KING OF KINGS, LORD OVER MEN AND DEMONS ALIKEOnly one ruler had ever held that title, and now Iraj Protarus, an orphaned prince exiled to a small village high in the Valley of the Clouds, dreamed of being the next great conqueror. The key to his destiny would be Safar Timura, a youth with an awesome gift for sorcery, whose visions foretold Iraj's rise to power. And in those visions, Safar stood at Iraj's side, his soul-blasting spells enabling his friend to attain his dreams.  But Safar had other visions with darker portents, and his spellbound knowledge raised secrets better left buried.

Talk about Wizard of the Winds (Tales of the Timuras)


Blackworm
The main attraction this book held for me was the fact that it is not "european" fantasy. Instead, the backdrop offers us a middle eastern flair, and in my mind this made all the difference in the world because other than that, the book really is your standard fantasy fair. The characters are two dimensional, the plot is a little above average, but still never really takes off, and the demons are unconvincing.

If you are looking for a great read, great literature, or anything that will move you, move on. If you are looking for something that is a little different to pass the time in between your series favorites, then this may be worth a shot. (One bonus is that even though it is part of a series, this book works perfectly fine as a stand alone. Therefore, if you do not like it enough to move on, then you have not lost anything.)

It was the strangest thing, reading this book. Not once while I was reading did I see any relationships or characterizations that made sense beyond the cookie-cutter definitions accorded to fictional characters.

Characters were friends because they (and the book) declared it to be so. Not once did I see any reasoning or backing for any of it.

Romantic relationships were lust-driven and still considered to be love, true love, without any backing of plausible interactions that would indicate a relationship in the works. More like, "I say I am in love, and therefore I am."

A character was pushed to action because someone felt it was his destiny, not because the character felt particularly inclined to do anything.

Utterly bizarre. Everyone remained 2 dimensional.

Other than the mindless of acceptance of how things should be in a fantasy novel, the book isn't so bad. Still, not good.

You'll probably keep reading because you want to find out what happens, but what is the point of reading a book whose prologue tells you what end the book is leading to?

Timur Safar (the protagonist) begins out as a naive, trusting young man who graudually matures into his fated station in life. His relationship with a childhood friend, Protarus, is the main focus of this tale. When demons invade their land and threaten the sanctity of Protarus's reign, Safar must come in and aid his long time friend. However, time has distanced the two as well as destiny. This story for me was heartbreaking, maybe it was the music in the background of my room, or the late hour in which I stayed up to finish the book, but I think that it was the touching reality in which Cole described the most painful separation of people who care. This is a must read:)

I was very disappointed int this book. I look forward to non-european based fantasy, but this book didn't deliver. The demons were pretty one dimensional as villains, the plot predictable and forced and the payoff at the end wasn't worth the bother
Hawk Flying
I read this book and I truley enjoyed it, I thought the idea of Demons not being from the pits of hell, winged/chaotic was a good idea and the fact that they thought of humans as disgusting made me think Cole did a great job with this idea, this is a great book, I have read the entire trilogy and this is the best of all 3 to me
Gavirim
A stranger on a lone hill, the bad guy right? Not exactly. A awesomly written story of love, betarayel, and death. Cole writes a riviting novel which I highly recomend to fantesy lovers!
