Summary

This is the end. How could it not be? Fate waits for none.

It has unravelled across the ages, its web woven throughout millennia of chaos and blood. Now, all that was seen shall come to pass, and there is nothing the heroes of Verda can do to stop it. After years of planning and preparation, Alijah Galfrey is finally ready to change the world. He will break the scales of power across the realm, securing his victory and eternal reign. There is no line he will not cross; no sacrifice he will not make to bring peace to the land.

Spread thin, The Rebellion must work fast to muster their forces and meet the enemy head on. Vighon Draqaro and his allies give their lives to stand against the growing darkness, but only the children of fire and flame can determine the fate for all.

A Clash of Fates is the final chapter in the unmissable epic-fantasy series The Echoes Saga.

Satisfying ending

Many epics I have read spent 90 % building the penultimate battle to then drop to an abrupt end leaving me wonder what will happen next to the characters and if there ever will be a sequel. What I like most about A Clash of Fates is Philip honoured each character with just enough page time to set the stage how their lives go on from here without overstretching the entire story. This was the most satisfying end I read in a long while. It is a fabulous epic!

At last the End

Loved the first few books, totally brilliant such a refreshing story and read something though went wrong it’s taken me absolutely ages to finish this one, perhaps it was when he killed his favourite most popular character and then brought him back from the dead ….overall however it was great

Another that kept me listening into the wee hrs

This final book kept me enthralled the same as the others did. There are possible ways to bring in another story with Inara and Vigon's children, the out break of the Orcs again. please dont let this be the last. I love listening to steven Brand bring these books to.life.

Let Down

After a fun ride this finale fell flat. At the end, you’re left asking yourself, what was the point? After 10,000 years of manipulating fate, the Crow’s grand vision accomplished nothing and wasn’t even mentioned at the end. Inara and others acted irrationally and out of character. I’d recommend you skip this one and imagine your own ending to an otherwise excellent series

Bah

I've only begun listening to this book. After loving all previous books of the series, this book has been too sappy for my tastes. So much so that I'm anxious to move on to another series. Update: I couldn't finish it. A five-minute fight between Asher and an assassin being the only excitement in this sappy, boring book.

My favorite

I LOVE this story. I could listen to it and all the books over and over again, I have listened to the first one 4 tea I think. Not only do you instantly and intently fall in over with the characters the story its self Is fantastic. but all that aside I love it 10X more because of the narrators voice!!!!! it's a voice I think Asher would be proud of.

Emotional end to the saga

This was a great series and this final book wrapped it up so nicely. It's sad to see it all come to an end.

Best fantasy series ever.

It always keeps you on the edge of your seat the characters are awesome the drama is great I have gotten so angry and cried and laughed with this book series is that I am sorry that it is over. I would really like to hear more adventures with Asher and Evendrial. And what kind of dragon order Gideon is going to to invest in. This is definitely one of my favorite series if not the very favorite.

Best Series Ever

I honestly wish there were more books, I don’t even care to review for the other readers this review is for Philip. I have never enjoyed a series of books as much as I did this series. It was masterful, captivating, extremely well written, & drew me in until the end. Anyone who understands writing would recognize the seasoned writer for what he is. Also the choice of narrator really makes these books come alive, amazing job. Can’t say enough good things about this series. I am actually sad to write this because it is the end of a great tale. Thank you Philip, I will listen to this series again and again. I look forward to your future works.
