I’ve been watching for The Red Queen but there is absolutely no info on the US release, other than that it’s already been published. It was released on a Thursday and I trekked to my local shopping centre to track a copy down.

Elspeth is the main character though and her story is the most important. View all 36 comments. Other books in the series.

I also had another comparison in mind, but momentarily forgotten. And you go back to put it in earlier and it was already there. It is rare that I can read over pages with so many characters and not complain about either of those things. I remember reading the first book thinking that it’s okay.

There was kernels of interesting ideas here. January 28, at Okay, here we go.

The Red Queen

In finishing such an epic saga there will always be questions I think and those little things that you wonder about. Thoughts will arrive eventually. I still love this story and the characters. Originally published in Australia as The Wrong Thing, the book features an ordinary housecat who stumbles upon something otherworldly.


So thank you, Ms Carmody because despite giving me a book I’d like to wipe out rfd my mind forever, you did take me on an amazing journey. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

The Red Queen, by Isobelle Carmody. All I wanted was for him to have a happy ending and we’re left hanging! The exciting part of the book What am I going to do with my life now?!

The last pages of the page ebook version were excellent. And I’ll only be 37 by then!!! For a long time, all I knew of Isobelle Carmody was the postage stamp-sized photo on the back covers of her long-running dystopian fantasy series, the Obernewtyn Chronicles. So far, I have only read up to the end of Part One.

Where can I find it? While Ariel’s ending was satisfying and deserved, there was also no menace left in his role by the time they arrived at the city. Elspeth was such a rare mc that was not a mary sue or obsessed with boys at any cost. While I have always and probably always will love this series with a passion, the quality went remarkably downhill from book five onward.

She says her daughter Adelaide accused her of modelling Elspeth camrody herself, something Carmody vigorously denied. When I started reading the second than third sequels, I started really falling in love with the story. Notify me of new posts via email.

Also, Lidgebaby as the Destroyer, isn’t that an odd anticlimax. A deep sense of compassion and respect for animals and the land pervades the Obernewtyn Chronicles, weaving in animal characters into the story who become just as important as the human ones.

Mostly I felt irritated, unsurprised, bored or disengaged. Like remember when Elspeth fell asleep thru a plot point which was been brewing since book 4? The only thing that stopped me was the fact that I could imagine this giant tome of a book doing some damage to whatever it collided with.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I want him to have a life that he deserves! They use words that are pronounced exactly the same, yet are written differently enough that carnody know you’re not in the same world.

Matthew and Rushton in particular. There were too many threads to follow – it was like I got thrusted into a brand new world even considering the fact that I’m an avid reader of the first six books.

My only other complaint is that there was too little Rushton in this novel. Has all her sacrifice been in vain?
