Story Rating: *****
Cover Rating: C
This is the final volume in The Malloreon series, and the big culminating fight scene finally occurs. It’s full of action, adventure, trials, and a lot of unexpected, last-moment character development to help wrap up our main adventuring party’s own stories.
There are happy endings for most involved, and one happy ending in particular has me going “yes!” I won’t see which, of course, but you’ll know it when you read it.
The cover is slightly eye-catching but I don’t feel it’s quite representative of the story readers should expect. (Note: The cover I am reviewing is for the mass market paperback version I own. There are other formats with other covers.)
