Daniel Abraham ✓ 2 Free read Summary · PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Daniel Abraham Free read ↠ The Price of Spring É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ord hoping the Khaiem men and Galtic women will produce a new generation to help create a peaceful futureBut Maati a poet who has been in hiding for years driven by guilt over his part in the disastrous end of the war defies tradition and begins training female poets With Eiah the emperor’s daughter helping him he intends to create andat to restore the world. If it is the only way to save us then we aren t worth saving I wanted to love this book It turned out that the ultimate price was too high for me to pay The world is devastated and laid barren by the war Two enemy nations after a genocidal campaign started by one and finished by another are locked in complementary curses Otah Machi the emperor of this fallen world faces a future with no future in it if the Khaiem and the Galt do not unite both will perish If you are afraid that this is yet another book about how Otah Machi saves the world I hasten to reassure you that thankfully in the Price of Spring the centre of the stage is taken by his daughter Eiah In the past she would have been defined by the reproductive abilities of her body in the new world she is free of any expectations and pursues a medical career Also she is estranged from her father who sacrificed half of the nation in the name of a peace compromise and who cannot see anything wrong with it For his daughter Otah is a man who turned against his own people in order to salvage foreign people worse even invaders Eiah was the brightest point of the whole book engaged intelligent and compassionate but not in a simple way of a diamond cut paragonThe final instalment in the uartet tackles the topic of loss and longing Not the ordinary wishfulness but a deep yearning that changes your desire into a disease a wanting that that develops into a sickness But eually it is also a book about healing that one of the main protagonists is a doctor makes it even poignant And healing is never an easy or a fast process some things will always remain beyond repair This is why the motif of redemption sometimes impossible is the third pillar of the book There are crimes that can t be made right Trying to make justice out of this will only make it longer As the two crippled states hobble together there are still some who believe that past can still be salvaged and work to thwart the rapprochement For me the bromance between Otah and Balasar was utterly disgusting I have to say that I entirely surprised shocked myself by being totally team Maati in this instalment I simply couldn t stand Otah s rightful arrogance Instead Maati who doesn t give up who believes that human ideas given form and volition do not necessarily have to be evil who conducts illegal research and runs an underground university for women this older Maati turned out to be not exactly a stellar hero but somebody I could finally attach to view spoilerAnd who ultimately had his thread just cut and abandoned in a very underhanded way That was badly done Mr Abraham hide spoiler

No elvesno trollsno hobbitsno magic wands no legendary swordsabsolutely no problemThe Long Price uartet is one of the truly remarkable achievements in epic fantasy over the last decade A uniue fully realized and thoroughly convincing three dimensional world that oozes authenticity and has been decorated with a single amazing fantasy element ie the andat that forms the dramatic focal point for the narrative tension throughout the series Congratulations Mr Abraham on a job most spectacularly well done In describing the series the morally nuanced characters and the political bent of the main plot is bound to call Martin s SOIAF to mind by way of comparison However as much as I mangasm over Martin s series it s a disservice to tie Abraham s work to that particular hip This is uniue This is singular and an example of the best that fantasy can do PLOT SUMMARYWarningthe plot summary below necessarily includes references to events that have occurred over the previous three books though little that is not disclosed on the back flap of the book itselfIt s 15 years after the disastrous war between the Khaiem and the Galts has left both people devastated and the last andat eliminated from the world along with all written knowledge of how to create and bind new ones In the wake of the andat s destruction the men of Galt have been rendered sterile as have the women of the Khaiem The only hope for either people is a desperate blending of the two peoples an agglomeration that will reuire overcoming generations of mistrust deep seated hatred and memories of atrocitiesOh and if matters weren t precarious enough a group of would be poets are working in secret to correct the damage done to the two peoples by creating a new andat an action that could rupture forever the fragile hope of peace between the two countries Ahtension filled story telling awesomenessTHOUGHTSSo many aspects of this series are unusually polished and worthy of note My personal favorite is the page time given to the descriptions of and interactions with the powerful and dangerous andat ie ideas and concepts made manifest and given human form Throughout my experiences with the fantasy genre I have never encountered a elouent beautifully conceived magic than the binding of the andat nor one that perfectly encapsulates the risks and dangers of weilding such power as the relationship between the andat and their creator poets It is simply gorgeousKeep that in mind because as much praise as I dump below on the other aspects of the story my love of the concept of the andat and all it represents is clearly 1 Coming in at 2 would be the characters I don t recall a fantasy series that has been able to imbue characters with this much genuineness while deftly avoiding the boredom that can sometimes result from such portrayals These people live and breathe on the page and constrain us to care for them despite the risk that such caring brings with it The personality profiles are broad and deep and filled with wonderful uirks For example Otah aging and troubled ruler of the Khaiem who writes letters to his dead wife who he misses with every breath Well love it s all gone as well as a wicker fish boat Ana won t have Danat Danat won t have Ana I find myself host to the worst gathering in history not actually struck by plague I think the only thing I ve done well is that I did not wrestle our son to the ground when he walked away from me I feel everyone is wrapped up in what happened before and I m alone in fearing what will come after We won t survive love The Khaiem and the Galts both are sinking and we re so short sighted and mean of spirit we re willing to die if it means the other bastard goes down too This plot device allows us a uniue window into Otah whose actions are hated by a majority on both sides who view him as either traitor or fiend These moments and others allow us to see a man struggling to do what he feels he must to save a world The above dovetails nicely into 3 on the list of strengths the the prose It is precise practical and potent and conveys the powerful emotive story on glassy currents that never intrude on the reader s connection with the characters or the plot Not as lush as Vance or as evocative as Tolkien or as savagely engaging as Abercrombie but perfect for the uiet seriousness of the story I m tempted to call this Literature but that sounds so damn snobby and derisive to the other uality works out there I ll just say that it s impressive and wonderfully balanced Rounding out my top 5 we have 4 politics and 5 customs which mesh together seamlessly Abraham has created cultures that feel offspring to eastern and middle eastern patterns than the typical Western European standards found so often in epic fantasy My favorite aspect of this flavoring is that Abraham s Khaiem communicate as much through posture body language and gestures as through speech This adds a wonderful feel to the dialogues For example when an aide informs Otah that someone wishes an audience Otah smiled and took a pose that granted the reuest and implied that the guest should be brought to him here the nuance only slightly hampered by the pen still in his hand So much information communicated through non verbal means I have never seen this techniue deployed so well in fantasy literature and I found it to be one of those rich details that added weight to the story Then there is the politics something that this series does as well as any in recent years It may sound oxymoronic but this is realpolitik with honor and compassion This is not emotionally devoid ends justify the means callousness This is complex big issue politics being played by people straddling the grey line of moral ambiguity while trying to do what they feel is right Here is a favorite uote from early in the story Khai Otah s son and the daughter of a Galt noble family have refused to marry to cement an alliance between the people and the aunt of the Galt woman advises Otah s son to be seen with another woman Preferably someone prettier than my daughter You needn t look shocked my boy I ve lived my life in court While you poor dears are out swinging knives at each other there are wars just as bloody at every grand ball I feel the gush gates threatening to burst so I will wrap up by saying that I was truly impressed with this series and this final novel managed to arrive at conclusions for each of the various plot threads without feeling rushed or convenient This is a wonderful series and one that I strong urge you to check out 40 stars HIGHLY
