Publisher's Summary

From the international best-selling author of the Broken Empire Trilogy, the thrilling conclusion to the Red Queen's War.
Mark Lawrence's "epic fantasy" (The Washington Post) continues as a reluctant prince returns from the bowels of Hell to engage in his greatest battle yet - among the living and the dead.
All the horrors of Hell stand between Snorri Ver Snagason and the rescue of his family, if indeed the dead can be rescued. For Jalan Kendeth, getting back out alive and with Loki's key is all that matters. Loki's creation can open any lock, any door, and it may also be the key to Jalan's fortune back in the living world. Jalan plans to return to the three w's that have been the core of his idle and debauched life: wine, women, and wagering. Fate, however, has other plans - larger plans.
The Wheel of Osheim is turning ever faster, and it will crack the world unless it's stopped. When the end of all things looms and there's nowhere to run, even the worst coward must find new answers. Jalan and Snorri face many dangers, from the corpse hordes of the Dead King to the many mirrors of the Lady Blue, but in the end, fast or slow, the Wheel of Osheim always pulls you back. In the end it's win or die.

Good Finish After a Disappointing Middle.

Would you listen to The Wheel of Osheim again? Why?

Maybe. If I listen to Prince of Fools again maybe I will listen to it for continuity.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the development of Jal's character arc as well as completion of the plot lines.

Which scene was your favorite?

Jal confronting the Red Queen and the scene where he pays his debt.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh. When Jal attacks the unborn and screams Undereth.

Any additional comments?

Good ending to the overall story. The second book disappointed me but this was not bad. Still some of my criticisms of the second book stand. Kara does not fit in. I feel her character is shoehorned in to include a female protagonist and placate feminist audience. Compare it to the Red Queen's character. She fits right in. Same with Lady Blue and Silent Sister. Kara serves no purpose.
