As the Sachakan king tries to force Lorkin into betraying the traitors, Dannyl questions his friendship with Ashaki Achati. Can he trust the Sachakan? Not at all, if Tayend is right. But do Tayend's suspicions spring from good political instincts, or jealousy?

And Lorkin must decide where his loyalties lie, for whatever choice he makes will require a great sacrifice.

This could have been so much better. Trudi Canavan is not a brilliant writer but she's not that bad either. This book was filled with missed opportunity. Many of the themes have been lifted from previous characters, and some of the story lines are incomplete. The ending was satisfactory but could have been better. Would I recommend this to others? Yes. But if you are looking for a thrilling ride you won't get it from this book.
"Fantastic end to the Trilogy!!"
If you have not experienced trudi canavan before I would start with the Magician's Guild first as it it's the trilogy before this one. A combination of great plot twists, interesting characters and a beautifully sculpted magical world once you start listening you will not want to turn it off!
From start to finish this book is interesting and enjoyable, my only problem was in parts it felt a little rushed, the war was over in no time at all. But saying that I will listen to it again and feel it is a fitting end to the trilogy, I look forward to finding out what direction she takes her world next
Have read all of Trudi Canavan's books and as I couldn't carry this book around with me I listened to it. This is a great story and this book brings the trilogy to a neat conclusion. Can't wait for a new book and possibly a trilogy or more?
I love all Trudi Canavan titles and this is no exception. The story keeps you listening and wanting more. Would recommend to all.
"a fine finale"
so i read the first two books of the trilogy and decided to listen to the last one. the audiobook was well read and the book itself was very good. the one downside was that the book skips between characters a lot and sometimes its hard to follow when listening.
"a fitting end"
loved it wraped up nicley can not wate till Trudi sends frorth her new offering!
