    "Deeply enjoyable installment in a great series"

    The final installment in the Nighrunner series, Shards of Time explores yet another new part of the world-setting and takes us on a fascinating and convoluted journey. The few remaining loose ends from the previous six books are tied up nicely, but this book chiefly stands alone, almost like an exploration of what might be done with the characters now that much of the main story has been told.

    That said, this largely stand-alone story is delectable and very engaging. All of our favorite characters are in fine form... and grave danger.

    Adam Danoff is as good as ever, still the perfect voice for our young, frank heroes.

    "The Story Comes Full Circle!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really loved how Flewelling brought the series full circle. The characters have all had realistic growth over the 7 books and now we get to see them settle into their lives. Good plot line and good resolution!

    "Just Blah"

    Loved the original books in the series. Each new edition (especially with current narrator) seems less and less substantive in scope. This one is particularly on the less epic end of the scale. Basically a fantasy/ghost based mystery. The narrator continues to offer so little that even what story there is disappoints even more. The 3 main characters have very little vocal differentiation so you're sometime not quiet sure which of the 3 are speaking.
