That said this was a fitting end to the series.
Overall... if you liked 'Library of the Dead' (AKA 'The Seventh Son') and 'The Book of Souls' then you will like this too.
Well it can be difficult with such reviews to write anything very meaningful without giving the plot or the ending away and I won't try. I will say the book lacks pace in early and mid-book areas but makes up for that with an exciting (though unlikely) final quarter. However regarding any loose ends thrown in as a hook for publishers or in the event that his creative talents run out of steam with new projects, I can only say - this book should have nailed it down with a stake through its heart and no doubts about whether we are witnessing the literary equivalent of Rocky The Librarian. Stay away from the temptation, Glenn. If you are attached to the characters send them off to Timbuktu to find the missing Monocle of the Maharajah of Mesopotamia and I'll support you. Drag out a Library book four and I won't.
What a let down, it is quickly established that there is to be catastrophy. Instead we are taken on a tedious tale of the coming about of the 2nd library and the battle to take control of it.
Boring, boring, boring. Its a replay of part 2 and a complete con. Sadly I paid well over the odds for this book but shall have to put it down to experience.
It does appear set up at the end for part 4 but if the last few lines were designed to make you think ' NO WAY' they actually made me think no way. End of the line for me. Weak effort, a trick missed and a total let down.
But don't let this be a reason to just leave this novel in the bookshops and to opt for another. It is quite well written, it has a lot of in-depth and the pace is satisfying. Will Piper is a fine caracter, just as the members of his family. It was just the conclusion of the story that let me a bit down.
