Magic Time: Ghostlands, the third and concluding volume of Marc Scott Zicree's Magic Time trilogy, is a post-apocalyptic epic comparable to Stephen King's The Stand.

This ended up being a fun trilogy. It has its moments of cliched fantasy tropes and it has its moments of pure fun. It's a quest story with a nice troop of characters. Characters evolve and change, face problems, face the brink, and lots happens. There are a few moments when the story drags a bit, but for the most part it's fairly well-paced and pretty enjoyable.

Also, any character in a story that can reference Star Trek and Blade Runner is awesome.
Fun/Inventive post apocryphal story of the loss of tech and the rise of magic, similar to the Shadow Run role playing game that game out in the late 80s. (except Shadow Run kept tech as well).

The payoff in the end was a bit of a let down for me. The buildup was great but the payoff didn't live up to expectations. Great series overall.

Kind of "simple" in some ways, yet still well done and enjoyable. As I've said about other books in this style, it's not going to change how you view the genre, there are no mind-bending twists or what-have-you...but it's also not going to detract from your overall opinion of it either.

I love characters and endings like this, well almost. I like total wrap up and this leaves it wide open for episodes and continued interpretation. But I like the character development and the, to me, unexpected resolution.
After following the trails leading to the Source, what changed the world forever, a small band of travelers must work to save the remaining pieces of humanity from being consumed by the all-hungry Source.

Best of the three books in the series, great ending. Detail and imagery was amazing. When Zicree described 'The Source' I could just SEE it!
Possibly one of my favourite series, ever.
Was a good ending for the series.
