the Cradle series came crashing down on me again I tried to prolong the enjoyment by keeping myself occupied with things to do, to avoid finishing the book too quickly Alas, it barely lasted 36 hours from the time I received the download from my pre order This was the first time I had to wait for a Cradle book release and the experience of coming back to the world, and its characters felt wonderful On hindsight, I believed that I might not have done sufficient justice to the previous five books which I ve finished reading on a frantic binge Having some time to absorb and digest each book fully could have made the initial read even better Sidenote I ve upgraded Blackflame to 5 stars.In each book thus far, Will Wight kept upping the stakes in line with the power advancements or upgrades in the sacred arts The rank of Underlord transcends beyond Truegold on a whole new level of mastery altogether Given this, the final step to becoming an Underlord cannot be achieved through hard training and spirit enhancing elixirs alone It comes from something evenprofound and what ensued in this book hence was a level of character development that sealed my absolute investment for all the main characters Lindon is the main protagonist from the very beginning, but it took me quite some time to thoroughly warm up to him I m so glad that I genuinely enjoy his story now a part of this was primarily nurtured by his relationship with his co mentor, Orthos Yerin remained as badass as ever, and I loved the touch of vulnerability which emerged from her character arc in this book Meanwhile, Mercy finally had her backstory fleshed out, and it was fascinating My latest favourite character had to be Dross a unique entity that Lindon stumbled upon in Ghostwater, which turned out to be instrumental to Lindon s progress Dross injected evenhumour into the story, which previously was almost monopolised by the melodramatic and irrepressible Eithan, who s still a firm favourite Oh, and how can I not mention the adorable Little Blue I cannot commend Wight enough for the worldbuilding and magic system he created for Cradle While the story primarily took place in the world of Cradle, we get epic accounts of what was happening in the cosmos as supreme beings of power battle across the planets and stars Within Cradle itself, one could appreciate the size and complexity of the world, with its many political factions, empires, clans and cults, all which some way or another were dictated by the most powerful sacred artists in the world, the Monarchs In the many years of reading epic fantasy, I have had my exposure to extraordinary sorcerous powers, but I have yet to come across one so well conceived as a magic cum martial arts system This statement excludes anime manga and gaming since I cannot speak with any authority in this arena The power of the sacred arts is unapologetically insane But at the same time, there are also distinct rules behind these arts I was astounded with the many different paths and techniques that the author managed to conjure Don t forget, each Path has its Striker, Enforcer, Ruler and Forger techniques, and each upgrade in rank unlocks eventechniques available to the sacred artist And then, there are natural treasures as well as Soulsmithed constructs made from Remnants and bindings which harness vital aura It was ingenious madness, and I had mad fun reading it Another sidenote It could be just me being a mega fan of Brandon Sanderson, I can t help noticing several nods to The Stormlight Archive in this novel The ending of each Cradle book always alluded to an evenepic instalment to come, and Underlord was no exception Its Epilogue is the best in the series so far in building up for the next book, which is titled Uncrowned What differentiated Underlord from most of its predecessors was that it has the most well balanced narrative Amazing action scenes are a given, but we also get emotional and contemplative moments And while I laughed quite lot throughout the book, I also teared up during a particularly poignant scene By now, I ve known and accepted that there will be manybooks on the horizon to complete the arc that Lindon s journey will take him, especially with Eithan s grand plan in mind I was informed that Wight mentioned twelve books in total Strangely though, I am excited with this prospect, as I really cannot get enough of this series The author had been able to churn out the Cradle books regularly I surmised that he was able to do this by making each book relatively short by fantasy standards , and just enough to wrap up the requisite plotline to ensure consistent progression and advancement for our characters to get the story to where it needs to be for a resoundingly epic conclusion.If what I ve described fit your idea of a great read, I highly recommend this series Even though it seemed like we re only halfway through, these books were quite short and so fun that rereading wouldn t be a chore At least, it won t be for me What I am suggesting is don t wait to start Cradle because you are missing out on some seriously cool and awesome entertainment.You can purchase the book fromUS You can also find this, and my other reviews at Novel Notions. Shut up and take my I simply love this series I can t put it down I was going to go slow and I can t stop.There s little way to talk about book 6 with Spoilers soSpoilers 1st, I have a huge question Jumping from Gold to Underlord is supposed to be the most difficult to bridge I have to ask, is Eithan really only an Underlord I think he s hiding something He hasn t advanced this whole time and he s so amazing that I can t see him not making Overlord by this point He is probably higher and pretends to be I simply love this series I can t put it down I was going to go slow and I can t stop.There s little way to talk about book 6 with Spoilers soSpoilers 1st, I have a huge question Jumping from Gold to Underlord is supposed to be the most difficult to bridge I have to ask, is Eithan really only an Underlord I think he s hiding something He hasn t advanced this whole time and he s so amazing that I can t see him not making Overlord by this point He is probably higher and pretends to be Underlord That is what I m thinking Even if he s not, he needs to jump up a level too He should be able to level up I m so curious about him.I could useabout this world andabout these characters Dig in and let s see some human connection besides simply fighting and fighting At this point, I love the rise of Yerin and Lindon, but it s difficult to believe that they can rise this fast when most mortals are not I know the story gives plausible ways to show them advance, but it just seems that other people would do the same Still, I love it and I am disappointed if Lindon doesn t level up each book.So, the Akura Sage, Charity, invites to weak parts of her kingdom who never go to this famous tournament because they are too weak, to come to her special valley with all these resources and there they can advance their youngs ones to overlord It s inside a portal of somekind We learn why Mercy left home and why she is de powered We meet new villains They are Underlords fighting Truegolds and it makes them look real slimy and weak We know by the end of this spring, our heroes will be Underlords and it s so exciting to see how it happens The Skysworn finally accept them and stop persecuting them At the end of the story, Lindon does make Underlord, but he is recruited to be on the Akura team for the tournament and she will have to compete against Yerin It s a sad parting We do see that Eithan is going to be in the tournament as well I still think he needs to advance to stay ahead of his students, but anyway My favorite part of the story is a few pages at the end when we are back in sacred Valley and we see Lindon s sister again who is only a Jade and advanced for that valley She runs into Orthos, the turtle and we see them about to fight together I wantof that I want to see the reaction when Orthos tells Lindon s family that he made it to Gold and was about to advance to Underlord I want to see the amazement on their faces and hear what they say Some crazy stuff is going down with Suriel, the Abideon I assume she is like some angel type figure on the path I don t really understand what s going on, but I guess we will Will was putting these out 2 times a year and now he is down to 1x a year I don t want to have to wait and they are so short I wish it was still 2 times a year because I hate having to wait when you are in a series There are problems with this and it s not perfect, but it sure is entertaining and I love it I want to finish this up I am having the most fun reading this story right now It s like a DAn Brown book, I simply can t stop with them Well, next is the tournament and I have heard that the book ends in the middle of it, so I don t know if I should start it or not I wonder how muchhe will advance Is Suriel going to ask him and his crew to join the Abideon Will Lindon become a Monarch We only know of a fewlevels He has to go to Overlord, Archlord or Sage, then Herald and finally Monarch We don t know anything about a Monarch and they are powerful enough they can change reality and create pocket worlds We still don t know what is going to threaten Sacred VAlley, probably a dreadgod and how will Lindon save them all I can t wait to find all this stuff out.I do wish there wasin this andcharacter development The pacing can be too fast at times and I wantThese books could be 500 pages for me I will probably start the next one even if I should wait The name of this book and what it suggests is killing me with anticipation.After reading Honestly I m relieved I was worried that something would go wrong and I wouldn t like it, but it s even better than I thought it would be I m not going to do a real review, but I might after rereading it a few times All the stuff below will be random thoughts and stream of consciousness stuff Don t expect quality.Questions view spoiler Are Jai Long and his sister at the Sacred Valley yet I don The name of this book and what it suggests is killing me with anticipation.After reading Honestly I m relieved I was worried that something would go wrong and I wouldn t like it, but it s even better than I thought it would be I m not going to do a real review, but I might after rereading it a few times All the stuff below will be random thoughts and stream of consciousness stuff Don t expect quality.Questions view spoiler Are Jai Long and his sister at the Sacred Valley yet I don t think the epilogue said anything about that Answer Last fall, two young outsiders had torn through the Heaven s Glory School, breaking their way into Sacred Valley They were still at large somewhere, hiding just as she was Also, it probably doesn t make sense for Lindon to go back home until at least after the tournament But I really want to see his family hometown s reaction to the fact that he could easily conquer the entire Valley To answer my own question, The tournament does not allow anyone below or above Underlord , Charity said though advancements during competition are allowed All competitors must be younger than 35 Now I wonder how likely it is that Lindon will advance during the competition If he s going to spend a few months training with the Akura s he ll probably be at least halfway to Overlord by the time the tournament starts.Also, the next book or two has a great setup to becharacter driven rather than advancement driven Yeren being separated from Lindon AGAIN after they ve made some relatively big strides in their relationship is killer I also really want to see how Lindon stacks up to Jai Long and Eithan AND Naru Gwei now It would be hilarious if he could kick Naru Gwei s ass He s always punched above his weight class He spent most of this book crushing Truegolds and standing against Underlords Could he at least almost fight an Overlord now What s Orthos up to We can assume he ll start training Lindon s sister, but what else And finally, what kind of terrible, agonizing, wonderful development will Lindon go through under his revenge training with the Akura s hide spoiler I know a few of those questions may have been answered and I just didn t read closely enough forgot Sorry.Other thoughts view spoiler We got just the slightest glimpse of Lindon being treated like a VIP because he was a top 100 Truegold It would be interesting to see how he d be treated in the Blackflame Empire now that he s an Underlord, but since he s with the Akura s now he s back to being a runt LOL On the other hand, he was singled out for bad reasons, but still to represent the Akura Clan in a super important tournament If when he returns to the Blackflame Empire and he may well be an Overlord or higher by that point , they ll probably treat him like royalty Again, funny to imagine hide spoiler Like always, the worst part of finishing a great book like this is knowing we now need to wait again for the next breath of awesomeness My first full 5 stars in the Cradle series This book had it all I cheered, I cried tears of sadness and of joy, I wished for the book to strech further so I could prolong the fun and emotional ride I embarked on And I laughed out loud guys, you don t want to miss out the Bloopers at the end of the amazing epilogue BLOOPERS I hope I ll have the time to write somethingcoherent soon This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here POSSIBLE SPOILERS CONTAINED

favorite little side characters I m loving the snarky comments and witty remarks that come from him, at the worst possible times too Orthos COME BACK I missed his grumpy turtle self in the second half of this book He definitely grew on me in the previous books, I was sad to see him veer off on his own path Albeit, it had to be done, but it still hurt my heart to see him and Lindon part ways for a little while Oh Eithan what are you up to you nefarious mastermind, you Overall, I loved this book so much I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment I don t think it can be written fast enough though |Free E-pub ♓ Underlord ⚑ A tournament approaches All around the world, great clans and sects prepare their disciples to fight against one another in a competition of young Underlords Even the Blackflame Empire is drawn in, but their youth are not strong enough to compete Yet Underlord is an unputdownable, pedal to the floor, rush of a book It manages to tick all the boxes Fan f ing tastic action, a pace that fast does not adequately describe and characters that are unforgettable Now, all of these characteristics are part of Will Wight s standard bag of tricks But, in addition to all of these, this book also has wayhumour than in previous iterations which went a long way in making the uber fast pacecomfortable to read I also liked how Linden act Underlord is an unputdownable, pedal to the floor, rush of a book It manages to tick all the boxes Fan f ing tastic action, a pace that fast does not adequately describe and characters that are unforgettable Now, all of these characteristics are part of Will Wight s standard bag of tricks But, in addition to all of these, this book also has wayhumour than in previous iterations which went a long way in making the uber fast pacecomfortable to read I also liked how Linden actually has some significant character development in this book And this goes well with the theme of the book, which is that advancing to Underlord is less about power and strength though those matter andabout discovering who you are truly are As a result, our favourite characters all has to discover, confront and accept their true purposes in life I really liked this change in level requirements since it makes the characters do something that they have not done before.The book has a pulse pounding climax The ending is quite disruptive and moves the story into new areas which I am totally itching to read Executive Summary This is might be my favorite of the series thus far, and it s at least the best book since Blackflame Full Review I really loved this book and this series I think if I had started reading it during the weekend it came out instead of a few days later and I d have read it in 1 2 days instead of 4 Every time I picked it up, I just wanted to keep reading, but often I either didn t have enough time, or I was too tired to concentrate properly.After how much I loved Blackflame, Executive Summary This is might be my favorite of the series thus far, and it s at least the best book since Blackflame Full Review I really loved this book and this series I think if I had started reading it during the weekend it came out instead of a few days later and I d have read it in 1 2 days instead of 4 Every time I picked it up, I just wanted to keep reading, but often I either didn t have enough time, or I was too tired to concentrate properly.After how much I loved Blackflame, I found Skysworn a bit of a letdown Ghostwater was a better entry, but I wondered if the series had peeked in the third book Then this book came along and kicked things into another gear.I watch a ton of shonen anime, and those series often become less interesting to me when the main character gets too powerful I worried Lindon would be much less interesting the stronger he got.The typical solution to this problem is to add tougher and tougher enemies, which is a technique that Mr Wight uses, but what sets it above for me is the cool variety of ways each of the characters get stronger.He also does a pretty good job with humor I found myself laughing at something nearly as often as I was cheering for a badass fight scene I especially love the way Mercy says hello to EVERYONE.My only minor issue is that I still find myself confused as to some of the larger cosmic events I m sure thecareful readers are getting all kinds of information out of these interludes, I find myself scratching my head I m hoping that in time all of this stuff will makesense, and maybe I ll do a reread to see what stuff I was missing.This series continues to be highly entertaining and I m eagerly awaiting the next book I have a ton of questions, and he sets things up really nicely for what s to come next May the Dread Gods take you Will WightNever in my life have I been so happy and yet so filled with rage and despair Fifteen hours have passed since I downloaded this book, and aside from the seven hours I slept, I ve done nothing but read it Now it s done Finished Just like that What am I to do now Wait for your next release I mean, probably
