it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

Ashes of a Black frost is the third installment within a 3-part trilogy called 'The Iron Elves' and if anyone has read either of my reviews for book one (A darkness forged in fire) or book two (the light of burning shadows) then you will already be aware of how much i loved them and what i also think of the final book. This epic fantasy trilogy all comes down to one final, breathtaking and spine-chilling moment that is so drematic and stunning that it really is an ending to be proud of. Book two had also ended on a cliffhanger similarly to book one and so it was an eagerly awaited read that did not disapoint but one which only got better and better. The charicters by now were so reconisable to the reader that you felt as if they were part of your family and as to the ever lingering romance one could not help not to but wonder if it was ever going to be resolved and as a real romantic i was completely and utterly willing the charicters on to make the right (or what i imagined to be 'perfect') descision. If things could get better in the way of creativity and imagination then they did not disapoint when it came to the enemy and her trees (or should i say 'Sarka Har' (or Blood Tree) that became airborn, i mean when has anyone throughout fantasy literature ever conjured up a flying, dragon of a tree?! Spectaular! I was completely blown away by his creativity as an author and as a writer to be able to produce something as fantastical as this and to put it on paper is such a feat and i am in great awre of Chris Evans. The climax or finale at the end of the book seemed to have taken apsolutely ages to reach and a journey in which the reader had voyaged to as well as the charicters, so when it came to it you really felt so much a part of what was happening. I am a sucker for a happy ending and i could not help but let out a sigh of releif (as too did the main charicter i am sure) when it was deemed to be all over, and also then to go and fetch the box of tissues. Anyone who loves fantasy fiction needs to at least try this trilogy as it is so amazing, but i do understand that i cannot convince the entire world of how great Chris Evans is as an author...but perhaps a few people. I am now extremely sad that it is all over! x
