This review is from: Crown Of Stars: Crown of Stars: Book Seven (Paperback)
I have just realised that I have been reading this series of books for 8 years! And boy was it worth the wait...Frankly I usually get bored with these long, rambling, seemingly unending fantasy series' but not this one. Starting with King's Dragon in 1998 Elliott builds and sustains a hugely impressive net of interlocking grand themes which come to a final reckoning in this the final book - Crown of Stars. In a nutshell: Complex, fascinating characters; deftly described cultures and landscapes; religion in freefall; conspiracy and lots of really bloody warfare; sorcery on an epic scale; the most maddening central mystery rather like a chinese puzzle and finally a love story to die for. I don't usually write reviews but honestly more of you out there need to read these books - and hopefully inspire Kate to write more!
