Publisher's Summary

Song of the Risen God is the climatic conclusion to the thrilling Coven Trilogy from New York Times best-selling author, R. A. Salvatore. 

War has come to Fireach Speur. 

The once forgotten Xoconai empire has declared war upon the humans west of the mountains, and their first target are the people of Loch Beag. Lead by the peerless general, Tzatzini, all that stands in the way of the God Emperor's grasp of power is Aoelyn, Talmadge, and their few remaining allies. 

But not all hope is lost. Far away from Fireach Speuer, an ancient tomb is uncovered by Brother Thaddeus of the Abellican Church. Within it is the power to stop the onslaught of coming empire and, possibly, reshape the very world itself.

Waste of a excellent character!

Can't write more without spoiling it all but my god Rob you wasted one of the best characters in a long time in your stories. Then after the death you write it off as if nothing happened. Besides that the story just felt rushed in order to end the series.

Wow....spoilers below

Oh so much to say, this book is
Rich with story telling so you won’t hate it. But I am very disappointed with the end of this book! Like the last 3-4 hrs felt very very rushed I’m also saddened that Adrian died abruptly, There was Still so much that could have been done with Adrian’s character! I at least hope the author finds a way to bring Adrian back into the loop. but what really made me angry was the fact Adrian fought off this dragon to finally go limp in the dragons mouth. (Probably means he’s dead) but then that’s it! You don’t hear about him again!! Not even a burial or anything.. wtf. Very disrespectful to his character.

A Good Ending

As expected, Aoelyn is ultimately victorious but not before many human cities both large and small are torn asunder. [snort-snicker]It's a good thing that humans in this world breed like rabbits since they seem to replenished their ranks and repair their cities within one generation of each large-scale destruction.[/snort-snicker]

Aydrian finally achieves his long sought-after atonement for his past villainy but at terrible cost.

Regrettably, R. A. Salvatore had constructed a story that has been a trend with other SciFi authors that I find actually detracts from the enjoyment of the novel. That being, framing most female characters as great leaders and warriors, supreme to even the men under their charge. Yes, there were some men in leadership roles but their roles were mostly of a support nature and most of those meet an untimely and, uh, shall I say, unpleasant ending. I don't mind and even enjoy books having strong female leads and secondary characters but a bit more balance is needed.

[SPOILER] wth!? even Mairen, the female Coven leader, who was responsible for untold treachery and cruelty toward Aoelyn, her aunt and the lake people somehow gets a pass in the end and continues in her leadership role.[/SPOILER]

While this book clearly end the Coven trilogy, there is a seed planted for a new hero being nurtured.

Tim Gerard Reynolds' narrating performance continues to make listening to books, no matter the length, very rewarding.

Certainly a stunning conclusion

This book had a lot of the typical tempo and drama of a Salvatore book. This book kept me interested throughout. The trilogy as a whole was good in that if you never read the rest of the series in this world it’s not a problem but if you have it’s that much more rewarding. Plenty of nods to past events for long time readers I will say, having read nearly 50 of Salvatores books over the last 25 years this trilogy might be the darkest in ways. I don’t think in a bad way but is different for sure. Hoping he comes back to this world he has built. There is so much potential but he left it in just a way this could be the conclusion of the world. But with just enough of a pleasant twist at the end to leave the door cracked. Definitely worth the read.

Beautiful.

I really thought the story was beautiful, definitely worth reading the 3 series before if you have not. But does stand as its own in a way. I was surprised at the ending, but it definitely opens up for the next saga for this story and most likely the rise of a new leader for the people of Honce, but we will see

An amazing story.

Told to you by a man with a talent for accents and voices. R A Salvatore has done it again and Tim brought it all to life!

I loved this series!

I don’t have an extensive background in fantasy, and got this as a recommendation. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this series and it’s characters. Of course it’s hard to conjure up the images of every new being and species mentioned, but it soon becomes familiar. There are points where the author repeats the thoughts of the characters to the point where it’s noticeable each time, and that’s probably my only criticism, but I am pleasantly surprised and will wait to see if this series continues, which it just might. Well done mister Salvatore.

A mixture of emotions

I loved the first book. Disliked the second book. I have mixed feelings about this book.

The first 2/3 of this book I struggled to get through and it was only the last part that I actually enjoyed.

It was completely worth it. i blazed through the last part in three days (compared to the three months it took for the first 2/3 of the book). I was engaged by how the series was going to end and by the chaos that was happening.

I chose the first book of the trilogy because I saw Tim Gerard Reynolds as the narrator and I now I'm going to the DemonWars Saga to get more of the Corona universe.

Would definitely recommend the series to anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

Disappointing

Here’s what I loved about the first two books of the Coven: the prose, the magic, the characters, the world being contained and the story relatively small.
All of this is gone from this installment.
The characters stopped developing and melted all into one “selfless hero” perfect character.
The villains had no real motives other than being evil.
The magic was just a bunch of throwing lightbulbs around.
The charming prose of the first book turned into a more simplistic style.
And worse of all, the story tried so hard to be epic and world encompassing, war everywhere, that it was just BORING. The plot simply swallowed up everything.

It reminded me of the first Demon Wars book, which has the exact same faults (and no, I didn’t continue to read the rest of them).

I probably wouldn’t have written such a bad review if I didn’t love the first two books so much. It’s just that it really doesn’t do justice to the characters and the world.

Tim Gerard Reynolds, as always, was wonderful.

camt wait f0r the next in the series

have been a fan of R A Salvatore for over 25 years. Whilst the companions of the hall and especially Drizzit will always remain my favourite. I have really enjoyed this series of stories.

I eagerly await the next book.
