Like the other reviewer I too have been reading this series for eight years but not with the eager anticipation that reviewer felt. It's been more a case of wanting to get to the end to find out if I wasted as much time as I thought I had. The first two books- The Kings Dragon and Prince of Dogs were original and evey bit as enthralling as they promised but then followed three of the longest most confusing and obtuse novels I've ever read and I read a lot(on average a book a week). Mulitple plot lines, far too many characters seemingly out of nowhere and a whole load of religious /mythical mumbo jumbo that at times I just wanted to scream in frustratrion.Only with this last one has the fog slowly cleared and some( but not all ) of the mulitple threads have come together to make some kind of sense and then just when you think finally I get it Ms Eliot adds an epilogue that is both pointless and leaves yet more questions unresolved- please promise me that doesn't mean there's an another of this interminable saga to come! If you have patience, a lot of time to kill - like a long long hospital stay or several long haul flights and you like your fantasy writing to be onscure dense and puzzelling then knock yourself out. Otherwise read Tolkien,Frank Herbert's Dune,George R.R Martin or Diana Gabaldon. They really can tell a massive story and keep you hooked from page to page.

Its hard to say much about this without spoiling it for those who are yet to read it. It is the final chapter in the crown of stars saga, and it ends the story neatly, the heroes win the bad guys lose.Characters pasts are finally revealed and well you get the idea.

Crown of stars is as well written as the rest of the series, but offers no major suprises, it just brings it all to a neat close.

If you have read the rest, you will no doubt read and enjoy this. Then feel ambivilent about it. Getting to the end of a long series of books usually has that effect.

I have just realised that I have been reading this series of books for 8 years! And boy was it worth the wait...Frankly I usually get bored with these long, rambling, seemingly unending fantasy series' but not this one. Starting with King's Dragon in 1998 Elliott builds and sustains a hugely impressive net of interlocking grand themes which come to a final reckoning in this the final book - Crown of Stars. In a nutshell: Complex, fascinating characters; deftly described cultures and landscapes; religion in freefall; conspiracy and lots of really bloody warfare; sorcery on an epic scale; the most maddening central mystery rather like a chinese puzzle and finally a love story to die for. I don't usually write reviews but honestly more of you out there need to read these books - and hopefully inspire Kate to write more!

After reading this huge epic series over and over during the past ten years or so, finally made it to the end. It is worth the effort. All of the complex plot strands are finally resolved in a truly satisfying manner but all within the last 200 pages or so! I found my self reduced to tears by the fate of one particular character so brilliantly done there, Ms Elliott. As with the previous books in the series I found there was a little too much padding description for my taste (I was skimming long paragraphs frequently) and I really just wished she could get on with the storyline with a bit more focus. Rambling overlong discussions, dialogue leading nowhere much were offset by exciting and gripping action sequences. Perhaps about half as long would have been a more than adequate length? Having said all that I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series and it says a great deal for the author's storytelling abilities that the central 'identity' mystery and cataclysm mytharc was enough to keep me going to the end on its own. Realistic, sympathetically drawn figures, portrayed with real humanity. A variety of creatures scary, fantastic and awe-inspiring do credit the her imaginative flair. I would recommend this series to anyone who has the stamina to stay with a long but essentially satisfying creation.

Fascinating read of the land of Novaria which now looks like what Europe may have appeared to be when the ice age was receding.

Very good idea to use past geography to create a fantasy land to enhance an epic tale such as this, and how the inhabitants managed to cope with the stresses of changing climate and changes to the coasts as sea levels changed.

The final book in the series is more of how the characters from the earlier books managed to cope with the changes and how they cope with other races. A pleasant read to finish the series.

As the 7th book and the final of a long running series I had to read it. I have been buying all the books in the series immediately on the Kindle as soon as I finished the first book. I love the imagination and new worlds of Kate Elliot. How do you end the series so every character's story is concluded ? - maybe you need another volume. I agree with a previous reviewer that the epilogue was confusing and unsatisfactory, and unnecessary. It seems the more epic the tale the harder it is for authors to find an ending.
