    1. The Lord of Lies is the second and final instalment in the Strange Threads duology a wonderful new Fantasy series centred on a group of Wardens the strongest threaders magic wielders in Aorn They had banded together centuries ago to defeat the tyrant Lord Regret, but were corrupted by his powers in the process Aorn has since been off balance, but now it is even so, with the return on the Wardens after a three hundred year absence, and unless the corruption is fixed, everything could be torn apa [...]

    2. I don t even know where to start The incredibly realistic cast of characters, the creative powers of the Wardens, the original to me, anyway storyline, or even the way it ended, the epilogue that indirectly told us that Rostigan finally found what he was searching for I don t know where to start, so I ll just say it was amazing then curse myself for my inabilty to put my thoughts into words.

    3. Enth lt Spoiler zum ersten Teil der Reihe The Legacy of Lord Regret Der Herr der Tr nen.Inhalt Salarkis, seines Zeichens W chter und Fadenwirker, hat sich an seinem bekannten R ckzugsort verkrochen.Er kann es kaum fassen, dass Forger versucht hat ihn zu t ten Wie kann er es wagen W tend betrachtet er seine beiden Klingen, die er nach gut D nken zum T ten aussenden kann Das wird Forger ihm b en Und so schickt Salarkis ein letztes Mal seine Klingen aus um die beiden Handlanger von Forger, ohne die [...]

    4. ACHTUNG es handelt sich hier um den zweiten Band einer Dilogie Meiner Meinung nach kann man diesen Band nicht lesen, ohne den ersten gelesen zu haben.Leider muss ich sagen, dass ich mich durch das erste Drittel geradezu durchgequ lt habe Der Leser wird direkt wieder mitten in die Geschichte geschmissen, mit all ihren verwickelten Wendungen und ihren zwiesp ltigen Charakteren Das k nnte ja eigentlich ein spannender Einstieg sein, aber ich war haupts chlich verwirrt Wer war das nochmal Moment, wie [...]

    5. Zum Inhalt Was mit dem Herrn der Tr nen begann, soll mit dem W chter der L gen endenNachdem die Anzahl der W chter drastisch reduziert wurde und die Welt mehr und mehr aus den Fugen ger t, bleibt Rostigan nichts anderes brig, als endlich zum entscheidenden Schlag auszuholen Ein letzter Plan muss geschmiedet werden, um die Wunde der Welt endlich zu schlie en, auch wenn es am Ende seinen eigenen Tod bedeutet Doch was einst genommen, muss wiedergegeben werdenF r das Wohl allerMeine Meinung F r alle [...]

    6. A FEW SPOILERS Finished with this book now.I liked how the story progressed till the end, though while it was interesting to read, then sadly I have to say, the ending was a little boring as I was sure it would go that way and I was hoping something would happen that would amaze me.I liked the characters though, but again, at a stage hoped that Forger would be a little evil, he kind of gave in too easily in the end Suppose I was hoping he d set up traps or do something after discovering Karak ha [...]

    7. The second half of the Strange Threads story is fantasy astic The tale picks up precisely where it left off, proceeds at the same pace, and presents a final fifth that is perfect What a finale I m still marvelling over the plot construction did Bowring pen a single book and split it in two Because The Lord of Lies lacks the smokey stench of stretched out sequel, and charges onward without any attempt at filling in newcomers a kindess, considering the small space between the release dates no one [...]

    8. Eigentlich sind es 4,5 Sterne Ein sehr sch nes Buch, genauso sch n geschrieben wie Teil 1, und ein guter Abschluss.Dennoch musste ich einen kleinen Abzug machen, weil mich an dem Ende ein paar Kleinigkeiten gest rt haben Zum Beispiel fand ich die Geschichte um Tarzi unvollst ndig, da sie nie erfahren hat, wer Rostigan wirklich ist Ich h tte gerne erlebt, wie sie mit dieser f r sie schockierenden Neuigkeit umgegangen w re.Au erdem bin ich ein bisschen wehm tig, denn ich h tte gerne mehr dar ber h [...]

    9. Man I blitzed this book There s something eminently readable about Bowring s novels, once I get started on one of them it s a struggle to put it down I definitely have to check out his Broken Well trilogy.Well written and characterised, and a satisfying end to the story started in the first novel Very good.I d like to make note of how nice it is to see a duology in a genre seemingly dominated by trilogies and sagas and so on That said, I d also like to say that I would have probably enjoyed a th [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book, but I still enjoyed the first better Overall there was a lot of character development in this book and that really helped with how you saw the world from different views.I did find that I ended up writing down all the warden s names and gifts on a piece of paper so I would not forget, because there was a lot of different characters.Overall I found the writing style easy and enjoyable to follow and it was a good book

    11. An enjoyable follow up to the first book, with a satisfying conclusion I d like to have imagined a follow up series continuing Rostigan s story, but the epilogue concluded things to the point I supposed a follow up would be unlikely.As with the first book, I would have loved a bit detail of the world from time to time, to add to the engaging story line Overall, I found it entertaining, and enjoyed the quirkiness of its lighter tone.

    12. Once again Sam Bowring has managed to lure me into a delirious and captivating world In fantasy, for me this is what s most important the hypnotism of being transported somewhere completely different Lord of Lies is exciting, clever and deeply haunting, causing us to question what really matters in life As well as fantastic action scenes, Lord of Lies is surprisingly tender at times, showing Bowring s ability to weave a tale that appeals to all the senses A master storyteller.

    13. Katharine is a judge for the Sara Douglass Book Series Award This entry is the personal opinion of Katharine herself, and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of any judging panel, the judging coordinator or the Aurealis Awards management team I won t be recording my thoughts if I choose to here until after the AA are over.

    14. Love this series Am a bit over long series so this was just the right length Sam Bowring has this amazing ability to make you fall in love with all his characters even the bad guys I love how his hero s are real people, they have flaws imperfections are not impossibly good I finished both books in well under a week Awesome read from start to finish

    15. Das Buch hat mir wirklich sehr gut gefallen Die Magie mit F den darzustellen finde ich sehr gelungen und das Ende hat die Geschichte f r mich perfekt gemacht Insgesamt kam in dem Buch nie Langeweile auf und ich empfehle es jedem der auf Fantasy steht

    16. Can t remember exactly what I said about the first book except that it was easy to read and reasonably engaging The same certainly goes for the second Although I or less saw the conclusion coming, last minute plot twist and all, I still appreciated the way it was all executed.

    17. Pretty good for light read It is a good break from my recent poor run with fantasy I am excted to read the Broken Well Trilogy, the teaser was exciting.

    18. A worthy finish to a great story, with interesting twists and grand battles leading to a satisfying conclusion.

    19. Good, but not great Kept me reading to find out what happened in the end, so job well done on that score.
