It's both odd and delightful that Branimir is without Dorofej's company for the majority of Maharia. I did miss Dorofej a little, but enjoyed being with Bran far more. The growth this character has undergone never fails to astound me and I honestly think Branimir's development outshines anything I've ever read before. I have mixed feelings about the denouement. The major plot points of the Kaelandur series reach a thrilling yet bittersweet conclusion, but a few critical loose ends remain. I can only assume these unresolved story points tie into other books in the greater Thrice Nine Legends Saga in the same way that events in the short story The Name of Death briefly enter Maharia. I'm mostly satisfied with the ending, yet I also need more. Robertson blends spectacular world building, memorable characters, and an intricate, remarkably elaborate plot into an unforgettable adventure. - Reader's Favorites

But I want to talk about Maharia specifically today. This is definitely the darkest book in the trilogy. I actually needed a couple of days in the middle to process a scene that crushed my soul. Seriously, still processing! But it makes sense. I mean, in a series where demons were flooding the earth and a little Kras is left wondering if he's the hero, or working with the villain, it is tough.
And this whole series has very carefully reflected a lot of issues we experience every day in our own lives. One could sit back and reflect on so many issues, but the author is very careful in the way that he lays out the story to not make any judgments, but to leave the reader up to deciding. Heavy thoughts buzzing through my head after finishing the series.
There is this interesting introspection on religion that comes up in the series with Alden and Sulana, and ends quite unexpectedly (though the author assures me that I will find more information in some of the other Thrice Nine Legends books!) One of the characters, Alden, is a devout worshiper of his God, and participates in some strange religious practices as forms of penance (very reminiscent of some of the things that were going on in Christian history which led to the Council of Nicaea.) Each character has a different view of the Gods, and through their views and reflections, one can delve into a philosophical debate in ones own mind looking at the various world religions of today and seeing the chaos that it causes.
The author also plays with the concepts of right and wrong, The idea of loyalty, the constant struggle of the few vs the many, the idea of happiness, and many others. And the author presents these thoughtful nuggets in a space that leaves the reader open to explore their own thoughts and ideas on each without being forced to believe one thing or the other. And it is this thoughtful approach that leads me to make the call that, despite some pretty heavy and dark scenes in Maharia, I want my boys to read this. I want to have these discussions with them. And I want to have these discussions with others, so everyone should go out and read this series. Seriously, we have to talk!
After listening to the story for a while I got into the plot and the action scenes and the odd voices of the many mystical creatures didn’t bother me so much. Great epic fantasy, intricate world building, and loaded with action. I plan to go back and read the other books in the series as well because this author is great at painting visual pictures and building characters.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
The pacing was steady and the characters always seemed to be moving toward the end goal, but the fact that my favourite character from the trilogy wasn't in the book until the final few chapters was a little disappointing. That's just my own personal opinion and doesn't detract from the story itself, which ties up fairly well in the end. You get a sense that there's still more to do, but not for the characters of this trilogy, and I'm okay with that.
I would recommend this trilogy to anyone who loves epic fantasy with intricate lore and rich layers of world building.
I look forward to future books from Robertson.
