This is one of those books that didn't quite stand the test of time since I last read it. I still like certain characters like Dain and Thum, but I think one of the problems with this book for me was that I found both Alexeika and Pheresa, the two female lead characters very irritating. While I maintain that Pheresa isn't "that bad" of a female character (she does actual aspirations and ambitions). She rests mostly on being pretty for this novel. Alexeika, on the other hand, is pretty bad ass, b ...more

I liked this book, but unfortunately the sequel does not keep up with the first volume. I liked the boy's adventures and even if the story doesn't stand out for its originality, I found it quite enjoyable: the lost prince, the lost heritage, the quest for the magical talisman... if not new, they were at least decently developed. The characters also seemed quite interesting... but in the following two volumes the main character loses all depth: as long as he was a commoner he was 'true', but as s ...more

I was really disappointed in this. It felt like it wasn't moving. And since this was the last book of the triology I was expecting a lot more take control kind of action. But instead the main character went from being captured, to escaping to being captured again. It was so frustrating and rather boring. There was a lot of stuff that needed to be done in this book, since The Ring (book #2) didn't do anything. So this book just dragged on and on not accomplishing anything until the last 30 pages, ...more

Ho-hum....each book got progressively worse. The first one "The Sword" wasn't too bad I actually enjoyed it. The second had its moments but the way this one just finished and tied everything up....good lord. And the heroine the Alexeika makes such a damning decision that costs lives there is NO WAY anyone in their right mind would forgive her in the whole 10 pages it happens. Give me a break. This series was reccomended and after finishing it I'm very dissapointed. I'll be scratching anything by ...more

Again the third volume started out just fine, not great, not bad, just solidly decent. Then when I was getting close to the end I realized I still had no idea how this was going to reasonably wrap up in the remaining pages left in the book. the all of a sudden it was over and wrapped up. I felt the ending was rushed and rather disappointing, and was a complete let down from where the rest of the story had been. What could have been very good, became just OK. (see reviews for The Sword and The Ri ...more

Recommends it for: fantasy lovers
The Chalice really made up for The Ring and then some. The ending was rather predictable but it didn't take away from the excitement at all which I thought was very artfully done. Prince Gaebril's story was sad but it was deserved I think and the last two pages were very corny and dumb but in a pleasing way. Dain was cool.

I loved this series! I haven't had a fantasy series hook me like this since Dragonlance. The world building was excellent but so was the character development, which isn't an easy balance to strike!

This was an amazing end to the trilogy. I couldn't put it down and was almost late getting back to work a couple of times. If you like fantasy I recommend this trilogy.

A good sequel. Some aren't, but this one was neither less well written nor predictable.

In one word: meh. An anticlimactic ending to a very cliche story.
