One thought on “Damiano's Lute

  1. Anna

    This book is the second in a trilogy by R.A MacAvoy The first book, Damiano, sets out the story of a young lute player wizard in Renaissance Italy whose best friend is the archangel Raphael Trust me They are amazing books, and ones that I re read at least once a year.Without spoiling too much of Damiano s Lute, I just have to say that the first time I read it, I cried Not tears trickling down the cheeks, but full on, gut wrenching, nose reddening sobs.Which, for me, is incredibly rare And every [...]

  2. Richard

    I was pleased to find that the first book in this trilogy mostly lived up to my fond memories of it, but the second book didn t hold up quite as well The main problem I had with it is that the plot is very slight most of the novel coasts along relying on the reader s affection for the existing characters while subtly shifting focus from Damiano to Gaspare.Still, the characters do charm, and the downbeat ending packs one hell of a punch I had remembered the gist of it, so I was aware of the wheel [...]

    Other reviewers here compare this fantasy novel unfavorably with the novel to which it is the sequel I hadn t read the first novel I read this one because a dead friend had left it to me, and because I really enjoyed R A MacAvoy s Lens of the World series.I loved all the music in Damiano s Lute, and the magic wasn t half bad either The story doesn t quite earn its ending, but it did make me order up Damiano after holding out for only two days That ought to be a good enough recommendation right t [...]

    I wish I could have appreciated Damiano s Lute I wish I could have loved it at least a little bit as much as others have I picked up Damiano because a good friend remembered it fondly, and another friend wrote movingly of Damiano s redemption arc But my head must not have been in the right place I could hardly take Damiano seriously he reeked to me of whiney emo brat wizard wannabe I nearly rolled my eyes up permanently in to my head But it must be just me, I kept thinking, and soldiered on to [...]

  5. Jean

    While the book is beautifully written, the Kindle version is less than perfectly transcribed, causing me to struggle with the text Still I enjoyed it quite a lot, although there were spots when I needed a tissue I am glad I had Raphael, the third book in the trilogy, ready to go What I liked was the exploration of love and personal responsibility There are hard choices to be made and they have significant consequences I am impatient to find out how this trilogy concludes If you enjoy philosophic [...]

    This review may contain spoilers.This was another book I found difficult to read Unlike the first book, all of the characters seemed really unlikable in this Damiano didn t seem to care about anyone or anything apart from Saara who he fell in love with at first sight Eyeroll.To be honest, I would have liked to see Damiano learn to cope without the use of his magic It all seemed to progress far too quickly after he got his powers back And to be honest, he didn t seem the self sacrificial sort.So, [...]

    This didn t hold my attention quite as well as the first book.I won t say the ending came out of nowhere because it was hinted at a couple of times, but I do agree with some of the other reviewers that say that it didn t feel like it was entirely earned.But I am really interested to see where she goes with the third book.

    A bit too dark for me.Damiano has forsaken his magic and focused on perfecting his lute playing He is still hanging out with the angry street urchin, mooning over the Norwegian witch, and taking lute lessons from the angel Raphael.Overshadowing the whole book is the plague.

  9. Denise

    Damiano travels with his wild horse, a young thief, and his lute, earning an audience to play before the Pope himself He revisits his relationship with the Fenn Witch Saara, and together they try to stop the plague that has fallen upon Avignon.

  10. Tim Franklin

    Unsure about this series, on a re read a good few years after the first It s distinctive, and very evocative of the setting, but at the same time I can t help but find it rather twee Torn as to whether it s a keeper or not.

  11. Lance

    An Algerian born French Guitarist who, in his early years, played a lot of Celtic music, is the inspiration for Damiano The Author s infatuation with Pierre Bensusan becomes apparent in this one.

  12. Rannie

    A light but entertaining series in which our roving musician encountersthe Plague, the Devil and the Pope while continuing to develop his music and his magic, with a little love along the way.
