I only regret that it didn't come out on audible as I waited & waited to read it only to find out it wasn't coming out as an audio book. But the story was great I would recommend it to anyone who loves paranormal series that aren't sappy and tired.

While waiting for GRRM to finish his damn series, I have read many pale imitations and a few excellent uses of the fantasy genre to convey true human emotions and issues. This series and especially the Bone and Thunder book, places Chris Evans firmly in the latter group with Erickson, Abercrombie, Lynch, and Abraham. Much more than swashbuckling or magic in here and I thank Evans for the gift.

A good ending to the trilogy. It's good to get some closure, however this book is filled with deus ex machinas, people and things getting powers just in time to save the day.

Otherwise, this book was enjoyable and overall a decent trilogy.

Chris Evans continues his mastery of the genre. The eagerly awaited book three of the iron elves does not disappoint his fans.
A spellbinding series of twists, turns and surprises. A must read!! I shall look forward to the next Chris Evans mind-stirring book.

This is the third and final installment of the Iron Elves trilogy.
Evans has created some memorable characters faced with external and internal conflicts.
Swift Dragon remains the main focus but many we see grow and exceed who they were while others grow but it is less obvious as in the case of the prince.
As they race toward the final confrontation with the Monarch many join in the race on both sides of the conflict with an ending that was both surprising and yet fitting all at once.
This book draws on military history as well as ancient lore and magic making it both an odd combination but just as well and in some cases brings flashes of Glen Cook's Black company.

I would highly recommend this and also look forward to future endeavors by Chris Evans.

This is the fitting conclusion to a vastly different take on fantasy, one that I quite enjoyed reading, and would recommend to anyone who is tired of the "formula" that abounds in modern fantasy novels today.

The hero is not too "goody-goody" and his experiences are quite well described by the author...its almost as if you are watching a movie while reading.

Not for those with a fixed "Tolkein" take on fantasy...more for those who want something different. Great end to a fine work of fantasy.

This last chapter of the Iron Elves saga starts out promising enough. But I got the feeling that Evans was trying to wrap it up. Thing progress at a jerky pace and the chapters, especially at the end seem kinda disjointed. The ending for me was a huge let down and nonsensical.
