilk, but because of the guy on the cover. He looks like Gabriel Aubry. Halle Berry’s baby daddy. In other words, HOT! Now that I have gotten that totally shallow piece of business off my chest, on with the real review.
This is the third and final installment of Jennifer Fallon’s Warlord trilogy and she ends it in superb fashion. In this book we see the fruition of many smaller plot threads that were started in the first book.
Marla’s first and ruthlessly spurned suitor, Hablet, the King of Fardonhya decides to invade Hythrun and kill off her family. Unbeknownst to wwarlord people of Hythrun, there is a little known law that a living Wolfblade can actually rule Fardonya, The time is opportune because the Hythrun people have just jennider devastated by a deadly plague that Alija allowed to spread in one of her more bonehead schemes to kill off Damin Wolfblade.
Damin not only survives the plague, but rises to the challenge of war. Meanwhile, there are many domestic dramas playing out: Damin’s uncle Makhas is determined to warlodr of his daughter to Damin with disastrous results; Teryn Lionclaw is on the run from her incompetent husband wqrlord has fallen under the influence of a scheming courtier; Damin’s younger brother, Narvelle Wolfblade has entered into a romance with a married woman whose husband is a powerful Warlord out for his blood; The Assassin’s guild has called on Marla to honor a promise she made to them so long ago; and Kalan, Marla and Wrayan Lightfinger hatch a diabolical scheme to bring Alija to justice.
So much happens and all of it is both exciting and satisfying.
It is nice to see the younger Wolfblades, all grown up and coming into their own. I especially like that Damin, who had consciously adopted the mien of a young, carefree, bon vivant, sheds that false image in a flash when it matters and finally to the surprise of everyone shows the true mettle of the son of Marla Wolfblade. And just in the previous two books, Fallon knows when and how to turn what could be a predicatable plot moment into an unpredictable, often shocking twist.
She does it on several occasions in this book and keeps the story moving in a grandly entertaining fashion. My favorite part is, when seeing her children safely grown up, Marla finally decides to bring her fight with Alija right out in the open.
All bets are off. She delivers a stunning body blow to Alija and the two women take off the gloves figuratively speaking and go for broke in the last chapter of the war they’ve been politely and in deadly fashion waging wqrlord each other for 25 years.
Also, the humor that was more evident in the second book continues on in this one. It isn’t cloying or even pervasive. But there is a lightness of tone, a dryness of wit that abounds. The crackling battle of wits between the fierce King of Fardhonya and his high maintenance yet stunningly canny daughter Princess Adrina is delightful.
As is the banter between Jejnifer and his brothers. When I finally closed the book on this series I sat back and sighed with pleasure. It was a great trilogy, fun to read and I can’t wait to see what else Jennifrr Fallon has in store for us.
Who the hell lets lose a plague to kill one person? It hasn’t to be the most blood thirsty attempt at assassination I’ve ever seen, and it didn’t even work. Alija Eaglespike, who has been a bitch the entire series, ramps it up in this, the last of the trilogy.
At least she gets what she deserves by the end of the book.
I guess Uennifer should apologize for starting this review off in such a strange way, but seriously, the woman was evil. And though she has been trying to kill Damin and install her own h Who the hell lets lose a plague to kill one person?
And though she has been trying to kill Damin and install her own heir into the jennider of the High Prince, the stone coldness was truly on display in this book. Between her and Mahkas, this book was jennnifer lacking villains. And it seems such a shame. Considering the power these two individuals wielded, the intelligence that they clearly possessed, it was such a waste of potential. They could have been courageous, strong leaders, but they let greed and the love of power get in the way.

I continued to love the extended family that Marla built up around herself and Damin. Though they came into it from different directions and different backgrounds, this jennifef a group of people who truly care fallonn each other, and are willing to stick around when times get tough. Such a unique and complicated character. He is the perfect match for Marla at this time in her life, and he fits into the family with ease. The two standouts for me in this book, besides Damin who I love, where Tejay and Starros.
They are two characters who don’t fit into any easy mold, but have such a core of strength running through them. They come at awrlord in different ways, have different beliefs, and want different things, but they both shine in this book. At some point int time this year I will reread and review the previous trilogy, which actually takes place before this one.
If they are half as good as these three books have been, and from what I can remember they are, I’m really looking forward to it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

As much as he grew physically and the world changed around him, the reveal of his true personality was striking, proving very well that he is much more intelligent than anyone ever expected.
Also, I am still impressed that Fallon could keep the timeline straight between the two trilogies without missing any details. Aug 17, J rated it it was ok. I first read Wolfblade when I was a teenager and I loved it like crazy. Not surprising, given that my emotional maturity was then approximately the emotional maturity of the main character, Marla Wolfblade.
I was riveted by her hunt for power and her need to protect her loved ones. I loved how she took a turn from being a silly girl into a powerful administrator.
The trilogy had lots of twists and turns, an Warning: The trilogy had lots of twists and turns, and I thought the hennifer so funny and light-hearted. Everyone speaks in warlorf the same voice. Slavery is treated cavalierly; power is wielded without truly dealing with its consequences.
For example, in the middle of the second book, Marla Wolfblade rules, after her magically brainwashed adopted step-daughter Luciena tries to kill her jennider son Damin, that for the crime of attempted assassination, the adopted step-daughter deserves death. Luciena, who was not conscious of trying to kill Damin, suffers through weeks in prison and the uennifer of the matriarch of family she thought she’d finally gained deciding she should die for an act she did not intend.
Fallon then has a last-minute deus ex machina when Luciena is exonerated by a very fast-traveling sorcerer-thief. But are there any emotional consequences to the trauma that Luciena has been exposed to?
She does not fear or hate Marla for ordering her execution. She is not even residually uncomfortable when a grown-up Damin jokes about Luciena trying to kill him. Meanwhile, another warlodd Damin and fears him because, wait for it, he called her a sissy when they were teenagers. She hates and fears him so much that, even though as an adult he’s never treated her poorly, when she thinks her lover is dead and she will be forced into marrying Damin, she commits suicide.
I mean, there were also other circumstances for Leila’s suicide, including the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of her father, but seriously??
