A neat conclusion Sept. 17 2007
By Alessar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
My expectations for this book were rather low, based on the other reviews and my feeling that the writing quality slipped at the end of book two. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. This volume was somewhat less epic than the previous two and basically split between two plotlines, one on Irth and one on Earth. However, this neatly tied up all the hanging character threads from the previous books and brought the story to a solid and unambiguous conclusion. The author didn't really have any new conceptual themes to introduce in this book and it read a little lighter for that. I still feel the whole series just reiterates themes from his other book The Last Legends of Earth (not written under the Adam Lee psuedonym). If you have read the other books in this trilogy, the ending is worth it. However, this is clearly a "wrap-up" book and cannot stand on its own.

Disappointing 'Octoberland' lacks compelling story Sept. 7 1999
By Michael Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
'Octoberland' never lives up to the brilliant fantasy of the first two volumes of the Irth trilogy.
Author Lee uses a modified version of the awkward chapter structure he used in 'The Wolf and the Crown'. Lee almost completely abandons the world of Irth, focusing his story on The Dark Shore or Irthlings who immerse themselves in Dark Shore culture.
Where are the Spiderlands? Or the aelves? Those stories both had the potential for great fantasy. What was most lacking though was the presence of Lord Drev, a central character in book 1 of the trilogy. One can argue that his story has already been told, but his was a fascinating character that I, for one, would have liked to read more about.

October Land may not be The Dark Shore but it is so GREAT! Dec 25 1999
By Stephen Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love everything about this book. I'm not one for giving away the plot, so you have to figure out that for yourself. If you read this for the plot or to see some story line well I won't give you that. What I will tell you is that I could not put it down.. Adam Lee is a great author that needs to be recognized...
