Curious - this trilogy (a sequel to the Griffin & Sabine trilogy) was in many ways a more exciting story than the first. And the format and artwork was comparable, but somehow, this final volume in the second trilogy did not seem to have the overall impact. This seems solely due to the amount of information Bantock hints at without ever revealing. If you're used to your novels ending in a nice tidy package, this isn't it. However, the overall storyline, the presentation, and the artwork are enough to encourage me to re-read the first trilogy (which I don't recall as well as I should) and then re-read the second, taking a bit more time and dwelling on the hints and symbols. In doing so, one may get a better idea of what exactly happened.Os.

There was a lot of build-up in this novel with no climax, except for that of the two lead characters who finally managed to hook up in Egypt. I guess that was the point. This trilogy was doesn't live up to the first. The speech is too elliptical and the sinister elements seemed tacked on and unnecessary.

A beautiful end to the series, though by no means an easy one to wrap your mind around. While Bantock's art and prose are both stunning, he makes the reader work for the payout. Nothing is directly stated; it's up to you to figure out just what has happened and what it means to the characters. This makes the book both thought-provoking and maddening, to my mind. I'm sure I'll have to read the whole series through a few times more before I come to any definite conclusions about what it all means.
