Book Description

The final book in Robert Newcomb's magnificent epic fantasy trilogy 'The Chronicles of Blood and Stone'

From the Back Cover

The spellbinding fantasy that began with The Fifth Sorceress and The Gates of Dawn continues . . . Tristan and his twin sister, Shailiha, are the Chosen Ones, long prophesied to unite the opposing magics of the dark Vagaries and the benevolent Vigors. With the destruction of the Gates of Dawn, it would appear that the ravaged kingdom of Eutracia has been given the chance to cleanse itself, to heal – and the Chosen Ones the opportunity to fulfil their destiny under the tutelage of wizards Wigg and Faegan. But Fate would have it otherwise. For there is another who unknowingly possesses magic in his blood – a magic that, in the wrong hands, could unleash unspeakable evil. To find this unsuspecting soul and understand the threat that now faces them, the Chosen Ones and their allies begin a quest that takes them deep into the mysterious Chambers of Penitence and then across the Sea of Whispers to the sacred Isle of Sanctuary. They are not alone in searching. Krassus, devoted servant of the Vagaries, has dispatched ships of demonic slavers to scour the coast of Eutracia, taking captive men and women and bringing them to the island fortress of the Citadel, where evil dreams take the form of living nightmares. Aided by Tyranny, a pirate as fierce as she is beautiful, Tristan and his sister must destroy the demonslavers’ fleet and rescue the ill-fated pawn of magic, now imprisoned in the Citadel. For Krassus seeks to awaken the magic in this one’s blood and imbue him with dark enchantments from the mysterious Scrolls of the Ancients – transforming him into an instrument of evil the likes of which the world has never known . . . and will not long survive.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and was not dissapointed by the third. Newcomb carries on the development of the main characters whilst introducing new ones to the ever suffering band of heros. More secrets are revealed by Wigg making Tristans situation ever more desperate. Perhaps Wigg should just come clean and reveal ALL his secrets in one go instead of drip feeding them in moments of crisis - but then we wouldn't have a story would we! Looking forward to the next one.

Having just finished reading this second trilogy, I've just found out that the story isn't finished, but the final instalments are not going to be published. These books are good, but what's the point of starting of the story if you can't finish it? So now it looks like I will never find out what happens. Thoroughly disappointing.
I won't be buying any of this authors books again for fear of the same thing happening again.

Nice follow on to an already great series. Robert is slowly expanding his world and adding wonderfull background to an already colourfull canvas. He seems to be keeping all the little threads together sucessfully and weaving them into great stories.
Looking forward to the next book!

Having read both previous volumes of the Chronicles of Blood and Stone - the Fifth Sorceress & the Gates of Dawn - and enjoyed them immensely, I had been eagerly awaiting the third instalment to the series. Sadly, though, I was disappointed. I found it possibly the dullest fantasy novel I have ever read. The only thing going for it is that the story is actually ok, just so long as you can keep reading without becoming too bored.
Hopefully Mr. Newcomb will provide a more entertaining story next time.
