    The Mechanics and the Mages have been bitter rivals, agreeing only on the need to keep the world they rule from changing.

    Good action and less filler than Book 2

    While I enjoyed Assassins of Altis more than I did Masters of Marandur, I still found it a little slow in places. If you can push through the slow sec..Show More »

Mari leads an army now. She and Alain must fight together to bind back the Broken Kingdom and build a force strong enough to defeat the might of the Great Guilds.

    Struggled through this one

The full might of that host will fall upon the fortress city of Dorcastle. If Dorcastle falls, the revolt led by Master Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain will fail, and their world will soon descend into chaos.

    Best since the first 2 in series

    This book ties things up nicely. It may be a little predicable but you get what you want. I felt like the series was going down hill a little in the l..Show More »
