    1 thought on “Everwinter

    1. A really great first book in a series, our focus switches from Princess Falen to Bramwell Thornley with the most deepest secret of any! Can a mission to fallen Varliss bring victory in the face of so much darkness? But wait! In the final battle of book 1, both an Ice Dragon & two sea dragons blaze across the in mortal claw and fang.

    2. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I sooo wanted to LOVE this book! I really did! Come on, epic fantasy meets science I've gotten excited for less than this! The fact that it was building up rather slow, and even though I understand it helped in the development of the characters, give depth to the plot, it kinda made me lose interest more than once. I might not have enough patience. This is probably what you need to actually get the feeling you are really going [...]

    3. The prologue of Elizabeth Baxter's "Everwinter" has all the trappings of an epic fantasy--a loyal but conflicted soldier and his men escorting his King on what he feels is a fool's errand into the mountains. All the while a monk who is obviously up to no good is whispering words of madness into the king's ear. Clearly this will not end wellFrom there we go to the city of Ral Tora, the city of the engineers, and spend half the book there. Most of this is setup, and if it were not clear that this [...]

    4. Just how the hell can it be possible, that this genius of a woman hasn´t already found a publishing house for her works? "Everwinter" is, I think, one of the most enjoyable books I´ve read this year. I actually picked it up, because I wanted something light to read, and since I instantly imagined Ral Tora looking like the city of the classic Christmas Carol movie (not the terrible version from 2009, but the ORIGINAL) I thought it might be a great read, light so short before christmas. I had no [...]

    5. Can science and magic ever exist in harmony?It was with that simple tagline, just eight simple words, that my interest in Everwinter was first kindled. It sounded like an interesting tale, and I was more than willing to give Elizabeth Baxter a chance to tell it. I had a hard time getting into it - in fact, several false starts kept it on my 'currently reading' list for far longer than I would have anticipated - but the investment of time and effort turned out to be worth it.In terms of setting a [...]

    6. Due to the ponderous pace at the beginning of the novel, I give this epic fantasy (first in a series) 3.4 stars. First of all, it started with a prologue that contained characters we never meet again. The cast is enormous (it is epic after all) and difficult to keep up with at times. It seems to be Bram's story, but I felt like I didn't really know what he wanted. If he wanted recognition for his work as an engineer, he didn't get it and he walked away from that job mid story. I couldn't connect [...]

    7. Very interesting story. Who is Bramwell Thornley? The creation of Elizabeth Baxter in the debut series of The Wrath of the Northmen, Everwinter takes on a journey where an engineer seems to be destined for more. Bran is unsure of himself, yet curious and trusting. Pull strings are tugging his life in different directions and the ensemble cast deserves a nod of respect, making it a fascinating read. It isn't the typical spin on fantasy. This is more sci-fi to start - science and religion battling [...]

    8. Engineer Bramwell (Bram) Tully lives in Ral Tora and loves to puzzle new ideas out. Bram doesn't see himself much like the other engineers yet does his best at what he's doing at the time. Fellow Engineer Falen Godwinsson, a native of Variss, is highly skilled engineer and requested to do a project with Bram. Falen will mostly likely do all the figuring then only let Bram help when it suits her. Engineer Rassus sends Bram out on errands to keep him busy. A surprising vistor from Variss appears a [...]

    9. In some ways, this book is standard epic fantasy fare: there is magic here, and mythical sea creatures, and old gods with human offspring. Just with science added in. What makes Everwinter different, though, is the way Baxter avoids replicating sexism-as-default in her world-building. Too many books in the genre are set in worlds that prioritise the exploits of men while marginalising women - all because this would, supposedly, be more realistic. The book is set in the city-states of Ral Tora an [...]

    10. Great story that's got it all: deep and intriguing characters, beautifully described landscapes, good fight scenes, and mystery. In addition to the MCs, each supporting character is interesting in his/her own way. The swordfights illustrated throughout make you hold your breath, the scenes feel so real. This is a good start to a wonderfully unique epic fantasy.EverwinterElizabeth BaxterLT Member Giveaway

    11. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. One of my favorite genres is SciFi/Fantasy. This book does not disappoint. the world Elizabeth Baxter creates is complete and realistic. The characters are so well done they seem to come right off the page. These are flesh and blood people. The story and the people grab you right away and don't let go. I was disappointed when it ended. This was the first Elizabeth Baxter book I have read and it will not be my last! Great read!!!!

    12. I liked it for the most part. It took me a minute to get into reading it. The beginning was a little slow for my taste, but once Astrid showed up, I couldn't put it down. Shes a force to be reckoned with. Can't really think of a good way to say anything without spoilers except Bram is clumsy funny, Falen is secretive but likable, the Panthers are a ball of laughs. And this story needs a book 2 already!! Need to see whats up north already.Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    13. So glad I gave this book a shot. It starts out by really developing the characters in a setting that I loved. To me this is the strong part of the book. I love to read about new places and characters and get to know them and the city of Ral Tora was fun to get to know. The rest of the book was really good also but your typical fantasy novel. Hope the next book comes out soon. There is a prequel that I just downloaded so I will check this out also.

    14. "Verdict: Great - a solid book and an enjoyable read.A fantasy book about a never-ending winter and the start of an adventure to end it."Full review on my blog:knrbooks/2013/05/review-everwintermlA copy of this book was provided in exchange for a review.

    15. Lower scoring for~Lack of appealing coverJust is not at all easy on the eyes. It was well written, but at times I felt it was hard to get into the storyline. However, I would most definitely read more work from this author.

    16. The beginning of an epic series! I devoured it! The plot was great, loved the characters and the atmosphere was wonderfulwhen can I have the next one??? :)

    17. AwesomeI was hoping I hadn't made the last page. I am excited for more!! Will be looking for the sequels with enthusiasm!!!

    18. this is a story world to get lost in I fell in love with the characters, the creatures and the world they live in. Looking forward to more in the series.
