Additionally some characters seemed to change completely from previous books, such as Dragon. Isobelle I will forgive you if you rewrite this novel.

Slap in the face after slap in the face. The exciting part of the book While Ariel’s ending was satisfying and deserved, there was also no menace left in his role by the time they arrived at the city. View all 9 comments. Yes, the isobel,e was very slow, especially the whole pages in habitat and midland an interesting plot but not enough relevance to the jsobellewhich went on for way too long credit to Elspeths “gnawings” however after arriving at Redport, I couldn’t put it down with the incentive caemody I would soon get answers to the hte list of questions perpetrating my mind.

Do they have children? I just wish she’d been done slightly more justice in the telling. So you will find below spoilers for the first part, and a lot of random babbling by me. And they spent a fair bit of time in Habitat. Miryum, Ahmedri and Tash? While it would have been nice to have more space to really explore these various new lands and people mentioned after they got to the Red Land, there was enough there to prick ones interest and piece it together against our current world.

My only other complaint is that there was too little Rushton in this novel. Everyone thinks the mind block is a machine I was genuinely hoping for a good ending and Nov 17, Rebecca marked it as sequels-i-cant-read-yet Shelves: The entire contents of the last book plus half of this book should have been condensed into the first pages of this book.


I only started a few years ago when I was twelve, so even though I consider myself quite lucky in comparison to others who waited near three decades for the conclusion of these books, I was impatient for the conclusion of thf series.

Beautifully written, great characters and the anticipation of what fate held for The Seeker lasted well over 2 decades but the author lost interest in her own story. Award-winning Australian author Isobelle Carmody concludes the epic story of Elspeth Gordie, a heroine in the vein of Tamora Pierce’s most memorable and empowering protagonists. You can clearly see where things have been forgotten and just left hanging as Carmody went off on yet another tangent, and things that were meant to have big reveals were casually mentioned earlier in the book by mistake.

This was where we had been destined to come together.

The Red Queen

I also had another comparison in mind, but momentarily forgotten. Lets move on to the characters. The Red Queen is the title of the final book in the series as published in Australia; a different book in the series as published in North America has also been tentatively titled “The Red Queen” but corresponds to the second half of the Australian edition of The Sendingbook 6, and would not contain any part of this book.

The Red Queen (The Obernewtyn Chronicles, #7) by Isobelle Carmody

So far, I have only read up to the end of Part One. While I have always and probably always will love this series with a cafmody, the quality went remarkably downhill from book five onward. The naming of the computer ‘God’ at Midland seems deeply ironic. A lot of stuff I want to say would be considered spoilers.

What am I going to do with my life now?! When is the release date?

What had I been spending the last 20 years waiting for? Post was not sent – check your email addresses! I love her strength, her isobelpe, her authenticity and her flaws. There were also pages upon pages of what seemed like rather pointless speculation and logistics. It’s an impressive weave of story threads, as small details, foretellings, dreams, characters, chance comments and all come together and are woven in. Or some little girl that she has met on the street?

It might not have been good isobeple logical action but it would have been something. I was so disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of him!!

Simply because the Red Queen features all the characters from previous stories, and for several pages, it took me awhile remember all the faces. The romance oh my god made me giggle like a ten year old I’m not gonna lie, as I have held the suspicion that Dameon loves Elspeth ever carmpdy the first book, and that scene was everything if should’ve been. I thought this book would have benefitted from the deletion of the entire Habitat sequence, deletion of all the irrelevant info dumping on Red Land and Gadfia, fleshing out the action in the last pages and giving some voice to all the missing characters and what they’d been up to since the ships sailed away.

The exploration of the ravaged landscape and the piecing together of clues combined with rushing headlong into the unknown and hoping it would pan out okay for her quest was also familiar and very enjoyable. Okay, here we go. They vision at convenient moments and act accordingly. Is this the end? Unless you are an absolute die hard fan of the series just read a plot caromdy.
