Slow to start, but great ending.,

This review is from: The Devil's Looking-Glass: The Sword of Albion Trilogy Book 3 (Sword of Albion 3) (Paperback)
Considering this is the third book in the trilogy, I'd expected the action to start straight away. Instead, the plot is somewhat stilted at the beginning, I felt like I had to drag myself through the first 70 pages or so (hence the 4 stars).
However, after that, the book was great. Having thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the series I wasn't let down. It was a good mix of otherworld and historical action, which Chadbourn manages to weave together seamlessly. The twists in the latter half of the book were excellent (I don't want to give them away, but they probably didn't do my blood pressure any favours), and the only disappointment I felt was at the end, when there wasn't any more.
I also have to say I completely loved the development of the relationship between Launceston and Carpenter, so perfectly written between two such flawed characters, who ended up like brothers in the end - watching those two interact was one of the highlights of the book. Although I would say the first book is the best, the whole trilogy is a good read, and definitely worth your time. Here's hoping this isn't the last we've seen of Will Swyfte.
