The tone of the tale has altered again, reflecting the landscape of the story. There is a feeling of space, of time, and of things coming together. Yet unfortunately, the more things start coming together the more they start falling apart. In both timelines there are twists and turns which take us into different directions. faces from the past appear in both worlds, offering insight and advice, adding to the different layers of the tale being told.
I found that this book in the series took on a further narrative change, the writing style though still very descriptive seems to have in a way matured somewhat. There is no feeling that this part of the story was rushed, it feels organised and more structured. it flows nicely and it would appear that many of the errors noted in the first two books have been resolved. As before we are left hanging on the final page, only this time there is more than one cliff hanger to content with. I look forward to book four 'Legacy of the Abandoned one' with eager anticipation.
There are some wonderfully funny moments in this book. Although Robert Franks has a handle on the traditions of world mythology he doesn't get too serious and allows his delightful sense of humour to enliven it all. There is chaos and mayhem in abundance and a great deal of excitement. If you love fantasy you will love this book and those still to come.
Anna is still missing in time and Jason, Kylie and Jason's friend the librarian Ant travel back to early America, hoping to find her (although Ant doesn't really want to).
Gobswhistle and Etain remain in the here and now with another new character, the American Emma who is missing her husband and son.
For me, the sections with Gobswhistle et al were the highlight of this book as they seemed to be followed by carnage, chaos, destruction and general mayhem but in a mostly comical way.
The threat of The Medb is still there and there is a nice twist at the end that sets both story strands up nicely for book four, and for me book four cannot come soon enough.
An excellent addition to an excellent series.

I felt that this book was getting a bit complex, and after starting off as a book for YA and above, it seems more of an adult only book this time. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Wendy
Robert J Franks has done I again. Another addictive read that I couldn't put down. These books are up there with the likes of the Harry Potter books and in my honest opinion, would... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
