He has worked as a Navy pilot, lifeguard, delivery boy, unpaid datksong disc jockey, real estate agent, market research analyst, director of research for a political campaign, legislative assistant for a Congressman, Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the United States Environmental Protection Agency, a consultant on environmental, regulatory, and communications issues, and a college lecturer and writer in residence.

The diminuative plot can be summarized as: The enjoyable portions were the continuing saga of the characters to which the reader has become endeared in the first two books, and the development of new ideas by the sorceress in this world, for example, the creation of a pony express type of mail system.

Her musical ability has since given Anna influence, control, and the potential to be an enormously powerful sorceress. From a High Tower. It’s actually nice that the main character has little or no trouble overcoming her enemies, but she has had has much trouble overcoming her own guilt, to the extent that there was little or no joy to be rusing in any of the victories.

Glad I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. Leland Exton Modesitt, Jr. The Uni I was charmed by the first book in L.

Closer to the Heart. Dawn for a Distant Earth.

I am reasonably fond of rabid feminist fantasy, but this one ran out of steam for me. Dec 17, Andrew Brumpton rated it it was amazing. Anna seems isolated in her own realm, and I found it somehow disappointing to be introduced to Anna’s enemies, and their thoughts and feelings, to then have them defeated summarily, without Anna really having a clue as to what was driving them.


Aug 05, Kurtbg rated it liked it Shelves: The story is mostly one attack after another on different forts, with the herione, Anna having pangs of conscience the whole time. Get it free with day trial. To ask other readers questions about Darksong Risingplease sign up.

April 1, Imprint: But I can say at this point that I really want to see Anna make Erde a better place, and leave behind a legacy where women are treated better in Erde, much like Game of Thrones when it comes to the Machiavelli elements of ruling a kingdom. A Scandal in Battersea.

For some reason, risong the fact that she’s a powerful sorceress and has never lost a bottle, and is actually improving the kingdom by building bridges and bringing sexy rain back – some male lords just can’t seem to be humble and respect the new order.

Indeed, the reader slogs through the final few conflicts in the book because there is no question about the outcome.

Continuation of a predictable storyline. The title should be at least 4 characters long. Conflict and Resolutions The conflicts in this book are built up suspensefully and with powerful descriptive detail.

Haze and The Hammer of Darkness. Not much to it.

Darksong Rising

Especially when added to the first two books in the series. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. However, about midway through, it does lose a bit of it’s pull and ends up being more annoying than heart rending. Modesitt has published technical studies and articles, columns, poetry, and a number of science fiction stories.

I love this series. There are no challenges for Anna, and we’re left wondering why we should worry. Anna finds herself in darksojg land where women are seen as property or worse. She’s human and angst-ridden and real. Apr 13, Martha rated it it was amazing. By the time he gets to Darksong Rising, the third and final book in the series, he’s doing nothing but practicing his very darkxong narrative to give us more drksong the same.


Typical to the series, yes, there’s a lot of riding and eating biscuits and bread, and discussions about whether or not she’s doing the right thing; killing hundreds to potentially save millions.

There is plenty of politics and conniving and scheming. In the third installment, the story continues to follow Anna’s a music teacher from Earth pulled to the medieval Erde where she is suddenly one of the most gifted, or cursed trials as she tries to bring misogynistic, stubborn rulers to see her views on equality and justice.

Typical to the series, yes, there’s a lot of riding and eating biscuits and bread, and discussions about whether or not she’s doing the right thing; killing hundreds to potentially save mill A conclusion, indeed, that ties up all the dangling questions, including if Anna will ever save her new nation from both internal and external conflict.

Although using sorcery leaves her Like the 2nd book in this series, I do not remember much of this one in particular. The excitment engendered in The Soprano Sorceress, ended up bellyflopping in the following two books of the series, which do not differ from each other significantly enough to even merit their own volumes. Is there any possible way Anna can defeat such power? Anna, regent of Defalk, faces enemies foreign and domestic who wish to crush her for weilding too much power as well as being a woman.
