With Tencendor gone, trapped inside the Tower of Elcho Falling is its Lord Maximilian, fallen god heroic Axis SunSoar, and Serpent Coil Priestess Isabelle Brunelle and their comrades. Though have raised the magic of the tower, they are in deep trouble. Their adversaries are coming from every location tightening the grip on those besieged inside the magic tower. Those who come arrive with one intent: kill all caught inside. From the tundra to the north arrive the traitorous winged Lealfast and from the south come the ferocious Skraelings. However, the most dangerous and lethal enemy is the One, who absorbs Infinity magic from the DarkGlass Pyramid. Those trapped have no hope of surviving for themselves or their world as betrayal by a key ally leaves them seemingly defenseless. Yet Axis raises his Strike Force using the Star Dance magic to fight back while a glimmer might be Ravenna the Marsh witch who no one trusts. The third DarkGlass Mountain fantasy (see The Twisted Citadel and The Serpent Bride) is a great action-packed finish to a top rate trilogy as revelations and twists will keep the audience fully occupied with what comes next. The action never slows down while the cast is top rate. Readers will fully relish Sara Douglas' strong epic as darkness appears poised to win. Harriet Klausner

Some things about this book were really enjoyable, honestly. The excitement, the unexpected plot twists, the edge-of-your-seat action that gripped me and kept me flipping pages up until the very end. The emotion, the power, the strength of the multi-faceted characters, along with the well-crafted words that painted a mystical and beautiful picture...The Infinity Gate has so many good things going for it, but, unfortunately, these things were overshadowed by other items that left me with some mixed feelings about the overall epicness of this book.The main thing? The heavy leaning on utilizing characters from The Axis Trilogy and the Wayfarer Redemption, and bringing far too many characters, plot points and world mechanics from these books into The Infinity Gate. Unfortunately, this has plagued the entire DarkGlass Mountain trilogy. Rather than simply mentioning the connections between this and previous novels, Douglass relies far too much on previous novels to propel the plot forward here. Old characters, especially Axis, and old plots, such as the rivalry between Axis and Borneheld, are given far too much attention here, I really would have preferred something new and more original...it's as if Douglass is so in love with Axis and Tencendor that she just can't let it go and really, it's time to move on to something new and fresh.I wouldn't say The Infinity Gate and the DarkGlass Mountain trilogy is a complete bust, heck, it made me a fan of Sara Douglass again after being discouraged by Hades' Daughter, but she's capable of so much more. Maybe she needs to take a break from Axis and co. and do something a little different...
