“Hard to put down for even a moment. A fittingly epic conclusion to a fantasy series that many consider one of the best of all time.” —San Francisco Book Review

“The most ambitious American fantasy saga [may] also be the finest. Rich in detail and his plot is rich in incident. Impressive work, and highly recommended.” —Booklist

“Recalls the work of Tolkien.” —Publishers Weekly

“This richly detailed fantasy presents fully realized, complex adventure. Recommended.” —Library Journal
