Bleaker but no less brilliant,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Endless Knot (Song of Albion) (Paperback)This one gets so bleak at times that you worry about any sort of 'happy' ending. Set away from the world we have come to know and love - in a distant land not as beautiful, blessed nor enchanting. This is a story of a chase and a discovery. It brngs to a conclusion a wonderfully written and enchanting trilogy in a more dark and brooding manner.
At first I wasn't too keen on the way I could see the story going, but at the end and thinking back accross the fabric of the story one has to see the conclusion as breathtaking and satisfying. Once again I find it hard to say much more without giving away too much. Suffice to say that all the strands and journeys of the lives lived through the enchanted pages of this book come to a stark and powerful conclusion.
There is sadness, there is surprise, there is joy. There is honour and glory, life and death. There is brilliant storytelling.
Recommended for anyone who love good storytelling & characterisation. Intelligent prose and page turning tension.
Very much recommended.
