This to a very good end to an excellent trilogy. The story may get slightly confusing with the many character's involved but everything is brought together in a fitting ending.
I hope there may be more stories of the twin world there are a lot of thing's that could be explored to give many an interesting tale.

An excellent ending to an excellent trilogy.
There are plots a plenty, twists and turns throughout and to complicate further entwined stories in both worlds.
Part way through the book it seems that the intrigue, plots, suspicions, double dealing and decision choices are on overload but then as the strands start to unwind the genius of the writer weaves a clever ending to the lives of the twinborn individuals in both worlds.
This is probably my favourite book of the three as I found the characters gained more personality as the story developed and elements of humour lifted the characters often from depressing situations. My favourite character was Kyrus/ Brannis' s grandfather Axterion who was entertaining throughout this book. My least favourite was Juliana, probably as I found her role for most of the book an annoying side role.
An excellent read one i would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic end to my favourite series of 2013 12 Jan. 2014
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The originality of the concept for this series, having characters live lives in two very different worlds, was what first struck me that this was going to be something very special. The author continues to impress me, not only did he go on with this idea but has developed it as well. The importance of passing information between worlds, having alliances that work on both sides and many other important ideas are all developed in this book.

The descriptions are again of the perfect length, there is enough detail to fully visualize the world, but they are not so lengthy that they take to you away from the story for too long.

The reminders of what has happened in the previous two books was almost always the right length, enough there to remind the reader of an event but not so long that you feel you are rereading the story again. The nature of Iridan’s death was about the only thing that I felt wasn’t detailed enough early on, although later in the story I was given enough to remember how it happened.

The characters are again enjoyable and their personalities continue to develop. I really liked how Brannis and Kyrus have blended together, both becoming stronger as a result. It was interesting to read about Kyrus’s doubts about whether he is doing the right thing and fear he will turn into another Rashan. The thoughts and feelings of all the characters are believable, interesting to read about, and come across clearly.

While it is now clear exactly who is good and who is evil, there is always enough good in evil characters, and evil in good characters to keep them realistic and more interesting. The evil characters often also see themselves as doing the right thing.

The relationships between the characters across both worlds are done well, along with the many plot points that are both in their own world and across both. For the most I was able to follow who was who, and what was going on, only a couple of times did I feel a little lost. Considering just how much is going on and how complex it all is, this was quite a feat.

We get to see even more of the world in this book, and like the characters it is varied and has real depth to it. It is really well done especially considering there are two worlds in this book.

The story is excellent, there are many plot points all being developed through the book, almost all of them are interesting and continue the overall story in some way.

The action sequences for the first three quarters of the book were rare. There was interesting things going on with the story, but I did think it could do with some more excitement at times. Also most of the early action scenes are very one sided and it was pretty obvious who was going to win (Rashan battling against unknown soldiers, Brannis and his friends fighting off some street thugs, and Jinzan with his staff attacking civilians and local militia). Since all of these main characters were so much more powerful than those they were fighting against, it took away from the tension and you never felt they were in any real danger. The battle scenes for the remainder of the book are fantastic, Avalanche really gets to live up to its name, and when the main characters finally get to face each other, the scenes are exciting, varied and you are never sure who is going to win.

Just like the previous two books this is a big one. It has a fairly small print and large page sizes so it is even longer than the 381 pages would suggest. It’s not a problem since so much happens and it is almost all interesting.

The author did an excellent job of tying up the loose ends, but left a few just loose enough that there could be more books in the series, but if there aren’t then you aren’t left feeling something has been missed out.

I have really enjoyed this series and it is easily my favorite read of 2013. It is one of those books where I found myself really hoping that the book and author will be successful in a big way. The story is so fantastic that the author truly deserves to have it be successful, the originality, story, characters, and quality of writing is so much superior to major fantasy novels out there I really want to see this series do well.

If I had to decide I would probably pick book two Aethersmith as my favorite in the series. Almost everything about this book was great, the story, the characters, the worlds, the descriptions, and the many plot points, it was just lacking a little action and fast pacing compared to the Aethersmith.

I am excited about the authors next project “The Mad Tinker Chronicles” which will pair up Tellurak with a completely new world, which seems to be more steampunky, in a new Twinborn series. I had been thinking for some time how cool it would be to have other worlds for the Twinborns to live in and I am glad to see this will be happening. And if it anywhere near as good as this series it is likely to be my favorite read in 2014.

A big thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book.

In full disclosure I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars An appropriate and well-crafted ending to an excellent series. 27 Jan. 2015
By J.R. Karlsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you've made it as far as the ending of Aethersmith then you know exactly what to expect from Sourcethief. There is no need for an in-depth review on my part, those have been provided by the (deservedly) growing number of fans of this series. Simply put, if you've made it this far, you should definitely finish it off.

An excellent series, and one which shows the world that an independently published author can put out fantasy work that is not only as good as, but better than most of the traditionally published books being released today.

The twinborn concept is used in a delightful fashion, with plots and plots within plots developing over a series of increasingly complex machinations that flit from character to character and world to world.

My one concern was that this final book is shorter than the other two, but given that the world was already built it was a matter of moving the pieces about and watching them in play. Morin juggles the varying viewpoints with deft aplomb and doesn't skimp on content or conclusion. Everything is wrapped up neatly and nothing feels overly rushed.

The conclusion is satisfying, and while this particular story is fully told it does leave the author with the ability to revisit his world at a later date, which he has done with the Mad Tinker Chronicles.

Rashan Solaran is one of the great creations of the last decade of fantasy, but it is through the eyes of Kyrus Hinterdale that I enjoyed the story most. Their inevitable conflict and the third party of Jinzan Fehr constantly looking to be rid of both of them made for some tense but memorable reading.

Hats off to you Mr. Morin, an appropriate ending to a great adventure. I look forward to reading whatever you write next.
4.0 out of 5 stars Trilogy is completed. Excellent work! 22 Jun. 2014
By N. Wallach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The concluding volume of this trilogy is a puzzling conundrum. On the one hand, the marvelous concept and story lines are brought to successful and satisfying resolutions; yet, on the other hand, there are many pages of drudgery to work your way through. Because of that loss of focus, and also because some of the major plot lines get resolved in a fashion that is too predictable and anti-climactic, I decided the give this final volume a four star rating. This was still a fun read, and tied all, if not most, of the loose ends together. So, please do not derive from my comments that I did not like the book - that is clearly not the case.

As those who read the previous volumes know, the Warlock Rashan and Councilor Fehr head opposing blocks in the war between Kadris and Megrenn. Jinzan Fehr is a strong magician, but not in the caliber of Rashan, and Rashan enjoys killing and devastating everything around him. So, it is no surprise that jinzan Fehr tries to enlist the help of more allies to turn the tide of the war. It appeared that he has succeeded when he starts learning the secrets of necromancy. In the meantime, all the various twinborn that we learned about in the previous books are playing out their various parts towards the book's conclusions.

So, where did the book go wrong in my opinion? Well, firstly, the various groupings in both worlds turn on themselves and treachery and double-crossing prevail. This leads to many battles between people who were allies before, which was dissatisfying. And then, there was so much of this, that during the middle 150 pages or so, I was completely lost as to who was fighting whom and for what reason. With all the various twinborns being represented in both worlds and everybody seemingly fighting everybody else, it was a chore to get through the meat of the book. Luckily, when the action finally shifts back to the Kyrus/Brannis pair and their battle against Rashan, that the book picks the pace back up and becomes more enjoyable.

The second problem was that the main theme of the whole series, being the battle between Kadris and Megrenn, is treated in almost a perfunctory manner. Rashan barely participates in the culminating battle with Jinzan Fehr. The whole sequence with Jinzan's son and their twinborns on the other world, is mentioned in passing, but becomes completely unimportant. And the Staff of Gellen - which is such an important artifact - gets destroyed with not so much as an explosion.

On the good side, the interactions between Rashan and Kyrus are entertaining and the final battle between the two of them is imaginative and fun to read. We finally learn about the immortals and why they play such a subsidiary role in the whole thing. We also get a conclusion to the situation between Kyrus and Juliana and Brannis and Soria - which while a bit pat, was at least reasonable. Celia and Abbiley also get what they want and unless the character is killed off during this book, then all the supporting characters get resolutions that seem in line with what one would have expected them to get.

I really enjoyed the whole series and wish the author much future success in his endeavors and I hope that his future works are as imaginative, inventive, and pleasurable to read as this one was.

Note - I was provided a free copy of the books in return for reviewing them.

What an epic end to the story of Kyrus and Brannis. A fantastic read, if you're on the fence about finishing this series, don't be. Just do it.
