Summary

In this extraordinary third and final work in the Second DemonWars Saga, R. A. Salvatore weaves a diverse tapestry of characters and events from all the novels of the DemonWars Saga into an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Casting his inimitable spell of the human and supernatural, love and war, faith and faithlessness, Salvatore's crowning work is centered on a dark young king driven by a quest to remake humankind.

In Honce-the-Bear, King Aydrian Boudabras wakes in a cold sweat, his conscience haunted by those he has killed to garner power, including the rightful king before him, Danube, his mother's husband. Now Aydrian is preparing his armies for war, forging loyalties, playing one adversary against the other, and giving those around him barely a glimpse of his remarkable powers. Even Aydrian does not fully understand what drives his ambition, the guiding voices he first heard from the shadow of Oracle, or the truth of his birth in the elven land - before it was stained and mortally threatened by the demon dactyl.

Yet in the neighboring Behren, the evil Yatol Bardoh is unleashing a war engine of his own, using armies of mercenaries and horrific tactics to bring down the walls of Jacintha and to drive a ferocious dragon from the city of Dharyan.

Between these two men, an explosive chain of events has been set into motion. Refugees flood the roads and valleys, alliances are formed and broken, navies clash at sea, and assassins seek their moment to strike. With Aydrian's power and popularity turning into an avalanche and the courageous Brynn Dharielle valiantly standing in the way of the Yatol Bardoh, the great players in the DemonWars Saga will unite and clash on a single magnificent stage. But as the lands run with blood, there are no adversaries like a mother and her long-lost son. For Jilseponie, once queen of Honce-the-Bear, has discovered the truth of her son Aydrian's birth. And now she becomes the only mortal on earth with magic enough to stop her own son - by any means necessary - from his cataclysmic quest....

Great ending to the saga

The previous book had been my favorite of the saga until I heard this one. I thought this was a great ending and of course the story could only come alive so vividly with the amazing performance of Tim Gerard Reynolds. I laughed, I cheered, my heart ached, and I cried.

Amazing

An amazing series by RA Salvatore and masterfully narrated by Reynolds. Having found this series after it had been completed, I was able to immerse myself in the story from Book 1 to Book 7. I hold all the characters in my heart and feel at a loss without more adventures with them. I look forward to many more stories in Corona and will measure it all against the family Whyndon.

In the Immortal Words of Maxwell Smart...

King Aydrian 'Missed it by that much'.

Excellent telling and end to a spectacular trilogy that gathers the major characters from the first Demon Saga along with the new protagonists from the second Demon Saga to take on King Aydrian, Marcalo De'Unnero and the mighty army and fleets of Honce-the-Bear.

It did seem a little predictable after one-on-one battles had ended with the protagonist seemingly felled, only to find out that they were saved through intervention by an ally or 'just because'. Although in Ponie's case, that was somewhat explained near the end. Also, the whole metaphysical aspects of Aydrian's powers was somewhat over-the-top.

Even so, I enjoyed the pace and the way R. A. Salvatore tied up all the loose ends on completion.

As always, props to Tim Gerard Reynolds performance.

What a wonderous story

I can't for the life of me, understand how people can write such wonderous stories as this, but am glad they do. How rich the world seems when you can submurge yourself into a story for a time and whatch as a world unfolds before you and carry you away to a world full of beauty, magic and love.
