5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterful Finish Oct. 27 2010
By Kenneth Koers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book closed out the trilogy very nicely. I never felt things were too rushed, the novel for the most part went along at a very agreeable pace. I didn't much like the very end, however, I would have liked to know more of the final scene rather than it just cutting and going to five years later. But still it was a nice resolution, and a thrilling novel. Yes, it's true that the entire thing happened in the single camp, and there wasn't a whole lot of action; these weren't the drivers of the story though. It's the characters that really drive this story, and if you've missed that you've missed a great deal. Mrs. Kiernan has done a wonderful job of constructing endearing, genuine, and believable characters. Yes, they have their quirks, but that seams to make them all the better. In all, I think it was a great story, and would recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the pay off I expected March 9 2011
By Tierney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
**SPOILERS [well, sorta...]**
Sadly I have to give this one 3.5 stars due to disappointing ending.
Let me just say I LOVE, LOVE , LOVED this series!! Read in all 3 in less than a week, staying up into the wee hours of the morning more than once.
So why the lower rating you ask? Well, this 3rd installment comes in at almost 100 pages LESS than the previous two and I REALLY felt those pages should have been present and filled with a few payoff scenes for the folks who have invested their time in this series and come to really care about these characters. I REALLY wanted to be there when Christopher got his vengeance. And I really wanted to be there when He and Wyn finally consummated their relationship. We got their first kiss in book one, we got a peek at building passion in book 2, and in this one I'd really hoped we could at least be there for the set up of when they could could come together "in Joy" as they'd been waiting for. After all of the suffering for poor Christopher, I wanted to be there for the first time he made love while actually being in love. Not the whole drawn out thing, but at least the prelude to the big moment.
And what about Razi? Did that situation actually resolve itself or is the author suggesting it didn't matter one way or the other since it was never even addressed? I just felt robbed with it ending the way it did.
I understand how hard it must be to satisfactorily wrap up an awesome, layered, detailed series like this one, and that the author probably found herself needing another book to do it right, or just having to cut herself off at the dramatic climax and skip ahead to do a concise wrap up. Due to time restraint or whatever, she chose the latter, and I for one felt like she sucked the wind out of my sails for doing so- and from the POV of a character we'd never met before to boot! No. Just. No.
Would I recommend this series anyway? Yes, but with the recommendation comes with a warning about the less than stellar ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars - An amazing conclusion for one of my favorite fantasy trilogies Dec 13 2010
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Plot Summary: Lady Protector Wynter Moorehawke, her brother Prince Razi, and her lover, Christopher Garron, have finally reached the hidden camp of Prince Alberon. Their mission is to heal the rift between Albi and King Jonathan, but when they arrive it's clear that the rebel prince has plans of his own. There are all sorts of unsavory delegates meeting with Alberon, and Wyn and Razi want to support their brother, but they cannot counsel overthrowing the king. Alberon wants to use the secret weapon designed by Wyn's late father to lend support to other rebel factions across the continent, but Wyn suspects that this weapon is too devastating to be unleashed. It will take all of Razi's skill to persuade his brother to return to the palace, and Wyn finds her relationship with Christopher coming under fire. She must choose between real love and court protocol, which would have her marry someone far more elevated than a savage Merron wanderer.

(The Moorehawke Trilogy: Book Three)

Finishing the Moorehawke Trilogy was as satisfying as laying on the couch after eating Thanksgiving dinner. I feel so satiated and happy, and that's basically the feeling that I'm aiming for every time I crack a book. In The Rebel Prince, Celine Kiernan wrote a sophisticated conclusion for this trilogy with no easy answers, and it had me riveted despite the apparent lack of action. Much like the first book, The Poison Throne, there was a lot of cloak and dagger type intrigue, and usually political maneuvering bores me silly, but not so here. Ms. Kiernan makes it work for this plot, and she makes it intelligent and entertaining as well. I'm mentally comparing it to the lengthy passages I had to endure in Jaqueline Carey's Kushiel series, and the Moorehawke Trilogy wins hands down.

The relationships between the characters was so well done I feel like I know these people inside and out, and yet, they still have the capacity to surprise me. Wyn and Christopher's romance is a beautiful, delicate thing, like a butterfly, and I know that it wouldn't take much to crush it to death, but I just want it to live and thrive. The friendship between Razi and Christopher is a true "bromance" in every way, and I just love it when friends mean this much to each other. Alberon is a new character to the story line, but his complicated relationship with his brother Razi was full of surprises as well.

These characterizations are as fine as any I've ever read, and frankly I can't wait to see what Ms. Kiernan writes next. I'm hoping she stays in historical fantasy, because I can never find enough books to satisfy my craving. I highly recommend this trilogy, and to do it right start with The Poison Throne and then The Crowded Shadows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Political and Character-driven Alt-History Adventure Concludes With a Bang Nov. 12 2010
By A. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Kingdom is in turmoil. Teen-aged Wynter Moorehawke is seeking her childhood playmate, formerly heir to the King, but now off in the wilderness in a hidden encampment, supposedly raising an army to overthrow his father. Wynter can't believe that Alberon, the Rebel Prince, has truly changed so much to be willing to tear the kingdom apart to gain the throne. With Wynter is Razi, elder half-brother to Alberon, who is equally in the dark as to what is happening. Along with Christopher, Razi's best friend and Wynter's love, the trio are finally about to meet up with Alberon and find out.

This final book in The Moorhawke Trilogy is as engrossing as the first two. The characters and their relationships are fascinating, complex and moving, and the best thing about the books. Seeing how they all interact with Alberon is something long-awaited. The world-building and political intrigue is also a strong-point. The various factions at work within and without the kingdom are also interesting. Then there is this hidden machine of death that the king has done everything he could to keep secret...

The excitement and suspense and danger remains throughout the book, building to a fine climax and a satisfying conclusion. I found the overall plot towards the end a little on the weak side, and some of the revelations about what is behind all the strange behavior and upheaval also not quite up to the build-up... but those who have made through the first books and wish to know what's going on and what will happen to these compelling characters should find the read worth-while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic end to a wonderful trilogy Oct. 11 2010
By PJ Schuyler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been very excited to read this final installment. The first two books were absolutely wonderful. I must say that I was not the slightest bit disappointed (except that I wanted more and did not want it to end). The author's writing is so eloquent and paints such a vivid picture. I had no problems falling right back into the landscape and emotions of the characters and world. I appreciate the strength of Wynter growing with each story and situation she encounters. She really developes into a strong young woman with qualities you can only hope to achieve with a heroine. The focus on Alberon, Razi, and Wynter was everything I hoped it would be and I was never at a lack for adventure and raw emotion. There is plenty to keep you on the edge of your seat. This is fastly becoming one of my favorite trilogies.
