5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy ending to a great trilogy., 19 May 2007
This review is from: Quicksilver Twilight: Book Three of the Quicksilver Trilogy (Paperback)
Quicksilver Twilight

Book three of the Quicksilver Trilogy

Stan J. Nicholls

Stan Nicholls is the author of the much acclaimed "Orcs" novels and the "Nightshade Chronicles". Stan has just finished writing his third fantasy series named "The Quicksilver Chronicles" of which "Quicksilver Twilight" is the third and concluding part.

The world of the Quicksilver Trilogy is full of magic. Magic acts like technology works in our modern world. The more money a person has, the more magic he can poses. But magic is also used by the controlling, and rivalling, empires to repress its civilians.

In this final part of the "Quicksilver Trilogy" all of the key-players of the previous two books come together on the Diamond Isle, home of the Resistance. Reeth Caldason, the main character of the book, is cursed with strange visions and immortality. As the only survivor of the massacre of his tribe he seeks revenge. Joining him in his fight with the rebels against the empris are Kutch Pirathon, sorcerer's apprentice and Serra Adracis, once captain of an elite fighting unit of one of the empires. Reeth's only hope to be cured is by finding the so called Source.

After the betrayal by one of the members of the resistance things are not going as planned. On the Diamond Island food supply is becoming a bigger problem every day. And not even half of the planned amount of rebels have made it to the island which will make its defends against the empires practically impossible. Besides that he seas around the isle are infested with pirates trying to take the isle for them self. And to make thins worse, Kinsel Rukanis has fallen into the hands of the cruel pirate Kingdom Vance.

Devlor Bastorran, Reeths arch-rival, is very eager to take revenge after being humiliated in a man to man fight against Reeth. After the murder of his uncle Ivak Devlor is in command of the paladin clans. To make sure his opponent won't get away this time he is planning a full scale war against the rebels by invading the Diamond Island. What Devlor doesn't know is that one of his well trusted companions is on the brink of betraying him.

Reeth is planning to leave the island to find a cure be freed of his visions. Trying to find the Source is his only hope of being cured and hopefully being able to turn the tide in the rebel's fight for freedom.

With finishing the Quicksilver Trilogy Stan Nicholls has created another fantasy masterpiece. Stan is able to keep up a good pace in his writing which keeps the writer in his grasp till the end of the story. A worthy ending to a great trilogy. With finishing this book Stan Nicholls has reached the same level of writing as one of the best in heroic fantasy, the great late David Gemmell.
