No review should begin with the end of a book, but this one does. In the last sentence of this beautiful, well-crafted work, third in the series by gifted writer Marian Allen, one of her characters gives the perfect summation: Verrina says to Tartarus, “And what we did…we worked in harmony with the Way.” Thus the theme is fulfilled: Obey our natures and things will work out.
Here is a book, indeed a trilogy with more twists, turns, plot devices, innumerable characters, geographies and ancient co

Silver and Iron was a satisfying conclusion to the SAGE trilogy. It does a great job of tying up all the various loose ends, such as more details on the four Divine Animals. There were some surprises as not everyone acted in the way that we might have expected from the two previous volumes, but it all made sense in the end.

I was fortunate to win the whole trilogy through Goodreads First Reads. I recommend the series to any readers who enjoy fantasy that is not too dark. The characters and the wo
A satisfying conclusion. The problems I have with the first two books in the series remain, but the characters and the stories are stronger and work to increase my enjoyment. In particular, the stories within the story take on a fairytale quality that made the diversions and myths more real to me, in that odd unreality yet reality way. The author did a good job of capturing the feeling of fleeting dreams as one wakes to find it all fading away. The character arcs wrap up a bit too neatly, but I ...more

Exciting conclusion to an entertaining series. A few surprises that I had not anticipated -- and that is always a good thing. These are not stand alone books - so if you haven't read the first two books, this one will be very hard to follow. One question I had throughout the series -- the series is entitled SAGE -- I am not sure what the meaning of this is. I found myself looking for reference to what it might mean or stand for throughout all the books and never discovered it's purpose. But I wo ...more

A feast of threads and plots coming together in a most graceful and exciting way. Marian Allen's trilogy is a must-read if you want to experience fantasy, romance, riddles in words, humor and action. I loved these books and can recommend them with all my heart.

For as long as I can remember, I've loved telling and being told stories. When, at the age of about six, I was informed that somebody got paid for writing all those books and movies and television shows, I abandoned my previous ambition (beachcomber), and became a writer.

I've worked as a high school teacher, an executive secretary, a soda jerk, a bank clerk, an accountant, and in Red Cross Youth S
