Overall, good wrap up. Bush tied up the loose ends of the story and made the prophecies make sense in terms of the larger story. Annandale and Roderic are pawns moving to correct some problem with the pattern that they cannot understand until after it happens. Amanander is making motions to grab the throne after waking from an unnatural sleep. Deirdre, the M'Callaster, is always at Roderic's side to encourage him and to aid him in ways he doesn't know he needs.

Oof, I have waited too long to review this, and now I remember little about my reaction to it, except that I was saddened that so little time had passed, since one of the things I really enjoyed about the second book is that it was a generation later than the first. It was a decent conclusion to the trilogy & had more exciting high drama and epic doom.

This seemed a little anti-climactic. In terms of the story arc, it was fine, but the resolution as depicted was less fraught than the build-up, and magic was not as important to this book as it was to the first one.
