WOW!!! Este libro si que me sorprendió. Nada fue predecible. En absoluto, ni siquiera sabía como podía realizarse el desenlace en las diez últimas páginas pero me ha encantado. Ha sido realmente un final perfecto y vertiginoso como los anteriores.

*****spoilers***** :)

Por un momento creí que Tarod y Cyllan no permanecerían juntos y eso me pareció terrible, pero me gusto que si lo hicieran...hubiera sido terrible sino. En cuando a Tarod me parece que tomo la decisión correcta y eligió ser quien e

Termino la trilogía de El Señor del Tiempo, por fin, que nunca me decidía a leerlo. Tengo que decir que me ha gustado mucho el final que le ha dado Cooper a la saga. La palabra que definiría este final, para mí, sería "satisfactorio". He cerrado el Kindle con una sonrisa, porque me he pasado el libro pensando: no sé cómo va a hacer Cooper que esto termine a mi gusto, no puede. Pero sí ha podido.

No quiero hablar mucho de la trama, por razones obvias, pero el único problema que he tenido ha sido l

It's time, Tarod knows what he has to do and believes that Aeoris, the supreme god of Order, will forgive his sins, even if he is not sure what are his sins...
But there's no space for doubts, of that he is sure, so he continues his search for Cyllan who was taken by a Warp. She has to be alive because if not... if not then there won't by a future.

And during his journey he witnesses what happens when fear controls the world. Innocents die, houses are burn and families are destroyed. Everything in

(…)Los que hayáis leído el anterior ya sabéis porqué tuve que callar mucho, y aunque aquí también suceden cosas, en sí es un libro muy espejado respecto al Proscrito.
Por una parte el ritmo, aunque con más movimiento y sucesos se me hace más pausado. De hecho, la mayor carga de sucesos que nos tiene con el aliento contenido se suceden de frías disertaciones, tan profundamente emotivas y racionales qu

Un gran final para una buena trilogía. Aunque hay personajes que no me convencen, porque, por ejemplo, Keridil me parece muy poco creíble, Tarod merece sin duda una mención aparte. Es un personaje lleno de dualidades, como la propia trilogía, un ejemplo de que la línea que separa el bien del mal es muy fina, y a veces depende del cristal con que se mira.
Aunque es una trilogía con bastantes clichés, es para mi un clásico de la literatura fantástica que cualquier amante del género disfrutará.

I just loved this trilogy of books. A cracking story, told at a fine pace and made all the more interesting by the fact that the views on the two opposing forces (Order and Chaos) are not as you might expect :)

I can't really say anything more without revealing spoilers, so suffice to say this is really an excellent, reasonably original fantasy story, highly readable and enjoyable.

A very satisfying end to the trilogy although in many ways, it's just a beginning. The battle between Order and Chaos rages on but for now, there is peace.

Una de las mejores historias que he leído en mi vida. La narración es emocionante, las descripciones muy buenas, los personajes atraen y la historia atrapa.

Por fin un nuevo viaje literario concluye; mucho más rápido de lo que esperaba cuando lo inicié, pero tan satisfactorio como me imaginaba. Es que no tardé nada en acabar la trilogía de la que vengo hablando hace ya semanas, fue libro tras libro, y hoy finalmente traigo la reseña de la conclusión de la historia de Tarod, aquel Adepto de nivel siete que debía nacer.

Previously on El Señor del Tiempo…

Lo primero os voy a resumir un poco la historia:

La típica batalla entre el Orden y el Caos ha terminado; y, de manera también típica, las fuerzas del Orden han salido victoriosas y ocupado la antigua fortaleza del Caos en un increíble desplante de imprudencia. Pasan algunos años, y el mundo dominado por el Orden (y sus representantes, el Círculo, una especie de orden monástica cuyos miembros se dedican a aprender alta hechicería) parece estar en paz, hasta que la naturaleza comienza a perturbar

... After the second it is difficult to do worse...

Only remarks here is about all the figurative characters, like those Initiates...

I thought Tarod was supposed to have grown in the Castle with them.
In all the trilogy, we meet quite a lot of them, and more than a couple are killed by him.... but except the adjectives, high, young, old...nothing distinguish them from each other.

There a like chess pawns...

Una magnífica resolución para la trilogía, con un clímax un poco largo y denso, pero que no le quita ningún mérito. El destino de todos los personajes principales "encaja" con su actuación a lo largo de los tres libros y en ningún momento pierdes la sensación de peligro que los rodea.

La única razón por la que tardé "tanto" en leer este libro es que no quería que se terminase. Me ha parecido un muy buen final para una trilogía que me ha encantado. Cada libro es mejor que el anterior (aunque tengo predilección por el primero), y me han hecho sufrir hasta el final, pero ha merecido la pena, menudo final.
Ah! Tarod y Cyllan son amor <3

After such a promising start with The Initiate, which I could not stop reading, this was such a disappointment for me. I found myself suddenly not caring for the fates of the main characters and it was so repetitive, the same ideas rehashed page after page.

Cierre de una trilogía interesante y entretenida, la novela se lee agradablemente. No es gran literatura, pero es que no intenta serlo.

She hated school so much, in fact—spending most lessons clandestinely writing stories—that she persuaded her parents to let her abandon her education at the age of fifteen and has never regretted it.

She continued to write and her first full-length novel was published when she
