    Threshold is officially listed as a standalone novel However if you ever have any intention of reading the Darkglass Mountain Trilogy by the same author you might want to pick this one up first or have every single last plot point ruined for you I've never actually cracked the spine on this book but I can tell you every major charactereventconflict in it So despite my better judgement I'm marking the book as read and rating it anyway The same goes with Behind the Hanging Wall I wish they had been listed honestly somewhere as preuels As a side note Darkglass also has major spoilers for the 6 WayfarerAxis books so you might want to read those first as well Luckily I already had

    I read this book a long time ago when I was a teenager with already a lot of fantasy under my belt Unfortunately that meant I didn't enjoy this book at all Filled with cliches blatant errors you don't call elementalists Necromancers you just don't not without showing ignorance of the genre andor disrespecting your readersThe core romantic relationship in this book is unintentionally based around Stockholm Syndrome and there really isn't anything surprising in here Sorry can't please everyone

    one of my favorite things about Sara Douglass's work is that her protagonists are not always heroes and things don't often work out cleanly for all involved I know a lot of people don't like that but to me it's a delightful strength because it's less predictable and real than a lot of fantasy writingin this book our heroine spends a lot of time forgiving people for pushing her around and lamenting her own confusion until events force her to take charge of her own fate unfortunately in whichever action she takes she will inevitably betray someone there are no easy choicesher two love interests are eually problematic one a kind but very hot headed rebel leader who pressures her into becoming a spy and the other the cruel and abusive nobleman she spies on like the men her mentor is mostly interested in how she can use our heroine to achieve her own endsand yet it's a great book full of real people with real conseuences and deeply fascinating magic and philosophy which is always another of her strengths it's not going to be everyone's favorite book but it's one of mine if you're up for a solid magical romp with a bit of a tangled love story check it out

    Strong start Terrible middle Blech ending I really liked the initial concept of the story and the main character was interesting And then it went off the rails into this ridiculous Stockholm syndrome relationship and the main character lost all integrity as an interesting heroine In fact she became a very weak narrator and flimsy lame damsel Boo

    I'm not sure that I want to read this any In the Kindle sample the main character and her father are enslaved because her father's drinking gambling etc has landed them in debt However our heroine blames herself because when the guards or whatever broke in to arrest her she dropped the vase she was working on which was apparently so fine that it could've paid off all their debts She's so damn passive that she isn't angry at her father AT ALL even though the bastard has effectively ruined her life She BLAMES HERSELF Later on our heroine is raped by the man who purchases her and she thinks to herself that she deserved it because she dropped the vase and doesn't hate her rapist at all So unless this book magically gets better and less offensive as it goes I won't be reading it

  6. Robin Robin says:

    It was all right The main character started really bugging me about halfway through the book I just couldn't handle view spoilerher and Boaz's relationship Talk about textbook abusive hide spoiler

  7. Ron Ron says:

    Okay a three point fiveNever really connected with the protagonistToo many plot crises solved too easilyand too soon The first half of the book should have been edited to half it's length

  8. Emma Emma says:

    I love this book It is worth reading and has some interesting things to say on the number one Makes math look like fun ha ha

  9. Krizia Anna Krizia Anna says:

    It was an okay book The first half was really good and exciting I really loved the Tirzah Yaob Boaz love triangle The plot was also exciting I was really anticipating what evil lurks in Threshold But after Tirzah and Boaz got together and the evil from Threshold was released everything went downhill The second part was kind of boring I wished it was shortened by the author A lot of unnecessary and silly stuff like the Fetizzah It was really weird Also the author made use of a lot of deus ex machina using Fetizzah Maybe editing the second part would make the story better A little mystery is also good This is for mature readers who also loves young adult fantasy books

  10. Daisy Daisy says:

    it seemed like such a good concept but falls apart pretty uickly and it just becomes terrible practically unreadable by the second half of the book i can't even mills and boone at its worst captive falls in love with her abuser and fixes him with love after he does the most heinous things to her i forced myself to read it because it is linked to the glass mountain trilogy also a disaster not as bad as this though im sorry sara i still love you and the rest of all the books related to this series regardless of their flaws but i just couldn’t cope with this one
