This author is an excellent storyteller. The characters are well developed, gifted and flawed all in the same instant. Our hero has the most honorable of intentions…saving his twin sister…both of whom have magikal gifts. But, his desire…obsession…to rescue her often leads him to taking shortcuts in his training and putting his friends in danger. He is talented, eager and almost blindly fixated with defeating his foe even if he has to break some cardinal rules. You rather love to hate him…or, at least, often dislike him a great deal.
Join Ash in his journey. Meet his friends and foes. This is a series well worth reading as the author leads the reader down the twisted path to the end. Follow the characters and the clues to an ending that may or may not surprise.
The story ties up with a neat conclusion…there is no cliff-hanger at the end…and yet…I would not mind at some point if Bryant revisits the characters created in this trilogy. I have been a fan of her work for some time and this series did not disappoint. It is well worth the time and cost to read.
The lead character of the series is a maddening hero; he is at turns sympathetic and repulsive in his attitude and mannerisms. In other words: he is human. I think at heart, this kind of character creation is one of Bryant's finest gifts. Even her minor characters are not one-dimensional, black-and-white caricatures. She explores the grey of motivation and what can be (both good and bad) when obsession is paired with phenomenal power.
The conclusion to this 3-part series is wonderful. Bryant has woven an amazing story through all three books, and this one wraps everything up nicely; no question is left unanswered. I don't know at this point if Bryant intends to tell further stories around these characters, or if this is a free-standing trilogy. There is definitely more to explore in the world that she has created, but it is very satisfying to reach a solid conclusion in this book without a cliff-hanger pointing to the next.
