As far as conclusions to series go, this is the most epic of epic closers. I felt that the first time I read it and I feel exactly the same way this time around.
It took me quite long to read, but that had more to do with my attention span (bad) than the book itself. Because although this is an amazing book, it takes some reading, especially the begining. This is probably because the writing still goes into unnecessary detail, but man, it is grand. In this book The Last Battle is fought and the scale and course of that battle is so well described you could practically draw it out. There are so many blazes of glory and epic fails, that once The Last Battle rages, it is hard to stop.
We get to spend time with all of our favourite characters and none are safe. They all fight for what they are worth. Will they all survive this final battle?
Just as a side note, there is a chapter called ‘The Last Battle’, which is over 200 pages long!
This series is worth it for this last book alone. The journey is hard, just like it is for our characters, but the pay-off is everything.
I will write up an overall review for the whole 14-book series at the beginning of May, because it deserves it.
6 out of 7 stars
