Wraeththu Characters Down On His Luck, And Haunted By His Questionable Past, Cal Comes To Realise He Cannot Escape His Destiny, And That The Har He Once Loved And Believed Dead Is Now Ruler Of All Wraeththu This volume follows Cal, the unhappy har who is running from his past and leaving a trail of broken hearts in his wake The book starts out well enough, with a dark feel matching the mindset of its narrator, but it drags on too long for my taste Even Cal complains about how drawn out his journey of self discovery is The conclusion also underwhelmed me, though it did wrap up the trilogy I suppose the book met my expectations but just didn t exceed them in the way that the first two books did This volume follows Cal, the unhappy har who is running from his past and leaving a trail of

books did If I had an interest in Wicca, I do think this volume would have appealedbecause of its focus on magic and the duality of dark light in human nature.My chief complaint with Fulfilments is the revelation of the existence of view spoiler a female origin hermaphrodite tribe hide spoiler This detail overcomplicates things and is not explored thoroughly enough, giving it a tacked on feel I found myself unable to like any of these characters or care about their future Also, let s get real here how can I take a character named Panthera seriously I literally cringed every time he was called my little pantherine Gross Rating 3 of fiveWraeththu burst onto the barren LGBT science fiction scene in the late 1980s with a blaze of attention It was unique Hermaphroditic men who fucked each other and made babies somehow, I never really got with that part of the program They look like human men because they were human men until It Happened.And even though there are no single gender Wraeththu back come the women An old wordplay I used to use to piss off my sisters, women are just woe men, seemed to me les mot Rating 3 of fiveWraeththu burst onto the barren LGBT science fiction

seemed to me les mots justes for this book It took me awhile to get around to this one, as the narrator for this book is Cal, who, unfortunately, is the hinge of the series, it seems I say unfortunately as Cal is my least favorite character Like Lestat, he seems to be one of those aristocratic and hedonistic assholes that certain female geek authors find appealing for no reason I can possibly understand.So, it was slow going Luckily, someinteresting characters are introduced, as well asinteresting Wraeththru tribes, and, It took me awhile to get around to this one, as the narrator

asinteresting Wraeththru tribes, and, toward the end of the book, a companion race to the Wraeththu, a sort of barren girl har, compensated for her barrenness by evenpsychic powers than the Wraeththu.There splot than previous books, but that s not saying much As before, they enjoyment is in the author s amazing and sumptuous descriptive abilities, not the plot The plot is, in essence Cal gets led around the nose, mostly against his will, by occult forces, purifying him and allowing him to take his place as one of the leaders of the Wraeththu, the dark to Pell s light Along the way, nearly everyone falls in love with him for no discernable reason, especially given what a selfish, nasty, manipulative twat he is, and we finally find out part of what makes him so dark, the oft referred to incident with his ex lover Zach, which turns out naturally to be something one would think he d have let go of a long time ago Bleah.So, I d say it s about as good as the previous books, and it ties up all previous plot threads, which is good, but it is marred by focusing so heavily on Cal The journey finally ends and Calanthe s destiny fulfilled When I wrote that reading tnis series was like a journey, I meant that in every sense of the word It was like traveling through a mysterious land as well as traveling through the unmapped territory of the heart and the mind.
