Book Description

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

From the Back Cover

The enthralling new adventure in the spellbinding story that began with The Fifth Sorceress… Tristan and his sister Shailiha are the Chosen Ones, long prophesied to unite the opposing magics of the dark Vagaries and the benign Vigors. The destruction of the Gates of Dawn has given the ravaged kingdom of Eutracia the chance to heal – and the Chosen Ones the opportunity to fulfil their destiny. But Fate would have it otherwise. For there is, it seems, another who unwittingly possesses magic in his blood – a magic that, in the wrong hands, could unleash unspeakable evil. It is imperative that the Chosen Ones find this unsuspecting soul before it is too late. And indeed, they are not alone in searching. Krassus, servant of the Vagaries, has at his command a fleet of demonic slavers that scours Eutracia, seizing both men and women, bringing them to the Citadel, an island fortress of living nightmares. Aided by Tyranny, a pirate as fierce as she is beautiful, Tristan and his sister hunt down the vile slavers’ ships. They must 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, drawing on the mysterious Scrolls of the Ancients, transform him into an instrument of evil the like of which the world has never known…and will not long survive. ‘Really fabulous…The Chronicles of Blood and Stone is an excellent adventure in High Fantasy’SF Site

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.
