In this, the finale of the Book of Deacon Trilogy, Myranda and the Chosen face their greatest challenges yet. Time is running out, and the Generals are growing desperate. Through victory and defeat, reunion and betrayal, neither the heroes nor their foes will rest until they have seen their task through to the end. The only question is, will it be the end of a war, or the end of times?
In the final book, Lallo picks up the pace right where he left off without stopping. You’re thrown headlong into action.
He keeps up with the characters true to form. Each one grows truer to their purpose and evolves to higher heights though. So you can see Myranda mature and develop admirably as does the plot.
The book held a lot of pleasant surprises. It kept the story lively and not at all repetitive as some trilogies tend to get. The ending sequence was exciting and had me rushing towards the end.
As for questions? I didn’t feel like I had any unanswered questions. I think Lallo had everything nicely wrapped up. All in all, it was a powerful finale to a great trilogy.
