Publisher's Summary

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

    "Great Example of an Epic Trilogy!"

    First let me say that I wish this wasn't a trilogy. These series could have gone on further. I'm going to miss Kylar and Durzo. I love finding strong fantasy writing that isn't geared toward teenagers. No offense to my YA readers :-) Great story and character building. 5 stars.

    In this last installment we follow Kylar as he does everything he can to make Logan king. He even gives his life, but that's not so bad when you are immortal. Or is it? We've always known there was a price for each of Kylar's resurrections, but is it a price he can live with. The answer turns out to be No.

    Logan is a sure thing for King of Cernaria. At least most people think so. However, Logan seems to do everything he can not to take the crown. His character really irritates me in this book. He puts honor above all things. He is faced with killing Kylar or saving face. His decision changes how I look at him now. In all, this is an excellent series.


    SLIGHT SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT...

    Slight spoiler that you will get from reading the summary anyway: Durzo returns. I love this. But... it could have been done better. It seems like Kylar just ups and knows he is alive one day. There were never any hints or clues. it makes it seem like a spur of the moment decision by the author to bring him back. If Kylar's thought there was a chance Durzo would come back, he would have never buried him. And who was the body that was buried and dug up for proof?
    Now I know this will make me out to be heartless, but I hate Eline's character. I never liked her. When she was Doll Girl I could deal with her, but when she turned into the Nun-who-does-no-wrong I really start to dislike her. even with all the live and kindness the author tries to pour into her, she pissed me off in every way. She tries to turn our hero into something he is not. A truly good person would love the man he is and try to support him. Which gets to our other female... Vie. Now I like Vie I was hoping Kylar would fall for her.
    With this being the last book, I feel a little cheated. The story had at least two more books. Not sure if the author was tired and wanted to try something new... or if he was forced to cut it short. I feel like it was wrapped up to perfectly at the end. What I would have liked is to see the bad girl get away. imagine Kylar struggling to decide to hunt her down or not as she causes chaos. Vie would be faced wit finding a way to kill her only friend. Dorean would struggle between the madness and trying to find a way to separate the goddess and Eline. Now that could have been awesome 4th book.

    "Awesome!"

    This was a great ending to the series. Did not expect the story to go so in depth within all of the characters/history. It was great and was the best story out if three great books. Would highly recommend the trilogy to everyone, anyone, that likes things that are awesome.

    "Wow!"

    love the entire story and the narrator does it some good justice (Kylar would agree). A very good work.
