I enjoyed this one best of the three It s told from Calanthes perspective He plays an important part in the first books too and he is probably the most interesting character of the series His cynicism and wit shine through in the writing, which felt different from the first two parts I was quite impressed by that.

Especially at the start the story is very dark This volume follows Cal, the unhappy har who is running from his past and leaving a trail of broken hearts in his wake The book starts out well enough, with a dark feel matching the mindset of its narrator, but it drags on too long for my taste Even Cal complains about how drawn out his journey of self discovery is The conclusion also underwhelmed me, though it did wrap up the trilogy I suppose the book met my expectations but just didn t exceed them in the way that the first two books did If I had an interest in Wicca, I do think this volume would have appealedbecause of its focus on magic and the duality of dark light in human nature.
My chief complaint with Fulfilments is the revelation of the existence of view spoiler a female origin hermaphrodite tribe hide spoiler These notes were made in 1993 This last of the three Wraethtu books is told by Cal, who has been a central figure in all three In this one, through a flashback structure imposed over a quest journey, we get explanations of the mysteries in Cal s past as well as the completion of his self acceptance In terms of structure, I think this is the most satisfying of the three books, although the actual climax a massive environmental psychic event in the capital city of Immanion, which changes it from an ideal and rather impossibly beautiful place to ahumane but ratherwartish one like the process of self acceptance Cal has gone through did not move me as much as it was meant to, I think As usual, I found the erotic subtext very enjoyable, and the various different kinds of symbolic landscape The Third Volume Of Storm S original Wraeththu Trilogy, Expanded And Updated This Final Story Is Narrated By Cal, One Of The Most Complex And Mysterious Of All The Wraeththu Characters Down On His Luck, And Haunted By His Questionable Past, Cal Comes To Realise He Cannot Escape His Destiny, And That The Har He Once Loved And Believed Dead Is Now Ruler Of All Wraeththu I wish I could read a book the in the same way that I observe matter I see the sky and accept that it is what it is Why is it I can t read a book without somehow feeling cheated of what it could have been Who knows, but the fact is, I do, and this is how I feel after 2405 pages of Wraththu ness It was good, yes, but there were things I found distracting after a while Why the horses and ye olden day life when there were cars and planes and telephones What up with the Dwarves and Elven folk I mean the Mojag and Ehlman Where s Froto through all this Oh wait, he s the Tigron, I forgot.
Still, this scratched the itch in me for spiritual sexual intimacy Her writing isn t exploitive and is very elegant but I m glad to be done with Aruna for a while.
Enjoyed the three books Love the setting and ideas and the writing is great but somehow the characters are not fully formed Think she would have been better off staying along the apocalyptic story line than the paradise one and kept the setting quite basic Think if she haddepth to the characters and their motivations, which I don t think would have taken much this series would have been the best ever As it was I really enjoyed it and wished it would never end I am looking forward to readingby the author and hope her character descriptions become as good as her environmental ones.
I didn t enjoy this one as much as the first two It had a different feel that was out of sync with the others, even if it did wrap the trilogy up nicely It was a strange series over all, I haven t read any of Storm Constantine s work for many years and I wasn t quite prepared for it I look forward reading the Histories trilogy.
