Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for her lush, intricate worlds and complex characters, acclaimed author Martha Wells has delighted readers with her extraordinary fantasy novels of daring and wit. With The Wizard Hunters and The Ships of Air, she launched her most ambitious undertaking yet—the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy, which returned to the beloved setting of the Nebula Award-nominated The Death of the Necromancer. And now the stunning conclusion to the epic quest to save Ile-Rien ...

Searching for a way to stop the dread Gardier from conquering Ile-Rien, Tremaine Valiarde discovered a new world filled with perils and potential allies. Now aided by her mercurial, mysterious father, Nicholas, and a brave band of heroes, she fights to recover the magical city of Lodun and the chance for hope. But the enemy is relentless, and amid turmoil and danger, only the discovery of a secret portal holds any hope of saving what is left of Ile-Rien. But the ancient portal leads to a mysterious ruin hidden behind the awesome Gate of Gods—a realm of wonder and danger beyond any they have ever imagined ...

Review:

"At the start of the final volume in Wells's imaginative and complex Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy (after 2004's The Ships of Air), her resourceful and witty heroine, Tremaine Valiarde, and a ragtag band of followers have the magic of the Viller spheres to help resist the almost invincible invading Gardier. Unfortunately, too many pieces of the puzzle remain missing for them to effectively defend what's left of the country of Ile-Rien, let alone liberate the rest of it. When the sphere-entrapped sorcerer Arisilde sends them a spell that eventually leads to 'a train station for world-gates,' Tremaine and her cohorts may have finally found a way to drive the Gardier out of Ile-Rien. New readers are advised to start with the first in the series, The Wizard Hunters (2003), as an acquaintance with numerous characters and previous action is essential. Agent, Matt Bialer. (Nov.)"
