    An amazing conclusion to The Troy Game series.  It had me on the edge of my seat almost the entire time and ready to scream in anticipation when the ending turned back and forth so many times I felt like I was in a roller coaster (which I'm sure was the intended effect).  All the characters are back, including some we hadn't seen since they appeared the first time.  The Troy Game is bound and determined to be completed in this lifetime and is willing to do anything to anyone to get it done.




    Brutus and Cornelia reborn are in the lead again, but they have changed so much you could hardly recognize them.  I don't know how Douglass could have ended the series any better.

    A+!!

    A thoroughly satisfying ending to an unforgettable series. When the climax started to build, I was absolutely hooked. Questions and other thoughts raced through my mind: 'It all seems so impossible. Can they do it? How will they do it? Will she die? How will it end?' The last in a four-part series where I was truly caught up in the hopes, joys, sorrows, and other emotions experienced by all characters, I came to befriend and sympathize with them all. This final book was a treasure trove of surprises for every character and revelations like nothing I expected, and when it ended, it was both satisfying and bittersweet a rarity in my personal experience.

    A Good tear-jerker

    I couldn't wait to read this book (and screamed aloud in happiness when I found it in a small local bookstore, the store has since gotten used to my screams of happiness)and found that I loved the tale. The very ending did leave a cliff-hanger, though you can guess the rest and I wish she had elaborated a tad more, but overall it was another great book.

    Excellent conclusion to the Troy Game Saga

    The Troy Game, a work of sorcery that is supposed to protect a city, has taken on a life of its own in the form of a woman known as Catling. She wants to complete the game and now that the creator Major Jack Skelton, who has been reincarnated through several lifetimes, has returned to London that can now happen. Jack, once known as Brutus and who saw Troy fall, knows that if he finishes the game, The Land of Faerie and Great Britain will be under her evil rule. --- Other people reincarnated in this lifetime (the fall of 1939) that are part of the game include Jack¿s former wife Norah and his one-time enemy Asterion the Minotaur now known as Weyland Orr. While Jack searches for a weakness in the game he notices a shadow hanging over London¿s skies that only Norah and Waylin¿s daughter Grace can also see. Jack finds himself very attracted to Grace in a way he never was with her mother but Catling has puts a hex onGrace causing her great pain at certain intervals to insure they will complete the Game. The shadow represents a new player in the land, one that Grace knows intimately but whose identity will shock her and Jack as neither is sure of its true motives. If they guess wrong, the lands of two realms are doomed. --- In the conclusion to the Troy Game Saga, Sara Douglass ties up all the loose ends, and gives readers a satisfying conclusion to one of the best historical fantasy sagas to come along in ages. Brutus aka Jack is finally at piece after almost four millennia of turmoil and the audience will like the man he has become. Great characterizations, a sense of continuity from the other three books in this series and a great storyline make DRUID¿S SWORD worthy of a place on the best seller list. --- Harriet Klausner
