Number 26 in the quest to read 100 books . . .

The last book in Darien's Tale . . . (repackaged under that title after the fact . . . also known as the 'Owl Trilogy.'

The last, and possibly the best, book in the trilogy. The most interesting character from the second book, Keisha, is back as a competent young adult in the process of becoming a full fledged healer. Darien is now "all grown up" and ready to assume his responsibilities bot as a the leader of the Hawkbrother encampment in Valdemar and as ambassador.

The action of the story, circles back to the beginning of the trilogy and the question of what happpened to Darien's parents in the first place, who were missing as the first book began. It's a quest to find them, or what happened to them . . .

In the best of all possible ways, this hearkens back to the first Lckey books I read, the "Vows and Honor" series. Like that early series (Lackey's first), the motif of the journey allows a tour through the wonders of the world Lackey has created, and the motif of two people bound by friendship, and more, as they travel along, learning each other and growing in confidence and ability, is very satisfying. Good stuff.
