I pretty much read this book in one day flat Towards the end of the second book the storyline really picks up, and then this whole third book is literally unputdownable I m just so impressed with the whole storyline how different people s stories overlap and intertwine to combine into this really rich and complex narrative Most of the characters were really well fleshed out and believable Some of the points of view are interesting than others personally I always enjoyed the bits with Auraya, Em [...]
5 immortal stars Every time I read this series it just gets even enjoyable After 10 years it s still my favourite fantasy series of all time.
I would have given this stars if I could but alas I started reading this book on 5pm Thursday 15th Sept 2011 and finished at 6am Friday 16th Sept 2011 then put it down took a 5mins respite, got up drank one coffee and went about my day.If there s one thing I can say about AoF, its damningly original, easy to sink into and don t let up until the last page of the trilogy I have personally never read any other of Trudi work but that s is about to change I m very surprise at how easily I found mys [...]
This review has previously been posted at Another World Book Blog It s fair to say that the first two books of The Age Of The Five Trilogy were underwhelming to me In spite of this I held on to the hope that history would repeat itself that the third instalment of this Trudi Canavan trilogy would blow me away in the same manner as book three of The Black Magician Trilogy, had done Regrettably, my hope was misplaced Not only is Voice Of The Gods not in the same league as, The High Lord, it is als [...]
I feel conflicted In the beginning of this novel or like the first half of it I thought that the writer had finally started getting somewhere and I actually was enjoying it then the first two novels With the last, say, 200 pages though, I wasn t feeling enjoyment as much as frustration The fact of the matter is one of the characters is so moronic in that part you want to throw the book across the room It doesn t help that she keeps going over a question to which you ve possibly figured out the [...]
Why oh why did it take Auraya so long to wake up and figure things out, it is rare that i figure things out before the main character as usually i am so emmersed in the story that i just take it as it comes It was slightly annoying that she was so slow.Other than that this was a great end to the trilogy, although when i first started reading this i thought it was going to be a series of five books It was quite an easy read and i was able to emmerse myself in the book fairly easily.If you have re [...]
Caution Spoilers Omg Best book in the series by far, but it had a crap ending I mean, i wanna know if Auraya and Mirar got back together, how the world survived without the gods, what happened to everyone AHH But i asked the author if she s writing another and she said no Ah well, atleast it ended kinda well But still, too abrupt with too much info left out.This was the only book in the series that i actually looked forward to reading, i was really getting into it and couldnt wait to see what wa [...]
I pushed through today so I could finish this Nothing really happened until the last 200 pages and hooollyyy shit the last 50 pages I was so close to believing this would turn out to be bad, but it took a massive turn.I absolutely love the way Canavan explores the uses and ways of magic in all her books.
I haven t really said much about these Age of the Five books so far, mostly because I wanted to wait until I reached the end of the trilogy before making a judgement I enjoyed the plot of these books, and really appreciate how your opinion on the different characters religions societies etc change throughout One of the things I found irritating was the constantly shifting narrative 5 pages would be dedicated to Auraya, then the next 5 to Mirar, then the next 5 to Emerahl, then the next five to D [...]
I have enjoyed all of the books written by this author and once again this book achieved the same high standard You either enjoy this genre or you do not Pure escapism This book was the last of the Age of 5 trilogy and all of the loose ends were skilfully dealt with However, I had guessed the main twist regarding the Gods well before the end of the book I will not spoil this aspect for any other readers This did not detract my enjoyment of the book, which I found to be the usual page turner with [...]

Inesperado Apesar de se algumas situa es reveladas neste terceiro livro da trilogia, a verdade que algumas das revela es s o surpreendentes, tal como a forma como se chega l.Confesso e sem querer ser spolier que a vis o dos Deuses que A Idade dos Cinco nos traz algo semelhante com a minha Mas Trudi Canavan vai mais longe nessa vis o e mostra como os mortais e imortais se podem revoltar contra os Deuses, tomando as r deas do seu pr prio destino.Fiquei, mais uma vez, encantada com esta autora Uma [...]
Globally, I enjoyed reading these books While it took me time to get interested in the story due to a start that I found slow, it became much interesting in the 2nd book I liked most point of view characters, how the world was built, the fact that things are rarely what they initially seem to be What I liked less was that I found the ending to be a little bit rushed, what happens in the 3rd part of the 3rd book could have filled an entire book in itself It will be hard to discuss with details [...]
This trilogy was really really good I did enjoy it even than the black magician trilogy and found the ending much satisfying.I m mildly disappointed though because it had the potential to be a super awesome 5 star book If Trudi had just built up a little bit tension before the climax it would have got there, but the ending kind of rushed by.The characters were so well portrayed and varied, and many of them were lovable and understandable, even when they were enemies of each other Auraya was a [...]
finally after than I year, I have finally acquired a copy of the book and as expected I LOVED IT I am now officially TRUDI CANAVAN s fan Ever since I started reading her black magician s trilogy i have been looking forward for i wasn t disappointed.The Age of Five trilogy was one of the best books series that I have read It has me mesmerized from start to finish I fell in love with the main character Auraya and Mirar althought I would have thought that Trudi will make the epilogue about them, [...]
started 07 10 2009This was a fantastic conclusion to a very good trilogy I d figured out most of the ending before I got to the second book, but I loved the interaction between the characters and the whole character build up Canavan has a style of writing that really appeals and keeps you wanting to turn pages and finish the novel My only problem was that I was looking for the next chapter right up until the last page and found I was disappointed there was no .
The conclusion of the trilogy is surprising and satisfying That is why I like this series, there is a satisfying ending which leaves you like a full meal but you like it so much you still want Trudi knows how to make her trilogies, I just hope she comes out with new ones soon.
Finally i ve finished it Basically the same complaints that I had with the other two books Majority of characters were boring and the story was so so slow and the ending was so abrupt The magician trilogy is better Also not the best fantasy out there but much nicer to read.
I enjoyed the entire Age of Five trilogy but found that this final installment was a tad too predictable I could see the end coming at the end of Book 2.I did enjoy this book but would like to see stories about The Wilds , they are what make the books intriguing.
Been years and years since I read this, but I still remember the big reveal at the end It was brilliant, well executed, and brought a whole different meaning to the interactions characters had had since book 1
WOW what a story I loved this last book of the trilogy, although the last 3 pages I was a bit hmmmm naaaww I found myself swept up in all the characters The good the bad and the downright evil Filled with hope, laughter , tears , agony and wonder A definite must read
Luv the endingAuraya and the dreamweaver plus other wilds were able to capture the gods and cornered them in a void before finally the gods destroy themselves
at the start it felt like it was another why am i bothering book however at the end i was really glad i kept reading there was a point to the story line nicely written
Increible, pico, no me lo esperaba para nada Trudi se sobrepasa m s con cada libro
3.5 out of 5 stars
Well I really don t remember much of this book do I Anyone who knows this story well and was reading my reviews these last few days must have been laughing their heads off I totally mixed up the villain didn t I So This is a very good ending to the Age of the Five trilogy During the previous two books I did think to myself a couple of times that it would be awesome to get a prequel to find out how The Gull became The Gull, or Mirar found his powers, met Emerahl, then came to fall out with the go [...]
The last book of this series leaves me conflicted.On the one hand it s probably the best of the 3 books because a lot of things are explained and we see how Auraya changes slowly but surely because of the way how she is being treated, on the other hand in some way it s also the worst.In my opinion the focus that is layed here on the voices of the gods Pentadrian side is too much, we didn t learn much about them in the first two books and now they get way too much attention Which isn t a bad thin [...]
I really enjoyed reading this book, though it felt slow at times, as I was impatient to see how it would all play out As the last book in the series, we get a lot of revelations in this book some I suspected before having finished the first book, others were surprising I enjoyed the continued character development in this book, and I especially love all the wilds They are truly interesting characters that I would love to learn even about The religion is, as it has been throughout the series, t [...]
I have finished re reading this series, and I have to be honest It is not as good as the Magician s guild was I wanted it to be because I love the premise, but it just felt off And then the last three chapters were where the most action was At one point it felt really tense and then I realized I didn t have much book left to finish, and I wondered how all the plotlines would resolve in that small amount of space It was so short that it felt off, and rushed and let s cram as much story onto these [...]
I enjoyed the first book in this series and the second book was pretty good, but this book was a little bit of a let down I did enjoy it at the beginning, but towards the end I just had enough I could see what was going to happen about 150 p.g before it even happened and I got frustrated at the main characters for not getting it too I do wish that the story carried on just a little at the end since it s been 50 years since the events happened Just so that we know what happens with all the chara [...]
