    1. This is a difficult one for me I definitely enjoyed the plot, the characters and to a certain extend, the conclusion I think what keeps me from rating this set higher than 3 stars was the writing style This is a very personal thing I find Tolkien a hard read for the same reason, so he s in good company , but I just didn t fall in love with the way he told the story.His descriptions were sometimes quite extraordinary and I found myself so astonished at his choice of phrase that I found it detrime [...]

    2. Said simply I really enjoyed the book The ending wasn t a everyone lives happily ever after , which was a very big surprise It was very sad and made me think about how all the events tied in not giving too much away, the book is covered in decisions upon decisions of the numerous characters, and the way everything ties into each other at the end is incredible.It made me question what was right, what was wrong, who was evil, who was good There is no bad side and good side , where the good side al [...]

    3. My favorite book of the series I still found some characters frustrating and self centered, but I still enjoyed it.

    4. I have postponed reading this final book for years It s the final book in the series and the whole series was really hard to trudge through The only reason I finished them is because they ve been sitting on my shelves for years and I was determined to finish it However, I wish I hadn t bothered The ending was very anti climatic Everything was solved but in a weird way Irvine really dragged the ending out too much and just didn t execute the ending well All four books were only mediocre I ve read [...]

    5. Finally I m exhausted What a read On the other had, I did not want it to end I haven t read any books that have kept me as engrossed as The View from the Mirror quartet for a long time I recommend this series of books whole heartedly I don t know anything about writing book reviews, all I know is what I like I never would have thought that I would have bought books in this category but I m glad I did I will certainly be reading of Ian Irvine s books

    6. The pacing issues and relatively thin plot in the prior volume, Dark is the Moon, put me off reading The Way Between the Worlds for almost two years At one point, I was considering leaving the series unfinished, but I am a completionist and that just wouldn t do And as it turns out, I liked this book Irvine pulls together an incredible number of plot threads and manages to bring them to a resolution that satisfactorily answered all my questions This may sound like damning with faint praise, and [...]

    7. Boy, these books took a long time to read This final instalment tied up all the Greek tragedy storylines, everyone got their just deserts The View from the Mirror quartet is an ambitious undertaking, it imagines unique races with long histories and lots of debts to repay Having read the Well of the Worlds series first, it feels like Irvine recycles a lot of his characters under different names The characters never seem quite real to me, but that didn t diminish my enjoyment of the novels.

    9. I really hoped that I would give this book a higher rating, as it is a series conclusion, but no, this was as much average as the rest I am surprised I read all four books I gave it three stars only because I appreciated the worldbuilding However action and the relationships of the characters are not the strong side of this series Honestly it was quite boring and that is why I am not gonna read anything from this author for a long long time Maybe in a distant future, sorry Mr Irvine

    10. I quite enjoyed this series which was different from the usual Lord of the Rings fantasy novel and would highly recommend it to lovers of fantasy literatureere is a bit of sci fi to this tale of various human species stuck on one world, some of whom wish to return to their own The machinations of the 2 groups who want to return to their home worlds are sometimes hilarious despite the fact that I doubt they were meant to be But Irving does write a bit tongue in cheek so perhaps they were His desc [...]

    11. A very good ending to a good series Mostly a happy ending though, which I wasn t expecting seeing as I accidentally read the second series set in the same world the Geomancer series first.So why only four stars Because I missed that intangible something, a bit of subtlety, a bit of empathy, a bit of eloquence You could say that it s my bias as a female reader against a male author but I don t think so, there are plenty of male authors who absolutely master the impersonal personal touch It was ha [...]

    12. The series is finally over and I am rather unsure as how to rate the overall experience.Throughout most of the series, I felt like there was way too much going on, and it felt the same through this book Most of these books probably could have been shortened by 200 pages, and reduced some of the lengthy plot and backstory in order to make it feel less like swimming through mud.The ending of this book was rather shocking usually I enjoy a different, rather sad ending, but in a way it also felt lik [...]

    13. This book concludes the tale of Karan, Llian, the Mirror and all who have been swept up by the events And what a series it has been, friends and enemies, love and betrayal, survival and death The imagination of Ian Irvine is really a thing to celebrate.The plotling has throughout the whole series been original and ever changing, this has not changed The reader can be sure of nothing until those two amazing words The End stops it all Until then everything is in flux and the unsuspecting reader ca [...]

    14. I love the way Ian Irvine manages to plan his twists from the beginning of the series, sort of the way J.K Rowling does, but Irvine is a much convincing and talented author.I also love how it s not happily ever after for everyone, that the story manages to have a streak or realism in the fantasy based novel.Peace out

    15. A entertaining, satisfying resolution to the epic View from the Mirror series I particularly liked that this novel had a lot of focus on creating shades of grey in the morality of the protagonists and antagonists Some of the character development was a bit on the predictable side, but there is definitely interest in this plot than your average good vs evil fantasy.

    16. This series is a worthwhile addition to any fantasy collection Loved the absence of gender bias, and thought that the development of the worlds was intriguing However, by the fourth book, I found the narrative had palled Maybe I should not have read the books one after the other

    18. Dit laatste deel van de serie is te veel van hetzelfde om nog spannend en vernieuwend te zijn Een 6 is niet meer dan ik kan geven Wel een beetje jammer, maar ik wilde wel weten hoe het nu af zou lopen met Karan en Llian Weer een serie van de TBR lijst af.
