THE WARS OF LIGHT AND SHADOW by HOST OF VASTMARK VOLUME TWO of Ships of. HarperPrism An Imprint of HarperPaperbacks. For Jane Johnson, for the grand leap of faith thanks is too small a word. The fact that this volume of the story grew too large to bind into one. paperback was in no way an effort to wring more out of a series, or to prolong the natural length to make the project more lucrative.

The Mistwraith's curse of vengeance has locked two princes into an ever deeper pattern of enmity. Since the deception and betrayal which ended Ships of Merior, their struggle has widened to encompass the fates of the world.

Lysaer, Prince of Light--committed to serving justice, deeply bitter over the total destruction of his fleet, he lacks the means to transport his vast warhost, but swears he will still capture Arithon, defenseless in his shipyard at the seaside village of Merior...

Arithon, Master of Shadow--set back since the fire which has damaged the vessels he built to escape into freedom, he has no choice but to attempt the impossible: to so one ship launched before Lysaer's warhost can corner him, or to raise up a counterforce and meet on a field at a ruinous cost in bloodshed.

  • I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder in this case. Clearly Ms. Wurts has a great career as a writer and I acknowledge that. For me personally, her prose is to flowery for my liking. I find myself skimming the verbose descriptions of trivial settings and situations to get to some meat. This book could be cut by 1/3 and I'd find it more to my liking. As I said, it's a personal choice and not intended otherwise. The story, albeit over drawn in detail, is quite good. The plot excellent. And the characters an interesting mix of personalities and personal challenges. I did finish the book and went to read the others (I bought all 3 at the same time).

  • I thought my review of The Ships of Merior would be inadequate, but I feel even more that way now, after finishing the direct sequel. While the division between the two books was done in such a way that they individually satisfy, Warhost really brought the whole 1100 page sequence to a grand conclusion.

    The two books together serve as Arc II of Janny's huge epic, The Wars of Light and Shadow. Originally intended as a single volume, the work was split into two. The division gives a reader a chance to pause between the books, though I for one found myself diving right into Warhost. What it did do was eliminate the trademark double climax of other Wurts novels, unless we put them back together and consider the two books with the climaxes at the end of each volume. As such, it works, delivering with a bang after lots of buildup.

    I gave this one 5 stars while the first part I gave 4. I'm adding a star here because of the way it brings the whole of Arc II nicely together. Without spoiling anything, I will say that the end of Warhost of Vastmark satisfies. What's more, it sets the stage for Arc III and leaves at least this reader salivating for more of the world of Athera.

  • After reading the latest book in this series for the 2nd time, it seemed like I should reread them all from the beginning. Janny Wurts writing style alone is captivating enough to draw the reader back again and again. Sometimes I go back over a passage a couple of times, just to appreciate how she makes words work for her. She is an exceptional story teller. The stories within the " story", the magic, the need to save the Land, the love stories , the mysticism of the Korani and the Wardens of the Earth, all flow together in a steady but ever changing stream of mounting tension, headed towards I am guessing a magnificent end when the Paravians return.
    I have read science fiction fantasy since the Thomas Covenant epic of the late 1970s, Janny Wurts is one of the best writers to tell a story in these past 30 plus years. This series is well worth the time spent immersed in another world, which so parallels our Earth in many ways.

  • With a hundred pages left in this book and in the midst of an admittedly well-written battle scene I must admit to having to put this book down and being unable to pick it back up for weeks. One particular thread of the storyline is frustrating me to no end and I'm finding that it decidedly detracts from my enjoyment of the book (and series) as a whole. It could very well be that it bothers only me and someone else wouldn't bat an eye at my particular qualm.

    I loved the first book. It intrigued me, it hooked and absorbed me and then it left me upset and heartbroken that the brothers that had become friends were once again enemies. I think that is why i'm having such a hard time now. Wurts treatment of Lysear I find extremely hard to read. He is supposed to be the villain and I guess he is -but the dynamics are just hard to swallow (for me). His own goodness and sense of justice is used against him - making him appear as a misguided tyrant - which essentially, I guess he is. It just bothers me okay :) I liked him. Spoiler alert****** Wurts, through Arithon, takes away two very important people from Lysear in this book - one by death and the other in a very different manner. Arithon is always given the upper hand and to top it all off he has the Fellowship sorcerers on his side.

    And I do like Arithon too. He is very compelling and has some great moments in this book (often at Lysears expense - hence my conflicting frustration). Wurts gives deeper insight into Arithon from not just his POV but from many around him. Wurts expects us I believe to root for Arithon and I do up to a certain point. It's hard to root for Lysear as that means destruction and death, which ends up happening anyways - if to a lesser degree. But what's hard to read is how desh-their's curse is twisting Lysear who has no means to fight it and is made out the villian, while Arithon is set up as the conflicted martyr and hero and is given so much more compassion from the author (unintended pun there).

    That said - I will of course continue to read as I just can't help myself. The plight of these two brothers and all drawn into their cursed emnity is too compelling to just give up the remainder of the series. One of the best parts of this book for me was the eventual and grudging respect that Dakar formed for Arithon. He truly is Arithon's man now - but it was a long and reluctant journey for him. Dakar's character runs hot and cold for me - you like him for a minute and then you don't - but he appears to have greatly matured from when we first met him in 'Mistwraith.' Over all - the book is well written and continues the story seamlessly. Worth reading for sure.

  • This book begins with action at the very start. The Fellowship find themselves underpowered, but still have to meet the initial onslaught of an investigation by the same source that invaded all those years prior - another faction of the mistwraith.
    But this is just a side battle in the preparation for something much grander as Arithon finds he cannot run from his half-brother forever.
    This book ends a series of wars between the Light (Lysaer) and Shadow (Arithon), but the story continues. At this point the plots are still thick and alliances are constantly changing as truth and knowledge become available to those participating on the various sides.
    Janny does not come out and say that this side is good and this side is evil. Instead, she paints a picture defining the characteristics of all involved and leaves that up to you.
    The depth of this book continues with the others, but is not as able to stand alone as the others, simply because it was originally to be part of Ships of Merior. When that book became too large, Warhost of Vastmark took a life of its own. This is not to say it is wanting because it continues in the grand tradition that Janny set forth in her previous books in this series.
