This book remembers John and Frederick Warneke, merchant and Gentleman of the Tower of London. Books By Sara Douglass. It rose some three hundred feet from the valley floor to a smooth flattened peak. I’ve met some strange people in London, but you two have proved the most surprising. To either side, and to the north beyond the valley, rose many similar hills, although these were all wooded. Mist drifted in the valleys between the hills, scarlet and blue birds dipping languidly in and out of its billowing vapours.

Book Three of The Troy Game. The Troy Game (Volume 3). Sara Douglass. Douglass recreates the Aegean world and a Pre-Celtic England in a sweeping epic that grabs your attention at the first page. A powerful but despairing struggle, doom on a grand scale, with mostly unlikeable characters doing despicable deeds, but Douglass creates a memorable maze of events that somehow simultaneously repels and fascinates. A great addition to the story, it propels the characters forward in a journey with an as yet unclear ending.

Darkwitch Rising is the third title in Sara Douglass's compelling Troy Game series, a riveting historical fantasy series of love and revenge set against the very fabric of time itself.

Britian. An ancient land. Most think they know its history. But few suspect and fewer still know the truth.

For back in the mists of time came Brutus, last of the Trojan kings, who was armed with the knowledge of how to construct a magical Labyrinth that could rival the might of the gods. He was drawn to this place by the alluring sorceress Genvissa and together they almost succeeded in creating the Labyrinth. But in the end they were thwarted by Brutus's wife Cornelia, who understood the danger to the land. Her actions however trapped them all into a endless cycle of death and rebirth until the magic of the Labyrinth is completed.

Ages pass. Time and again the players have come close to victory but each time there is a new wrinkle to stay the fulfillment of power.

The Now that these soul travelers arrive in is a most unique one. The English are at war, not with a foreign power but amongst themselves; a mighty Civil War that threatens to destroy a nation. A great pestilence is upon the land and the newly restored Charles II sits upon the throne trying to hold chaos at bay...and he is one of the major players in this drama.

And he is not alone.

Darkwitch Rising was a completely engrossing novel. The plot twists and thickens in way I did not expect, and at the end, I was left with a sense of despair, knowing that I have to wait for the final installment.

As stated before, you have to have read the previous two books in the series before you cannot even begin to appreciate the majesty of this book. If you have not read Hades' Daughter and God's Concubine, you will not have the background to fully understand and appreciate the characters and the plot.

This novel is not a light read. It is extremely dramatic with no humor to lighten the mood, much like the other two in the series. While some people would find this a bad thing, I think it keeps the overall feeling of the series consistant while keeping you "on the edge of your seat" and focused on the story. This entire series has been one that keeps me thinking about the what has happened, what the characters should've done different, and what the heck is going to happen next... even when I am not reading it. To me, this is a mark of a especially talented author to keep a reader's interest as they go about their other daily tasks.

The characters is this series are extremely well-constructed. In most fantasy series, the characters will start out rather 2-dimensional, and as the author continues to write, will evolve into more complex personalities, purely through accident it seems. Not so in the Troy Game. The characters do evolve as the story progresses, but as a reader you can tell it is a purposeful evolution. The characters will occassionally refer back to their previous experiences/lives and what they have learned from them, and how it has shaped them into the people they are at this time. The occassional character who isn't evolving as fast as the others seems dim-witted and stubborn in comparison until you just want to reach in the book and slap some sense into them.

I realize that in this review I have not given an plot summary or set up to the novel. This is purposeful. There are a few great surprises in the novel that should not be ruined for other readers. I urge you to find them for yourself. Enjoy!

Very little is what it seems in this book.

And if you're rooting for Brutus and Cornelia to get it together you will shocked and dissapointed-I was.

That said, this does resolve nearly all the issues set up in the past books and set the stage for the next book perfectly.

There is more change in the major players of this book then ever-be prepared to except that evil can be overcome and love can be lost and people can be something they never should have been or would have been. Remember that all the titles of books before refer to Cornelia-this one does too.

Anyway, just read the book. I'm now counting the days until the last one comes out. And desperately hoping that Brutus can finally love Cornelia as he says he does.

Three months later-in retrospect I don't think I like this series very much. It's not very well written, it has no likeable charecters and a lot of the actions are brutaly offensive. Faced with the forth book recently published I find I've just lost intrest. In retrospect I think I find Sara Douglass's writing to be very dark and depressing and gloomy-but not always in a way that works. I wouldn't advise reading her stuff, excepting Threshold, unless you can work a two week depresion into your life.

Again, different lives, different time in history, different names... but the same story! You still feel like you're right there, in Sara Douglass' mind. You just understand everything! There is not one moment when you're lost while reading the book. You just crave it like sugar. One thing on your mind: "I SO wanna know how this story ends"! And then you go on and on... reading. You won't stop reading, until you're done with all the series!

The Troy Game series by Sara Douglas is an amazing series (4 books), for those who love adventure, mythology, magic and romance. The genre falls under Sci-Fi Fantasy, but the novels are so much more. This book, (along with the other three in the series), was a page turner and very well written, . The characters are interesting, and evolve through time. (You will understand this comment upon reading the books). I would highly recommend this book to other readers, even those who normally don't read this genre of books.

I enjoyed this series very much. I will say that this was my least favorite of the four, however I was still unable to put it down with all of the twists and turns of the story. It kept me guessing and reading late into the night. Very good series. Highly recommend.

Great book - and I can't wait till the next one comes out - however, everyone seems to be mixing up the character names in the reviews... genvissa-swanne reborn is not Kate - Kate is Erith reborn. Jane is Genvissa's next incarnation.

But - back to the book - pretty good - not what I expected at all... some of the characters continue to irk me - but it manages to do so in terms of personality. It's rare to find a book that makes the characters so realistic, complete with often huge flaws...

I'll be starting the writer's other books soon - I'm really fond of her style.
favorite new author (writing on behalf of my wife). now digging around to find what else she has written. will but them all.
