Format: Hardcover
Harshini is the final book in the first trilogy of Jennifer Fallon's The Hythrun Chronicles. And if that sounds confusing, that's because Tor has decided to put all six books into that series name, despite the fact that it's two different trilogies. In this book, a lot of the intricacies of the previous two books are undone and it's a lot more straightforward than either Medalon or Treason Keep. That can be a good thing, except that it loses a little bit of what makes Fallon's work so special. It's still a fitting conclusion, but things are wrapped up a bit too quickly and the characters are a bit flatter than normal.
Usually, I really like the way Fallon handles political intrigue, juggling so many balls that many authors would likely lose them all. In Harshini, she does a decent job, but I didn't get the same sense I have in her previous books, where R'Shiel and her companions have to constantly be moving in order to keep all of the balls in the air. Instead, this book almost has her do it in step-by-step fashion. She's solved one problem with Damin and Adrina's marriage, so she travels with them to Hytheria. There, Damin has his own problems, especially with having a Fardohnyan bride, so R'Shiel has to help him solve that problem. Then another roadblock gets in the way, and dealing with that one also helps her deal with a subsequent one. Then she has to go back to Medalon for the final showdown. It's almost fantasy politics by rote, and it got a little boring. Thankfully, Fallon's skill with characterization made sure that it didn't get too dull.
R'Shiel is still done very well, though she became a bit more wooden in this book than she has in the past.

I enjoyed this series of books and just wanted to see how the story continued after the end of this book
I had read the second Hythrun trilogy first so in actual fact although this was written first it actually continues the story from the 2nd trilogy - so it makes much more sensible to read it this way because all the characters are known and the action is easier to follow. The story is basically how to kill a god (!) and there is an element of Terry Pratchetts 'Lesser Gods story about it in that if you remove the people who believe in a god they (the god) disappear - probably best to leave it there (don;t want to spoil it for you) But what makes the books is the characters - Damin , Adrina and the Demon Child and you really get sucked into the story - I've read all three in just under three weeks because its one you want to dive into ..
There are some some very nasty characters as well , Hablet who sells his daughter for a treaty and a mother that seems devoid of all feeling
The action is sweeping across all three novels and sometimes you think that a promising action is cut short - but then I guess it would be over 6 books not three (hey, perhaps a Directors cut? )
In short a great read and I can recommedn it (and not just to fantasy novel fans)

I raced through the Demon Child trilogy and this was a good ending to it. But the ebook conversion was very badly done. They forgot the map! I had already seen the map in the previous two books but I don't know how you are supposed to follow the movements of the armies without one. Not knowing where the Hythrun provinces were was quite annoying.
The cover art of the ebook is cheap and hideous looking. They should have just stuck with the paperback cover picture. All of the ebooks in the trilogy seem to suffer childish and unpleasant looking covers.
Also, there is no chapter structure in the ebook, so you can't navigate around the book or jump to chapters. Not essential in a novel but still very shoddy.
The final problem with the ebook is that little care was taken with the newlines during dialogue. Sometimes you have to go back over the conversations to work out who said what, as it is confused by missing newlines.

A superb end to this trilogy though I recommend that the WolfBlade trilogy is read before this book. Stupid rules again!
