Reviews Iron Garland

  • Quintin Zimmermann
    Iron Garland is the third instalment of Jeff Wheeler's planned five book Harbinger series and Jeff Wheeler certainly doesn't disappoint. After the very solid foundations laid by the preceding books, Jeff Wheeler has skipped ahead three years, ramped up the intrigue and expanded the world across the Mirror Gate. The fate of both worlds rest in Sera’s and Cettie's capable young hands as they gather their wits and rise above their allotted station...

    Another Wonderful Work by WheelerThe third book of the Harbinger series by Jeff Wheeler is another testament to the author’s ability to draw you into a story. While the book is good on it’s own merit, you really need to read the previous two installments to fully appreciate it. The book starts off with an unexpected twist that, for me, confirmed some suspicions but left many more questions unanswered. Cettie and Sera continue their disparate ...

    Iron Garland marks the midway point of the Harbinger series. In most series, this is where the story slows down and not much happens as the author slowly moves pieces into place but withholds any sort of resolution in order to keep the tension for the concluding installment(s). I am so glad to report that Iron Garland does not succumb to that problem. It is not a stand-alone novel in any sense of the word, but enough of the story lines are given ...

    Disclaimer: I received this book free from Netgalley in return for an unbiased review.He did it again. Mr. Wheeler sets about making me care about people and then up-ends them. Twice in this book! Once in the first chapter!! I expect this kind of tricksy-ness from George R. R. Martin, but you sir! Don’t stop! 😊These are such great books. Cettie, is becoming a force to reckon with. Her power is unstoppable but it is tempered with such a sweet...

    What can I say about this book! I just adore this series and the universe that Wheeler has created. It's atypical to find a series that follows characters from childhood through adulthood, and Wheeler does that as well as any of the masters. Cettie, Sera and the rest are so relatable and believable. Oftentimes, characters lose the traits that originally made me love them as they progress through a series. That doesn't happen with the characters o...

    Book 3 of the Harbinger series drops us back into the lives of Cettie and Sera (aka Seraphina), two friends born on opposite ends of the class spectrum. While both are in completely different situations, both face very similar challenges.WHAT WORKED FOR ME:The drop into book three was seamless. There was no ramp up, with pages and pages of information explaining the previous books. At the same time, there was nothing to leave you lost trying to f...

    Jeff Wheeler doesn't hesitate to start "Iron Garland" off with a jaw-dropping reveal that yanks you into the story and makes you want to continue reading to the end!Three years have passed since the events of "Mirror Gate," and both Sera and Cettie are surviving their current situations. The former is still exiled from society and is living under house arrest, and the latter is running her family's estate. However, while people continue to shun t...

    We enter the scene three years later, and Sera and Cettie have both matured and grown. Their circumstances and responsibilities have formed them into new people - but better.Sera is more reticent, keeps her own counsel and has unintentionally learned the art of manipulation. That may sound like a negative, but because she's honest she works through this as well as other issues.Cettie has the responsibility of caring for the family home and has ea...

    Three years into the war with Kingfountain, the populace is weary of it. Sera has been ostracized from society in the hopes to make her subservient. Cettie has grown into her role of Keeper of Fog Hollow and is finally feeling confident in herself. But the war is coming to a head and both women will play a vital role in it. I loved the character growth in both of the main characters. Wheeler also does a great job of weaving the “bad” guys in ...

    Originally posted at Chain Interaction I always find it quite tricky to review a series, particularly one being published as quickly as this one is, I don’t just want to repeat what I’ve said in previous reviews, but it’s hard to build on them without mentioning things from before. I’ve left links to my previous two reviews above, so maybe check those out for some additional context.A hallmark of a book in a Jeff Wheeler series is, of co...

    A new book by Jeff Wheeler always makes me happy! Iron Garland is the 3rd book in his planned 5 book Harbinger series. Cettie and Sera, the two main characters are older and wiser in this novel, but they both face many challenges and dangers as they seek their way forward. New characters, plot twists and revelations make this quite an exciting read I love how Mr. Wheeler writes such strong, realistic young characters who grow and mature and striv...
  • Paresh Jha
    Yet another fantastic edition to the Wheelerverse."Iron Garland" further explores the challenges Cettie and Sera continue to face as war and political maneuvering surround them.I won't get into spoiler territory but I will say Mr. Wheeler brilliantly fleshes out two characters who we got to know as young children in the previous books. Seeing them grow into young adults has been fascinating.At the end of the day I believe this is a story about un...

    Iron Garland continues the adventures three years after Mirror Gate; the war with King Fountain has been calamitous. Both girls have developed into stronger versions of their personalities. Sera has learned to bide her time and control her impulses; Cettie, whose skills are crucial in the war with King Fountain, has learned how to handle those who would pressure her.The possibility of a negotiated end to the war has been floated and will require ...
  • RobC
    Well written, continued complex development of characters and plot but too short and would have liked this to be the final installment. Left me hanging but still interested - for now. Frustrated that the book was so short and that the purpose of this installment was to add more complexity to the plot. Though some things were revealed I definitely expected it move the series along more quickly. I didn’t realize there was to be a 4th book and loo...

    I would like to thank 47North for the advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.These books are so fun and engaging. I rarely run through a series like I did this one and I can't wait for the next installment.PGPros:Cettie and Sera are pretty awesome. They are smart and in control and make mistakes here and there to keep them down to earth.Jeff gives you the closure you need for this book but leaves you dying for the next one at the e...

    Not the Usual FareBook three is not the meaty fare of the previous two novels in the Harbinger series. I looked forward to plot twists and turns throughout. Most showed up in the epilogue. Still, an interesting read.
    BeautifulAs always this latest installment left me wanting more. And thinking about international relations and ancient as well as newer animosities . Nothing for it- i will have to start the series again. Then reread everything else he has written. Again
  • Lila White
    NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I'll only say that the ending took me completely by surprise.This was such a delicious read, interesting clues dropped, and many, MANY things to ponder such as Joanna. Jeff Wheeler has done it again.
    What can I say?This book is just so good! A few surprises, great character growth, new characters introduced - the continuation of this story is everything you probably imagined and waited patiently for. Can't wait until book 4!!!
  • Greg Garguilo
    A worthy follow-up to an already strong startWith some changes in Wheeler's literary technique which I found surprising and enjoyable both. Most strongly recommend this new work.
  • Emily
    I love that the characters are strong, but have great weaknesses. Wonderful story weaving!
  • Kristina Jean Lareau
    So much depth and intrigue!
  • Stephanie Augustine
    I don't know why I subject myself to these books. I'm not emotionally okay.
  • Betty
    I love this series so much!Full review coming soon.
