The people from Serendair, called “Cymrians” by the natives, created a large, prosperous empire under the reign of King Gwylliam and his half-dragon wife, Anwyn, who held the titles of Lord and Lady Cymrian.

If that happens, the earth will be destroyed, and the F’dor will have succeeded. Rhapsody is a woman, a Singer of some talent, who is swept up into events of world-shattering import. He is introduced late in the first novel of the series, though readers will soon realize Ashe is not who he seems rnapsody be.

Elizabeth Haydon – Book Series In Order

In eluding Michael’s men she met ‘The Brother’ and Grunthor, adopting them to convince the town guard they were her brothers and in doing so accidentally renamed ‘The Brother’ as ‘Achmed the Snake.

Rhapsody finds out that the other half of Ashe’s soul is being used to power a vicious creature called a Rakshas, which has his very appearance due to his soul being inside of it.

The kind where everyone she comes across falls all over themselves because she’s so beautiful and can’t stop themselves from touching or eluzabeth her or staring at her or commenting on her beauty.

It’s eye-rolling; how can anyone suspend disbelief for a character so perfect?


I really rhappsody this book. I can’t think of a single one that didn’t want to either possess her ie, the bad guys or fall in love with her ie, the good guys by the end of the series.

SF : Rhapsody / Elizabeth Haydon

Jan 25, Small Creek rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I delighted in Grunthor, and felt great appreciation for Rha;sody. The book ends with a cliffhanger but I have absolutely no compulsion to read any more Haydon. If that’s your sort of thing and you don’t mind nauseatingly perfect, sugarcoated heroines, then you’ll probably like this. The worst hunk of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of reading.

Rarely is a skillful phrase actually used to do something other than ornament the page.

Otherwise, perhaps stick to the great fantasy novels that provide a more, shall we say immediate gratification. Jul 06, Lisa Kay rated it rhaspody was amazing Shelves: To Achmed’s chagrin, Rhapsody adopts Jo as her sister and the two become very close, although Jo is at the beginning distrustful and distances herself from everyone.

Aug 06, Chris rated it did not like it Shelves: Grunthor is pretty likeable in a gruff ogre sort of way. If not for a single rhapsodu of hope and interests in what was to come, I’m not sure I would’ve made it through the first time not much less the second.

Rhapsody: Child of Blood

POV characters know and later forget? I am not especially squeamish I read vampire stories and murder mysteries when I’m not reading fantasy or SFbut Rhapsody and every other book in the series has at least one passage that I found hard to handle. The island was destroyed by the star during the reign of King Gwylliam, who had foreseen the terrible destruction. One of my favourite series is the Brilliance Saga by Marcus Sakey and it is our featured series of the month.


Along with her two companions, Rhapsody fights to reunite a kingdom ravaged by war and long-standing prejudice. Characters – Achmed is a lovable dick-headed asshole the whole way. Later he was enslaved by Tsoltan, a fire demon of the F’dor race, who took possession of his name and so had him chained to himself.

Could these new evils be tied to the same demonic entity that enslaved Achmed back in Serendair? The hilarious thing about everyone singing her praises and the author portraying her as being so intelligent to have basically been granted a postgrad degree is that the actual heroine is largely rather stupid.

Symphony of Ages

I’ve been addicted to the fantasy genre since before I could read chapter books by myself. Instead, it got worse as midway, Rhapsody went through an experience that physically changed her appearance that made her unnaturally beautiful.

Since he doesn’t show up at her family farm, she divorces herself from all emotion and vows that she will never marry another, because that’s a logical and understandable reaction.

Oct 21, Chris Cutler rated it it was ok Recommended to Chris by: It’s free on Kindle Unlimited too! I used to like Mary Sue-ish characters, but for some reason, these days I have less patience with them.

I was too impatient to know what had happened to the young lovers, and whether they would ever find each other again. This page wlizabeth last edited on 20 Julyat Torturous volumes of Angel Sanctuary tops it, I think, but this has to come a close second.
