Product description

Product Description

Once a princess of Leithe, Lorelei was exiled from her homeland and led to the city of Dunvarak in the tundra of Rimian. The people of Dunvarak call her Light of Madra, and nearly every one of them has a story about the white hand of light who saved them from death during the War of Silence.

She is their savior, and being a savior is no small task.

Charged with retrieving the fractured horns of the U’lfer god, Llorveth, from a long-dead dragon’s treasure hoard in the belly of Great Sorrow’s Peak, the half-bred U’lfer believe with the horns in hand they will finally be able to embrace the dormant wolf, and rise to stand beside their full-blooded brethren in the coming war with men.

But there is more to Lorelei’s plight than simply retrieving the mystical horns of a silent god. She and her companions, Finn, an U’lfer warrior she shares a mate bond with, and a half-Alvarii mage named Brendolowyn, have made this journey before, and unless they can figure out where they went wrong in past cycles, time threatens to repeat itself for eternity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! 11 October 2014
By Denise - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I couldn't put the book down, nor did I want too. This is high fantasy at its finest; perilous journey, friends who would become foe, and the big reveal that the hero may or may not like but has to suck it up and do the thing anyway.

Because, you know, fantasy rules and all that.

The great thing about the Serpent of Time series is Jennifer's deft way of stringing all of the high fantasy elements together in a way that makes the reader want more. Nowhere in the book do elements come out of left field to take the reader by surprise or make them groan. And, though Lorelei is still a spoiled brat, she's growing up and it shows, making her a character you don't want to throttle as badly as you did before.

The strength of the book lies in character development. While there is no shortage of glorious world building and high stakes, the real page turner is finding out what happens to your favourite characters. And, like any good series, more questions are asked then they are answered.

I'm a sucker for romance. I'm also a sucker for adventure with grand stakes and battles. This book has all of them. I wait in anxious anticipation for the third book.

I have to know what happens.

Have. To.

So, instead of spending that $5 on that tragic love affair a Starbucks coffee bean has between syrup and milk, do yourself a favour and pick this book up.
4.0 out of 5 stars Better than book 1! 5 August 2015

Sorrow's Peak picks up right where Edgelanders left off, so it's a pleasant, pretty much nonexistent segue into the continuing story. I was treated immediately to more of the character I really want to know more about, Trystay, but it was brief. And I didn't get to see him again until the epilogue, but he is an antagonist, so I suppose it's not surprising. He's not even really the main conflict in this novel, but it is good to see what he's up to.

My intrigue with Trystay doesn't mean I'm not interested in our protagonist team. Lorelei is evolving, though I'd like to see her grow more quickly. She seems so resistant to change, but not intentionally. In some ways, the world is pushing her along, and she's helpless to stop it. It does sometimes make her come across as whiny, and I want to slap her sometimes, but it's hard to hate her. She's not my favorite protagonist ever, but her chemistry with her teammates makes up for a lot of frustration I have at her. I think if the book were more exclusively in her POV, I wouldn't be able to stand it.

Bren and Finn make the story in a lot of ways. Their bickering, their turmoil, seems more real than Lorelei's does, at least to me. Finn's continued pining after Lorelei, along with Bren's, get annoying. A lot. But it does have a little more purpose now, as they're really set against each other with the whole "only two will return" thing. This really comes to a crux with Bren, and I enjoyed the tension there.

Then there's the side plot, which is headed by my favorite character, Vilnjar. I want more of him. I love that his story arc has diverged from the main story, and I'm eager to see what becomes of him in book three. Yes, I'm curious to see what becomes of everyone, but his story arc appeals to me more than the main one does. That's just personal preference and has nothing to do with the writing quality or plot quality. That is purely opinion.

I wasn't as enthralled with this book as I was with the first's not bad but it took me a week to read. I usually read about 5-6 books a week. This is the reason I don't usually continue reading a series after book one....R A Salvatore was the exception, I loved his dark elf series.....

A great installment and a fulfilling continuing story of some very cool fantasy characters. Melzer is a fantastic author. The intrinsic way that the characters evolve and prepare and realize themselves are what keeps me coming back to these books. If you like fantasy with depth and conviction, you would like this series. Hurry up on the next one, Melzer!

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic tail if ever there was one. 14 July 2015
By Ed Boggess - Published on

We follow Lorelei, The Light of Madra, as she follows her fate. She is torn between the love of two and the doubts of prophecy. How can she be who the say she is? Can she ever accept her inner wolf? I will need to wait for the next volume, alas. And so will you! A great epic tail.
