The Way of the Rose (Everien, #3).

The Way of the Rose (Everien, Published August 27th 2002 by Spectra. Paperback, 560 pages. Author(s): Valery Leith. ISBN: 0553579053 (ISBN13: 9780553579055).

the trilogy seems to have been written as one book, and then chopped into three roughly equal parts for publication, so that the finales of the first two books, arbitrarily set, are not written as such, which does not, let's say, encourage the reader to persevere. and the trilogy subject matter, time paradoxes, are not exactly a common theme in fantasy

Book 3 of 3 in the Everien Series. In the concluding volume of the Everien high fantasy trilogy, Leith's (The Riddled Night) fertile imagination once again outpaces her narrative technique

Book 3 of 3 in the Everien Series. In the concluding volume of the Everien high fantasy trilogy, Leith's (The Riddled Night) fertile imagination once again outpaces her narrative technique. Istar, the woman warrior, has to fight for the liberation of her homeland of Everien from the Pharicians while also fending off the time worms who threaten universal chaos; just for good measure, she's carrying the winged Eteltar's child.

Book Three (Everien). Published August 2001 by Tandem Library. When a spider spins a web, she doesn't use a ruler or a compass to calculate her angles.

i have purchased all 3 of the Everien series. i have not come across any thing like this trilogy where the plot and the fantasy world is this complex. i found it very enjoyable and i hope you do too! Complex and not a cliche. Published by Thriftbooks

The title of this review sums it up: this book is a mixed bag.
First of all, let me say that I loved the first book in this series, "The Company of Glass." I thought it was different from every other fantasy I'd ever read, had complex and egaging characters, and most unique world I've ever encountered.
The second book, "The Riddled Night," was more exciting but confusing and the plot became tangled.
In this third and final volume, the plot unravelled completely.
What happened? It was as if Valery Leith wrote down her first-draft, first-impressions of the plot and didn't think it over. It's like her muse, pure creativity with no order, took over and left her without any control over what happened.
Now, the first two books got some negative reviews, I assume from readers looking for mindless sword-and-sorcery. Her books are mature and poetic, and sometimes too wordy, sometimes slow-moving, but she writes so beautifully with such distinctive imagery, it's worth it.
OK. "The Way of the Rose" made such little sense that I can no longer recommend the series to friends without beign embarassed.
The only reason I give this book 3 stars, instead of 1, is because there is no other fantasy world like this one, and Leith's writing and command of language is moving and beautiful.
Command of plot, she has not. What happened to the story that so captivated me in the first book? The backstory of Queen Ysse's quest for magic artifacts, and Quintar's company. . .where did it go? What about Istar, the warrior woman feeling lonely and confused? Now she's in love with a. . .I don't know, a bird man/monster. . .and it's the plot that's confused.
A character I liked, Xiriel the scholar, disappeared completely.
And my favorite character, Tarquin, formerly Quintar the Queen's champion, now a warrior in self-imposed exile, tormented by his past failures. . .what happens to him? Well, a horse eats him...
You see, my review is as incoherent as this book. Sadly, Leith had such a good thing going with the previous two volumes. I think it was the "time-serpent" that undid it.
I do recommend this book to anyone who wants to write fantasy or study every aspect of the fantasy genre. Don't write a plot like this! But do think of things as interesting as these, and write with such poetic beauty. Just keep control over your muse.

This is the conclusion of Valery Leith's Everien series, and is one of the most imaginative books I've ever read (this includes the Dune series(Frank Herbert), Lord Of The Rings(J.R.R. Tolkien), and The Gunslinger(Stephen King). Her mastery of language and description is downright poetic at times, and her characters are as good as any in the books I mentioned above.
That said, this isn't a very easy read. It does have a plot, but the plot is extreemly complex, and some of the places the book takes place in are even more so. They are very good, but I found myself having to read a few chapters twice to understand what was happening. It is still so good, though, that I had to give it five stars (althogh it probably deserves 4.5).
The bottom line: this is an amazing book, but only if you can handle it. If you aren't a strong reader, you will probably get extreemly confused and not be able to enjoy it as much.
