Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the concluding book of the JOURNEYS OF THE CATECHIST trilogy, the first two being CARNIVORES OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS and INTO THE THINKING KINGDOMS. As with the first two books, this was a light, enjoyable read that provided a satisfying conclusion to the series. There isn't much difference in the storytelling between the previous books and this one. The characters still run into one obstacle after another and always miraculously overcome it uitlizing some gift from Etjole's backpack. Still, it is a fun journey and I enjoyed the climax of the story. It was definitely unexpected.
Again, though, I have to voice my complaint of the dearth of character development. I have never seen four more static characters in all the fantasy I have read. I wouldn't expect for Etjole or Alitah to change much, but I had high expectations for Simna. He could have developed into a more interesting character than the treasure seeking person that he is. Not that he's a bad person, but, rather, he seems to have only a one track mind. Unfortunately, this never changes throughout the three books, despite the fact that Mr. Foster put him in several situations that should have had a serious impact on his character. Unfortunately, the author chose not to take advantage of these opportunities.
One thing I thoroughly enjoyed were the chapters on Hymneth, the antagonist of the story. Mr. Foster completely redeems himself from the cliched first chapter of INTO THE THINKING KINGDOMS in which we got our first glimpse of our villain. Hymneth is revealed to be a rather interesting character with different motivations than most fantasy villains. We get the quick version of the story of his life and we...well, I'll leave it to you to read the book. I don't want to ruin anything.

While I would have to agree that some of the events in the third book week were predictible, I feel that this is a highly entertaining and worthwhile book. The last chapters of the book alone are worth a king's ransom. I would reccomend this book to ADF fans new and old alike.

A brilliant series by Mr. Foster. The first book of the series was lovely masterpiece, the second did not quite fullfill the hopes the first had promised, this last one was, in my opinion, again better than the second. Maybe not achieving quite the free floating feeling of the first book, but a great story all the same. The whole series a lovely story, recommendated.

imagine your favorite video...and instead of it taking 2 hours to watch and enjoy...with this trilogy, you can spend several weeks or several days reading this series...i welcome the time when i will read it again (for the 4th or 5th time)...the characters are so real, their personalities and natures such that i almost expect to meet them on the street...
not one who particularly cares for fantasy, i initially rejected the 1st book as being too slow and lacking that Tom Clancy energy...my mistake...after the first few chapters, i was fully attentive...excellent, excellent books for those with good visualization...
amazing trilogy...probably my most favorite literature to date...
if this trilogy is ever made into a movie...i want to be there to make sure they don't screw this one up...

Book 3 of the series.
Well, I was hoping for something as quirky and smoothly written as the first two books. It was good, and it is an ending to a series I enjoyed, but it's not as good as the begining. Maybe it's just that it reveals too much at the end, sometimes a little mystery is more satisfying than a full disclosure. With that in mind, I'll shut up now.

Really like the story. Have read the series. Would read more of his books. I think he does a good job and evolves his character very well.
