    I was totally engrossed in this story and stayed up many nights

    I was totally engrossed in this story and stayed up many nights to read this trilogy, I even bought 2 more of your books in anticipation of the great reads they were so far.. then I came to the end. I thought you did such a disservice to this trilogy to end it this way that I have lost any desire I have had to read more of your books.

    Such a poor finish

    The first two books in this series were compelling. Not the kind of life-changing 'Dear god, how did I live before I read this' type, but the 'This is interesting. I bet this is going to happen next' type. In fact, down to the last few chapters, this one was even better. And then those last twenty pages. I'm sorry, but I was furious with Canavan for resorting to such a bad-soap-opera plot twist. And it ruined the series for me. I would recommend these books--hesitantly. In fact, if you don't read the last twenty pages and invent your own ending, this could be a really great series. If you read hers, you'll end up snarling.

    Okay...

    I have to say that I was disappointed in this conclusion to the trilogy. I read Magician's Guild and The Novice and was looking for a resounding finish. This much anticipated final chapter left much to be desired. Don't get me wrong, I love a good fantasy read but this one did not measure up to my hopes. I would still read it but some of the plotting was not perfectly tied up in the end. I was happy that Sonea reached an understanding with the High Lord but...I just did not like that understanding.
