With the monumental defeats at the hands of the more powerful Black Road armies, the True Bloods are in trouble. Adding to their seemingly inevitable annihilation is the alliance collapsed as each Blood Line chooses to save itself. At the same time Aeglyss' mental state seems increasingly deranged. Blood Thane Orisian realistically understands what he and his people face as he has few shieldmen warriors left with his line nearing extinction. While his sister Anyara remains with Aewult the Bloodheir of the Haig Blood who are also in trouble, Orisian travels with Ess'yr the Fox Kyrinin and her brother. He knows he is falling in love with Ess'yr, but must defeat Aeglyss. At the same time, Kanin the Horin-Gyre Thane raises a heretical force of half-breed soldiers to fight Aeglyss. The third and final Godless World epic fantasy is a great ending to an overall terrific saga. The story line is fast-paced along several well written fault lines that ultimately converge in an anticipated epic center confrontation. However, the key to this entire trilogy is the cast. No one is a John Wayne like hero as everyone has prejudice and a willingness to sacrifice those they consider lesser. The battles are graphic and the other scenes vivid as history on this world seem destined to repeat itself with the flow of the True Bloods almost defiantly heading to extinction. With the exception of needing a glossary handy, Brian Ruckley completes his chronicle with a wonderful winner. Harriet Klausner

I'll admitt at first i was a little timid to read the last book in this trilogy. The first 2 books started off slow (though at times my pulse raced)..I just didnt want to struggle toward the end. Needless to say, I was very surprized with "The Fall of Thanes" It had everything i was craving and everything that was missing from the first 2 books. This was by far the best book in the trilogy. Aeglyss will have you yelling for the hangmans noose..Orissian will have you stand up and cheering...Even Anyara's life becomes interesting...All the characters come out and into play in a dramatic ending....If you can get past the slowness of the first 2 books and make your way to this one...You will not be dissapointed and will say "It was well worth it"

I am totlly lost; from the very beginning. I think I will need to re-read #2. Mr. Rucklyey waited too long to write this 3rd book in his series. I have only just finushed th first three chapters and I am still lost. I recommend you read Bloodheir before purchasing this book, as you will most assuredly have the same challenges that I have just mentioned

At the end of the third book I cried...I actually cried! Never in my life has a book brought forth tears to my eyes before. This was a heartbreaking, gut wrenching story. I thought I new what was happening, I always know what's happening, but Brian Ruckley kept me in the dark the whole time. And don't berate me, I know the title of this book speaks a thousand words, but for me you see...books are an easy read, not merely to be able to sit down and read words, but to guess the outcome before it happens. In some respect, books can be very predictable. However, The Godless World Trilogy changed that for me. There were many, many times that I thought I knew what waited ahead for me in the pages to come only to have that rug pulled right out from underneath me. It was wonderful! The Godless World Trilogy is a fantastic read. This is a keeper for my bookshelf and it begs to be read again.
