When I picked up this series I never thought I'd be learning valuable life lessons from it. NEVER. But the author touches on some interesting subjects, like life and death and sacrifice. It's not as kid friendly as the first two. But still a well written and thought provoking story.

"Death and life are the same thing - like the two sides of my hand, the palm and the back. And still the palm and the back are not the same... They can be neither seperated, nor mixed."

"...when we crave power over life - endless wealth, unassailable safety, immortality - then desire becomes greed. And if knowledge allies itself to that greed, then comes evil. Then the balance of the world is swayed and ruin weighs heavily in the scale."

"Life rises out of death, death rises out of life; in being opposite they yearn to each other, they give birth to each other and are forever reborn."
