In RHAPSODY Elizabeth Haydon tells a story that encompasses a world and centuries of time and which introduces three characters who have already captured a new generation of fantasy fans in the US. They embark on a journey through the centre of their world only to reach its end and find that centuries have passed and the land faces the awaking of a demon. Haydon¿s world building is unusually well thought out and vivid, her magic system is rigorous, her battle scenes realistic and massively exciting. But it is her characters, the intelligent and resourceful Rhapsody, the enigmatic assassin Achmed and the gruff but dependable Grunthor that have captured the imagination and affection of thousands of readers. This is a trio of characters who will carry the first great fantasy series of the 21st century on their shoulders.… (mais)

I actually read this one many years ago. And what I remember was that I was bored, bored, bored.

I also remember I picked it up multiple times after that because I somehow forgot I read it already.

The last time I did this I actually started reading it in English and realised somewhere around chapter one why it seemed familiar.

And still I think it's a shame because apparently I really like the blurb and the cover. ( )

Awesome.

I'm not really sure how to review this without spoilers as I've read books 2 and 4-6 before reading this one so my experience was most likely very different than most. I'll just say that this book did not disappoint and I'm so glad to see where Rhapsody's journey started as well as where some characters come from and get more of characters that didn't make it all the way.

And that's it because I don't have anything else to say that isn't in the context of the rest of the series, but please go read this 'cause it's a great fantasy book in the vein of Game of Thrones, but with more magic and I liked it more. ( )

This book and its whole series (at least as far as I read; I couldn't stomach it enough to get past book six, The Assassin King) is so insipid and stupid I can't do it justice in a review.

The protagonist, Rhapsody, is a Mary Sue who is so beautiful all men fall over at the sight of her ( apparently only allosexual, heterosexual, and cisgender people exist in this world.) Her love interest, Ashe (or Sam or Gwydion, take your pick) is a domineering creep.

The romance is a ridiculous insta-love that would be only silly and stupid if it had not involved sex with a fourteen-year-old girl (and she was only barely fourteen. It was her fourteenth birthday).

The writing style is purple and melodramatic, and the magic system is supposed to be so amazingly powerful that it can do virtually anything, but it's only used a few times in the whole series up to where I stopped, and then it's stupid. For example, if Rhapsody can only transform people and things by saying their true names, how did she turn back into Rhapsody after turning herself into a raindrop? Do raindrops have vocal chords?

The only characters I could stand were Achmed and Grunthor. They are the only reason the whole series isn't 1 star. ( )

Still a good book, though I was more critical of it this time through than last. ( )

I give up. Haven't touched this in months. Maybe I'll try again at a later date. Just not doing it for me this time.

This one’s a pure romance. If you want an emotional fantasy series with some pretty strong characterization and a well-realized world, Rhapsody is the book you're looking for.
