Reviews - What do customers think about Shadow in the Deep (The Binding of the Blade, Book 3)?
A Satisfying Sequel Nov 14, 2006
We read on in the tale of Benjiah as he seeks to discover the truth of the eternal rain, and Aljeron seeks out the lost dragons in the frozen wastes of the North. It has some great flashback bits about the enemie's pasts, and powerful battle scenes, with a twist (predictable) at the end. Graham's third book in the Binding of the Blade trilogy is satisfying, but it seems to be lacking a bit in the intrigue department. I am not saying I dislike this book at all, it was a great continuation of his earlier story, but it seems to waffle on in certain parts. The "secret" of the rain, which I won't disclose here, was painfully obvious even in the second book. Not a bad fantasy read, go ahead and try it, but it lacks the zest of his previous two books.
Promising author ... good start! Nov 9, 2006
This third book in the Binding of the Blade trilogy is roughly on par with the 1st two in the series. The characters are well developed and each chapter has plenty of conflict, adventure, and romance to keep the reader hooked. The style is reminiscent of the earlier works of Stephen Lawhead (that's a good thing). Some of the plot lines are interesting, but they are pretty typical for this genre. Others show flashes of brilliance that leave you with hopes that Graham will grow into a world class author. As a trilogy, the three books are not quite as cohesive as they could be - more like a set of episodes in a series than a unified saga. I expect this is simply a mark of inexperience and not a serious weakness. If you are a fan of sci-fi/fantasy with a positive moral compass, I highly recommend this series. I do recommend reading them in order.
Following This Series Sep 11, 2006
I've been following the Binding of the Blade series and loving it. Beyond the Summerland started a little slow, but if you stay with it, you become engrossed to the point of no return. I read Shadow of the Deep on a long plane trip, and it made that trip much more bearable. Excellent bood, decent Christian symbolism. I can't wait until the the next one.
Couldn't Put It Down!! Aug 14, 2006
I read the first book in the series. It drew me in completely. Then I read the second book. I tore through it. I have now finished the third book, and I am just amazed. L.B. Graham never ceases to amaze me with his writing. Every time I read one of his books, I get drawn into the story. I feel like I'm right there, standing beside the characters, seeing what they are seeing. I thought the first two books were fantastic. This third book does not dissapoint. The character development continues to be fantastic. The plot couldn't be better. Graham takes the reader farther and farther into the world he has created. Just when you think you've explored as much as you are going to, the author takes you further in. I highly recommend this series for anyone who likes adventure, battles, friendship, love, devotion, and, simply put, GREAT STORIES!
Incredible! Aug 7, 2006
L B Graham has never failed with any book in this series! I keep thinking he might write a dud or something, cause it's not natural to write book that are this good! This book has great imagery, action, and the plot is unreal! You will have trouble putting this book down if you pick it up!
Oh yeah, this one also has a major cliff hanger! Can't wait for book #4!
