This book was awesome! It moves at a great pace and J. Thorn does a fantastic job of tying up all the loose ends from the previous books.
I love books that convey certain emotions and force you to ask questions about life, and the entire series does that. Especially "Corrosion". As J. says in his bio, "reading dark fiction can be healing" and I totally agree. This book will have you questions about life and death but also bring a sort of comfort to the subject in a weird way.
Loved it! Sad to see the story end.
Addendum: I finished the book. It is NOT a typical horror fantasy.Yeah, it's dark and suspenseful,
but there's a coherent philosophical subtext. I look forward to reading more of this author's work.
Samuel and Lindsay must navigate through a decayed city while trying to outrun the cloud of the reversion in the hopes of being released from the great cycle and finally finding peace. Will they reach the peak? Can they escape the army of the undead? Who will win the final battle?
Portal Arcane III was a gripping read and a great end to the trilogy. Thank you, Mr. Thorn for three fascinating reads. These will stay with me for a very long time and keep me wondering about what may await us after we die.
If you're considering this series, do yourself a favour and read all three books. If you enjoy dark fantasy horror you’re in for a treat!
Honestly I found this to be the weakest of the three books in the series. The two newest characters, though they were mentioned briefly in one of the earlier books, felt a little one dimensional. To me they didn't add to the story. They only served to provide a 'challenge' to the returning characters. To further diminish their importance, the challenges seemed to be nothing more than a minor hiccup. The story fell into a recurring set of main characters are challenged, make characters give a cursory attempt at talking their way through the challenge, and then main characters seem to just 'snap their fingers' and the challenge has been averted.
Maybe it would have worked if the book had been longer, with much more detail, but to me it felt like the characters were never really in danger of failing.
A minor problem, though to me it is a big pet peeve, the author several times referred to characters "Jack and Alex" and how they were relating to each other. In multiple instances he would be saying how one viewed the other, but instead of this he would say 'Alex thought Alex was wrong'. That is not a direct quote, I only include it to show how the character names were mixed up.
I also found the epilogue to be somewhat of a let down. It just felt wrong in terms of how those characters should be renewed.
I would say that fans of J. Thorn's stories should enjoy reading this book. I just think the earlier stories were better.
