Over a millennium ago, Erna, a seismically active yet beautiful world was settled by colonists from far-distant Earth. But the seemingly habitable planet was fraught with perils no one could have foretold, and the colonists found themselves caught in a desperate battle for survival against the fae, a terrifying natural force with the power to prey upon the human mind itself, drawing forth images from a person's worst nightmare or most treasured dreams and indiscriminately giving them life. Twelve centuries after fate first stranded the colonists on Erna, mankind has achieved an uneasy stalemate, and human sorcerers manipulate the fae for their own profit, little realising that demonic forces which feed upon such efforts are rapidly gaining in strength.

3.5 Black Sun Rising
One of my goals for this year was to finish more series. I had started this many years ago. The sad thing is why I started it is because I loved the cover of the third (and last) book. I did read this, but never finished the series. I decided to pick them up from audible and get through them. I ...

4.0 Black Sun Rising by C.S. Friedman
May be a bit spoilerish Twelve centuries ago the planet Erna was colonized by mankind what was a big mistake as it turned out later. First the colonists didnĀ“t know about the many earth-quakes and the "fae", an energy which materializes human emotions to demons. The starship was destroyed as wer...

2.0
The prologue was absolutely the best part of this book, but over the course of a few hundred pages any excitement I felt had been whittled down to nothing. There is SO MUCH repetition, it really started to grate on me. The magic system started out awesome and terrifying, but by the end (with a reall...
