Though I'm not sure that the story received the ending that it deserved, I was glad to finally have finished this trilogy that hadn't even been completed when I started it. Overall, Crispin's tale is certainly full of adventure and his growth seems to have been completed. Taken individually, this third book is good. But the problem is that when viewed as part of the whole, I can't help but feel a little shortchanged. The big surprise at the end of the second book would seem to point to Crispin and Troth's growth as a family unit. But that idea is quickly quashed and we find Crispin in similar circumstances to how it all began, only this time armed with more experience and wisdom. The second book ended abruptly and needed this third book. But even this book seems to leave the reader at a fair point in Crispin's tale, but without an enormous sense of closure.
