Review: Legacy of Kings - Celia Friedman


The young peasant woman Kamala has proven strong and determined enough to claim the most powerful Magister sorcery for herself-but now the Magisters hunt her for killing one of their own. Her only hope of survival lies in the northern Protectorates, where spells are warped by a curse called the Wrath that even the Magisters fear. Originally intended to protect the lands of men from creatures known only as souleaters, the Wrath appears to be weakening-and the threat of this ancient enemy is once more falling across the land.


My thoughts:
I fiiiiinally learnt what Colivar had been hiding. Thanks a lot Colivar, you could have told us before...haha, I love him.

Right, the beginning was a bit confusing and jumpy but then it got better. Colivar is thinking about saving the world. Salvatore is the same religious ass as always, queen Gwen kicks some serious butt, Kalima is conspiring with Colivar and the witch queen is being a real witch.

The whole book is leading up to the final battle and the whole what are magisters thing. There will be battles, revelations and oh who cares, I just wanted to read about Colivar. Ever since they killed A in book 1 Colivar was all I cared for ;)

Conclusion:
A good end to this series.
