A VERY satisfying ending to the Lord of the Isles:Crown of the Isles series.

Garric and Co face the invasion of ‘new’ gods since the Change did away with all of their old familiar gods. So of course, they break up into groups and go fight. And by the end, Ilna, Cashel and Sharina end up Ascending and become the new Sister, Shepherd and Lady.

Pretty cool. I had a good time reading this. The writing, while familiar, didn’t grate on me like Mirror of Worlds did. It seemed a bit fresher, more polished. Really enjoyable and a good, happy ending.

a new trilogy wrapping up the Lord of the Isles Saga.

2 Magicians of cosmic power duke it out. Chalcus and Merota die, and in the end all the multiverses kind of come together into one new land.

Very 2 dimensional, you don’t feel a thing when people die, but it is a good fantasy yarn. Cheap fantasy is probably the term for this whole series.
