The Sentinels is the third and final book in the Stone of Tymora series written by R.A. & Geno Salvatore, a father and son team. R.A. Salvatore is one of my favorite adult Fantasy writers, as I find his descriptions of action sequences to be the on par with no others. He dominates that field and outshines all of him competitors.

Maimun uncovers the mystery of the Stone of Tymora in this finale tale of the trilogy.

As with the first two books, The Sentinels is written in the perspective of the main character, Maimun. Unfortunately, even hearing the tale from his perspective doesn't make him a likeable character. He comes across as a snot-nosed little brat who disrespects his superiors.

The Sentinels is the concluding novel to the Stone of Tymora trilogy by R.A. & Geno Salvatore. The first book is The Stowaway and the second is The Shadowmask.

Book three is the better part of the trilogy, but the overall trilogy is a 3 star rating.
Finally, after two books, we get to see some deliberate action and character development by our two protagonists. There's still an unnecessary number of deus ex machinas, but at least it's woven into the plot — though the ending feels rushed and intended solely to leave the series open to sequels.

a decent read, some good scenes in, though smoe of the fight scenes would probably have read better in a boook not aimed at teens
