The final installment in the epic Riddle in Stone saga. Having committed treason by claiming the Highlands for his own kingdom, Edmund - the one-eyed, stuttering former librarian - decides to stop running and make his final stand. Along with his best friend, Pond Scum, and his manic dog, Becky, he must fight off goblins, magic users, and King Lionel's entire army in order to protect what he loves. However, his deadliest adversary is the approaching winter, and neither Edmund nor his men have the supplies they need to survive.

Can't wait for the next series!!
I only listened to the audio. The narrator did a good job. Splendid inflection in his voice. Good characterizations.
From the series, Kravel was my favorite but he was not in this book that much. I'm told that he's going to have his own series coming out soon. Can't wait! Favorite character from this book--dear, lovable Edmund, of course. Strong-willed Abby. Wonderfully flawed Pond. But King Lionel really stole the show for me. Very funny. An ass with a soft side.
Oh!! Many but can't give away the plot. The end scene had a little bit of everything--bittersweet, excitement for the future, mystery. It doesn't wrap things up into a neat bow. There are many unanswered questions that give you plenty to think about until the next books.
Almost forgot to mention Vin. Wonderful scenes with him. And when Ed confronts the town. I nearly cried.
I want more!!! Can't wait until Kravel's story comes out and hopefully Abby!
Touching End and New Beginnings
Absolutely. Fleet Cooper did a terrific job. The characters had a variety of different "sounds" so they didn't all sound the same or variations of the same actor.
The humor ("The only thing revolting is your court jester"--loved that line.) Also how things unfolded in a different way than expected.
The sword fight at the Stone of Death where "Lord Somebody beat the other person." LOL. Also, the great battle scene with the armies. It's one of the only battle scenes where I felt like I was there. It wasn't overwritten or bogged down by too many details.
The very last scene seemed so real for me. I could really feel for Edmond on so many levels. The heartbreak and joy... I really hope there's more after this.
I wish there were more goblins. I missed Kravel and Gurding's witty banter.
