Everything wrapped up nicely - and done well.

I liked this series. I read it when it first came out, and have the two preceding books as well.

What I said then holds true here - Joyce's reading takes some getting used to, as do his weird pronunciations of character names and places. But if you've got the third book here, you must be ok with it by now.

Feist brings the plot to a satisfactory ending without it being too trite or deus ex machina, and there's no shortage of things going on to make it an exciting read with plenty of action and plot twists over two different worlds, with a nice bit of culture clash as characters crossover in both directions.

No real criticisms, apart from points I made earlier - all the major heroes constantly throw themselves into danger yet all survive despite the cannon fodder soldiers surrounding them being cut to ribbons, and there are too many characters who seem to have stepped off the medieval catwalk, being described as incredibly beautiful or ruggedly handsome and noble.
