    J ai ador les 3 premiers livres, personnages forts et complexes, intrigue passionnante avec une mont e en puissance de l action Puis.tout retombe dans ce quatri me livre, manque d inspiration Les personnages les plus int ressants sont laiss s de c t comme Amicia , et d autres arrivent comme un cheveu dans la soupe, sans rien apporter l histoire comme Blanche L action se disperse, il ya trop d histoires parall les et Gabriel perd de son c t mordant Esp rons que le cinqui me livre sera la hauteur de cette excellente s rie.

    It was the false dawn the time when old people die, when hopes fail, and when ambuscades lose their nerve, when men call out and wives comfort them Cameron is telling one heck of a story The Plague of Swords shows just how big a story Cameron is telling Book 1 keeps it small, telling a Legend esque siege story Book 2 tells another small story, shifting venues from an England analogue to an Eastern Roman Empire analogue, while at the same time building on minor plot threads started in the first book Book 3 starts bringing all of those plot threads together for a Storm of Swords esque bang There is an inevitable letdown, but Cameron handles things considerably better than Martin did What do you do after bringing so many plot threads to a head in Book 3 You bust your world wide open.A carefully constructed structure is the best thing about The Traitor Son Cycle Well, that, and the great fight scenes And the loving attention to historical detail And the elaborate and innovative worldbuilding And the dragon demi gods A carefully constructed structure is among the many great things about The Traitor Son Cycle.The Plague of Swords opens immediately after the events of The Dread Wyrm The forces of good are beginning to see just how fragile their great victory was Their armies are depleted The emperor is dead The new alliance with forces of the Wild sits uneasily That s bogglin laughter, No Head said You like them the woman asked him The targets were moving to a hundred twenty five paces Spent most o my life killin em, No Head said But then, he said, I found they ain t so bad Forces elsewhere are under attack A new, human, plague follows the horse plague And a new, even deadly threat appears in Galle.The early plot focuses heavily on efforts to magically combat the magic plague We kind of know that this won t be the end of the series, but Cameron ratchets up the tension nonetheless, and named characters die Meanwhile, Gabriel is pushing Mr Smythe, their dragonic ally He s beginning to realize that Mr Smythe hasn t been entirely honest He s beginning to understand the scale of what s going on And he s beginning to see that their interests may not remain aligned.There is some incredible stuff, but it s tough to say too much without spoiling the book So I ll take a minute and instead talk about how great the worldbuilding is It s easy to forget how much has been added writing reviews for each book in a series But what Cameron has revealed to us is so cool and interesting and perfect that it deserves a little extra attention In the world of The Traitor Son Cycle, the Europe analogue isn t bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, it s bordered by the Wild It s the Wild that s full of bogglins and irks and wyverns and serves as almost an antagonist itself at first But while at first it resembles any number of desolate lands full of monsters in fantasy although it is the opposite of desolate , we learn that it is something as Cameron fleshes it out The hordes of monsters all have their own interests and factions The Canadian Cameron gives the Wild a distinctly Canadian feel, from its vast forests and bogs to the Amerindian esque natives to the giant beavers.Cameron adds to that in The Plague of Swords The Sahara is reimagined as the consequence of the depredations of the Necromancer What is on the other side of the desert Gabriel asked.The sultan looked south Once, there were other kingdoms, he said Now nothing comes out of the desert but the not dead Someday, perhaps We learn much about the demi godlike dragons and their role in the world Yes, there are zombies, but with a new twist and medieval zombies remain fresh to me in a way that modern zombies have long ceased to be The countries and peoples in The Traitor Son Cycle map closely to the countries and peoples in real medieval Europe and North Africa , but rather than as a crutch Cameron uses it as an opportunity to let his deep historical knowledge enrich the world and story.Oh, and Gabriel s griffon is now grown And there are sea monsters The fight scenes have always been a highlight of the series, and there have been a lot of them Cameron mixes things up a little this book The big fights are in the air or on the sea, not on land Both are absolutely fantastic.If The Plague of Swords suffers, it is from middle book ism, just a bit A lot of time is spent on infodumps for the new worldbuilding that we can expect to come to a head in the fifth and as I understand it final book in the series A lot of time is spent positioning the various armies A fair amount of action takes place off screen And the climax is a bit abrupt, especially after the extended climaxes we ve been spoiled on But these are all quibbles, and as the fourth book in a series The Plague of Swords should be judged in its role as such and as a part of the series as a whole And the series remains my favorite and has me so fired up it is influencing my current reading choices.

    I really like this series the writing is good, the characters are well drawn and there is some good humour BUT the creeping inconsistencies are really getting to me and undermining the credibility of the whole storyline yes I do know that this is a medieval swords and sorcery fantasy series Micheal s baby changes sex from a girl named Mary to a boy called Galahad Kaitlyn de Trowbray must have had the longest pregnancy in the history of mankind It is said that Ghause is 50 but Gabriel is 20 so how could she have been a chit of a girl when her brother raped her Gawin s name changes to Gavin, the Lanthorns become Lantorns This series badly needs a good editor and a consistent timeline.

    I was getting close to the end of this book, and I spent a fair bit of time considering if I could remember another series where I had no doubt that each book was better than the previous one Mr Cameron is growing in skill, learning to polish his weak spots to the point where he can pull off multiple character threads without missing a beatand have some turn out as engaging as the primary.Really can t recommend this enoughonly thing I didn t like was how I seemed to really struggle keeping names characters straight Re reading the prior books would certainly have helped, but a few timely memory nudges would have been appreciated

    I had forgotten how utterly splendid this series really is Where many series tend to jump the shark after 3 or four installments, The Traitors Sun Cycle just maintains a compelling narrative and continues to develop the characters we have all grown to love Somehow Miles Cameron takes us into the minutiea of the physical constraints of the period armor, shipboard travel etc without being dull On the contrary, the detail helps ground the fantastic elements of the story and is a constant reminder of the personal elements of the story.I will definitely buy the next book in the series BTW, I also bought the audio book version and it is a joy to listen to.

    I still love this series, and i am 100% in on buying the next book however, this one fell flat The strength of this series has been how the author has meticulously built the characters and world This one felt extremely rushed There was so much potential for the duchess, but nothing Same with the entire new land.And then there is the end What the % was that I actually went back and reread it to see if maybe i missed skipped a page because it was such a random deus ex machina ending.SpoilersSpoilersSpoilersHe usually puts so much sometimes too much detail in the spellcasting, but this time they just cast something that killed all the odine but saved the people without ever explaining how they figured it out Like i saidi still love this series and will definitely read the next one, but this one was lacking.
