Home Patricia C. Wrede The Harp of Imach Thyssel. Fortunately, Ace Books bought both titles, and was interested in more. The Harp of Imach Thyssel was my fifth book, and again, it was an indirect sequel, which set the pattern for the series.
Home Patricia C. The Harp of Imach Thyssel, . It was also the book that finally pushed me into quitting my day job to write fulltime. It was my first (and rather timid) experiment in writing multiple viewpoints-timid, because I didn’t quite have the nerve to do the kind of large, complex, braided storylines that really need a multiple-viewpoint structure.
The last three are set in the same time period but different nations while the first two are spaced widely apart chronologically and happen well before the events of the last three. A timeline and short world history at the end of Shadows over Lyra ties everything together and answers a lot of questions.

Patricia C. Wrede (Author). Book 3 of 5 in the Lyra Chronicles Series. But it isn't quite pulled off. This is the first book I've read by Wrede - could it be the first she wrote in her imagined world of Lyra?

234 pages ; 18 cm. The harp was not imposing-it was small and plain, its surface covered with nicks and scratches. Nonetheless, it was one of the greatest treasures in the wold of Lyra-for its music could make a dying man whole or a whole city die, according to the songs of old. The harp had been lost for centuries until Emereck the minstrel stumbled across it in an abandoned castle. Emereck wished it had never been found at all-for all magic has its price, and the great the magic, the greater the cost.
The Harp of Imach Thyssel. Emereck, a trained minstrel, and Flindaran, a nobleman masquerading as a tramp, have found a long-abandoned castle, and in it, one of Lyra’s most sought-after treasures: the Harp of Imach Thyssel. Emereck recognizes the perfect white bow from legend: It is said to possess the power of life and death over all mankind.
The Harp had more depth than Wrede's first two books of this series. Interesting interaction among the characters who were more developed than previous players. In fact, it was easy to get caught in a love hate relationship with the stubborn minstrel.
This book was very interesting and well-written, but it lacked any humor whatsoever, which is usually Wrede's . I love the Lyra novels and especially this one. The Harp of Imach Thyssel is really great, but sometimes I got confused keeping track of all the people who trying to get the harp.
This book was very interesting and well-written, but it lacked any humor whatsoever, which is usually Wrede's forte. However, the plot was very creative, suspenseful, etc. I liked this book and recomend it to all fantasy lovers, that is if you can read anything without a lot of good jokes. I also wish they had told more about the history of the harp, and not just the its current situation. I got really attached to the three main characters by the end of the book.
