Written in Fire (Brilliance Saga #3) Reviews
I don't have a lot to say about this roller-coaster thrill ride, as I'm still gasping for breath. Suffice to say that the whole trilogy was BRILLIANT!
Let me start with the fact that while I read a great many books, I don't write a lot of reviews. It's usually pick a star and move on to the next title.
Man did I love this series, but wow was I bummed out at the end. Well perhaps bummed out is a little strong, maybe lost some momentum in the last mile would be a better way to put it.
Being the third and final book in the series I don't see any need to talk about how much fun the cast of characters and their individual "brilliance" is, or how st ...more
In Written in Fire, the conclusion to the Brilliance Saga trilogy, author Marcus Sakey once again ratchets up the tension and suspense. As was the case with Book 2, there were moments that the tension and suspense were so high that I had to stop myself from skipping ahead.
The entire trilogy was such a great ride. I loved the characters, the world-building, the action goodness, and how all the pieces of the story finally came together in the end. The conclusion was done well, though I do think ( ...more
I'm one of those many readers who fell in love with this series w/ its first installment. While the premise isn't overtly original (substitute "brilliants" with "mutants" in any X-Men comic and you'd have pretty much have the same story), the execution and colorful characters really made the whole thing gel. It was a smart thriller series and a lot of fun to read.
The end to the trilogy for me, however, sucked all the fun right out of it. I felt this book fell into so many cliches, from terrible ...more
this is how a trilogy should be written! You definitely want to read the first 2 books before reading this one-it's not really a standalone read. Lots of action, the characters blossom and I had a hard time putting it down. Will miss this storyline but Sakey certainly did it justice.
Dies ist nun der Abschluss der Trilogie über sogenannte Abnorme in einer fiktiven Welt. Wieder von vielen Intrigen und Machtkämpfen, offen und indirekt durchdrungen, gewinnt nun eine Seite der Kontrahenten und verhindert die Ausbreitung eines verheerenden Virus'.
Ich wurde gut unterhalten und gebe 08/10 Punkte.
The conclusion (?) to the Brilliance trilogy, although Sakey did leave the door open for further books, if he does not find success with another character. Terrorist John Smith wants the persecution of brilliants/twists to stop, and seems to be several steps ahead of everyone by grabbing some scientific research. Meanwhile, a ragtag group of militia are making a move on the New Canaan Holdfast of billionaire Erik Epstein using unorthodox means to combat the defenses. Our hero Nick Cooper has to ...more
A limp weak ending to a promising series, at least for me. I really liked the first one, was on board with the second (though I thought it was also weaker than the first--and my mother who enjoyed the first too, gave up midway through A Better World with a "eh, I'm done with this"), but this third one barely made it over the finish line and I had to struggle to keep going with it, which is rare for me in last book to a trilogy. Maybe the movie will be better, and I see it's under development and ...more
