  1. Rating 4.5 of fiveIn the end, I love the fact that this novel, likely Jay Lake s last published in his lifetime, expresses better than any I ve read in a long, long time the simple truth that, In the end, so is the beginning In the beginning, so is the end Hail, and farewell to Jay Lake My ninth and final Jay Lake Pre Mortem Read a thon review is posted at Shelf Inflicted.

  2. The conclusion to the Green series is also the best of the three works Green has her work cut out for her in this book as she seeks to defuse those who would harm both her and her babies She eventually finds her solution but, as is typical for Green, not without a lot of violence.There are a couple of threads I would have liked to have seen a thorough resolution given to Blackblood s claim on her son, about Skinless, Green s effect on the ocean through the titanics , but tying up all those pie [...]

  3. Definitely not the best book in the series I would have to go with Endurance on that front But still an extremely strong entry I am not sure if this is suppose to be the last entry into this series but if it is it went out on a odd note The book built up an attempted resue only to have it done from start to finish in little over four pages Mr Lake also wrapped up the book very quickly, killing off some characters and giving us enough closure on others to be content Though if he announced today t [...]

  4. As much as I m a little tired of the violent, impulsive female character, I do appreciate that Kalimpura is an unflinching look at the consequences of that kind of choice It s a grim and bloody book, and it doesn t end well so much as inevitably.The nostalgic narrator trick is just as annoying here as it was in Endurance, although there isn t really a twist to spoil and it does add some perspective to the character s choices, because she as narrator can talk about her motivations and the results [...]

  5. Wow I am so sad to see Green go, I hope that Jay will maybe continue the series and fill in all the time we missed in the fifteen years that happen between the end of the book and the epilogue where Green sits down to write her story It makes me happy to see all the positive reviews on this book as her first book just gets bashed on constantly, and that was by far my favorite because that is when we get to see Green become the powerful warrior and woman that she is I love how she evolves through [...]

  6. I found _Kalimpura_ to be an enjoyable if imperfect ending to one of the most interesting and innovative fantasy series in recent years if not ever Though I had some quibbles with the novel and the series there was a lot to like about this ending to the Green trilogy.The good first and there is a lot of good The title refers to of course, as readers of the series know, the city in which the majority of this book is set, a city that was much featured earlier in the series I love this city It seem [...]

  7. Would it suffice to say that I wanted and hoped for so much from this series Kalimpura is the grand finale to the three book series on Green, the miscreant ninja girl punching her way through the conventional and divine worlds alike in the search, ultimately, to find a place for herself As Endurance left off on some cliffhangers, Kalimpura picks up just after and quickly pulls us away again from the city Green spent all of last book getting reacquainted with That happens to probably be for the [...]

  8. Great start,middle of the series again From the other reviews, maybe the best one to start with A very engaging character is Green, who fights her way out of one town, across the ocean, into the next Freely using the Gods and assorted unique individuals, Green topples her opponents, destroys the apple cart , then goes on to build perhaps the only life she could Good read, overall

  9. Kalimpura is the third book in the Green series It is touted as the conclusion of the series as well and considering the ending, I can see avenues for new books in this universe if the author so chose to write them Green has come back to Kalimpura where she has many against her, both human and god Yet this is the home of her Lily Goddess and where she was trained to be a Lily Blade She s trying to retrieve two girls from the Bittern Court one a Blade sister and the other the daughter of her some [...]

  10. So, what can I say about the end of Green s story It was Green esque Green never once changed Never once learned from her Mistakes Same Green, same tricks Tricks that got beloved characters killed or severely injured I m thankful for the some what epilog at the end where we are introduced to an older and wiser Green A Green who then has to deal with a teenage girl, that is like her mother when her mother was young Fitting Overall, I did enjoy the story, even if it seemed to upset me a lot with G [...]

  11. Kalimpura by Jay LakeThis is the third of the series of one of those butt kicking female protagonist stories I enjoy so much Green, the main character, is now a mother and although she has mellowed this is akin to suggesting a tsunami is just a wave Green leaves Copper Downs and returns to the Temple of the Silver Lilly and her meanest foes I would suggest reading Green and Endurance , the precursors to this book All three books deal with empowering women and defying the status quo Green s goal [...]

  12. My life was in turmoil I m serious I was breaking up with a girl, trying to manage an unruly child, and running a business as well Every day was one series of crisis after another You d never believe how many people s problems became my problems in the first week of July What I m saying is, it s not you, it s me A book should be reviewed on its own merits not on the whirlwind of drama that surrounds the reader But this isn t a perfect world and that isn t practical I read books within the confin [...]

  13. I won an ARC of this book It took me awhile to read it after winning because I wanted to read the first two in the series first I was thankful that I did I had seen the first book in the library but had passed it over for other authors that I had already known I am grateful that I won this book In doing so, I have been introduced to another great author I really enjoyed the first two in this series Kalimpura is the end of Green s story A story of a girl, sold by her father, trained to be a warri [...]

  14. This review is for the Audible unabridged, of course version I just finished listening to Kalimpura, and all I want to do is listen to it again It s the kind of fantasy book that demonstrates through its own excellence all the things that are sometimes missing from other books in the genre The characters are multi faceted flawed, believable, and sympathetic The settings are likewise layered, with vivid descriptions The plot offers surprising turns, but still feels solidly grounded in the Green u [...]

  15. Kalimpura was a good end to the series I found each book to be very well written, with the first one being my favorite I felt that the characters of the If there is anything negative to be said about Kalimpura, it s only that very early in the reading I could see where the book would eventually lead The various paths leading to the end, and Lake s telling of the story, were what made the book so good I guess the only open questions remaining for me are concerning the fates of the children, and F [...]

  16. Green returns to Kalimpura with her newly born twins, and sets off a political brouhaha that ends in great washes of blood As before the story is well founded, and except for occasional tics Lake has a bad habit of foreshadowing, and often too He also sometimes brings the plot crashing to a halt while for stylistic but boring ruminations or explication Skip those, though, and things move right along makes both logical and psychological sense He brings the story to an end, too, with a quick epilo [...]

  17. Book 3 of the Green saga This was written from the perspective of the birth of a demigod It had a very mythic quality to it And it had an odd and confused style, which was fair because our narrator was confused and off balance pretty much throughout the whole book Lots of violence and hiding and running and breast feeding of twins I would say it was a kick ass cover very unlike the vampire killing bimbos with one baby in a sling and the other in a backpack it definitely carried the serious drive [...]

  18. This series is a guilty pleasure of mine.The story was great and concluded things nicely.There was a bit of stumbling in the writing of the first two books, but it seems the author has finally worked out most of the kinks in this third one.My only gripe was with the author s overuse of foreshadowing It s one thing to gently hint at something, but it s another thing entirely to be blatant about it

  19. Jay Lake 1964 2014 has left us with a wonderful legacy, including the trilogy for which this volume is the conclusion The evolution of the girl Green through three novels is fascinating and satisfying even if it would have been wonderful to continue on the journey with her Thank you, Mr Lake.

  20. This third and final of the Green Universe trilogy did the story justice It s brilliant, witty, gripping, demanding, intesne, intimate, devastating, and the ending The ending is worth every single hardship the characters endured through the three books I highly recommend this to fantasy lovers.

  21. This one seemed to take forever to get where it was going I am curious if Lake s cancer diagnosis caused him to wrap this one up as he did Other than the very end it did not feel like the last novel in a series, of a middle child That being said I did like the end and the promises it made of adventures to come Too bad we are unlikely to see any of those.

  22. Of course, when I love something, it is hard for me to find too much fault with the sequels but by the time most writers get to the third book For RR Martin it happened in book 5 things begin to get stale and this happens here Still, definitely worth reading.

  23. This book was hard to put down Between the lore of the land and the fantastic character development, this book was amazing This was my favorite of the series, I hope that there will be of these books to come.

  24. I think this book I liked the least of these three novels The plot really didn t wrap up until the last fifty pages of the book and I just didn t feel like it had the same flavor as the other two I also feel like this book was really Green s world falling out around her.

  25. I liked the story overall but, there was just too much man hating going on However that is to be expected when there were very few men worth liking in any of the 3 books.

  26. Third, and possibly concluding volume in the Green Universe series, an engaging, bloodthirsty but ultimately uplifting feminist fantasy set in a world parallel or possibly successor to our own.

  27. Good ending for the story, well written The third book of the series did not have the draggy places that the second did.
