Description

Slaves of the Mastery book.

Slaves of the Mastery book. Five years have passed. Once again Nicholson gives us a somewhat vague criticism of government (the second book must be communism, but the first? I'm not really sure, it was definitely a punishment/rewards system though) as the backdrop for the story, but I wasn't terribly interested in the precise nature of his philosophical leanings. No, once again I found myself completely in love with the characters, Kestrel in particular And yet, glorious as it was, I really, really enjoyed the second book of this series.

Wind on Fire is a fantasy trilogy written by William Nicholson. The books are set in a realm similar to ours, but separate. They tell the story of the Hath family and the Manth people, who go on a long, harsh journey from their city-prison to their homeland. The main characters, Kestrel and Bowman Hath, are twins who have certain powers that allow them to save their people, and friends, from an evil power called the Morah

Slaves of the Mastery has been added to your Cart. I think that certain parts of this book could be a little scary for youngsters, because William Nicholson addresses all kinds of social issues (and not pretty social issues, at that), and there a couple battle scenes that are pretty graphic.

Slaves of the Mastery has been added to your Cart. It is a perfect young adult book, however, and I recommend it above any other young adult fantasy book I have ever read, including Harry Potter, and the Sabriel series (which was one of those series where the first book was REALLY good and the last two kept getting worse).

One of the greatest writers of our time, William Nicholson has not only sold millions of children’s books worldwide, he also written for the screen and the stage, including the Oscar-winning film Gladiator and the BAFTA-winning play Shadowlands. One fee. Stacks of books.

Slaves of the Mastery is the second book in the Wind On Fire trilogy by William Nicholson. It picks up the story of twins Kestrel and Bowman five years on from the closing chapter of The Wind Singer. It was first published in 2001. At the beginning of the book, the city of Aramanth is greatly changed since events in The Wind Singer. The walls have been torn down, and the poorer districts abandoned. No longer is it run by the strict system of exams; in fact, everyone is pleasant and docile.

Bowman becomes a slave of the Mastery, a city where the rulers live in extraordinary luxury and beauty. Kestrel escapes, then sets off to avenge the enslavement of her family

Bowman becomes a slave of the Mastery, a city where the rulers live in extraordinary luxury and beauty. Kestrel escapes, then sets off to avenge the enslavement of her family. As the twins embark on their parallel adventures, their mother's prophetic dreams reveal their true identity and their dangerous fate. Bowman's special mind power and Kestrel's fierce spirit are soon joined once again to fight for the freedom of their people. As they plan to destroy the Mastery, however, they must also face the ancient evils, returned to haunt and tempt them.

During the invasion, Kestrel and Bowman are separated for the first time in their lives. Bowman becomes a slave of the Mastery. Kestrel escapes, then sets off to avenge the enslavement of her family. As the twins embark on their parallel adventures, their mother's prophetic dreams reveal their true identity and their dangerous fate. Bowman's mind power and Kestrel's fierce spirit are soon joined once again to fight for the freedom of their people.

I picked up the first book of this series (The Wind Singer) off the library shelf because I thought the cover looked cool. I was very surprised when I liked it as much as I did. Normally, when a book is that good, I do not go on to read the entire series, because often the first book is the best and it is down hill from there. I went ahead and broke that line of thought because I enjoyed the first one so much, and checked out Slaves of the Mastery from my library. I couldn't believe it: it was BETTER than the first book. That's never happened to me before. I have now bought the entire series and am reading through them again.

In fact, there were parts that had me laughing out loud (the boy, Bowman, is very clever sometimes. The cat had me cracking up, too), and there were parts that brought me to the brink of tears. It is a hard call between this one and The Wind Singer for which is my favorite of the trilogy.

This is the best children's book I've ever read - and I've read many hundreds of them. Long ago it was said of "The Lord Of The Rings" that "your life is the poorer if you have failed to read it." The same could be said of the "Wind On Fire" trilogy. If you're an adult (as I am) don't be turned off by the "children's" or "young adult" label. The plot and the relationships between the characters are full of deep philosophical and psychological currents - not that anyone would care much about those kinds of things if the book didn't also make you laugh and cry, and feel more alive after you finished reading it.

I absolutely adore this beautiful story. Full of adventure and a nice break from more pretentious novels.

My ten year old had just started to read Book one, and he is already half way through. He said it is really interesting. We got him book two and three also. So he can't wait to read all of them. He also said that it is weired so far, but nice and keeps him want to know more. I can see that they will all be interesting.

This book was in good condition and the story is a family favorite. A bit more intense than The Wind Singer. Recommended.

A very good read. More like for an older teen, but I loved it anyway.

Since I purchased this as a gift, I did not read it myself and therefore cannot comment on the content.
After reading Book 1 in this series, "The Wind Singer", I decided not to read this book.
