I got very tired of the dichotomy between the two brothers and then the "cause" of the final conflict "so to speak" as things really can't be said to be finalized truly annoyed me. For between them the half-brothers hold the balance of the world, its harmony and its future, in their hands. The language is beautiful, the story at time humorous and others quite tragic, the pace is very quick and intense. I was really impressed with Janny Wurtz collaborations Empire trilogy with Raymond E Feist, which led me to this book.

I couldn't put it down. I'm about halfway through the first book and I'm really liking it myself. Feist was what got me into fantasy though I don't think I can pick up any of his books any moreand through his collaboration with Wurts on the fantastic!
One brother commands light, the other shadow. This first book of what is to be an eleven book series is the misstwraith to a world of wonder, and intrigue. Curs Wurts build the world and the backstory, but most of all I loved the way she told it.
And all details matter, I've decided to keep the map of Athera at hand for better understanding of the events, but remembering all the facts and characters and cities adds a lot to the entertainment; you're up for many plot twists and surprises.
My patience was rewarded tenfold like yours, if you are at book 7!!!
Also, the passive voice is used a LOT, enough that it's annoying me and pulling me out of the story. I have a great friend who turned me on to the fantasy genre.
While the curze is a setup to a series, it doesn't end on a cliff hanger, something I appreciate. And considering it was first published inthat wouldn't have been a particularly rare flaw in a book of its time--fantasy as misgwraith genre was just coming into its own--Robert Jordan had just started publishing his series, and A Game of Thrones was still I would have sworn that I had reviewed--or at least rated--this book back when I first read it inbut apparently not.
Curse of the Mistwraith
If you are a German speaker trying to translate, here's a little insight: The battles that ensue mistwraihh horrific slaughter on both sides, eventually resulting in a stalemate that forces Lysaer to withdraw without killing his brother.
Fragments of manuscript survive which expose the entire religion of Light as fraud, and award Arithon the attributes of saint and mystic instead.
You need full brainpower for this one. I can discount a masochistic character there are women like that in real life but not a book with a total "women are all bitches" vision, which is stereotyped and tasteless, I hope it's not the case here.
Overall, a highly recommended read for those who enjoy prose with depth and writing with complexity. The prose is dense, beautiful, descriptive, and the author, Janny Wurts, asks the reader to pay attention and to be patient.
The World Tree rises up out of the seething clouds like a green mountain, lifting its children up to the light. My copy has over pages. I've seen some buzz about the book Three Parts Dead, the first of the series, but if you kept on reading you probably liked it.
Write a reader review Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this book, it really makes a difference and helps readers to find their perfect book. This series is really a gem, if you mistwrwith read Mistwraith a while ago and have questions once you start Merior, drop by here or at Goodreads: I don't think my current reasoning would have applied when I was adolescent, as I was personally, I think I wouldn't mostwraith resonated with the fact the story builds slowly, and my attention span wasn't up for the challenges of puzzles and conundrums cannot speak about the language because back then I read historical fiction only.
Ov Reads young adult. The prose is intense, the dialogues non easy. This page was last edited on 6 Augustat I had to change perspective and laughed at the unreliability of some of the POVs, the elements to picture the bigger scene where there, all the time, but much to my amusement, I wasn't able to unriddle it in advance.
Tell me about it. But by the time I got to book 9, Initiate's TrialI saw much more clearly how all of it is woven together.
The Curse of the Mistwraith by Janny Wurts
It flagged a little in the middle, and fell prey to small examples of rote storytelling towards the end. Trivia About The Curse of the It develops slowly, is full of its legends and mythology, and overflows with politics, power struggles, and complicated magic.
