The end of the Finders Stone trilogy, the story comes full circle as Alias's "Father" is put on Trial for a second time concerning 200 year-old charges. We meet Dragonbait's people properly in this book as the arrive in Faerun and Akabar returns as well, determined to finish a battle started in the first book. Olive the Halfling, who was developed as a major character in the second book in the trilogy, returns as well and all of them get tangled up in a story involving God's, rogue Mages and Warriors running amok across Dimensions. Elminster puts in a brief appearance but disappears almost as quickly in a novel fashion. The inhabitants of Shadowdale also play their part, although the Harpers might just be doing more harm than good this time around...

A part of this story I particularly enjoyed is the development of some of Alia's "Sister's" as characters, since she was stated to have twelve who her Creators had not "activated" in the first book. One is dead, one has ended up as part of the Wyvernspur family through Giogi Wyvernspur, four more are accounted for here including the first Alias has physically met. Her Sisters are Mages, Priests, Thieves, Scholars and Warriors-and those are just the one's we know about.

To be honest, since Alias is a magical Construct and so are her Sisters, who are more than once stated to be Immortal, I always wonder what happened to all of them? Further stories could have been written focusing on Alias and her supporting cast or any of her Sisters and a new set of characters. In theory, any or all of them could even still be around after the Spellplague, but that's, perhaps, wishful thinking?
