Review - The Wicked Day by Christopher Bunn review

The Darkness Awakes...
Tracking the kidnappers of Giverny Farrow, Jute and his friends discover the Dark is on the march. A long-forgotten enemy has emerged from the pages of history. The land of Tormay must be warned in time before it is too late.

In the city of Hearne, Owain Gawinn desperately tries to ready his forces for the coming battle. Little does he know that treachery is stirring within the gates. Tormay teeters on the brink of war, and the duchies look to Jute as their last hope. But there is an ancient evil waking that even all the power of the wind cannot hope to defeat.

With the hawk, the cantankerous ghost and the assassin Ronan at his side, can Jute save Tormay? On one final, stormy day, the fate of the land will depend on his choice...

4 stars

The Wicked Day (The Tormay Trilogy #3) by Christopher Bunn is the conclusion of the Tormay Trilogy.  The book continues to follow the same cast of characters with a few stepping the importance of their roles up a bit.  This book also has the final confrontation with the Dark and show Jute continuing to mature with the use of his abilities as the Wind.

As the third book in the series if you are considering this book because you enjoyed the first two then there is no reason for hesitation.  Christopher stays true to the writing style that he has established for the series and that is an excellent thing.  His skill with descriptive narrative is once again on display in this book.  Honestly with this being the conclusion there is not a lot of info needed in a review and I really don't want to provide any kind of spoilers, so I'll say that if books one and two held your interest at all do yourself a favor and finish the trilogy.  Bonus points for some fantastic cover art as well!


  1. This is a trilogy I'm considering. Thanks for the review. Also, I think the cover art is pretty darn good, too.

    1. When I wrote the review it actually had a different cover lol. The new one is still good so I can leave that comment in the review.
