This series is very well written. I enjoyed it very much. The series hasn't been finished yet and it has been 3 years since the last book has been published don't know if it will be completed. I am looking forward to the ending regardless of how long it takes.

Having just finished this, the fourth book in the series, I am again impressed with how much a good editor could have improved--and shortened--Newcomb's work. How many times does the reader need to be told Tristan has the most endowed blood or Faegan has total recall, etc. Again and again, the same sentences are used to describe/explain something. I kept wanting to say, 'Just get on with it!' In conclusion, I'd just say the series has reached the point where 1) I no longer care about characters, 2) the repetitive events/descriptions are tiring and 3) I will not bother with the next book, fantasy nut that I am.

This volume once again shows why Robert Newcombe is one of the best. As a solid Wheel of Time fan, I am constantly searching for that next new thing that will equal it. Robert Newcombe, while not surpassing that epic series,certainly makes a admirable attempt to do so!!

Robert Newcomb has once again thrown his characters into another action packed journey from the first pages of his book. The next installment of his books about Tristan, Shailiha, and the rest of the gang not only has the return of some previous enemies, but also throws some new threats into the story- not the least of which being that the Orb of the Vigors was injured in Tristan's fight with Wulfgar and is destroying parts of the countryside. New allies are also introduced as Tristan, Wigg, and Celeste start searching for the way to change Tristan's azure blood back to red, for until his blood reverts to its original form Tristan cannot be trained in the craft and cannot fix the Orb of the Vigors. It soon becomes a life and death situation, and before the end of the book some of the characters will have gone down the path to the Afterlife. If you enjoyed reading the Chronicles of Blood and Stone, this next installment in Tristan and Shailiha's story is something you won't want to miss!

In Eutracia, the final skirmish OF THE SCROLLS OF THE ANCIENTS ended with the good Tristan defeating his evil half-brother Wulfgar at least everyone (including readers) thought that was the war to end all wars. However, instead as a bi-product of the heroic battle, the spring of good magic, the Orb of Vigors, was ripped open. Now unchecked magical energy is dripping everywhere, as the orb falls from the sky ravaging anything that crosses its path. --- Only Prince Tristan can mend the Orb and stop pandemic destruction from occurring. However, for Tristan to fulfill the quest, his blood tendencies must be altered by the First Wizard Wigg. A mistake would kill Tristan and subsequently all of Eutracia. However, Wulfgar thought dead (once again by all) returns as Enseterat who is abetted by the Heretics of the Guild applies the Scroll of Vagaries to cause havoc in his effort to enact revenge on those who defeated him while he attempts to conquerg the world. --- Most fans of the first trilogy (see Chronicles of Blood and Stone) will enjoy the return to the realm with the initial tale in the Destinies of Moon and Stone three-peat. The story line is action-packed moving forward at a fast pace as is usual in a Robert Newcomb fantasy. Tristan continues to be a great likable champion and his allies are strong amiable supporters of him. On the other hand the return of Wulfgar seems wrong, magical blood aside, and he feels less dimensional than in his previous escapades. Though somewhat a rehash, the Blood and Stone crowd will find this opening gamut quite appealing. --- Harriet Klausner
