DOWNLOAD The Time of the Dark AUTHOR Barbara Hambly
He Fionavar Tapestry so it should appeal to readers who prefer concrete details Now decades later it feels above average for genre if somewhat uninspired but I suspect that is because of my changing reader xpectations for fantasy I ll be looking for the next book I first started reading Hambly by reading her fantasy Though this book was not one of the ones I first read As I got older I think in many ways her historical fiction is a bit better Just a bit Not that the fantasy is bad or anythingThe Time of the Dark does combine both history and fantasy Two people from our world cross the void into a fantasy world that is losing to the very very bad things One of those people Gil is getting her PhD in history and so we get the history prof s reaction to seeing well basically history Gil s RckenYoga: Die DVD experience is interesting because she at first seems special but then not and becomes something other than what you will thinkThe other person Rudy is traditional and at times a bit annoying for he keeps referring to Gil as cold but I m notntirely sure why outside of the fact that she isn t his type While there are pretty of women supporting characters the women do not really talk to Schmerzmedizin - 1000 Fragen each other Which was strangeThe parts with the dark are really well done This isxcellent fun a traditional portal fantasy of the sort I hadn t read in years As far as Hambly s books go I didn t love it to pieces like The Ladies of Mandrigyn it doesn t turn tropes on their heads like Dragonsbane and I doubt the characters will prove as memorable to me as in Psychologische Homöopathie. either of those books but it s anxciting adventure nonethelessThe book has a bit of a slow start as we meet two 20 somethings Gil a grad student and Rudy a motorcycle painter living in southern California But within a couple of chapters they are transported to the medieval world of Darwath which is under assault by amorphous beings known as the Dark This is a short book the start of a short trilogy and Hambly successfully cuts to the chase the Dark is not supposed 35 stars I almost gave this one four stars but decided to stick with 35 as it just didn t pull me in like some of the other books I have read recently The Warded Man by Peter Brett and Iron Sunrise by Charles Stross to name just two recent reads that I would highly recommend That said Barbara Hambly is an The Viva Mayr Diet: 14 days to a flatter stomach and a younger you excellent writer and I will certainly read the next book in the trilogy I made the mistake of reading this novel and this series after seeing the second Aliens movie which is my favorite of all the Alien films When I was younger I read a lot Stephen King but only becauseveryone Aviation Logistics: The Dynamic Partnership of Air Freight and Supply Chain else at school was reading it and it irritated my mother or so I thought After a couple of years on a steady diet of horror I became bored and nothing was frightening or thrilling any longer I picked up The Time of the Dark mostly because it was another story along the lines of Stephen R Donaldson s Covenant series At least the premises was similar a contemporary person from our world is transported in some inexplicable way to a world in a different time and place where magic is indigenous and a struggle for survival is imminent Hambly surprised me with her ability to thrill me andven at times scare me I would attribute this to her ability to make me care deeply for her characters And when they were in danger I was on the dge of my Seat Hambly Writes The Hambly writes the convincing and inspiring female characters of any author I ve read May 2011 Update Reread this again and updating my review for Fantasy Literature Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsOnce long ago I recall walking through the Waldenbooks bookstore at my local mall trying to find something new to read After having crammed verything Middle Earth related into my brain I needed a new fix of pic fantasy adventure Sure I d loved Donaldson s Thomas Covenant books read Moorcock and begun The Belgariad with Eddings but I was looking for something a bit different And that is when I saw the cover of The Time of the Dark Obviously my attention was caught by the image of a classic fantasy wizard shadowy hood long white hair flowing beard staff and robes in the Gandalf mode drinking a beer in a 1980 style kitchen It struck me as a bit ridiculous Can t be at all related to the story I thought to myself as I stopped to read the description on the backB.

I Can Say About This Book Orcan say about this book or Barbara Hambly as an author is I m jealous that she devotes her time to other genres sometimes too instead of this one alone Why is this a comfort book series for me Well what woman feeling down and out would NOT feel amazingly inspired by the kick ass toughness and intelligence behind those silvery school marm yes of Gil Shalos Patterson This is a book I return to again and againIt is
comfort read the book I up when I am too tired to read something new That sounds odd given the subject matter but within moments of picking it up Hambly s prose is invisible to me and I am trudging down the road with the refugees blinded by snow freezing and wondering what s out there in the darknessI can recommend this book on so many levels The characters are people you come to know like friends Their voices become familiar their mannerisms comforting The setting is rich and gritty you can smell the animal dung taste the bitter smoke on the breeze and hear the chitter of the dark as they float between the trees In many ways this is an archetypal fantasy book It contains all the fantasy tropes the wise mage and his apprentice the warrior the princess Yet The Art of Memoir each of these is new.
