The stunning conclusion to Karen Miller’s Godspeaker trilogy

In Ethrea, Rhian sits upon a precarious throne. Defiant dukes who won’t accept her rule threaten the stability of her kingdom. Dexterity has been banished from her court in disgrace. The blue-haired slave Zandakar, the man she thought was her friend, has been revealed as the son of a woman sworn to destroy her world. And Rhian’s husband, King Alasdair, is unsure of her love.

The trading nations refuse to believe Mijak is a threat and promise reprisals if she dares protect her realm. Only Emperor Han of mysterious Tzhung-tzhungchai knows that the danger from Mijak is real.

But is he an ally or an enemy in disguise? As she struggles to learn the truth, and keep her embattled crown, the murderous warhost of Mijak advances.

    " I think I read this book only for completeness' sake. Empress was promising but after Riven Kingdom I sort of lost hope. There was at least two months before I could pick up and force my way through this book. I honestly don't know why I did. I guess to justify for sure that this series went completely off the rails. "

    " What a struggle this book was. It can be summed up easily. Rhian talks about war and argues with a bunch of people, then there is a bit of fighting. I've never read another book where court politics irritated me so much. Everyone bickers and Rhian yells at them. I guess it's because most other books have rulers that actually command respect, instead of demand it at the top of their lungs and shake a fist. I understand that not everyone likes Rhian and acknowledges her fully, but I got tired of the constant bickering that never moved forward. The first 600 pages of the book felt pointless, nothing happened other than some discussion and maybe one semi important event. None of the characters are complex or interesting, not even Zandakar. Rhian's marriage isn't interesting to read either. I stuck in there because I loved empress so much, but I honestly think that Riven Kingdom and Hammer of God were a waste of my time, and Empress would be better stand alone. Why can't evil triumph over good for once? Once again, the safe road was taken, in more ways than one. "

    " I haven't finished it. Which is exactly why I gave it 1 stars. I became so angry in the middle of the book because of the SAME argument, "Oh Im a queen and me and my husband are having issues regarding everything about that." I dropped the book because it was to much. I wanted to scream, "I don't care anymore, for the love of cupcakes! Get over yourself, grow a sack, and stop crying about everything!" The book lost intensity and I decided I was done with the characters and the book. I'll finish it one day because It's on the shelf but, I'm still a little angry. "

    " Can't decide on this series what I think. Writing is ... ... Good, but there are pieces that could be left out without hurting the story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Averill Erin | 11/9/2013

    " Of the three, the way my second favorite. Got to be frustratingly Christian, and still doesn't compare to Kingmaker, Kingbreaker, butthe characters are marvelous and it was worth the read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Commanderd | 10/4/2013

    " Honestly, a weak ending in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 9/2/2013

    " Another page turner from Karen Miller "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vernon Stevens | 9/1/2013

    " I really enjoyed this last book in the Godspeaker Trilogy. I especially liked the good beliefs vs bad beliefs debate running through the trilogy, but especially this last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 5/6/2012

    " This was a satisfying conclusion to this rousing trilogy. While at times the books seemed too long I very much enjoyed all of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan Frankel | 2/4/2012

    " Decent ending to the trilogy. Miller managed to tie in most of the major storylines and characters. The major complaint would be the rushed feeling in the end...so much time was spent building up to the climax and then it was just fell a little short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal | 1/16/2012

    " (see review for Book 1: The Empress) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rawlins | 8/31/2011

    " Not as good as the first and second in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vincent | 7/14/2011

    " meh. I wanted it to be more. This was sort of weak for a final climactic book of a trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marty Dearie | 4/19/2011

    " Decent conclusion to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/3/2010

    " I would have rated it 4 1/2 stars if I could. The pace is relentless, the terror palpable, the characters completely believable.

    I have only one quibble about what one character did at the end of the book, but it's a minor thing. I highly recommend this series to everyone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 8/1/2010

    " This was a really long story. Didn't like that Zandakar's father dies. Hekat was plain crazy. It was a very political series. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 7/26/2010

    " A little beyond adequate, but still leaves a lot of unanswered plot holes in this unorthodox "trilogy."
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marta | 6/28/2010

    " It was a great ending to the trilogy, I would definetly recommend the whole series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 1/28/2010

    " I read most of this book in one sitting. This is the second series by Karen Miller that I've read, and I love her characters - I can't help getting attached to them. I liked the glimpses into the other countries that Rhian deals with, especially Tzhung-tzhungchai. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kamran | 1/1/2010

    " Great finish to the trilogy. Very action packed and unpredictable. Well written and brings everything together. "
