    One Reply to “The Price of Blood and Honor”

    1. This is a truly great book. It's all about magic and honor and a society built out of nothingness. Based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, you have a powerful sorcerer that makes humans out of animals and begins his own kingdom. You have a daughter created out of mud. You have elemental creatures out of Earth and Air and a spoiled brat of a sorcerer son that resents his new mud sister and has a dark history of his own.The story is seen through the eyes of Freya, Prospero's daughter, who has to becom [...]

    2. It didn't quite meet the expectations set by A Sorcerer and a Gentleman. The characterization rang a bit false. Freia endures trauma and misery and comes off as the designated victim of the piece, and Dewar has an abrupt change of character which unfortunately rids him of his most interesting qualities: his decadence and borderline amoral behavior. Meanwhile, the sorcerer Odile appears on scene for the first time, after much suspense, and she is so cartoonishly villainous that it's hard to under [...]

    3. The weakest and sadly the last of the Argylle books. Elizabeth Willey seems to have vanished after writing it. It resolves many, but not all, of the subplots raised in A Sorcerer and A Gentleman. This book is darker - maybe "dour" is a better word - and as it spends much time dealing with the glacial pace of Freia's recuperation after the travails of the previous book, things slow to a snail's pace at its midpoint and never really pick up. The denouement is over in a heartbeat, quite anti-climac [...]

    4. The conclusion to the prequel started in A Sorcerer and a Gentleman, we get the conclusion to Prospero's rebellion, daughter Freia's misadventures, son Dewar's meddling and redemption, and what appears to be the beginning of Lord Marshal Gaston and Freia's relationship.As I've said before, the Argylle trilogy is a fascinating read. Willey's flowing language makes Shakespeare's characters step right out of the pages. The saddest thing is that, to my knowledge, Willey never wrote anything else aft [...]

    5. A sorcerer is defeated in combat and he and his children have to deal with the consequences of his loss.This book's setup is interesting enough, and the events in the beginning of the book made me want to find out more about what happens to the characters but the writing is so purple and overblown that I quickly found myself skimming through long stretches of decription to see if I could find the interesting bits. It wasn't long before I decided that wading through the prose was more trouble tha [...]

    6. Second half of the prequel toA Well-Favored Man begun inA Sorcerer and a Gentleman (split into two volumes by the publisher). Story does explain a few things from Man (I always got creepy incestuous vibes from Freia and Dewar's relationship, for example), but basically just trails off without resolving major plot points.

    7. I first read this book when i was 13. I liked it, but i didnt fully understand the plot nor how the characters interacted (probly cause i was only 13). Im 24 now and in the process of re-reading it.

    8. The characterization of Freia left much to be desired, but it was nice to see more of Gaston here.

    9. I wound up loving this series, but there is no clear resolution with this book, which made me wonder if Ms. Wiley has more to come? Reminded me of Ellen Kushner's Swordspoint series.
