4.0 out of 5 stars Brutality, Action, and Mystery, 6 Feb 2005
This review is from: The Rose of the World: Book Three of Fool's Gold (Hardcover)
This book was jam packed with mystery and lots of violence. Lots of main characters and harmless characters were brutally murdered in this final book in the Fool's Gold Trilogy. It definately kept me reading the whole time, but many times I was disgusted by the grusome and evil characters that could kill off babies and women the way they did. Yet, at the end of the book, the chaos is justified when it is clear that the God's are needed for the order to redevelop. Although, while many questions were answered in the last 20 pages of the book, I was left questioning a lot of things, and a lot of relationships between characters were left unresolved. I am very well aware that books are meant to leave you hanging and make an ending in your mind. But I felt as if the last book in the trilogy, was indeed not the last book. I would be satisfied if there was another maybe 100 pages in this book, or even short book that went into explaining a little more of the finale. So, while I loved reading the book the whole way through, with laughter, disgust, excitement, terror, sadness, etc., I slammed my head aganst the couch at the end of the book b/c I couldn't believe that the end was trully the end. I scanned the last 5 blank pages of the book in hopes to find a little note of some other book that was suppsed to be published at a later date, but all the pages were blank. Almost telling the reader, to make up whatever ending they wished.
