the journey ends
Well, the journey ends, but it was a wonderful trip. A few days ago, I received “A Time of Courage”, the final installment in Gywnne’s “Of Blood and Bone” saga, which actually wraps up the entire “The Faithful and the Fallen” cycle that began with “Malice”. My anticipation to read this book got the better of me, and since I had a few days away from regular work, I resolved to devour it in a few days worth of reading, which I managed to do, finishing this morning. Wow, is all I can say.
Gywnne is a clever, inventive writer who takes the classic fantasy trope of “Dark Lord” versus noble heroes, and throws in enough twists, betrayals, thrilling action scenes, and even some well-sprinkled romance so that you still worry of the outcome, and are glued to every page. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have read by Gwynne, and while it is bittersweet to leave the Banished Lands and their characters behind, I can’t wait to see what Gwynne has in store for us next!
Don’t miss out on reading “A Time of Courage”, it is an excellent novel and kudos to Gwynne for not disappointing with the conclusion to this epic series, no let-down here, it was well worth the wait!
