    • 3.5 5 StarsA highly original debut and a good start to a quartet.A Shadow in Summer is Daniel Abraham s debut and the first book in the Long Price Quartet series After finishing this book, I have to say that I m deeply impressed by its originality There is a lot of subtlety that goes into the book here, Abraham also has created a low fantasy series that s influenced heavily by Eastern culture especially with the way he implemented poses in the characters daily activities However, the average rat [...]


    • When you ve read fantasy for as long as I have you get tired of the fact that 90% of fantasy tales revolved around a dumb farm boy who is the missing heir to the kingdom or to long gone magical powers, he has a good heart but can t seem to get the girl, he has to leave home and help the world nation kingdom against some Dark Lord, who tends to be archetype and has some old mentor who gives him the sword magical talisman to win and kick the beejesus out of the Dark Lord Oh, and then he gets the g [...]


    • Via Book Reviews by Niki Hawkes at nikihawkesI will be the first one to admit that the overview sounds a little boring and convoluted The first time I picked it up in a bookstore, I almost disregarded it right away and put it back on the shelf The reading gods must have been looking out for me that day because for one reason or another I cracked it open to read the first page And didn t stop for thirty minutes It was fascinating and engaging starting out by introducing a complex communication sy [...]


    • I have definitely read much worse fantasy, or fiction, for that matter, and I see that subtlety and thoughtfulness is the name of this tune, but honestly, it was slow and not much happens.It was, on the other hand, quite readable and the characters were very solid, even memorable as far as they go The society, the empire, is also quite fleshed out and has a character all of its own I have no complaints with any of that Indeed, I think it s quite remarkable.I don t even have a problem with the pr [...]


    • And love is important than justice, Seedless said Sometimes Yes Seedless smiled and nodded What a terrible thought, he said That love and injustice should be married The main merit of A Shadow in Summer lies in how its Author bound ideas into words and then formed them into a language comprehensible for us, ordinary human beings As to the lives these ideas led, the choices they made, the roads they had taken and the tales that could be told about it that is altogether a different matter Abraham [...]


    • 4.25 A buddy Read with the FBR Group Because we love originality And this is exactly what this book offered originality and plenty of it I had no idea what to expect, but I was blown away by how different and complex the plot of this fascinating story offers If you are expecting a traditional Fantasy with some political jostling in it, you have the wrong book This is not at all in the realm of the Fantasy I have known up to now Yes, we have a world of imagination, a city state made strong by flo [...]


    • This was part of a group read and I liked it best of everybody reading the book Which is odd because I think I m the first one to complain when Fantasy or Sci Fi books don t have any action and move slow Others thought that of this book but it wasn t that way for me There s just something about DA s writing style where both the characters and world are so descriptive The emotions and interactions come off the page in HD where another author trying for the same is a black and white 9 built in the [...]


    • The review that hooked me review show The review that should ve hooked me much earlier review show I don t think beginning this series with a marathon reading session while sick was the best approach, since fevers make me to skim faster and I missed some intricacies Illness also makes me so lazy, such that I was unwilling to move even though I d hunched down into a painful sitting crouching fetal position Despite that and despite the visual trumpet blare of the pompous title fonts, and my curren [...]


    • 4 maybe a 3.75 stars So if I need to describe this first book in 2 words I would say Original and ClinicalOriginal, because let s be honest it s nothing like other fantasy novels I ve read, the magic system is about capturing ideas into humanoid forms called Andat and control them to do the bidding of the castor, however these forms develop somewhat human traits and emotions as well, cue instant interesting and favorite character The world building is also very engaging with a lot of oriental an [...]


    • I really liked the writing and the concept of poets giving literal shape and form to ideas The characterization was also pretty good for most of the characters I wasn t emotionally satisfied with the ending but it wasn t enough to put me off from reading in the series.


    • I enjoyed this Not bad at all for a debut novel.It s a low magic fantasy Political industrial intrigue rather than knights and dragons.I like the city of Saraykeht and the almost oriental feel to the main culture The main language is comprised of poses and gestures that accompany words similar to the Adem hand gestures in The Wise Man s Fear.The central concept of poet s capturing ideas and then imbuing them with volition creating an enslaved god andats was interesting You would think this would [...]


    • 4.0 to 4.5 stars A very impressive debut novel While very light on fantasy elements think George R R Martin and the Song of Fire and Ice , the one major fantasy component is original and simply superb That idea is that poets create and bind ideas made flesh and control them in the use of commerce and war I was really impressed This, along with a well developed world and a great story make this a strongly recommended book.


    • Truly impressive So many novels in genre are less novels than they are the workings out of a plot but that s not the case here The characters breathe, and their moral and personal and emotional concerns are at least as vital as the clockwork of cause and effect This actually made it a bit tricky for me to orient for the first couple chapters after that phenomenal prologue I kept waiting for the adventure hook, the mystery prompt, the grand doom foretold, and when one didn t come I felt thrilled [...]


    • Executive Summary This pretty much seals it, I apparently really enjoy everything Mr Abraham writes This series likely won t be for everyone though.Audio book The sad truth is I consume far books in audio these days than in text The reviews of this series in audio has been pretty mixed towards negative, so I was leary to give it a shot.I ll say that for me Neil Shah, was an alright narrator He actually reads really well, and does a variety of voices Some of them just annoyed me Especially Seedl [...]


    • A short message before the review starts BUYING GIVES MONEY TO THE GOP MACHINE AND SUPPORTS EXPLOITATIVE EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES DON T FEED THE BEAST IF YOU RE BUYING AN EBOOK, BUY THE KOBO EDITION HERE Shadow and Betrayal and HERE Seasons of War I ll admit it, I struggled with this work and what to think of it The first two books in the quartet I really enjoyed The second two books irritated the hell out of me Nevertheless, as much as I was irritated, I half suspect that that was Abraham s intenti [...]


    • thoughts about reading sci fi fantasy I think of fantasy books in three tiers Tier 1 These are complete successes I believe the world completely, the plots zoom along and the I care about the characters as if they were friends Examples are Tolkien, the Fire and Ice series by George R R Martin, The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, and Harry Potter.Tier 2 I can t quite believe in the world, but the plot and characters are good enough to be entertaining.Tier 3 Don t believe it and don t care J D [...]


    • Glad I picked up this book from Daniel Abraham his first Be warned, it is a slow and subtle novel, and the magic isn t in your face While the book does start off in a school type setting familiar to fantasy fans, it soon passes and what is left is relatively absent of the tropes and ideas that would quickly draw in fantasy fans searching for George Martin grittiness, Brandon Sanderson magical flair, or JRR Tolkien scale.I applaud the effort, bravery, and skill it takes to do a fantasy novel like [...]


    • Completing a novel, launching it out into the world, must be a daunting thing It s no surprise that authors often take it easy on themselves the first few times, finding their feet before they launch into the deep end.Which is to say that most debut novelists do not kick off their epic fantasy tetralogy with a glacially slow, intense but distant, morally complicated multiple point of view novel about an abortion, set in a non European culture whose oddities make themselves felt in every single e [...]


    • January February 2011In her review of the second book in this series, Ceridwen threatened to send the first book to all of her friends for their birthdays Apparently the Long Price Quartet is just that good I m about to find out, because as luck would have it my birthday was on Friday and Ceridwen does not make idle threats Happy Birthday to me Happy Birthday to me indeed This is a good book This is a really good book Ignore the three star rating, that s just me being old and grouchy somehow I m [...]


    • I must admit I expected to find this story tedious, as I often do multi volume fantasy epics But I was very pleasantly surprised Daniel Abraham s world building is top tier, and his characters are complex and realistic There are no moral absolutes here, thankfullyI ve always despised broad strokes of black and white laid out to clue the reader in to good and evil This is one of my biggest pet peeves with fantasy literature in general The reader is just as likely to feel genuine empathy for a vil [...]


    • So disappointed, again I picked up this book because my heroes Connie Willis and George R R Martin, hands down my two favorite scifi fantasists writing today, had been quoted as saying generous things about this series Obviously the lesson here is to never trust blurbs, ever, even if you think the people writing them have bigger brains than you I mean, it started out well enough The first scene with Maati and the andat was hair raising in its eeriness, and I liked the idea of poetry transcribing [...]


    • Lemmed at 29%.Daniel Abraham isn t for me This is the second book I ve read by him where I couldn t get emotionally invested in the characters the other being The Dragon s Path There s nothing unlikable about them but there s nothing that makes me want to pick this book up and spend time with these people The only one I liked was Amat, a 58 year old overseer accountant but I was totally turned off after view spoiler she was beaten and called a cunt I hate that kind of stuff and it seemed so unne [...]


    • There are so many authors who fail to present a world which is unique and different from the hundreds of worlds that exist in fantasy They Fail Daniel Abraham succeeds to make his world different Unfortunately, different does not always mean better Plot Well, there isn t any I am greatly surprised how this became a quartet when there was no story to be told beyond ten pages in the first book The issue I had with this book is that it never pursues any concept faithfully It starts off as a philoso [...]


    • I picked up this book because of the laudatory blurbs from both George R.R Martin and Connie Willis.I know Abraham has co written with Martin before although this is his first solo novel, it doesn t read like a first effort in any way it s definitely engaging, above average fantasy.The world is a somewhat familiar fantasy scenario with an Asian ish flavor, but not so much so that it doesn t feel interesting and original It s set in a kingdom whose power rests on the andat powerful beings in huma [...]


    • DNF 20% I think I gave this book a fair shot, 20% is quite a long way to read and still be completely bored by the characters, world and plot.One thing that was really baffling and continually took me out of the book was the way the characters kept posing during conversations It was soooo ridiculous, there wasn t a single dialogue that didn t involve at least ten different poses They started as a pose of greeting or a pose of farewell , which I can deal with, but soon the characters were doing a [...]


    • S alright Annoyed that certain literary personages, who are apparently of some economic and narrative importance, are not under armed guard at all times Rather liked the postures gestures Had a hard time getting too interested in the nauseating adolescent lust plot, and am hoping that one of the adolescents doesn t turn out to be both a hidden monarch and a member of the pokemon master club Loved the other plot, regarding the consigliere The pokemon was slick, and the text could ve meditated on [...]



    • Per usual with Mr Abraham s work, I really enjoyed this one Clever world building and an engaging plot, the first of this series flew by Looking forward to the rest of them.


    • A Shadow in Summer has been on my to be read radar for quite a while now even though I can t quite recall exactly why I put it on the list But when Jaws Read Too began her Summer of Series program, I looked over at the first installment in the series, sitting on my to be read pile, mocking me mercilessly and decided it was a good time to commit not only to reading the first book, but also the entire Long Price Quartet series as well.So, I pulled the book out of the pile, cracked open the pages a [...]


    • Really cool world building combined with a story that I really didn t care about But the world was quite cool, did I mention that
