    One thought on “Ambergate

    1. Bridget on said:

      This book and Murkmere were the definition of meh to me The mythology was underdeveloped and weird The point of view jumped around too much Characters were inconsistently evil or good I never really knew who I was supposed to be rooting for and I don t mean that in a good, suspenseful sort of way Worst of all, it was strangely misogynistic all the girls in this book seemed to be helpless and stupid.And yet, I couldn t muster the energy to actively dislike it Two stars it is.

    2. Farhin on said:

      I read this several years ago and remember finding the beginning tedious and dragged However, as the book went on I remember clinging onto it for dear life I hadn t read Murkmere the prequel to this book before Ambergate but found no issues with following the story Maybe I ll re read this in the future some time.

      Okay book, it could have been good but the ending SUCKED Author was great at making problems, horrible at solving them.

      Ambergate is the sequel to Murkmere, and picks up approximately where the first book left off, but with a new narrator The servant Scruff has never had a real name, and came to Murkmere after committing a crime in the Capital When soldiers come looking for her, she must flee, beginning a journey that leads her back to the Capital, towards Leah, and into the heart of a revolution against the country s ruling government and religion After Murkmere I came to this book hoping to find Murkmere s atmo [...]

      Picking up three years after Leah s disappearance at the end of Murkmere, Ambergate follows the young maid Scuff, now nearly a young woman, as her life takes her away from the home she s come to love Haunted by dreams of a long time ago, Scuff s worst fears come to life when soldiers arrive at the manner, looking for the girl 102, who is to be arrested for a crime in her past A crime no one knows of, and most don t believe she could have committed.Aggie and her aunt deny Scuff s existence amongs [...]

      After being pleasantly surprised by Murkmere, I was unpleasantly disappointed by Ambergate Although traces of what I liked in the first book were still to be found and familiar characters showed up in meaningful ways, a lot of the storyline was just too fantastical or non sensical to be enjoyable Although I liked Scuff, she didn t quite seem to have a whole lot of depth as a main character and the immediacy and intensity of her love for Erland just didn t fit with the rest of who she seemed to b [...]

      Scuff, an orphan, is on the run At the orphanage in the Capital she was number 102 She committed a terrible crime and had fled to Murkmere where she worked as a kitchen maid When soldiers appeared seeking number 102 she took flight and stayed for a time in the Wasteland with an old man and his son named Erland Again running from soldiers she eventually makes her way to the capital She is always being deceived and used by one person or another and finds herself in the Lord Protector s palace with [...]

      I wanted to give Ambergate a higher rating but so much of what I loved from the first book was lacking here It was interesting to see of the world however I couldn t help but be disappointed about leaving the halls of Murkmere behind The first book brought those haunting grounds to life perfectly that it felt like I to was leaving home The change in protagonist took some getting use to but was welcomed I liked Aggie and missed her but wanted to know about Scuff and her adventures did prove ent [...]

      I wrote a scathing review in my eighth grade journal about this book Until I find that, here s the original review I wrote for this wretched book There was loads of descriptive writing in this book, which felt like a chore to get through at some points The characters were very under developed, as if the author just made them up totally randomly and didn t put the slightest bit of effort working on them When I chose to read this book, I didn t know it was a romance A really annoying romance The m [...]

      I actually started reading this one first by accident because I thought the other one the first book looked interesting and I wanted to save it for last Boy was I right This one is a serious let down after the first, which isn t amazing by any means, but there are fewer characters and therefore as far as this author s writing style goes has much time for development Seriously, a good handful of people die in this book and I didn t even care I was just sort of flipping though it for the sake of [...]

      As the companion book to Murkmere, a book I ve been wanting to read for awhile but always seems to be checked out when I want to read it, I was worried that I wouldn t understand a lot of what happened in this book But, I seemed to follow along pretty well and the plot was enough to keep me going, despite Scuff s advantages and ability to escape prostitution and capture multiple times I felt like the push into prostitution was a little surprising and kind of came out of nowhere, but, as people a [...]

    13. Sean on said:

      Although the U.S edition was published the same year as the previous title, Murkmere, this novel was actually written two years later, and it shows in that the writing is mature and the plotting intricate The narrative is somewhat episodic, with a Huckleberry Finn esque journey structure where many characters are met and then left behind, at least for the moment As far as the novel s weaknesses the heroine is often extremely passive, which grows exasperating and frustrating after a while and t [...]

      They call her Scuff She doesn t remember what her real name is, and that suits everyone else just fine She has a number branded on her arm from her childhood, where she committed a crime so great that if she told anyone, she would be killed for it But when she is thrust into the world of danger once again, can she keep that secret long enough to stay alive Will she ever find out who she really is

    15. Carrie on said:

      Sequel to Murkmere, but diverged from the central characters in Murkmere, instead focusing on a side character from the first book one of the servants, a mysterious young girl, nicknamed Scuff The gothic surreal tone continues here, and goes even deeper and darker I didn t care for this one as much, because the religious oppression was too heavy and all encompassing as a theme and Scuff s journey had very little humor or delight.

    17. Sienna on said:

      I really liked this book Patricia Elliott is quite the expert at writing dark, gothic, haunting books I liked it better than Murkmere, the book before this one, just because it had a little twist of romance, and the girl, Scuff, goes on this wonderfully terrible journey The end leaves you to your own imagination as to what happens next, and I liked that for some reason I recommend it, but you have to read Murkmere first to understand this one.

    18. Bibliophile on said:

      Totally meh on this one it had the germ of a good idea and interesting characters, but then it just sort of faltered, and the ending was completely rushed and also inconclusive It felt like the middle volume in a trilogy I didn t realize that Murkmere was the first one and this the second in a series, and I read this one first, but it still felt like the middle volume in a trilogy And I see there is no third book so I won t bother reading the first.

    19. Corinne on said:

      I have to say its a great book if you read Ambergate Before Murkmere I found the book at Biglots for 2 and it was amazing until I found out that I had finished the second one not the first the book was still really good and has a good open ending just incase the author wants to write a third

    20. Miss Clark on said:

      This is just one of those books that sounds so very interesting, and plot wise it was, but which was a struggle to read Having no character I cared about, I had to force myself to keep going and I just never liked the story I wanted to, but didn t.

    21. Hilary on said:

      Love the idea of a gate formed from amber102 s adventures begin deliberately, but the pace picks up and everything comes together quickly in the end sort of like a rollercoaster The avian theology isting.

    22. Christina on said:

      I ve attempted to read this book twice, but never actually finished it, other than skipping to the end to see if anything interesting happened It s just not the book for me.

    23. Briana S on said:

      I didn t really like the ending or how the author chose how to describe events but it was a nice story idea

    24. Deborah on said:

      I enjoyed it much than Murkmere, the first book, but I did read them out of order However, I do think Ambergate is much much better, story line and stand alone, than the first one.

      In this sequel to Mukmere Scuff, the kitchen maid, becomes a reluctant runaway to protect herself and those she cares for.
