    1. I've already mentioned the similarities I find between this world and that of "Lord of the Rings". Here those points on common are even more apparent.Besides the spreading evil there is also a mask which-like the Ring- corrupts those who wear it, creatures who work for the evil side who could well be compered to Orcs or Uruk-hai an entity who could well be compared to Saruman just to mention a few.Yes, all these influences are well apparent on Wooding's work yet the complexity of the world and c [...]


    2. The second book of the trilogy is quite the masterpiece. I loved it to bits.Suddenly you realise that all the bits of information about the world of Saramyr and their neighbours that you were given in the first book were a mere appetizer for the amazing worldbuilding you witness in this one, and you see all the effort and hard work that went into creating the world. Nations have backstories with eachother, the particular flora and fauna is further developed, you notice that all the deities aren' [...]


    3. Now have that book three commitment dilemma. Book one held my attention enough to launch into book two. But The Skein of Lament barely kept my attention. In fact the middle half of the book I struggled to keep going. I forced myself to read at least a chapter a day, even as I write this, it is becoming obvious that I didn’t enjoy this anywhere near as I was expecting to. The story does finish with a big ending and the last 20% was actually a good solid read, that really had me looking forward [...]


    4. The Weavers’ grip on Saramyr’s rulers has grown ever more powerful, and all the while, the blight they have brought grows harsher. The land is slipping into civil war. In the mounting chaos, Kaiku and the orphaned heir-Empress must fight for their destiny and their survival, as Saramyr succumbs to the twisting of the Weave and the unknowable ambitions of the secretive Weavers.Second book in the trilogy. I read the first book about 5 years ago and enjoyed it enough to keep an eye out for the [...]


    5. This is the seond part of 'The Braided Path' trilogy. Despite having read the first part relatively recently, I had forgotten quite a lot of it, and although Wooding reminds the reader of most of the salient points, there were still a few places where I was confused.The author's world-building is awesome. This is not a word I use lightly, but nothing else quite covers it. Everything about Saramyr and its neighbouring territories - history, mythology, races, cultures, natural history, geography - [...]


    6. The second novel in the Braided Path trilogy picks up the story a few years after the end of the Weavers of Saramyr. The initial action takes place on the distant continent of Okhamba as a group of explorers are pursued from the depths of the rainforest having discovered some crucial information about the background of the Weavers who dominate Saramyr society. The initial part of the story features some action scenes more memorable than anything in the first novel and overall the storytelling do [...]


    7. I quite enjoyed The Skein of Lament. It is clear from the beginning that this is not to be the last novel in the series; a joy to learn. However, this suffers from the traditional second-novel curse: the major plot line is a minor occurrence, and nothing is tied up properly such that we end on a cliff hanger.In this book, we get a few new characters and an old character with a few new faces. The lesbian sex scene of the previous novel makes sense, now. It appears that it was not just a random on [...]


    8. I'll be honest that this book really only gets five stars by the skin of its teeth. That said, it is a lot better than the first book (which is strange because it was always the first book I liked best before).This series is really starting to remind me of Game of Thrones, the political intrigue and the changing factions/loyalties especially give me a GoT vibe - this is just for younger people (though considering some of the acts of violence I would argue are on par with GoT not for much younger [...]


    9. I usually don't comment on "middle books" of series because really, what is the point? But I had to give this book some respect for avoiding the usually middle book pitfalls.First of all, we once again have a nicely contained story. Sure there is a big giant cliffhanger, but most of the personal plot lines were wrapped up. We also get a lot of well paced action. Many middle books lag as they try to set up their epic finally, not so with this one.Lastly, the characters are once again great. Asari [...]


    10. This book was difficult for me to read, the same as the 1st one. The fantasy world suggested by the author is brilliant and the monsters are unique, its English is elaborate well, it's Cgris Wooding, so no surprise here XD everything is actually super nice, but the characters. I just could never come to love them, may be only Tsata and Kaiku at the very end of this book Still it's just my opinion and I will also read the next book.


    11. So far this book has been so entertaining with lots of energy in eaqual parts!! A luxurious blend of oriental and occidental adventure with a double dose of twits and intrigue.I just came to a huge shocker in this book I didn't even see it coming and that is very rare for me to come across. All I can say is this book is going to be one of mu fav's


    12. You can really feel the pace pick up from the first one with this book, and it's exciting and fast-paced from start to finish. The Weavers of Saramyr did a good job laying the foundation, but I think this is the best of the three.


    13. If you're looking for great writing and an excellent mix of high and low fantasy then this is for you. I loved it throughout. This book, as well as the other two, never really dragged. They kept me turning pages for days and days.


    14. If you like fantasy, read everything by Chris Wooding - he will blow your mind! Every world and character he creates is fully-formed and believable and he gets to the heart of things about our world by creating fantastic worlds.



    15. I love this series - the world building is fantastic and while they start out kind of slow moving once I get a little ways into it I can't put it down! Definitely worth reading.





    16. A good follow up to The Weavers of Saramyr. Good pace, relevations have been made and some twists thrown in kept the middle book of the trilogy compelling. Onto the third installment.
