Fantastic Epic!

This series of Audio books kept me completely hooked. The cleverly written epic story has everything you could possibly want from a fantasy novel; fun and humour, excitement, love, fear and tears, not to mention some great action scenes. This is one of my favourite stories and will take some beating!

An end to the trilogy - but no more

Having thoroughly enjoyed and given five star ratings for the first two books, I approached this book with great expectations; however, I was left feeling underwhelmed.
This is NOT a bad book; indeed, I very much enjoyed it. However, it seemed purely functional, as if the series had to be a trilogy. Two was not enough, four was too many. A bit like Monty Python's Holy Hand Grenade.
As with the previous two, the naration is outstanding, and the story is well written - it just feels forced.
If you've listened to the first two, then you will have to listen to this one. It brings the story to a conclusion and answers many questions, raises many more, and answers them too for good measure.
The trilogy is five stars. The first two books are five stars. The naration is five stars. This book just falls short of the mark. I have still recommended all three audiobooks to a friend.
DON'T LET THIS RATING PUT YOU OFF STARTING THE TRILOGY, IT'S GREAT OVERALL.
