The epic conclusion to The Dagger and the Coin series, perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin.
Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent war of all against all.
In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester, and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire, and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world.

Fathers Face Remembered
Satisfying Epic Conclusion
Game of Thrones a bit. Yet with the mixture of money and war that this series has is quite unique.
He is great. I listened to this book for 10 hours straight one Saturday. His characterizations are spot on. When I read my Kindle versions it is his voices I hear.
When Cithrin and Markus have a heart to heart towards the end. Such an honest and warm chapter.
This comes from my Amazon review. "When I read decent fantasy, it is almost like playing chess. I watch and observe. Sometimes I care, but they are just pieces to be moved around with little to no attachment. When I read great fantasy, I stress over what this, and that will mean. I worry about them as if they are real people. I care for them and wish them well. The Dagger and the Coin series is great fantasy! I am happy to report that this last book is everything I had hoped for!"
From the story, to the characters, to the unique unfolding of events, and the superb reader, this series is the best I've ever read. And I'm not a big fan of fantasy either, but the fantasy is wisely used. Second to fascinating individuals. Highly recommended.
While there was no harrowing new revelations, the author still made it interesting to work through the completion of the saga. What with creating a whole slew of interesting and endearing characters during the telling of the story, each with their own mini-story arcs, it was enjoyable to find their arcs were mostly completed in a fitting way.
I'm definitely putting this saga on my must listen again list.
Both the writing and narration was superb throughout.
The conclusion to the Dagger & Coin series was disappointing, lacked the political and financial intrigue that was established in the previous books.
I'm absolutely in love with the characters and writing in this series. I knew it would have to come to a conclusion at some point. I want more, even so. Farewell Marcus...
this book finishes off a great series. this writer sure knows how to put together a story. Ray Bradbury is a genius, the reader is also fantastic does a great job finishing the story I suggest reading this
