Publisher's Summary

Alex Locke is desperately trying to hold on to the disparate threads of the complex web of time he has created. He travels to the First World War, living through the horrors of trench warfare in order to befriend a young soldier crucial to his story, then to the 1930s to uncover the secrets of a mysterious stage magician.
He moves back and forth in time, always with the strange and terrifying Dark Man on his heels, gradually getting closer to uncovering the true nature of his destiny with the obsidian heart.

Tying up loose ends...

In a lot of ways this was probably the best book of the series. It felt like a very different story to The Wolves of London, as the supernatural element fell into the background and time travel became the main focus, but made for a satisfying end to the trilogy.

I think others who struggled with the 2nd book would do well to persevere with book 3. There were still some slow sections and far less action than the previous books, but the direction of the story surprised me in a good way.

I praised book 2 for handling the idea of time travel in a very classy way and not relying on lazy "time travel can fix everything" tropes. This mostly continues here (ignoring the first "plot line fixing" chapter) although at a faster pace, not staying in one place for too long.

By the time I reached the halfway point the main story line felt finished and I wondered how the book would use it's second half to wrap up the series. By the end the story is definitively finished, doing very well to answer all of the important questions and adding several revelations that I personally didn't see coming. You certainly won't view book 1 in the same away again!

Overall a satisfying conclusion to a very intriguing series - if you've started the journey I recommend you see it through.

I wish I'd liked it more

book three, and in all honesty it was so rambling and kind of boring I doubt I would have finished it if I hadn't felt an obligation to the trilogy! none of the action or suspense of the first too, just long confusing and with an irritating amount of narration. sorry!
