David Dalglish Well. I think it is, but admittedly I'm a little biased. Just a little, though. Tiny bit.

Shelves: fantasy, kindle
One helluva of a trilogy with an epic ending that does it justice. A central theme of philosophical rigidity is explored through multiple angles, with the hero not being a god but a man who finally understood that without standing up for principles in the real world, with all of the nuance that comes with it, there is only the destruction of all one holds dear. Having Ashur be the progenitor of some of the darkest magic to show up in the Half-Orcs books was stunning and disturbing and Karak's ma ...more

A veritable masterpiece.

Wow, Dave, Rob, I want you to know this is by far my best read in like oh I don't know years.
And I'm a kindle unlimited reader from way back. I do believe I've read everything you've written
Rob I would love to tea the original 80-something chapter outline. I disagree with your statement
. I believe your followers would read the happening's in Dezreal no matter how long it was. Or sometimes I'll listen.
The guy you picked to do the audible..... Again, masterful work gentle

Worth Reading

I read the series by David first and felt that a little of the history was missing. Having read the all three tools in this series I am now happy that this has been addressed

Surprisingingly deep and entertaining

Not sure if you would describe them book as "an alternate version" of the creation story, but it did a good job bringing me into that world.
And sprinkled along its many routes were words that are as wise as they are true.

Overall a great finish for the series! But i didn't care for all the subplots that didn't really lead anywhere.
Too many subplots introduced late in the book (many of which were interesting but not really resolved) dragged down this final volume of a too-long-by-half epic fantasy.

I'm seeing now that this is something of a prequel to Daglish's later "Paladins" series that takes place on the same world with the same two gods (Ashur and Karak). That explains things a bit but but it doesn't really excuse the last minute plotlines.

Ultimately, a trilogy about warring deities should have focused more on the war

A perfect conclusion to a perfect series. I opened this book expecting great things, as I have read so many great books by David Dalglish in the past. I was not disappointed. Dezrel is an incredible world, described in an incredible way, filled with incredible characters. Every chapter kept me interested and on my toes, and I truly struggled to put this book down. Any book that with plot twists that are so unexpected and crazy I have to stop reading and think for a while is a book I would recomm ...more

Thank goodness I'm finally finished is all I can say... and disappointed.. oh well..lots of ends left dangling which they say will be taken care of in other books, even listing 3 more books up and coming although they don't know when??? Seriously?

Top notch finale of the Gods trilogy, setting up much of what we know from the Paladins and Half-Orcs. Minus the time-sink that is apparently Velixar, I came out of the trilogy reinvested in the split sides of the Gods, now knowing how it all started.
