The conclusion of one of fantasy's strongest series. April 1 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Here, all the questions are answered -- the real reasons for Tithian's destructive actions, the existence of the shadow people, the truth of the dwarven prophecies, even how Athas became the way it is. The characters that have been given a chance to develop over the course of the series are as strong as ever, and the newer characters (particularly Neeva's son Rkard) are nearly as memorable

A decent end, but could have been better Dec 28 2012
By Fernando - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a decent end to the series, but suffers from many of the problems of the previous books. First, there is the constant action and fast pace. We never get a nice and quiet explanation and the characters never get some quiet time to talk about the situation and discuss their motives and what to do and so on. Every other page there must be a fight, so no time to talk! Second, their plans are constantly frustrated, nothing that the heroes plan seems to work up until the very end. This is ok up to a point, but gets a bit annoying by the end. The whole group is also way too naive to my taste, sometimes impossibly naive, specially with respect to Rkard being destined to kill the dragon.

On the plus side, the wealth of motivations and the lack of a clear good vs. evil situation makes the book quite interesting.

** Spoiler warning! **

My favorite point of the book: Though Neeva's son Rkard plays an important role at the end, the whole business of him being destined to kill the dragon and whatnot is revealed to the characters to have been a ruse employed by Thithian. This was very nice, it completely destroyed the boring "boy destined to save the world" plot, which would have ruined the book anyway.

In any case, buy the old edition, the new ones are full of typos.

Just Shoot Me Dec 4 2012
By InfinitusEquitas - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Another disappointing book in a very disappointing series. Read the review I posted on the other books in this series to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

In case you read the other books, and wonder if it gets better. It doesn't.
