A well-written series spanning four books shouldn't have been wrapped up so neatly at the end. It seemed as though Furey was rushing through the last few chapters -- the final battle with the Archmage and the confrontation with Eliseth -- as if she had too little time or too few pages to end with the same captivating detail as the rest of the story. It was too fast and weak, killing what should've been a fantastic read.

I forgot to update that I'd finished this, so hopefully I can give a semi-decent review.

I began reading the series a year and a half ago or something awful like that. I really enjoyed it for a long time till I got bogged down near the middle of this book. I think I just fell out of reading. When I finally picked it back up off my shelf I fell back in love with it. I have to think that my life just cut out reading and that it wasn't anything to do with the book.

It a lot like the Belgariad series

Published in 1997, this is the 4th in the Artefacts of Power series and also marketed as "the epic conclusion to the Aurian Saga". Ms Furey (b1955) is a British author and is a teacher by profession. Consequences of previous actions are elaborated on with the book declaring in the opening pages "Let the world tremble, for the Phaerie ride once more". This would be a difficult book to read as a stand alone as much of the background and character development has taken place in the previous 3 books ...more

Comparitively speaking, this was by far the best of the 4 books in the series. The story went quickly, and didn't seem laborious at all, something I kind of felt with the others. The story wrapped up a little quickly in my opinion, but it the book as a whole was a great way to wrap up the series.

As far as the series goes, I'd say it was so-so at best.

I'd give this book 4 of 5 stars, but the series overall 3.5 of 5 stars

While I was a big fan of the Aurian series, I was somewhat disappointed with the final book. After being invested for three novels, the fates of some of the characters just seemed far too anti-climactic. A passable read, but one that felt a little too rushed at times :(

Although this is a really good book, I found that it wrapped up a bit too quickly and left too many questions unanswered. Hopefully there will be another book or series that will explain what happens next.

The final book in this series was much better than the middle two; it was more exciting and interesting. The ending was decent and went the way I think it "needed" to.

The ending was too fast! She built the whole thing so slowly and then - BANG, everything was finished in 10 pages. Too fast for my taste. but I'm glad I re-read it. :D

After the disappointment of the 3rd part of this story, the closing episode does live up to its heritage. Exciting and adventurous it is a well fit ending.
