    Awesome

    It breaks my heart to not be able to live this, it does. It's excellent, and that is a loaded word here. Read this trilogy, please.

    Please.

    Awesome conclusion to my favourite trilogy of the past few years. You will probably enjoy this more if you read the three books back-to-back-to-back since I had kinda forgotten about some of the minor characters :-)

    And so it ends. The Mongoliad, then renamed "Foreworld Saga" which started with such promise ends with a whimper, in a stretched-out almost plotless nubbin of a book, and then closes the story with a piff like the flaccid fart of an old nun.

    Had a bit of a hard time finishing the book. At a certain point around 2/3rds of the way in the language got just too flowery and psychodelic.

    In any case, it's pretty good!

    So good.

    The author has a great ear for the tone of a time and place. The end is pretty heartbreaking.
