Overview

At long last, the conclusion to Glen Cook's Dread Empire saga has arrived! King Bragi Ragnarson is a prisoner, shamed, nameless, and held captive by Lord Shih-kaa and the Empress Mist at the heart of the Dread Empire.

Far away in Kavelin, Bragia's queen and what remains of his army seek to find and free their king, hampered by the loss or desertion of their best and brightest warriors. Kavelina's spymaster, Michael Trebilcock, is missing in action, as is loyal soldier Aral Dantice. Meanwhile, Dane, Duke of Greyfells, seeks to seize the rule of Kavelin and place the kingdom in his pocket, beginning a new line of succession through Bragia's queen, Dane's cousin Inger. And in the highest peaks of the Dragona's Teeth, in the ancient castle Fangdred, the sorcerer called Varthlokkur uses his arts to spy on the world at large, observing the puppet strings that control kings and empires alike, waiting… For the time of the wrath of kings is almost at hand, and vengeance lies along a path to coldness of heart.

This is a nice addition to the Dread Empire series. This is book 8. Glen involved the existing characters well and drew the series to a close, though there could be another story. Another new book is An Empire Unacquainted With Defeat, which collects the Dread Empire short stories.

Not bad for the most part, but, the end was quite abrupt. Kind of like a high school term paper that reached the required number of words and the author decided, "eh, good enough". Left a lot of loose ends. Would be ok if there was another sequel to finish it off, but my understanding is that this is the end of the series. Too bad.

Why would one want to read a trilogy when nook does not provide all the books? Nook only has the first and third books. Someone is asleep at the switch. :-(
