In the end, I was disappointed in the series. Scott brings together a lot of fantasy tropes: but he doesn't manage to make the characters fit into a consistent world. The reveals about the Twins' parentage, several times, kept making me say "Oh come on -- that's the author manipulating the world again!" Scott writes well. mostly (though he does fall into "see how much I know about myth and general fantasy, and how I'm fitting that into my story: I'm really clever, see!" at least 3 times per book) -- and in the end, he doesn't make the story hold together fully. I did finish it. It's not bad. But please, go read A WIZARD OF EARTHSEA or Diane Duane's first few Young Wizards stories, and then think about whether this works anywhere near as well.

This book is the best ending to any series I've ever read. Highly recommend this entire series to anyone who loves mythology, stories of immortality, or just enjoys reading good books.

I immensely enjoyed this series. A great conclusion to a well written tale.

Disappointed with the ending. I mean really disappointed. It's such an anticlimactic conclusion.

Best book of the series! Still drags in spots, but Lots of action and lots of mysteries revealed. The ending was *complete* surprise!

Marethyu's identity was so unexpected. I actually guessed his identity a couple pages back from when he revealed his identity and I got it right. I found the series really great although I fond that, Michael Scott kept on making things greater and greater. For example, he introduced Scathach and she was so great but hen he introduced great elders, archons, ancients, and earthlords and it just got a bit wierd. I rated it a 5 though beacause the series was well written and the plot was great.

Overall, it's good, but it can be kind of confusing in some places. For me, there's so many characters, I had a hard time remembering who they were, exactly. The way I see it, there are five categories for the point of view (and one more, if you count Virginia's POV as major): the twins' POV; Scathach and co.'s POV; Prometheus's and Niten's POV; Nicholas and co.'s POV; and the bunch of random character's POVs. The books jumps around these five main catergories - and they're all happening at the same time (at the same time, as in one half of the characters is in the present, and the other is ten thousand years in the past).
I love the way Michael Scott tied everything off and how he revealed the identity of Marethyu - I never would have guessed! I also like the way he "explained" how the others are going to get back in their own time. Yes, "explained" has quotation marks on them. You'll see why.
There are several sad moments near the end - mostly because of the character death(s).
So, this is a satisfying conclusion to an epic series. Very well done.

Leaves off a few seconds before the ending of the Warlock. Josh and Sophie must travel together towards the ending of the prophicie (I know i spelled it wrong) where they will take part in the ultimate battle of time. Meanwhile, Nicholas, Perenelle, Black Hawk, Machievelli, Billy the Kid, Hel Odin, and Mars must fight on Alcatraz to save the shadowrealm of Earth. At the same time Promethius and Niten must hold off the most powerful warriors in history for an entire night. John Dee and Virginia Dare fight to do what's right and the rest of the group fight to save Danu Talis. That's all that can be said without giving out each segments ending.
