Kethol is an adventurer with an easy smile, a man who is quick with a quip and quicker with a sword.

His partner, Pirojil, the ugly one, looks impressive and deceives people into thinking he's stupid to their sorrow-for his might and loyalty are worth a kingdom.

And the fledgling wizard Erenor, a man who tries to stay two steps ahead of his enemies, as well as one step ahead

This book is the ending of the Guardians of the Flame series, and although I really wanted to love it, I struggled to finish it.

My favorite part of the story is that the author did not have his aging characters ageless. (adult children - with children - is a giveaway there!) What do I mean? In some stories, the 50+ aged men are cavorting as if they are teens, leaping and womanizing and doing deeds of daring, in a way that most men couldn't do in their twenties. Very well done!

My least favorite

Mixing two worlds is very smart! J.R. Is able to make references to pop culture stuff that lends credibility to the dialog and the sarcasm is at its finest. Well done sir!

An okay ending, I guess, since it's not as if we're getting any more of them..

i miss Rosenberg and his writing. I wish he would have had the opportunity to answer some of the questions left by this series.

Joel Rosenberg ends his Guardians of the Flame series with a pretty good finale. It wraps up the loose ends of the previous two books pretty well, and how the loose strings get tied up is pretty interesting.

The series as a whole was worth reading, although I felt there were several novels that added virtually nothing to the series, there were other books that were quite good fantasy reads.

The final book in the series and it was pretty good. It took me a bit to warm up to the new characters but they were written well and were interesting enough in their own way to be compelling. Joel Rosenberg's Guardians of the Flame series is one of my favorites and he did what the comic book publishers never did...he let the characters get old and be replaced. Great stuff!
