I’ve made it sound idealistic and being the last book of a long series I suppose it was more light filled and idealistic than the very dark beginnings, however complexity and cruelty and suffering and loss were still present, its positivity was tempered by loss.
The Red Queen: The Obernewtyn Chronicles Volume 7
The naming of the computer ‘God’ at Midland seems deeply ironic. Love The Red Queen: Quotes from Qheen Red Queen. Elspeth remains a dear character, and her world continues to grasp at me. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
Review/Random Thoughts On: The Red Queen by Isobelle Carmody | All The Books I Can Read
I felt so sorry for him, yet by the end of the book, it is clear that he and Elspeth will always remain friends. Has it been difficult adhering each new title to the increasingly complicated internal logic?
I bought a used copy years ago oops.
The In many ways I enjoyed this book immensely, but unfortunately I can’t pretend it was wonderful either. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Continue reading Obernewtyn Chronicles Recap Share this: While I will always wish that Isobelle had a firmer editor or whatever it was that allowed her first three-four Obernewtyn installments to be so much better than the last few, I still closed the final pages with a massive smile on my face and I’ll never regret slogging through the rough bits for the good bits.
So she view spoiler [ completes her quest, saves the world, ends up in Eden with Rushton althoug It’s done. And yet, we spent, like, a million words stuck in Habitat at the start of the book. I both loved and loathed how this ended.

The Red Queen (The Obernewtyn Chronicles, #7) by Isobelle Carmody
If you have read the other books you already know all this. The Red Queen is dull and predictable. Jul 31, Renee V rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book. Dec 05, Sarah isobells it it was ok.
The problems I had with it – The writing was not up to scratch. Somewhat poorly written, I was very bored reading much of the first half.
Also by Isobelle Carmody. I have never seen so many pointless and inappropriate exclamation points. Parts that should have been important info were over in a few pages while utterly pointless rambling and asides were given hundreds of pages. After years spent struggling to balance her desires with her responsibilities, Elspeth Gordie has fully embraced her role as the Seeker. The exploration of the ravaged landscape and the piecing together of clues combined with rushing headlong into the unknown and hoping it would pan out okay for her quest was also familiar and very enjoyable.
View all 9 comments. Great series, and a very good read. The date for the publication for this book kept getting pushed back and back with Carmody eventually releasing a statement asking her fans to be patient, she wanted to finish the story off right and well, after all she had spent such a long time with Elspeth.
However, I still didn’t regret taking the excuse to reread my favorite series. This book was less disappointing then the 6th but I could have read just the final pages and understood the entire ending. Dragon, Matthew, Dameon, Gahltha and Maruman? And no review can do it any justice at all.
OverallI find that this is probably one of the best Sci-fi fantasy stories set in a distant future written by an Australian author, yet first qjeen back in like idk the eightiess??? I deserve to know what happened to characters I had been reading about for nearly 20 years.
Loading comments… Trouble loading? I don’t know, it simply felt way too long in places that didn’t need isobbelle be long and then rushed in areas that I was genuinely drawn into.
I isohelle keep re-reading. All the characters you hope from the previous books seem to be in it and most one way or another get either what they deserve or at least a taste of it! Yes, the plot was very slow, especially the whole pages in habitat and midland an interesting plot but not enough relevance to the questwhich went on for way too long credit to Elspeths “gnawings” however after arriving at Redport, I couldn’t put it down with the incentive that I would soon get answers to the growing list of questions perpetrating my mind.
I have reread the entire series How good quen ebooks!!!! And isn’t that what people say? Read, enjoy, and tell me what you think.
I have had the Red Queen for 2 years without starting it until last week as I also could not bear it to end. Nov 19, Rachel rated it it was ok. Dragon- totally new character really with no explanation of the change.
