Night Angel Trlogy 3. Kylar acts and all the many characters from the previous books take their own separate story lines along, seemingly separately, but all building to a grand crescendo at the end.
A satisfying finish. ( )

I started the first book of this series years ago and for whatever reason set it down and just never got back to it until a couple of weeks ago and now I've devoured the whole series. I really liked the series and felt that it got more exciting with each volume great read! ( )

So many of my friends have liked this, but by the time I got to this book, I was just tired of the world, characters, & series in general. I just never felt connected to most of the characters, I guess. Maybe I'll try again some day. ( )

This is the last instalment of the Night Angel Trilogy, and the culmination of all the story threads coming together.

This book picks up the story right from after the big battle at the end of volume two, and the shocking news that Kylar then learned. With both the north and south in turmoil, new leaders arise. In the north, someone has to replace the Godking. But can the character who does be a better ruler than their father was?

In the south, with the city under the control of a certain lady not suited to be Queen, should those who pledged loyalty to her honour that pledge? and should Kylar deal with her?

Amongst the ongoing story there is the one strong moral question: do you do the right thing when the cost is too high? lots of the characters here will have to consider that.

With more battles looming and darkness on the horizon, can it end happily for everyone?

Let's just say you won't forget the end in a hurry.

But then the series ends, and I was left with a huge anticipation of what next? I admired the way that Weeks brought it all together, but the ending left me with the distinct feeling that there’s another series in the pipeline. I'm waiting. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316033669, Mass Market Paperback)

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance - a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom.

In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him.

Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends-and perhaps his enemies-he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Beyond the Shadows
is the action-packed conclusion to the Night Angel Trilogy.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:26 -0400)

In the trilogy's conclusion, Kylar Stern is hired for one last job--to assassinate a goddess.
