Publisher's Summary

Kit stared at his fellow questors. “Is this it… the End of Everything?” It started with small, seemingly insignificant wrinkles in time: A busy bridge suddenly disappears, spilling cars into the sea. A beast from another realm roams modern streets. Napoleon’s army appears in 1930s Damascus ready for battle. But that’s only the beginning as entire realities collide and collapse. The questors are spread throughout the universe. Mina is stuck on a plain of solid ice, her only companion an angry cave lion. Tony and Gianni are monitoring the cataclysmic reversal of the cosmic expansion - but coming up short on answers. And Burleigh is languishing in a dreary underground dungeon - his only hope of survival the very man he tried to murder. Kit and Cass are back in the Stone Age trying to reach the Spirit Well. But an enormous yew tree has grown over the portal, effectively cutting off any chance of return. Unless someone can find a solution - and fast - all Creation will be destroyed in the universal apocalypse known as The End of Everything. In this final volume of the fantastic Bright Empires series, Stephen R. Lawhead brings this multi-stranded tale to a stunning and immensely satisfying conclusion.

nice story, too many words

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story moved very slowly. There was too much repetition and the dialogue was sometimes irritatingly redundant. I liked the overall story line and ideas--it just needed more editing. It seemed to be more an issue in the later books in the series. I didn't notice it so much in the first couple.

Could you see The Fatal Tree being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

It could be quite amazing visually. The story line is very sound, and a critical rewrite might be just what it needs.
