This review is from: Kushiel's Avatar (Hardcover)
This is the final book in the trilogy begun by Kushiel's Dart and Kushiel's chosen, set in a Europe which is recognisably that of the middle ages but which is based on divergent history, religion and politics. It reintroduces familiar characters and brings in new ones, developes religious themes more than the largely political ones of the previous books, and revolves around further perilous travels (to the Middle East and Africa) for the central couple of Phedre and Joscelin.
Kushiel's Avatar is well written and absorbing story telling: a fitting end to a sweeping saga. It doesn't quite transcend the boundaries of its genre, but I'm certainly going to be on the look out for future works by this author.
