One thought on “Cartomancy

  1. Michael Stackpole

    I ended up rereading the book because of comments Dennis L Mckiernan made to me about it I d forgotten much of the book, and it s better than I remember.

  2. Johnny

    The sequel to A Secret Atlas has the same strengths and weaknesses of its predecessor It is fabulous in imaginative spells, weapons, foes, and dialogue, but disjointed in the schizophrenic presentation of the epic flow of this world s history To be sure, Stackpole is Stackpole and that means that there are many delicious turns of phrase within this tome, but my personal opinion is that he is painting with a brush too large to capture the intricate motives and complex layers of personality equal [...]

    Damn you Michael Stackpole Damn you to hell.I have written before about this, but, for those who missed it many years ago, I attended a short lecture by Michael Stackpole on writing, and writing speculative fiction that s the cool term for sci fi fantasy these days, right in particular It was valuable, and probably would have been valuable if I was a little older and a little better focused, but such is life.One of the most explicit things I remember from that lecture is that Stackpole describe [...]

    For some reason it seems that the second book of a trilogy is always the one I like best Although I m not done with this trilogy yet, I can at least say that Cartomancy was even better than the first book The characters have been developed further, some questions have been answered, new ones have been discovered And after reading the last page I promptly continued with The New World because I had to know what happens next That alone speaks for the quality of Stackpole s writing.There s one thing [...]

  5. Heather

    I liked this book better than the first in the series I think this is mostly because I brought an understanding of the background of this fantasy world with me The members of the Anturasi household continue to evolve and change as they display their god like magical powers Prince Nelesquin is making ready to conquer the empire and usurp the throne Nirati seems to be having doubts about him Jorim has to endure a test to see if he is really Tetcomchoa returned and to confront the Mozoyan in epic n [...]

  6. Marko

    The second part of Stackpole s trilogy reminds me why I often shy away from high fantasy They have a tendency to escalate and escalate quickly While the first one was relatively down to earth, the second part brings in so much high magic, so many half gods and gods that the story quickly loses its human factor.Still, to Stackpole s praise, I must say that he holds on to the threads of his story very well and the characters remain interesting enough even though there s hardly a real human left fo [...]

  7. Brian Beahan

    First I want to say I read A New World by Stockpole over 5 years before I even Started this one I don t remember it being remarkable, but I also don t remember it being bad Maybe thats why it took me so long to pick this one up Anyway, despite all that time, the story was is unique enough that I was able to follow the characters and storyline easily It also helps that the writing is pretty darn good as well I would recommend this series to any fantasy types, its good.

  8. Kelly Flanagan

    I might be able to complete this book, after the first but so much is left out in regards to details you should know from the first book, that it is difficult to fully slip into the trance of the book, or simply being immersed in the written world smirk there are some interesting ideas and wonderfull places, but they seem as if they lie only on little fluuffy clouds, and there is void between them It makes for rough reading.

  9. Paul Allard

    A very good follow up to A Secret Atlas although a bit wordy There is a lot of action and character development with many surprises along the way, especially in the last lines of the book Enjoyable enough and I ll read the last part of the trilogy soon Reminiscent of the work of Robert VS Redick in a lot of ways so, if you enjoyed his work, you ll like this but read the first part of the trilogy first

  10. Alyn

    Took me forever to slog through it Some character development was enjoyable The story threads started to multiply The twist at the very end is compelling But overall, I don t think I ll read the next one I didn t like the psychopathic murder Seemed like just putting in something disturbing for shock value.

  11. Kalyn

    Meh Possibly because I didn t read the first book, this one didn t quite grab my interest I caught up pretty quick to where the characters were, but the rest maybe I ll reread it later.

  12. Steven

    This one has a cool idea, but I was busy and trying to read other things I might come back to it later.

  13. Matt Marvan

    Fantastic Builds on the first one very well, tons of magic and plotting and fighting and assassination attempts with a wonderful twist at the end that makes me want to read the third one right now

  14. Michael

    Definitely better than the first book with lots on enticement to get me into the third Hoping the third book holds up to the second, perhaps it will even be better.

  15. Lindsey

    A book with excellent potential The characters are a bit flat compared to Stackpole s other works, but the premise shows promise.
