Time Candle (Coin of Rulve, #3) Reviews
Time Candle is the third book in the Coin of Rulve series. This is a series, not a trilogy: though this book pretty much stands alone, there is a strong through-line that is clearly meant to carry forward into future books.I have not read the first two books—reading this was an experiment to see if I could catch the storyline. And I did. Dale does an excellent job of weaving details of a very complex world into an on-going rush of story; though I was confused a few times, it was always by paracosm and magical terminology that later explained itself through actions and reactions.What’s more important, the characters caught me up with compelling immediacy. Dale has crafted complex characters in a situation of extreme cultural danger and change; readers who like books featuring characters who feel real dealing with extraordinary circumstances should give this series a try. In this volume, Sheft and Teller, twins with terrific magic potential, who have been forcibly separated for most of their lives, come together at last, with unpredictable results.I came to believe in Sheft and Mariat’s relationship, young as they are: Dale does an excellent job depicting the subtleties of familial relationships as well as the bleak psychological damage of a brutal warrior culture. She also paints a realistic picture of ordinary people struggling to survive while powers clash around them, regardless of their safety.In short, discussing this book in more detail would venture too far into spoiler territory, especially as it is a third book. I found myself deeply absorbed into the story, and hoping for resolution (dreading meeting the Spider King, yet wanting him defeated); a reader could begin here, but because the characterization is so complex, as is the worldbuilding, I strongly encourage readers to begin with the first book.Copy provided by author for review.
