The incredible conclusion to the Inheritance Trilogy, from one of fantasy's most acclaimed stars.

For two thousand years the Arameri family has ruled the world by enslaving the very gods that created mortalkind. Now the gods are free, and the Arameri's ruthless grip is slipping. Yet they are all that stands between peace and world-spanning, unending war.

Shahar, last scion of the family, must choose her loyalties. She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves. Yet her duty as Arameri heir is to uphold the family's interests, even if that means using and destroying everyone she cares for.

As long-suppressed rage and terrible new magics consume the world, the Maelstrom -- which even gods fear -- is summoned forth. Shahar and Sieh: mortal and god, lovers and enemies. Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens?

Includes a never before seen story set in the world of the Inheritance Trilogy.

In this book, we get to know Sieh the Trickster, oldest of the godlings, as he rendered mortal by a strange curse. I loved the character of Sieh in the first two books, so I was glad to get to know him better -- although he is insufferable lot of the time. The supernatural mystery is even more a page turner in this book than in the previous two - the clock is counting down not only on Sieh's mortality, but on the power of the Arameri Empire and the life of the universe. Epic stakes! You may find yourself staying up way past your bedtime to finish, like I did.

The writing in this book remains very good, but its length and plot were disappointing in the end, it felt like the author wanted to cram in too many characters and tie up too many loose ends for it to be workable. Also, the first person narrative, which worked so well in the preceding two novels, is more of an impediment here as the narrator is far less sympathetic or engaging.

What a let down! Loved the first book. Thought the second book was okay, and now this one--ugh!
