Review by: Scott
The Rise of Cridon by Douglas Brown brings the Epertase trilogy to a close. This is a book that I have been looking forward to for a long time and it did not disappoint. As it has been close to a year since I read A Kingdom's Fall it took me a while to get reacquainted with the characters.
There is not a whole lot that I can say about the plot without spoiling the events of the first two books so I'll stick with the fact this book has everything you would want from an epic fantasy conclusion. There are duels, battles, fantastic creatures, amazing characters, and of course a dragon.
The book does contain a plot element that I didn't enjoy involving my favorite character. Now I'm not sure if that detracts from the enjoyment of the book, or says something about the writing that something bad happening to one of the characters caused me to have an actual emotional response. The latter is probably a more fair evaluation of the series as a whole even though it did cause a bit less enjoyment for part of the third book.
