If that sounds interesting, it's not. It's just all so slow because you keep having to jump to each separate group to progress another 2 minutes. As the reader you know SOME of what some of the groups don't know yet but it not enough to tell you diddly squat about what's really going on. In short, it's annoying and boring as hell. I can't even bring myself to keep reading and I'm only halfway through. Not sure when this series turned from something I really enjoyed to this, but it's sad.
I greatly loved the first series of the Noble Dead books but haven't much enjoyed the second series since Wynn took over as main character. Though Leesil and Magiere are back in this book, sadly, it's just a miserable mash of too many character and not enough actual plot.

The plot has become more intricate. The characters more interesting and fleshed out. I liked the many different points of view and the different motives. I know a lot of people were not crazy about the last three books about Wynn, but I liked them even more than many of the others. Originally I didn't really care for Wynn very much, but she grew on me and is now one of my favorite characters in the series.
I think one reason I enjoyed reading abou I think this series just gets better and better. I think one reason I enjoyed reading about Wynn and Chane for a while was because, for me there was too much bickering between Magiere and Leesil. I'm not saying they were unhappy, but their issues and the way they reacted to each other just grated on my nerves at times.
It was just a nice change of pace to read about something else. I'm not sure how I feel about Osha joining them. There is a love square that has developed now and I'm not too crazy about that idea, but overall Between Their Worlds is a good edition to the series. Dec 17, Jenifer rated it really liked it. This first installment to series 3 sees the return of Magiere, Leesil, and Chap as they return to the Guild of Sagecraft for their friend Wynn.
However, things are not as they thought at the guild and they soon learn that Wynn has not been idly sitting at the guild waiting, she has been very busy indeed. The problem most people seem to have with this book is that it doesn't move the plot forward. In a way this is true, and in a way it is not.
The traditional sense of plot movement is not found i This first installment to series 3 sees the return of Magiere, Leesil, and Chap as they return to the Guild of Sagecraft for their friend Wynn. The traditional sense of plot movement is not found in this book because it serves as a a bridge "between their worlds.
So, this book is the catalyst to the forward progression in the following books and is definitely necessary -- or else people would be whining that the reunion was too simple and boring and things jumped forward too fast. Now, the book does contribute to forward progression in a way -- again, not int he traditional sense. As I said, it is a book that serves as the meeting point of two story lines and was necessary to have Magiere, Leesil, and Chap learn what Wynn has discovered so that they CAN progress forward.
In a more supporting role way, this book does help with the forward momentum of the story. I will admit, it isn't the most exciting of the Noble Dead books. But, then again, there were books in the original series I thought were weaker than the others -- especially in a long series, they all can't be high intensity all the time In that regard, this books serves its purpose well. Lastly, I think the bottom line for a lot of people is that the book didn't take the direction they wanted it to take.
Even I have to admit some disappointment on a few matters because they didn't go how I wanted them to. Overall I think this book is, without a doubt, necessary to the saga. I believe that the ultimate opinion of each reader will be based on how strong his or her preconceived ideas about what the book will entail are.
Obviously we will all have things we want to happen based on which characters we like best -- I like Wynn and Chane -- that we will or won't like. Regardless of the things that happened that I hoped wouldn't, this is still a book that deserves a read because it does, in fact, help knit the story lines together.

This was a fairly nice beginning to the continued exploits of Magiere, Leesil, and Chap as they continue in their quest to thwart The Ancient Enemy. Because they have been separated from Wynn for more than a year this book acts as a bridge to bring them back together and combine their stories before they are separated again. Wynn is no longer the wide eyed observer she was in the beginning and has grown into a woman of strength, which annoys her previous companions. She has allowed a Nobel Dead, This was a fairly nice beginning to the continued exploits of Magiere, Leesil, and Chap as they continue in their quest to thwart The Ancient Enemy.
She has allowed a Nobel Dead, Chane, to protect her and work along beside her. Since Magiere had killed him and hates him as does Chap and Leesil they feel as if she has betrayed them. The story centers around the guild of sage craft and the fact that they have locked Wynn in her room and the grounds.
Things are complicated and scattered because you have multiple factions working for multiple goals throughout the book and sometimes it is hard to figure out what is going on from minute to minute. This is not a place to start this saga if you have not read the previous novels as the characters from many of those novels converge here. Not a lot of action but the story does move us to the next step and allows us to become reacquainted with fiends who have been absent for so long.
If you like this series then it is a must read. Mar 06, L. Doggett rated it really liked it. This one is a solid four stars. By Barb and J. The world it takes place in is well designed with most of what you would expect from a fantasy series yet with twists on the troupes and character types. Vampires do feed on the blood of humans, or any creature, but there are not crosses or holy water to harm them. The best, and perhaps only way, to kill one is to chop off This one is a solid four stars. The best, and perhaps only way, to kill one is to chop off its head.
Yet there is a ritual to fix that, so you burn the body. They were created in an ancient war to destroy life: humans, elves, dwarves , etc. There are other forms of the Noble Dead but they all feed on the life source of the living. Dwarves are much the same even though there is a group who learn how to travel through stone and dirt as if they were not there. Their honored dead are placed against stalagmites to allow the process that forms stalagmites to encase them in stone coffins over time. Elves live in cities formed in forests and act like humans at times.
The fae here are more spectral and can join up with puppies to form unique beings. The series is broken up into three sections dealing with different characters and purposes. At this stage they trying to find five unique weapons used in the same ancient war that created vampires and to hide them from the same being who declared war on the living. The series is dark yet the writing is excellent; people die, allies have strong negative emotions, the past comes along to bite the characters at the worse times.
Actions scenes are described meticulously, the authors get into the psychic of each of the characters so you know what they are thinking and why. The plot flows along in a good order. At times it is a touch confusing with all of the characters who disappear than come back books later and many of whom are in action at the same moment. Yet they add suspense and substance to the plot. The authors give the readers twists and unique situations so the books do not get boring. I also have a problem with all of the negative emotions on display.
Groups who should be joining forces hate each other or are too picky to become true allies. Wynn-one of the main Characters-spends a good portion of her time scared or crying for a number of reasons yet she can be stubborn, in a good way, as well as brave and determined. She gets the job done. I still recommend this book-it keeps me reading it even with what I feel are negatives. You need to though read the ones before it.
You could very well be able to get what is happening and why and who the diverse characters are if you read this one as a stand alone but it would be more enjoyable and easier to read if you start at the beginning.

Hendee, Wynn is reunited with Magiere, Leesil, and Chap after a long time--three books, an entire arc--apart, but it doesn't last long.
The Guild of Sagecraft quickly discovers and ejects Magiere, Leesil, and Chap while confining Wynn to her room, keeping her imprisoned.

Wynn thinks that despite this she has to stay with the sages for the chance to access to the guild's archives to try to figure out the locations of the last two Orbs. However, both her series one and series two groups of compatriots want to break her out.
Magiere, Leesil, and Chap run into unexpected people from their past, many of them with mysteries of their own, while Chane is aware those three are in town, hates them about as much as they hate him, and wants to get Wynn out without running into them. Everyone's plans will start to conflict Meanwhile, what is the Guild of Sagecraft up to? The beginning is rather rocky, as almost everyone has a moment of looking back on who they are and why they're there and Magiere, Leesil, and Chap keep giving what the authors probably think are tantalizing hints about their own trip to find one of the Orbs.
You won't get more than some hints of that in Between Their Worlds , which makes the characters' behaviors, after effects of what happened there, mystifying. They're all very short-tempered: Magiere has lost almost all self-control she used to have and seems almost perpetually angry, Lessil is lacking almost all of his charm, and Chap is a judgmental pill. They mostly stomp about obnoxious, childish, and entitled, throwing tantrums when they don't get what they want, which is what keeps happening here. Wynn seems far more mature than they are these days.
At least the story becomes involving once it settles down to dealing with its own plot and generates a lot of tension, especially when everyone's plans take place within the same tight window of time. I'm definitely intrigued enough by new developments to read the next book, The Dog in the Dark , though I'm actually not looking forward to eventually finding out the backstory on Magiere, Leesil, and Chap's quest given the massive negative impression they leave in Between Their Worlds.
At least they'll have [spoiler character] with them for the next book. Apr 25, E. Chane and Shade the majay-hi daughter of Chap continue to support Wynn and find themselves unexpectedly in closer proximity than either is particularly comfortable with. The conflicting goals of the disparate groups may prevent any and all from achieving any degree of success but that will not keep Wynn from her dogged pursuit of enlightenment. Another complex tale that continues to encompass an intricate world of scholars, vampires, elves, dwarves, dog-like fay creatures and many other wonders.
There are a few jarring notes, particularly with respect to Chap and his daughter odd for him to be so introspective and descriptive of his motives as well as the relationship between Leesil and Magiere and minimal actual progress is accomplished in this volume. Well written but somewhat disappointing to me.

This is the tenth book of the series and I've read and own all of the books. I love, love, love this series I've been reading and rereading the books since However, the last couple of books starring Wynn as the main protagonist has been a little bit of a let down.
I guess I wasn't expecting what the "sister" series involving Wynn was going to be like. The last three books make me nastalgic toward the ones earlier in the series. I loved Dhampir through Child of a Dead God, but the more boo This is the tenth book of the series and I've read and own all of the books.
I loved Dhampir through Child of a Dead God, but the more books where Leesil and Margiere are out of the picture the more I wish they would come back and bring some action into the story. Perhaps, the authors would have just written the book about Leesil, Chap, and Margiere and just do a recap of Wynn's story when they saw her again not the other way around. I've read this book, obviously, and I know they come back into the story line but I feel like this book has been a complete filler book of the series.
And I hate that, I wait every year for the next book and this one I have to say has been a let down compared to the others. First, the book literally happens over the course of a few days, which isn't a bad thing but compared to the other books story line doesn't really make sense. Second, there are so many people perspectives that are represented in the book that it's dizzying. And to recognize who they are and what there part is in the overall series is daunting. Lastly, all they pretty much do is break Wynn out of the keep and in the end she goes back anyways?!? I was so annoyed when I finished the end of the book.
No orb searching, no demon slaying, nothing. In this book they barely bring up the orb or the Wastes that they traveled to that change Margiere and where they found the orb. I didn't like this book very much because I felt like there should have been a lot more that happens in the tenth book of the series. I love the authors and the series so I'm going to keep buying the books every January, hoping for more action.
End of Rant. Oct 02, Joe Aguiar rated it liked it. Worlds takes place directly after "Of Truth And Beasts" and features the return of Magiere, Leesil and Chap and the beginnings of a quest to find the last two ancient orbs. And while I still liked Worlds, it is one of the weakest chapters in this epic as the book is all set up for the stories to come and as such, not very much happens till the last few chapters. During this time we find Magiere and co. And once Wynn is finally free, we now have our beloved characters at odds as the presence of Wynn's vampire friend Chane becomes known to the vampire hunters Magiere, Leesil and Chap, his mortal enemies.
The rest of the book finds them trying to form an uneasy alliance as the greater task lies at hand. Again I did enjoy Worlds but,there is a lot of melodrama. Leesil, Magiere and Chap have all changed by what happened to them while they were away, there is drama between the Elves, drama between the City Guard and the Guild, drama between Chap and his daughter Shade, drama between her friends and Chane, and a potential love triangle between Wynn, Chane and the elf Osha.
It is starting to resemble a Twilight book instead of a Noble Dead story. But, we do love these characters despite their current differences and Barb and J. Hendee do write so well. So, to an extent we go along with the story but, I just hope the coming stories return to the action to offset all the dramatics. Sep 16, Lisa King rated it liked it Shelves: liked-it-but-not-great.
