    1 thought on “The Hounds of Avalon

    1. I really like the Dark Age series altogether However, I was disappointed to find out that Chadbourn had forestalled the ultimate confrontation between Existence and The Void for the next series There is no single protagonist in this book Chadbourn performs a balancing act while depicting the stories of five Brothers and Sisters of Dragons, and many sub characters As a result, the depth of each character suffers a bit Still, Chadbourn makes the story move along enough to keep the reader intereste [...]

    2. Rated 2.5 stars because the I think about the ending, the angrier I become Chadbourn spends 320 in this book alone building up to the fact that all 5 Brothers and Sisters of Dragons must be together in order for them to stand a chance at defeating the Void So they trapise through the Otherworld looking for help, seek out the three survivors of the previous 5 who fought in the Fall, and hack away at immense odds, only so that in the last 3 pages the Shadow Mage can save the day.But does he reall [...]

    3. The Hounds of Avalon is the third book in Mark Chadbourn s DARK AGE trilogy, which continues the story of England after the Fall described in the author s earlier AGE OF MISRULE trilogy A noticeable difference between the two trilogies is that the AGE OF MISRULE follows the same group of five main characters, the Brothers and Sisters of Dragons, throughout all three books The DARK AGE trilogy introduces one set of characters in book 1, The Devil in Green, and then surprisingly introduces all new [...]

    4. The Hounds of Avalon wraps up the Dark Age series set after the Fall of modern civilization and the return of supernatural beings, gods, faeries, and monster This book ties the previous ones in the series together, the five Brothers and Sisters of Dragons need to be united to stop an existence destroying Void of anti life from ripping apart the universe Big stakes, especially since the good guys aren t even a team yet, and the remnants of the British government, hinted at earlier in the series, [...]

    5. One of the things that annoys me about narratives based on a painful and bloody struggle against terrific odds and powerful opponents is that after several hundred pages, or even a thousand, of grim, back against the wall situations, the authors wind everything up in three pages of happy ending So after hours of reading about pain and suffering, readers are given only two or three minutes of pleasure as a reward, which hardly seems fair.Mark Chadbourn, however, has sunk to new depths in his seri [...]

    6. For me this book should have been a five star book, if only it wasn t for the end I hate it when a book is part of a set amount of books, like a trilogy, and it ends on a cliff hanger Its sooooo rude, frustrating, annoying and makes me stamp my feet in anger cause I just want to know what happens without having to wait for Rant over.The Hounds of Avalon carries on the theme of the end of the world is nigh and the only hope lies with the 5 brothers and sisters of dragons This book carries on wit [...]

    7. well, this was really, really good.Better than the second book, most deffinetly Better than the first I don t know, I was just glad to see Mallorey back in action, and Hunter was pretty neat too I can t say too much about it, it was simply really enjoyabled the ending, or actually the chapter before the ending was really fun Mark you had me almost tearing my hair and screaming my lungs out I thought it was simply cruel and I was this close to throwing the book away and giving it one star but tha [...]

    8. I had thought that The Dark Age was just set in the same world as the Age of Misrule It s not It s part of a complex and epic story that combines elements of Faerie, King Arthur and Stonehenge and continues where Always Forever left off There are themes of spirituality, religion and technology that somehow make sense, rather than being pitted against each other Stereotypes make their appearence, but there s always a twist or turn to keep you thinking My biggest complaint is that now I have to fi [...]

    9. Brilliant wont say too much as i have on the others in the series, but its of the same effectively.I actually read the latest book first The Burning Man and then went back to Jack of Ravens Not the best start but they really got my attentiona nd have now read the whole lot so undrestand the background and the reasons for Vietch s behaviour etc but i ll stop there.Sheer brilliance and deserves any accolades they get.

    10. Book 6 in an unexpectedly long trilogy Age of Misrule disguises itself as Book 3 in a second trilogy Dark Age I d kinda hoped this would be the end of it, but it turns out, no there s another trilogy allegedly also separate that continues this one Next step, Book 7 Still, Chadbourn works much better within Celtic mythology than he does in the Christianity The Devil in Green, making Hounds of Avalon a welcome return to form in places.

    11. The final book in the Dark Age series, and as is Mark Chadbourn s style, even in the final book of a trilogy, the story isn t concluded Rather, the open ending leaves you wanting for , leaving just a thin sliver of hope that everything might turn out alright after all But you need to buy the next book to find out

    12. Horrible Horrible writing Horrible story telling Horribly confusing Just horrible Horrible.My full review at elitistbookreviews
