Picking right up where part 2 left off, this book doesn’t let up. It’s full of exciting combat, betrayal, fights for survival and, uncertain odds. This book had me eagerly anticipating what was going to happen next.

I normally don’t talk about the endings. Maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention or maybe I missed something. But the ending made sense to me, until the prologue where it left me confused. I’m not going to dwell on it because I enjoyed the series and story overall.

The narrator was excellent overall. This has been one of the few Audible books I’ve listened to that didn’t have a single audio hiccup.

I think this series could have been condensed down to a single book or two. The aspect of the story that benefitted most from this was the character development which is admittedly not my strong suit. After listening to these books over the course of four days, I know one character’s name. I tend to remember people (and characters) based on their actions and what they represent more than who they are as a person or their name, face, or voice.

As with the first two, I recommend this book. I think it makes for an excellent finale.
