Didnt feel like the end of the trilogy

I have been waiting for this book since the second I finished The Dark River. I even called to complain to Audible when it wasn't available the day that the book was published.

All that being said, I wasn't too impressed by The Golden City, Some of the plot points were resolved to easily and it felt jumpy. I even had to verify TWICE that I was listening to the unabridged version.

I wasn't really thrilled with how the book ended. For the FINAL book, I expected things to resolve, but there are a things left hanging out there. I know they can't all be fairy tale endings, but I was left unsatisfied at the end.

I would still recommend the entire series to friends and family.

I like everyone else waited for this book, but unfortunately this book ends as though there is a fourth book. It's as though the author did not know how to finish the trilogy...and so he didn't!
By all means read this book, because you'll be anxious to know how it all ends..the trouble is, it doesn't! Ah Mr. Twelve Hawks, I cannot believe how unbelievably frustrated you made me feel. The message you were trying to convey was lost...for me because you decided to make the ending so incongruent!

The recording itself was good, but the ending was a major letdown for me. Honestly, I'd have been better off just reading the first book, "The Traveller" and leaving after that, whichis a real shame.

Long- winded at times

Having enjoyed the first two books, I wanted to complete the trilogy. However, I found this book read more like a repetitious lecture(by certain characters) than a story at times. It would have been better if the story had been allowed to flow and speak for itself. On saying that, If you have read the previous two books then it is worth reading this final part...but maybe an abridged version? (shortening some of the boring monologues)
