Rachel Aaron â 0 Read Read & Download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook â Rachel Aaron Read The Legend of Eli Monpress ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Eli Monpress is talented He's charming And he's a thiefBut not just any thief He's the greatest thief of the age and he's also a wizard And with the help of his partners a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world. Rachel Aaron s debut fantasy series is so addictively entertaining and fun that I blasted through all three books in the first omnibus in four daysIt had been uite a while since I have so much fun reading a series one which also keeps getting better as it progresses Lady if you are here to warn the king about Eli then you re a little late You mean he s already stolen the artifact No He s stolen the king Eli Monpress is an arrogant mischievous and irrepressible thief He is also a wizard Aided by his companions Josef Leichten a talented swordsman with the world s most powerful sword and Nico a girl with an incubating demonseed within her and who can travel through shadows Eli has a mission And this is to create the largest bounty ever in history to be placed on his head The culmination of Eli s high profile heists has thus attracted the attention of the Spirit Court a governing body of wizards who sent its most promising prot g Miranda Lyonette to apprehend the infamous rogueThese four form the main characters of the series written in a third person perspective Their characterisation is progressively developed and unveiled from one book to the next Miranda was probably the one whom we get to know the most of in the first book Spirit Thief while Eli was initially given a mysterious persona such that one wonders why this dude was so special Eli is indeed uite extraordinary and that knowledge was not withheld for too long as the Prologue in the seuel The Spirit Rebellion provided a flashback of him as a young boy which revealed as much as it teased There is also a better balance between each of the main characters POVs from here onwards The third book The Spirit Eater then provided focus on Nico and her inner struggles as the bearer of an unusually potent demonseed that is threatening to overpower her humanity The magic of this world centres around the powers inherent in all things through its spirits From the trees to rocks doors and floors fire wind and water and of course humans everything has a spirit and the larger the object or element the greater its powers Wizards are humans born with the ability to listen and commune with these spirits and hence able to employ their powers through various means This could either be a spiritual bonding for mutual benefit or through coercion or enslavement Then we have Eli s charming method which is something that I am not going to mention in this review The spirit based magic is both fascinating and fun It can get uite hilarious especially when the spirits of various objects converse with the human wizards I adore this concept and it is one of the main reasons why I find these books so enjoyable As a side note it does seem that the author has a fondness for spirit magic because a somewhat different form of it also appears in the Heartstrikers series another favourite of mine The plots across all three instalments can appear to be repetitive as somehow Eli and Miranda will always end up in the same place through some convenient twist of fate And while the danger or trouble escalates one does get the notion that our main characters will pull through somehow However these are minor issues for me because of the sheer entertainment value presented by these books Eli s friendship with Josef gave me vibes of the Riyria duo except that the personalities are sort of reversed with the latter being the dour and serious one The storytelling and narrative style also reminded me of Michael J Sullivan s Riyria series a light hearted fantasy that is easy and effortless to read with great characters humour page turning action and sufficient gravity to keep it from being just a comedy of sorts Don t pick this up if you are looking for deep dark or complex plots If however you need something delightfully enjoyable I do recommend this series wholeheartedly The ratings for the individual books are as follow The Spirit Thief 45 starsThe Spirit Rebellion 455 starsThe Spirit Eater 455 stars

The Legend of Eli Monpress is an omnibus containing Rachel Aaron s first three novels The Spirit Thief The Spirit Rebellion and The Spirit Eater The fourth novel in the series entitled The Spirit War is due out in June so this book is a great way to catch up if you re unfamiliar with this light but entertaining fantasy series I enjoyed these novels back when they were first released within three months of each other in 2010 but the new omnibus edition is a nice improvement over the individual books That s partly because the cover illustration by Sam Weber suits the series so much better than the original covers and partly because the price tag is attractiveSo if you didn t catch these novels when they were originally released and if you enjoy light action packed and often funny fantasy this is a great opportunity to check out Rachel Aaron s The Legend of Eli MonpressPlease read the entire review here on my site Far Beyond Reality

I had trouble rating this because its 3 books in 1 and I felt differently about each book Book 1 was the weakest and i thought it was about a 35 I think book 3 was the strongestI dunno 42 During the first book ai felt like Spirit Thief was a rough draft for Nice Dragons because there was so much in common down to a water spirit being an asshole it was different enough for me to enjoy it though Longer review to come
