Beginning with the continuation of the story of Llew Silver Hand, The Endless Knot tells of the golden age when all of Albion is united under the Aird Righ (High King). Llew is established among the people, and even takes a bride. The book shows how he helps to build up his city and his people, until little things start showing up, saying that not is all right with the land. When his most beloved treasure is stolen, he goes on a journey that shows destruction and despair like never seen before, yet ends in the renewing of two worlds.

I must admit this third book was somewhat of a disappointment to me. It started out rather slowly, just following general life in Dinas Dwr. That was fine and dandy, but it was a change of pace from what the rest of the series had been and an unexpected one. As I mentioned with the previous two books in the series, I do not recommend this series for younger teens, and anyone else should be smart enough to use their own discretion. This last book in particular discussed married life a little more than I was interested in reading.

The end caused mixed feelings. I could see how it fulfilled everything that the author had intended from the beginning, but it left questions in my mind that I may never have answered.

Overall I would recommend the series, although the last book was certainly not my favorite of the three.
