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.

powerful

This is a powerful conclusion to a beautiful story. I appreciate Lawhead's portrayal of grace in the face of great difficulty. I also appreciated the theme of God's providence. God is good and does work all things out for the good!

Still worth the read

I would have preferred a more gripping ending to this excellent series, it seemed to plod along a bit too slowly for my liking, and at no point did the plot give me that delicious sense of tension that things might not work out okay, but I still enjoyed enough to keep going. I don't think it was as strongly written as the rest of the series though, I really felt there needed to be more conflict or suspense, perhaps even a bit more humour. Still, all in all a good read, and the series as a whole is very well done.
