    The Dragon Republic []  2020-7-26 21:18

    This is a solid sequel to the first book. That being said, throughout this book, Rin is still struggling to obtain her act together. Through the first one, she was grappling with her sudden abilities and survival, and in this one she's struggling with her addiction, living up to a certain legacy, and still trying to obtain a grip on her powers, at least until about 3/4 of the method through, and that's when the potential that she's symbolized throughout the books - being an intelligent, trained solider of the most prestigious military academy in the Empire - begins to shine. She starts coming into her own. She starts acting like the commander of the Cike. She still has baggage, but it doesn't control her. She's taking advantage of her allies, and beginning to understand the power she wields. That's why it is sooooo disappointing that the ending plays out the method it does. The writing and the direction is not disappointing, just to create that clear, it's just that Rin wasn't quick enough to act before her opponents do. And it kind of broke my heart that a certain part of that played out, because I was totally rooting for that whole thing to go down. Another thing that was enjoyable was Daji. Rin's whole reason for currently living is to take out the Empress in honor of Altan, but Daji is cunning and she's been playing this android game for a long time. Just when you think she's out of cards, boom! she hits you will a falling mast. Anyway, if you liked the first Poppy Battle book, you will like The Dragon Republic, too. I can't wait to read the next one.

    The Dragon Republic []  2020-7-26 21:18

    TW: war, death, rapeI honestly feel like I like this book less than The Poppy War. I was leaning towards a two star through about 89% of this book. The latest few chapters saved this book for me and created me wish to finish this trilogy. I was close to dnfing this book a lot of times because I just could not hold up with what was going on.I’m not going to lie, I still don’t know what happened through a lot of this book. All I know is, that ending was intense! I don’t wish to go into detail about this book as it is a sequel and I don’t wish to give away things that happened in the first book.I used to like Rin. I just could not stand her in this book. She’s become so whiny and it was so annoying. This book was also nothing but war. I kinda miss the school setting in the first book. I felt like there was always something crazy going on. There wasn’t a dull moment.I will say that I will be in no hurry to pick up the third book once it’s released.3/5 Stars

    Based on other reviews, I was waiting for the ending to wow me. It didn't. Maybe I've read too a lot of high fantasies that over-rely on plot twists because I saw the ending coming a mile away. The hero development was also extremely flat with no reader sympathy for the MC. Why do we care if she achieves her one goal? Like the first book, this one struggled with tone. The characters don't act, talk, or think like soldiers and increasing their ages in this book may have helped. What the author does do extremely well is world-building with historical influences. I'll read the third one, but I may not preorder it.

    No second book allow down here, this book takes everything you think you know and turns it upside down. With so a lot of twists and turns, you'll be shaking your head in amazement. Awesome wars and politicking along with mad gods makes this one heck of a story. Oh yeah, characters are good, writing is too notch and the imagination that goes into this book was greatly appreciated by this reader. Most definitely a must read story.

    Ok read not nearly as amazing as the first book in this series. Alton, a hero who was killed in the Poppy Battles book, is mentioned so a lot of times in this story, u wonder why the author killed him off in the first place. In almost every chapter of this book the main character, Rin constantly obsesses over Alton, which becomes very annoying. Sadly this story reminds me of so a lot of books I’ve read where the amazing guys are easily manipulated by the opposition because of their own stupidity.

    I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this book for months! This is certainly one of those sequels for which a reader waits impatiently as soon as news of its release comes out. I have been looking forward to reading the next book by R. F. Kuang since I rushed through the first Poppy Battle book.I still have fun the magic and Rin’s characterization. Her newly found heritage as a Speerly has definitely shaped her approach to the book’s events. In this book, she seems much more comfortable with her abilities and status as a shaman fighter in the Cike. There is a fair balance of political posturing and violent confrontations. The Dragon Republic takes the reader in a fresh direction as Rin and her “allies” work towards defeating the Empress and the Northern Warlords. The presence of the Hesperians certainly did not support matters, especially with their believed superiority over the Nikarans and their view of the Cike as damned souls to be l in all, this sequel was definitely worth the wait.I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The Dragon Republic []  2020-7-26 21:18

    A brilliant, dark, heavy, sequel to one of my favorite books and debuts latest year. Ever since I finished The Poppy War, its sequel quick became one of my most anticipated books of this year. The Dragon Republic picks up a few months later after the happenings of TPW and our story goes from is story is very various from its predecessor. We have completely ditched the school and training format for an all out strategic and battle format and it absolutely worked. We kind of obtain to see Rin use the skills she has learned but also see her in a fresh role and dealing with the aftermath of TPW. I'm no expert with PTSD, but I do believe it was handled really well in this book. Everyone experienced it a small differently, everyone handled it differently. I am absolutely tangled up in these characters. Yes, there are those I should hate but they all drive the story when the time is needed. What I mean by that is, there are no unnecessary characters floating throughout this story. Everyone has a purpose, a motivation, and it is a refreshing sight to behold. I enjoyed also getting to see a small more in depth look at how the shamanic powers work and exploring that aspect of the series. I am really interested in seeing where this book goes for its final outing and am eager to see if after this book takes a fresh spot in my favorite series of all time because at this rate I have no doubt in my mind that is exactly what is going to is book is still very dark and hard hitting at times. Some of the scenes in this book are so graphic. So definitely be aware of that whenever you read this series. If you are one who gets unsettled easily then probably steer clear or go in with guards up knowing that this book with some massive hitting topics.

    The Dragon Republic []  2020-7-26 21:18

    The second book in the trilogy was slower to start. Rin and her group of shamans are adrift, mostly because of her opium addiction, until a powerful warlord gives them a purpose. Things don't go as planned and Rin ends up having her abilities bound. The first half of the book is then taken by a military campaign where Rin is once again a regular soldier, and despite the constant action, it gets rather boring. Things take a turn for more interesting at the half-way point, and from then on the story and the pace in the first book, Rin is constantly looking for stronger persons to rely on whom she could respect and who would give their approval to her. I think it stems from her being an orphan, as she tends to latch onto father-figures. Time and again, she is allow down by these people. At the end of the book she finally comes to a conclusion that she is the strongest person there is and the only one worth relying on. The setting for the latest book is perfect.

    I liked the first book. I’m half method through this one and have been skimming — will skip to the end. This one drags on and on, with very small movement or hero development. The battle is vicious and everyone is engaged in killing or intimidating civilians. Rin loses her access to her power and we wait and wait...for something, ANYTHING to happen, other than repeated wars in which the vanquished are subjected to violence. All sides are vicious, including Rin. Skip it.

    This book is very various from anything I have read in a while. It avoid some of the huge cliches (although it dives in head first in others), the characters and storyline is also interesting. It is nice finally reading something that do not shy away from describing the gruesome reality of war. It includes some incredibly brutal scenes, so for the people always asking whether a given book include violence: Yes! This book also have a very interesting magic system, and there is definitely much to be discovered here in future books. There are some things I don't like in this book. For instance the psyche was supposed to be this elite group of highly skilled people. I don't really see any evidence for that in this book. Everyone just running around like headless chicken. It also annoy me how easily alliances shift in this book. You can have people on one side of the battle that after one conversation decides to switch sides, and this does not only happen once. Still, all in all I really enjoyed the book, give it four stars, and eagerly await the next one.

    I remember liking the Poppy Battle quite a bit but this book is disappointing on a lot of levels. We follow the main hero through dialogue after dialogue of wasted peevish temper tantrums. Hard to have sympathy. The globe is stale and the plot relatively stagnant. Feels like a forced second book waiting for a third.

    I don’t think this book is quite as amazing as the first one. That would have been a very high bar to reach. Still this was an perfect book! It seemed somewhat disjointed in beginning as Rin struggled with her opium addiction. I think that was appropriate. The book kept me up late turning pages at a rapid pace. Now that I’ve finished it I will be waiting impatiently for the next book in the series!

    Whew, that was an intense read! I gave five stars because after careful consideration I realized that Alan Blooms interpretive essay really helped me to understand the The Republic to a various degree. The first ten books are the shoes, the interpretive essay is the shoe lace and it ties all of it up very neatly. To read something over 2,000 years old that’s been translated from Ancient Greek is a task in itself, I commend this translations interpreter he did a stellar job. This book is Massive and not a book you can just pick up and expect to read in a weekend, its not littered with photos that make a excellent picture for you to burn thru, it’s page after page after page of thought, so it slows you down, a lot. Each page forces you to think about what you’re reading, sometimes you have ZERO Idea and that’s ok, that’s where Bloom’s Interpretive Essay comes in. To pick up this book and commit to finishing it is a Challenge I highly recommend, you’ll walk away a better person with a sense of accomplishment and more thoughtful mind. I’ve read over 200 books and I think it’s safe to say that this was the most challenging book I’ve ever place my mind too, if your looking for a challenge then you’ve found it. Satisfied reading 📖

    Do not hard-cover black book by Scholar Select. It only includes the 3rd Plato Republic book; 64 pages long with large margins. At least several pages are smeared and unreadable. The excuse is that the original photocopying job was not good so they wish to preserve the incompetence. They've gotta be pocketing $21.94 of the $21.95 price.

    I looked up this book by it's isbn number. The ver I received was not the copy pictured, which I thought would be fine until I got to reading it- I required it for a class so I required the specific ver from Penguin Classics both because of the page numbers and the translation. The copy I received was not the Penguin Classics version, despite it saying that it would be both on the www service and on the receipt. Even working around page numbers this copy is basically unusable because it is the wrong translation. Very upsetting because I prefer to write in my books and hold them rather than borrow from other people. Further, this book was listed as fresh and it is most definitely used- writing in multiple places, obviously a small beat up. That wouldn't have been a breaker except for the fact (and I know I'm repeating myself) that it is the complete wrong ver and not what it was advertised as.

    Plato’s Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) was written in 380 BC and this ver was translated by Benjamin Jowett in 1871. It is a fiction book in the format of a discussion between Socrates and others. It aims to debate and conclusively determine the meaning of Justice. Socrates, the main character, was a Greek philosopher and the mentor of Plato. His philosophy is the basis and origin of the western philosophy. As a high schooler who often debates related ideals and questions, I found this book to be very eye-opening and fascinating. Socrates doctrine proves itself real even in this day in age. That just goes to show, when it comes to ideals and behavior, humans haven’t changed very much. Republic is very well written and even after thousands of years it still captures its audience with its provoking revelations and relatable content. If you often search yourself debating related questions then you might just search your answers here, but if you dislike philosophy or are set in your ways you probably will not search this book to be interesting. For me, this book was an enjoyable challenge and I definitely would read it again.

    A book that changed my life. Everyone should read it since it's written in an easily accessible language but the universal truths contained within are timeless and apply to any race, religion, gender or political preference. I believe that if people thought about what Plato tried to create us understand, the society we live in would benefit tremendously.

    This Kindle edition is not as advertised and entirely useless. First and foremost, it is absolutely not an annotated edition; there is not a single note anywhere in the text. For that matter, there are no Stephanus numbers—the universal page numbers for all editions of Plato—so you will never be able to either cite this edition or search anything referred to by other writers. I'm not even sure that this is the Reeves/Grube translation, as there is no publication info whatsoever. Avoid this like the Athenian plague.

    The physical quality of this book (cover, paper, text, etc) is just fine, but this is yet another edition of the Jowett translation of the Republic, which is now in the public domain. If that's what you're looking for, this is fine I guess, but there are newer and arguably better translations for about the same (The Reeve translation particularly comes to mind), and there are readers with more of the dialogues than just the Republic in them (all Jowett translations) for about the same as well.

    I'm trying to alternate between fun audiobooks and ones that I feel I should read rather than having any desire to do so. Plato's Republic was in that second group. I honestly expected to hate it. But it's one of the fundamental classics. So on the list it goes to listen to while I commute. And I loved it. It may have been that it was a full cast audio but it honestly did feel like being with a group. Maybe a quarter of the method in I realized what it reminded me of: when you are at a very mellow party in college and people begin discussing things that are really "deep, man." And there's that one person who is method too into it and dominates the conversation. So that tickled me most of the book. The other thing that was really engaging was how much of the ideas in this book can be seen in the modern world. In that method it created it feel like an anthropological study and it kept making me say, "neat," even when I disagreed with whatever point was being made. Overall I would recommend this audiobook ver because it created it come alive.

    Altogether this is a amazing quality modern English reproduction of one of the most necessary and most ancient classics. The form factor is comfortable to hold,, not too huge or too small, not too thin or too thick. The font is also very comfortable. The size of the font and the glyph of the font while not anything fancy or spectacular and even bordering boring create for virtually no eye strain at any reasonable reading distance from full arm's length to less than a foot away.Overall I am very pleased. If I were to any critical comments I can think of two:1) I am a tad concerned with how well the binding will keep up over time. It appears a tad tight.2) While I feel the design was not accident and is likely intended to bring an element of visual result to the reproduction of an ancient classic, the black-on-black of the front title, spline title and the background create the book less identifiable. That is not much of an problem since the proud owner of this book will recognize it for years to come from its fairly rare though practical form factor together with the sheer blackness of the book, but if a book owner were to ask a mate to go pull Plato's Republic from the owner's stack, the unfamiliar guest will stumble to spot the title. This is, of course, very trivial. Overall, I like the result and search it various so that it stands out on my stack, and the darkness feels somewhat fitting from the antiquity of this timeless classic that would be tragic were ever society to loose website of one of the most necessary works of philosophy in all of civilization. The work undeniably shaped modern civic institutions.

In that method it created it feel like an anthropological study and it kept making me say, "neat," even when I disagreed with whatever point was being made. Overall I would recommend this audiobook ver because it created it come alive.

    The Republic (AmazonClassics Edition) []  2019-12-20 18:34

    Do not hard-cover black book by Scholar Select. It only includes the 3rd Plato Republic book; 64 pages long with large margins. At least several pages are smeared and unreadable. The excuse is that the original photocopying job was not good so they wish to preserve the incompetence. They've gotta be pocketing $21.94 of the $21.95 price.

    A book that changed my life. Everyone should read it since it's written in an easily accessible language but the universal truths contained within are timeless and apply to any race, religion, gender or political preference. I believe that if people thought about what Plato tried to create us understand, the society we live in would benefit tremendously.

    I looked up this book by it's isbn number. The ver I received was not the copy pictured, which I thought would be fine until I got to reading it- I required it for a class so I required the specific ver from Penguin Classics both because of the page numbers and the translation. The copy I received was not the Penguin Classics version, despite it saying that it would be both on the www service and on the receipt. Even working around page numbers this copy is basically unusable because it is the wrong translation. Very upsetting because I prefer to write in my books and hold them rather than borrow from other people. Further, this book was listed as fresh and it is most definitely used- writing in multiple places, obviously a small beat up. That wouldn't have been a breaker except for the fact (and I know I'm repeating myself) that it is the complete wrong ver and not what it was advertised as.

    Effectively impossible to sign into the app. Multiple methods for signing in are provided, but all require an absurd amount of info and then still require you to make an extra account. There are banking apps that are easier to access. Furthermore, the application fails to recognize the town field, even when a value has been entered into it. In the end, it's simply not worth the trouble. Uninstalled.

    Renewing the Republic []  2020-1-22 20:29

    For those who don't know him, Michael Higgins is a member of the Irish Labour Party who was elected President in 2011. Higgins was progressive when progressive wasn't cool. Of working class origins, he supported things like rights long before those ideas reached the Irish mainstream.His book is a collection of speeches during and before the time he launched his campaign for President. A lot of of them date to the period shortly after the collapse of the so-called Celtic Tiger economic boom. In that sense, it's a amazing historical reference piece regarding an necessary part of Irish history, and the speeches' perspective -- which highlight the irony of the difficulties facing ordinary Irishmen while the then-government in power was busy bailing out wealthy European bankers -- is one of a kind.

    The content is the same as the Arizona Republic hard copy edition, but the Kindle Application is lacking. First, the Kindle edition is dominated by sports stories which I have no interest in. For example 22 sports stores versus 13 local stories. Secondly, it looks like the Kindle edition is place together by a computer with no human over sight or quality control. For example, the title of a latest article was "PNI0909-spt asu facebook 090520120131pb". Reading the article it was about fresh football coaches. Lastly, there are only scant images and graphics. I usually only the Kindle Arizona Republic on Sunday and they'll have to obtain serious about their application before I will subscribe.

    The Autumn Republic is the final book of the Powder Mage Trilogy. Set in a globe reminiscent of the early 1800s, magic is alive. Powder Mages exert control over gunpowder and use their magic as marksmen. The Privileged control the different elements with strong results. The trilogy began with the overthrow of the King of Adro. Field Marshal Tamas sets into motion a series of happenings that could lead to the destruction of the e true question for the finale of the trilogy is the payoff. Does it bring the story to a satisfying conclusion after about 2000 pages? Absolutely. Even the hero I found annoying at the outset was redeemed by the finale. If you have fun fantasy worlds with complex globe building, intriguing characters, and new magic, this is a series to check out.

    I like this series a amazing however I cannot say I'm super-enthusiastic about it. I've read 2 or four of the novels by this point and the whole "not-cocaine" *powder* fueling most of the mages' magic gets tiresome after a while. I can't really place it down on any one thing however, the whole drug-abuse angle wears thin after you read a book or two, and then it's basically just a Mistborn novel without the roof-jumping-porn scenes.I would like to like this series a lot more however, it just wore thin on me a lot faster than I realized or expected, which is a shame because I'm huge into fantasy settings which contain muskets etc.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    Every book Brian McClellan has written in the Powder Mage Trilogy has been better than the last, culminating in a conclusion that exceeded my already high ter PROMISE OF BLOOD introduced us to Tamas and Taniel and the rest of the outstanding cast of characters who are the heartbeat of making this story work, McClellan really stepped up his android game with THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN, lending depth to Tamas’s character, developing the relationship between Taniel and Ka-Poel and moving the plot forward with plenty of THE AUTUMN REPUBLIC, all the groundwork McClellan laid in THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN comes to fruition with a flood of action at a breakneck pace. Somehow, even in the midst of all the plot McClellan churns through, he still manages to develop his characters in meaningful ways and complete their arcs in ways that are ultimately well-woven and very my reviews of the first two books, I was critical of Nila, the one hero I didn’t have fun and who didn’t seem to have a role in the story — she just didn’t fit in a method that every other piece at McClellan’s disposal did. In THE AUTUMN REPUBLIC, she gets more POV time than any other character, and while this probably would have terrified me if I’d learned how prominent she would be beforehand, McClellan uses his time with her wisely, developing her into a hero who, with just a bit of tweaking, suddenly fits seamlessly into the globe and , McClellan gave what I found to be a fascinating description of how the hero developed:One of the viewpoints in the Powder Mage Trilogy is a young laundress named Nila. She kind of snuck into the Promise of Blood, with only a handful of scenes compared to the tons of scenes for each of the other characters. I knew right from the beginning that she was going to be important, and I had an inkling of the direction I wanted to take her, but I wasn’t 100% sure where her street would lead. Most fans seemed fairly ambivalent about her and I was tempted to chop her role in Crimson Campaign.But I knew she was going to be important. I left her in book two and gave her a couple more scenes. The consequences of her actions had a small more impact, and this had the desired effect: people seemed to become more attached to her journey. But they weren’t too attached to her. I was still tempted to minimize her part and allow her plot line peter en when Autumn Republic came along, Nila managed to surprise even me. She was suddenly one of the most enjoyable characters to write, with cool, strong scenes and a stronger plot arc than I’d given her in both the previous books ter watching McClellan do a masterful job of developing his characters — even “minor” characters — it was impressive to see him take a hero I hadn’t cared about through two novels and turn her into a major player in a novel that managed to up the tension over the first two books in the series.Just as he stuck the landing with Nila, McClellan did an perfect job pulling everything together for a satisfying conclusion. He leaves a few threads hanging for a return to Adro with another series, but prioritizes the main characters and leaves them all with endings that create sense for their hero arcs. That attention to character, even with a huge cast of characters, is what separates McClellan and the Powder Mage Trilogy from much of the pack.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    The excellent end to a simply unbelievable trilogy!!! (not counting the short stories which are certainly worth reading in their own right but I think are best suited to fans of the core trilogy)....This series has everything you could wish in an epic fantasy, likable but often flawed characters, a magic system that is special and interesting, TONS of plot twists and complex threads that all lead together towards a seamless conclusion. After the first two books in the series Brian McClellan was already becoming one of my favorite authors and this just firmly entrenched him among the best. I'm not one to give away "spoilers" or summaries in my reviews... there are plenty of reviews for that if you wish them... so I'll simply leave it at this....The Autumn Republic is an early entry into the best books of the year and it's going to be hard to top!

    The physical quality of this book (cover, paper, text, etc) is just fine, but this is yet another edition of the Jowett translation of the Republic, which is now in the public domain. If that's what you're looking for, this is fine I guess, but there are newer and arguably better translations for about the same (The Reeve translation particularly comes to mind), and there are readers with more of the dialogues than just the Republic in them (all Jowett translations) for about the same as well.

    Whew, that was an intense read! I gave five stars because after careful consideration I realized that Alan Blooms interpretive essay really helped me to understand the The Republic to a various degree. The first ten books are the shoes, the interpretive essay is the shoe lace and it ties all of it up very neatly. To read something over 2,000 years old that’s been translated from Ancient Greek is a task in itself, I commend this translations interpreter he did a stellar job. This book is Massive and not a book you can just pick up and expect to read in a weekend, its not littered with photos that make a excellent picture for you to burn thru, it’s page after page after page of thought, so it slows you down, a lot. Each page forces you to think about what you’re reading, sometimes you have ZERO Idea and that’s ok, that’s where Bloom’s Interpretive Essay comes in. To pick up this book and commit to finishing it is a Challenge I highly recommend, you’ll walk away a better person with a sense of accomplishment and more thoughtful mind. I’ve read over 200 books and I think it’s safe to say that this was the most challenging book I’ve ever place my mind too, if your looking for a challenge then you’ve found it. Satisfied reading 📖

    Altogether this is a amazing quality modern English reproduction of one of the most necessary and most ancient classics. The form factor is comfortable to hold,, not too huge or too small, not too thin or too thick. The font is also very comfortable. The size of the font and the glyph of the font while not anything fancy or spectacular and even bordering boring create for virtually no eye strain at any reasonable reading distance from full arm's length to less than a foot away.Overall I am very pleased. If I were to any critical comments I can think of two:1) I am a tad concerned with how well the binding will keep up over time. It appears a tad tight.2) While I feel the design was not accident and is likely intended to bring an element of visual result to the reproduction of an ancient classic, the black-on-black of the front title, spline title and the background create the book less identifiable. That is not much of an problem since the proud owner of this book will recognize it for years to come from its fairly rare though practical form factor together with the sheer blackness of the book, but if a book owner were to ask a mate to go pull Plato's Republic from the owner's stack, the unfamiliar guest will stumble to spot the title. This is, of course, very trivial. Overall, I like the result and search it various so that it stands out on my stack, and the darkness feels somewhat fitting from the antiquity of this timeless classic that would be tragic were ever society to loose website of one of the most necessary works of philosophy in all of civilization. The work undeniably shaped modern civic institutions.

    Plato’s Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) was written in 380 BC and this ver was translated by Benjamin Jowett in 1871. It is a fiction book in the format of a discussion between Socrates and others. It aims to debate and conclusively determine the meaning of Justice. Socrates, the main character, was a Greek philosopher and the mentor of Plato. His philosophy is the basis and origin of the western philosophy. As a high schooler who often debates related ideals and questions, I found this book to be very eye-opening and fascinating. Socrates doctrine proves itself real even in this day in age. That just goes to show, when it comes to ideals and behavior, humans haven’t changed very much. Republic is very well written and even after thousands of years it still captures its audience with its provoking revelations and relatable content. If you often search yourself debating related questions then you might just search your answers here, but if you dislike philosophy or are set in your ways you probably will not search this book to be interesting. For me, this book was an enjoyable challenge and I definitely would read it again.

Two articles from the A section, one from Valley & State, one from the Living section. That was all. I had been forwarned that it didn't carry the "extras" but what came through that day was beyond disappointment. I expected it to have all the regular full-length articles. Never again. And it makes me hesitant to test any other newspapers. Kindle has a long method to go presenting a newspaper. I love my Kindle for books but not newspapers.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    Man was that ever a fitting end to this Trilogy!! The Autumn Republic continued the trend of just the right amount of action and politics!! The story beautiful much picks up right where we left off and it takes off a break neck speed. We follow the story of Tamas, Taniel, and Adamat again but Nila who has been a little side hero becomes a fourth point of view hero which I greatly appreciated, her hero always intrigued me, even more so in the final book. Thanks to the POV inclusion of Nila we obtain a ton more backstory and info on just how the Privileged magic system truly works. The Privileged were always so mysterious because you knew of them just not how they worked. I also really liked the full addition of Nila because along with Tamas and Taniel her story arc was so so good. It definitely was required due to the fact that Adamat felt like he lost his purpose to be honest. Had he been removed from the story completely I think this book could have been outstanding. One thing Brian does wonders with is his hero development. All the characters had their time to shine and from books one to the end of book three each and every single hero came out the finale changed. This is real more so in Borbador, who is more a side hero but man is he a various hero from when we are introduced to him in Promise of Blood. I truly stand by me saying that this series is a unbelievable debut for Brian McClellan and if he consistently improves with each and every book then I most certainly cannot wait to read what comes next.

    Book three continues in the same capacity as the previous books. It's fast-paced, thrilling with no dull moments. There's magic, war, friendship, family and death. There is battle between men and battle among the Gods. It's a spectacular part of the book, Gods using their eld Marshal Tamas leads the battle effort, fighting the Kez and multiple traitors. A potential foe arrives at the shores of Adro. With Tamas and his troops away, the people must handle the fresh arrival on their own. Adro must decide what to create of the man and his army. Is he there to cause battle or is he there to bring peace?Field Marshal Tamas remains a formidable ally and enemy. Real to his word, Tamas continues to battle, to finish what was started the night of the a sad, heart-wrenching ending, Tamas, Taniel, Bo, Vlora and the soldiers war to fulfill their purpose to create Adro a democratic republic, from the tyrannical rule of Kings. These men and women give their lives for their country and their loyalty is the end, when the dust settles, even the most war scarred and tested soldiers grieve, love and forgive. Battle is complicated and takes on fresh forms, even after guns are laid down.Excellent story. Highly recommend the series!

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    "The Autumn Republic" is a thrilling and fitting conclusion to Brian McClellan's Powder Mage trilogy, and is a book that I very much enjoyed reading.Picking up a couple of weeks after the happenings of "The Crimson Campaign", "The Autumn Republic" starts with the main characters of the book still scattered. Tamas, along with Vlora and Olem, are just making it back to Adopest, Adamat is working with Bo and Nila are working to explore what happened to Taniel and Tamas, while Taniel and Ka-poel are hiding away in the mountains not too far from Budwiel. McClellan continues to use Tamas, Adamat, and Taniel as his main POV characters, but also adds Nila who has a much larger role in this book than she did earlier in the series - and perhaps who changes and develops the most as a hero in the in the previous books in the trilogy, there is a lot of action in this book, with wars ranging from corps sized with multiple brigades on each side in action, to the smaller and more private wars that have been a feature of the novels. Both are written well, with the larger scale action no less compelling and exciting than that on a smaller scale - though there is much individual action in each. Reading the books is very much like a combination of historical fiction like that Bernard Cornwell wrote in his Richard Sharpe novels, and epic fantasy with the magic systems that go along with that. And while McClellan isn't terribly specific in how his magic systems work, though there is more in this book than others, in a lot of ways that makes for a story that is a lot more "fun" in the rough the course of the novel the characters go through both ups and downs, coming together and then being forced apart again by circumstances, and I found the conclusion to be both compelling and moving. McClellan definitely ties up a lot of of the story threads that he wove across the trilogy, but does leave some begin along with the hope that this isn't the latest we might see of at least some of the characters - the fact that he's already planning a fresh trilogy on a various continent in his Powder Mage universe set after this one does create this reader hopeful anyway. I wasn't entirely surprised by the ending, but was very moved by it. It was a strong conclusion, and a fitting end to the trilogy. I look forward very much to seeing where McClellan goes next.

The excuse is that the original photocopying job was not good so they wish to preserve the incompetence. They've gotta be pocketing $21.94 of the $21.95 price.

    The Republic of Plato []  2019-12-27 19:6

    This Kindle edition is not as advertised and entirely useless. First and foremost, it is absolutely not an annotated edition; there is not a single note anywhere in the text. For that matter, there are no Stephanus numbers—the universal page numbers for all editions of Plato—so you will never be able to either cite this edition or search anything referred to by other writers. I'm not even sure that this is the Reeves/Grube translation, as there is no publication info whatsoever. Avoid this like the Athenian plague.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    First off, I was really looking forward to this book. The Crimson Campaign was one of my favorite books of latest year. The entire trilogy is beautiful amazing even with the slow begin to Promise of Blood, but I have to say that McClellan wasn’t quite able to stick the landing with the Autumn Republic. I was hoping to love this book and am somewhat disappointed to merely like my mind the largest issue is the falling apart of the Adran/Kez conflict. I don’t know if the author got bored with the battle or just wanted to throw a twist in, but it didn’t work, especially after two books where this is a central focus. I found it frustrating that it was resolved in too tidy of a manner and all the while no one in the troops seems to message that lines of communication out of the capital are nonexistent, so the “real” conflict is hidden from most of the ong with that, too a lot of characters end up overpowered and yet at the same time, pointless. Seriously, Nila’s storyline was done after the Lord Vetas incident in the previous book, but now she’s the super unique Privileged who barely knows how to use her powers but still does amazing magic. Nope. Not buying it. Taniel and Ka-poel have the same issues. I was even okay with her outsized abilities as she practices an entirely various type of magic so conceivably she could be mediocre and still seem strong versus the magic practiced in Adro, but no, she’s apparently insanely strong too. Taniel’s magic has apparently transcended the normal parameters of powder mages, but honestly, it is used to no result in this book. As a character, he has managed to go nowhere over the course of the trilogy, which saddens me as he had such potential. I also didn't appreciate that the magic system's internal consistencies aren't as solid as they should be, particularly in reference to gods, dead gods, and those stupid stly, I think McClellan blew the opportunity to discover just how hard it is to establish fresh forms of government on the ashes of a deposed monarchy. Yes, the royalists were around in the first book, but by the third, we have a country that is on board with all of this change business and the only issue is the foreigners who won’t stop interfering with Adro. I understand the compulsion to not place too much reality there (in true life, Tamas would have never stepped aside and poof, he’s no longer the amazing guy), but the characters in Adopest would have had true stakes to with. Instead, we have a reasonably fair election right off of the bat in a country that had no representative assembly at all and I’m supposed to this as the tidy ending. That’s about as realistic as the US’s nation building exercises of this century succeeding. Along this same vein, one of the characters even mentions the religious right. ::head desk:: With no history of representative government, that statement makes zero sense in the globe what did I like? Tamas. I would follow this hero anywhere, including lifelong dictatorship. Does he create crummy decisions sometimes, absolutely. Is he a not good father, probably not as much as Taniel thinks, but certainly not going to victory any awards. I cared what he cared about even when I didn’t wish to, and that’s what makes me like a book. I loved how imperfect of a person he is, and that he knew it, but still worked for what he considered the greater amazing knowing his less than pure motivations. Additionally, Adamat and his interactions with secondary characters were top notch as it has been the entire trilogy. I overall liked the book, above mentioned quibbles aside, and am satisfied with the time I’ve invested in reading this trilogy.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    I really enjoyed this book, as I've done with McClellan's other two e reason I am only giving it four stars instead of five is because, weirdly enough, this book felt more like a traditional "book 2" in a fantasy trilogy than a book 3. There's no clearly defined villain, there's no fresh treachery or military reverses that need to be overcome as in previous books, and the foils for Bo and his apprentice seem conjured out of thin air, with no foreshadowing for them from the previous books. Adamant's three-book long quest sort of sputters to a halt and is handled off screen. Our old opponents from the previous books just roll over and play dead for the heroes... and while it's fun to have a triumphant "smashing of evil" time and again, there's just not enough left to maintain dramatic tension in the book until the very climax. Which is quite good, and very dramatic.Otherwise, all the hallmarks of McClellan's writing are there. Solid dialogue, amazing worldbuilding, and very well written action sequences. I'm disappointed that he's not going to write a fourth book in the series with the same characters, but I am indeed looking forward to what else he'll do in his world.

    The Autumn Republic []  2020-1-22 22:56

    Amazing series, perfect finish. I see a future for Bo and Taniel related to that of Fafhrd and the Grey mouser, these characters have the same ability for mayhem and deviltry. at least I hope this is true. This series took me by surprise, I purchased the first book on a whim, and happily sped through it, then the second, then the third. very fond of the hero development and growth, almost all characters developed in some fashion along the way, and that takes foresight and planning to create it seem natural, it did. For fresh readers, pick up book #1 in the series, but I would caution you to know you will likely be trundling through these full length novels at a pell mell pace. Editing could have been given a slightly sterner hand, but to me, that takes a back seat to pride in continuity of story. Please plan more, expand upon the characters still with us, Vlora, Orem, and all the others, even Adamat could use his own story, or Sousmith. most importantly, Taniel and Bo, along with their two love interests, should be pure fodder for writing imaginative stories for the foreseeable future. amazing reads

    What happened to the content? I have read the Kindle ver of the Republic for a couple of years now whenever I am traveling away from home. On my most latest trip of a few days I see that the content has been reduced significantly. There is no local/regional news, no editorial items, and no entertainment news These all used to be included. Now I see only 8 or 9 news stuff and about a dozen sports articles. I realize it only costs me 49¢ a day, but come on, why such a drastic cutback in what was a beautiful amazing product? I guess I can take this off my "buy" list.

    The Republic (AmazonClassics Edition) []  2019-12-20 18:34

    Whew, that was an intense read! I gave five stars because after careful consideration I realized that Alan Blooms interpretive essay really helped me to understand the The Republic to a various degree. The first ten books are the shoes, the interpretive essay is the shoe lace and it ties all of it up very neatly. To read something over 2,000 years old that’s been translated from Ancient Greek is a task in itself, I commend this translations interpreter he did a stellar job. This book is Massive and not a book you can just pick up and expect to read in a weekend, its not littered with photos that make a excellent picture for you to burn thru, it’s page after page after page of thought, so it slows you down, a lot. Each page forces you to think about what you’re reading, sometimes you have ZERO Idea and that’s ok, that’s where Bloom’s Interpretive Essay comes in. To pick up this book and commit to finishing it is a Challenge I highly recommend, you’ll walk away a better person with a sense of accomplishment and more thoughtful mind. I’ve read over 200 books and I think it’s safe to say that this was the most challenging book I’ve ever place my mind too, if your looking for a challenge then you’ve found it. Satisfied reading 📖

    Altogether this is a amazing quality modern English reproduction of one of the most necessary and most ancient classics. The form factor is comfortable to hold,, not too huge or too small, not too thin or too thick. The font is also very comfortable. The size of the font and the glyph of the font while not anything fancy or spectacular and even bordering boring create for virtually no eye strain at any reasonable reading distance from full arm's length to less than a foot away.Overall I am very pleased. If I were to any critical comments I can think of two:1) I am a tad concerned with how well the binding will keep up over time. It appears a tad tight.2) While I feel the design was not accident and is likely intended to bring an element of visual result to the reproduction of an ancient classic, the black-on-black of the front title, spline title and the background create the book less identifiable. That is not much of an problem since the proud owner of this book will recognize it for years to come from its fairly rare though practical form factor together with the sheer blackness of the book, but if a book owner were to ask a mate to go pull Plato's Republic from the owner's stack, the unfamiliar guest will stumble to spot the title. This is, of course, very trivial. Overall, I like the result and search it various so that it stands out on my stack, and the darkness feels somewhat fitting from the antiquity of this timeless classic that would be tragic were ever society to loose website of one of the most necessary works of philosophy in all of civilization. The work undeniably shaped modern civic institutions.

    Plato’s Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) was written in 380 BC and this ver was translated by Benjamin Jowett in 1871. It is a fiction book in the format of a discussion between Socrates and others. It aims to debate and conclusively determine the meaning of Justice. Socrates, the main character, was a Greek philosopher and the mentor of Plato. His philosophy is the basis and origin of the western philosophy. As a high schooler who often debates related ideals and questions, I found this book to be very eye-opening and fascinating. Socrates doctrine proves itself real even in this day in age. That just goes to show, when it comes to ideals and behavior, humans haven’t changed very much. Republic is very well written and even after thousands of years it still captures its audience with its provoking revelations and relatable content. If you often search yourself debating related questions then you might just search your answers here, but if you dislike philosophy or are set in your ways you probably will not search this book to be interesting. For me, this book was an enjoyable challenge and I definitely would read it again.

    I looked up this book by it's isbn number. The ver I received was not the copy pictured, which I thought would be fine until I got to reading it- I required it for a class so I required the specific ver from Penguin Classics both because of the page numbers and the translation. The copy I received was not the Penguin Classics version, despite it saying that it would be both on the www service and on the receipt. Even working around page numbers this copy is basically unusable because it is the wrong translation. Very upsetting because I prefer to write in my books and hold them rather than borrow from other people. Further, this book was listed as fresh and it is most definitely used- writing in multiple places, obviously a small beat up. That wouldn't have been a breaker except for the fact (and I know I'm repeating myself) that it is the complete wrong ver and not what it was advertised as.

    A book that changed my life. Everyone should read it since it's written in an easily accessible language but the universal truths contained within are timeless and apply to any race, religion, gender or political preference. I believe that if people thought about what Plato tried to create us understand, the society we live in would benefit tremendously.

    The physical quality of this book (cover, paper, text, etc) is just fine, but this is yet another edition of the Jowett translation of the Republic, which is now in the public domain. If that's what you're looking for, this is fine I guess, but there are newer and arguably better translations for about the same (The Reeve translation particularly comes to mind), and there are readers with more of the dialogues than just the Republic in them (all Jowett translations) for about the same as well.
