Diane Duane has been a writer of science fiction, fantasy, TV and film for nearly four decades.
Besides the 1980s creation of the Young Wizards fantasy series for which she's best known, the "Middle Kingdoms" epic fantasy series, and numerous stand-alone fantasy or science fiction novels, her career has included extensive work in the Star TrekTM universe and many scripts for live-action and animated TV series on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as work in comics and computer games. She has spent a fair amount of time on the New York Times Bestseller List, and has picked up various awards here and there-most recently the "Faust" Grand Master Scribe award of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.

It's a Duane, so of course it's saving the world from the Darkness by figuring out who you are and surrendering to truth. She's about as formulaic as Andre Norton - amazing what variety you can get from something that can be described with a simple formula! The Doors series is somewhat frustrating - been waiting for the fourth one for...16 years now? Ah well, it's a good re-read anyway. It does actually come to a reasonable sort of closure - in fact, if she hadn't _said_ there would be a fourth book, this one could be an end. After all, everyone gets married and settles down...for some definition of settles down. And I do mean everyone gets married - all in one marriage! You don't have to worry about how everyone's going to pair off in this one.

This brings Duane's epic fantasy saga to its sweeping conclusion, and epic and sweeping are the right words for it. The King of Arlen and the Queen of Darthen take their people to war against the Shadow and his minions.But she just does it so *well*.And the characters keep derailing this from turning into Just Another Fantasy Novel by being intelligent and mature and capable of *communicating effectively with each other*. And *real*. You come out of it, for all the gloriously happy ending, feeling like it was all a tragedy. Because it was. It was a war.And yes, all seven of the main characters do have a group marriage at the end. You believe that they'll actually be able to pull that through, too, though it may be even harder than the war.
