Inhaltsangabe zu „The Wheel of Osheim (Red Queen's War)“ von MARK LAWRENCE

From the critically-acclaimed author of PRINCE OF FOOLS comes the third volume of the brilliant new epic fantasy series, THE RED QUEEN'S WAR. All the horrors of Hell stand between Snorri Ver Snagason and the rescue of his family, if indeed the dead can be rescued. For Jalan Kendeth getting back out alive and with Loki's Key is all that matters. Loki's creation can open any lock, any door, and it may also be the key to Jal's fortune back in the living world. Jal plans to return to the three Ws that have been the core of his idle and debauched life: wine, women, and wagering. Fate however has other, larger, plans...The Wheel of Osheim is turning ever faster and it will crack the world unless it's stopped. When the end of all things looms, and there's nowhere to run, even the worst coward must find new answers. Jal and Snorri face many dangers - from the corpse-hordes of the Dead King to the many mirrors of the Lady Blue; but in the end, fast or slow, the Wheel of Osheim will exert its power. In the end it's win or die.

Großartiges Finale eines großartigen Fantasyabenteuers!

    The Wheel of Osheim (Red Queen's War)

    Sometimes the coward´s choice aligns with that of the hero.Just let me express at first, my undying love for abrupt story starts. Let me also swear fealty to all settings sandy, dessert and oriental. Finally, let me compare the joy of Jalan´s boat trip back home to a glass of sizzling champagne. It was just that sparkling. Writing, world building blah- all said and done, still perfect. Moving on to the new things I have to say Lisa DeVeer is the girl you´d imagine Jalan to match with. Why put up with any of his antics when you have the power of slapping him and still get that look from him? Go Lisa! The world would be a better place with more couples like them. The final featured the great three:epic battle, even more epic battle and drama, of course. Good thing that a dose of hilarious weirdness counteracted the dramatic events, which oozed slight tear shed and heartbreaking sadness. We have to thank Count Isen´s ridiculous need for „honor“ and Jalan´s indifference against dignity for that one. I loved the constellation of the setting- the different stops of Jalan´s journey with the glowing highlight of Vermillion. I also loved the constellation of companions who made every part of the trip a different story. They all round up the plot and Jalan himself perfectly. In the end, it was a great final.
