This book is why didn’t sleep the last two nights. This book is why my eyes are red this morning, and my face is stained with tears. This book is the reason why I have been having insane moodswings.

This book was amazing. I was excited maelsttom it to arrive, because all the Tapestry book are incredible, but once I started reading, I began to have maelstrkm. This book was utterly genius. I can hardly put to words how much I feel for this book, my emotions about it are still too unstable. So thank you, Henry H Neff, for writing brilliant literature, drawing fantastic illustrations, and thank you for existing. View all 3 comments. Nov 11, Shakespeelar rated it it was amazing Shelves: Yesterday afternoon, I purchased my very own copy of “The Maelstrom”, the fourth book in Mr.


Henry Neff’s beautiful Tapestry series. And I finished it early this afternoon. Of course, what can you expect form an avid fan of Henry Neff’s remarkable books? I know, it’s pretty vague but I don’t know how else to put it.

Neff puts a spin on many chapters that leaves me gasping maelstrlm hanging on the edge of my seat. The characters are beautifully written and so realistically Yesterday afternoon, I purchased my very own copy of “The Maelstrom”, the fourth book in Mr. The characters are beautifully written and so realistically thought of.


You could see that every page of the book was meticulously written down, which made the characters and setting henrh more realistic. You will see that Max McDaniels has grown into a strong leader and a budding young man.

He will meet old allies, good friends, new enemies nefc old enemies as well. And there might even be new romance as well And as usual, the little sorcerer, David Menlo still remains mysterious, but don’t worry, we’ll be spending a lot of time getting to know him better in this book and yes, his love of coffee has gotten stronger. I found it very sweet that Mr. Neff really showed how much Max and David’s friendship has grown.

If you’ve read the third book in the series, “The Fiend and the Forge”, then you might remember the meek little orphan girl who touched our hearts: And of course she’ll touch our hearts even more just like she touched Max and David’s in “The Maelstrom”, showing us her true powers and yet never forgetting the happiness and true joys in life. So if you remember Mina, then you’ll probably remember the mysterious and powerful man who appeared in the end of the third book and left it at heny cliffhanger: Yup, he’s really back from the dead but don’t worry, he’s not a zombie and he’s just as mysterious as his grandson, David.

As I read the book, I found myself gasping at the most suspenseful parts, laughing at maelstrim awkward and silly moments giggling in the romantic onesshaking my head in pity, and tearing up at the parts that truly had an impact on my heart. Henry Neff truly has a gift with words, the way he crafts them into powerful beings, likable characters and beautiful settings, he pulls you into the story, feeding your imagination with pictures and words.

All in all, “The Maelstrom” is an engaging and suspenseful book, simply overflowing with emotion, humor, love and heart. With the realistic, lovable characters and his smart, interesting story-telling skills, fans of the books will not be disappointed, because I surely wasn’t. Oct 24, Kaikoura rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: There is no word that can completely describe the utter stunning, breathtaking, awesome, extraordinary, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping book that Henry H.

The plot, enff characters, the themes are so beautiful and complex that this story is a work of art. The thing that makes this book so wonderful is how real it is, yes there are fantasy creatures, gods of old, magic ect.


He knows he can’t win. There is no fan club rooting maelztrom the survival of any character, Mr. Neff moves that story as if it was real. He won’t save a character or develop a character so that his readers are happy.

This book is real, alive and raw. A trait that can be read on every page. In this book, Max remains the beautiful and fierce fighter nedf all love but he matures in such thee, that one can not but feel pride bubble in their chest. He becomes an amazing strategist, a clandestine, black-ops and battlefield war machine. He begins to realize and interpret the world around him in a maelxtrom deeper way. The treat of the assassins, the Atrops don’t seem to bother his hope and belief in life.

I can honestly say that every part of this book was my favorite. The part I relish in however, is how Mr. Neff got rid of Julie. I really didn’t like her and max together, she was a needy, stupid girl who did nothing. I don’t want to give away too much but Max’s new love interest is the most amazing thing that ever happened to him, happiness wise.

Although, their love is a little rushed. Nov 26, Danielle Hwnry rated it it was amazing. It was more than I even hoped for! In this fourth installment, the series moves into epic territory.

Some of my favorite elements: After being on separate adventures in The Fiend and the Forge, the duo are reunited. And, truly, beff feels so good! I really enjoyed seeing them rekindle their friendship and spur each other on in matters from mystic and demonic to romantic and even silly. Yes, The Maelstrom covers some serious territory as Rowan races ths clock in preparation for war with Prusias. But once again, Neff does an excellent job of peppering humor throughout–there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments for comic relief many thanks to Toby the Smee, an absolutely genius character.

We also get reacquainted with the old gang: Cynthia, Lucia, Sarah, Yaya, Tweedy Along mealstrom old favorites, we learn more about newer characters like Elias Bram and little Mina, the mysterious girl Max saved from the farmhouse in Blys Another welcome addition is Umbra, a refugee who seems to be as fierce as Max himself. And Nox, about whom I will say no more, but whose appearance may bring a tear your your eye and a smile to your heart.

Incredible new creatures, creepy new demons, revealing backstories and sparks of young henrt. There is so much to enjoy throughout this book, and it all builds to a truly EPIC battle that will have you on the edge of your seat! With The Maelstrom, Neff is certainly hitting nefff stride as a writer and storyteller.
