“As with any magnificent series, I’m bereft that this is the last book in the Spiritwalker’s Trilogy.
Kate Elliot once again is a master of vividly creating this fabulous world of mages, magic, dragons and the spirit realm. It is a highly complex world that Elliot brings to life and even though the book is quite lengthy the story is enhanced by Elliot’s descriptive writing.
Cat Barahal is as enchanting as ever, funny and overcoming insurmountable odds. Cat, Bee and Rory are all outstanding characters to follow on their own, add them together you get marvelous results!
Cat must rescue her husband Via from her father, help in the revolution, face down murder charges and destroy her enemies. Of course Rory and Bee are her ever constant companions.
I did find this book a little slower going than book 1 and book 2 which were immense world building and character additions. Cold Steel was it all coming together. Don’t get me wrong, loved the story, loved the conclusion, just missed the fresh and unexpected that the first two books provided.
Without a doubt, Cold Steel is an incredible addition to the Spiritwalker trilogy, a fantasy enthusiast’s perfect read and a book that marks the ending of a wonderful adventure. Thank you Kate Elliot for making your imaginations come to life and sharing it in your brilliant writing.
