“The amazing end to the amazing trilogy that brought riddles and harping and a mystery of three stars to its conclusion. The language and the world are pure McKillip, and the lead-up to the final confrontation/meeting between Morgon and Ohm is everything it promises to be.
My only question on this book is how neatly the threads are tied and the battle is finished. In the world of this book, Morgon repairing the wall by becoming stones is too easy; in the writing of a young author, it is a good way to bring a book to its close and move from one difficult situation to the conclusion.
And the final meeting with Deth the Harpist is heart-wrenching. The love that he shows is finally explained in such a way that it still brings tears to my eyes. Great writing and great emotion.”
