Summary: The finale to the greatest set of books ever written!
No matter your taste in books, this is definitely a must read, even if you have never read any other books by the author. He draws to close events that happened in The Keep, Reborn and Reprisal, and introduces old favourties from The Tomb and The Touch.
This is the grand finale to the ultimate battle of good versus evil, with the fate of humanity at hand.
Wilson writes through the perspective of his characters, showing their perspectives, and how events affect them, good or bad. You really get to know the characters, and can immediately empathise with them, and their challenging plight in trying to stop the ultimate bad guy!
I read this first, not realising that it was the last in a series of 6 books. It did not detract from the story, but made me want more. I've since become a huge fan.
If you like horror, fantasy and realism (the events, no matter how fantastic, are written in such a way, that you will think that they are actually happening); a gripping story and deep, varied characters, this is the book for you. Go now, read it!
