If you have traveled with the whole crew, you have the character you most identify with already in mind. Their strengths and weakness’, loves and hates are pretty clearly defined for you already. If that is the case, you believe you can skip the prologue. I would recommend not skipping it. Even if you have read all the previous books there might be some connections you have missed. After all this is an epic that starts around 2500 BC and goes up to our present day and goes from our world to the lands of Summer and the world of the dead. Just a lot to try to keep up with. Luckily for us, Mark Chadbourn does an excellent job as guide for the entire trip. Like with life, even with all the challenges (both every day and heroic) that our adventurers face it turns out that even the small decisions have consequences, many of which are unforeseen (even if done with the best of intentions). In the end, it is a normal bloke to borrow a phrase) that makes the difference. This book is an excellent end to the series and continues to play with the timeless themes and philosophical questions. I came away feeling a little sad, as though I had been through a catharsis and also feeling very philosophical. © Night Owl ReviewsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
