MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
39/50 – 2021 Goodreads Challenge
What a fantastic finale to a great series
The ending brought me to tears. I had to take some time to collect myself to write the review after finishing it.
We follow Sigrud as he investigates the murder of Ashara Komayd. Sigrud is one of my favorite characters in all of fantasy, he’s just one of those guys you want to see win. Through his investigations he meets new and old people while dealing with a new powerful enemy that is hellbent on remaking the world to his own liking.
”It is a fool who lives his life believing the waves upon which he sails shall remember him. The seas know nothing. This makes them beautiful. And this makes them terrible.”
Robert Jackson Bennett has such beautiful prose and his attention to detail in everything he does makes this such a great read. The story is gripping and keeps you on the edge of your seat, all
The characters are great and so well written.
”To live with hatred,” says Sigrud, “is like grabbing hot embers to throw them at someone you think an enemy. Who gets burned the worst?”
If you’re reading this, you’ve likely already read books 1 & 2 so I don’t need to sell you on reading this one. You already are!
