This third book in the trilogy is a bit slow and depressing for the first two thirds of it, however, it must be added that it is written with reason and is even an integral part of the setting. Once one gets beyond that the series comes to its fruition and the end, though bittersweet, is one of the most satisfying ends to any series I have ever read. If you have gotten this far, come just a bit further. The journey is worth it.

I found this trilogy to be fascinating. If you've read Joseph Campbell's description of the hero in mythology then you will better understand this story. Lewis is similar to Frodo, Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter; all share the same fate. In addition, check out the Celtic myth of Lugh.
To understand Lawhead's mythology/theology I recommend reading his biography of St. Patrick, "Patrick" and note how it compares to this story.
It was the second time I listened to this trilogy that I truly enjoyed it. Knowing what's going to happen makes it easier to understand Lawhead's symbolism. This is a bard's tale.
