      Long. Initially I thought the main protagonist was Tiane, and then there started to be a plethora of other characters, but at least three Tiane, Malian and Irisis were women. But by the second novel, Tiane stopped being more than a cut-out, Malian was someone who occaisionally appeared from the wings, and Irisis was the beautiful, busty gutsy girlfriend. I tend not to read male authors, and initially thought, with a strong, seemingly interesting female protagonist, this might be an exception, bu [...]

      Shocking and surprising your reader is one thing, losing their trust is another thing entirely. Not Robin Hobb levels of betrayal by any means, but since Nish was easily the least compelling character, I'm not really motivated to continue.

    • Ellise says:

      It was hard to read this. There were moments of enthusiastic page-turning where I completly grill into the world of Tiaan and Nish but these page-turning moments were always trumped by many boring pages of war and arguments ammount the characters that never ended. I struggled but i got there in the end and yes the end was not really an end at all but a cliff hanger to the next series i really didn't want to have to read. But read them I will. I've already bought the books so i may aswell finish [...]

      The fourth and final book of The Well of Echoes series was exciting from start to finish. Finding out about the Lyrinx's history was the best part for me and it came just before the final showdown in the book between humans, Lyrinx and Aachim.

      ### Product DescriptionAll resistance has been crushed. In a few minutes of overwhelming violence the Council's air-dreadnought fleet has destroyed Fiz Gorgo's defences. Xervish Flydd, Irisis and their allies have been condemned to die in a brutal aerial spectacle designed to reinforce Chief Scrutator Ghorr's power and majesty. Nish is their one remaining hope. But Nish is trapped in a burning watchtower, and hunted by both the scrutators and his former lover, Ullii, whose twin brother he accide [...]

      Wow, what a powerful ending! There were so many climactic endings to story arcs, I kept thinking things were finished but they just kept coming. 5 stars for a great sci-fi / fantasy adventure, interesting characters, and a vast world vision, so well imagined! 1 star off for the descriptions of war (not at all gratuitous, just not my favourite thing). I've realised this is the 2nd series of books - now I'll have to go back and read the first, then third and fourth series - can't wait!

    • Mattias says:

      Chimaera är den fjärde och sista boken i serien "The Well of Echoes". Irvine lyckas med något ganska unikt i det att han lyckas knyta ihop berättelsen och avsluta serien på ett bra sätt, samtidigt som han ändå lämnar en dörr öppen för en framtida fortsättning. Det finns också en fortsättning i serien "The Song of the Tears", men då ifrån ett något annorlunda perspektiv. En väl genomarbetad värld med färgstarka, en fängslande story, och trovärdiga karaktärer gör att Irvin [...]

    • Chris Pacheco says:

      holy shit. Ian Irvine is the most sadistic guiltless bastard.I don't even know what to say about this book without giving it away. All, I can say is that If, you haven't read any of Ian Irvine's books, DO SO. This series is complicated, explicit in detail, and heart wrenching. Ian Irvine should be ABOVE Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind in sales. It's very difficult to get decent quality copies of his later novels, without paying an unhealthy sum. I want more people to read his novels. I'm very [...]

    • Robin says:

      OK, the beginning was as good as the rest of the series butSHIT ENDING! It showed promise, and then sortof floundered about, clumsily tied off some loose ends, and then set up for a sequel series. I found the twisty ending predictable from a way off, and the bit that wasn't predictable was just lame and convenient! Ugh.The characters seemed completely irrational in their actions at the very end. I'm disappointed and a bit turned off Ian Irvine now. I don't think I'll be giving Song of the Tears [...]

    • Peter Batho says:

      WARNING! possible spoilerI didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the other 3 in the series, mainly because of the ending. If I'd realised that this wasn't the end of the story, then I'd probably view the end of the book differently. As somebody else has already observed, this is really a 7 book series, but I didn't know this, and I didn't want to commit to another long series of books in the same universe at this point. I have so many other books waiting for my time. Don't get me wrong though. [...]

    • Erin-Claire says:

      Like the rest of the books in this series, this was extremely impressive in that it had more thoughtful character development than almost any other fantasy I've read (and I've read a few!) BUT I just felt the need to write this review to qualify the four stars I am compelled to give the book, by saying that the ending of this book made me so angry I threw the book across the room and couldn't bring myself to talk to anyone in a civil tone for hours - think 800 pages of wonderful novel completely [...]

    • Alex Boon says:

      "He, Nish," and "'Irisis is so beautiful' sigh" aside, this was an exciting and well written book. I had a few issues with it, particularly the rushed ending and the feeling that a number of important things were never quite explained. Like what's an amplimet anyway? What does it want to do? But I wonder whether I might have known if I had read some if the previous quartet. Anyway, I will be reading the next trilogy, just because I have invested time in this series and want to know the end.

    • Fmj says:

      Overall the series was okay, it had some parts where I just had to read another chapter and some where I had to force myself through. I wish Tiaan would have a bigger part in it seeing as she was the only character I truly liked. I hated reading Nish's part cause I never liked him, he was just a dumb blob asking silly questions and annoying everyone. The cliffhanger in the end was okay but it seems Nish will be a main character in the next series so I will probably not read it.

    • Hayles:) says:

      this was a good book, the end made me cry though I won't spoil it don't worry. It is quite a lot of information to absorb and I would recommend taking a break between each of the books (considering how huge they are) so the information of the previous book can fully sink inat's what I had to do anyway :)All in all, a very good read!

    • Vikki says:

      Did not see that ending coming. Very good set of books. This last book in the series was a much faster pace and definitely a page turner. Highly recommended. Need to read the next set to find out what happens to them all.

    • Donald says:

      I enjoyed most of this series, but I'm kind of annoyed with the ending. I know there's more books, but I've been lead to believe Tiaan won't be a major player and Nish will be taking the lead role, so I'm pretty much done with the series. Nish character always rubbed me the wrong way.

    • Daniel says:

      Putting a cliffhanger at the end of a series is extremely disrespectful of your readers who just invested a substantial amount of time into your books. Next time just call it a 7 volume series, and not a 4 volume series ending with a cliffhanger into the followup 3 volume series.

    • Skyemberr says:

      Wonderful ending to a great series with a terrifying twist at the end. Well done.

    • Karl Wood says:

      I want to read the song of tears now ahhhhhh

    • Chrys Matthews says:

      TerrificWell worth reading and a very worthwhile ending to the quartet. This author is up there with the best of them.

    • Andrew says:

      Although it's a great commentry on war and the way it drives technological advances, with some recognisable political figures, I found this a disappointing end to a great quartet.

    • Joy says:

      How could you leave me hanging like that Ian. Can't wait to start the next series.

    • M Beal says:

      Amazing end to the series.

    • Rick says:

      cant remember too long ago, but i kept reading the series!

    • Faith Robertson says:

      I cannot believe the ending with Irisis dying and Nish being captured. It was reeeeeeeeeeealllly sad.
