While God is not specifically mentioned, we know that it is the "Sure-Swift-Hand" that saves them over and over again. For a tale of adventure, virtue and courageous loving leadership - I can't recommend these books too highly! Feb 21, Rondi Olson rated it really liked it. One of the things I really enjoyed about this series was Albion. More than a location, it was part of the story, a character with its own feelings and motives.
No more Albion? Instead, the bulk of this book takes place in The Foul Lands, which, aside from some cool beasts, was a little disappointing. I'm still not sure how The Foul Lands became foul, or One of the things I really enjoyed about this series was Albion. I'm still not sure how The Foul Lands became foul, or why I should care about its fate. The ending was at the same time interesting yet expected. I especially liked the use of point-of-view near the end. The conclusion itself left me a little confused, and I'm not sure exactly what the author was trying to say, but all-in-all it felt like a satisfactory finish.
As a side note, I listen to the audio version, and frankly, it was very difficult. Imagine watching your favorite TV series, and after a hiatus, you come back, and all of the actors have changed. The first two books were narrated by one actor, this last by another. It would be one thing if the second actor had attempted to sound like the first actor, but he didn't, and I'm sure he was fine, but I was used to the voices and recognized each character. Hearing them sound entirely different was grating.
Regarding the entire series, I wouldn't say this is the type of fantasy I normally read, so it wasn't fantastic for me, but I'm sure others would love it. Highly recommended for readers of high fantasy who like hero's journey stories. May 29, Danial rated it did not like it Shelves: fantasy.

While Lawhead did manage to end his love affair with exposition, his entire premise went out the window with this finale. We went from re building a kingdom in a rich tapestry of this fictional world to I, I couldn't finish it. To jump the shark in such a cataclysmic way after working through two very interconnected books is unforgiveable. Blog Twitter Facebook Google Plus.
Oct 15, Liana rated it it was amazing Shelves: alternating-worlds , adventure , mythology , older-ya , bards , adult. I'll have to warn you that the ending isn't exactly a happy one It's actually my favorite of the trilogy! I loved what the characters had to go through and enjoyed how they emotionally handled themselves I thought it was beautiful.
I don't wanna give away too much, but I will say that view spoiler [Lewis DOES return home hide spoiler ] but not in the way you might think. Just read this book if you've read the other two, ok? I couldn't ask for a better one. I liked this trilogy. A lot. However, I must admit the third book was a little too descriptive for my taste. I would skip a sentence here and there, then a paragraph or two as I scanned the text for some sign of moving the plot forward. I may have even skipped a handful of pages near the end when the author rambled on about the changes in the landscape.
An odd pacing choice for a climatic scene. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys epic fantasy that follows in the Christian traditi I liked this trilogy. Dec 06, Eclaghorn rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian-fiction. Best fiction I read all year. Incredible storytelling.
A fantasy work of an otherworldly, Celtic land where life is purer, more real; until invaders from our world find a way in, bringing corruption; and redemption. Dare I call this Lewis or Tolkien like? So much to love here. View 1 comment. Mar 31, Kat Hooper rated it it was amazing Shelves: audiobook. I won't give any spoilers, but this well-written trilogy comes to an exciting, surprising, and fulfilling conclusion in this third book.
I don't usually read a series twice, but I will read this one again. It was terrific! Read more Stephen Lawhead novel reviews at Fantasy Literature. Oct 01, Barbara Stryker rated it really liked it. In the story you will learn of ancient Scotland. If you like Tolkien and CSLewis you will likely let enjoy this series. Read carefully and you will be able to pick out the story of the Lamb of God who gave his life to save us.
I read the whole Song of Albion sequence. An awful lot of words for a little bit of story. I'm not going to give any spoilers but this whole series was great. Oct 02, Jack Vasen rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , christian , adventure. The final book of the series completes the story.

It could possibly be read alone, but much of what came before contributes to this story and without the first two books would be missed. The first few chapters move quickly but then things bog down a little before Llew takes everyone on a rescue quest.
From there on, the tone is dark as the heroes battle their way through a kind of hell inhabited by many fantasy monsters. The ending is controversial but emmotional. Some would say it is a great twis The final book of the series completes the story. Some would say it is a great twist, but I didn't care for some of the devices used to make it happen.
I definitely did not enjoy this book even though I recognize that many people will think it is brilliant. From this point on, if I tag it a spoiler, it really is a spoiler giving away the entire book. Let me give some reasons why I didn't like it. He offers himself as sacrifice for his wife and the others, but it is as much desperation as heroics. He has already made similar offers where he survived. He is killed and is as a result becomes powerless. From there, in many ways it is not a happy ending. Everyone dies, but then they are resurrected.

Goewyn loses her husband and her baby's father. Cynan's wife is a traitor. Nettles dies permanently. And then the author makes what I consider a cheap trick to allow the reader to have at least some happy ending. He brings Lewis back to the material world and gives him a mission and strongly implies a loving Susannah as companion. It is done hastily and the sudden devotion of Susannah defies explanation.
