  1. Michael Manning was born in Cleveland, Texas and spent his formative years there, reading fantasy and science fiction, concocting home grown experiments in his backyard, and generally avoiding schoolwork.Eventually he went to college, starting at Sam Houston State University, where his love of beer blossomed and his obsession with playing role playing games led him to what he calls his best year ever and what most of his family calls the lost year.Several years and a few crappy jobs later, he decided to pursue college again and was somehow accepted into the University of Houston Honors program we won t get into the particulars of that miracle This led to a degree in pharmacy and it followed from there that he wound up with a license to practice said profession.Unfortunately, Michael was not a very good pharmacist Being relatively lawless and free spirited were not particularly good traits to possess in a career focused on perfection, patient safety, and the letter of the law Nevertheless, he persisted and after a stint as a hospital pharmacy manager wound up as a pharmacist working in correctional managed care for the State of Texas.He gave drugs to prisoners.After a year or two at UTMB he became bored and taught himself entirely too much about networking, programming, and database design and administration At first his supervisors warned him repeatedly to do his assigned tasks and stop designing programs to help his coworkers do theirs, but eventually they gave up and just let him do whatever he liked since it seemed to be generally working out well for them.Ten or eleven years later and he got bored with that too So he wrote a book We won t talk about where he was when he wrote The Blacksmith s Son , but let s just assume he was probably supposed to be doing something else at the time.Some people liked the book and told other people Now they won t leave him alone.After another year or two, he decided to just give up and stop pretending to be a pharmacist programmer, much to the chagrin of his mother who had only ever wanted him to grow up to be a doctor and had finally become content with the fact that he had settled on pharmacy instead.Michael s wife supported his decision, even as she stubbornly refused to believe he would make any money at it It turned out later that she was just telling him this because she knew that nothing made Michael contrary than his never ending desire to prove her wrong Once he was able to prove said fact she promptly admitted her tricky ruse and he has since given up on trying to win.Today he lives at home with his stubborn wife, teenage twins, a giant moose poodle, two yorkies, a green cheeked conure, a massive prehistoric tortoise, and a head full of imaginary people There are also some fish, but he refuses to talk about them Sign Up for Email Updates

  2. yes so far I m one of the only 2 people to give this book a 1 star.Why, because I did not like it Most of my dislike was based on subjective things related to characters Spoilers aheadDanielHaving taken a 10 year break from fighting presumably doing nothing but eating grapes and frolicking in the trees he is even full of rage and self loathing He is 35 years old and he still acts like he did in the past but now he communicates in nothing but grunts and growls for which Alex Wyndham gave him a j [...]

  3. I was disappointed in this book Im not gonna say it was bad because it wasnt but it was lacking The series went from being fresh and interesting in the first book to just a standard fantasy with his anger flared and the love he cant forget It gets old real fast and despite the author telling us otherwise in his introduction, the story s basically about a standard hero with a few skellies and hard time in his baggage 10 years has passed since we saw Tyrion last time, meaning he is around 30 Appar [...]

  4. I finished this in triple quick time I don t remember reading a book this quickly I was expecting it to take at least a week, given my busy schedule and my relatively low reading speed of late The only book I remember to have invoked strong emotions in me is Faith of the Fallen The Silent Tempest did than just that It made me sit and think, really think The story isn t particularly plot based It s focused on the characters Characters that accurately reflect human behaviour our fears, flaws, lo [...]

  5. Michael s writing continues to mature, and I enjoyed this book so much I immediately re read it Apart from developing Tyrion s character into a realistic and conflicted person, the characterisation of his children is very good There s a real sense of them as different people Underlying the main plot is a very clever secondary narrative, which deals with the aftermath and consequences of colonisation, showing that even when the colonisers realise how horrifically they have behaved, this cannot e [...]

  6. The Silent Tempest is a wonderful addition to Manning s world In this series we find out the hidden reasons that dominate so much of his other books It is not an easy read, content, although the writing is gentle and in places very beautiful Learning about the events that led to the Blacksmith s son is the reason these books exist, but they are not history tomes, nor supplements They stand fully alone as very good stories in their own right They add greater depth and emotion to the already deep [...]

  7. Couldn t put it down.I was thinking about this book during my work day Seriously how good is a book when you obsess about how soon you ll be able to pick it up again The answer is really GOOD

  8. I m giving this book a 4.5 it was great but just it was a little to short and just slightly not as good as book 1.

  9. As with most books its tough to maintain the pace and narrative when you move from the main protagonist to add multiple new people into the plot In this case, its the offspring and Kate who come back into the picture And its handled pretty well all things considered But now we are primarily reading to know the ending rather than the tale really being gripping All in all still recommended.

  10. This book really could ve been five stars The only reason why is because I m not necessarily in love with any of the characters The main character I admired in the first book wore off on me Although he is very loyal, he s a bit too rough for me Daniel has a mini harem going on and I think Illy is preggers too Obviously his brood is his army and I can t wait to read the next book Bravo

  11. Mixed feeling about this book It was gut wrenching, the situation with danials kidsough I no longer feel sympathy for him A lot of things were forced on him, but not all things We got a number of him female victims 27 women he raped 27 he used his mind control powers on, an many he impregnated, shattering their lives one even killed herself Danial is strong though so nobody can truly punish him, in the end he just brushes past it, with the help of Kate.Kate, her character was supposed the typica [...]

  12. The story itself was enjoyable with a few annoyances that did take me out of my immersion in it I listened to the Audiobook, and did not read the book itself.Slight spoilers ahead.What ruined my immersion the most was the level self loathing the main character has This trait was shown in The Mountain s Rise, but it was not nearly so prominent and it felt like a method to emphasize the changes that Daniel had gone through as a result of the cruel treatment from his masters In The Silent Tempest [...]

  13. The second book of the Illeniel loses a little of that raw edge and desperation that made the first so great It gains of the emotional turmoil that am I a bad guy or am i just doing what i must, which marred the first Don t get me wrong emotional impact is a must in a gripping read but someone spending 40 years figuring out he isn t to blame for making the best of the conditions his masters impose on him is a little tiresome.It s still a good book There is plenty of action, although its a littl [...]

  14. Nice flowThis is a five star book for me I really like the structure and flow Kind of short chapters, and third person narrative which I usually don t like that much made this series very addictive For me, a movie with subtitles makes me take a lot in, because I have to read it and can t zone out this book for me was like a movie with subtitles Glad that s cleared up I still don t see the terrible, seemingly irredeemable traits in any characters that some other reviewers have mentioned sure, no [...]

  15. reaping the harvestTyrion s children are in danger from the groves his unparalleled success in the arena has shown them that there are better ways to get excellent barratti as Tyrion races to Colne to gather his brood, he is fully aware that life with him will be a horror but perhaps as slaves of the Illeniel grove and with his training, a few might survive.Michael continues to relate the history of the house of Illeniel with all it s pain and love characters are easily accessible, locations are [...]

  16. Great Story I m not gonna wax and wane on about the merits of this well told tale, there are plenty of others who will write a dissertation for you What I am gonna say is I wish I could have read this series before the Mageborn series I have absolutely loved everything about these first two books and anxiously await the final book in 2016 If you are a newcomer to Michael Manning then you are lucky and have so many hours of great reading ahead of you Me, I think I ll go back and re read the last [...]

  17. Michael just outdid himself on this one Tyrion is a total badass The story is beautifully written and flows smoothly Although it ends in a cliffhanger considering we already know how the future will play out it just want one to be directly transported to 2016 when the next part in the series is expected.Ps pleasantly surprised by this work because thornbear made me believe that the authors quality was decreasing.

  18. Listened to the audio version Couldn t put it down.Overall This whole series is one of the best I ve read in 2017 This particular book was a brilliant second act with equal parts tragedy and triumph It s dark, but touching It s exciting, but tragic Those who love dark fantasy should check out all of Manning s work.Full review on my blog at mlsweech.wordpress 2017 0

  19. Bloody Brilliant book fantastic I honestly couldn t put this down My Priorities in the world had suddenly changed until i had got this book finished.I only wish it was longer and that the next book was available.

  20. loving the story and the book so far on of my favorite books sometimes the characters can seem a bit simple, but the story is so fun and interesting that i don t really mind that minor flaw let s get this book 3 going Mike.

  21. I love this series read Marylebone 1 5 Thornbury and then embers of millennial 1 2 Now I have to wait an e entire year for the next book Love this series Couldn t put it down

  22. Long wait startsWell I finished Book 2 This story really is good, however, the wait for the next installment will drive me crazy If you liked the Mageborn book get these and learn a lot .

  23. Solid second bookSlow start, but finished strong Looking forward to book 3 I have enjoyed all the books by Manning to this point

  24. Great easy readEnjoyed the story, thought that the ending, where the other groves attacked, was really sudden and confused me for a moment All in all though great story.

  25. As typical with Michael G Manning, this book does not disappoint It pulls you right in, then refuses to let you go It s going to be a MISERABLY long wait for the next book.

  26. HOLY COW do I love this series I couldn t stop listening and found excuses to get in an extra 5 10 minutes as much as possible My only complaint is that the third book is not out yet

  27. Good follow up to mountain rising Love the booksI enjoyed the mountain rising better Its really good book no the less.Must read for fantasy readers Have fun
