I think this was my favourite book in the Stewart/Riddell trilogy. This book is very much frontier-fantasy, i.e. a sort of cowboy feel but in a land with fantasy creatures in it. It focuses on three different storylines which gradually get drawn together.

The first continues Micah, Cara and Eli's story as they travel through the Weald. They meet two new characters, brothers Cody and Ethan who not so dissimilar to Micah when he first headed out into the weald. Not masses happens in this storyline

Review posted on my blog The Otaku Librarian.

I had such high hopes for this book, since I so loved the first and believed it was just a second-book symptom in Blood Honey, but overall this was disappointing. Look at that cover, and look at the tag-line! The great blueblack wyrme and Thrace back in her soulskin fighting bravely. And that's not at all what this book was to me.

Yes, I did enjoy the journey with Micah and Eli, but it felt quite repetitive when they met the two brothers who are comple

A disappointing ending.

As a series, these books have been pretty strong. The concept behind them was the perfect mix of classic fantasy and original ideas, but they fell short in a few too many places.

This book was by far the weakest of the three. It lacked the unique yet nostalgic feel that the other books held, as well as having a weaker plot. The beginning seemed to set out many (perhaps a few too many) plot lines that looked as if they would all intertwine in some major climax at the end of

What do I love about this series?
It's really hard to put my finger on. The synopsis implies Micah and Thrace at the main two characters, yet the weald encompasses so many more characters. None slowed the pace or took away from the lingering hope of Micah and Thrace finding each other in the end.
I would have liked to see the Keld a bit more in this final book, but over all I was satisfied.
I loved how the wyrmes had chapters and story lines just for themselves, not simply being displayed as animal

The team behind the edge chronicles have done it again! While perhaps not as clever or epic as their previous series, this is still a triumph of writing. They create a world with a lot less detail, it is very barren with only a small number of characters, and yet still create a relevant and engaging story with interesting characters. Across three novels, the world of wyrmeweald shows us that it's not all about the world you create but how you create it. ...more

So, the final instalment of the so-far immensely excellent Wyrmeweald trilogy... how did it fare?

This is very much a continuation of the last book, the trilogy pretty much has to be read in order, or it would be greatly impoverished. So this review is not designed for those who have not yet read the proceeding books, I always avoid storyline details heavily at any rate.

As the last book finished, many storylines were in play. The great white wyrmes out in new lands, Thrace wintering in their old

A wonderful and affecting conclusion to this great dark fantasy about a region where dragons preside - and the few human travelers often become part of the Bone Trail. Full of death, hubris, violence and revenge, this is not another Edge Chronicles. This is Micah's story, who survived because he traveled with Eli the cragclimber; Micah loved Thrase, the kin girl bonded with Aseel the whitewyrme, but lost her fully to dragonkind. He and Eli now bring Cara along on their travels because they rescu ...more

Spannend bis zur letzten Seite!
Loved the illustration and the look of the book, couldn't really get on with the story. I may go back to it afresh sometime; the problem may have been my mood. ...more
