The second Key to Time storyline comes to an end not so much with a bang, but a "myeh."

Stronger than the last installment, the story still suffers from dead spaces where characters are forced to sit around and info-dump plot information or recap what's happened so far--not only in the story but the entire three-story arc.

In the end, it becomes just about what you'd expect and not much more. In fact, the ending isn't exactly the most memorable and fascinating because I just finished listening an

A tiresome end to a tiresome trilogy. It's an over-complicated train wreck. There are quite too many things going on at once and all being explained through frequent info-dumps with very little to keep one interested enough to slog through it.

The Fifth Doctor, human tracer companion Amy, and her sister and rival Zara close in on the last segment of the Key to Time.

The Key 2 Time series wraps up with its best entry yet. "The Chaos Pool" is open to criticism for being a bit overcomplicated and just a bit fanwanky, but it delivered a story that intrigued me, surprised me, and made me laugh out loud at least once.
Interesting if complicated ending to Key to Time segment.
