    Can't believe I have been going through this series so fast. That's just how good it is. I haven't read many books, I didn't even read the books that were assigned in high school, "thank you cliff notes" (even those I didn't enjoy reading....but this series and surprised me as how much I like reading it. I almost finished each book in the series in two maybe 3 sittings. It's not record breaking for many but believe me, it is a first for me. Can't believe I have been going through this series so fast.

    Exciting and well written Enjoyable as the first books in the series. Continues to surprise and intrigue, which is interesting in that not many series can retain interest like this.

    Alors nous y voici, le grand finale, l'ultime livre de la série, celui qui fermera toutes les portes et nous fera vivre la jouissance d'une fin heureuse.

Après nous avoir fait sourire et aimer les 4 derniers livre on pourrais croire que l'auteur nous réserve le meilleur pour la fin, qu'il s'est garder du stock pour nous faire applaudir sa série et nous faire oublier les écart d'éditing, de typos et de redondance. Ce livre nous fera-t-il crier sur les toits que si tu n'a pas lu la Morcyth Saga tu est un inculte? He bien non. Ce livre n'est pas le bijoux tant espéré, il n'est pas le meilleur de la série et en plus il n'est pas original. Aucune des idées rafraichissante de l'auteur n'y prend place et on doit relire, à notre grande peine, l'histoire du deuxième volume... He oui, l'auteur devait être fier de on idée dans le deuxième volume car il reprend exactement la même prémisse. Le héros entend parler de quelque chose, il va de ville en ville vers ce quelques chose, lui et ses alliers meulent tout ce qui bouge et en suite continue vers le site qu'ils veulent aller (tout en meulant tout ce qui bouge). Si vous avez aimer le deuxième livre, vous allez aimer celui-ci aussi. Mais si comme moi c'est le pire de la série, he bien lui devient le deuxième pire car il est mieux écrit au moins. C'est à croire que l'auteur à manquer d'idées. Quand je disais que le sixième livre semblait faire un build-up vers un final épique, c'était ça. Comme l'auteur l'a gâcher en la mettant à la fin de son sixième livre, il ne s'est pas garder de jus pour donner une raison au héros de faire le chemin pour aller affronter son méchant final. Donc, solution facile, faire promener le héros sur toute la map et l'attirer vers le lair du méchant final et faire un final fight. Il existe tellement d'idées meilleurs pour obliger le héros à se battre contre le méchant que c'est exaspérant de penser qu'on soit obliger de relire ce concept à la final fantasy 7 (En effet je suis des rare qui trouvent que final 7 est à chier). Mais je comprend qu'en finissant son sixième livre de la manière que l'auteur l'a fait, il ne se laissait pas beaucoup de manœuvre. Donc, comme le livre se lit comme le deuxième livre, on pourrait se dire que l'auteur va, comme pour le deuxième livre, sauver la face avec le final. Pas cette fois-ci. En fait le livre fini exactement comme le deuxième livre. Donc aucune surprise, on voit le final arriver à des miles à la ronde et quand on dépose le livre, la seule chose qui sauve ce final, c'est que l'auteur nous fait au moins le bonheur de nous dire ce qui se passe après. J'ai été très déçu par cette finale et ce dernier roman. Je m'attendais au mois à quelque chose d'original ou tant qu'à être dans le cliché, bien le faire. Là on a droit à du réchauffé de réchauffé de restant. Même assaisonné à une meilleur sauf, sa goûte quand même le réchauffé. Donc, de toute manière si vous voulez savoir la fin vous avez, comme moi, pas le choix de lire en entier ce roman. Au pire, garder vos espoirs bas et peut-être aurez vous plus de plaisir que moi à finir cette saga qui aura eu ses hauts et ses bas.

    This is the final book of The Morcyth Saga. I must say right now, if you want a really good read, this 7-book series is one to get and keep. However, there are pluses and minuses in this series. First, the minuses. This author has an awful writing style - bad, bad grammar - he crams more prepositions into one sentence than I ever thought could be possible! Misspelled words - I frequently had to guess the word or the character in the sentence. The unabashed use of repetitive phrases - I bet Pra This is the final book of The Morcyth Saga. I must say right now, if you want a really good read, this 7-book series is one to get and keep. However, there are pluses and minuses in this series. First, the minuses. This author has an awful writing style - bad, bad grammar - he crams more prepositions into one sentence than I ever thought could be possible! Misspelled words - I frequently had to guess the word or the character in the sentence. The unabashed use of repetitive phrases - I bet Pratt used the cut and paste buttons more than any author in the computer age. Every fight scene has nearly the exact phrases and certainly they all have the same order of action. I skimmed through each of these only to be sure my expectations of the outcome weren't left in the dust by an unexpected death. The Same goes for every inn, every road trip, every town ... same action sequences everywhere. So, you may be asking, if the writing is so awful, why did I persevere? Because there are some pluses that are mightier than the minuses. Pratt very capably paints an incredible world full of beauty, mystery, exotic cultures and magic. His characters are amazing - some you hate and some you love. The bad guys are seething with evil and some of them made me feel very uncomfortable spending time in their presence. The ones you love, you fear for them in every fight scene. You see, there is another reason to skim rapidly through those long, drawn out cut/pasted fighting scenes - to find out who lives and who dies. In this final book, as in all the others, there is a very high creepy factor, too. Lots of dark, underground caves with sparkling gems, lakes, rivers with an adrenaline junky's dream of a water slide. There are nasty underground dungeons and evil creatures, red, glowing domes of evil magic, and a creepy cult of warrior priests that use human slaves for their evil magic. And that's just the tip of the ice berg - the story is the real achievement. It holds you through the bad writing style, even if it is a write up of a Dungeons and Dragons game - at least, that's my feeling. The unsuspecting young mage, James enters this dangerous, magical world with only his familiarity with Dungeons and Dragons to use for survival. How unsuspecting a mage he is is not revealed until the very end of this final book. If you like magic, lots of creepy stuff and high adrenaline action, you will love these books, as do I. A great read!

    The Mists of Sorrow, the final book in the series has a very satisfying ending. The reasons why it gets only a three from me are the style and the extremely unedited state (sometimes there are even ungrammatical sentences), having lots and lots of word repetition, and poor wording of sentences. The characters really do not feel lively. They are extremely easy to convince (even experienced generals and fighters), and they are mostly devoid of any gesture during conversations, as if they are perform The Mists of Sorrow, the final book in the series has a very satisfying ending.

The characters really do not feel lively. They are extremely easy to convince (even experienced generals and fighters), and they are mostly devoid of any gesture during conversations, as if they are performing in a theatre. James, the main character is the most curious, however. He, having completely no experience of most things that he gets to know in this new world, grows into commanding experienced men as if he was doing this throughout his entire life, which, let's face it, is not too long so far. Character development is, of course, part of the story, but he becomes really unbalanced. After just about a few paragraphs, he is able to do anything, or accept anything (see the loincloth in book seven). Meanwhile, we rarely see what happens inside any of the characters during the story. A notable example of this is the question of morals. James has trouble accepting the fact that he murders so many men, but there is no indication of this until it suddenly appears in a passage. Two passages later, all's good again: he accepts that he is doing something necessary, and it is never mentioned again. As I have stated in other reviews of the series, with a bit of editing, and possibly rewriting parts of the story, all of this can be improved. Apart from these serious issues, The Morcyth Saga is a pleasant read, however in this state, I feel, it is not going to be remembered for too long.

    I must say I am truly saddened to see this series end. I have looked forward to seeing more of James and Miko. My mother and niece devoured this series, I tried to make it last as long as I could. I think I laughed more in this final book, read quicker not wanting to put it down than I had any of the others prior. The story wraps the series up nicely and gave me a sigh of contentment.

The search for Tinok is the main focus with many interruptions along the way. Miko is again more prominent in this book as well. There is a lot of action, mystery, giving the empire grief and puzzling trials. I will be rereading this series again in the future. Lots of fun. The characters were what made this series so enjoyable.

    all good things come to an end Jihon will not give up on his best friend whom he'd thought lost forever. But battling the evil of Dmon-Li is overpowering the combined strengths of two High Priests and a mage. will a sacrifice be demanded? the series matured as it was written. the endless rides and constant fighting which were so prevalent in the first several books faded to the background as the characters developed. I chose five stars for all of the books as i choose to be entertained rather than all good things come to an end Jihon will not give up on his best friend whom he'd thought lost forever.

    Great story, weak writing. This is the case throughout the whole series. "Then we do stood a chance," he said with a grin. This quote, lifted from the third book is only one of many examples. I read the series anyway and enjoyed it. The writing did set my teeth on edge at times. Great story, weak writing. This is the case throughout the whole series.

    I was captivated till the end - and just when I was thinking - "No, don't end," - what do you know there are more to read on the exploits of James. Loved the 7 books - now I'm eager to read the continuation. Definitely a recommend to all adventure, magic lovers. Well done! And Thank You so much Brian.

    The last book in the saga seemed to have been written in a hurry. Despite the many errors (Morcynth was used instead of Dmon-Li etc.) I did enjoy the book. The ending could have been better but it was what I had expected..

    If it wasn't for my compulsive need to finish a series once I've started, I would have never read this. I would have loved to see the series grow to its full potential, but sadly that didn't happen. If it wasn't for my compulsive need to finish a series once I've started, I would have never read this.
