A FELLOWSHIP OF THREE To stand against the F'dor-- an ancient, vile being intent on destroying the world-- a fellowship has been forged: Rhapsody, a Singer of great talent and beauty; Achmed, an assassin with unearthly talents; and Grunthor, a giant of jolly disposition and lethal skill with weapons. Driven by prophetic visions, the three know that time is running short, know that they must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all. But after their final, brutal confrontation with the F'dor, their world crosses the threshold of disaster and faces utter oblivion. The action reaches a fevered pitch, achieving a crescendo of tragedy, love, and triumph of human spirit over world-shattering cataclysm.

This book got back on track after the excessive romance that dominated the second book. A good conclusion to the trilogy with enough to keep me reading the series. ( )

This book was WAY long, which was why it gets 4 stars (prolly closer to 3.5). I love the main characters, but I really felt like the book dragged on and on and on. So many things happening. And I'm not entirely certain the ending was worth it (the very last chapter). I liked the overall wrap up and will definitely be continuing the series. ( )

Time is running short and the Three know they must find the demon before he plunges the world into darkness. With the knowledge of the locations of the demon spawn children, Rhapsody and Achmed leave Ylorc in Grunthor's hands while they seek each of the children out. If they can find a way to separate the demon's blood from the children it will give them a way to track the F'dor. Hopefully it will be enough.

Destiny is the final book in the Rhapsody trilogy and the third book of the larger Symphony of Ages series. Again the story picks up straight where book two leaves off. There is still a good amount of travel involved, as seems to be common in these books, yet it doesn't seem quite as plodding this time around. We get to see new areas of the world, with more details into the lore and history of the land. The world building in these books is simply amazing. Haydon knows how to create a world that feels alive.

In this book the format changes a bit. Rather than only being focused on the main characters, we are given points of view of many of the side characters introduced in the first two books. This adds a nice depth to those characters and gives insight into how actions of the three are starting to affect the rest of the world as well as the various politics between countries. It also emphasizes just how much the F'dor's influence has spread, adding to a sense of urgency to the main quest.

The love story still plays a part in this book, though less than it did in book two. It does not take over the plot and is mostly brought up at the end of the story.

Haydon does a nice job of tying up all the loose story threads. It is a satisfying ending to the trilogy. ( )

3rd part of an excellent trilogy (though technically she has 3 more books with the same characters). This book is also well worht the price and we have already purchased the 3 that come after so we can see where the characters go.. Good Job!!! ( )
