[[ Download Epub ]] Û Underlord à A Tournament Approaches All Around The World, Great Clans And Sects Prepare Their Disciples To Fight Against One Another In A Competition Of Young Underlords Even The Blackflame Empire Is Drawn In, But Their Youth Are Not Strong Enough To Compete Yet Unbelievable I thought for sure that Will Wight wouldn t be able to top Ghostwater I was wrong He surpassed my wildest dreams with Underlord It was, in short, perfection As the title implies, Lindon continues to advance, though it s not easy More than that, thanks to an expertly written prologue and epilogue, we get a glimpse of the larger world as Suriel s job just got a lot harder And even better, we got a taste of what has happened to Lindon s family after he left My only regret is that I read it so fast, and now I will suffer until Uncrowned is published. Such insane power Such insane fun That, in a nutshell, is the Cradle series, and Underlord is its current pinnacle.Underlord was everything that its title promised adoring fans including yours truly , and so much The Prologue was so ridiculously epic it gave me goosebumps, and all the awesomeness that was the Cradle series came crashing down on me again I tried to prolong the enjoyment by keeping myself occupied with things to do, to avoid finishing the book too quickly Alas, it barely lasted 36 hours from the time I received the download from my pre order This was the first time I had to wait for a Cradle book release and the experience of coming back to the world, and its characters felt wonderful On hindsight, I believed that I might not have done sufficient justice to the previous five books which I ve finished reading on a frantic binge Having some time to absorb and digest each book fully could have made the initial read even better Sidenote I ve upgraded Blackflame to 5 stars.In each book thus far, Will Wight kept upping the stakes in line with the power advancements or upgrades in the sacred arts The rank of Underlord transcends beyond Truegold on a whole new level of mastery altogether Given this, the final step to becoming an Underlord cannot be achieved through hard training and spirit enhancing elixirs alone It comes from something even profound and what ensued in this book hence was a level of character development that sealed my absolute investment for all the main characters Lindon is the main protagonist from the very beginning, but it took me quite some time to thoroughly warm up to him I m so glad that I genuinely enjoy his story now a part of this was primarily nurtured by his relationship with his co mentor, Orthos Yerin remained as badass as ever, and I loved the touch of vulnerability which emerged from her character arc in this book Meanwhile, Mercy finally had her backstory fleshed out, and it was fascinating My latest favourite character had to be Dross a unique entity that Lindon stumbled upon in Ghostwater, which turned out to be instrumental to Lindon s progress Dross injected even humour into the story, which previously was almost monopolised by the melodramatic and irrepressible Eithan, who s still a firm favourite Oh, and how can I not mention the adorable Little Blue I cannot commend Wight enough for the worldbuilding and magic system he created for Cradle While the story primarily took place in the world of Cradle, we get epic accounts of what was happening in the cosmos as supreme beings of power battle across the planets and stars Within Cradle itself, one could appreciate the size and complexity of the world, with its many political factions, empires, clans and cults, all which some way or another were dictated by the most powerful sacred artists in the world, the Monarchs In the many years of reading epic fantasy, I have had my exposure to extraordinary sorcerous powers, but I have yet to come across one so well conceived as a magic cum martial arts system This statement excludes anime manga and gaming since I cannot speak with any authority in this arena The power of the sacred arts is unapologetically insane But at the same time, there are also distinct rules behind these arts I was astounded with the many different paths and techniques that the author managed to conjure Don t forget, each Path has its Striker, Enforcer, Ruler and Forger techniques, and each upgrade in rank unlocks even techniques available to the sacred artist And then, there are natural treasures as well as Soulsmithed constructs made from Remnants and bindings which harness vital aura It was ingenious madness, and I had mad fun reading it Another sidenote It could be just me being a mega fan of Brandon Sanderson, I can t help noticing several nods to The Stormlight Archive in this novel. The ending of each Cradle book always alluded to an even epic instalment to come, and Underlord was no exception Its Epilogue is the best in the series so far in building up for the next book, which is titled Uncrowned What does differentiate Underlord from most of its predecessors was that it has the most well balanced narrative Amazing action scenes are a given, but we also get quiet contemplative moments between the characters And while I laughed quite lot throughout the book, I also teared up during a particularly poignant scene By now, I ve known and accepted that there will be many books on the horizon to complete the arc that Lindon s journey will take him, especially with Eithan s grand plan in mind I was informed that Wight mentioned twelve books in total Strangely though, I am excited with this prospect, as I really cannot get enough of this series The author had been able to churn out the Cradle books regularly I surmised that he was able to do this by making each book relatively short by fantasy standards , and just enough to wrap up the requisite plotline to ensure consistent progression and advancement for our characters to get the story to where it needs to be for a resoundingly epic conclusion.If what I ve described fit your idea of a great read, I highly recommend this series Even though it seemed like we re only halfway through, these books were quite short and so fun that rereading wouldn t be a chore At least, it won t be for me What I am suggesting is don t wait to start Cradle because you are missing out on some seriously cool and awesome entertainment.You can purchase the book from US You can also find this, and my other reviews at Novel Notions. The name of this book and what it suggests is killing me with anticipation.After reading Honestly I m relieved I was worried that something would go wrong and I wouldn t like it, but it s even better than I thought it would be I m not going to do a real review, but I might after rereading it a few times All the stuff below will be random thoughts and stream of consciousness stuff Don t expect quality.Questions view spoiler Are Jai Long and his sister at the Sacred Valley yet I don t think the epilogue said anything about that Answer Last fall, two young outsiders had torn through the Heaven s Glory School, breaking their way into Sacred Valley They were still at large somewhere, hiding just as she was Also, it probably doesn t make sense for Lindon to go back home until at least after the tournament But I really want to see his family hometown s reaction to the fact that he could easily conquer the entire Valley To answer my own question, The tournament does not allow anyone below or above Underlord , Charity said though advancements during competition are allowed All competitors must be younger than 35 Now I wonder how likely it is that Lindon will advance during the competition If he s going to spend a few months training with the Akura s he ll probably be at least halfway to Overlord by the time the tournament starts.Also, the next book or two has a great setup to be character driven rather than advancement driven Yeren being separated from Lindon AGAIN after they ve made some relatively big strides in their relationship is killer I also really want to see how Lindon stacks up to Jai Long and Eithan AND Naru Gwei now It would be hilarious if he could kick Naru Gwei s ass He s always punched above his weight class He spent most of this book crushing Truegolds and standing against Underlords Could he at least almost fight an Overlord now What s Orthos up to We can assume he ll start training Lindon s sister, but what else And finally, what kind of terrible, agonizing, wonderful development will Lindon go through under his revenge training with the Akura s hide spoiler Shut up and take my
