Overview

An inventive and action-packed mix of fantasy, science fiction, and mythology, all in a realistic contemporary setting.
 
Rowan has won a battle, but not the war. With proper allies, Rowan’s armies could storm the demon stronghold, capture its ruler, and end the reign of demonkind. But while nations clash, a greater struggle lies elsewhere. In his desperate pursuit of Astaroth, Elias Bram scours the world for clues to the fiend’s true origins, identity, and purpose. His horrifying discoveries hint that not only is humanity at risk, but the earth itself. Its fate may depend upon three children. With their unmatchable skills, it’s up to Max McDaniels, David Menlo, and little Mina to tip the balance!
In the Tapestry’s final volume, Henry H. Neff concludes an unforgettable series in which magic can live, gods can die, and the highest stakes require the greatest sacrifice.

This book is an intense and satisfying end to an epic series that made me cry at times and laugh out loud, which only one previous book ever made me do. I hope that more people discover The Tapestry series because it is a modern classic, like Lord of the Rings, and deserves a place on every book lover's shelf. The fact that Henry Neff writes AND illustrates the series makes him as rare and special as Max McDaniels, his title character. Mr. Neff, please write another series. Your fans are ready for more.

The Tapestry is an amazing series. When you think it just can't get any better, it does. Each book is like a fabulous meal. You feel delighted and fulfilled--then you move on to a meal that's even more fabulous. The story gets bigger and bigger and the characters grow apace. The reader grows with them--meeting ever greater challenges on the outside--of plot, adventure, power and Powers--but the internal growth is what truly distinguishes this series. Max, David, Mina, Bram, Cooper, Hazel, Prusias, Astaroth--even Mum, Bellagrog, Bob--a long list of folks and creatures you really come to love and know. They have strengths and weaknesses, complex feelings and actions and reactions. Good and evil exist, for sure, but you have to think about those categories and what they mean. This series is a wonderful adventure both in its immediacy and upon reflection. It invites revisiting over and over.

An incredible book for an incredible series. Neff did not disappoint with this epic conclusion. This book was one of the few books that satisfied me with its type of ending. Also, he did an amazing job with the plot twists. The plot was twistier than Lombard! All in all, an amazing read, and a satiating end.

I have been waiting for this book.  I got hooked on this series when it first launched and have read each new installment as it has been released.  This capstone book has taken a while to arrive, but it did not disappoint!  The scope and plot lines are truly epic, exceeding the already high standards set by the siege of Rowan, establishment of a new world order, the deceit of Prussas... As a conclusion to this great series, the author did a fantastic job of knitting together all plot threads while maintaining maximum suspense to the very end!  For readers who have engaged  with this series, don't hesitate to follow it through to the end.  For new readers, you will have the pleasure of binge-reading this all the way through.  An amazing and imaginative spectacle, you will get lost in the author's worlds and characters and enjoy the series to the very end!

I actually would consider this ending over Blood of Olympus, although to be honest, BofO had an overused ending plot with a conclusion that made me sad to the core because of its lack of imagination. First off i would give this a 4.5 if i could, but as it turns out the device fails me yet again. Great twists and turns, with a hero who doesn't want to become a god, a genius cambion who is afraid of who he is, and a beggar who wants to become God. Well done. Although the reason this lacks the .5 was because i sort of wanted to see the 'would-be' harbinger in the end....not too sour on it. Te new book is supposed to be about the fairy geen's future descendant. Mixed feelings on that.
