4.0 out of 5 stars Final book to a great trilogy, 29 Dec 2003
This review is from: Sacred Fire: 3 (Kingpriest Trilogy) (Mass Market Paperback)
Although not as good as the first two books, since we know what is going to happen and most of the material was covered in the Legends, this book is still a great read. It ties up all that has happened in the previous books and describes the Cataclysm well- both the ground-shaking catastrophe and the general feeling of despair and loneliness of post-Cataclysmic Krynn. The book gives a short epilogue in 3 A.C and ends on a down note that defines the Age of Despair.
The story allows us to see what the Kingpriest has been up to in ten years or so from the second book by following the return of self-imposed exile Cathan, who returns to Istar to find slave markets, persecution of worshippers of gray (neutral) gods (this began in the second book remember) and oppression of even good gods! you'll see what i mean.
Fistandantilus is there from the beginning and the timeline that Chris Pierson follows is the Fistandantilus-Pheragus-Denubis one (rather than the Raistlin-Caramon-Chrysania, although there is a slight hats off to Weis and Hickman with the Kingpriest noticing some movement behind a curtain as he is about to challenge the gods (i.e., Tasselhoff).
A great moment is where Beldinas uses his clerical powers to force Paladine to kneel before him- and almost succeeds!!
The biggest surprise is that who you thought was the Lightbringer, isn't!!!!
If its not Beldinas then you should know who it is.
The Bringer of Light is not the healing touch of Beldinas, but the Bringer of the Word of Paladine
think Disks of Mishakal, Xak Tsaroth....
We also see how Bupu's gift to Raistlin ( spellbook) gets where its supppose to be.
This trilogy has been one of the best yet in DragonLance and Chris Pierson's attention to the detail of the Chronicles and Legends gives a feeling of continuity and a complete saga with no conflicting ideas from the different authors.
