    1 thought on “The Silent Tempest

    1. yes so far I'm one of the only 2 people to give this book a 1 star.Why, because I did not like it. Most of my dislike was based on subjective things related to characters. Spoilers aheadDanielHaving taken a 10 year break from fighting (presumably doing nothing but eating grapes and frolicking in the trees)he is even more full of rage and self loathing. He is 35 years old +- and he still acts like he did in the past but now he communicates in nothing but grunts and growls for which Alex Wyndham g [...]

    2. I was disappointed in this book. Im not gonna say it was bad because it wasnt but it was lacking. The series went from being fresh and interesting in the first book to just a standard fantasy with his anger flared and the love he cant forget. It gets old real fast and despite the author telling us otherwise in his introduction, the story's basically about a standard hero with a few skellies and hard time in his baggage. 10 years has passed since we saw Tyrion last time, meaning he is around 30. [...]

    3. I finished this in triple-quick time! I don't remember reading a book this quickly. I was expecting it to take at least a week, given my busy schedule and my relatively low reading speed of late. The only book I remember to have invoked strong emotions in me is Faith of the Fallen. The Silent Tempest did more than just that. It made me sit and think, really think. The story isn't particularly plot based. It's more focused on the characters. Characters that accurately reflect human behaviour: our [...]

    4. Michael's writing continues to mature, and I enjoyed this book so much I immediately re-read it. Apart from developing Tyrion's character into a more realistic and conflicted person, the characterisation of his children is very good. There's a real sense of them as different people. Underlying the main plot is a very clever secondary narrative, which deals with the aftermath and consequences of colonisation, showing that even when the colonisers realise how horrifically they have behaved, this c [...]

    5. The Silent Tempest is a wonderful addition to Manning's world. In this series we find out the hidden reasons that dominate so much of his other books. It is not an easy read, content, although the writing is gentle and in places very beautiful. Learning more about the events that led to the Blacksmith's son is the reason these books exist, but they are not history tomes, nor supplements. They stand fully alone as very good stories in their own right. They add greater depth and emotion to the alr [...]

    6. Couldn't put it down.I was thinking about this book during my work day. Seriously how good is a book when you obsess about how soon you'll be able to pick it up again? The answer is really GOOD!

    7. I'm giving this book a 4.5 it was great but just it was a little to short and just slightly not as good as book 1.

    8. As with most books its tough to maintain the pace and narrative when you move from the main protagonist to add multiple new people into the plot. In this case, its the offspring and Kate who come back into the picture. And its handled pretty well all things considered. But now we are primarily reading to know the ending rather than the tale really being gripping. All in all still recommended.

    9. This book really could’ve been five stars. The only reason why is because I’m not necessarily in love with any of the characters. The main character I admired in the first book wore off on me. Although he is very loyal, he’s a bit too rough for me. Daniel has a mini harem going on and I think “Illy” is preggers too. Obviously his brood is his army and I can’t wait to read the next book. Bravo!

    10. Mixed feeling about this book. It was gut wrenching, the situation with danials kidsough I no longer feel sympathy for him. A lot of things were forced on him, but not all things. We got a number of him female victims; 27 women he raped. 27 he used his mind control powers on, an many he impregnated, shattering their lives; one even killed herself; Danial is strong though so nobody can truly punish him, in the end he just brushes past it, with the help of Kate.Kate, her character was supposed the [...]

    11. The story itself was enjoyable with a few annoyances that did take me out of my immersion in it. I listened to the Audiobook, and did not read the book itself.Slight spoilers ahead.What ruined my immersion the most was the level self-loathing the main character has. This trait was shown in The Mountain's Rise, but it was not nearly so prominent and it felt more like a method to emphasize the changes that Daniel had gone through as a result of the cruel treatment from his masters. In The Silent T [...]

    12. The second book of the Illeniel loses a little of that raw edge and desperation that made the first so great. It gains more of the emotional turmoil; that am I a bad guy or am i just doing what i must, which marred the first. Don't get me wrong emotional impact is a must in a gripping read but someone spending 40? years figuring out he isn't to blame for making the best of the conditions his masters impose on him is a little tiresome.It's still a good book. There is plenty of action, although it [...]

    13. Nice flowThis is a five star book for me. I really like the structure and flow. Kind of short chapters, and third person narrative(which I usually don't like that much) made this series very addictive. For me, a movie with subtitles makes me take a lot more in, because I have to read it and can't zone out; this book for me was like a movie with subtitles. Glad that's cleared up. I still don't see the terrible, seemingly irredeemable traits in any characters that some other reviewers have mention [...]

    14. reaping the harvestTyrion's children are in danger from the groves. his unparalleled success in the arena has shown them that there are better ways to get excellent barratti. as Tyrion races to Colne to gather his brood, he is fully aware that life with him will be a horror. but perhaps as slaves of the Illeniel grove and with his training, a few might survive.Michael continues to relate the history of the house of Illeniel with all it's pain and love. characters are easily accessible, locations [...]

    15. Great Story I'm not gonna wax and wane on about the merits of this well told tale, there are plenty of others who will write a dissertation for you. What I am gonna say is I wish I could have read this series before the Mageborn series. I have absolutely loved everything about these first two books and anxiously await the final book in 2016. If you are a newcomer to Michael Manning then you are lucky and have so many hours of great reading ahead of you. Me, I think I'll go back and re-read the l [...]

    16. Michael just outdid himself on this one. Tyrion is a total badass. The story is beautifully written and flows smoothly. Although it ends in a cliffhanger( considering we already know how the future will play out)it just want one to be directly transported to 2016 when the next part in the series is expected.Ps: pleasantly surprised by this work because thornbear made me believe that the authors quality was decreasing.

    17. Listened to the audio version. Couldn't put it down.Overall: This whole series is one of the best I’ve read in 2017. This particular book was a brilliant second act with equal parts tragedy and triumph. It’s dark, but touching. It’s exciting, but tragic. Those who love dark fantasy should check out all of Manning’s work.Full review on my blog at: mlsweech.wordpress/2017/0

    18. Bloody Brilliant book! fantastic!!I honestly couldn't put this down. My Priorities in the world had suddenly changed until i had got this book finished.I only wish it was longer and that the next book was available.

    19. loving the story and the book so far. on of my favorite books. sometimes the characters can seem a bit simple, but the story is so fun and interesting that i don't really mind that minor flaw. let's get this book 3 going Mike.

    20. I love this series read Marylebone 1-5 Thornbury and then embers of millennial 1-2. Now I have to wait an e entire year for the next book. Love this series. Couldn't put it down!

    21. Long wait startsWell I finished Book 2. This story really is good, however, the wait for the next installment will drive me crazy. If you liked the Mageborn book get these and learn a lot more.

    22. Solid second bookSlow start, but finished strong. Looking forward to book 3. I have enjoyed all the books by Manning to this point

    23. Great easy readEnjoyed the story, thought that the ending, where the other groves attacked, was really sudden and confused me for a moment. All in all though great story.

    24. As typical with Michael G. Manning, this book does not disappoint. It pulls you right in, then refuses to let you go. It's going to be a MISERABLY long wait for the next book.

    25. HOLY COW do I love this series. I couldn't stop listening and found excuses to get in an extra 5-10 minutes as much as possible! My only complaint is that the third book is not out yet!

    26. Good follow up to mountain rising. Love the booksI enjoyed the mountain rising better. Its really good book no the less.Must read for fantasy readers. Have fun
