Publisher's Summary

The thunderous conclusion to the award-winning fantasy epic...
Following Stronghold's destruction, Rukh and Jessira lead the ragged remnants of the OutCastes on the long march to Ashoka. There they seek sanctuary for her people, but in order to do so they must overcome unyielding law that demands exile for all ghrinas. Meanwhile, Hal'El Wrestiva - exposed and reviled as the Withering Knife murderer - escapes from Ashoka and hatches one final scheme to resuscitate his soiled reputation. The Virtuous, a newly formed organization full of certitude and strife, plots the destruction of House Shektan. And Li-Choke and the Baels launch a final desperate plan to save their kind as well as all of Humanity. But it is Rukh who must confront the harshest of choices. It is one that will cost him everything he loves but might also see to the salvation of his home. He cannot falter, for Suwraith has once again turned her ruinous intentions toward Ashoka.

Great book, wonderful narration

A wonderful finish to a great series. Unlike other books or even movies where you feel the passage of time, this book enraptures you so you feel as if only two or even three hours have past when the book comes to a beautiful end.

One aspect I greatly enjoyed was the multiple viewpoints of the same event. It truly is a refreshing change from the multiple story lines that converge into one eventually. No longer are you ripped from your emersion to simply plot build. instead you can experience the same event from the different eyes which only serves to expand on and deepen your excitement and emersion.

The character development was satisfying but not overly drawn out to the point a boredom. while the action scenes we're exciting without being too over the top.

One aspect that felt was lacking was the delving into the new abilities acquired by characters in the story. Although the author does an adequate job to explain them he does little to expand on them.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable book with wonder narration. I strongly recommend this book to any fantasy enthusiast.

Don't bother

It started well but my god for every 1 chapter of battle and action there is 4 chapters of pointless chit chat. Why the entire first 2 books were dedicated to their bigotries I'll never know, fair enough use the first book to establish this theme but by the second get on with the action. There were probably 5 real action scenes across the whole
Trilogy. Wouldn't recommend starting this series.
