With Beyond the Realm of Night, Jane Dougherty has created a fitting end to an epic trilogy. Picking up directly from where The Subtle Fiend left off, we follow Deborah as she comes to terms with her role to confront Abaddon and his evil forces and protect the garden, the tree of life, and the future of their world.

But as the two great forces get set for their final confrontation, it is the human stories that take centre stage. Over the course of the previous two books we have been introduced to a host of characters: citizens of providence, members of the Danann, the Fianna; along with Abaddon's evil minions; and it's now that all their interactions, their hopes and dreams, get played out.

This breadth of scope and complexity is the book's, and the trilogy's, great strength, but it's also a weakness. With so many plot strands being pulled together, as often happens in these situations I found myself caring less as to what was happening in some of the sub-plots, especially involving the Fianna, which while interesting I felt they didn't necessarily move the story forward.

That said, this is a minor quibble on what is an otherwise enthralling trilogy. As the book heads towards its denouement, Dougherty expertly draws all these threads together into a satisfying conclusion, without giving in to the temptation of they all live happily ever after. This is especially true for Deborah's story. While it would have been easy to have transformed Deborah into a one-dimensional beacon of good, Dougherty kept her characterisation as a complex, feisty and sometimes difficult person all the way to the end, and for that she should be applauded. While during the final stages of the book, heroes and villains emerge, the majority of players are neither or both, which is how it should be.

Overall, I would recommend this trilogy to anybody with a love of epic fantasy with substance.

The final book in The Green Woman Trilogy, Beyond the Realm of Night, brings war and rescue, heroes and villains, light and darkness into violent confrontation. Yet nothing is quite what it seems; strangely, not everyone wants to be saved; winning the battle is not the same as winning the war; shaking off the chains of one suffocating regime paves the way for another to take root; being re-united with her mother brings Deborah terrible loss. The Green Woman has achieved her destiny and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Dougherty brings her story to a close with unique flair and style, but it just might not be the happy ever after ending some would hope for…

In creating this dark, disturbing, dystopian masterpiece, Jane Dougherty has shown she can compete with the best. Her writing is considered, powerful, and almost poetic in style. Her world building is second to none, and her characters conflicted and convincing. But for me, the most entrancing aspect of the series is the melding of many world mythologies into the crafting of one cohesive new legend; Lugh, Fionn mac Cumhall and Oscar stand shoulder to shoulder with Osiris and Isis; there are Etruscans, Amazons and Norsemen; angels and demons rule the skies, and centaurs gallop across the earth’s surface… it shouldn’t work, but it so does!

An astonishing and bravura conclusion to the Green Woman Trilogy. Once again Jane Dougherty presents us with a story that cleverly transcends the narrow constraints of genre/YA fiction with a brutal and dystopian fantasy. In the last book of the series Deborah is reunited with her mother, an emotionally ambiguous moment in which the traumatised girl struggles to find a place among the forces of good after her nightmare odyssey through the wasteland, pursued by the minions of the archdemon Abaddon. At the same time the cruel authoritarian city Providence slips further into chaos as the evil hordes start to infiltrate. What is particularly impressive is the way the writer manages to absorb a dizzying range of myths and legendary characters into the narrative without once losing control of a very tightly plotted and intelligent story. I've said this before but the novel, and the trilogy as a whole, is very reminiscent of Moorcock's vast baroque canvases at their best. My only niggle would be that I would have liked to have lingered a little more on the detail of this fascinating world, but then perhaps that would have diminished its wonderful nightmarish quality. This series is definitely worth a read and a breath of fresh air amid the stale rehash of much contemporary fantasy. I hope we see more similar work from Jane Dougherty soon.

In the final novel in The Green Woman series, Deborah is finally reunited with her mother, but their meeting is bittersweet. Deborah longs to relinquish her burdens, but her struggles have only begun. Rachel is failing and the memories must be passed on to Deborah. As the Garden comes to life, an epic battle between good and evil is brewing. Only through love and sacrifice can the balance be restored.

In a society where free-thinking is forbidden and where women are second-class citizens, how can Deborah expect anyone to follow her? Providence is collapsing from the inside out, but old habits die hard and some would rather cling to fear and the Wise God than embrace a new way of life. Deborah, broken and traumatized from her many hardships, must complete the Green Woman's work and confront Abaddon before he plunges the world into even greater darkness.

Deborah has emerged as a heroine of the bravest sort. Sometimes flawed and arrogant, Deborah has not always been likable, but in Beyond the Realm of Night, we're introduced to her vulnerabilities and get to know Deborah on an entirely different level. The heroes and heroines in this book are many, and come from a variety of backgrounds. Men who must accept a new way of thinking. Mothers who risk everything to save not only their own children, but any child who needs help. Children who show incredible bravery in the face of death, even risking their lives to save their friends. This is a novel that proves that standing up to evil does not always mean lifting a sword and riding into battle. Evil must be fought at a fundamental level and the greatest weapon is love.

Beyond the Realm of Night is an epic finish to an epic trilogy. This series is outstanding and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

HASH(0x9b320abc) out of 5 stars Dramatic and Emotional Series Conclusion! 7 Nov. 2014
By Susan P. Sipal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jane Dougherty is one of my favorite authors and definitely one to watch out for. She has the depth of imagination to envision a fantastical new world and the skill to bring it breathtakingly to life. I'd been waiting for this last book of The Green Woman trilogy and was not disappointed.

In Beyond the Realm of Night, Deborah finally joins with her mother just in time to take up her mission of remembering the world as it once was back into life. But there is no time to waste as Abaddon and his forces seek to silence Deborah's gift in order to keep the savaged earth bound in death and decay. Dougherty skillfully covers all sides of this epic battle and keeps the reader on edge as to how each important skirmish will play out. Knowing this author is not afraid to confront darkness in all its terrible deformities, I found myself holding my breath as to whether Deborah and her supporters would reach Providence in time, whether Hera would escape being offered up as sacrifice, and whether Maeve would be reunited with her family while any of them still lived.

Despite the darkness of the story, Dougherty always weaves in hope with the greening of the world and the growing strength of her characters. Her talent is bone-deep, and I'm confident we can expect great things from her. I highly recommend this story and the whole series!

HASH(0x9b20045c) out of 5 stars Kitty Muse Book Reviews 8 Sept. 2014
By Kitty - Published on Amazon.com

The armies have amassed. The heroes of memory have joined the battle against Abaddon and his demons, both fighting for possession of Providence. It would seem obvious which way the citizens would sway, once the gates were opened. After all, they’d seen the menace, witnessed the evil.

But the leader of their salvation is…a mere girl? A female?

The lessons of the “Wise God” run deep and strong, and the idea of a simple “swoop-and-save” becomes irrelevant in the face of obstinacy.

This is not, however, the biggest obstacle Deborah faces. The hardest lessons to learn, and the biggest evils to conquer, originate within herself.

Jealousy, bitterness, fear of failure–these must be conquered before Deborah can lead her army to victory.

Abaddon knows this–and exploits it as much as he can…

I have been waiting to get my hands on this book ever since reading “The Subtle Fiend”, the second story in the “Green Woman” series. Throughout the first and second books, and ancillary short stories profiling the lives and fates of individuals in Providence, the author has drawn her readers into a fantastic story, one that clashes the drear bland existence of a tyrannical government with a colorful, exciting world that is mere myth to those who plod along in the greyness of survival.

I liken this last offering to being cast adrift on a sea of evil. Together with those populating the adventures Ms. Dougherty has given us, we ride the waves of victory and wallow in the troughs of despair. On and on through the night, we catch glimpses of the shining goal that is the Garden; the Earth returned to its virgin green innocence.

But the journey is hard and frustrating; we see the shore, and then it is taken from us.

Eventually, our boat touches that land, and we escape to terra firma, joyful in the knowledge of the safety of that brave new land.

However—a word of warning to those who dare to venture too close to those dark waters again: the tide is quick and treacherous…

HASH(0x9b324018) out of 5 stars Mesmerizing 30 July 2015
By Peejay - Published on Amazon.com

Deborah found her mother and sister. But she also found her destiny. She must return to Providence to free the people who have been used as slaves. She must become the green woman, mother of the earth.

Jonas is gone, but his spirit lives on, as long as she remembers him. He helps her to move forward. Warrior come from all realms to aid the green woman in her quest to defeat Abaddon.

Her a and Deborah's father have made a stand and sides have been drawn. Many will perish as the battle of good versus evil is fought. But who will be victorious? The book answers those questions. There is a fine line between love and hate, good and evil. This book makes you think of many possibilities.

It is a fitting ending as the powers are transferred from one generation to the next. The story is fascinating. Hopefully, there will be another book.

HASH(0x9b200774) out of 5 stars Another unforgettable tale from the pen of Jane Dougherty. 11 Sept. 2014
By G. Polley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whew, this is an unforgettable page-turner, the kind of book that leaves me wishing there will be more. Like life itself, the story never really ends. If the author doesn't write another tale about Deborah and the others, then someone who reads this marvelous tale will, because that's what happens to unforgettable tales. Poignant and romantic, this is one of the best. Jane Dougherty is clearly a writer to watch.
