I very much enjoyed her storyline. However, I found her style of writing very difficult to follow. Sometimes, I was just lost for a while. I had no idea what she meant. However, I kept on reading and then I would find the storyline had returned. The fact that I didn't understand everything didn't appear to affect my understanding of the story. Apparently the confusing stuff wasn't relevant to the story. So why did she put all the fluff in? I found this book more of a chore to read than a relaxation. If I can remember, I won't be buying anymore of her books. I read for relaxation and entertainment. This book was only half of that requirement.

I read about this book in a newspaper and was intrigued enough to buy the first one, which I really liked. When I picked up this book however, I was in love. It took me a little bit to get into the book but once I was in, boy was I obsessed. It is surprisingly well written with a refreshing plot line that doesn't bore. It doesn't have a lot of romance in it which I was really relieved about. I love all the characters and all the world ideas the author introduces. Her descriptions are detailed but not to the point where it is excessive, just descriptive. It is a fun read. If you read it you should definitely buy both books at once because this book just starts off where the other ended, without any plot reminders or summaries, which I really liked because I am so tired of authors rehashing the previous book(s) in the first chapter. Anyway, amazing book!

This book was much better than the first. I had a hard time putting it down. Valen is fascinating character; he is so much more than meets the eye. As are so many of the other characters. The Danae are much more prevalent, and Berg did well to put the beauty of their movements into words. I really enjoyed her prose style. Intrigue and adventure were non-stop, and the relationships were so human - despite the paranormal and magical :) Excellent read, definitely a keeper.

Really, Carol Berg? For a fantasy author who has written such good novels before, these two were a sore disappointment. Don't bother, unless you're looking to be confused and get a headache.

This second installment of Valen's Story turned on its head almost everything I thought I knew at the end of "Flesh and Spirit". I was reluctant to begin this book, after the grim place the first book left me, but I was pleasantly surprised, and quite gripped, by the second half of this story. I highly recommend it!

Breath and Bone, the sequel to Flesh and Spirit, is again a masterful work of fantasy. These two books are similar to The Name of the Rose and The Name of the Wind and yet Berg has a singular vision.I highly recommend both of these books.

July09: Series as a whole.Characters: The lead was only so neat, and none of the others were *that* developed. The dark prince was a solid attempt at aleast.Plot: Actually came together well in the second book. Wraps up nicely.Style: Shoots for mystic fairy. Can't leave gritty mud. Gets lost a little in the middle.

About 8 months ago I picked up the first volume in the duology, Flesh and Spirit, and thought it was pretty good. I thought I had the plot of the second volume pretty well worked out at the time. In some points I guessed right, but in the main points, Carol Berg really surprised me. Breath and Bone is a wonderful book with a twisty plot, great characters, and beautiful prose. This two-volume set should be on every fantasy fan's must-read list! For best effect, read them one after the other without break.

This was one of the best and most creative books I've read in the fantasy genre. I have to admit that the first book in this duet took some work to get through the first half of it because there's a lot to set up. However, the second half of the first book and this whole book were worth the setup. Well done!

Beautiful world building, stunning prose, intriguing magic system (in both worlds), satisfyingly twisty plot and exceptionally well drawn, deep characters round out this remarkable conclusion to the Lighthouse series. I highly recommend both Flesh and Spirit and this novel to all fantasy readers. I suggest they be read together, as one large volume. For the rest of my review, please visit GoodReads:
