Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Titan Of Twilight, by Troy Denning, is Book 3 in The Twilight Giants Trilogy set in the Forgotten Realms universe. The book concludes the story from the previous two novels, The Ogre's Pact (Forgotten Realms: The Twilight Giants) and The Giant Among Us (Forgotten Realms: The Twilight Giants). As a result of the previous novels, Queen Brianna of Hartwick is now pregnant but Tavis Burden is not completely convinced that the baby is his. Added to this there is a dark prophesy that the child will unleash a cataclysmic war and the giant-kin, including Tavis' own race, are trying to kill the child and when events reach their climax, Lanaxis, the Titan of Twilight himself, even takes a personal involvement in the events.

Whilst the book is well written, it does not quite reach the heights of the previous two books in the trilogy, and the stereotypical and predictable character behaviour and actions are more noticeable than ever. However, the momentous events of this novel make up to a certain extent for this failing. The action sequences continue to be well written and excellently grasp the size difference between combatants.

Overall, this is quite a good final book to the trilogy that should appeal to most Forgotten Realms fan and anyone who enjoyed the previous two books in the trilogy.

The story line was kinda predictable, and this made reading it a bit boring.

You could already tell, how it would end, not much new exciting twists or turns in the book.

A Fantastic Finale to a Great Trilogy 28 Dec 2012
By W. J. Molinar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Flat out wrong. That's how I would describe the other reviews. I cant understand it. This is a great book! The stakes are high in this series and it's built and built into a brutal finale where Denning pulls out all the stops and leaves nothing on the table. Clichéd, but true. Characters die, they change in unexpected ways and again, this sense of building tension, rising stakes, is so powerful and meaningful, I wonder what book the other reviewers here have read. I'll keep the rest simple and bullet point great scenes I loved:

-the firbolgs coming to "save" Brianna and her baby, the fire giants strolling up the hill and attacking was gnarly and I loved the giants and 'kin clashing; crazy and brutal
-the storm giants! another awesome giant on giant clash with the verbeegs, formorians and firbolgs getting annihilated by the largest and most powerful of all giants, save the purple cloaked Titan
-Tavis learning how to enlarge himself, finally becoming a real firbolg in his mind
-the Titan resurrecting the fallen giant kings; epic to say the least
-Sky Cleaver is an awesome weapon and once Tavis wields it, it is on!

I love that Denning took the time to make it clear that magic has its price to pay, something many fantasy authors/series fail to realize (here's looking at you, Harry Potter). Tavis knows being healed again will weaken his system to the point where he'll never be the same and that Sky Cleaver will make him a living ghost but he loves Brianna too much and his sense of duty is too great for him to give up. He sacrifices himself to save his child, even though he believes it may not be his, and his wife. That's beautiful.

Poor 4 Dec 2005
By Lorene Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been readin FR since I was 13, 34 now. This is by far one of the worst I have read. Choppy plot, doesn't entrench you into imagination, overall, it was tough to keep my interst but I refuse to leave books left undone once started. Lacked intrique. I have liked most of Dennings work, but am sorry I shelled out the cash for this one.

Not as bad as these reviews show 10 Aug 2010
By J. Helmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I laughed when I read the reviews...how can I take seriously a review from a customer when so many words are spelled incorrectly...they don't actually know the character names (it's Tavis...not Travis). This series is not the deepest or most intricate plot in the FR series of books, but it's a fun, quick read. The characters are enjoyable and that's all it really needs to be.

Silly ending to a possible decent series 30 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Save yourself the time and skip this realms series. The first book was decent, but the second and third were just plain waste of paper. I like the main characters, but a good story to back them up. Travis, the ranger, provides a great hero, but the bad guys/fight scences were stupid. The Netheril trilogy was ten times better so do not lose the realms faith.
