Under the all-seeing eyes of the assembled gods, armies are on the move. The Game has begun. And when it ends, the world will end, too.... In The Unwaba Revelations, the third and concluding part of the GameWorld trilogy, a way must be found to save the world; to defeat the gods at their own game.
A daunting prospect under any circumstances, made worse by the fact that the gods, who control all the heroes, are blatantly cheating by following only one rule - that they cannot be defeated by their own creations. As epic battles ravage the earth, Kirin and Maya, guided only by an old, eccentric and extremely unreliable chameleon, and egged on by the usual rag-tag gang, carry out their secret plan; a plan so secret that, in fact, no one involved has any idea what they are doing!
Monsters, mayhem, mud-swamps; conspiracies, catastrophes, chimeras; betrayals, buccaneers, bloodshed - The Unwaba Revelations continues the roller-coaster journey that began with The Simoqin Prophecies and gathered momentum with The Manticore's Secret. Traversing earth, sea, and sky, realms both infernal and celestial, worlds both imagined and material, this book will draw you irresistibly into a tantalizing, action-packed, epic race to reclaim the flawed, magical world of its heroes.
The final book in the Game World trilogy.
It's a mixed back. The ending is perhaps the best part with the preceding chapters ranging from strong hit to just missed it. This however is a series you can't space out to or get distracted by something else. My review my have differed if I hadn't done either of those things.
There's a few chapters that present themselves as journal entries hardening back to Stoker, a few long chapters dealing with the war but they fall a bit flat.
Ramon tikaram once again gives a great read making those chapters better than they would have been had you been reading it.
A fine close to a fun trilogy.
