C2013: FWFTB: blood, revenge, swamps, Fateguard, stronghold.Having enjoyed the first 2 books, it was a no-brainer to decide to get my grubby hands on this book. The author trusts his readers to be able to recall all the events of the past 2 books as there is no ‘what has come before’ but as I have read them in fairly quick succession, I did not struggle too much at all.The changes in POVs are handled well and although, the female characters are not developed as well as the male characters, the ...more

Very strong conclusion to the trilogy. If you've read David Gemmell's Legend (which I only did about a month ago) parts of this book should be familiar It's an homage, that even Nathan Hawke (aka Stephen Deas) acknowledges. The homage itself actually works really well within the context of the world these books have created & it's definitely it's own beast. The fantasy & military components of the finally meld together & it makes the conclusion suitably thrilling. You definitely need ...more

I wanted to enjoy this series i really did... but quite simply most of book 2 and certainly all of book 3 , was read out of the obligation to read the whole set.
whilst there were , I'll admit moments in which i was cheering the heroes ... those moments were few and far between.
The story had much potential, but seemed to really get lost in itself , and unfortunately came across very samey .

A valiant attempt , I can only hope I am in the minority in my thoughts of this.

I guess the lesson learn

A very satisfying last book in the trilogy, The Last Bastion is good, old-fashioned, hard-boiled fantasy. Thinks Game of Thrones meets Vikings, with a dash of Conan thrown in for good measure. The characters are by this time extremely well developed, and the plot works well as the story reaches its conclusion. I do have one gripe about a fairly large, nasty thread left dangling, but 'm assuming it's leaving room for a further story.

Without a doubt, the best of the three. But don't try to read it without reading the first two.
There were moments when I was on the edge of my seat. Writing was engaging, exciting and detailed.
Ending was a little abrupt, but I didn't mind a bit.

Posledné kapitoly patrili k najvydarenejším častiam celej trilógie. Kniha mala podobne ako celá trilógia slušnú úroveň, ale nič prevratné ani objavné čo sa týka spôsobu písania, podania príbehu alebo nápadu.

Strong characters who sometimes find themselves with moral dilemmas. Dark atmosphere with lots of fighting.
