A fantastic finish to this series. Thrilling, engaging, intellectual, interesting. You never quite know where it's going to go.

Perhaps the only disappointing thingwas the ending - there was a massive buildup to the trail throughout the whole book, and the trail itself was amzing, but then it seemed to go on a little too long with some unless things, before climaxing again and finishing.

But otherwise a fantastic read. I recommend the entir series to everyone, though they're not for the faint-hearted...
