"Fantasy fans, look no further for your next adventure! Graham's brilliance is in the details: beyond the powerful allegory, you'll find snow leopards, Black Wolves, luminescent butterflies, poison cyranis-coated arrows, Fire Giants, intricate geography, and of course, the scorching breath of dragons. Turn off the cell phone and tell your friends you're busy tonight!" --Harry Kraus, MD, bestselling author of Breathing Grace, The Chairman, and Could I Have this Dance?
"L. B. Graham's third book in the Binding of the Blade is just as good as the first two! With many mysteries solved, and many, many more revealed, it leaves you longing for the next one!" --Erin E. Brown, fiction reviewer and committed Binding of the Blade fan

I have read it twice since I bought it. Each time it was hard to put the books down once I picked them up. The world that is in these books is pretty big. I really enjoyed the glimpses of a Big history that if given throughout the book. That is something I like about LoTR, and I believe this book does a good job with that as well. It makes you feel like your reading about something much bigger than only what's contained in the book.
One element of a certain person's return seemed a bit over-the-top to me, and the beginning of the book confused me until I realized that it was a flashback to the demise of an important character, long ago. Once into the story proper, it read much like the last books and was very entertaining.
When I reached the end though, I felt cheated. Everything, from multiple subplot directions, was heading toward a massive, final conclusion in the war against Malek, and then... it just ended. Of course, with a great ray of hope--but it ended! No huge battle where you discovered the fate of the characters, good or bad. Did I mention it just ended?
Was the day saved? Did certain characters facing imminent death, die, or not? Did the bad guys die or live to fight another day? Was a certain character truly Malek in disguise? Etc...
I am amending my review here, as it has become clear that there is supposed to be a book five. I still wish the book would have ended in a less abrupt fashion and at a less critical time in the story. I was expecting at least another chapter or two. It is still a great continuation of the series, but it didn't feel like a complete novel, in my opinion.
I want to know how it really ends, so I'll definitely be watching for book five.
