Iron Garland Reviews
Oh boy, a very nice addition to the series.
I am very prone to have a favourite POV when there are more than one. I was enamoured by Cettie from the first chapter of the first book. Sera's chapters were often just a distraction from my actual interest, but Sera has grown on me over the course of the last three books.
I admit that I often just want to skip ahead each time I reach Sera's parts, but I persist and start reading her parts, and each time the author manages to catch my interest in her st ...more
NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I'll only say that the ending took me completely by surprise.
This was such a delicious read, interesting clues dropped, and many, MANY things to ponder such as Joanna. Jeff Wheeler has done it again.
Iron Garland marks the midway point of the Harbinger series. In most series, this is where the story slows down and not much happens as the author slowly moves pieces into place but withholds any sort of resolution in order to keep the tension for the concluding installment(s). I am so glad to report that Iron Garland does not succumb to that problem. It is not a stand-alone novel in any sense of the word, but enough of the story lines are given a sense of completion that it feels like a novel a ...more
Jeff Wheeler doesn't hesitate to start "Iron Garland" off with a jaw-dropping reveal that yanks you into the story and makes you want to continue reading to the end!
Three years have passed since the events of "Mirror Gate," and both Sera and Cettie are surviving their current situations. The former is still exiled from society and is living under house arrest, and the latter is running her family's estate. However, while people continue to shun them, both young women fortify themselves in order ...more
We enter the scene three years later, and Sera and Cettie have both matured and grown. Their circumstances and responsibilities have formed them into new people - but better.
Sera is more reticent, keeps her own counsel and has unintentionally learned the art of manipulation. That may sound like a negative, but because she's honest she works through this as well as other issues.
Cettie has the responsibility of caring for the family home and has earned the respect of many, though there are some wh ...more
Disclaimer: I received this book free from Netgalley in return for an unbiased review.
He did it again. Mr. Wheeler sets about making me care about people and then up-ends them. Twice in this book! Once in the first chapter!! I expect this kind of tricksy-ness from George R. R. Martin, but you sir! Don’t stop! 😊
These are such great books. Cettie, is becoming a force to reckon with. Her power is unstoppable but it is tempered with such a sweetness of character. I adore her and her entire adopted f ...more
Yet another win for Jeff Wheeler! I love these books, all of them! I feel like our characters are finally getting everything together and everything is being set up. The rich history of Muirwood and Kingfountain being brought together yet again, comes more from reading the other series but is mentioned here and there in this series as well is such a breathtaking background for the story.
Our 2 FMC's Cettie and Sera are really coming into their own as the story progresses. I love how they are eac ...more
This is definitely the best of the Harbinger Books so far. Cettie and Sera are growing in strength and wisdom as they take separate paths to adulthood, and face very different challenges as a devastating battle wages between their homeland of sky people and the water-worshipping world of Kingfountain. Cettie has become the secret harbinger who shares her visions of the coming battles with her adopted father, Admiral Fitzroy, and helps their side prevail until a storm brings down their sky ships ...more
